I recently had the opportunity to hear Judge Judy speak at a women’s event. I admit, I don’t watch The Judge Judy show which has been on air for 20 years, but I heard she is quite the character and a dynamic speaker, so I was eager to go. She did not disappoint. I left […]

My favorite TV show ended…hold me. I fall into a funk when my favorite shows go on hiatus. Yes, when that season ends I get down. Really down. Down like the time my BFF left the entire summer for sleep-a-way camp, and I was stuck in summer school doing Folk Dancing. It was a heck […]

I spent the early morning unsubscribing from email alerts from stores I don’t even remember subscribing to and turning off email alerts from a social media platform I rarely visit (*cough* Google+). I’m tired of the noise. I’m tired of my inbox overflowing with stuff I don’t want to see and probably never will. I’m […]

I seem to be on a holiday-decoration-pillow shopping spree. Seeking comfort and expression wherever I go, I guess. Perhaps, I just need a nap. Posting everyday for a month during #NaBloPoMo will do that to you! Anyway, this pretty much says it all. The best part? It’s sparkly.     Tweet Subscribe to Blog Via […]

Like a lot people at the end of every year, I make a list of New Year’s Resolutions. This is something I look forward to every year and usually with great enthusiasm. Usually, this involves a lot of cutting and pasting from the previous year: Talk on the phone instead of text, read more, workout […]

(I thought I would be at least a few weeks into the 30-day writing challenge before I started discussing bras, but it’s Day 3. It can only go down from here.) Apparently, I’m wearing the wrong size bra. And, to my chagrin, have been for years. This little nugget came to me while in the […]
