We could all use a refresher on the economics and political principles that underlay the latest scandal-of-the-week. And if you, like me, post about fashion on Instagram, I hope you can join me in taking a renewed look at our content and remembering that the ability to wear a wide variety of things just for fun is an incredible privilege.
Even though It's been over seven years since I planned my own wedding, I still love reading and talking about weddings - especially when there's as much juicy insider detail as there is in this article! But as with so many things, I finished it remembering the sociological research which tells us that, past a certain point, money doesn't actually buy any additional happiness.
I completely cut out sugar and processed grains for a solid three months about five years ago, and continue to minimize both of those things as much as my inherent tendency to being a sugar monster allows. I've never really thought of this strategy as a health panacea though - it's really a weight maintenance tool for me. I generally avoid extremes, and this article reassures me that that's a wise strategy.
This article also brings up an excellent point to me: why does "gender-neutral" skew so masculine? My sister and her wife dress my niece in all kinds of things, from frilly dresses to onesies that are clearly from the boys' department, and that just seems like a progressive strategy. But I wonder if they or anyone else would put boys in pink and glitter sometimes in the name of gender neutrality. I wish they would!
