Already looking forward to the Honest Haikus!! Someone asked yesterday about unscented hair products (maybe Caroline?)––I use REF Stockholm Sweden––you can buy it through salons and Amazon carries some of their products. There is a scent when you apply the different products, but it is faint and fades quickly. It’s also vegan, sulphate and paraben free and “climate compensated” whatever that means. I use three of their products and my hair is shiny and soft so I love it.
When my mom was in her ’70s I asked her how old she was in her mind. No hesitation “19”
I, myself, have always been 42. (Even as a teen). In real life I’m 66.
YES. I’ve always been 40 and now I’m 62. 🙂
One of the weirdest things about turning 60 is how I still feel like I’m way too young to be 60. I saw this story awhile back, but I don’t want to pay for a subscription (because I would invariably forget to cancel the subscription).
How about more ideas for Paris shopping, from prior trips or expats? Ladies?
This woman is from Texas and her store is highly regarded:
I was in Paris in January and can confirm that Linda V Wright’s shop is worth a stop. She is gracious and her staff is excellent. Beautiful cashmere. I’ve been following her for years and was so happy to go there/meet her.
Following. We will be there in May.
Thank you for the McSweeneys links – I always send them to my college friends and they are always perfect for a laugh among us.
Atlantic story looks good, but is behind a paywall 🙁
I’m sure this VF article is of interest to GOAC readers:
Thanks for the link; this era of J Crew makes me so nostalgic for my college years. IG account @lostjcrew is a great place to dive into that nostalgia.
God, I need to delete this photo. I’ve changed quite a bit in the 12 years since it was taken!
Great read, thank you!
