My Latest Score: The iPhone Case.
This is actually a score from a few weeks ago, but I got so many direct messages in response to the Instastory above that I thought I’d share details below. The case is from Etsy (under $20!) and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. I then added these letters, which are on SUPER sale.

#Turbothot: The Handmaid’s Tale.
Have you read or watched The Handmaid’s Tale? Mr. Magpie and I tuned into the first episode last weekend and were so distraught that we switched it off, turned to each other, and solemnly agreed not to resume watching it ever again. The premise of the series is so dark and disgusting that it was hard to watch. I felt like I was carrying around a weight in the pit of my stomach for the next two days.
I respect art that goes there. And I’ve read my fair share of gut-wrenching books (I was wrecked after The God of Small Things and The Year of Magical Thinking in particular). And I’m further aware that the cognitive dissonance we were experiencing is probably, in certain ways, healthy: we were thinking, reacting deeply, processing. But sometimes I feel that life is too short for such worrisome imagery; there is enough unhappiness and pain in the real world.
What were your thoughts?
#Shopaholic: The Scalloped Swimsuit.
+This scalloped swimsuit looks an awful lot like something from Marysia…but at a fraction of the price.
+GUYS. Have you had chicken salt before? Mr. Magpie and I went to see the Magician Upstairs at The Nomad Hotel (SO COOL) and they served popcorn seasoned with chicken salt and it was OUTRAGEOUS. This is now in my cart for movie night…
+These are so pretty for spring.
+I like the heathered look of these leggings.
+A cool storage solution for toys/magazines/recycling/what have you.
+I’m DYING to try this primer. I’ve read great reviews!

+So many cute party accessories here.
