Mighty Mendit

For the sewing- and craft-challenged, I present to you, Mighty Mendit. Mighty Mendit is like glue, but not. It's a bonding agent that grabs, adheres, and interlocks the fibers of almost any fabric for a permanent repair. It doesn't break down in the wash either. You may be wondering what … [Read more...]

Uggs and the Love/Hate Relationship

“With all the fun, cute, shoes out there, why would anybody put those on her feet?” That was pretty much my reaction a few years ago when I opened a magazine and saw some teen diva sporting Uggs.

The Holiday Sweater

Today we're going to talk about something every woman HATES to shop for -- swimsuits.  Nothing strikes fear in the heart of a woman like swimsuit shopping.  And I am no different.  I have a laundry list of requirements for a swimsuit. 1) It must come in two pieces for potty … [Read more...]

Spanx and Assets

I'm new here so I'm not sure if this is allowed but I sure do want to write about Spanx.  Spanx are similar to footless pantyhose that smooth down your hiney and legs creating a mirage of a perfect tush under your clothes.  It's like wearing super-thin, comfy, tight long underwear.
