I was helping my daughter get ready for a party and we got to talking about tights. She couldn’t believe how difficult they were to put on, and how likely they were to get stretched out/slip down in places. I was telling her that in my long life, I had faced a near constant battle […]
No one has to be told that parenting is rough sometimes, but what’s hard to remember is that every kid is different. Making it even more difficult are the parents who think they know so much better than everyone else, and make it their job to let the world know. Though some of us have […]
This just in: Ladyblogland wrote some great stuff this week.
It seems like you can’t hock a loogie without hitting an article about all the things 20-somethings are doing wrong, or should be doing, or need to do ASAP if they’re going to be high-powered CEOs with perfect marriages and 2.5 dogs by the time they hit 30. This is not one of those articles.
What Would I Say? is the newest app to take Facebook by storm. Reminiscent of the now-defunct Horse_ebooks Twitter account, the app takes snippets from your previous Facebook posts and recombines them into new phrases. Most of the statuses it generates are pretty nonsensical, but sometimes it creates absolute gems.
Hello, It’s me. Your mom. At the time I’m writing this letter, I’m 26. I am awesome. You are not born (or even possible) yet, so I can spend all my money and time on myself. It’s a wonderful life. I assume by the time you’re old enough to read this letter, I will have […]
Hey readers, I didn’t have a question in the ask box, so I thought I’d turn this over to you.
I knew about this wedding since last year, but because my luck with finding a romantic kind of date has had a 0% success rate, I had no doubt in my mind about who my plus one would be. I knew that it had to be my best friend. I asked her before the invites […]
Kittens, when I’m feeling down, I turn to the wisdom of the almighty.
I can’t stand “milestone timeline” articles that advise women that by the time they are 30 they should know how to prepare at least one flaming dessert, or that by the time they are 40 they should have done their first poetry reading. They are gimmicky, arbitrary, and seemingly designed to make readers feel inadequate. IMHO, […]
Every few months or so, someone on my Facebook newsfeed or elsewhere will put out a general call for book recommendations. Other friends will chime in, and the discussion that ensues makes us all end up adding more books to our to-read mental lists. In the spirit of those sorts of posts, from the semi-varied […]
It seems to me that nowadays, the idea of self-love has become a trend. As far as I can remember, I’ve always seen my aunt read about it in magazines, but I feel as though in today’s society it is more of a grossing business and less of a personal and spiritual matter.
When I first arrived in Liverpool, I had very little money and nowhere to stay. I managed to get the last available bed in the mixed dorm of a hostel that was crowded, dark and not completely tidy, but it had an atmosphere that made me and everyone else feel right at home. Within days, […]
Rather than give you another list of adult advice like, “Dance like no one’s watching,” here’s some wisdom you can actually use.
Let’s just get this out of the way – the world would be a much better place if everyone took my advice. Trust me on this.
