Listening: To the sounds of Skype and the birds outside my window; now that my friend suggested Neil Diamond in the Peaceful Posse Facebook group (of all things), I may have to give that a listen Wearing: I dunno how to say this, but I’m still in my pajamas. Not only am I in my [...]

birthday giveaway

It’s hard to believe, but today I’m officially 38 years of age (Nope! Not ready). Despite my shortcomings, I’m proud of the woman I’ve become and the things I’ve learned on this journey, but of course there are many things on my bucket list I’ve yet to cross off. Here are just a few off [...]

Good morning, and happy weekend, dollfaces! Hope everyone had a nice week—I’m ready to see it end, personally… it wasn’t bad by any means, just long and I’m sleepy and stabby today.

I’d ask those two gentlemen at the gym to politely direct their attention away from the girl who was just trying to get in a few pushups after work I’d tell the blast from the past who randomly Facebook messaged me that NO, I don’t want to be a member of her face cream sales [...]

Part 3: A Cancun love story

– Posted in: featured

You may remember the beautiful words an anonymous reader left here in parts one and two about his trip to Cancun and the woman who stole his heart. Today, the story continues... and sadly ends.

Those pretty sparkly things are sprinkled all over Instagram and Etsy and they are the easiest way to take an outfit to the next [...]

Bring out your inner diva with Divatress

– Posted in: featured

This post is sponsored by Divatress. All opinions are entirely my own.  As long as I can remember, I’ve been plagued with unruly and unmanageable curls. Sure, some days are better than others, and there are times when my hair cooperates, but never when I really need it to (i.e., for fancy functions, on a night out [...]

I dunno about you, but this was a really beautiful and transformative week. The universe continues to impress me by sending signs to let me know I am on a good path in life. On St. Patrick's Day especially, I feel incredibly lucky to have the best family in the world, incredible friends, a job [...]
