Bachelor Fashion – Rachel’s Final Rose Ceremony Dress

Yes, I've been the WORST at this season of The Bachelor. Aside from the awesome Official* Jeans & a Tank Top Bachelor Bracket, I've been almost non-existent. My apologies. But I just fell in LOVE with Rachel's final Rose Ceremony dress. Flattering in cut, style and color. Beautiful and bold, yet somehow not overdone, jeweled collar, ...

Life after The Bachelor – basics on a budget

Yesterday was strange. Having spent every Tuesday for the last two and a half months drafting Bachelor posts, the first Tuesday without any Bachelor antics (and fashion) to write about seemed oddly empty. If you followed those posts, you likely noticed a steady increase of links for clothing worn on the show. That change seemed popular and is something ...

While I did make up both the word and definition above, I'm confident they will be added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary in the very near future. This confidence stems not from the fact that I (and anyone who has ever known me) would readily agree it's the perfect word to describe me, but more from knowing I'm not the only one. The love ...

Red Carpet Review – 2016 Oscar Awards

The 2016 Oscar Awards, as a television event, underwhelmed. Between the uncomfortable tension of the (legitimate) question of racial disparity and the clumsiness of an overworked production (unnecessary props and nauseating camera pans), the three hours (and counting) would likely have been better spent in some other way. As usual, I'll take the red carpet arrivals over the ...

Bachelor Ben H: Episode 5 Recap

Although it shouldn't cause an adverse reaction on the recap, I feel it's important to note that my Bachelor viewing and recapping conditions this week have been significantly altered. For one thing, I watched alone. My usual crew attempted to keep up the witty banter on Twitter. While it was live, it wasn't as live ...

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 ...

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 ...

Fear, florals and a Back to the Future Fail – Friday Link-Ups

Catching up on all my TV shows after vacation has been more difficult than I'd anticipated. In order to ensure some productivity, I've turned these missed shows into rewards for accomplishing things. The reward for this post? Project Runway. So, without further ado, join me and my favorite Friday link-ups - Oh, Hey Friday, High Five for ...
