and then…the packing.

And now…the worst part about going on vacation: deciding what to pack. As I may have mentioned a time or two, I have a fairly extensive (not necessarily exPENsive) wardrobe. Which makes packing for a personal trip…complicated. It’s times like these I imagine myself having conversations with my clothes. Really. “Beautiful black ripped jeans, I

totally miscellaneous update (no but really)

You might be wondering what I’ve been up to the last couple days. You might be imagining all the amazing things I’ve been doing or exotic locations I’ve been visiting. You might be thinking that I’ve been spending my days shopping, getting suntans and pedicures, and in general living the life of luxury. Well, you’d

skirts and tank tops and shoes…oh my!

As you may have already guessed, I have an inordinate amount of clothes. Like, a lot. I mean as in, I have a closet full, plus a 5-drawer chest, plus five of eight under-bed drawers full. Of clothes.

TGIF (vol. 1): a body for every body? except mine. and those of most women i know.

it’s not THAT bad. right? RIGHT?

I’m pretty sure that trying on swimwear is God’s lingering punishment against women for the sins of Eve way back at the beginning of the world. Seriously. The day before I left for Vegas, I found myself without a key piece of vacation wear: a swimsuit. So I (reluctantly) headed to my local department store to

train wrecks in the grocery line

As I was in the grocery line yesterday morning, after having obtained my daily Starbucks (or as some would say, Suxbux) coffee, the computer systems went down. While this fact is not immediately pertinent to today’s topic, it did afford me some extra time standing idle that I put to good use perusing the wide

are you human-shaped?

I don’t remember where I got this, but I found it in an email I had sent to some girlfriends a while back. I had to write about it because: it’s just THAT AWESOME. As women, it’s so easy to look at ourselves and see only the bad things. We see that our hips are
