Tattoos have come a long way. From being marks of renegades, as well as outlaws, to being a cultural norm. However, people change. Trends, change, too. Sometimes a tattoo once cherished, and loved, becomes a nuisance. You've changed, some people have left your life and others came, and different things begin to matter more. Whatever [...]

When did Thanksgiving become insignificant? Recently, I made a trip to a brick and mortar store. It happens sometimes. I can't do all my shopping online, because lately, I've been super lazy about gift buying. I wait until last minute.

Lice. Sadly, I had it when I was younger. I remember who started it, and how all five of us who sat around him, ended up with it. Those little pests love clean hair, and my mother was supremely anal about me having clean hair. Short, clean hair. It was my undoing, and it also [...]

Never had to wear glasses? You'll probably not understand the positive changes LASIK eye surgery has made in my life. Contact lenses can help some people, for sure.

Sonic skin cleansing brushes are my new boring girl beauty pick of the year! Especially when it comes to my face, because my hands aren't efficient to remove all the dirt from my face. Nor is a face cloth, if I'm being honest. I'm a simple girl, a boring girl, if you please. I don't [...]

Joules adds a pop of color to rain season, for sure. Honestly, there's no real rain season in New York anymore. There's no real "season" of anything. It all seems to be crazy, strange, out of season weather phenomena. When the rains do come? They hit like mother nature has something to prove to the [...]
