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 is Fall, Y'all!  

And by that, I mean the weather has dipped gloriously below 80 degrees!  Never mind that it will only last 2 days before seizing up again, we are enjoying it!

And in preparation, I've been trying on sweaters. So, for your consideration: *

Hello, Dear Readers!  Vim here.  As you all know, Bustle and I love to read, and to share our recommendations with YOU.  And as is so often the case with us, we are very different in some ways, and remarkably of the same mind in others.  For instance, I tend to read a lot of fantasy and science fiction.  Bustle reads a lot of spirituality and self-help.  But the Venn diagram of where we meet is clear: Victorian Lad...

It has been a while since I've written about clothes.  It's been a while since I've shopped, but this spring I've remedied that with a vengeance.  Much thanks to Loft, and their fabulous sales!

Vim and I have talked about this a lot.  We both like clothes, but we just can't shop enough to make fashion a regular post.  Oh, Nordstrom, when will you send me packages with the express purpose to try clothes on and b...

It's Christmastime, and I'm not fooling around.

Ok, you guys.  Bustle insists that I blog about this.  Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday.  I love it the most, and the holiday season brings on a kind of strange mania in me, where I can't rest until all of my many and wondrous holiday tasks are complete. 

The only other time I get this kind of weird OCD is when I pack for a trip.  But I don't enj...

Bustle:  Vim and I received our birthday presents from each other this past week, and we both sent each other necklaces!  How's that for maintaining the same wave length o'er the miles that separate us?

Should I mention that we are both September birthdays?  Yes, we're running a little late this year.  I blame Harvey.  Vim was planning to come to Houston, and we were going to celebrate our birthdays togeth...

I'm texting with my friend, Kathleen:

    "I need an engaging title about earrings"

Years ago I called on Kathleen for help creating a birthday invitation for Younger Son's 1st birthday.  The theme was Hawaiian, and I had the beginning:

"Hula to the Left...

Hula to the Right...

Younger's turning ONE on Saturday night!"

But then I was stumped.  Kathleen emailed the following to me:

"Eating and Munching

And Drinking wit...

So, I'm sitting at the Clip Joint waiting for my son to get his hair cut when I notice the woman next to me.  Rather, I notice her bracelets.  Now, I could have kept my admiration to myself.  But I have never, ever liked something silently in my life.  So, I pipe up, "Ooh, I like your bracelets.  Where did you get them?" See, if you admire stuff quietly, you remain ignorant; not everything is an obvious Google sear...

Happy Mid-Summer to you all!  I hope this post finds you sipping iced tea, walking indoors, parking in covered garages and whatever else you can do to stay protected from this insane, unrelenting HEAT!  I woke up pretty early this morning and took my pup for a walk.  I came home dripping like some saved candle stored away in the attic.

I just bought this Sports Armband called a QuanFun (like, wearing it I...

Bustle tersely noted today that I have been remiss in my blogging duties, and she's right.  Very right.  Well, it was terse for her.  She's gentle as a lamb, but I've known her most of my life so I can read between the tenderly worded lines.  She has also rather compassionately noted that I seem depressed of late, and she's also probably right about that.  Dear Readers, I'm having a tough time.  Perhaps you are too...
