Over dinner last weekend – I actually could not remember how it came up – we started talking about chick flicks, light romance movies that I had the privilege to watch and enjoy.  Hubby gave his girls a weak smile, admitted he also watched “While You Were Sleeping” (“What?? I’m a fan of Sandra Bullock […]

wakeup makeup

  Is there anything wrong with vanity?  I think not.  I think everyone is entitled to some degree of vanity, and in such “reasonable” levels – which I think is subjective – so as not to be narcissistic.  You can be vain without going to the extent of actually worshipping yourself, or without shunning off […]

bookshopaholic takes the web

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. – Chinese Proverb Bookshopaholic is back! You can say it’s a continual confession of sorts, with all that semi-obsessive-compulsive ordeal whenever I get near bookshops, book sales, book fairs and just books in general. Do you ever get the feeling of shortness of breath, a […]

pack rats meet the rabbit

Most of us have this splendid dream of ending the year with a blast. Well, I did… not exactly with the grandest party but with a blast of dust and golden retriever hair big time. There are so many lessons learned in the past year, but I think the one that stuck the most before […]
