  • I Feel Pretty? Oh So Pretty?

    So, I finally got my hair cut this morning.  I’d been needing a haircut for some time.  I have incredibly thick hair, and I knew that if I was continuously putting my hair up in a bun (normally to keep what seems like tons of sweat from creating Niagara Falls on the back of my […]

  • Knock, Knock, Knockin’ on Summer’s Door

    This Monday marks Memorial Day here in the United States.  While the day itself is meant to be a somber one (as it commemorates our war dead), this particular day also represents a turning point in our cultural calendar: the unofficial start to summer (the actual summer solstice takes place about 3 weeks or so […]

Today, my […]

  • Tips & Techniques: Notions Bags (or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bag)

    Let me start by saying this: I smacked my little toe into the coffee table this morning and drew blood.  I will spare you the pictures, but I bled all around the toenail.  Surprisingly, the toenail is still intact, but there is no telling whether it will fall off.  More than anything, it stings like […]
