Hi.

I'm Nadine. Thanks for stopping by. The floors are creaky, the kids are loud, but the door's always open and the coffee's always on.

Make yourself at home.

Weekend Reading Vol. 22: Pockets, Chores and Forever Plaid (Like Cher)

Weekend Reading Vol. 22: Pockets, Chores and Forever Plaid (Like Cher)

 Pockets for life.

Pockets for life.

Slowly making my way through the Internet. (Almost done!)

Pockets (The Pudding)

This article is fascinating and infuriating and I WANT BIGGER POCKETS NOW, thanks.

"What do we want? Functional pockets. When do we want it? NOW, but really like several centuries ago."

37 Ethical & Sustainable Shoe Companies. (Closet Case Patterns)

This list is mostly here for my own personal reference. In the future. When I have a shoe budget.

Goats Like It When You Smile at Them, Extremely Heartwarming Study Says. (The Cut)

And now you know.

Maybe Your Sleep Problem Isn’t a Problem. (The New York Times)

Ursula calls the live-action Beauty and the Beast the “scary Beauty and the Beast.” The real reason we don’t let her watch it: it’s not very good. Emma Watson, you're pretty...bad at singing.

Cate Blanchett Looks Cool as Hell at the UN. (Go Fug Yourself)

She’s 49. And yes, she looks cool as hell. And I need her haircut. One day I’ll wear a blazer and not a tee with a stretched-out neckline. (Assuming Cate wears crappy clothes at home, right? She’s got four kids.) 

Happy Children Do Chores. (The New York Times)

Ursula, go clean the bathroom.

"The good news is that children whose families have established an expectation that they will contribute to the workings of the household do just that. There are 7-year-olds in the suburbs who do the laundry, just as there are 5-year-olds in the Amazon who help harvest papayas."

Dressing Like Cher Horowitz Is Cool Again. (The Cut)

When was it not?
