    #wednesdaywisdom

    I leave for my lunch break today because I didn’t pack my lunch and was jonesing for a diet Coke which my skin will pay for later. I drive by the local McDonald’s and there are at least 30 cars stacked up, I figured that the McRib was back (gag) so I went to a gas station. Turns out, the internet was down for a portion of the city and they couldn’t take electronic payment. A rather obnoxious fellow was heckling the clerk and says, Of course I don’t have cash. Who carries cash? It’s the 21st Century! This guy hasn’t scene Terminator apparently but Doomsday Prepper Stella shines in…

    Kitchen Tour

    So, you guys want to see my kitchen? Cool, because I literally have nothing else to talk about tonight and I just cleaned the shit out of it. Can I really  call it a tour if it’s only 50 square feet of space? I love my kitchen, it’s not to everyone’s taste – very flea market chic, heavy on the kitsch but I like it. I don’t like how modern it is, my dream is to a) own a well-maintained home that was built in 50’s or b) build a customized replica. The colours and shapes from that era appeal to me for some reason, I have been feeling the…

    Summer Intentions

    Does that title make any sense? I dunno, I don’t love the term ‘Bucket List,’ I get the meaning of it but I don’t like thinking of life’s tasks as a to-do list before death. The morbid reality of life aside, I have some things that I want to check off my list this summer – nothing monumental because #work #costoflivingisgettingseriouslyoutofhand but I have a feeling that it’s going to be a good summer! Preferably near the Boundary Waters but local would be fun too – I really enjoy camping, it’s nice to get out in nature and away from traffic and people. Even a 3 day weekend up North…

    #wednesdaywisdom

    I am contemplating starting Boxycharm again because the June box looks pretty great and includes the Reina Del Caribe palette that I had on my recent wish list. The full spoilers for one of the boxes included a charcoal pencil and OFRA lipstick which I would not use but could give away. We’ll see, I have a hankering for a beauty box of some kind so I will have to keep an eye out for something special – let me know if you are trying anything awesome lately that you would recommend. Thanks for stopping by <3

    Top Ten Tuesday – Binge Worthy Television

    Top Ten Tuesday is a Reddit classic but usually pretty specific to music, I will just be talking about whatever I want in this series; could be beauty, music, books, clothing – you get the idea. Today’s top ten will be my most binged shows and ones that I feel are worth your time (and emotional) commitment. Gilmore Girls – Of course this show was everything when I was a tween and then heading to college but I took a chance on a re-watch this winter and it is still just as good as it was then. It is the perfect mix of idyllic fantasy and reality, there’s a lot of…

    Tips for Spending Less Time Adulting

    Adulthood, that glorious final stage in life shrouded in mystery that every child dreams of. Well actually, I think a lot kids probably grew up recognizing how stressed and harried most adults were and that tainted the desire to be an adult just a little. I think the biggest misconception that you have about adulthood as a kid is that you will suddenly have all of this freedom in addition to your carefree kid lifestyle; no school, junk food galore, MTV, driving – these things that we want because we cannot have them. I mean, if driving was the big reveal I am here to tell you that not only…

    Going Self-Hosted…!

    I just read this fascinating article about the ‘people rental’ business in Japan and am somehow not shocked at all that this is a thing! I mean, I am somewhat surprised that some of the available rentals are infants (it sounds like they are accompanied by their parents) but I can totally understand the niche that this service satisfies. The extremes that people will go to in an effort to cultivate a perfect image is unsettling but a stand in mom for those who have lost their own? A kid to take to the movies, a grandmother to take flowers to – people have found a way to have human…

    Bedroom Update

    I think that the bedroom is done, or at least as far as what I wanted to with it. The BF still has a corner where he has a bunch of random shit but it seems organized. I’m still side-eying it. I didn’t take any ‘Before’ pictures because I didn’t think that I would be talking about this on my blog but here are some ‘After’ pictures and I can share the major changes. First, we used to have two side tables and now he just has the one. I completely emptied mine and it’s up for sale currently, if it doesn’t get picked up this month then I will…

    Friday the 13th Facts!

    I am a fan of Friday the 13th, I feel like it’s a little taste of Halloween throughout the year. I especially enjoy it when it falls in October but it can be a stressful day for some. My mom was not a fan of the day, she would cancel appointments and stay home, it was bizarre. I don’t think that there is anything particularly special or unique about the day and most of the hysteria can more than likely be attributed to pop-culture. That being said, we are currently experiencing a torrential downpour that is supposed to turn into a record setting blizzard so it feels a little ominous.…

    Design Inspo – Mid Century Modern

    Remember when your grade school teachers would tell you that; There was no such thing as a stupid question? They were lying. Or perhaps they were making an effort to encourage curiosity and inquisitiveness but beyond the age of 13, there are plenty of stupid questions that people should keep to themselves. And yet, I feel that as we age – instead of getting wiser, we become even more stupid. My favourite was working retail and explaining the return policy to a customer only to then be asked, So – I can’t return this? No, stupid – you can’t. I feel like every question that I have been asked today…
