Well, it's technically not open to the public until July 20th, but if you have a Nordstrom card (which I highly recommend), you can shop now and get all the savings! Anywho, I wanted to share what's on my wish list, trend observations, etc.,… Continue reading Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Round Up!
I haven't posted as frequently in the last week because I've been just enjoying some time "off", as it were, with the holiday and a few days off from real work.

Here are your buffet styled topics for today! Film I recently saw Amy Schumer's new movie, I Feel Pretty. I'd seen a trailer and thought it looked kind of fun, but frankly after her last standup special, The Leather Special, I was very turned off by her. I'm all for a bawdy sense of humor à… Continue reading Smörgåsbord II
Many of you have seen the news and my god was this a doozy! The Golden State Killer, aka the East Area Rapist, Original Night Stalker, and other monikers, was actually identified, arrested, and brought into police custody yesterday!
