Girly girl skin care tips

#1: under the skin zits

Lavendar Essential Oil! Apply directly from the bottle the moment you notice, and they barely develop.

(works like a charm! I am forever grateful to my friend who passed along the news)

#2: dreamy bath

Pretty much any bath product from LUSH. Recently I used this... I really liked it, but then I'm a sucker for citrus. If you go the bath bomb route, beware of the term "glitter" anywhere in the description. Yeah... I left a trail everywhere I went.

#3: smell like a baby (you know what I mean)

Again... LUSH. Another friend opened my eyes to dusting powders...

We all love this one: Silky Underwear

Looky looky what I made! It's for a co-worker's baby to be, and it's one of the patterns from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation. This was the "baby's first tattoo" cardigan, but since I am still fairly new to intarsia, I opted to leave the decals and instead make a more plain jane cardigan. Still... I think it turned out pretty cute! I love making things for people, it's so much fun.

Here are a few shots.... I'm quite proud! And look... snaps!

These boots aren't make for walking

A letter to my fellow ladies,

Why is boot shopping so hard? Why are they always sold out of the style that make your heart a flutter? Why do sales clerks make you feel like a twat for not being used to the "feeling" of heels?
I'm sorry, but if the arch of your foot isn't hitting the base of the boot.. it's not because you are used to the "feeling" of flats, it's because the shoe doesn't fit. If the shoe doesn't fit, don't wear it.

In the beginning....

...there was um... er... like... stuff.

First post at my 3rd or 4th of 5th... (who's keeping count anyway) attempt at this thing we call a "blog".

I won't bore you with the little things (like how awesome I am, or smart, funny, and incredibly beautiful, and how if you met me you would want to be me...).

Let's just start with the important stuff.

Take a look at these jeans! Who came up with this idea? Nothing against the worn in look, but you have to admit, this is a bit silly. What's next? Jeans that look like and feel as if you shrank them in the wash? riiiiiight.

On a more personal note, what's my new year's resolution? Learn how to crochet. (seriously)
