The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Go Shopping For A Man

I don't have any men in my life who need presents -- except for my dog, of course -- but making a trip to the men's department is going to make these last few days of frantic shopping bearable. Why? Because there are handsome things to take in, and I'm not talking about what's for…

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Do The Thing You’ve Been Putting Off

I bought a lamp at a thrift store for $1.95 over the summer. It's a beautiful thing -- white porcelain with tiny gold stars along its edges. The only problem was that it didn't turn on when I plugged it in. The lamp sat at home, useless, until I finally got fed up and went…

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Organize Or Clip Your Magazines

I'm a collector of many things, like shoes, Barbie dolls and magazines (I still have the first issue of Lucky). I never really notice my magazine stacks until I'm trying to find space on my bedroom floor for a new shoe box. Obviously, my boudoir is cluttered, so this month I'm going to…

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Eat Whatever The Hell You Want

Most of us, upon the arrival of the new year, swear to begin a nutritional regimen Madonna would of and take up jazzer-yoga-lates or some other new fangled workout routine.
