Hey hey love mes some Saturdays!
Time for another round of Fashion and Coffee! This week I am going to be talking about Toms and Vans. Both pair of shoes are my favorite for not wearing at work. They both look amazing with any kind of bottoms but especially skinny and leggings. You can wear almost any kind of socks with them because they show them off so well. Slip on’s are my favorite for both but I also love the classic tie up Vans because they are great for a dressy casual chic look. I need to get some more of each so that I have plenty of options!
True Life : Im addicted to shoes 👟
How 3 wealthy American patriots financed a 16 million dollar loan for the War of 1812 , initiating investment banking. Then came a whistleblower…
“Parish, Girard and Astor jointly pledged to take more than ten million, but not at the 6% Gallatin (U.S. Treasury) had offered. Rather, they agreed to pay in 88.00 a share and in return to receive an annuity that would yield them 13 years of annual payments that would eventually total the full one hundred dollars per share. The pledged amounts were more than the trio’s current combined private fortunes, a considerable risk. Nonetheless, they put up 10 million dollars’ worth of the certificates apiece, and resold the rest.
The big purchasers were insurers in Philadelphia, and banks and brokers in new York, and merchants in Baltimore, who all resold the certificates in smaller batches to hundreds, perhaps thousands of individuals. A list of the occupations of some of the individuals to whom Girard’s bank sold the bonds included:
boarding school operator, clerk, conveyancer, attorney, widow, sea captain, gentleman, clergyman, bookbinder, financier, commodore, sailmaker, Navy Agent, bricklayer, stove merchant, physician, stock broker, goldsmith and jeweler, brewer, grocer, oil and colourman, shoemaker, storekeeper, iron merchant, distiller and refiner, Collector of the Port, merchant taylor, auctioneer, mahogany merchant, and flour merchant.
The historian of the Girard Bank calls what the wealthy did "the commencement of investment banking in America.” It was also a ratification of the nonwealthy’s willingness and ability to actively fund the country’s activities.
Girard, Astor, and Parish had wished to keep their involvement a secret. However, a Federalist clerk in the Treasury Department stole a document about it from Gallatin’s desk, and it was soon publicized. Girard and his bank were then attacked even more virulently by the banks in Philadelphia, and Astor and parish also came under fire. Nonetheless the deal held.
The money enabled the U.S. to keep armies in the field and ships afloat during a very difficult 1813, and the loan-purchase structure of middlemen and small-batch buyers set the pattern for absorption of further loans. Astor, Parish, and Girard continued to pitch in individually, and became public advocates for a new Bank of the United States to buy big loans at wholesale and sell them at retail.“
This feed is not working yet because apparently you can’t have two ao3 feeds on sideblogs off the same main tumblr so … yeah … I’ll figure it out when I have five minutes.
In the meantime, enjoy some J/P face.

Record is hit by accident. Henry is holding the phone while Tom picks him up from his car seat. He kicks the door shut and locks the car behind him.
“Are we getting ice cream?” Henry asks.
“Maybe after, Henry. What are you playing with?”
“I pressed the button, Daddy.”
“Hm? Be careful with that, bub,” Tom says, seeing that Henry has his- well, your- phone in his hands. “Don’t drop it. Hold onto that real tight for me, okay?” Henry nods.
“Want me to just carry you into the restaurant?” Henry nods again and Tom starts heading towards the front doors of the restaurant. “It’s really busy today.”
“Really busy,” Henry repeats.

“Mom, I’m home.” You stuck your head into Pepper’s office, only muttering an ‘oh’ once you realized she was on the phone.
“Hang on a second, Todd, hey honey, Morgan went with Happy to get cheeseburgers she should be home soon.” Pepper smiled softly at you, you smiled smally back nodding, “How about after I finished my phone call, I take you and Morgan to go see that new Pixar movie.”
You saw the way her facial expression changed when you winced at the mention of cheeseburgers, hell even food in general makes you wince, “It’s okay mom, I’ve got homework anyways, but how about you and Morgan still go.”
Olha, gente: um cover do Angra.
