Hello from swampy Los Angeles! How have you been? It’s been ages. You look so good! Have you gone keto? Are you dermaplaning?
Recently, I attended a party where someone asked me what I do for a living. When I told them, they said they couldn’t imagine writing every day because it’s “just not fun.”
Let me clue you in on a little something — sometimes, it’s NOT fun!!
I log on and do this shiz every. single. day. Deals pieces on Apple TVs don’t just grow on trees. My “writing” job involves researching, drafting, editing, updating, SEO software, endless Slack conversations about heds and H2s, reading analytics software and uhhh trying to make it all sound interesting so somebody will click or buy.
Then I get to share the damn thing and have you bitches DM me some variation of “TLDR LOL which is better?”
Obviously, I’m a glutton for punishment. Harry Styles did to Chris Pine what I guess I appear to be begging all of you to do to me every time I share anything.
But I love writing. Especially when I get to write about whatever the hell I want. Unfortunately, ~this~ can be really fun for me. But somewhere between 2021 and 2022 I lost the thread. My professional writing life took the wheel and the part of me that likes to gab about buying things, inventing new careers and deleting Facebook fell asleep in the backseat.
Well, she’s awake now and she wants to stop at Starbucks.
My goal is to write something on here every day for the rest of the month. It might not be good. It might be silly. It might be embarrassing. It will probably be about shopping/eating/HBO programming.
Read it or don’t. I just want to have some fun writing before I inevitably delete this thing.
Here are some recent fun things I purchased/want to buy:
I am now the proud owner of a pair of those Birkenstock Boston clogs that everyone is wearing.
Have you heard of skin cycling? I’m trying it out and this is my new go-to retinol.
L.A. is a sauna right now….this tinted, blurring skin balm stays in place and keeps my skin from getting oily.
Tell me why I NEED these boots. P.s. are cowboy boots over? Or are we just getting started? Discuss in the comments.
This scalp oil changed my life. I’m probably going to do a whole piece on it because it’s just that good.
I read this Ottessa Moshfegh book in one sitting.
You know I’m a hoops girl. I would love a new pair for fall. I’m thinking these?
When will it be cold enough to wear a crewneck!! I have never been to North Dakota but that does NOT stop me from wanting this amazing sweatshirt!
Speaking of crewnecks, it’s football szn. Bear down, bb! I’m on the hunt for a cute vintage Chicago Bears sweatshirt that I can wear when my boyfriend drags me along to watch the big game. So far I’ve found this option. It’s listed as “funny vintage” but that’s probably because the Bears usually lose. See! I know sports. Urlacher has hair!
Are you in LA? You need to have dinner here. Order the hummus ful and get the lamb skewers. You’re welcome.
BTW I don’t have a BeReal account. Stop asking!!
