shit i bought and liked no. 41: sometimes shit is complicated

Hi Shitters, So this rec is of the crime drama/murder mystery variety, and even though I’ve been thinking about sharing it for a while now, it’s the rare item that I questioned whether or not I should send out. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it—I had such a good time with the first one we … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 41: sometimes shit is complicated

shit i bought and liked no. 40: operation get my parents to stop wearing merrells in public

Shitters! I did not wake up today planning to write to you, but a couple things happened that made this email ESSENTIAL. First, it's International Women’s Day. I am a woman, and my preferred method of being respected is being compensated well for my work, but if you are not affiliated with places that can do … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 40: operation get my parents to stop wearing merrells in public

shit i bought and liked no. 39: the cookbooks

Shitters. I’m back in your inboxes in RECORD time because when I asked for recs to diversify my cookbook wall last week, you all sent over so many great picks that I just couldn’t wait.  Far and away, Samin Nosrat’s Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat was the recommendation I received most. If I copy/pasted in all the praise you had for this … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 39: the cookbooks

shit i bought and liked no. 38: that’s amore, fam

Shitters! First of all, I hope everyone is safe and warm after the crazy snowstorms in TX/across the country last week. If you, like me, are still lambasting father of the year Ted Cruz, I hope you are bringing that same energy to helping the people of Texas—many of whom are/will still be suffering the consequences of … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 38: that’s amore, fam

shit i bought and liked no. 37: this is a safe space

Shitters. Once again, any attempt at a content calendar I once may have had has been foiled by this thing we call life MOVING WHILE MERCURY IS IN RETROGRADE, which has left me with the harsh realization that moving is literal hell on Earth unless you live anywhere but a shoebox NYC apartment moving 10 blocks south … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 37: this is a safe space

shit i bought and liked no. 35: the spectrum of januaries

Shitters! We’ve made it out of the obligatory “Happy New Year!” email intro period, which means I can finally make my 2021 debut in your inbox. MISSED YOU ALL!  This week’s rec feels very “January,” but I wanted to take a lil temp check before we get started juuuuust so we’re on the same page here. I … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 35: the spectrum of januaries

shit i bought and liked no. 34: a foolproof formula for nye

Much has been said about New Years Eve. Some of you completely fucking hate it. I’ve been there—at a bar with an exorbitant cover in frigid Chicago with zero eligible bachelors in sight. My entrance into 2018 was NOT A GREAT ONE, except for when the girl shoving her way past me in the coat check … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 34: a foolproof formula for nye

shit i bought and liked no. 33: better than whole30

My sweet, sweet Shitters. Every December I say I’m going to write you all a gift guide, and every December… I don’t. It turns out that even in a pandemic, when there is literally nothing safe to do outside of your home, I still cannot find it within myself to be remotely productive this time … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 33: better than whole30

shit i bought and liked no. 32: a sacred time

SHITTERS. It’s Black Friday—a sacred time for our kind. You’d think as someone who has been prepared for the sales days in advance (ok, a full week, sue me), I would’ve had a pre-write all set, but fuck it, WE’LL DO IT LIVE. The following is a small collection of stuff I absolutely love that makes … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 32: a sacred time
