Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlain

Emma prefers to share her thoughts with a microphone rather than a physical human being, so thank god she has a podcast. Recorded from the comfort of her bed, Emma talks at length about whatever is on her mind every week. Anything really does go on this podcast. Sometimes philosophy, sometimes a random story from 10 years ago, sometimes advice, and sometimes nothing at all. You never know what you are going to get, but that’s what keeps it interesting. New episodes every Thursday.

You can watch the podcast on YouTube or stream it on Spotify. Apple podcasts, whatever you like, have the option. You can either listen to it or watch it, but with anything goes you can only listen to it. And you're probably wondering why that is. The answer is because I like to record my podcasts laying down in bed. Naked. And. Not showered? And I like to have dirty plates on my night stand and dirty cups on my night stand. And I like living this way. This is how I live. This is how I enjoy living and. That is why there's no video version for this podcast. I'm not wearing pants right now. You see what I'm saying? But I love that. I love that about the podcast. I love the fact that I don't have to wear pants, and I love the fact that I'm laying down flat in bed right now. I wonder if it affects the sound of my voice, though. I wonder if laying down like makes my tone of voice different. Let me sit up and see if I sound different. Do I sound different? Because now I'm sitting up. OK, **** all of this. What are we talking about this week? This week? This week we're going casual mode, OK? I just want to have a light conversation. I love having deep conversations, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I'm just not in the mood to go deep, and today is one of those days. To be honest, I just woke up from a nap. I'm not really in some sort of introspective mood. OK, I just googled the word introspective to make sure I used it correctly. I think I did. It's good enough anyway. I'm not in a super deep mood, so today we're going to be talking about products that I've purchased. That have changed my life. Because. I definitely have a minor. Shopping. Addiction, and it's gotten a lot better recently. I am not even remotely as bad as I used to be, but I used to be pretty bad about my shopping habits. Like. I would buy **** just but like, not like **** like. A designer bag like I'm talking about. I would go on Amazon and buy like the most random gadgets. For no reason. Or like I would buy. I like used to just want to buy like 15 pairs of sweatpants for no reason and it's not like they wouldn't get used, it's more just a little bit unnecessary. I also do genuinely love thrifting and I do thrift a lot which. Is definitely a part of my shopping problem, but I do think that thrifting because it's kind of like a hobby for me. I feel like it's kind of justified. It's also. A sustainable way to purchase clothes, which again is like kind of. I'm. I'm honestly just trying to justify. How often I go thrifting. But I feel like it's like at least less bad, like it could be worse. But anyway, I bought a lot of things in my life, for better or for worse, and I want to share, you know, the things that I think have been genuinely worth it. And maybe in the future I'll make an episode about things that I bought, that I hated. But. Let's take it one step at a time here. Let's just get right into it. So the first thing that I bought recently, actually, that has genuinely been an amazing addition to my life is my bed desk. So. Basically. It's a desk. For your bed. It's. Not too big. It's maybe like 2 feet long. A foot and 1/2 wide. And it has legs so that it like stands up. And you can put it on your lap. And sit up in bed. And work on it. And it's. Actually, the best thing ever. I'm obsessed with it. I work in bed a lot and I know a lot of you guys probably. Find yourself working on things in bed too, and this has been a game changer, OK? It's made my life easier on so many levels if I want to journal or draw or do anything of that sort. The bed desk. Immediately makes that experience 10 times more enjoyable if I am working on my computer. I put my computer on the bed desk. I put my bed desk over my lap. I type a storm. I type up a storm. And it's 10 times easier also. My computer. Gets really hot. I mean, I think everybody's does, but like mine gets really hot, especially when I'm editing YouTube videos because. The software that I use to edit videos literally makes my computer. Overwork itself to a point where I feel like it's going to explode every time I'm editing. Like the fan internal fan inside of my computer starts like. Getting really loud and I could probably fry an egg on my computer. While editing YouTube videos. Anyway, the point is. That can be kind of uncomfortable, having a hot computer sitting on your lap. There's also no way that that's healthy for you. Again, that's when the bed desk comes in handy. Long story short, this has been great. Another thing is that sometimes I use it when I want to eat in bed because I really like eating in bed. I think it's very underrated. It's great for eating in bed. Last but not least, I like to watch Netflix and YouTube and stuff like that on my computer rather than. On a TV for some reason and. When I'm laying down flat in my bed. I put my laptop. On the bed desk and then kind of tilt the screen down a little bit. And then. I get to watch TV or YouTube on my computer at the perfect angle. On the bed desk, did I just talk about a bed desk for like 5 minutes? Yes, I'm very embarrassed, but I really am trying to sell you on this because it's one of the best things I've bought recently. Uh. I would absolutely recommend. Next. This is another thing I bought recently. A tongue scraper. OK, imagine this. A piece of wire that's shaped into you with little rubber tips on each end. That's a tongue scraper. After you brush your teeth, you scrape your tongue with this thing like three or four times spit. Rinse out your mouth. Your mouth feels. Even cleaner. OK. I recently had an experience. Where I got a tonsil stone, and if you don't know what that is, it's basically like a little growth on your tonsil. Super benign. Is it's not dangerous whatsoever. It's just like a little growth. That forms from bacteria, I think. I don't even know. I don't really know, but it's basically like a white dot on your tonsil. In your throat and they smell bad. Like awful. And I recently got one and I didn't know what. Was wrong with me at first, like I just. Could smell that my breath was disgusting, but like, I didn't know why because I was like, *****. I ******* brush, floss, use mouthwash twice a day, sometimes three times a day. I brush my teeth so hard. That, like my gums are receding. Like I feel like my dental hygiene is almost too good to a point where it's actually bad. Why do I have bad breath right now anyway? It turned out is because I had a tonsil stone, but that experience was so traumatizing for me. Like just having bad breath for like 3 days until I got that tonsil stone removed. That I decided I wanted to take my oral care up a notch and that's why I bought this tongue scraper and it really is great. It's so easy to use, it's not like an annoying added step to your routine, and it definitely makes your breath and mouth. Feel and taste even more fresh than it normally does, which honestly to me. Is great. I love when my mouth feels clean. Which is kind of ironic because, like, I don't. I'm somebody who like. Doesn't feel the need to shower unless I'm seeing people. But yeah, my mouth is always clean. So like my hair. I'll go 5 days without washing my hair, but my mouth must always be clean. I find it weird that it's not like a trend throughout. My personality to be completely clean. It's like only in some areas. It's only with my mouth, the rest of my body, I don't give a ****. I don't care if I'm stinky as long as I'm by myself. But like my mouth, even if I'm by myself, must always feel clean. Anyway, Speaking of not showering my next. Product is alcohol wipes. So basically, think of like a wet wipe that's soaked with. 70% alcohol, OK. Uh, now? This product I I use more than I wish to admit and the way that I use it is. A little bit ****** **. But I feel like I have to share this hack with you because I think it's just like too good. So let me give you a scenario. You shower. You get out of the shower. You put on your deodorant. You know you get ready for the day and you go out for the day. Maybe you go and run errands. Whatever. It's 90 degrees out. It's hot. Immediately as you're out. You start freaking out because you're like, I'm going to sweat through my deodorant in approximately 3 seconds. It's just that hot out. What am I to do? That's when the alcohol wipe comes in. OK, the 2nd that. You've sweat through your deodorant and. **** hits the fan. You take out an alcohol wipe, you wipe your armpits. And then you put deodorant. On again, then you reapplied the deodorant. Did I explain that badly? I don't know. Basically. Alcohol wipes. Kill bacteria like no other and the reason why. Your armpits smell bad is because of bacteria, right? So. If you don't want to shower again, but you stink a little bit in your armpit area. You can just take an alcohol wipe, wipe your armpits, kill all the bacteria and then. Put on more deodorant and it's like a fresh start. I do this constantly. I do this all the time because I sweat through my deodorant all the time. OK. And also, sometimes, like I'm I don't want to shower again. I'm like, I don't need to shower again. I'm clean, I showered 3 hours ago. I just sweat through my deodorant quicker than I thought. There's the quick fix. OK, it saved my *** hundreds of times. Don't sleep on alcohol wipes. I'm not sure if it's like healthy to be putting alcohol. I guess it's not bad. I don't see how it could be bad. It's probably not the best thing for your skin. I think alcohol is really harsh on your skin, but then again, it's only your armpit, so. I think it's fine anyway, alcohol wipes I constantly have. An entire. You know container of them in my room at all times. For emergencies. They're like literally one of my most used body products. As disgusting and ****** ** as it is so anyway. Next. This is a slightly more pricey item, but it has genuinely changed my life so I'm going to share it. Regardless. It is the dry bar double shot blow dryer brush, OK? This is basically a blow dryer that's also a brush, so it looks like a hair brush, but when you brush your hair with it, it dries your hair. This is. A lazy ******* dream and I am. Very lazy, as you can probably imagine. Based on my alcohol wipe. Usage. OK. I'm very lazy. So. The concept of a hair brush that is also a blow dryer changed my life. I have never known how to properly blow dry my hair. I'm 20 and I still have not learned how to properly blow dry my hair. With a traditional blow dryer, it's just really, like, difficult. And like, you know, you have to use those special brushes and all that stuff to make your hair, you know? Look cute and blown out properly and I just, like have never cared enough to learn about how to do that. So like. This product has changed my life because it's so easy to use and. It just does all the ******* dirty work for you. Like all you have to do is literally sit there for like 15 minutes and brush your hair with this. Hair brush blow dryer. Hybrid. And then you're done and your hair is blow dried and it's great. And I also feel like it's relatively gentle. I don't know, it might not be, so don't take my word for it, but I feel like. It's not super. I don't know, like it. I don't feel like it's destroying my hair. And it might be so again, I don't want to say this. And then you guys are like Emma. This is still a very hot product. Hot like physically temperature hot product and it's still damaging your hair. It probably is, but for some reason. It doesn't feel like it is. So that's at least a plus. Whether or not it is damaging my hair I don't know, but either way this product has changed my life and I also I don't use it everyday by any means but like. You know, if I need to run out of the house and like go to dinner or something and I don't want to have wet hair, that's when the blow dryer brush comes in handy. Otherwise I let my hair air dry just cause my hair is quite damaged because I bleached it for many months. And now it's recovering from that. So I try not to use heat on my hair, but when I do, I'm usually using. This blow dryer brush and I would really recommend it. OK, so if I were to host a live radio show and I could play any music I wanted. I would honestly probably have the time of my Life OK, but I'll admit I would probably end up playing. Just sad music. I don't know what it is about me, but I love sad music, OK? And so I'd probably end up playing. A lot of sad music. Specifically for the people who are listening in the car by themselves. That want to shed a tear in a good way? Well now there is a place that I or you or anyone can host a live show. Amp is the platform that allows people to come together and create live, unfiltered radio shows with whatever music or content that they love. And this is like a real show where you can have people listening live and you can pick exactly which songs to play, and you can even have fans calling in to chat while you're on air. If I had a live show, I would definitely. Have people call in and ask me for dating advice honestly, so I think I'd have to do dating advice. You know what this actually sounds like the perfect radio show. Sad music combined with dating advice, because all of the shows on AMP are run by real people. You can tell that the playlists are authentic. A playlist generated automatically just sounds different than one that an individual is controlling based on their passions and tastes. And with 10s of millions of licensed songs to choose from, everyone will find the music that appeals to them. But it's not just music. You can have a talk show, or react to news, or riff on pop culture, and that's one of the best parts about being a podcast host. You can just riff. On whatever. Excites your mind on any given day.

Pepto bismol pills. OK, so for those of you who don't have stomach issues, just. Skip the next. 2 minutes because this will not apply to you, but I have. A little irritable bowel syndrome. OK, I have a little bit of tummy issues. Basically my stomach is very sensitive and. A lot of things irritated and so. You know. Generally I. In pretty good about, you know, knowing which foods make my stomach hurt and which don't, so I can kind of avoid the foods that are going to cause me discomfort. But sometimes you know, when you go out to eat or. You go to a restaurant, you know, you don't know exactly what's in everything, so like there might be something in there that could cause stomach pain. That's when the Pepto Bismol pills come in. I'm not kidding. Nothing settles my stomach like Pepto. Pepto. Why can't I ******* say Pepto Bismol pills? OK? They're great, and I don't know where they've been my whole life. The only downside of taking them is that. They turn your poop black. OK, so like. I. Like repeatedly was having. I mean, this is disgusting. But like, let's just say, you know, I'd go to the bathroom and I'd be like, why is? Why does it look like? A literal. Cave in the toilet right now, like it's black. Like what is going on? And I was kind of frightened because, you know. People always tell you if your **** is black, it's because you're internally bleeding and you need to go to the ******* hospital. So I was very scared the first time I took the Pepto Bismol pills because I was like. Why is my **** black anyway? My mom and dad reassured me that it is, in fact from. Those pills I don't know. I don't know, but if you have tummy problems. Try these. You can get them so easily over the counter. They're very safe product. And they really helped settle out my stomach. And they're the best things that I've used because people always are like, use Tums. Use tums. I'm so sorry, but my stomach issues are way too bad to be using Tums. Like, when my stomach hurts, it's not just like, oh, I have a little crampy. No, like, I feel like I'm dying. That could also be because I'm dramatic. I don't know. But maybe it is because my stomach issues just are, like, very excruciating. Regardless, Toms do not work. They are smarties. Tums are literally just. Smarties with. A medicine label on the back. I'm sorry. I do not believe that they do anything. They might just not work for me. Listen, if they work for you, congratulations. Lucky you. Because they are kind of delicious in a weird way, but they don't work for me, but. Pepto bismol. And they're cute and pink. They're like cute little pink. Whatever, I'm moving on. Next is mini fabric scissors. OK. O for some background on why. Many fabric scissors are such an important product in my life. I will take you back to when I was younger. When I was younger, I used to be so. Weird about clothes and how they fit. And how they felt like. I used to make my mom buy me special socks that didn't have. A seam in them, you know how like. On the top of socks, there's like that seam on top of your toes. That bothered me. And so I would make my mom buy me seamless socks that literally had zero seams. Umm. And if I would spill a little bit of water? On my clothes when I was younger, I'd have to change my whole outfit. I'm talking about like I would spill the tiniest little bit. Of water on myself and I changed my entire outfit. And. If I had A tag in my shirt. I would immediately cut it out, and if it wasn't something that was able to be cut out, I would sometimes have my mom. Cover. The tag. With like a softer fabric so that it wouldn't irritate my skin. I don't know why I've always been so picky about my clothes. I'm I'm definitely better about it now. I really like. I wear socks that have seams on the toe now you know. If I spill water on myself, I don't give a ****. I even wear itchy sweaters sometimes if they're cute enough. I'm a lot more chill now, but the one thing that I'm still. A freak about is tags in my clothes, like immediately when I buy something, I cut the tag out without fail every single time and. For the past few years I've been cutting out tags. With like ****** scissors. Like ****** scissors. Just that are meant for like day-to-day use and. It's left me cutting holes. In my shirts on accident constantly because the scissors don't have the right precision, you know, they're just meant for like. Cutting paper and **** they're not meant for like. Cutting out intricate tags, so I got these mini little fabric scissors. And now I can cut tags out with precision and it doesn't leave holes. In my shirts. But it's weird. How? Picky I am about tags like the. The question is the question I have is like am I just really sensitive? To that or like, is everyone sensitive to that and our brands just not? Self aware enough. To realize that they maybe should not be putting. Uncomfortable tags in their shirts. Like I don't know who the problem is. Is it the brands that are the problem or is it me? Let me know if you guys have this problem as well, because I kind of feel kind of stupid but I don't know. Next, my current favorite lip product is. A little bit overpriced, I will say that, but I I'm not kidding though. I have not found a better lip product in my life. And for that, I do believe that it's. Kind of worth the money. I hate to even say that, but it's just so good. It's the Dior lip oil. OK, I know. If you are sitting at home right now and you're like Emma, why the **** are you talking about a ******* designer lip balm? Shut the **** **. I get it. I get where you're coming from, but my friend recommended it to me and I was like, are you kidding me? She was like, no, dude, like, you got to try it. And I was like, OK, and she was right. I mean, I've never used a better lip product. They're like 35 bucks, but they last for a really long time and the reason why they're so great is because they are the perfect. Lip product for the gal on the go and I'll explain #1 they're hydrating, right? But they're not sticky. I really don't like sticky. Lip products because. I don't know, like my hair gets caught in it. It's ******* annoying. Whatever. This is not sticky. It's like thick, but also. Not sticky. I can't explain it, like I don't know how they came up with this formula, but it's like not sticky. But it's still thick and satisfying to use, and it stays on for a decent amount of time. They also have tinted ones, so if you want to add a little bit of color to your lips, they have tinted ones and it adds a beautiful color. Nothing too crazy. But also it's not like one of those products where it says that it's tinted and then you put it on, you're like, OK, there's. No tint here, babe. Where's the tint? Like it's just sheer. You lied to me. Moral of the story is, it's an amazing product I. Give credit where it's due and. The Dior lip oil. Had to make it in here. I have one in my purse at all times and I have one in my car at all times, and I've had the same 2 for like probably six months now and. I'm not even halfway done using them, so that's the other thing. They last forever. I don't know it. It's definitely like, not necessary, but I just love it so much I had to mention it. Next. The JBL. Clip speaker. So this is basically a mini speaker. That has a clip on it so that you can clip it on to things. You know. You could clip it onto your backpack, onto your purse, onto your pant belt loop, whatever now. Here's the reason why I love this. Because I live alone so I can do weird things and I love to take this mini speaker and clip it onto my pants and play music. And then walk around the house and do my chores and then the music follows me. It's also great, obviously, like, you know, if you're going to the beach or something and you want to just clip it onto your beach bag, like, yes, that's also great, but no, I like to use it to clip it onto my pants. While I'm, you know, running around the house and doing chores and, you know, to an onlooker. I would look ******* crazy and weird for doing this, but because I live alone it is not weird and it's actually very enjoyable. An alternative to this is literally just wearing headphones. And I know that, but there's something satisfying about having the music playing out loud. Whatever. Regardless, this mini speaker is great it it's super loud, even though it's tiny. So I love it, but I mean that's my specific way of using it is clipping it onto my pants. It's weird, but. Don't knock it till you try it. Next. Fashion tape. I don't know why. I didn't get into using fashion tape sooner, but let me tell you it is so useful. Fashion tape is basically tape that works on fabric. So. This is like a popular thing to have. Like I think this is like relatively common, like a lot of people use fashion tape, but. I didn't realize how truly useful it was until recently when I bought some and it changed my life. I'll give some examples of when I use it. Let's say I'm wearing. A tank top. And I want my bra straps to hide under the tank top. But. They slip out sometimes. I fashioned tape my bra strap underneath. My tank top. And then it doesn't move, and then my bra strap doesn't show. Incredible. Or let's say I'm wearing a button down shirt and around my **** area, despite the fact that I don't have big ***** which is sometimes unfortunate. No, it's actually fine. You know what? I don't care. I'm trying to learn to accept myself. My ******* are great as they are. I don't care. But like. Sometimes, you know, if you're wearing a button up shirt and it's kind of tight. The. Button area. Around your **** area it can kind of like. Not lay flat and lay properly. Fashion tape it. There's so many other ways I've used it I just can't even remember like. It's so incredibly useful and I just don't know why I didn't start using it sooner, but it's saved my *** so many times because there's so many times when I'm like going to wear something But then I'm like, oh, it's just like not fitting right, blah blah blah. And now I feel like there's so many more things that I can wear because. I have the equipment to make it fit and look proper. I also recently bought safety pins and I use safety pins all the time. I literally safety pin my clothes. In different ways, all the time to make things fit just a little bit better or like if something's like a little off like, I just safety pin it. And it's not like it's uncomfortable, like it's not. It's. It's just like. Making clothes fit in lay perfectly. I just think I was always too lazy before to do this. But now that I'm older and I'm starting to enjoy, you know, wearing more complex outfits. Those two tools really come in handy and I think that people are kind of sleeping on them a little bit, because I was. But now that I have them in my home, they get used constantly. OK, the next thing I recently bought, you guys are gonna ******* laugh at me because you're gonna be like Emma. Are you kidding me? This product changed your life. Like stop. I recently bought. A. Lufa for my shower. OK, I know. If you don't know what a loofah is, it's basically like. Something that you can put in your hand in the shower and rub all over your body. How the **** do you explain a loofah if you don't know what a loop is? I don't know. It's basically like. A little plastic. Thing. That you can put in your hand. And you put your soap on it and then you rub. The soap on your body with the loofah and it kind of exfoliates your skin as you're washing your body now. I get it. Most people use these. ***** I didn't. OK, I didn't. Up until recently, I would sometimes use a washcloth. But most of the time I would just wash my body with soap in my hand and rub it everywhere and that was it. But let me tell you my skin all over my body since starting to use. This loofah. Has felt so much softer that it feels like all of the missing pieces of my life. Prior to me starting using this loofa now makes sense. Like I feel like everything's coming together now that I use a loofah, like. My skin. Glows. Everywhere. Like? My arm skin is like glowing, like I I've always exfoliated my face, you know? And that's like, whatever. So my face skin. Is, you know, it tends to glow. When I'm treating it properly, but like I never thought about making my body skin glow. But using a loofa gets rid of all the dead skins so that you look like you're ******* glowing all over your body. You see what I'm saying? Listen, this might sound obvious to some, but it wasn't to me. I just thought it was pointless. I was like. What's the point of having? A loofah? Like, I I never understood I was like, OK, yeah, maybe it exfoliates. But like, who cares? Like, I don't need to do that. Like, why do I need to exfoliate my body? Like, what's the point? Well, the point is, is that it makes you glow from within. I don't know why. It's just like even my legs look like they're glowing. It's so weird. OK. Last product. That I'm talking about. Is something that. I've used throughout the past like five or six years on and off, but I'm going through a phase again where I'm using it so I thought it would be necessary to bring up. And it's very simple. It's nothing crazy, but it is a game changer for me and I will explain why. It is a hydro flask water bottle with a sippy cup lid. OK, sippy cup. Meaning like a straw lid. Hydro flasks are water bottles that keep your ice cold for like 24 hours, and that's not even a joke. Like it really does keep your ice cold forever. And. They're very hyped up. There's a lot of hype around them, a lot of people. Have hydro flasks talk about hydro flasks. But they really are truly worth the money. And they are. Honestly, I kid you not. They are the only thing that make me drink water without, like my hydroflask. I don't drink water. For the past, like year, I haven't been using a hydroflask. And when I tell you I've maybe had five glasses of water within the past year, I'm not kidding. All of my other hydration has come from. I don't know. I do not know. Like? I went through a phase for the past year where I just didn't drink water, but recently I was like, Emma, you need to figure it out cause like, this is like genuinely bad for you. I'm I'm not kidding. I don't know how. I didn't die, I don't know how. I wasn't constantly dehydrated, and I might have been, but regardless, this hydroflask and having this hydroflask on hand at all times. Keeps me drinking water, and I also am somebody who really loves ice cold water. And the hydroflask keeps the water cold, so it's always at a desirable temperature for me, and that makes me want to drink water constantly. So I just constantly keep my hydroflask with me and I'm really going to try. To keep this habit going, because I tend to like have phases where I'll use my hydroflask for like 2 months straight and I'll drink so much water and I'll just be like on a roll and then. I'll just fall off the bandwagon and stop using it, and then I literally stopped drinking water. So this is like my lifeline. I need to continue to use the Hydro Flask, but it's the only. Product that I've found that's gotten me to drink water. So. There it is. OK. The last product is not something that I'm even recommending to you guys. I just needed to mention it because it's. Almost funny how stupid it is. The last product is a litter robot. Umm. Basically. I have cats. I have two kitties. And. Obviously a part about having cats is cleaning their litter box, and personally there's nothing I despise more than cleaning the litter box. And so my mom found. This product online called Litter Robot and it's basically a litter box that self cleans itself. And I'm not going to lie, I don't want any of you guys right now to go online and look up how much it costs because I'm genuinely mortified. It's way too much money. It is a stupid amount of money but at the same time I have 0 regrets about it like. It's kind of amazing. It's so dumb and it's so stupid and it's so unnecessary, but it's also so incredible. Literally. Also, it looks like a spaceship if you look up a picture of a little robot. They literally it's like a Dome. And it rotates and ****. And. It took the cats a while to get used to it because it's kind of scary for them because it's super weird looking, but. It's great, like it's self cleans itself. You only have to empty it like once a week and you don't have to scoop anything. It's incredible. But like, how bad of a cat mom am I that I don't even wanna *******? Clean the litter box. Cats are like genuinely an easy pet to have. You feed them twice a day, you clean their litter box and you give them water. It's so easy. Yet, like I. I'm such a ***** ** **** that I decided to waste my money on a literal self cleaning litter robot so that I could eliminate one of the responsibilities from owning a cat I like. How am I going to have children one day? I don't know. Like, I'm I'm concerned about how bad I am at taking care of things like, I just. I literally like. I'm cheating my way through being a cat mom. How am I going to be as a real mother to a real human child? Like, by the time I'm a mom, they'll probably be like robot nannies. And Lord knows I'm probably gonna get one, because I'm really. Bad at this **** but anyway, those are all the products that. Yeah. Have changed my life recently. And they might sound stupid and mundane and whatever, but. Those are genuinely the things that. Keep me afloat. And maybe, you know, you can pick some of them up and maybe they'll enhance your life as well. I have some friends and family members who wear contacts, and honestly, I can't imagine how much of a pain it must be to always have to go to the eye doctor, go in for unnecessary tests. When you know that your prescription hasn't changed. It's so time-consuming and so stressful. I truly can't imagine one 800 contacts has been making people's lives so much easier and delivering contact lenses for 27 years. They make getting contacts super fast and easy. Even if you have a really strong prescription, all you have to do is order the same contacts you would get from your doctor. Just look on the side of your contacts box for that info.

Online using their express exam and there are so many benefits to going through. One 800 contacts. They guarantee if you find your contacts at a lower price elsewhere, they'll beat it.

Circle was created for people like me, OK, who don't drink enough water every day circles basically this water bottle with over 40 flavor cartridges that makes drinking water way more tasty. The flavors cover all the bases. They have fruit, punches, iced teas. Some even have caffeine or electrolytes, but there's no sugar, there's no calories, and there's no artificial flavors. My favorite flavor is strawberry Kiwi. And my favorite thing about it is I love how the dial on the cartridge lets you choose how much flavor you get per sip. All you have to do is twist the dial to a certain number for how much flavor that you want and you're ready to go. So the cool thing about it is that you can put the cartridge on. And you can set it to whatever setting you want. So you could set it to a setting where when you take a sip of water, it just tastes like water, so there's no flavor added. But if you're in the mood to add some flavor, you can twist it a little bit. And then you have a super flavorful sip. Right now Circle is giving all of my listeners. Up to 35% off their order, plus free shipping on all orders of $15 or more. Plus, as an added bonus, we're throwing in my favorite flavor, strawberry Kiwi, for free. Just visit drink circom Emma. That's drink CIRUL com Emma to get this limited time offer today again. That's I asked you guys on the Twitter. To ask me questions about products, like for example, whether or not something is worth the money or what might go to brands are for certain things, and you guys tweeted questions at me, I'm going to answer them. And it's going to be fun, hopefully. OK, somebody said is spending money on stuff for painting worth it? I really want to start doing some creative stuff, but I'm scared it'll get used once or twice and then I'll forget about it. The thing about art supplies is that. They don't need to be expensive. Like? I just recently bought some watercolors off Amazon. They were like 20 bucks and I bought paper. Like kind of decent, you know, paper to paint on. I think that was like 15 bucks. And then I bought brushes for like maybe 10 bucks. You don't need to spend a lot of money on art supplies when you're just getting started, because when you're just getting started, it's all about just figuring out whether or not you like it. So I don't think you need to spend a lot of money in the beginning. And the good thing is too, if you don't spend a lot of money on it then. There's no pressure to like. Use them to their fullest capacity. You know, if you end up being like painting's not really my thing, then it's not that big of a deal because you didn't spend 100 bucks on like the best art supplies. The other thing is, is that you can still make amazing art with cheap supplies. You know, the quality of art has nothing to do with the supplies and everything to do with just you putting your heart and soul into it. So I would say don't waste your money on super expensive stuff in the beginning. If down the line when you start getting into art more you're like, oh, I really want to, you know, indulge and spend more than sure. Why not because you know you're going to use it. But in the beginning, I just don't think there's a reason to because in general you don't need to have expensive equipment. And it's the same thing with. You know, even making YouTube videos or. Uh. Other creative things like. You don't need to start out with the nicest stuff like I started YouTube, you know, editing on. Like my old laptop and I used my phone. To film the videos. I didn't buy new spicy equipment, you know what I'm saying? I just use stuff that I already had and. It was totally fine, you know, obviously like, was the quality the best? No, but it didn't really matter. At the end of the day, creative stuff. Has a lot more depth than, like the supplies that you use to create with, if that makes sense. Somebody said, do you think designer clothes are worth the price? This is a great question I. Think. Sometimes yes and sometimes no, and I'll give you the scenarios when I think it's yes and when I think it's no. If you're buying a really nice pair of shoes or a really nice bag, like a really nice staple piece. I do think that. Buying from a designer brand or a luxury brand is worth the price and the reason for that is is that you know designer brands and luxury brands use the best materials and. They manufacture their products in ways that. Make the product last. As long as possible. Whereas, you know, buying something from Amazon that's like $5 is not created, you know, with that same intent in mind. And so I think that if you're buying something. That you're planning on having for a really long time. And that is a staple piece. Buying from a luxury or designer brand. Can be worth it for sure. But I don't think it's worth it if you're just buying something. From a luxury or designer brand. As like maybe more of a flex like an example would be, you know, spending a lot of money on. A designer belt that you're only gonna wear twice because it's so, you know, flamboyant that it's only going to match like two things in your closet, and. You're just kind of buying it because you know. It's a flax that's not worth it to me, because you could buy a great belt from a thrift store. You know what I'm saying? That's like. Stood the test of time already. That would match everything in your closet, and that's worth it. You know what I'm saying? Because it I guess it matters. It's based on what your intent is. Is your intent to like, flex and brag, or is your intent to buy a staple piece? That's going to last you forever that you're going to use constantly. That's the question that you should be asking yourself. You know, because like another example would even be like a sweatshirt from a designer brand. I don't necessarily think that that's. Worth it. You know what I'm saying? I think it depends on you. And like, if you really love the design and it's something that like, speaks to you, then that's great. But unless that's the case. I don't think that it's worth it. It's more just at that point, kind of like a flex and a status symbol, which for some people is like fun, and I totally get that, but I just don't think it's as worth it. Somebody said what are your go to gas stations, snacks? OK. I love a good coconut water. Especially the one that has the coconut chunks in it. The brand that I usually go for, if they have it, is called pure Nirvana, I believe. Hopefully that's right. If it's not, I'm gonna be embarrassed. I'm Googling it. Hold on. Oh, it's called taste Nirvana. Thank God I looked that up. OK, taste Nirvana. Real coconut water with pulp. It's basically like coconut water that has coconut chunks in it. It's so good. I love getting that. I love cheese. Its white cheddar cheese. Its although they do hurt my stomach but sometimes you just have to say **** it. Because they're so good, I also love smokehouse almonds. Don't ask me why. They're kind of gross and weird, but at the same time, I, like can't stop eating them. Every time I get them. They're like, weirdly so good. They kind of taste like BBQ almonds. It's so weird, but I love them. They kind of also taste like bacon. I also love to get. Extra polar ice gum. It is the best gum in my opinion. And it has those little tiny. Flavor. Granules in it that like. I can't ******* explain it. Whatever, it's the best gum. I also like to get a smart water with the sport top lid. And last but not least, orange tic Tacs. That is my go to gas station snack. Somebody said do you think that Apple products are worth it? Absolutely, absolutely 1000%. I use Apple products for everything that I do. I use Apple products to edit my YouTube videos. I use Apple products to take photos, like when I use my phone I, you know, use my iPhone to take photos I. Have always been a huge Apple lover, and I think that all of the products are truly worth it. Obviously, you know, the products aren't necessarily always perfect, but they're just the best out there, you know, I I truly believe that. And you know. I just think that there's nothing. I don't know, I just think that they're so great and some people are like really anti apple. They're like, no. We only like PC and you know what? To each their own. That's totally fine. I think the most incredible thing about Apple products is how they all work in harmony. So if you have all Apple products, they all work in harmony with one another and it makes life easier. And I just, I genuinely think that they're worth it. 1000%. Somebody said what is your go to brand for simple jewelry? My go to brand for simple jewelry is called masury ME. JURI. I believe and I love. Getting really simple pieces from there. Like if I just want a super simple necklace, a super simple earring. Whatever, that's where I go because they have super. Good quality, but not too expensive staple jewelry pieces and. They're just the best. Umm. There are a lot of other jewelry brands that I love from more like specialty jewelry pieces, but when it comes to like the basics. That's usually where I go. Somebody said best place for fancy dresses. Honestly. Reformation the brand reformation is really great. They have super cute, flattering dresses. They're also a very sustainable brand. Which is super cool. And their dresses are a little bit pricey, but it's because they're sustainable and they're sustainably made, you know? Which is cool and makes sense, right? And they're just dainty and simple, but classic and timeless, and I just think they do an amazing job. So I would say that they would have to be like the best fancy dress brand, but also in the grand scheme of things like when fancy dresses are ******* expensive, I feel like reformation comes in at a good price in comparison to like other fancy dresses. If I have to like go to a wedding or something last minute I go to reformation and they just got my back every time. Somebody said, what's a good deodorant that isn't bad for the environment? But also smells good. Native deodorant is great. I actually have a deodorant in my car at all times. Because I refuse to ever exist without deodorant. Like, I literally take deodorant with me everywhere. Like, I refuse to leave the House unless I have a deodorant at least within 100 feet of me at all times. And I'm, like, aware of it. Do you know what I'm saying? Like? I either have a deodorant in my bag or I have a deodorant in my car at all times. And right now the one in my car is native deodorant and it's actually in a cardboard packaging and it's great, and I use it all the time, and the cardboard packaging is obviously much better for the environment. And the deodorant works great and it also is it doesn't have all the chemicals in it. So it's good. I really like it. So that is my recommendation. But I also use like 10 different types of deodorants, like that's not the only type of deodorant I use. But that's just the one in my car right now, and I'm a fan and it's good for the environment. So love. Somebody said, do you think it's worth it to pay a fortune for one nice piece of jewelry, or do you think getting a bunch of cheaper jewelry and replacing it more often is more worth it? Personally, I prefer to spend a little bit extra on getting higher quality jewelry that will last me a long time, and here's the reason for that, number one. I have really sensitive ears, so like when I'm buying earrings. I really prefer the quality to be nice, because if not, I can have a reaction, you know, like my my piercing will have a reaction, and that's not cute. But also, you know, I don't like when my jewelry starts to rust and stuff like that. And that's like sitting on my skin. I I don't know if it's bad for you, but I can't imagine it's good for you. And I also like to wear my jewelry in the shower, you know, in the pool. Like, I like to be able to wear my jewelry and I like to never have to take it off. So that's why I'd rather spend a little bit more money on, on nicer jewelry that'll last me for a really long time and that I can, like, wear in my day-to-day life and not even worry about it or think about it because obviously nicer jewelry, real jewelry. You can wear in the water. In the shower and all of that, and it won't rust. It might tarnish a little bit, but you can get that fixed pretty easily. Like they just you can take it into a jewelry store and they clean it, or you can clean it at home. It's really easy, but it's never like rusting, you know what I'm saying? And. I just think that's better because I'm somebody who's really lazy about like, putting on jewelry before I leave the house, so I prefer to wear like, you know? A handful of staple pieces at all times. That I can just wear 24/7, you know that are good quality will last me forever and so I have like. You know. A few necklaces and a few bracelets and a few pairs of earrings that are nice and simple and versatile and I just wear them all the time. And that's kind of how I do it. I think that spending money on jewelry is worth it because it does last forever, and it's just I I also feel like I get more wear out of it because I don't have to take it off when I'm getting into the shower, blah blah blah blah so. Somebody said, do you have a go to shampoo? Slash conditioner? Brand. A lot of them ruined my hair. Listen, I don't know if you should listen to me because my hair is ****** ** from bleaching it for so long, so I don't even know what works for my hair at this point, but right now I'm using one from my hair salon, so and that one's like. I don't. I tried to find it online and you literally can't buy it online. Like, I swear to God, I don't know where my hair lady gets it. Like, she must be getting it from some sort of scary black market deep web ****. Because like, I I tried to find it for like 2 hours and I was like, where do you get this? And she was like, oh, you have to buy it through me and I was like, what? Anyway, so obviously I can't recommend that one, but. I like function of beauty. They do like custom hair. Stuff. I've had a great experience with them and I really like it. That's pretty much the only other one I use now that I think about it. Oh my God, no. This other one I used to use was really good. I don't use it anymore. But it was really good and it was called. Matrix biolage color last vibrancy shampoo and conditioner. And it's great. It smells really good. And if you color your hair, it's great. I had a great experience with that one. I don't know why I stopped using it, but. It's great. Somebody said, do you think Lululemon activewear is actually worth it? I think that with active wear it's kind of similar to jewelry in a way like. You know, buying a nice pair of leggings and a nice sports bra, you know, that can last you like 5 years. I have some sports bras from Lululemon that I've literally had for five years and I still wear them and they, like, have not changed at all. Like they're still in amazing condition, whereas, like, you know, maybe more low quality sports bras that I've bought. In the past are literally in the trash now because. You know the fabric started to rip or they got stained from my sweat, blah blah blah blah. The only, you know, active wear that's lasted me. Through the test of time has been. Lululemon. In Nike, I would say. Like those two brands, all of my activewear from there have lasted me forever, and I do think that it's worth the money, but at the same time. If you're like, sorry, ***** I don't wanna drop. You know, like a quick 50 on a sports bra? Like, shut the **** **. I also don't blame you. And in that case, like, it might not be worth it for you if you're like, I'm not feeling that you can find great active wear for cheaper. But for somebody who's like, I want a good pair of leggings? I'm in the mood to kind of splurge a little bit. I do think it's worth it because they do last a really long time, but I also don't think it's like a necessity, you know what I'm saying? Next, somebody said. Are Doc Martens worth it? Yes, Doc Martens are worth it. They last forever and they just get better over time. Like, the more I wear my dog Martins, the more comfortable they get and the more worn in and you know. Cool looking they get they're they're an amazing purchase and. They truly do last forever. I hear stories all the time of people being like, yeah, I've had the same Doc Martens for 10 years, you know? And it's true, like they're built to ******* last and there are great staple shoe. They go with everything. I definitely think that they're worth it. Because they're truly something that will last you a long time, and I think that that's a reoccurring theme here, like things that will last you a long time and things that you're going to get a lot of use out of truly. Are a good investment, you know what I mean. Like when it comes to spending money. My kind of a. Approach. Is that is simply that like, am I going to use this a lot and is this going to last me a long time if the answer is yes? Then you know. That's something that. I feel like is a good. Place to put my money in, you know, but if it's something that like. I'm not going to get a lot of use out of or. It's something that I don't think is going to last me very long. Because I'm either going to get sick of it or it's gonna break or whatever, you know, then I'm not gonna buy it. Like, let's say, a good example would be like. This is not something I don't give a **** about cars, so this is not an example that like relates to me, but like, OK. A good example of like a purchase that I would not make is like buying a really expensive old car. OK, yes, it might look cool, and yes, it might be great to take selfies in front of. And yes, it might be fun to drive around, but you're gonna have to ******* maintain that thing. And unless you're willing to do that, and unless that's something that you're passionate about, like. I don't think that that's necessarily a good purchase because. It's not going to last you forever, you know? Whereas. Spending that same amount of money on, you know, maybe a newer car that has great reviews and is known for lasting a really long time is a better use of your money because. But then again, some people might look at like old vintage cars as like an investment because you can resell them. So that's kind of complicated, but you kind of get the point here. Somebody said what is your favorite brand of socks? I love the plain white socks from Hanes that you can buy on Amazon. They are literally the most boring, basic, obvious socks on the planet, but I just think that there are. Great. Like they're just, they do the ******* job. Like, I don't feel the need to buy some sort of fancy socks, you know what I mean? And they're soft and comfortable and. Like there's zero. I don't have a complaint. And they're like, literally like 5 bucks. For a pack, so why not? Somebody said, do you think that restaurant food is worth it? I think that when it comes to eating out and eating at restaurants, I think that it's worth it when you're getting an experience out of it. And. You know, you get to spend time with family or friends or people that you love, whatever, and you get an experience out of it. In that case, I think it's worth it. But. If you're, you know, like, for me, I'll get I'll use me as an example of when it's not worth it. I used to postmate almost every meal because I was too lazy to cook. Did I have time to cook? Absolutely I did. I had more than enough time to cook, but I was just ordering from restaurants on Postmates because I was like, I am lazy and this is easy and fun. I don't think that that's worth it. Because I had time. To cook, so there's no excuse. And. It was definitely more expensive than it needed to be, you know. And I wasn't getting like an experience out of it. I wasn't eating at the restaurant and experiencing the ambiance and spending time with people. And because of that, I don't think that it was worth it. But if you're going to a restaurant for the experience, then I would say yes, because I think that eating out is something that is truly so enjoyable whether you're at a ******* you know? Pizza spot or you're out of five star restaurant? It doesn't matter. Eating at a restaurant. Is a very enjoyable experience and it's something that personally like. I really look forward to and I appreciate. Especially now that I cook for myself 90% of the time, like when I eat out, I really genuinely enjoy it and. Because I don't eat out a lot anymore, you know, when I do it is so worth it and it is so enjoyable and so. I do think it's worth it, as long as you know you don't overdo it for no reason like I used to. Somebody said, do you think air fryers are worth the money? I feel like you could just put everything in the oven. And there's nothing that special about an air fryer. I agree, OK, this is about to, like, really hurt some feelings here, because I know a lot of people are obsessed with the air fryer. Don't get me wrong, I think that they're fun and. They work really well, you know, but I also agree, like you can genuinely put the exact same things in the oven and get a very similar result and because of that. I don't necessarily think an air fryer is worth it. But. That's not to say that like if it if you live in OK, let's say for example if you live in a dorm room and you don't have access to an oven in air fryer is so worth it. But like for somebody who has an oven. I don't think it's as worth it because like, I have an air fryer. And I don't use it. Because I just used the oven. But also my air fryer might just not be that great so I don't know that that could be cause like my air fryer is in air fryer and a toaster oven combined and I think that that makes it not work as well. So that could be the problem but I just. I just don't know. I just don't think it's worth it. But then again, like to all my air fryer stands out there, like, do not come for me. I think that it's a really fun kitchen gadget, but I'm just saying, like, I don't think it's a life or death thing. Like, I think you can make delicious equally as great recipes in the oven. That's all I'm saying. Somebody said do you think skims are worth it? If you don't know what skims are, they are. Underwear bras. Shapewear blah, blah blah. By Miss Kim Kardashian. It's her brand. And I'm going to be honest, they're the only bras that I wear and they are the only underwear that I wear. I am not kidding. I OK. I wasn't skeptical at first, but like, you never know. You know when. Like when a new brand comes out. There's always going to be some skepticism. And so, you know, when skims came out, I was like. OK, this is interesting. You know, whatever, like. I'm curious but. I'm not gonna buy anything. I'm just gonna watch from afar. And then they built out their product line and started doing more bras and more underwear and more, you know, loungewear and stuff like that. And so I was like, OK, you know what? I'm gonna give this a try, and it's absolutely the best. I'm obsessed. Like, I I'm. I didn't expect it, like I didn't expect to like love it so much. But it's genuinely the only bras and the only underwear I wear. And the reason for that is that. It's genuinely the most comfortable. It's super lightweight and thin. I hate thick. Bras and underwear hate. Skims is like soft, comfortable, breathable. I love it. Like people can say what they want. I don't care. The product speaks for itself. I am obsessed. It's also super flattering, like I just love it. And I did not expect to love it this much either, because. I just didn't like, I didn't think I was going to love it, but I really love it and I think it's it's genuinely some of the best. Underwear or type product out there? Truly. Also, none of this is ******* sponsored, by the way. So, like, don't think that I'm like, being paid to say this ****. This is all coming from the heart. I love skims. Listen. I love all of this stuff. And I'm sharing it because I love it. Somebody said. Are expensive sunglasses worth the price? OK. Yes and no and I'll explain. If you wear sunglasses a lot, like on a day-to-day basis. I would say investing in a nice pair. Just one. Is a good idea. Now. The reason for that is because. Nice sunglasses and high quality sunglasses. Spend more time, you know, making sure that the quality of the lenses. Is. Safe and up to par and if you're buying super cheap sunglasses. That's not always the case, and the purpose of sunglasses is to #1 protect your eyes. There's no #2. That's the whole point, is to protect your eyes, and so if you're wearing sunglasses a lot. And you need them often. Having a nice pair. Is definitely not a bad idea because. Buying from a nicer brand will ensure that like. You have sunglasses that are properly protecting your eyes, but that also. Have a. Good quality lens that isn't warped because I've bought cheap sunglasses in the past that have had like warped ****** ** lenses, right? That. Have like given me headaches and that's a bummer, so you don't want to be messing around with that. But also I don't think you need to buy like the most expensive sunglasses like. You can buy a really nice, quality pair of sunglasses for like 3040 bucks. Better. Perfectly safe for your eyes. Protect your eyes and have. Precise lenses that won't give you migraines and like you can be totally good. I don't think you need to spend like ******* $200.00 on a pair of sunglasses by any means. But if you want to. And you're going to wear them every single day? I don't necessarily think that that's a bad thing. But I would say that if you're buying like a pair of sunglasses that are more expensive. You know, buy a pair that's super versatile. That'll match. Every outfit, you know what I'm saying? Whether that's like a solid brown pair or like a solid black pair, something that you can just wear with everything. Because you know the last thing you want to run into is like. Buying a pair of expensive sunglasses that only match like. A few things in your closet, you know that would be a catastrophe. So I would say if you are going to spend a little bit of extra money on glasses, get a super versatile pair. And then when it comes to more fun, funky glasses, that's when you buy the cheap ones. And then you can just like throw them on with an outfit as like a crazy accessory. And it's fun. But you also didn't spend a lot of money on them and it doesn't matter. You can lose them, you can break them, whatever, and it doesn't matter. But you having a staple pair is not a bad idea. Somebody said, what's your go to razor? I use Billy razors. They're like a subscription. New razor blades show up to my house every month or so. It's incredible. It's pretty affordable. And the razors are great and that's what I use. Somebody said what is the thing that you regret buying the most? Oh, I'll ******* tell you. And it's embarrassing too. When I was like, yeah, 1617. I don't know. I bought Gucci slides. They were bright pink and they're not ugly. They are kind of ugly. But they just weren't me. They weren't me. OK. Like? They just they had this big logo on them in like. They just weren't me and I bought them, you know, kind of because I was trying to fit into the whole LA thing. And I didn't buy them because I genuinely liked them and, like, I kind of felt like. I needed to have these types of things to fit into LA. Luckily I got over that phase quickly before it turned to catastrophic cause. Let me tell you, when you first moved to LA, everybody is all dripped out and like, ******* logo mania **** you know, like they have like. All their Gucci belts and. Louis Vuitton belts and like. ******* Balenciaga. Big chunky shoes that like are known, you know what I mean? Like, everybody has the like status symbol, super obvious designer pieces, and I felt like I needed to like, fit in there, right? So I bought those Gucci slides and tried to fit in and I quickly realized that that made me feel like **** and it did not align with me or my morals whatsoever, and so that phase quickly stopped. It actually stopped like before it begun. Almost. I guess it didn't, because I did buy the ******* stupid slides, but I literally wore them once. And it made me feel icky to wear them. I was like, I don't like this feeling like this is not me. Like it just felt wrong. That's not to say that there aren't designery type of things that I don't. Love and cherish and like, wear and enjoy because they're definitely are but. They're pieces or products that. I love because of what they are and not because of what brand they are, if that makes sense. You know what I'm saying? Like. That's the difference, whereas I bought those stupid Gucci slides because. They were Gucci slides. Not because I actually genuinely really liked them. You know what I mean? And listen, I was impressionable and young. I don't. I'm not. Trying to hate on myself here like I was being an idiot. OK, I guess I am hating on myself a little bit, but that's fine. I think I deserve it. But yeah, that's something I regret. I just think that was stupid and, like, they didn't even, you know, get properly used and. It's embarrassing, but I'm being honest. Somebody said. Do you think it's worth? Spending almost $100 or more on a good pair of jeans. Yes, and I think it's the same thing as Doc Martens. A really nice, really good quality. Pair of jeans. Levis is a great example. We'll literally last you forever. But I will say that. You can thrift incredible denim, that is. Going to last you forever as well for much cheaper. The only problem is that it's a little bit more difficult to find your perfect size. And because of that, I would say that sometimes it makes more sense to just go and buy a new pair because jeans are so hard, you know, like it's so hard to find a good pair of jeans that fit perfectly. So I would say spending a good amount of money on a. Neutral pair of jeans that you can wear over and over and over again. With everything is not a bad investment, but I would say when it comes to buying. A pair of jeans like that, you know, go with like a neutral wash, like, go with like a neutral denim. Minimal rips if not none. And. Make it a pair that like fits you perfectly, that you know that you're going to wear. For the next five years, because a good pair of denim will last you that long, if not even more. Somebody said what are your favorite blankets? All of yours looks so comfortable. I love the fuzzy blankets from Urban Outfitters. I have literally 10 of them. And. I need to buy new ones because mine are actually disgusting, but I'm not going to lie, they're the softest and best blankets out there. Target. Makes similar ones too that are really soft and fluffy. Umm. My favorite blankets are just any kind of fluffy blanket. The only problem is that they don't last. Super long because after you washed them a few times like the fuzzy gets less, gets kind of less fuzzy. But they, I mean, I've had the same ones for probably a year and a half, two years now. And they're just now coming to their point of needing a replacement, so I would say. They're worth the money and they're really great. Somebody said, do you think it's wrong to make fake clothes, for example a piece of merch? A shirt with a cool design, jeans with something on it, etc. Just for yourself because the real thing is too expensive, but you'd like to have it. I don't see anything wrong with that. I think that's completely fine. If you. Want something? But you don't want to go out and buy it and you think that you could make it yourself. I honestly think that that's even better, because, you know, that's not necessarily like adding to. You know, the massive overconsumption issue that we have. Going on in the world, you know if you can turn your old clothes. Into something new inspired by a piece that you want to buy that's like incredible. I see nothing wrong with that. Somebody said what's your favorite brand of sweatpants? Right now, my favorite brand of sweatpants is Los Angeles apparel. Somebody said, do you have a favorite brand of vegan cheese? Yes, I really love the follow your heart brand. And I also love the meganos me Yogos Miyako's brand. They do a great job too. Last but not least, somebody said if you could only use one brand of makeup for the rest of your life, what would it be? It's tied for me between Charlotte Tilbury. And cosus. Both of them make incredible makeup that agrees with my skin. And doesn't make my skin dried out and like sad. So I would probably just say those two brands. And on that note, I'm ending this episode because why the **** is it so long? Holy ****. This is like my longest episode in forever. Umm. Well, I hope that you guys enjoyed that and.
