I love that the Seasons are just long enough so that by the end of one you are ready for the next. I also love {Read More}

Suitcases are Cool

I love this look from apartment therapy We live in a 60s chamfer on brick house in the burbs. We have enough room (for now) and are quite comfortable. Storage however, is our biggest issue. Mr Cool would say we have too much stuff, but, you know, what does he know about it…. These pictures inspired me to think outside of the ‘box’ regarding storage.

The Rules of Shopping

I again state that I do not position myself as being ‘cool’ or any kind of fashion icon. However, I do love to shop and have become quite good at looking okay on a reasonably undetermined but by no means extravagant budget.  So…. here are some rules to remember when you are confronted with the bright lights and dizzying array of fashion…. 1) When shopping, don’t go looking for just one item  – trying to find a white v-neck t-shirt {Read More}

Things Needed To Be Cool

The pre-claimer to this post is that I do not see myself as cool.  I am stocky, spotty, outspoken but shy, self conscious and intimidated by people who are either better looking than me, thinner than me, smarter than me or more successful than me: this means I am intimidated by just about everyone!
