You’ve heard me discuss THE SUPOON. But friends, allow me to introduce you to its sister, THE CHOPULA. The Chopula is, as you’d imagine, exactly what it sounds like. It is a spatula, that also chops. It’s made of a material that is both magically firm AND flexible, and has a bend in its handle that allows you to set it on your counter without having to MOP THEM LATER. This tool is ideal for all of your sautéing and flipping needs like making eggs, pancakes, you get the picture. Also it comes in cute colors so there's that.
It is the summer of the bikeshort, there’s no denying it. Not difficult to imagine the rise of the bikeshort given than its basically just small leggings.

MAJOR sale alert, my people. Varley, one of my new favorite obsessions for high quality athleticwear and athleisure, and tons of their stuff is on sale right now across the web. This is a rarity for the brand and it’s a moment to take advantage of, even if you’re shopping off-season styles. Just grab them now at a bargain, and pull them out of your closet, brand new, come fall. Specifically, I'm talking about this half-zip and matching leggings or this glorious ivory sweatshirt that you've seen me wear a lot recently that's on sale as well!

You heard me. Bibs. Bibs with sleeves. Why do I need bibs with sleeves you ask? Because babies eat with their entire bodies, that’s why. These are GENIUS (we also have this adorable flamingo version) and prevent the need for a full bath after every meal. Thank you to the parent who came up with this. We all, collectively, owe you one.
You know what I hate? Getting up. You know how I solve that problem? With a bed shelf. That’s right, this shelf attaches to the side of your bed and holds all the annoying things that require...you know, movement. I like to use it for “bed snacks,” but you go ahead and deploy it for whatever purposes best suit you.
Shorts are cool. Because they are not pants. Pants are hot, because they are not shorts. Do you see what happens when I overheat? I become a philosophy professor. Look, it’s hot outside, and I want some shorts that are elevated above “gym clothes,” you know? These affordable bermudas are effortlessly chic and certain to keep me from melting into the sidewalk.
