This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria’s Secret products to test and review as part of a contest.
So, a while ago I got an awesome sports bra and workout pants in the mail. Those of you who know me know that I wear workout pants approximately 75% of the time, so I was super pumped about those. I wasn’t sure what I would think of the bra, because I don’t normally shop at Victoria’s Secret, and I don’t think sports bras are anything special. However, I tried on the bra and was impressed by the fit, so I went into the store with the coupons I received in the package, and tried on a couple others. The one I got for free needs to be pulled over your head, and then hooked in the back. The fit and support is nice, but I like the ones I ended up buying a lot better - they zip up the front, no pulling over the head necessary.
My old sports bras weren’t the right size for me anymore, since I’ve put on some weight, but I didn’t realize how bad it was until trying these new ones. I’ll keep them around, but I haven’t worn anything other than the Victoria’s Secret ones since I got them. It’s only been a couple weeks and I’ve had to wash them all multiple times - I try to go on the treadmill every day, so they get pretty sweaty, but they wash easily and are still soft and in good condition.
I also bought another pair of workout pants. The ones I got in the mail were crops, and I got some that go down to the ankle. They’re both great.
If you get the chance to try these products, I would highly recommend it!
whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal
Eh, I don’t like when people be like “black girls watch out cause white girls getting booty these days” cause to a black girl’s ears it kinda sounds like “watch out because your only value is your fetishized body and once that’s gone you’ll truly be worthless”
Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level.
This is basic economic fact.
A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity.
And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…
And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.
Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs).
But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.
We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living
"A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses."
"Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for the workers."

Yes, that’s completely true.
