Spiralizer success – Five Friday Favorites

It occurs to me that January is half over. I'm not sure where about ten of those days went, so if you see them please send them my direction. I wouldn't mind spending some time with them. Ah, well. On to the weekend! Starting it off right, I'm checking in with my favorite Friday link-ups - Oh, Hey Friday and High ...

Maybe I’ll open an Etsy shop

I've just returned from getting a haircut. My stylist, Brittany, is fabulous. She's been with me since a very unfortunate incident approximately four years ago. Short version: my last cut before meeting Brittany ended with me in bangs. Bangs that stopped short about an inch above my eyebrows. And I had not asked for bangs. But my haircut ...

How to Halloween as an adult

How do kids Halloween? They put on costumes, ranging from store-bought printed plastic child-size garbage bags to phenomenally intricate creations labored over by intensely crafty parents. They wear these costumes, grab a hauling utensil (from more garbage bags to jack-o-lantern shaped buckets), head out and gleefully run from house to house demanding candy. Occasionally they ...

Halloween costumes over the years

So, Halloween. Halloween is my jam. Yesterday, Michael Kors tweeted a theory on why everyone loves Halloween, and he nailed it. And I do LOVE Halloween. Love it so much that this year we're celebrating 10 years of my Annual Halloween Bash! Not quite as many celebrities as Heidi's Halloween party, but I'm working on it. As usual, despite ...

Bored cats, BB cream and Bourbon & Bordeaux – Friday Link-Ups

It's been one of those weeks where everything seems to go wrong. Perhaps you noticed that my website was MIA for nearly 48 hours? That sets the stage, if you will. You can guess how the rest of my life fared.  Murphy's Law - anything that can go wrong, will. Here's hoping that Friday closes not only ...

Bachelorette Kaitlyn: Finale Recap

Although I included my Bachelorette Finale (and After the Final Rose) Recap in my Friday Favorites post (published on Sunday), it seemed like a good idea to create a dedicated Bachelorette Recap post. Also, it gives me another opportunity to advertise Bourbon & Bordeaux, and shameless self-promotion is not a problem for me right now. What is Bourbon ...

Sneezes, snacks and a BIG surprise – Friday Link-Ups

That's right, there is a BIG surprise in this post! But first, you may notice that I'm doing my Friday link-ups on a Sunday. That's because, while the majority of my waking time over the last week has been spent in front of a computer, I've been editing video instead of writing. Or rather, learning to edit video. Also, ...

What camera should this blogger use? And an excuse for a cute photo.

As the new look for Jeans and a Tank Top remains under construction, I find myself having to keep my expectations in check. While the new style will be more attractive, and more reflective of the spirit behind the blog, it's easy to get carried away and imagine the end result in exaggeration. Jeans and a Tank Top ...
