shit i bought and liked no. 70: travel pants

Hi Shitters! I’m coming to you live today from the basement of my childhood home, where I’m confined because I’ve managed to contract COVID AGAIN. Ugh. This would be more or less annoying but fine, but the timing coincided with a girls trip I was reeeeally looking forward to, and lemme tell you—the basement my … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 70: travel pants

shit i bought and liked no. 69: period talk

Shitters.  I wish this was getting to you all under better circumstances, but it is yet another devastating day in America. Sure, this is where the right has been taking this country for a while, but if your feelings haven't yet caught up to the gravity of this particular moment, let this clip of Elizabeth Warren shake you … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 69: period talk

shit i bought and liked no. 68: pretend like you read this yesterday during women’s history month

Shitters! This was supposed to get to you on the last day of March to acknowledge Women’s History Month but someone over here can’t read a calendar (that someone is me… oops). The good news? Thinking about women’s history doesn’t have to be confined to a single month of the year. And as a woman myself, I think … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 68: pretend like you read this yesterday during women’s history month

shit i bought and liked no. 67: the truth about skims…

Bad news, team… Skims are good.  You may have learned this fact upon reading this article in The Cut last year. It wasn’t that I didn’t believe them (I worship the ground The Cut walks on), but I wasn’t in enough need to part with precious dollars that could go towards any of the other shit I wanted to buy at the … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 67: the truth about skims…

shit i bought and liked no. 66: happy black history month!

Shitters! Happy Black History Month! I know it’s the very last day, but I've been working on this newsletter for a while and wanted to share before we head into March. Supporting black businesses is one way to observe the occasion (and obviously not something to be confined to this month alone!), but I don’t want … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 66: happy black history month!

shit i bought and liked: no. 65: zero zuckerberg vibes

My sweet shitters, I hope this newsletter finds you well doing better than you were during the fucking shitshow of a month that was January. I’ve been sitting on this draft for a minute dealing with the latest five alarm fire this week (is Mercury actually out of retrograde because it’s NOT REALLY FEELING LIKE IT), but these recs … Continue reading shit i bought and liked: no. 65: zero zuckerberg vibes

shit i bought and liked no. 64: the clueless boyfriend’s guide to valentine’s day

Shitters! We are BACK with another clueless boyfriend’s guide—this time for VALENTINE’S DAY. You might be thinking: It’s January and/or I’m not a (clueless) boyfriend. Doesn’t matter. The phrase gets you guys to open emails, and starting to think about this in January gives you a little more time to be thoughtful than the alternative—remembering that … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 64: the clueless boyfriend’s guide to valentine’s day

shit i bought and liked no. 63: sweater shaver

Shitters!!! Happy New Year!!!  It’s January—a time for self-improvement. And in that spirit, I wanted to take some of your feedback about this newsletter and see what we could do. By far the biggest ask that you all had was for more things for guys. Or maybe not SPECIFICALLY for guys, but applicable to more than … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 63: sweater shaver

shit i bought and liked no. 62: 2021 wrapped

My sweet Shitters,  As 2021 comes to a close, we once again find ourselves in the stretch of structureless time between Christmas and New Years. I usually spend this week vegetating in front of the TV, consuming an alarming number of cookies, and, of course, reflecting on the past year. That last one is what led me to write … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 62: 2021 wrapped

shit i bought and liked no. 61: holiday gifting edition

SHITTERS! I have all but abandoned you in your greatest time of need—holiday gifting season. And for that I apologize. But I’m currently writing this from JFK’s Air India Lounge on hour three of delays, so as you may be starting to sense, the straits have been somewhat dire. Not to worry—there is still SOME … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 61: holiday gifting edition
