Lust List: Chic Christmas Sweaters

Winter has come, and now sweater season is now upon us! Seeing that Christmas pretty much starts in October now, it makes sense that one should own more than one holiday sweater. “Ugly Christmas sweater” have become a legit millennial necessity, available all over Amazon and every crappy t-shirt shop online. Sure, a half-decent sweatshirt with Jon Snow on the front might win you the prize at your next ugly...

Mug Collection: Cath Kidston “Mews Ditsy” Stanley Mug

Let’s get frivolous and talk about mugs, shall we? If there’s anything that says “millennial woman”, it’s a mug collection. Despite my husband’s insistence that we don’t need more mugs, I’ll take one home every so often, promising that we’ll get rid of all the matching ones eventually. We haven’t yet, which is a good thing that I’m picky. Every so often I’ll come across a great mug only to...

A Third Life Housewife/Full-Time Middle-Class Retail Associate (Kind of Writer) Crisis

I was going to buy myself a new pair of shoes tonight but then I compared my bank account to my credit card statement and I realized where my money really needed to go. I had a drink instead. Long story shot, I can freely admit that my plans with this blog have not come near to fruition. I’m still trying to figure out what it is I’m supposed to...

Filling Up Your Closet: Where to Shop Now that Modcloth Has Sold Its Soul

I’m sure by now that most of the “online shopper community” has heard the news of beloved indie boutique, Modcloth, is soon to be acquired by Jet.com, a company owned by Wal-Mart. As far as small companies go, this is relatively par for the course, but for consumers like myself who like to make shopping choices reflect our personal values, it’s a hard hit. For years Modcloth has been a...

I’ve Entered the Dirty Thirties

For the last few months I’ve been excited about turning thirty. There’s something about growing out of a decade of life you’ve mentally drifted away from that feels satisfying. I haven’t exactly lived the standard life of a woman in her 20’s for a while. That pivotal moment of becoming an “adult” for me was buying a house, and after that the parties I used to throw became less frequent....

Sharon Morris: My Spirit Mom

I’m just gonna get straight to this: Being a new mom was rough goings for me. I don’t know if I had any legit symptoms of PPD. I thought about it sometimes, but was convinced that things weren’t “that bad”. Of course the late nights and the aching tits and numb wrists and the horrible feeling of being tethered to the sound of that newborn gremlin cry and whatever else...

Week of Wardrobe: July 25th – July 31st, 2016

This is late, but Iv’e got my posts here. Recently I painted my nails a Canadian $10 bill shade of purple, and I was obviously trying to cater my outfits to that polish this week. Everything just has to match, IMO. This week was a bit daunting with the writing, because on Wednesday I went out and got printer ink for the printer that I USED to own, and didn’t...

What A Lie, What A Life

One of the things that’s deterred me from “lifestyle blogging” is that need for perfection. Whenever I do make posts from my house or of my things, I typically shove all the clutter into one corner and fake myself a house that looks like the houses all the bloggers have. Since we’ve done renos and continued to live life between the renos, there have been fewer and fewer spots wherein...
