The first Government Women’s Report since 1963 was released today. The report focuses on women’s issues such as health, violence, and income. One of the main findings of the 97-page report was based on income inequality.

Women earn 75% of what men earn, regardless of level of education. As a result of this, women are more likely to live in poverty than men. Read More

I love many things in life, but two of my favorites are cute things and tea, which makes Andrews and Dunham Damn Fine Tea now among my favorite favorites. Their unique blends of (delish!) tea are packaged in adorable tins with motifs like Star Wars, Chinese New Year, and mermaids! Sadly, all their teas are limited edition, but I think it would be totally awesome to build up a cute little tin collection after you've finished your teas. Read More

Clever ladies Clem, Kathleen and Eve offer cookies and other baked goods (according to their twitter, today they're making cinnamon buns) out of their second story San Francisco apartment by dangling a string out their window with a bag attached to it reading "1$ for a fresh baked cookie (pull the string if you wish to partake).  Their company is called Fat Cookies (yes!) and it is really one of the best ideas I've heard all year.

Obama’s State of the Union played on normal political cliché; “We have fought fiercely for our beliefs”, or “What comes at this moment will be determined by us” to inspire and unify the American public. Most speeches build up the audience, in this case, “the American family” and then let us in on some tragedy or fault, only to rise us up again with a new found sense of hope. We’re supposed to overcome. Barak has a lot on his plate, as do the American people. Read More
