With so much going on in the world today it is easy to feel overwhelmed with trying to keep up with the latest news story. It seems like a new story is breaking every hour and just when you get the full details on one, another catastrophe happens.
I know I often felt so left out when taking to friends and coworkers about politics and the latest controversies. And now that I’m a stay at home mom and the busiest I’ve ever been in my life, I really don’t have time to watch the news or go to all the different websites anymore. And I love my baby girl to pieces but she’s more worried about the goings on at sesame street than wall street.
That’s where The Skimm comes in! The Skimm is a daily (except on the weekends) email full of the top news stories from the day before. Marketed for women and full of cute lingo and up to date slang, it’s entertaining as well as incredibly informative.
While it’s almost impossible to find reputable, nonbiased media nowadays I feel like The Skimm comes as close to nonpartisanship as you can get. These emails are a lifesaver. I love never having to worry about “fake news” (whatever that is, rolling my eyes) again.
The Skimm makes the news fun again and offers the feeling of a tightknit community of women professionals and go-getters. They even keep you up to date with the latest celebrity gossip, so get your Kardashian fix here too.
Look, it even has Oprah’s approval. And if you’re an iPhone user, then you’re in luck. The Skimm even has an exclusive iOS app. Now, since I’m a card carrying android lover and refuse to switch to the darkside, I can’t tell you what the benefits of the app is. All I know for sure is that there is a small fee to install, but I’m so impressed by the emails I would happily sign up if it were available to me.
The Skimm even offers exclusive deals, giveaways, vacations, and birthday shoutouts! One of my favorite parts of the day is my quiet time while Madi is asleep. I put her down and get to snuggle up with a hot coffee and my Skimm email. Doesn’t get much better than that.
So, go ahead and sign up for the emails. I guarantee you’ll love it, ladies. Let me know how you like The Skimm in the comments below.
