Decor in Minutes Because Your Holiday Guests Will Arrive for Christmas Any Minute Now

Last week we talked about #ChristmasDecorating dorm and interior doors for the time or money strapped. These week we are going to dive into the same topic again but focus on new territory: bathrooms! Especially if you have a main floor bathroom I feel that’s the one room of the house you can guarantee every

Jamming in My Jammies: A No Stress Christmas Party Plan

I really do appreciate all the glamorous holiday parties that I tend to be invited to around this time of year. But, sometimes, I want to hang out with my friends and be festive in a slightly more low key kind of way. Enter the ugly sweater party/onesie or pajama party/sweats are cool too party.

Yes, it’s finally our favorite time of year again! I did a quick photoshoot with my seasonal wardrobe and I wanted to share with you why these pieces were so important I wanted to spend my super limited annual clothing budget on them. And by saying limited budget, I’m not kidding- I give myself $150

Snow Falls

Snow Falls softly, clinging to each limb and joint. And all of the things we ever knew are transformed, become new. But our eyes move up, up, the skies calm and dreamy, Each snowflake hung on marionette crosses, One could believe they even saw stars in this light polluted city.

This Frozen World

The Potomac is frozen over at Mount Vernon’s lookout. It’s now snowing and covering up the grass which h ad been trampled free of last week’s snow, and is now a dreamy snow laden landscape which is so easy to explore now that most tourists have been scared away by the snowfall. It’s always a

Lavender

It has been warmer these past few days, so I’m hoping Spring will soon be sprung! Lavender and fragrant flowers bobbing in the breeze, honey bees flitting about, and a pile of cushions on the back deck while I cozen up to a good read. The lavender is still out right now, though it’s leggy

Snow

Snow, snow, snow. Snow that falls in drifts and creeps into my heart, snow that you ball up but promptly falls apart. Snow that swirls and moves as the wind flows by snow that dancing like a flock of birds through the night sky.

Merry Christmas!

Whether you`ve decked out in holly and are feeling quite jolly, Or you find that this is a troublesome day; Whether your heart is light and merry or your feelings are now contrary I hope you`ve had a beautiful day. For the Christmas night is nearing, and we`re leaving all the giving so endearing, and

Snow

Snow. Drifting, Falling. Twists and turns, leaps and bounds, snow balls whizzing through the air. Winter. Snow takes you there. And when it is cold, And the fire is cozy, And your family surrounds you, and the world is bare, silent. Honest and comforting. Its the snow that takes you there. Its the snow that

Geek Style

Two months ago I did a research visit (Yeah, research. suuure, Z!) at Katsucon. Among many amazing things I hadn`t seen in general, I also saw many elements of style I don`t run into when I flip through my Vogue or fashion blogs. Which is actually pretty surprising, considering that you`d think the first place

Winter`s Ease

12/21/12 12:21 am. I love Winter. It is such a beautiful season. I realize now that I`ve actually done most of my Winter time posts complaining that I wanted Spring! It`s not quite true. Winter may actually be my favorite season, so I think I need to share some of my love for it now.

Here we Never Let it Cool

A beautiful fancy free day. The sun is shining, kids are smiling, and I am off to play. Why? It`s a snow day! A beautiful day where snowballs are thrown and smiles are universal. Since snow comes to these parts so rarely, especially on a year like this one that is not the seventh year

Ants in My Pants

I know you are going to be shocked, but I just had to come clean. Are you ready for the truth. Ok. I`ll tell you. (Not the gumdrop buttons!) No? Nobody got my Shrek quote? I`ll admit it, I took some time to mope and drown my sorrows in a book, when I should have

Casual Geekery

In a galaxy, far far away, lives another race. A race that speaks Klingon and knows Tolkien`s elvish runes by heart. A race of humanoids that can encrypt data faster than a cartoon man leaping over tall buildings, while wrestling angry dragonoids in a 3-D gaming platform. This race is a proud component of geekdom,

Tip Toeing Among The Tulips: Gardening in Winter

Whispers and murmers pass through the chilled air. The forsythia bush lets out her gold hair! The cheerful songbird`s chirps once more fill the air, and at last we may say to each other “Spring is here!” Frugal Frau has started seeds in her Aerogarden. It`s made me even more wistful for the start of
