So ladies and gents, is it ever alright to be completely honest with someone? In my opinion there are rules. You don’t have to say everything that comes to mind. I’m frenemies with a girl who likes to hit with what I’ll call subtle barbs. Things like, “Carly asked me why you’re wearing that dress, and I just did not know what to say!” Ohhhh. Carly said it. So at this point I’m supposed to confront Carly, or ask you why you think it’s necessary for me to know something negative? Clearly this girl wants me to feel bad and has diarrhea of the mouth. Who does that???
I don’t think it’s fair to share your opinion unless you’re asked.
Here’s an example. If you’re in the fitting room with a
friend and she comes out in a dress that doesn’t flatter her, let her know.
If your pal is thinking about buying a new BMW and you had one that cost you tons in foreign parts, then feel free to share.
The trouble comes when a friend asks your opinion about politics. “I think Trump is doing a great job! Build that wall!” Do you quietly walk away or attempt to change the mind of a MAGA supporter? I’ve found that being completely honest on this topic is a good way to lose friends and family, although do you really want a Trump supporter as friend (or family member)?
Your friend just had her hair done and asks you what you think about it. Do you…tell the truth or just tell her what she wants to hear?
At the end of the day I think it’s fair to tell a friend the truth if she asks, but it’s cruel to be mean. So many people get off on being vicious. If you’re not asked, don’t tell. What’s your opinion on the topic?
Trigger warning. Gross description warning! If you call a vagina “lady parts,” then this post is not for you. Just keep it moving. A couple of weeks ago I was struck with a serious headache and stomachache. I couldn’t figure it out, but was popping Advil like a champ. I chalked it up to a […]
So. I’ve been struggling lately, and I think I’ve been in some sort of denial. I’ve been contemplating a re-branding! The issue? I love talking about fashion, recipes, wellness and family.

Years ago, my friend Cassie introduced me to QVC. I was obsessed with Dooney and Burke bags at the time, but had five little kids, I was a teacher and let’s face it, I couldn’t just run out and buy designer bags. Although I’m proud to say I’ve come a long way since my Dooney […]
Why do I Posh? I started as a buyer. I was on a mission having followed a really cool blogger, who wore a pair of Vince “Bogart” flats all over Europe. She raved so much, I HAD to find myself a pair. That was my first experience on Poshmark. After my third purchase (a pair […]
