My outfit breakdown:
- Top: t-shirt by Teepublic
- Bottom: striped pencil skirt by Bebe
- Bottom: opaque stockings from Amazon HERE
- Shoes: moto boots by American Rag (from Macy's)
See you tomorrow!
I own a lot of black and white stripes, as it's a very neutral pattern that you can pair basically anything with. Here's what I'm wearing!
The pop of turquoise color is my favorite part of this outfit, and it's a very cheap trend to jump on! I ordered a bunch of opaque colorful stockings from Amazon, from different brands/sellers, and the ones that I felt were TRULY opaque and had the boldest colors were from HERE for only $8.49 and free shipping, and I'm wearing them in the photo above so you can see that they definitely pack a punch. There are some cheaper options on Amazon, but they're more transparent, so if you don't want super opaque, you do have a lot of choices. The ones I bought are also thick enough to be warm, which is important as I head into Seattle Darkness (the sun is basically done with us now).
My outfit breakdown:
See you tomorrow!
Happy Friday everyone! Quick video (about six and a half minutes) to just show what I got in my latest Material World designer style box (check out the service HERE if buying premium brand clothing for cheap is your thing). As you can see, I'm wearing the outfit from Wednesday in it (that's when the video was recorded), so you can REALLY see how fluorescent that sweater is! LOVE IT.
For my newer readers, here are the links to my previous boxes if you want to check them out (they'll open in a new tab/window:
Now on to Material World Box #9!
I didn't have time to try these things due to my kids' being off school and parent-teacher-conferences (kiiiiilllllll meeeeee). Parent-teacher conferences are the epitome of the "meetings that could have been an email"... but here are some close up photos of the items and the price list.
Who else was excited about the DYT store bringing jewelry back? Definitely me! What I was NOT excited about was that the prices seem a lot higher than what they charged before they took a hiatus. I don't know if it's because they switched distributors, or were not charging enough to for the business to be sustainable the first time around. Either way, I was a bit miffed. These are inexpensive fashion jewelry pieces, and I want them at inexpensive fashion jewelry prices.
I'm definitely fine with paying for quality metals (gold, sterling, gemstones etc). But if it's not made of something actually valuable, I want dirt cheap prices!
I saw a pair of (now sold out) resin earrings that were multicolor craziness, and LOVED THEM... until I saw the price tag of $18.99. Okay, granted, that's not a terrible price for earrings in general, but it is for RESIN. Resin is a very cheap material and you can find resin earrings EVERYWHERE as they are on trend right now, and you have thousands of choices for well under $10, so how does DYT get off on pricing them that high?! Clearly SOMEONE is buying them, because they sold out, but that someone is NOT me.
HERE are the nearly identical multicolor resin earrings I found on Amazon with free shipping, for a mere $6.98. (Click on the image or link to go directly the listing, and also, if these aren't your style, they have a TON of options!)
Obviously I swooped these up and LOVE them. They are very lightweight, as I can't tolerate heavy earrings, but still manage to be large enough for visual impact. These are definitely a statement earring, but you won't have that sagging ear lobe problem with any resin earrings, which is great news especially for mature women.
See you tomorrow!
I've been an Ipster for years, in spite of their issues, and decided to forgo my regular Ipsy Glam Bag ($12) and Glam Bag Plus ($25), and opt in for the much more expensive, first ever, Glam Bag Ultimate ($50).
The regular Glam Bag ($12) contains 5 deluxe samples and the occasional full-size product, and the Glam Bag Plus ($25) contains 5 full-sized products. The newly released Glam Bag Utimate ($50, ouch) contains 8 full-size and 4 deluxe samples. You can just get TWO Glam Bag Pluses for $50 and just get 10 full-size products. Or, if you do like getting some deluxe samples, get one Glam Bag plus and the regular Glam Bag for a total of $37. The Glam Bag Ultimate did not feel like an upgrade, especially considering it is TWICE The price.
Here is what I am receiving, but note: I bought 5 add-ons, and cashed in my stockpile of points for that Violet Voss palette.
First off, let's talk about the fact that I am getting duplicate items that I literally already received LAST MONTH! The Ibom clay mask, and I already have one of the F.A.R.A.H. brushes (I'll post photos of last month's haul).
How embarrassing, I thought I had already posted this...
Soooo... obviously this video was recorded prior to my haircut, and seeing my overgrown hair makes me realize that the haircut was definitely the right choice (though I do think it's a bit too short right now, it'll be JUST PERFECT in about a month because my hair grows like radioactive weeds).
It's my September Material World style box! Quick recap of the service for people who aren't familiar with it... it's like Stitch Fix, but the brands are all luxury and premium, but the prices are pretty affordable in spite of the designer labels because they're all consigned. (If you want to check out my previous boxes from Material World, here's #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, and #7. Those will open in a new window, FYI).
Here's the price list, because I don't like to say something is "affordable" or "expensive" because that's very personally subjective, so seeing the actual prices, you can determine for yourself if those prices work for you. You'll notice that some of the items are not that much different from Stitch Fix prices (I've had 26 boxes from them, and granted, you always pay more for new items than consigned).
And now here are the photos of what these items actually look like ON me. God I have ugly feet. I mean, in my defense, I don't even TRY because I run marathons so my feet are just going to look like trash. (This is why I generally avoid open-toed shoes. No one should have to be subjected to my toe nail jank).
I can't believe I found these, new in box, unworn, on Poshmark, in my size! This particular pair of Rothy's shoes was a limited release from before I had really heard of this brand. The Slate Metallics are a black shoe that fades into a sparkly silver metallic toe, similar in style to my Midnight Metallics, just different coloring.
I was actually in the market for just plain basic black Rothy's, but you know what? Those will be available for sale for-freaking-ever, so I jumped on these.
Granted, I definitely PAID for them. Whew. People definitely know what their discontinued limited edition Rothy's are worth. This thrifty item feels like when I get a good deal on a pair of Loubs. Still expensive, no matter what!
These totally work as a replacement for basic black, right? Right? Trying to convince myself here!
Have you guys seen the new Chelsea ankle boots that Rothy's just released? Check them out HERE (and take $20 off if you're a newbie)! I'm trying to convince myself I do NOT need more boots! I've managed to be good and avoid buying any of the summer releases (they made it easy by not being colors I liked), but dang it, they are really trying to make me go for broke this fall!
Happy shopping everyone! Thrifting makes the world go round! See you tomorrow!
We made it to Friday!
Not that it matters if you're a parent. Everyday feels like a hangover but without the fun part from the night before.
Today I'm sharing the contents of my jewelry subscription box from Rocksbox! It's $21 to rent 3 pieces of jewelry for the whole month, with the option of keeping any of them that you want, with your $21 fee being credited toward the cost of your jewelry. If you want to keep it all, you get a $10 discount. I'll post the price list below the video so you can judge for yourself if you think Rocksbox is fun for those who only want to wear pieces a few times before cycling out for something new, or if it's overpriced and not worth it. Check out my jewelry! And then read more to figure out how to score some $31 of free jewelry!
Here's the price per item. Note that there were plenty of less expensive items available as well, but I chose the things I actually liked to be sent to me, instead of just choosing by price. You can expect most items to be between $30-60.
Some quick tips to hack this box into something more affordable and score some FREE jewelry, up to $31, which can definitely get you one of the less expensive items, or knock the price down of something to super cheap!
First, use someone's referral code for to get the first month free (and you can cancel after one month, FYI). Here's my code HERE, but everyone's gets you same perk. You do have to put in a valid card number, and they do a quick charge and then reverse it, just to make sure it's a working and legit card. Even though you didn't pay the $21 fee for that first month, you STILL get the $21 credit toward any jewelry item you want to keep.
Then you get another $5 by adding a ton of items to you "wishlist". I forget the exact amount, like 20 or something?
Then, for another $5, add your birthday, but put in a birthday that is for the same month you sign up, and you can then combine with the the other credit, for a total of $31 in credit.
Make sure you remember to cancel if you have no intention of receiving a box monthly! (Click HERE for a blog post I wrote on all the ways you can make sure you don't get screwed by membership autorenewals and weaseling out of hidden charges).
Have a great weekend everyone and I'll see you on Monday!
I'm back everyone! My wonderfully beat up suitcase has now been to both hemispheres, and it definitely shows.
My son has been wanting to go to New Zealand for years now, and that's something he finally cross off his own bucket list (I wonder where he got that wanderlust from, hmmmmm.... must be from his dad).
FYI, New Zealand is NOT a country where you get claim your GST back, and that tax is hiiiiiiigh. Not a lot of shopping was done because of that, and I wonder why they don't encourage more frivolous tourist spending, like in Europe where I got aaaaalllllll my taxes back. I had so many items I had to SHIP them to my house in spite of bringing a half-empty suitcase for souvenirs. You know what I do when I know I get my taxes back at the airport? I do things like buy Hermes, Louboutins, and fur coats. Yes, I literally bought fur (in my defense, the Euro was weak and my US dollar was strong and that felt like all of Europe just went on clearance sale). Obviously, for me, it's the principle of the thing. Not every tourist is a total lush like me though, and I'm certain that the 15% non-refundable GST is doing New Zealand's tourist economy zero favors.
Anyway, time for all the videos I couldn't successfully upload until now!
We'll start with August's Material World box! For those who are new here, it's like Stitch Fix, except exclusively designer and premium brands, but it doesn't cost more than Stitch Fix because all of the items are consigned! Affordable designer clothes, often still new with tags, at a big discount. I also love Stitch Fix for more casual/everyday items, but Material World is my favorite (see aforementioned confession of being a total lush). Grab your own box HERE to see what they're all about, or if you are interested in selling your clothing to them (you don't have to subscribe to their service to consign).
Here's what I got:
Here's my price list (I decided to keep the skirt and those shoes, and the shoes are far more saturated and cobalt in real life):
We have a holiday for EVERYTHING in the US, and apparently it's National Cat Day. I only know this because Cost Plus World Market texted me a coupon for a FREE Cat Mug to celebrate it (okay, really, it's to get people in the store, because I definitely bought wine and Asian snackies while I was in there. Well played, World Market. My "free" mug cost me $46 in crap I didn't need!)
By the way, you should join their rewards program and sign up for text alerts. They always send a text for a coupon for some occasional freebie, like an 8 oz bag of coffee, a reusable tote bag, snacks, seasonings... Who doesn't love a random, sometimes pointless freebie?
I will say that this Cat mug is really cute with its ears and all, but it stabs you in the face when you drink it... which really, just makes it even more cat-like if you ask me.
Happy Cat Day!
I decided to cancel Sephora Play, and I'm still in the process of figuring out the best subscription service for cosmetics for myself, and Boxycharm comes up a lot, so I went and subscribed last week and my July Box just arrived (as a late subscriber, my box obviously wasn't being shipped out right away, but I should be receiving my August box at their normal time). Unlike Ipsy Glam Bag and Birchbox, these are 4-5 FULL-SIZE products, never samples. It does cost a little more, at $21 per month, but considering that as long as you like ONE item in your box, you come out ahead financially, it's not that bad.
What really got me to bite the bullet and subscribe was the free FULL SIZE GlamGlow mask I received as a new member!
***Edited to fix video which wasn't properly embedded! Thanks for letting me know guys! You are FAST!***
You guys, YOU GUYS, OMFG YOU GUYS.
Here is my 6th box from Material World, my all-time favorite fashion subscription box. It's like Stitch Fix, but better, because all the items are designer, and they're also all really inexpensive because they're consigned (but only in excellent condition or new with tags, which I can't say for most consigned items).
First, here's what I received in my box:
I am SO GLAD I decided to NOT try these items on in the video, because it would have been mortifying, and also inappropriate for children. Let's take a look at those awesome black leather pants, shall we?
Who wore it better: me and my lower thighs, or my 11-year-old daughter?
That's not even where my ridiculous fit-issues end.
I luuuuurve GlamGlow but I do not lurve their price tag. Their Bubblesheet oxygneated sheetmask is one of my favorite sheetmasks of all time (review video HERE), but at $9 each... ouch. My bank account is feeling battered and bruised.
Of course, like basically ALL skincare items, there is an equal or better K-Beauty counterpart, and I decided to see how the Korean brand Purederm's Bubble Mask compared to GlamGlow.
The first obvious difference is the PRICE.
GlamGlow Bubblesheet is $9 for ONE.
Purederm Bubble Mask is $6.99 for a package of TEN, and free shipping on Amazon HERE.
....and that's where the differences stop.
Seriously. If I didn't see the outside packaging, I would not know I wasn't using GlamGlow's Bubblesheet mask. These are virtually identical products, and I am done shelling out for GlamGlow. The oxygenation and foaming effect, the results to my skin afterwards... this product DELIVERS! And for only $0.70 per mask!
I am soooooo happy that Amazon carries so many Korean skincare products now and I don't have to go trek 90 minutes out to the Korean part of Tacoma (where I used to live), just to get the good stuff.
There was no way I was keeping this to myself, grab yours HERE, and you're welcome.
Hey everyone! With the really muggy, overcast, rainy (possibly floody) weather we are having out here in the Seattle area, I decided this is a good time to share this simple hack to help your shoes be a little more water-resistant! We all still want to wear out cute spring and summer shoes, but if you're out here in Western Washington, that means everything is wet, including your feet.
This trick is so simple to do (seriously, you can't mess it up), and only takes a few minutes. And you can't tell that the shoes have been treated! (Note: DO NOT DO THIS WITH LEATHER, there are different products for that, and I'll share that video on Monday).
This is an excellent option for all of your kids' canvas shoes (like slip-on sneakers, Keds, etc). You can also apply this to your canvas tote bags and backpacks!
See you tomorrow!
I do the occasional Thrifty Thursday post, but since tomorrow is 4th of July and I'm probably day-drinking, I'm going to share this adorable little bargain with you TODAY instead, on this NonWasteful Wednesday (hmmm, doesn't quite roll off the tongue the same way).
If you wear loose powder of any kind, and LOVE the glamour of vintage eras gone by, you really should nab one of these before they're sold out.
Look at those little pedestal legs! AND IT COMES WITH A LITTLE POOF!
Think of how cute that's going to look on a vanity or counter. Go grab one HERE and match with me!
My latest box from Material World has arrived! The video went up a little later today because I was out of the house (aka away from wifi) so I couldn't even start uploading until the afternoon. This video runs a little longer because I try on every single item, and I do have an update regarding the missing Isabel Marant pants that I was very disappointed to have not received in my box to try on (they were high-waisted pants with buttons in a sailor-esque nautical style that I definitely would have bought so long as they fit me well enough). Here's my box:
I did get a hold of customer service. It was not an ideal customer service experience as I believe the company outsources it to a third party call center/ chat desk, but I was NOT charged $150 for the missing pants. I did have to take several photos with the Material World tags visible on my items to prove I didn't get the pants, and it was all rather annoying because I had to do my online checkout without them adjusting my cart/invoice on their end, and just have blind faith it would be taken care of... but it was. No extra charges, and any inventory or tagging issues on their end is on them, not me. Phew. That could have been a very expensive error they could have tried to make me liable for!
Anyway, here's my price list (though it's not accurate due to the whole missing pants issue, and as you can see, those pants were the bulk of the cost):
I frequent various parts of California more than I want to admit, and although San Francisco is the bulk of it, Los Angeles is a close second (and I have another LA trip coming up soon). SoCal has a very different vibe from my soggy corner of the country (I live in the Seattle area), and this pencil skirt I picked up in Korea Town is my absolute favorite, and just feeeeeels like LA to me.
Also, even if you're not Korean or speak zero Korean, you need to hit up K-Town, if for nothing but the food alone. Then, if you've got money burning a hole in your pocket, hit up some hole-in-the-wall boutiques (which is where I bought my skirt). I definitely paid a pretty penny for that skirt (I can hear my mom muttering under her breath that I was stupid for not haggling), but I love it so much and wear it so often that I definitely am getting my money's worth.
But if you're on a budget, the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in downtown LA has a pretty sweet thrift shop that helps support the school and the students. There was nothing gross, smelly, or out of style there, probably because fashion students aren't going to let that kind of garbage slide in. They even have some designer items there too. It's definitely worth checking out, and I hit it up every time I'm in LA.
Here's my outfit breakdown:
Surprise! A bonus video on this dreary, rainy Seattle Tuesday!
My FabFitFun box arrived, and I'm here to share its contents with you! I apologize ahead of time for even bringing diarrhea into the conversation. On an unrelated note, did you know I do all my videos in one take and refuse to edit them? Sometimes an F-bomb slips past. I'm just gangster like that.
This is my all-time favorite lifestyle/beauty box subscription. I unfortunately already sent out my max limit of Free Starter Boxes (which are like mini-FabFitFun teaser boxes, with 4-5 products), but I will give my blog readers first dibs for the Fall Box when those are available for me to send out. They are free, but you have to cover the shipping and handling, and they are popular and go faaaaaast. I had random Facebook friends begging for mine. I didn't realize people wanted them so badly, or I would have been more vigorous about sending them out this entire time! I've been letting mine go to waste!
Anyway, use a referral code if you know you want a full-size box, so you can knock $10 off the price. If you don't have a friend's, use mine HERE.
For discounts on all sorts of brands and products, I keep my codes on the side-bar underneath my little author blurb and social media shortcuts. Just scroll down.
See you tomorrow!
My second Ipsy Glam Bag Plus box has arrived! And this time, I actually received all of my items! This month featured a lot of items from the Tetris x Ipsy collection. Yes, Tetris as in the puzzle game, which made my geeky 80s heart happy, but then I realize it was really quite a stretch to try to link an 8-bit puzzle game from my childhood, to beauty products. Something about celebrating our different shapes and colors and unique beauty, blah blah blah. Quite a leap there, but I'm not complaining. I love puzzle games almost as much as I love RPGs. Let's combine TWO of my unrelated hobbies for no reason, woo-hoo!
If you're wondering what the major difference is between the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus and the Ipsy Glam Bag normal, they both come with 5 products (with the optoin to add additional items for a fee), but the Plus costs $25 instead of $10, and the Plus contains ONLY FULL-SIZE items, where as the normal bag contains mostly deluxe sample size products, with the occasional full-size product.
Here is everything in my box and the items I decided to purchase as "add-ons". The Sunday Riley moisturizer by itself already made the box more than worth the $25.
For price point references, the full-size product add-ons (the additional Tetris x Ipsy eyeshadow palette and the Smashbox palette) are $12 each. Those Smashbox palettes are $29 at Sephora, so that's more than 50% off. The deluxe sample size products, like the Tetris x Ipsy mini lip balm, are only $3. So I am ALL ABOUT the add-ons. (You can only add 3 items max though).
I haven't quite made up my mind yet about the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus, as I like to give a subscription service 3 shipments to impress me, but so far, it seems like a pretty good deal! What do you think?
Do you have items in your closet that have great structure, style lines, and design... but are just the wrong color? Well, you have options! Today I'm showing you how easy it is to alter a leather accessory, like shoes, a purse, a belt... and the product I use also works for faux leather. (I'll link to my favorite brand of leather paint below the video).
In this video, I am painting a leather belt that I purchased for cheap from Thred Up.
The leather paint I use is Angelus, and I buy it off Amazon HERE (lots of color choices, including fluorescents).
I actually finished this project a couple of weeks ago, and the paint has held up well, as well as on all my other leather painting projects. I haven't had issues with color-transfer, but some people have said they have, which is why I mentioned it in the video. I think that properly and thoroughly stripping the leather so the paint adheres well is key in preventing that.
As always, I take weekends off from blogging, so I'll you all on Monday!
Is it just me, or does it seem like EVERYTHING EVER is a subscription service these days? From underwear to skincare to makeup to athletic apparel...
Even if the products themselves are amazing, the whole "auto-charge" subscription service is a BIG TURN OFF to a lot of people. First, you have to remember to cancel, or "skip" a month within a certain time frame, or you're hit with charges, or a surprise shipment of some product at your door that you didn't even want or need.
I already shared what my shopping experience was like with Swap.com (you can check out that video HERE), and wanted to share my finds from ThredUp as well! Their price points are similar for name-brand items, but Swap is cheaper if you don't care about the labels and just want a bargain, though their clothing is in CRAP condition to make up for it. Anyway, here's my haul:
Overall, compared to Swap, ThredUp seems to have better quality control when it comes to making sure their items are in good condition without fading, pilling, holes, missing buttons, etc. But it's a little more expensive, unless you're looking at popular name brands, in which case their price points are comparable.
As far as selling to ThredUp, it's fine if you just want your clothes out of your house, period, at any price... but you have to be okay with getting payouts $0.10 at a time for anything that isn't designer. (I just donate instead and take the tax write-off). Anything I have that is designer or name-brand, I tend to sell on Poshmark, or sell it to Material World (who is surprisingly generous with their payments for my clothing, and I love getting their style boxes! You can check out Box 1, Box 2, Box 3, and Box 4.)
But those are the fun pieces I have added to my wardrobe to replace things I no longer wear or have worn out. Unfortunately, when you have a capsule wardrobe, your clothes take way more of a beating since you're wearing the same pieces more often.
Obviously I recorded this prior to vacation, and I know it's not Friday, but let's just call this a Thrifty Thursday Video, since it's literally about thrifting.
See you tomorrow! I'm back on schedule!
It's Friday, and that means I've got a new video up! I just received my fourth Material World style box! It's kind of like Stitch Fix, but with designer and premium brands, AND they're consigned items so they're surprisingly affordable! Check out what I received! (And if you want your own, check it out HERE)
To see what I received in past Material World boxes, here's Box #1, Box #2, and Box #3.
And now for the fun part: trying it all on! The actual fit of a garment will make or break it for me, especially as a short woman. I'm okay with being short, but I don't necessarily want to look shorter than I am!
...but I like THESE scarves. Okay, they're not my usual Hermes options (I am trying to NOT be a total consumer whore this year), but they're amazing, SUPER CHEAP ($25-38 for scarves, and click HERE to get $10 off your first purchase!), and also very environmentally friendly as they're made from recycled plastic bottles. I mentioned these in a recent blog post about the brand Nuno (you can read about it HERE), and they finally arrived!
Some of my clothing alterations are definitely more dramatic than others (i.e. those Manolo Blahniks I painted neon freakin' yellow, for example; blog post HERE)... and some are just small tweaks to make something I barely wear get bumped back into my closet rotation!
This basic shirt for example. It's a striped top from the Limited that I've had for a decade, and I never throw it out because I find ways of talking myself back into loving it, but then never follow-through and WEAR IT. Even with the tie-front, I just didn't reach for it.
So, I decided I just needed to take it up a notch and make it work better for my style! It's a very classic, timeless piece... BUT I'M TIRED OF BASIC BORING CLASSIC.
As most of you know, I live in a suburb of Seattle, and an unavoidable consequence of that is that I care about the environment. I mean, not in an extreme "off-the-grid" militant angry vegan way, but I like the Earth. After all, it's where I keep all my stuff. So I try not to be a dick by trashing my own place. I do what I can to not turn our planet into a total dump. I pick up litter off the street (even if it's not mine), I recycle and reuse things, I try not to waste water, and things like that. Even if you're just doing a few small things, it matters!
It's only been in the past year or so that I've realized the terrible environmental (and financial) impact of clothing manufacturing. The amount of waste from just producing a pair of jeans is crazy! So I've been buying consignment instead. I'm pretty convinced that there is more than enough clothing already produced in the entire world to clothe us all and then some, and we don't need to mass produce the way we do. Bonus points: it's been way easier on my wallet too!
I've also been looking more at what my products are MADE out of. You already know I love Rothy's (here's my blog post about them HERE! And if you're a newbie and want to try them out, take $20 off your first pair by using THIS LINK, and if you're already a Rothy's fan, use code "PANDORA" for free next-day shipping. Also, use Ebates for 5% cashback on your Rothy's! Sign up HERE if your'e not a member already. You're welcome).
Rothy's are made from recycled plastic bottles. It also means that they're machine-washable and last a lot longer than the traditional textiles we use for shoes.
I recently found this brand, Nuno, that makes scarves and other accessories from plastic! Their "neo-silk" fabric is made to look and feel like silk, and the brand also collaborates with artists for their prints! And, they're NOT expensive! And to make it even cheaper, you can take $10 off your order through my link HERE. But first, here are some of the items from their site:
I have ordered two items and I'll review them once they arrive! I have been looking for some scarves to replace the Hermes scarves I sold off last year. I bought the Skinny Scarf in "Blank Slate" and the Furoshiki Scarf in "Wide Eyed" by artist Jason Naylor. If anyone is going to rock a scarf covered in neon eyeballs, it's ME. If I like the items and they live up to their claims, I'll probably end up buying the WHOLE collection. Like literally all of it. Their site is https://nunolove.com/shop if you want to go check out their goods for yourself!
If there are any other environmentally-friendly brands you'd like to see featured, leave me a comment!
See you tomorrow!
