Listen Up: A Mixed Bag of Things We Can’t Put in 10 Things

Listen Up BY jahleel shaheed 06/25/2018


Claire and Erica are diving right in this week with the topic of showering at night. Is it worth the effort, really? That’s just the first of many groundbreaking topics covered this week, including crosswords and even more alternative mylks.

P.S. Speaking of showers, it’s all about Shhhowercap showercaps, which look cute, will last forever, and are currently 10% of with the code AFEWTHINGS!


The linkage…


  • Oatly is currently all the hype on social media, thanks in part to a shortage of oat milk in California. Is this shortage a social-media marketing strategy conspiracy? More about its U.S. invasion here.
  • Claire’s all about classic New York Times crossword puzzles, a brain-stimulating alternative to downing social media or the news first thing in the morning.
  • Erica’s got your CliffsNotes to the most tear-jerking, tough moments of the Being Serena HBO docuseries, and this Glamour piece has great thoughts on treating childbirth as an injury in tennis.
  • Here’s a life hack for ya: Charcoal-colored towels are great for hiding the remnants of your skincare routine. Wamsutta and Parachute both make great ones.
  • Ellentube’s quick clips are just the thing to bring a little joy to your day (pro tip: You don’t even need to turn on the sound!).
