If you ever doubt you have enough stamina to make it to the gym take a peak at this video and I challenge you not to be inspired. Bandit is small but fierce. I am not sure I have ever so doggedly (pun intended) committed to something. My favorite moment is when he has just… read more

WTF?

Found this little critter crawling on my floor recently. (So very creepy and crawly)   I recognized him as the living kin of the dead critters I found amongst my cashmere sweaters last fall when I took them out to wear. 15 of said sweaters (both mine and John’s) had massive holes in them. WTF… read more

Amortizing Costs…

I have a fabulous neighbor. She is that woman who seems like she puts no effort into getting ready and always looks fresh-faced, put-together, and glowing. She’s the kind of mother who puts her family first and doesn’t splurge on goodies for herself. How she does it? I do not know… We recently crossed paths… read more

Pain in my neck!

images-2

I know where you thought this was going. I was being literal people. This post truly is about the constant low-grade pain in my neck. (The area that hurts!) For months now I have been complaining, wincing, massaging, and popping my neck – all in an effort to relieve the pain that often wakes me… read more

Time for a quickie!

There is nothing I like more than quickly throwing together a meal. And when I say “throwing” I literally mean taking all sorts of random things that are in the kitchen and just throwing them together! What do shrimp, peppers, onions, tomato sauce, kale, pine nuts, goat cheese, and raisins have in common? They were… read more

White Out!

It’s cold outside. Bone chilling, teeth chattering, finger freezing cold. It’s hard to look chic when covered in layers. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Why not let the weather inspire you? Think white, dress white, and we might even get more snow… (Classic Tretorn with leather laces from Tomboy Style) (Emily Weiss of… read more

I love any and every opportunity to give people my opinion. Just ask those who know me well. I am a know-it-all. That being said, send me questions! I am DYING to give you answers. No need to give your name, I appreciate anonymity. I do! Not for myself, but for others. If I don’t have a… read more

The Makeover

DSC_0011

I needed a chair. My first thought was not “Where could I buy a chair?” but rather “Where can I get a free chair that will end up looking exactly like the one I want?” I know, I know. At this point you are asking “Why does this girl make her life so much more… read more

The Sentimentalist Soundtrack

Unknown

I love music. It makes me feel. Literally I can listen to particular songs and be brought to tears. And there are also those full-of-life records that just make you want to get up and dance. Admit it. You wish you had your own soundtrack every day. Me too. Today’s playlist? Maybe you wake up… read more
