    Pinterest WTF?

    I have had a Pinterest account for more than 12 years. Over that time, I haven’t really used it that much. That had never been a problem until now.  I have been working on promoting this blog more. One of the things I wanted to do was post on Pinterest more regularly. I created a nice image to promote yesterday’s handbag post and made a pin with it. I also followed a blog I read regularly. (So one pin and one follow.) I then went to update my profile. While I was in the process of doing that (the second time since my changes didn’t stick the first time.) I…

    Summer Purse Roundup

    It’s Memorial Day weekend. Technically it’s still spring, but it’s the time of year I always start preparing for summer. I get out of storage and wash my summer dresses, and start wearing some of my summer accessories. This includes my white or light colored purses. This post will focus on a few of my favorites. First, is this cute, jeweled bag I got at Target this past week. I actually lucked out in getting this one because when I was originally looking for it last Sunday I didn’t see any in the store even though the website showed them in stock. I happened to look at the accessories section…

    Self Care Sunday- Spring Edition

    Happy almost Earth Day. It’s finally starting to feel a little more like spring. It’s still been cool recently but the daffodils are starting to come up and I saw the first dandelion of the season recently. That was nice to see after the last few days of freeze warnings and having to wear a knit cap and scarf when going out.) I love seeing nature awaken from its winter sleep. I also love the fresh spring colors. Along with pinks and blues, I’ve also been enjoying wearing purples. Here are a few favorite purple outfits. This is the swing dress in sea serpent print with a powder puff top…

    Self Care Sunday

    Today is the first Sunday in actual spring. (And Palm Sunday for some.) Unfortunately, it looks more like winter out. (I am thankful that the storm doesn’t seem as bad as they predicted. We’ll have to wait and see what the next couple of days bring.) I’ve spent a pleasant day relaxing at home. It was refreshing after the busy couple of weeks I’ve had. Yesterday was a pretty nice day out and as well as doing laundry and tidying up around the apartment I went to the Co-op and then to Target. I hadn’t really planned the Target trip but then I remembered that their Diane Von Furstenberg collaboration…

    Self Care Sunday

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day. We’re getting close to the first day of Spring, but it felt more like winter today. It was cold and windy and there were even a few snowflakes. I actually broke out the scarf and warm gloves again. (Along with my warm coat and knit cap.) I felt a little out of place while out doing my shopping all bundled up like that while everyone else seemed to be wearing light jackets and hoodies. I even saw someone in shorts. (He may how come from working out at the gym that is in the same mall as the supermarket I was going to, but it still…

    It’s not just Stanley Cups and collectibles

    Reselling collectibles and other in demand items is nothing new. I’ve known for years (and been annoyed by) the fact that people buy up hot items like sneakers, game consoles, limited edition items and resell them at prices that are way higher than retail. What I didn’t know until now was that people were doing the same thing with inexpensive items like seasonal decor from the Bullseye’s Playground area at Target. That’s really a shame because there are some super cute items and this makes it hard for people to get them if they aren’t there right when things are put out. (I’m not talking about someone buying several of…
