Everyone needs a good standby recipe to haul out for the next work barbeque or potluck you don’t have time to attend but feel compelled to because your boss-twice-removed might be there and you need to impress him with how awesome you are (and a good cook too!) so you can leapfrog your boss who, [...]
I carry an enormous bag. It would be generous to call it a tote.
(For those of you who care about these kinds of things, this is the Joanna Color Block Leather Tote, which is now sold out at Banana Republic but will undoubtedly be back soon as it sold out within the first month. [...]
(Yes, this will be another one of my vapid posts. So sue me.)
You may have noticed that neon is a big trend this year. Neon reminds me of highlighters, which reminds me of the 48-count box of highlighters my husband bought me for Christmas one year (which was actually a very thoughtful gift because [...]
One of my favorite bloggers, who started in celebrity gossip (I know, I know…technically vapid, but whatever) but has since branched out into fashion, health and fitness, etc., has long ascribed to the theory that as you age you have to make a decision –
Face or body?

I just read Baratunde Thurston’s book “How to Be Black.” Among other things, Thurston is the Director of Digital for “The Onion”.

Okay — maybe you didn’t. I don’t really either. But I live in a major metropolitan area where I see people of different shapes and sizes all day long. I work in an industry which isn’t necessarily teeming with minorities (either by race or by gender), but at least makes an effort to understand how [...]
Dear Teenage Girl Who Walked Out in Front of Me in the Parking Lot,
I know. I’m old. I drive an SUV one step removed from a minivan. I have kid stickers on my windows. I get it; you don’t want my advice. But I’m old now, and I don’t care. You’re gonna get it [...]
I would like to preface this entire post with the side note that I object to the concept of a New Year’s Resolution. Why should I all of a sudden change my spots come January? Am I that bad the rest of the year? And if 88% of people fail, why bother? Who [...]
Today a female, child-less partner circulated an invitation to a seminar for working moms. (Ironic, no?) A group of successful working moms are going to show a slide presentation showing “how they did it”. I forwarded the e-mail to my friend, also a working mom. Her response was priceless….
I would just have one slide [...]
I was perusing the internet today and came across this photograph:
It’s in the running for the National Geographic 2011 Photo Contest.
I think the picture is pretty amazing. Apparently the mom is delivering her third child, a baby boy, and screaming “I love you, baby!” (Hence the title.) The internet is full [...]
We are --

And we drive our husbands crazy --
We can't all be trophy wives.
