This is My Life

A couple years ago someone made the comment about a fashion blogger they read regularly- “why does she post about her kids? If I wanted to know about toddlers I’d read mom blogs, which I’m totally not interested in. I just want to know how to tie a scarf 27 ways or what flats are …

peacock progress- burning man preparations!

Only 4 days to go until Dave and I arrive at the Burning Man festival.  Costume prep has been going well so I thought I’d post a few pics of our progress. I would be considered remedial at best when it comes to sewing. As I’ve been working on my costumes I sorely wished that …

A few weeks ago I wrote about the denim leggings phenomenon a.k.a “jeggings” as in jean-leggings. I was kind of weirded out and skeptical about them. Then I became obsessed with seeing what the hype was. Apparently others are hyped up about jeggings too because I called four Targets in my area to score this …

I’m all for going green, but this is getting ridiculous

It’s inescapable, going green is what’s hot.  Except that I’ve been green for a long time.  Maybe it had something to do with growing up in the U.P. that I developed an affinity for the lush forests and pine needle strewn ground, but I have always loved the color green.
