Fall Etsy Find—KootieZ

As the temperature drops up north, I’m desperate to find quality corduroy pants that are not “skinny” or “matchstick.” I know both these styles are considered both cute and fashionable when done in miniature, however, my two beautiful girls have inherited their mommy’s build, which does not include long, lean supermodel gams.

    Etsy Find – TwinSyndrome Empowering Panties

    If like me, after having a baby (or two or three) you may no longer be loving the under-the-belly look of your previously loved low cut styles—from jeans to underwear. And if you now prefer a higher cut brief, but still want to feel sexy (no grandma panties please), look no further than READ MORE

    As a kid, I had a long list of pen pals. Every evening before dinner, I would spend a few minutes writing notes or drawing pictures to friends. One pen pal lived just down the street, but most lived hundreds of miles away. Our regular correspondence made my daily visit to the mailbox an exciting event. READ MORE

    I’ve never been a fahionista. My sisters used to tease me saying that I dressed like a homeless man. In my defense, slouchy Gap clothes look great on models. But on me, let’s just say that if I was standing on a corner waiting to cross the street, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone threw some change at me.
