Happy President's Day

Happy President's Day. I've marked the day by sending Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) an email of encouragement. Later there might be some shopping.

  1. I wish more people would take a moment to email their senators and congressmen if they don't like the way the government is handling things. I'm not going to talk politics, as I don't think a beauty blog is the appropriate platform, but I do think it's OK on this Presidents Day to remind people just how easy--and meaningful--it is to make their voice heard. We, the people, are more influential than we give ourselves credit for being.

  2. I think any place is an appropriate platform to talk about politics - we all have a lot at stake, we all owe it to ourselves to tell our stories and make our voices heard. (And I agree that Cory Booker is pretty great.)

  3. Aw, that's great. I'm jealous because Cory Booker is a really solid guy.

  4. I love that you emailed Cory Booker! I'm not even a constituent of his, but a few weeks ago I sent him a thank-you email for all he's been doing. His efforts benefit everyone.
