Bestest Beauty Products From Someone Who Doesn’t Consider Herself High Maintenance But Probably Is

Sometimes things live up to the hype. Like that time I met Jonathan Adler through a friend and he was super nice and funny and took my hand and told me I was “hilarious”. Whenever I doubt my self worth

Sleep Together. More Soundly.

When we go on vacation, we like to bring something back from our trip that reminds us of what an amazing time we had. Usually, it’s in the form of a 5-7 pound weight gain, but sometimes, it’s much much

S’well Indeed.

Everywhere I go, people ask me about my groovy water bottle.  If I were in a magazine, in a feature entitled “Things Julie Maigret Can’t Live Without”, one of my items would be this beauty. Yes, that list, like every

In Praise of Sweatpants. With apologies to Cindy Crawford.

I like to spend most of my time at home dressed like a new mom. AKA someone who doesn’t have time to look all that presentable (sorry, Husband). I am not a new mom, or a mom at all (that

She leaves me no choice but to make the bed around her. She might be the 2nd most obstinate Maigret in our household. Let’s see if Suspect #1 catches this slight. 😬
Experienced the delight of seeing her emerge from her cocoon - see attached video. Maybe I wasn’t supposed to interfere (sorry, Nature), but when I saw her on her back with nothing to help upright her (which was technically my fault since I had unwittingly removed said cocoon from our pool float, where it was attached in an upright position. Sorry again, Nature) I offered a little twig, which she grabbed on to. I kept checking on her (stalking) as she hung out on the twig for a very long time. Then I checked & she had flown away (without so much as a Thank You, btw), leaving me a bit empty. #butterfly #cocoon #butterflyemerging #naturephotography #emptynest #emptynesters

Is food porn still a thing? Because this is beautiful & you should see it.
From @tunameltsmyheart: Today is #RememberMeThursday, which honors the millions of orphan pets who’ve lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home. So today let’s corporately show everyone we know how beautiful pet adoption is and inspire change for pets in need. Join Tuna by posting your adopted pets on social media with a message to educate and empower others to adopt today!
