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?

shit i bought and liked no. 25: 69 days until the election (nice)

Shitters! Today we’re getting straight into it because there are approx 69 days until the Election and I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO WASTE. The last time we spoke I asked for sleep shorts recs and you all came back to me with SO MANY GOOD OPTIONS, WOW. I am happy to report that I … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 25: 69 days until the election (nice)

shit i bought and liked no. 24: “be yourself” 101

Shitters! Thank you for your thoughtful responses to the last newsletter. Though this week is a bit of a return to what you’ve come to expect around here (products! yippee!), caring about systemic racism wasn’t a box to check on my content calendar. As you probably have gathered by now, a) there is no content calendar, … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 24: “be yourself” 101

shit i bought and liked no. 22: woo-woo west coast granola lib

Guys. When I first drafted this email, the opening was about Bernie, Liz, private insurance, and a saga that was not entirely unlike the life story of a food blogger you’d find atop a recipe for banana nut muffins. That all feels woefully irrelevant now, so I have PIVOTED. Why do I even bother with … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 22: woo-woo west coast granola lib

shit i bought and liked no. 21: there are bouncers at my grocery store

So, shitters. I’ve spent the past week or so grappling with the ethics of sending you recs on shit to buy during a full blown pandemic clusterfuck unlike anything we’ve seen in our entire lifetimes (that link goes to the CDC so no one can accuse me of sending a COVID email without the right COVID resources).  … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 21: there are bouncers at my grocery store

shit i bought and liked no. 20: roast me to hell

Alright team, real question—are you gonna roast me to hell if I admit to enjoying some unnecessarily expensive shit? I mean, the NYPost tried (incredibly unsuccessfully) to do that to AOC this weekend, and seeing as I am equally beloved by the general public, it feels unwise to make that mistake! REGARDLESS. I will brave the … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 20: roast me to hell

shit i bought and liked no. 19: pre-instagram era 17-year-olds

Shitters! I had a whole other newsletter prepped and READY TO GO, but lo and behold, Amazon SOLD OUT of my shit! Can you believe?! Just another instance of a corporate behemoth stamping out a SMALL BUSINESS. Instead of leaving you hanging for another week, I decided to do what I do best: Ignore all signs that I … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 19: pre-instagram era 17-year-olds

shit i bought and liked no. 18: bernie is a nice man

Shitters! Profuse apologies are annoying, but I really am sorry for the extended hiatus. I had a bunch of good suggestions lined up for your holiday gifting, but looks like your office White Elephant will just have to wait until next year for a Clapper.  I have no real excuse for my absence—just buying tons of shit, stalking Joanna Czech’s … Continue reading shit i bought and liked no. 18: bernie is a nice man
