We’re instituting a new tradition here at Feministe: Friday Favorites. We’ll post some of our favorite things, and then you post some of your favorite things, and we will all share favorites. It will be fun and great and fun. And funnest of all, there are no rules! You can post anything that is a current favorite. So here we go with a few of mine:
It’s so good!
Last week I was at the Winn Discount, a sort of has-everything store in my neighborhood, and there was a teenage girl (maybe 14?) in line in front of me with her mom. As she was going through the line, she grabbed a lip balm off the counter and said, “Oh my GOD mom, have you tried this lip balm?!?! IT IS THE BEST. THIS LIP BALM WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND IT TASTES SO GOOD AND SMELLS GOOD TOO. AND IT IS ONLY $4.50 AND AT SEPHORA IT’S LIKE $8 SO WE HAVE TO GET IT.” And her mom, wisely, was like, “Ok.” After they checked out, I totally grabbed some of the lip balm for myself, because 14-year-old girls typically know what’s up when it comes to good-tasting and good-smelling lip products (see, e.g., Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers). It was this lip balm. And she was right, it’s amazing, and it smells good and tastes good (I got the mint kind) and makes your lips kind of glossy, and it is my favorite thing this week.
Our own Lauren sent me this Etsy store and now I really want this sweatshirt. And at $28 it’s a real steal.
Some dude on Twitter got mad at me the other day and told me never to have children because I’m a “zero class cat lady” (lack of hyphen between “zero” and “class” his, not mine). That was by far my favorite insult of the week.
Ok your turn!
