Blog Funk

M'dears, A few months ago, I remember reading more than a handfull of posts by some of my favorite bloggers discussing their own blog funks and dissatisfaction.  Most of them rebounded quickly and have continued to be some of my favorites. Working 30-40 hours a week in retail is exhausting, I'm not going to lie to you.  I absolutely love it, but a lot of human contact means a very tiring day.  I'm kind of an introvert (I'm an INFJ, if you're curious) so this work leaves me wanting to do a little more hibernating. The best thing about my job is that ...

Sick & Lazy Sunday

By 0 , , , , Permalink 0

Hi darlings, So apparently retail is a danger to your health and well-being.  Not like, shopping, but working in retail.  But actually, it's probably just my weak-ass immune system, which essential works about 70% of the time.  If there's something going around, I will come down with it.  My throat hurts like the dickens. Luckily for you, this means I've had plenty of time to sit in bed looking for Sunday links!  Hoorah! & Throwback: This guest post by Kyla Roma on My Girl Thursday was one of the first posts I read about starting a blog and how to do it your way. & ...

New Job Announcement + Instagrams!

Darlin's, I know it's been ridiculously long since last I posted, and I even neglected Lazy Sunday (because ironically, it wasn't lazy at all).  I'm a failure.  Except I'm not a failure because I've been working at my new job for around 25 hours a week!  It's pretty fantastic, and now I can actually tell you about it! ...I just started at Adam & Eve Pittsburgh!  If you've never heard of Adam & Eve, it started in the 70's as a mail delivery service for condoms, and grew until it became a well-known and trusted brand for toys, contraception, and even lingerie. ...

Reading on My Nook to Avoid Judgment

Any of my darlings have e-readers?  I'm kind of obsessed with my Nook.  Anyone staunchly opposed to e-readers?  Then you obviously don't do any guilty pleasure reading outside your own home.  Don't look at me like that. This morning, I caved.  I bought the first 4 books in the Pretty Little Liars series by Sarah Shepard.  After watching the first two seasons of the show in less than a semester (hey, I'm not proud), and upon realizing I have nothing to read that's not intellectually enriching, I thought, hey, why not? I could have bought the paperback boxed set, but then I ...

Lazy Trader Joe’s Sunday (!!!)

By 4 , , , , Permalink 0

Oh yeah, Darlings. I FINALLY WENT TO TRADER JOE'S.  That's right.  There's been one literally five minutes from my apartment for 8 months now and  I had no idea because I'm directionally challenged.  Luckily, the fella that's been taking me out recently (also known as NerdyRG if you follow me on Twitter) knows his way around the Pittsburgh neighborhoods better than I do. What did I get? All things that are good!  Goat cheese brie, Joe Joe's sandwich cookies, almond cocoa spread, fish sticks and chicken strips that aren't packed with sodium or preservatives, and a buttload of veggies (and hummus!).  It ...
