Hello darlings! I hope your weekend was fabulous. My trip to Oklahoma was absolutely perfect. I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun. I got to see my two best frans in the entire world and see a myriad of opera performances. More on that tomorrow. Today, let’s talk skin care. Good skin is the base for good makeup and though there are some amazing foundations out there, there is no replacement for beautiful skin. I am… Read more »

“All those who sign without delay- You’ll get a free tattoo. The choice is up to you!” I cannot tell you why I wake up with these things in my head. Ten bloggity points if you know that quote. And you’d better. I hope that I didn’t give any silly people out there the idea that puppies are synonymous with apologies. They’re definitely not. I wonder if PETA would object to my using them in such a way. But it… Read more »

People, people, people. I almost gave up on you today. It’s not you, it’s me. And I mean that. Someone is playing a cruel trick on me recently. And by “someone” I mean my subconscious. I’ve been dealing with the worst bout of insomnia I’ve had in years. I can barely function and I don’t know what’s bringing it about. I just hope it fixes itself tonight so that I’m well rested for my girls’ weekend road trip to see… Read more »

What’s good on TV these days? The only shows I watch “live” are Glee and American Idol. And my favorite shows are Xena, The Cosby Show, The Nanny, and The Golden Girls. So clearly I’m just up to the cutting edge of breakthrough television. Other than that, I watch varying degrees of trashy reality television. My Fair Wedding (With David Tuterra!), Keeping up with the Kardashians… come to think of it, I watch most E! reality programming, when I watch… Read more »

Hello, everyone! I hope your weekend was smashing. How do you like the new layout? It makes me think of springtime and high fashion and those are very good things in my world. I added some links to other blogs I read on the right-hand side of the page, under my Twitter updates. Check the links out if you have the time! This weekend I completely reorganized and cleaned all of my makeup supplies and as I looked at all my… Read more »

I haven’t been following Fashion Week too closely, so I thought I’d just post some of my favorite looks from my favorite designers and any stand-outs I’ve come across. I have no credentials, I’m in no way “in” the world of fashion (and, quite frankly, never wish to be) and my comments are simply my opinion. Take everything with a grain of salt. I just like pretty clothes. To save time and space, this post is going to be a… Read more »

I’m not sure why, but I’ve been experiencing something powerful these last few weeks. Maybe it’s due to writing this blog 5 days a week, maybe it’s the good Lord shining his countenance upon me, maybe it’s that chili I ate for dinner, but my creative juices, much like Miley, can’t be tamed. I guess I just have a lot of feelings. “I wish we could all get along like we used to in middle school… I wish I could… Read more »

I’m sorry my posting schedule has been so sporadic. If it’s any consolation, it’s been one of the most steady things in my life, which is simultaneously alarming in consideration of the general state of my life and exciting because it means I’m, like, totally into you, babe. And when I’m into you, I’m committed. Unless I discover through various situations that you’re a self-absorbed, conceited, and rude person who has lured me into your web under false pretenses and… Read more »

Trucco is makeup in Italian. I learned this in the fifth grade when I read the charming Bloomability by Sharon Creech. A quick Google search confirmed that I had remembered the word and translation perfectly, including that the character who translates this word is quick to comment that trucco also means “trick.” Put that in your pipe and promptly prominently display it, because I don’t condone smoking. Now if only I could remember where I put my favorite velour lounge… Read more »
