My SO and I are talking about getting engaged, and how we have 0 desire to spend upwards of $50k on a wedding (would rather have that money for house, future kids, etc). My mom takes such offense to this because she feels like we’ve been so supported by others (we have!), and that these people would want to share in this time (extended family, framily, etc). If money was no object, I’d agree but my dad and her will not be footing the bill (may gift $10-20k). Continued in comments…
I’m shopping for crop tops for my summer wardrobe. Looking for quality (hopefully will last more than a few washes). Any brand recommendations? 💃🏻
My male coworker aged 55 years, made a comment to Parter that because i am going to on leave for a week and dealing with a personal situation my heart is not at work. I called him to clarify; asked him what work impacts has he noticed and he said none. Nothing performance related and it was just his read of the situation. I was hurt, felt judged and victim of bias behavior. Should i just let it go OR should i take any action? Idk what is the best way to deal with this.
IKIGAI: What’s your reason for being?
I went to HR today to finally complain about my bully. I didn't realize what he has been doing had been bullying, sexist shit: threatening me with performance appraisals (he's the same level as me but is the "pillar lead" of our group) and replacement. And why? Bcos I push back and tell him no when I don't have time for his random tasks. Ironically, I'm loved by everyone else and get stellar reviews from my project team but it's just him who gives me a hard time. Let's see what HR does now.
Anyone have a recommendation for swimsuits for someone with a larger chest. I’m really small elsewhere and am a size 2 or 26, but I’m a 34DDD. I would really like a one piece but the smaller sizes don’t work for my boobs and the larger sizes are too big elsewhere!

Anyone lose friends during covid? Have had a childhood friend for 14 years. She’s one of those people that always sticks around, even if friends aren’t the best.

Does anyone have recommendations for specific products for an ergonomic desk setup? I currently use a small desk, my laptop, and a travel monitor.

Occasionally, the topic of domestic violence or intimate partner violence pops up in this bowl. I wanted to share a TED talk I came across that helped contextualize what I and others have experienced.

It could help save a life and create a safer space for someone to talk about what they are experiencing.
Best black work pumps that are actually comfortable? $0-$700 is budget and not a super low heel but nothing too high or crazy either
Any words of wisdom for how to tread here...
Need opinions on this. I’m invited to a bachelorette party in the spring. We’re taking a cruise. The maid of honor is now insistent that everyone pay extra so we can pay for the brides whole trip. It’s not a ton of money across everyone but the principle feels off. In a not cruise bachelorette I wouldn’t hesitate to pay for the bride but paying for a multi day cruise just isn’t rubbing me the right way. This girl is also having a destination wedding. Am I overreacting feeling weird about this?

Hi ladies. Really need your advice. Have you been with someone who brought out the worst in you? I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years and it has always been a toxic and unhealthy relationship. He’s hyper critical and I’m overly sensitive so it’s a horrible mix. Some of our recent fights have been extremely heated - with me throwing things and slapping his arm in frustration. He has never hurt me physically but tells me I’m crazy and to calm down. Which drives me even further over the edge

I like The Defined Dish, Half Baked Harvest, and Ina Garten cookbooks. Also have used quite a few Skinnytaste recipes over the years - her food is usually healthy and easy to make.
Mark Bittman, How to Cook Everything (or really any of his cookbooks!)
I don’t use them often but the recipes in these never miss for me.
My go-tos are:
* Well Plated by Erin Clarke
* The Dinner Plan by Kathy Brennan & Caroline Campion
* Keepers, also by Brennan & Campion
* Various Cooking Light cookbooks (eg “The All-New Complete Cooking Light”)
* Various Southern Living cookbooks (they have annual ones as well as best-of ones like “The All-New Ultimate Southern Living”) - this is maybe not as healthy, but there are TONS of recipes
