Hi. I'm Jacki

I write a lifestyle blog for Gen X women who are ready to say YES to (mid)life & become what they might have been.

Friday Finds #10

Friday Finds #10

Happy Friday once again.

I started off my week with two friend-dates and it really set the tone for the week. It's amazing what a little time with people who get you can do to your outlook.

Earlier in the week, I wrote about prioritizing my sleep for the next couple months. This week has not supported that priority. I've had to go to bed about an hour later than normal most nights and I find that that loss as deeply effected how much deep sleep I get each night. I'm in a sad state of affairs and very much looking forward to the weekend. And crossing my fingers that next week will look different.

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to my son's show choir competetion this weekend, as well as coffee with a friend. And with any luck, lots of sleep and reading. 

In 2018, I'd like to begin phasing out fast fashion and phasing in responsibly made clothing. Here's a list of 35 fair trade and ethical clothing brands to consider. 

Tongue-in-cheek look at toxic femininity in the workplace.

For the woman who would really rather stay in.

The difference between hygge and lazy.

What to read based on your current Netflix binge.

The numbers don't lie, Norwegians would be silly to move to America.

A 12 month self-care challenge. A different theme each month.

Death, Sex, and Money will be talking about Money and Class in America starting next week.

The idea of affirmative consent isn't new.

Only 1 in 3 women feel confident in their financial knowledge (I'm not one of them). STNCE is trying to change that.

Literary organizations that do good work.

An argument for why you shouldn't call it your "emergency" fund and why you need a "comfy couch" fund.
