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

shit i bought and liked no. 31: lame ass duck

Shiiiiiitters! We did it. We made it. The Election is OVER continuing each and every day as our LAME ASS DUCK does his delusional little tweets and we attempt to relax despite the fact that the fate of (arguably) the rest of our lives/world rests on two runoff elections in Georgia. Deep breaths.We (the community of shitters) have not … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 31: lame ass duck

shit i bought and liked no. 30: there’s a new influencer in town!!!

Shitters! Omg. The time has come. We’re one week out from the Big Day and at the point where regardless of your level of involvement in news and politics, everyone’s stressed. Welcome to the club! Before we get into the latest shit, I just gotta say—this weekend is the last one we have, and in a … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 30: there’s a new influencer in town!!!

shit i bought and liked no. 29: PRIIIIIIIIME DAY

Shit. Ters. The last two times I sent this newsletter, MAJOR news broke very shortly afterwards (first, RBG’s death—may she rest in peace, second, DJT’s corona—all comments withheld, no further questions at this time). Given that track record, I have been understandably nervous to send this next one, but of course the (shit) show must … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 29: PRIIIIIIIIME DAY

shit i bought and liked no. 28: mARiJuANa

Shitters. We’re what—33 days out? We just watched the most batshit debate in the history of humankind. THIS IS A STRESSFUL TIME. We all have our preferred coping mechanisms, which, if you are like me, are largely not great for you, your body, and/or your bank account. But if you aren’t already mainlining a CBD … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 28: mARiJuANa

shit i bought and liked no. 27: shit the vote

Shitters. At the moment there are a lot of highly influential people out there telling you to vote. Michelle Obama. LeBron James. Those guys who do Pod Save America. All of which got me thinking—I too am a *highly* influential person. I mean, here I am influencing all of you on a regular basis! It’s high time I get my … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 27: shit the vote

shit i bought and liked no. 26: is it kosher to write about your boobs on the internet?

Shitters! I am back in your inboxes in record time because guess what? Deadlines are a thing when you work with A BRAND! Yes that was an extremely non subtle flex, but I started this newsletter as an unhappy writer who couldn’t really remember what my own voice sounded like, and now there are humans AND brands who … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 26: is it kosher to write about your boobs on the internet?
