Usually I dislike Lana Del Rey, but maybe I like...
On Being a Hero
“For Berry and the others to be rescued, in other words, two things had to happen: she had to never forget who she was, and that who she was mattered; and Ramsey needed to not care who she might be at all—to think that all that mattered was that a woman was trapped behind a door that wouldn’t open, and to walk onto the porch.” —Amy Davidson, The New Yorker ”What Charles...
8 Arguments In Support Of Sweatshop Labor →
In response to ’90s scandals through the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse, points made by leading economists and journalists including Paul Krugman and Nicholas Kristof at The New York Times . Another look. Sweatshops are sad. Not having sweatshops at all might be sadder. But with things like micro-loans, education, and skills training (still waiting for my SoleRebel shoes, come...
Not really problems: beauty
I am growing out my eyebrows, not that they really need growing out, and I was going to get them waxed or threaded, but now I’ve chickened out. Time to get a new tweezer, I guess? Does it even really matter? I like a strong brow, they make the face so expressive, but something neat and manicured looks more elegant. What are your thoughts on eyebrows?

Everything Will Change
I’m listening to Rilo Kiley and having not a care in the world. It feels like college again, living in a dream world. I’m feeling nostalgic. Have I really gotten so far? Has it already been 3 years since I graduated college? I have a graduate degree and everything! My life has changed so much since the bright eyed 16 year old stepped onto campus and thought she was so cool. I know...
Things I Love: March Edition
1. The Body Shop Cocoa Butter: Somehow, my chemistry works really well with this slightly buttery, nutty smell and it all smells warm and sweet in my room when I put this stuff on. It also blends really well with my perfume. 2. Cuties! Everyone loves these tiny tangerine things right? 3. Game of Thrones Book 1-3: I can’t even look at the 4th book. It looks awful. But this series has been...

Resolution update and Fashion musings.
I’ve been keeping up with my new year’s resolution! Although I’m tempted every day, and fighting an online shopping addiction, I have only purchased one pair of shoes so far (accessories is ok, although not encouraged). I’m almost considering going back to Polyvore or Pinterest just to satiate my shopping needs. The fight continues! I can’t believe this...
So I’m almost at my 6 month mark at my job! I want to treat myself to a gift, and I think it’ll probably be shoes. Can’t decide if I want to splurge on the United Nude Mobius pump, or get the navy Eames pump that’s on sale right now, or the grey solid mid pump, also on sale. Or both the shoes on sale… It’s not like I’m rolling in dough or anything. I just...
