When life gives you lemons get some vodka

I’ve had a bitch of a week at work and finally got to the gym this morning (Yea!) and when I got to the gym realized I had left my work clothes at home (Boo!) and had only a sports bra and leggings.  To wear to court (Fuck!).   Luckily Target opens at 8am so…

Procrastinating via Googlemaps

I am so anxious about work that I was up at 3am fussing over it. But as soon as I get to the office, the desire, no, NEED to look at maps of Lake Bikal in Siberia becomes totally more important.  BTW Lake Bikal is the deepest and largest freshwater lake in the world and…

2017 is FINALLY over

  Oh boy, 2017 was a real delight. The world didn’t end but did get noticeably shittier. I have gained 5 lbs since Thanksgiving.  My house is a mess.  But we’re all still alive-ish and I got a new kitchen and like 100 new pairs of shoes this year so could be worse?  I am wearing…

WTF: the BEST pants

Girl:  Hey, do you guys have some pants that make me look like I had my legs chopped off? Selfridges:  Oh yea, these should do it.  We patterned them off of the flappy ends of cheap suits. Me:  WHY WHY WHY  

mom’s vacation

A Mom on vacation is still a Mom. Wearing multiple layers and cooking in Iceland. The sun has already gone down at 4pm– and it didn’t come up until 10am. Brrrrr. I’m not making puffin, if you’re wondering….

ESPIRT

What was the best store in the early 90’s? Where you could get rad tote bags, floral dresses, and pre-shredded tee-shirts- and where everything said ‘ESPIRT.” The last one closed near me in high school but I still have fond memories. And then, as if conjured by the elves said to inhabit the area, there…

Grocery store is not code for ‘wear sweatpants’

My rants against the slobbification of America are legendary. Flip flops are for the beach. Fleece pants are for being in your house with a cold. Oversized cartoon tee shirts are for never. see? Buying Halloween swag and some milk while not looking like I live in a van. Blouse, Ella Moss, velvet blazer I’ve…

We don’t wear gowns enough and other deep thoughts

today is my 10th wedding anniversary so I pulled the dress out of storage and wore it to pick the husband up at the airport. 1. We don’t wear gowns enough. Gowns are fucking great. 2. My dress still fits #winning 3. If you go into the bathroom at Wendy’s near the airport to pee…

Why you should shop all the time

First of all, I’ve spent the last two months curled in fetal position due to work stress.  Not good.  While I’ve still be dressing like a Boss, I just didn’t have it in me to take pics and I looked like a sad Zombie Mom/Lawyer.  Grim shit. But it’s fall!  And tights!! This delightful tweed…

Summer Forever

I ‘accidentally ‘ set my OOO message to read I would be back in April.  Oh and I bought this rad hat at the grocery store because beauty’s where you find it right? 

WTF (What the Fashion?) is this?

Where have I been?  Well, between the new season of British Bake Off, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and my actual job which I sometimes have to do, I have not been tending to the the Blog. So today I have something very special for you.  I give you…… What the Fashion!  I’ve decided to share…

Celebrate 

After many long, angry months, the kitchen is done.  I baked some bread.  Then I ate the bread.  Totally worth it.
