Apparently, pina coladas originated in Puerto Rico (I guess that’s where rum originated from as well, but we like our drinks sin […]

Every spring brings a few bright, sunny days that cause me delusions of grandeur – like the long list of spring cleaning that includes every square inch of my home.  I usually get as far as vacuuming out my kitchen cupboards before I re-file that irritatingly detailed list into a stack of papers that will […]

Day to Night

I love a good pair of sneakers (I think I’m getting old,) as much as the next person, but let’s face it: not all tennis shoes were created equal.  A few years ago, the Mr came home with a brand new pair of the world’s ugliest shoes.  I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw them, […]

DSW #minishoelover Party

A few weeks ago we invited everyone to join us at the St. Peters DSW to celebrate that the store now sells kids shoes (yay for family shoe shopping all in one place right?!)  Meg and I worked our little rear-ends off planning all the little details (and the big ones too!) and had a […]

KCFW + Saks Off 5th

This past weekend was Kansas City Fashion Week.  I was only able to attend the Saturday afternoon and evening shows, and it was a lot packed into 10 long hours.  I met up with Meg, Sandy and Jana and hit the backstage VIP Ulta event.  It’s always fun to be backstage (I mean, who doesn’t […]

Day 21: Manicures Aren’t Just For Men

It’s fall and the humidity is finally dying down (my afro is grateful for this.)  This also means dry skin (and dry cuticles.)  I don’t have the time (and sometimes I would rather spend the money on something -anything – else.)  My manicures aren’t perfect.  On a good day, they might even pass an inspection.  […]
