Ring? Word.

Word rings are seriously helping me on my journey towards enlightenment.  Ok, maybe that’s a tad too much praise to heap upon a ring, but they sure are useful as sign posts, to use along the journey.  I’ve been into the whole Zen/mindfulness thing lately, but it’s hard to remember to stay present and removed…

Fiver – what would YOU do for five bucks?

Writing is my passion.  Seriously, I can’t get enough of it.  I’d be happy if I could sit in my office, engrossed in the creative process, from dawn till dusk, but employers usually want me to perform other tedious tasks, which wither a small part of my soul. Just the other day, someone in my…

Facial Excercise – Surgery Free Anti Aging System

Aging is no fun for anyone.  We live in a society obsessed by looks, and while I definitely think that there is more to life that what you see in the mirror, I’m all for taking care of yourself and doing what you can to waltz gracefully along through the passage of time. I’m quite…

M.A.C. Tres Chic Blush Collection

I have been into cream blushes in a big way for the past year.  My skin has been quite dry so I love the dewy finish creams impart: they blend like a dream and never leave me with any kind of flakiness.  As my cream blush collection has grown, my powder blush stash dwindled, until…

Nubar – Peacock Feathers Nail Polish

I happen to personally know a Peacock.  His uncreative name is Peacock and he lives with my Grandmother (long story) overseas.  Peacock likes to preen and peer at his reflection on shiny hub cabs.  Nothing lures him in like his own attractive image.  You might find yourself equally transfixed by your fingers with this aptly…

Curly Hair Girl

I get a lot of people asking me about my hair.  A lot.  I’ve been stopped in malls and flagged down on streets.   People have even written to me desperately wanting to know what I do to my hair so they can emulate my apparent success. People are  begging for help, totally at a…

Bath and Body – Vanilla Bean Noel

  “It was the November before December and all through the house, Not a creature was slurring except for myself. As I shopped at the mall for something to review, A fragrant green bottle said “how do you do?” Thank God for the sale or else I’d be sad, I’m on a cosmetics “no buy”…

Vampire Fangs

I had a serious thing for vampire fangs back in the day.  It didn’t matter if I was costumed as a clown, superhero or  rock star; I had to accessories with a pair of plastic vampire fangs.  Halloween just wasn’t Halloween without a set of ferocious pointy teeth. Sadly, they were really gross to wear. …

Vintage Fashion

A year ago I was seduced by the notion of incorporating  choice pieces of vintage clothing into my wardrobe.   It seemed like such a chic thing to do, so I set out about the business of acquiring three vintage dresses  from various online retailers. I was not impressed when they arrived  a few weeks later….

Grey Hair

I was puzzled that she’d instantly presume a gray hair was something to be gotten rid off.    I used to wish I could have blond hair so I saw this as an opportunity to acquire lighter tresses down the road for free!   I have seen no one extol the virtues of going gray…
