10 things NOT to say to people with curly hair!

  I was born bald. Like my own baby bottom. I didn’t grow hair enough for bows until around age three. Until then, my mom would tape little bows on my hair for photos. And constantly tell people I was a GIRL. Not a boy with pierced ears. I’ve more than made up for it though. Today my hair is this big, in your face, curly thing that causes people to say, think, and do things to it — and to me — that the average haired person has probably never encountered. It’s cool. I’m old now and I get…

  When it comes to being traditionally organized, I have to admit, I am an epic failure. But, it’s not for lack of effort. I try. Like real talk. I have a lot on my plate, I crave streamlining in my life. I download apps and I buy calendars. I buy bins and stackable crates. I’ve even invested in time with a professional to guide me towards the path of organized righteousness. All in vain as I remain perpetually discombobulated, consistently disorderly, and dramatically unorganized. In the traditional sense. Because, when you break it on down, there’s a method to…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

  This weekend we enjoyed some lovely spring weather, the Easter holiday, and Batman v Superman! You guys know how I feel about superhero movies — So. My. Jam. But, before we talk all of the things here, let me back it up a bit. Personally, when it comes to super heroes, I am so Team Marvel over Team DC. The Marvel heroes and their stories are more compelling to me. And they have Chris Hemsworth (Thor). He could be a bad guy and I’d still totally root for him and his man bun. That being said, Superman has always been one of my…

5 Fashion Week Styles For Real Life

  Every year during New York Fashion Week I sit at home and flip through magazines and websites scowling at the photos. Rarely is there ever anything appropriate for people with a normal lives consisting of working at a desk, shopping at a grocery store, going to their kids’ schools for meetings and events, and to…like…drop off the lunch they left sitting on the counter. Again. Not to mention the price. I don’t know about you, but the car I drive doesn’t cost as much as some of the items I’ve seen models strutting down the cat walk in. But, I do…

Zootopia may be the best film in 2016!

  Or at least in March. For those of you who read my recent write up on The Revenant, you’re probably thinking, “This title explains so much.” Of course the girl who doesn’t appreciate the Oscar nominated, cinematic-ally inspiring, basically true story of survival is going to love some low brow animated flick from Disney. Only, uh-uh, because it wasn’t low brow. It was high brow! Sort of. At least in that hey-this-is-more-than-a-movie-about-a-crime-stopping-bunny kind of way. And, honestly, it made you think. About things we could all stand to do a little thinking on these days. And then, in classic Disney style, it…
