17 Comments 12 April 2013

I’ve had this blog for years and every month I get an itch to make it more streamlined. Thoughts of starting an editorial calendar dance in my head, but who am I kidding? My brain is about as organized as the basement of some sad sack on A&E’s Hoarders. If I was more organized, I [...]

I don’t wear pink, I’ve never gotten a manicure or pedicure, I’ve never envisioned what my wedding dress will look like and I haven’t brushed my hair regularly in three years (note- this doesn’t mean my hair is dirty, I do indeed wash my hair). However, I love the [...]

Hipster Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

2 Comments 10 February 2012

Because I used to date douchebags, our courtship was typically as long as a cat’s pregnancy and Valentine’s Day never fell within that time.

It’s that time of year. That time where we Texans contemplate if we miss summer or not. 108 degrees or 40 degrees- which would you take? Yes, Winter is finally here and I am completely not prepared. I grew up in a town that has 8 month Winters and because of that and moved far, [...]

The Hipsterfication of NPR

7 Comments 22 November 2011

source NPR’s “The Hipsterfication of America“. Dear God. What happened? I wanted to write about this last week when the article first came out but my mind was so blown, I had to spend the weekend recuperating. NPR! I love you, but did you write this back in 2008 and forget to post it until [...]

How To Stay Stylish in Clothing Melting Heat

24 Comments 23 June 2011

While cataclysm of Waterworld-esque proportions keeps happening in other parts of the country, here in Austin, Texas we’ve been as bone dry as two teenagers humping after marching band practice. It’s also been a cool 104 degrees with a steady 90% humidity AT ALL TIMES. These two facts combined together make day-to-day living extremely difficult. [...]
