#Nailsoftheday- Spring Pink!

I LOOOOOVE Morgan Taylor polishes. I only own about six (and two of those are the same color, because I went through a whole bottle of this delicious hot pink that always garners compliments), which is a tiny percentage of my polish collection. You can see the few Morgan Taylors on the top shelf to…

Scott’s Birthday/Best tacos & coffee in ATX

Yesterday was my partner Scott’s 35th birthday. I listen to RuPaul’s podcast (the last one with Leah Remini was great) and Ru always says that 35 is a hugely transformational year. I’ve been reminding Scott about this whenever he feels “over the hill.” When your worries about aging come from a place of desiring more out…

Austin, Texas finally has everything. At least as far as cupcakes are concerned. Sprinkles Cupcakes has arrived at the Northside district of the Domain. The fun outdoor shopping center in Austin has been attracting more residents, restaurants, and cool shops lately with its expansion. Now, it has Sprinkles. I found out Sprinkles was opening one…

Hair Dye Secrets!! No Pain, No Itching!!

Note: Although I mention a lot of specific brands, this is not sponsored content. I am just sharing what helped me! They say beauty is pain. But I have no tolerance for the scalp-burning kind of pain that hair dye has always meant. Not to mention the other problems that come with dyeing your hair…

The Bachelor Contestant Survey

In preparation for Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor premiering soon, I started reading the profiles of his Bachelorettes on ABC’s website. And as usual, it’s hugely entertaining. Some of the girls’ answers are laugh out loud funny. But really, would mine be any better? I fill out the biography questionnaire below for fun. Contestant…

Act III Woes

I just have to share… I am REALLY struggling to write right now. I know what I have to write, I want to write, but I have to write the climax at this point. I’ve reached my climax chapter. This is what I am worst at as a writer. I have a lot of strengths,…

Reading as a Writer

Reading can be a complicated passion for me. I have been rereading “The Girl’s Guide To Hunting And Fishing,” which is an amazing fiction novel by Melissa Bank and has nothing to do with hunting or fishing. I first read it about ten years ago, and time is on my side when it comes to…

Winter Coats

It’s difficult to have foresight. I wonder if this is a trait that can improve with time, like a sign that you are an adult. I’ve been thinking of this tonight in my apartment in Austin, as I shop for winter coats online. The temperature dropped, as it always does, even in the middle of…
