Summer Beauty And Other Myths

Listen, I know I’ve been out for awhile. I’ve missed you. But now that we’re all back together again, can we talk about summer beauty? I don’t believe in it any more. And not only because the summer’s almost over and I’m jaded and sun damagaed. I don’t believe in because it doesn’t exist in … Continue reading “Summer Beauty And Other Myths”

Spring Fashion Report 2016

Spring has sprung! The buds on my viburnum smell delicious, my daffodils are in full bloom, and this sentence sounds like I know what to do in a yard. That’s the prerogative of a blog writer. You get to lie at will. To help you get the most out of your life, I here offer … Continue reading “Spring Fashion Report 2016”

Oscars Viewing Guide

A thousand years ago, when I was young and carefree, I used to watch movies. Moving pictures, as we called them. It was a grand time, a glamorous time, a time when I could eat an entire bag of Cheetos and not feel anything but happiness. It was a time when I could sleep in … Continue reading “Oscars Viewing Guide”

You Take Care Now

I had my first manicure last week. Actually, it wasn’t a real manicure. It was a fake one, lasting only about ten minutes. And it was free. And I was in an airport lounge where the “manicurist” might also have been the “janitor.” I don’t know. I didn’t ask. Because it was FANTASTIC. My nails … Continue reading “You Take Care Now”

Winter Fashion: Marc Has Concerns

Marc and I have been married seventeen years. I married a good man, which is fortunate for me since I was completely clueless and about ten years old. One thing we know after all these years together is that Marc knows best what clothes look good on me. Please don’t send me letters and try … Continue reading “Winter Fashion: Marc Has Concerns”

Pool Time and Other Dangers

I really do love me some pool time. Am I wrong to say such a thing, in this day of skin cancer awareness and limited sun hours? Well, I do. I’m not saying I bake out there until my epidermis flakes off and  my hair catches on fire, but I do love to feel the … Continue reading “Pool Time and Other Dangers”

Summer, in Theory

Oh, summer. I am so happy it’s here. Just when I thought I would lose my ever-lovin’ mind, summer arrived. And I am grateful. But let’s just be honest this year, Kim. (Danger! Danger! when I start speaking in the third person!) Summer is full of false promises in the area of fashion. I love … Continue reading “Summer, in Theory”

Being Real With My Bad Self

Listen, I tried to be Wonder Blogger Girl. I really did. For awhile there, I was posting three (THREE!) times a week, which easily shattered any previous record ever set here. And I enjoyed it because I like you people and I like hearing from you. Turns out, however, thrice weekly was too much. I’m … Continue reading “Being Real With My Bad Self”

Because I love you, I have gone ahead and condensed a spring fashion guide right here, right now. You may write me a thank-you note. But please only do so if you are wearing one of these featured ensembles. First we have the ever-beloved crotch pant.   Because we all have great reasons for accentuating that … Continue reading “Spring Fashion 2013”

Jeggings and Other Horrors

Please, please help me out here. Why the jeggings? Photo source. Try not to concentrate on the fact that this particular woman hasn’t eaten since half-way through the Clinton administration and focus instead on my confusion. Why skin-tight jeans that aren’t jeans, with cuffs that squeeze all the blood out of one’s ankles? I have … Continue reading “Jeggings and Other Horrors”

Reasons I’m Not Famous

Did you watch the Golden Globes? Yeah, me neither. I had good intentions and I think Amy P. and Tina Fey are hi-larious, but I get so distracted so easily and I think that night I cleaned out my shoe rack. Turns out, the Birkenstocks I bought in the mid-nineties really AREN’T coming back in … Continue reading “Reasons I’m Not Famous”

Signage, Part One

Say this word five times fast: Signage. Say it. Now assure your children you haven’t been drinking, but that when you get older, laughs are cheap and you have to resort to reading blogs by crazy people. When Marc was in grad school, he came home one day and told me in a disbelieving tone … Continue reading “Signage, Part One”
