For this month’s Stuff We Like, we’re sharing small (and some medium) things that give us a big boost! For me, it’s new cross stitch patterns or, now that I’m teaching myself to sew, new projects and scheduling time to do them. Buying the supplies to make a thing and then making the thing is boosting my mood like whoa. This is my current work-in-progress: Also a new lipstick, which is weird because I don’t … Continue reading Stuff We Like: Little Gifts for Ourselves!
We love a whole bunch of video games and recently started talking about all our favorites. So of course we had to share that discussion with you. We’re talking console games, Switch games, phone games, apps, and so on. Consider this post akin to, “Relaxing Video Game Recs from Romance Reading Folks.” (NB: Some but not all of the links within the post are affiliate coded, so if you use them, thanks! And if not, … Continue reading Stuff We Like: Video Games!

Oh, y’all. Get ready. I asked the SBTB HQ team about what beauty products they’d most recommend after sharing an item I love and swear by, and it was incredible.

I hope you’ve enjoyed shopping with us, and found some fun, useful, and enjoyable items for your wish lists, and to send to those you like the mostest!

For this week’s 2019 SBTB Gift Guide, I’m collecting different tech tools and items I use almost every day, and some that make my life (or other people’s) a little easier. I’ve featured some of these before, and they’re among my most favorite things to give to other people, especially for grab bag or random gifting where I don’t know the recipient very well. Let’s get started! NB: Some of the links are affiliate coded, … Continue reading Gift Guide 2019: Tech, Both Fun and Useful
Earlier this year, I talked about a few items from my Etsy wishlist. Some things were crafty, some were pretty, and one was especially weird. Well, I’m back with that same energy! Is there a theme here? Definitely not. Just things I’ve stumbled across on Etsy that I would very much love to have if space and money were limitless. NB: Some of the links are affiliate coded, so if you use them, we may … Continue reading 2019 Gift Guide: More Etsy Wishlist Weirdness
It’s Gift Guide time! I should probably file these under “Hide Your Wallet” because they’re dangerous temptations to me as I compile them. We’ve all been doing a little shopping, and we’ve got a new collection of beautiful, clever, and pretty ideas for you! NB: Some of the links are affiliate coded, so if you use them, we may earn a commission – and if you don’t use them, that’s totally cool, too. Shana: I … Continue reading Gift Guide 2019: All the Pretty Things!
The review team here at the SBTB Pink Palace is ready to help you find the perfect holiday game for gifting, getting, or ganging up on relatives. Ready, set, play! Claudia: I have two absolutely awesome favorites – even for me, and I’m not much of a game person in general. Carcassonne is a great one for all ages, and can be played as simply or be as complicated as you’d want. If the gift … Continue reading Gift Guide 2019: Game On!
It’s time, it’s time! Yes, Halloween isn’t until tomorrow, but I typically post the Gift Guides on Wednesdays, so we’re starting a day early this year. Hooray! In each Smart Bitches Gift Guide, I post links to different items that we love, or find useful, or give as gifts, or, really, just think you might like either as an item for your wish list or for your holiday shopping. Some of the links are affiliate … Continue reading Gift Guide 2019: Happy Shopping, Everybody!
I read CrossStitcher magazine every month via my local library’s digital subscription through RBDigital (and if you’d like to learn how to do that, I wrote a whole article about it – enjoy!) and this last month there was a really, really tempting sampler for Halloween on the cover: I wish I could link to the pattern itself, but it’s inside the magazine. And it’s adorable! It tempted me to go looking for other fall patterns … Continue reading Stuff We Like: Seasonal Cross Stitching, Anyone?
It’s time for another Stuff We Like, where we share, well, stuff that we like and find useful that might help you out, too! In this edition, I’m perusing items that help us upgrade our habits. One example: I am personally trying to create less trash. Can I reuse something, or wash it, or not buy an item knowing that after it’s used I’ll throw it away? Can I create less waste? Probably, in most … Continue reading Stuff We Like: Upgrading Our Habits
