From My Closet – September 6th, 2013
Have I ever mentioned that I don't have much hair? Yes, well... hence: ACCESSORIES. They're for accessorizing. Do not underestimate this. It's the fastest (and often lest expensive) way to change up your look, be it with hats, belts, or bling. Or glasses. Like these semi-silly hipster … [Read more...]
From My Closet – June 12th, 2013
Lookit me, not wearing black for once! To be fair, Bedo had this blouse in black, and it was divine, but I forced myself to get this nude-pink one instead, and I do believe I'm in love. The blushy tone is good on me, and I'm really digging this shade of pink this year - feels fresh and flirty, … [Read more...]
From My Closet – May 10th, 2013
I finally flipped my closets over from cold-weather wear to HOT last weekend, since it suddenly got entirely too warm to wear anything other than shorts and flip flops.

A look inside my purse and a contest!
Have you seen inside my purse? I'm almost embarrassed to show you but my friend Chantel gave me one of those "hey, um, girlfriend, where's the kitchen sink?" looks as she laughs. But then I see hers and it's just as jammed packed! I LOVE handbags. I mean really LOVE them. My friend Tracey … [Read more...]
The Closet Shrink: Fall Overhaul
It all started one day last week, when my son asked if there were any gloves around... damn, but the mornings can be super-chilly these days! And we keep a basket on a shelf inside the coat closet, but I haven't rifled through that thing since we stopped shoving stuff in there at the end of last … [Read more...]
Cool Tech Gadgets For Families On The Go!
I'm wired. Aside from my addiction to caffeine I need to be in constant contact. I freely admit to not being the type that can wind down and get with nature. I need my music and I need my gadgets. No really. Quietness doesn't calm me down it actually does the opposite. But I know that the rest of my … [Read more...]
