Please note: Dear Readers, that my phone is currently on the fritz, and I would love to show you actual pictures of myself, but am temporarily, technologically stymied.
I will admit that I’m normally a little skeptical about the suggestions the Sephora folks throw at me when I visit their fine establishment. No shade to these makeup aficionados, but I’m usually looking for skincare solutions, and have a lot more i...
It has been a good month for reading, so let's get started!
To me, nothing says summer like a Mary Kay Andrews book. And since it will feel like summer for another two months, you are not late AT ALL if you decide to read one of her books right now! Mary Kay's books always take place in the South, maybe on an island off the coast of Georgia, or in Atlanta. There is always a struggle facing our Southern heroine,...
I promised Bustle that this next post would be about an amazing ravioli recipe I recently cooked.
Don’t get me wrong, I will get to that scrumptious, easy to prepare dinner, but right now I’d like to talk about something else. Job searching. Below are my expert guidelines for employers. Please note all these examples are based on real-life experiences. Mine.

"Ohmigosh, Bustle," you say, "Please, tell us this lacking will not continue a moment longer."
I've got a huge treat for you today. In exchange for driving her son to church one day, my friend and Very Cool Reader, Jennifer is sharing her Absolutely True Adventure of Bad-Assery - Getting her Motorcy...
"Hmmm," you may be thinking to yourself, "Self, doesn't Bustle live in Houston? And isn't it JULY?"
Indeed. All the clues are there. I'm wearing my cute summer daisy pants from Old Navy (these are awfully close, and they are on sale!) And I've got my $5 rose gold flip flops from Rack Room Shoes - why are these the most comfortable? And why didn't I buy two more pairs?
Summer, glorious summer, how I have longed for you. My summer ode is a bit late due to my working a preschool summer camp, but I have arrived, at long last.
So, we all approach summer reading a little differently. My friend, Mari, who teaches middle school English, does not read at all during the summer. She has been reading essays on The Outsiders all year long and could do with a break, thank you very much...
