Nuzzel Outtakes, 5/25/19



So, I have a small online merchandise shop. Sale is today only, May 26th. Use FREESHIP619 for free shipping. https://fitnessprotection.threadless.com/


****************************************************************


I read. Like, a LOT. Like, A LOT a lot. Anything that excites me, I save to my weekly Nuzzel newsletter, then agonize over which to keep and which to cut since Nuzzel only limits me to 10 articles. Just because I couldn't fit it in doesn't mean it isn't worth reading!


I've been thinking about you all week and hope you enjoy the newsletter as much as I enjoy creating it! If you want a little MOAR, the outtakes are below!

The Nike F*uckery

Nike makes incredible commercials. I love their unwavering support of my hero, Serena. But I don’t buy their products and I’m pretty sure I never will. This has been an open secret for decades. Am glad the public kinda sorta gives a poo.
