hands up for the weekend!

sometimes it’s the little things, y’all. today, i’m thankful for an easy Friday, with a very happy client on the other end of my only call and no unexpected work shenanigans. and now . . . omigod. it’s the weekend! what are you thankful for today? each day during this month of Thanksgiving, i hope…

Friday favorite

only one favorite this week, because the one is just perfect. this literally just made my day, y’all. i have watched it like 8 times and kind of can’t get enough. messaging and execution, completely on point. i honestly don’t think this could have been cast, scripted, shot or edited any more perfectly. bravo, Lane Bryant and Laird…

Friday favorites: back in the saddle edition

i know it’s been a long time since i’ve shown my face around here. (thanks to everyone who’s hung around!) still a bit sorting through reasons why (maybe a post for later), but long story short, not writing these little posts is not helping me answer any of the questions i have been having about what…

TBT: fashion for anarchy

i never usually post anything anywhere for Throwback Thursday. i’m usually too lazy to dig something up. or if i see something perfect, i usually forget that i found it by the time it’s Thursday again. (there’s a constant pop-pop-popping in my head as the brain cells expire, these days.) but, when this came across…

Friday favorites: best of 2015

happy 2016, y’all!! i’m tired. and not just because i stayed up too late on New Year’s Eve and drank too much! (i mean, maybe that’s about to happen. i’m writing this one early — for once — so i’ll have to let y’all know!) and not because i had a terrible year (i’m already…

Friday favorites: OMG it’s Christmas!

(photo: Bright Young Things) . . . okay, well almost Christmas. my decorations are all up (finally!). the last big batch of cards goes out today. and we are on a plane to NYC in a couple of hours for a fun-filled weekend full of Christmas lights, Rockettes, ice skating and holiday cheer with some…

4 reasons a girl should always buy herself a birthday present

so, yesterday was my birthday. yay! (?) i’m kind of past the point of being really excited — or depressed — about it. birthdays right now are another day, another milestone to look at what i’ve accomplished in the past year and a new start to decide what i want for the coming one. Spy…

5 on Friday: a(nother) Writing 101 mashup

(photo: thrillist.com) um. didn’t Writing 101 end like 6 weeks ago? you’re asking. i know, right? but here i am. still. did i ever tell y’all that i didn’t graduate college on time? yeah, somehow at the finish line, i still needed one more class and ended up hanging around Winter Park for the summer…

counting on sweater weather! (a Writing 101 mashup)

(image: ZC Textiles) it won’t truly be sweater weather here in Atlanta for another month, at least. but a girl can dream over a pumpkin spice latté (or not — because you would never ever catch me drinking that shit). thank goodness, Jolineys over at Keeping Track included me in her so-very-fall-ish Sweater Weather Tag so…

Writing 101: dear Lottery Gods . . .

dear Lottery Gods, we need to talk. i’m the truest of the true believers. a faithful participant in your rituals. a regular proselytizer, spreading your gospel. winning my fortune $1 at a time is just. not. cutting it. i want to know what more i need to do to receive the joy of your bounty….

Writing 101: coffee talk

if we were having coffee right now, i’d tell you how excited i am to be the only one awake in the house. i’d tell you it’s my very favorite time of day — when things are quiet and clean. it’s one of my very few windows of me time, so it’s a really perfect…

good start: 6 tips for making your day great

(photo: zastaviky.com) okay. so i have been slacking over here. a lot. i know it. it’s been a weird summer. but it’s now a new month and i’m determined to get my mess back in gear. to that end, i’m making every effort to post (nearly?) every day. and you’ll probably see a lot of…
