Bill Murray Shares His Champagne-Drinking Secrets -
And the way I like to drink it in a big pint glass with ice. I fill it with ice and I pour the champagne in it, because champagne can never be too cold. And the problem people have with champagne is they drink it and they crash with it, because the sugar content is so high and you get really dehydrated. But if you can get the ice in it, you can drink it supremely cold and at the same time you’re getting the melting ice, so it’s like a hydration level, and you can stay at this great level for a whole weekend. You don’t want to crash. You want to keep that buzz, that bling, that smile.
Thanks, Bill Murray.
Hello Bill Murray knows what’s up.
one difference between cats and dogs is that dogs do absolutely nothing to mask their clinginess while cats pretend it’s a coincidence they’re in the same room as you 97% of the time
Hello NSFW (for @wkavanaugh) #sockgames #twinkletoes #pussinboots
I can honestly say this eyeliner is perfect. I get compliments on my cat eye almost daily and will never use anything else until the day I die or it is discontinued.
I discovered it a few years ago - a recommendation from famous blogger Bluebird Vintage. It does take a little practice to apply but it’s worth the effort.
Hello retail therapy,
It’s been a long, stressful week so I decided a trip to Sephora was in order.
Y’all know how this ends…
I went straight to the perfume section and dove into the inexpensive rollerball options of all their popular perfumes.
Scents I wear on a regular basis are Chanel Mademoiselle, Lolita Lempicka, or L’Occitane Pivoine Flora.
I tend to like spicy, warm, unusual fragrances with rose or sandalwood (I’m pretending like I know what I’m talking about. I don’t.) I surfaced with this one and ElizabethandJames Nirvana and am quite pleased with myself.
I also stocked up on my can’t-live-without mascara and eyeliner staples and sighed longingly at an eyeshadow palette I will not buy.
Then I went home and bought a new litter box, cat litter, and a cat carrier on Amazon because Hall & Oates needed a little retail therapy too.

Redlining for the 21st Century
Using personal information gathered about you on the Internet to provide you with better choice is very different from using the same information to control your behavior. The former is a service to the consumer. The latter is exploitation. I call the use of big data to exploit consumers “personal redlining.”
The term “redlining,” which first emerged in the 1950s, referred to the practice of denying service or charging more for products to particular groups based on race, sex, or where they lived. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 made redlining based on race, religion, sex, and the like illegal in mortgage lending.
Personal redlining is not about using big data in clever ways to influence choice as has been discussed in a recent Atlantic article by Rebecca J. Rosen. It is about using big data to dictate choice. When companies engage in personal redlining they use big data to learn everything possible about you as an individual and then decide what information, products, and services you should have—and at what price. It is about limiting options and pressuring customers to select one of those options.
