Kicking off Cincinnati Fashion Week

Monday marked the start of the very first Cincinnati Fashion Week, a 5-day extravaganza of parties and events designed to entertain and provide me with an excuse (finally!) to break out the Giuseppes.

I've kicked myself more than once for letting the perfect whatever get away, until I realized how easy it is to stalk merchandise* online. Here's my technique: I saw a pair of sturdy-yet-cute sandals on the Urban Outfitters site a few weeks ago. I've been on the lookout for...

Free software services for productivity

I use a lot of free software as a service applications to do everything from create and manage documents, to publish Style Sample magazine. I love free stuff, so if it looks interesting and doesn't cost money, I'll try it!  Here are some of my favorites: Google Apps You can use Google Apps to create and manage documents, develop free websites, create embeddable forms, and if you own your own domain name, manage your email. So instead...
