With inflation having gone up 8% (I believe) things have been more right here in Oregon.
I am thinking of asking my employer for a cost of living raise. The employer is a massive, high multi-million dollar travel nursing company. The tricky part is that they already pay above market, but it doesn’t feel that way living in a state that is already so expensive to live in (think high taxes, rent/mortgage inflation/high gas prices/groceries). Unfortunately it also costs a LOT to move elsewhere…
Is anyone here feeling the effects of inflation salary-wise? I feel bad complaining about it because I do pretty well, but I am considering travel nursing or another career move. What does everyone think?

Hi all! I currently live in LA but my wedding next year will be in my hometown of Chicago. I plan to go wedding dress shopping soon in both LA and Chicago. If I find my dream wedding dress in Chicago, I’d like to order it to be shipped to a store in LA so that I can have my fittings throughout the year without having to travel back to Chicago. However this also means I would have to fly to Chicago with my wedding dress. Has anyone been in this situation before? If so, how was the experience?

Looking to get into photography and want to splurge on my first non phone / non point and shoot camera. I’m trying to decide between the Nikon Z50 and the Canon EOS RP. I will mostly use it for landscape, and then family friends pets in casual settings. I’m hoping to find a camera I can learn on and grow into. I don’t expect lens selection to be a major factor for me as I doubt I will carry multiple lenses - probably just one at a time. Any advice?

Are silicones that bad for your hair? Thinking about getting Briogeo but since some of my other products have silicone (oils/serums), I’m not sure if it would work against the Briogeo. Don’t want to waste my money and I would like to finish my current products first!
