Why shop from your sofa?


Because shopping in a mall is like going for a walk and getting clobbered in the head with a ball.  Like, outta nowhere.

The benefit of shopping online is that no one can steal your fave jeans out of a retail store pile, right in front of you. Right.In.Front.Of.You. Riiiiiiiiiiiiight. In. Froooonnnnnnt. Of YOU.

I don’t do malls but online shopping, Etsy & Sales are my three amigos.

  Malls are a total gong show.   They are so 1982.

Annnnnd the line ups are slow. I’ve seen jello move faster.


Bra off.  Sweats on.  Insert coffee to begin.  SHOP at home.


We can do this. And by we, I mean you.  I already found you the best of the best of theeeee bestest finds online.

Ready?  Set.  GO!

 This week,  I promise I won’t tell you to have a bath.  Except, I already did.   I’m going to do it again.  So.Dang.Good.

I can promise you I won’t talk about Etsy awesomeness. Never. Nevah evah.  Also, I’m completely lying.

Did you see all my Etsy faves?  T’die for.   Blow you over with a feather.  THAT good.

1.   This facial mask.  You will most certainly freak your face.

2.  I love this Le Crueset pot …. but for $275,  I think they should include lobster. This one is wayyyyy more affordable.

3.   I don’t remove my makeup. I know it’s bad for my skin and I’ll probably go blind but WHATEVER. By not removing it, I don’t have to put on makeup the next day either.  For the win.

4.   Finding scissors  in my house is like finding Nemo.  Please tell me that you have this problem too. ps. These are ROSE COLOURED! <- I screamed that! Purty.

5.   Let’s talk about something dirty.  We all do it.  It starts with an F.  Folding laundry. Laundry is a jerk.  Will this aromatherapy help solve laundry woes?   HALP.

6.   Scarves are like what socks are in my house. I have piles of both but can never find either when needed.  Life is complicated.

7.   I could sure use a glass of wine and my own private island right now.

8.   This iPhone case.  I’d totally put a ring on it.

9.  I haven’t slept since forever.   The problem with the internet is that you can buy stuff in the middle of the night.  How cozy does this sweater look?  VERY.

10.    This is seriously. Perfection. ‘Nuff said.

11.   This perfume.  Stunner of a bottle and super handy if you have a voodoo doll.

12.   This bluetooth speaker is beyond fabulous and needs to be in my bra.

13.    This marble shelf floors me.  Shelves me.  Wait.

14.   I feel like people who eat their dinner on these plates, really have their lives together.

15.   If only my teeth were as white as my legs.

16.   Frizzy hair? Coconut oil. Dry skin? Coconut oil.  Bad credit? Coconut oil.

17.    Is there an amber bottle addiction anonymous program?  Sign me up.

18.   Holiday priorities, people.

19.   If I was a zillion trillion gazillion billionaire, I would totally buy this.

20.   I feel like this would make beer my BFF.

21.   I need a face cream that hides the fact that I haven’t slept since 2010.

22.  Techie gadgets are all over the internet, so you’re poised to be Captain Cool with this.

23.  Bed, meet your maker: I use this white linen duvet cover on every single bed in the house.  Judge me.

24.   When I am lying in bed trying to fall asleep, all I can think about is what bank I’m going to rob so I can buy this chair.

25.   Check this out. It’s only a billion trillion gazillion dollars.  Let’s get two!!  You go first.

26.   How do I like my eggs? Uhhhm, in a cake.  This would validate my cake obsession.

27.   Is there a good foot treatment that will make my tootsies super sexy and stop them from looking like a dried-up-oompha-loompha ? Which is obviously a word.

28.   Good movie + popcorn + knitting + detox bath  = see you never

29.   This honeycomb dish is $14.  Otherwise known as a score.  Oooooo. This creamer.  This sugar dish.  Otherwise known as stealing.

30.   So I found all this Wayfair gorgeousness for my kitchen. I did the boom-chicka-wow-wow-happy-dance.  Then I tripped & fell on my face.   Then I stood back up to see if anyone was looking.  What was I saying?

31.   Usually, at home, it’s just me and a bunch of table lamps laughing about how much dusty tumbleweed is under the table. But I love table lamps.  They’re always by your side.

32.   Relax, there’s whiskey.

33.   This Ombre iPhone case is becoming my new best friend.  STAT. Unless you buy for me.  Then you will be my new BFF.

34.   Get stoned with these coasters and marble tray.  Do NOT tell my mother that I said that.  Kidding, Mom.  Not kidding, everyone else.

35.   Weird?  Don’t answer that. It wasn’t a real question.

36.   Life is too short to wear boring clothes.

37.   This blanket.  If I died tomorrow, it would be my last wish.

38.   This would be amazing.  On opposite day.

39.   I wear these every single day INSIDE my house.  Aren’t you happy I’m not a fashion blogger?

40.   I went on a search for shoes, but instead I found these and I screamed.

41.    I made a delish charcuterie tray!  There was cheese. crackers. And a glass of wine. Times three.  It was the best day of my life.

42.    Because your eyebrows simply cannot look like a furry caterpillar no mo.

43.    Time flies when you’re having rum.

44.   I really think this is a concrete idea.

45.    These gold headphones are d’bomb diggity. Sorry I said bomb diggity. I espesh love the white ones.  You can totally gift them to me.  Me-no-complain-o.


p.s.   go shop.

p.s.s.    Do it. do it. do it.  <— that was me hypnotizing you.

p.s.s.s.   but don’t do it in a mall.

p.s.s.s.s.   Wait!  If you go in a mall, tell me what happened.   Will you throat punch anyone?  Taser someone when they steal your parking spot?  Inappropriate questions?

p.s.s.s.s.s.s.s.   okay bye.


Hey. Wait.  One more thing.  I need to find some great razors.   Any ideas?  Where do you buy yours?

    Hi Karen!

    I couldn’t find your knitting needle order anywhere in our system, unless you purchased them from me under a different name and address. Is it possible that you bought them from someone else?

    Either way, no problemo…we shipped you a set of knitting needles today. We hope you love them!

    Happy knitting!
