When Women Go Off-Duty.

I was reading an interview of David Sedaris in the October 2013 (I know) edition of Writer’s Digest and he mentioned a conversation he had with a woman at one of his book signings: “I heard on the radio that you were going to be here. Normally I take my bra off and it’s off […]

I Love My Twenty Dollar Target Man Bag

I stumbled across this at Target a few months back and I’ve been carrying it ever since. I devote entirely too much time to finding the perfect bag. I don’t buy expensive bags or designer labels. I don’t think I’ve broken the fifty dollar mark, but I’m always on the hunt. The perfect bag for […]

Hey Sexy Lady: Hair Edition

The blog title is a play on this video: Which you have probably seen unless you’ve been living here: But I wanted to share a couple of ways that I like to style my hair. My hair is straight, but pretty thick, but I am pretty clumsy. I have never been able to blow dry […]

Hair Chalking at the Shiny Household

My daughter thought it would be fun to give hair chalking a go, so we stopped at Michael’s to pick up some chalk pastels. We found this kit for $4.99 that had plenty of vibrant colors: We also used this: And this: (Don’t worry, it wipes right off) We also used latex gloves and wore […]

Why Do Women in Real Estate Flipping Shows Wear Stupid Shoes?

In just the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen a stiletto go through a rotted floor, a platform sandal slip off in a mud puddle and a pair of leather pumps ruined my red clay. Why would anyone turn up at a construction site in frivolous shoes? They should have been wearing steel-toed work boots. […]

Seriously. If you are not familiar, Pinterest is a visually lush Internet time suck. So instead of updating my blog, I spend my days posting or “pinning” pictures of pretty clothes or purple hair or cute puppies to a virtual bulletin board. I have a variety of boards which I’ve titled things like Awesome Hair […]

Project Runway Without Tim Gunn? How Will We Make It Work?

Project Runway is back and so are some of the All Star Contestants: Austin Scarlett – Fun but crazy Kara Janx – Don’t remember Elisa Jimenez – Kind of Flaky but creative at least Rami Kashou – Love LOVE -so glad he’s back Sweet P – Yikes. Who wants to be a frumpy Mexican housewife […]

People With ADD Should Not Go to Pier One

Not that I’ve actually been diagnosed or anything, unless you include every layperson I encounter. There is WAY too much going on in Pier One to focus on any one thing. It is, however, great fodder for Awkward Photojournalism. . I went in there with high hopes and walked out with almost nothing. I did […]

A Very Shiny Project Runway Finale: Holy Surprise Ending Batman

Didn’t they tell Kimberly her bags and shoes were too clunky? Josh’s first model needs to take off the blue towel so we can see her outfit. I like Josh’s gown thing with the plastic top now that he got rid of the roller disco back view. I loved everything in Viktor’s collection. Amazing. Everything […]
