Bold Moves, Breakup “Blues”

August 25, 2015
Pink Lipstick

After breaking up with my college boyfriend of 2 and a half years, I chopped nearly a foot of hair off, and then had the chin-length amount that remained, dramatically highlighted so that I looked as if I dropped 50 IQ points.

This year, when I knock…

Tina the Turkey - Possible on of the best homemade Thanksgiving decorations ever!

Food It’s not enough that we feast on turkey and pie only once a year. Two weeks ago I started craving the rich creaminess of pumpkin pie in a buttery crust and cozy mashed potatoes smothered in gravy. With Thanksgiving still two and a half weeks away, there was only one way for me to feast without family: Friends-giving!
