Banana Republic 1987 Holiday Gift Workbook

When I was in elementary school, these are the clothes I imagined I’d wear to work every day.

Dollar Shave Club

I joined Dollar Shave Club the day their viral ad campaign hit Facebook. I received my first shipment about three weeks ago, but only this week started using their handle and blades.
