How to Get a Sunkissed Glow without Sun Damage

Beauty Uncategorized

We’re grown-ass women who know better than to slather on baby oil, cover a record album with tin foil and bake in the sunshine for a deep dark tan. Hopefully we all know that though a sunkissed face looks pretty now, it will just add wrinkles and pigmentation and possibly cancer in the future. Celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, and Nicole Kidman prove that pale, sun-protected skin can be…

Green with Envy: Superstitions and Chic Dresses

How to Wear Fashion Trends shopping tips Uncategorized

I love that green has become a popular color in fashion, for a long time designers didn't use much green because of superstitions regarding it.  Some say the superstition came from Carl Scheele, a Swedish chemist who experimented with arsenic to create a shade of green (known as Scheele's Green) for wallpaper and fabric.  While the chemist knew arsenic was toxic, he figured it was harmless when used for something…

Happy Independence Day!

Uncategorized

To my American readers, happy Independence Day! Today is a day to celebrate our freedom, and I can’t think of a better way to enjoy cookouts, fireworks, and parades than with the freedom to wear whatever you want! Rock that rhinestone flag tee shirt, the shorts decorated in stars and stripes, the flag sunglasses, the red, white, and blue sequined tank.

All the Newness!

Uncategorized

Hi everyone, quick update. Saw the ortho this week, the arm is healing nicely. They x-rayed and he sees fuzziness which means bone is growing, fusing my radius back together. I go back to the doctor in two weeks and if all goes well, I may graduate to a short cast! While I'm getting better with my left hand, it's exciting to see my right fingers move and work again…

Since I Can’t Journal…

Uncategorized

Before my short term disability starts, I have some lingering work projects to tie up. I sit on the couch, legs crossed, right arm raised above my heart thanks to quilts and pillows, it’s as though my cast is The Princess and the Pea. Typos are so prevalent and painkillers coursing through my bloodstream I look back at a sentence and have no idea what I wrote and was trying…
