Tricks of the Trade.

A few crafty & thoughtful tricks to make any housewife smile. 
spend less time stressing over dripping wax on the cup cakes, 
& have more time to plan the perfect picnic for you, your
man, and your pet rabbit to enjoy together in central park!

old frame, new vanity tray!

no more toxic wax droplets ruining your Magnolia cupcakes! 

nibble safe packing "peanuts" for baby & bunny

granny's old napkin holder? 
use it to sort out going love letters and letters to pen pals!

lick, stir, repeat! 
stock up on free suckers at the bank before your BBQ!

don't get last nights dirt on tomorrows skirt!
put that hotel shower cap to use!

recently cut off all your hair and have no use for your flat iron?
it's a brand new sleek and handy iron!

not as exciting, but this towel rack does look 
elegant sporting cleaning supplies

the best for last! No more ugly pancakes, no more batter on the stove top!
I wouldn't suggest it with banana pancakes though.....
I have a feeling you would be disapointed

locks of drama

No matter how much I dream to wake up one morning a 
spitting image of Betty Draper, it has yet to become a reality.

Try though I might, my hair struggles have taken me 
to all corners of the map but the "classic, mid-century, 
dotting wife, loving mother, fabulous meat loaf recipe" corner- 
that corner I have yet to find!

Maybe next hair cut I'll get it right.
The problem I think comes in when I think "edgy" is the answer 
and loose sight of my true "domestic & majestic" personality.

a time line of hair struggles....

Winona Rider in Beetlejuice?

Clay Aiken wearing hoops? 

growing it out to be prom queen

finally looking acceptable ....

......and it's ruined

now for some hair inspiration, 

maybe I'll get it right this time!

Subway Tendspotting

spotted the next big trend on the subway today (sure to replace sillybandzz!!)- man wearing pens in his ears like Qtips- SRSLY- bic pens just sticking out of his ears!! Don't lie girls, if Marc Jabobs was selling headbands with pens sticking out of the side for $400, you WOULD want one, wouldn't you??

I'm not even kidding.
spotted on the right hot celeb, anything will sell.
let's take a moment to think about Uggs, Crocs, Sillybands, Veira Bradley bags....the list goes on.
so when ear pens get a spot in the Bergdorf window display, I better get credit for seeing that one coming!

What's a Career Girl To Do?

Choosing The Ultimate Lady Career

Spending 4 years of preparation, 2.5 years of college, and 
$20,000+ on fashion school to get your AAS in design doesn't 
sound tooo ridiculous if you plan to work in the fashion 
industry, if you fall on your face and decide you are better 
suited to a more lady like career by nature, like, say,a 
kindergarten teacher, than suddenly spending all that time 
and money on fashion school does 
seem a little unnecessary. Never the less, keep your chin up 
and your spirits high, a kindergarten teacher someday you will 
be, and a gosh darn lady like one at that!

Lady Lesson, HEAT WAVE edition!

It sure is hard to be a lady in all this heat!
I try and try but can't keep from shvitzing through my 
bra or wiping down my boob sweat with a handkerchief!

Try as I might to have a Liz Taylor grace in the sun, 
I end up looking something like a walk in freezer....
