muji spice book
Traveling with your spice rack is not ideal. This is why Japanese company, Muji, has made a book of spices to make flavoring your food while away from home a little bit easier.
This book from Muji is full of pages that are made of spiced paper, which dissolve from the heat and moisture of cooking. Now that kick of white pepper or red chili is just a tear away. And, since it is compact and perfectly portable, the Muji spice book is ideal for when you’re traveling!

TO THOSE WHO HAS NEVER HEARD OF MUJI BEFORE:
Muji is one of my most favorite stores IN THE WORLD. In addition to there super rad spice book, they have nice clothing, awesome furniture, and best of all AFFORDABLE AND SUPER HIGH QUALITY STATIONARY. You can get a super high quality pen for less than a buck (like 80 yen, which they sell in the US for about a buck) and their sketchbooks ohmygosh don’t get me started on that!
Live in the middle of nowhere in the USA? Fear not! Muji sells a lot of their awesome stuff online, and the shipping isn’t that crazy expensive last time I checked! So go out there and get these rad things!

I would have thought defenestration 101 would come BEFORE dismemberment 101. Shows what I know!
No, depending on the height of the window, dismemberment can become untidy after defenestration. Order matters.

One of my best friends slept in earmuffs to keep her safe from the Khan slugs. You are definitely NOT alone ;)
Your friend showed eminently good sense
It seems like if you dye them black, there’s not a lot of room to screw it up? And if they’re comfy…
I would think? I mean, I guess I could try? They look like they have a felt-ish finish? Hard to tell online. My last pair were black leather.

You could probably take your shoes to a shoe repair place to be re-soled.
Usually I would, but these shoes were all of one piece, and (cough) plastic, so when the bottom went, it all went. These were very much disposable shoes, rather than my beloved macapas. Generally, though, if a shoe is salvageable, I am all over resoling/repairing, because a well-made shoe that fits right is worth it.
Excelsior Nails' Danvers is probably the most intriguing new polish I’ve tried out lately. It’s described as a “blue/black jellie base packed with red and gold holographic glitter,” and yet in the bottle, looks like a deep gorgeous green glitter polish with scattered but plentiful violet holo glitter.
The base is a nice translucent murky blue that resembles Crayola’s midnight blue crayon. After three thin coats, which is what I used to get full opacity, however, I had a beautiful deep murky pine green with yellow undertones full of holo glitter. It’s possible you could avoid this transformation by layering one thin coat over a similar blue, like OPI’s Ski Teal You Drop, Revlon’s Fashionista, or Sinful Colors’ Blue Cruisin or Rain Storm, all of which are very similar midnight blue cremes. I’m not sure how I’ll feel about the reduced glitter payoff, though.
Danvers is very showy in full and partial sun, and under bright electric lights. The level of holo is very reminiscent of the Kleancolor holos, so I’ve linked to some swatches of them by a person who clearly has a camera much better equipped for handling that level of sparkly awesome.
While I was wearing Danvers around, I was struck by how much it reminded me of another green scattered holo I love, PiCture POlish’s Kryptonite, so I thought I’d do a quick comparison, which is what’s going on in the last two indoor shots. Kryptonite is on the ring finger, while Danvers is on the rest.
They’re obviously not dupes, by any means, but they are quite similar. A few quick comments: Kryptonite goes on much smoother, no grit at all and I almost went without topcoat, but decided it was a fairer comparison to have it. It’s obviously a slightly bluer green, as opposed to Danvers’ more yellow cast. Kryptonite’s holo glitter also differs, as its particles are all of the silver variety, and vary in size from microglitter to slightly irregular but still tiny shards. None of them are as brightly overt or colorful as the glitters in Danvers, retaining their silvery metallic cast, and only occasionally throwing off muted prismatic effects.
Danvers is not a dupe, but rather a slightly more excitable sibling or very close cousin, and seeing as Kryptonite is hard to get your hands on and much more expensive at $13(CAD)/11ml plus shipping from Canada, vs $6(US)/15ml and US shipping, I think it’s a pretty good trade, particularly considering I like them equally. Danvers is definitely a bit more in your face, but we are talking about two dark green holo glitter polishes. We are splitting hairs here in terms of relative respectability.
I really love this finish and the fun of how the jelly plays with the glitter colors. I’m selfishly kind of hoping for more in this vein, and between all the Captains Marvel, or the characters associated with the Carol Corps, the possibilities seem endless.
So, I literally wore a hole in the soles of my black mary jane flats. You know, because I wear them every day.
And I figured, no big deal, black mary janes or ballet flats, some basic arch support would be good if I can get it, because I try to walk around 3+ miles a day if possible.
Who the hell decided putting ankle chains on all the basic black shoes, frequently in rose gold for god’s sake, was going to be a thing now? (when did rose gold become a thing? I am so old)
I can’t find a mary jane shoe to save my life under $150 and a ballet flat under $90 without said accoutrements with any pretension to a sole made out of anything but cardboard is a joke. I did find a black ballet flat without the chain, but it a) had a bow and b) the bow was end-capped in brass wtf. Also, it was $85.
BASIC CLASSIC SHOE IN BLACK, PLEASE.
God, I miss my footprints Macapa. Yes it was $180 for a fucking black mary sue flat. It was worth every penny. It has been discontinued for almost 4 years since Birkenstock discontinued that line of actual attractive(ish) comfortable durable shoes.
I did find two pairs on Amazon in my size, for $90 apiece. In plaid. God help me, I am considering them both.
They still don’t solve all of my problem, but god. Most. Comfortable. Shoe. In. The. World. And I wore them every day pretty much in and out for years. And then they were dead and had been discontinued.
I could buy them and try to dye them but. If I screw it up …
But plaid. Kind of limits my use of them if I wear anything other than solids.
UGH. I just want shooooooes. This is almost as bad as jeans shopping, and who knew?
I’m quite tempted by the Cap one. And torn between thinking the “sleep” aspect means it’ll be soft and comfy and that it means the grey will be that weird heathered grey on a lot of pyjamas that I don’t like
I knoooooow. I, on the other hand, am very tempted by the IM one, but not sure as to whether it is tiny like so much Junior stuff is, in which case I need to get an XL, or if it actually is relaxed because hello it says it is and also it’s a sleep shirt? in which case, a large should be fine? OR, if I were nefarious, I could get both, get the discount, and return the one that doesn’t fit at my local store, because apparently you can do that >_> Or, if I hate it, and it actually does go down to my calves because there isn’t a rule that the pics have to be accurate, I could return both for the refund. I bet the shipping isn’t refunded, though, which would only be an issue for me if both were unwearable.
