goop for geriatric millennials 🌸 unsolicited recommendations from someone who tries to have it together
The dream sequences in Gossip Girl are almost as iconic as the wardrobe of the teen drama that truly defined all teen dramas. By far, one of the best was the dance number featured in season five of the glitzy little show. The nod to Marilyn Monroe, the foil between Blair and Serena, the makeup, the wardrobe–it’s one of the more memorable dream sequences of… Read more Continue reading a jewelry pen way more useful than dan humphrey
Chick-fil-A and I have a complicated relationship. I’ll eat it. But I won’t go out of my way to do it. CFA reminds me of that weird hyper-religious girl that loves horses, Jesus, odd skirts, and crucifying and judging other people for their actions. Think of Mandy Moore, and Amanda Byne’s character in Easy A. You know exactly who I’m talking about. I’ll eat CFA,… Read more Continue reading popeye’s snatching the crown from jesus chicken
I am someone who probably stays up too late and doesn’t get as much sleep as they should. I also work in fundraising, where you are perpetually tired and hustling to save the world, which may be a part of it. Guys who work in finance have cocaine, I have this Neuro energy gum which gives me the biggest blast of energy. At first I… Read more Continue reading non-neurotic brainy magic energy gum
I am not a huge fan of hard candy. I have always loved candy you can munch on and chew, which is why my favorite candies are gummies and truffles. I like candy I can bite into. Plus, there’s just something about hard candies that reminds me of a grandmother’s purse full of coins, photos of their grandchildren, and multicolored potentially expired hard candies. I… Read more Continue reading the emily gilmore of hard candies
The Whole Foods Hot Bar, although ostentatiously overpriced and the representation of a pretentious and classist cafeteria buffet, will always hold a very special place in my heart. I know all about the Whole Foods, “whole paycheck” jokes and how ridiculously overpriced it is. But no matter how bourgeoisie and white af it is, I cannot stay away. It’s like the fratty pre-law guys I… Read more Continue reading hacking the hot bar with leaves
I bought some telephone cord hair ties at CVS on a whim–they were $3 for six of them, and I’m proud to say I still have 5 of 6 (pour one out for the homie that we lost at Lollapalooza). I don’t know what it is about those black hair ties every girl has around their wrist, but they are so freaking easy to lose.… Read more Continue reading inexplicably good hair ties you won’t lose
There have been some very strange collaborations of this century. Lil Nas X and RM? Cheetos and bagels with cream cheese (OK this one gives me Midwest middle school vibes)? Elon Musk and Grimes? Man oh man the list goes on. However, something that I have always found extremely weird is the constant combination of makeup and food. Listen, we’re not kids walking through Kohl’s… Read more Continue reading food and makeup, the strangest collaboration
I think we as a society have grown accustomed to covering things up. The Jeffrey Epstein debacle that happened over the weekend is a prime example of that. I will leave this to the experts, as I am not one, but rather a Shonda Rhimes enthusiast and Reddit conspiracy theory thread reader, but come on…..24/7 suicide watch and he’s gone? Tricky tricky. This scandal got… Read more Continue reading concealer that covers up almost all your problems
The keto diet has become wildly popular in recent years. It’s mostly because people love shortcuts and fatty dairy products, and the keto diet encompasses both. People will do absolutely anything to cut corners, people will also do absolutely anything an excuse to eat copious amounts of cheese and butter. Trust me, I’m lactose intolerant and you’ll still see me chowing down on some jalapeño… Read more Continue reading is healthy candy an oxymoron
Everyone has different thoughts when it comes to birthday cake. It’s like the perfect man—if you ask different women, they’ll come up with radically different imaginations as to what the perfect man is like. My perfect man is a tall, handsome, intelligent, charming and witty man who looks like a cross between Childish Gambino and Henry Golding. He has secret tattoos, is a philanthropist, loves… Read more Continue reading take me to milk bar not red lobster
check it out though
letting go of crazy expectations, responsibilities, and all the things that make us wanna pull our hair out…..even if it’s just for a moment.
being unafraid, bold, and just making stuff happen–which requires way more courage and hustle that most think.
being sassy, loud, and completely and audaciously yourself…..no matter what others may say or think.
welcome to things we stan! i made this fun little blog (the thought of calling it that makes me want to projectile vom, actually) because i believe in being fun, fearless, and sassy. and trust me, in today’s day and age, it’s hard to do all three of those things.
in a world of 401ks, IRAs, work, stress, excessive social media consumption, hyperbole, conflict, and sunday scaries, we all need a fun little place to talk about lighthearted things and laugh.
i used to be a stressed up ball of mess (still kinda am) but i’m learning to let go, to be calm, and to laugh my ass off.
thanks for coming along for the fun!
