Mo’ Beau

Foster kitty Beau is still with me, and it's getting serious. He's such a fun little guy--if I lay down, he'll curl up on my chest and fall asleep with his head on my shoulder like a baby. If I close the door to the bathroom or bedroom, a small furry paw inevitably appears under the door (this is extremely amusing for reasons I can't explain). If anything even remotely resembling a string moves just

Dear Santa

I figured I'd better let everyone know what I want, just in case y'all have extra money lying around. Because, you know, so many people do these days. 1. Alexis Bittar arrow earrings I love the tough-glam vibe these give off. 2. Crush It by Gary Vaynerchuk and Art Direction & Editorial Design by Abrams Studio Motivate and create, baby! 3. Subscription to Lynda.com There's so much out there to learn, and I've found the video tutorials here

The Big Switch

My apologies, y'all. Since the Maintenance Mode plugin refuses to work properly no matter how many times I un-and re-install it, you are going to be subjected to all of the ugly behind-the-scenes messiness this blog redesign entails. Just FYI, it will probably take a while since I'm working on the next issue of Style Sample magazine now. To make up for it, here's some better stuff to read/look at: I can't get enough of the gorgeously

Foster Roster

So, I finally caved. After months (okay, month) of missing my beloved kitty Cortez, I decided to be a foster mom to a kitty-in-need for the local Pet Alliance. His name is Beauregard Aloysius, Beau for short (see also: Beau-bear, Beau-bunny, Baby B, Wheezy Beau, and a jillion other unnecessary cutesy-poo nicknames) and as his name suggests, he is a southern gentleman. He was sick as a dog (ha!) due to an upper respiratory infection when I

Like grown folks

These old school Liz Claiborne trousers are so Miss Denecke (my second grade teacher), whose life goals must have included looking like an extra from the set of "Knots Landing" and teaching us to properly write cursive. I'm wearing teacher pants and a blazer. It's (almost) like I'm a grown up! Speaking of growing up*, have you ever thought about what it would be like to spend your childhood as an unpaid laborer or sex slave?

Gold Rush

Thrift Gift 2: Back to Goodwill

I didn't mean to go thrifting again, but see, what had happened was, I had some more stuff to drop off at Goodwill. That's a good thing, because it means I'm purging items that I no longer need and supporting a good cause, right? I'd never been to this particular location before, so I figured I'd better check it out to make sure my donated goods were going to be put to good use. Plus, I

"I totally paused!"

Clueless was, and still is to this day, one of my favorite teen movies. Really, it ranks right up there with Girls Just Want to Have Fun! and Fast Times at Ridgemont High (also directed by Amy Heckerling). Sadly--or gladly--I have all of the above on DVD. I watched Clueless pretty much non-stop after my uncle was kind enough to tape it (err
