I'm one of those people who splurges on nice clothes, wears them once to events, and then keeps them forever despite no longer wanting or having a use for them and can't bare to trash them. What's a girl to do with this conundrum? Luckily, Poshmark has the solution. It's like Etsy (minus the crafts aspect), but for clothes and accessories. It's so easy to use: You list your item and your price, someone buys it (Poshmark handles all the money to keep buyer and seller safe), Poshmark emails you a shipping label, you slap the label on a box and drop it off at the Post Office. Easy peasy! I haven't purchased anything from anyone yet (I'm in purge-only mode), but it seems to be a great place for deals!
- Crazy easy to use, you get to clean out your closet and make money
- Great way to get rid of gifts from exes
- Everything works from apps on iPhones and iPads (Android coming soon, some aspects work on their website)
- Poshmark takes 20% of your profit
- Some people want to haggle/trade/take transactions off-site which is annoying
- You have to be careful when picking sellers to buy from

The Cornetto Trilogy
I'll spare you the explanation of why these three movies are called the Cornetto Trilogy and skip to the lovin'. I love everything about these movies: the casts, the director, the plots, scripts, soundtracks... it's all brilliant. Be on the lookout for my favorite, a buddy cop/mystery/action/comedy called Hot Fuzz, on TV as promotion for The World's End.
8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown
It's often a silly dream that people have where their favorite shoes crossover (SuperWhoLock anyone?), but Channel 4 in the UK made it happen for real. 8 Out of 10 Cats is a comedy panel show (hilarious) and Countdown is a number and word puzzle-like game (a fun challenge). In a sweeps-style event, these shows combined as a one-off kind of deal with comedians and celebs playing the game usually reserved for regular folks, but it was so successful that they got a whole season of shows. It's wickedly funny and it's fun to play along with. Check it out here if you're a UK resident or if you're in the US you can find it on other sites that people post videos *ahem* see where I'm going with this?
