Make Those Pesky Underwear Lines Go Away: Plus win a $5,000 Style Consultation with Rachel Zoe #SkimmiesPromo

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Jockey.  A $5,000 style consultation with Rachel Zoe giveaway included. In my book, the single most offensive fashion faux pas is a glaring underwear line worn under anything. Workout  clothes. White jeans. Jeans in general. Skirts. My butt can use all the help it […]

It’s Been a Fiery Week

I haven’t been able to write this week as I have been too busy taking photos of giant plumes of smoke, while saying over and over in my head, “I won’t freak out. I won’t freak out.”, and staring at a bottle of chardonnay praying for the moment I can open it and dump a […]

Not my clothes which were all purchased […]

My Husband Has Banished Me From WebMD

I do this thing where I diagnose myself with a disease about, oh, EVERY TEN MINUTES.  If I feel the slightest amount of pain in my head, I go straight to visions of me in the hospital and my family standing around my bed and saying, “We told her that cheap red wine was going […]

Taking Stock: Not Making Resolutions

I’m not making resolutions. I’ve tried it. By February, my resolutions are judging me and making me feel less than. I need my life to be more flexible. For example, resolution number one, workout every day for one month. Then I get sick or the kids are sick or my husband is having an affair […]
