July 03, 2019

Weekly Love




Christine: Schitt’s Creek (Pregnancy Test Episode)




Ew, David Doormat




Lindsay: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (in Truffle)




Weekly Hate




Christine: The weather we’ve been having (Hot, Cold, Rainy, etc)




Lindsay: The Nordstrom Sale posts starting early (as of June 17) and telling people to open the Nordstrom card (bad advice to suggest people get in debt to shop a sale early)




Christine and Lindsay both shop the sale and use the credit card, but feel talking about it a month early is overkill.




The Nordstrom sale begins on July 12th. Will you be shopping it?

The episode opens with a background on Christine’s and Lindsay’s friendships as 30-something, childless women. We discuss:
