Did you miss episode 4?

We discuss our June Book Club pick, The Idea of You by Robinne Lee!

Adult Friendships

EPISODE FIVE: Adult Friendships

Weekly Love

Christine: Schitt’s Creek (Pregnancy Test Episode) 

Ew, David Doormat 

Lindsay: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (in Truffle)

Weekly Hate 

Christine: The weather we’ve been having (Hot, Cold, Rainy, etc)

Lindsay: The Nordstrom Sale posts starting early (as of June 17) and telling people to open the Nordstrom card (bad advice to suggest people get in debt to shop a sale early)

Christine and Lindsay both shop the sale and use the credit card, but feel talking about it a month early is overkill. 

The Nordstrom sale begins July 12th. Will you be shopping it?
