I was very disappointed in this boot. The calf is not wide at all. It has like a 17' calf I believe..I tried to go get them tailored, and then the boot people screwed up, so now i can only wear them under pants.


Writers Block.. Aint that a bitch?

I took a good look in the mirror at my hair yesterday. It is thick and full and I am so happy with it I could spit. I am constantly petting it. My husband is constantly petting it.

I have absolutely nothing to talk about. Unless you want to hear about my schooling. My copy editing class is fun. My business ethics class makes me want to run into a wall from the disorganization that the woman is putting me through. Trig.. is math. I hate math. I want to stab it in its beady face (you know math has a beady face.. it's math!).

In other news, I want these boots from torrid


However, I have large calves. The last time I ordered boots (not from torrid, from newport news) and they told me they were wide, they weren't. So I went to get them widened at a shoe shop. THEY BUTCHERED MY BOOT! Not only did they butcher it, I STILL can't get them over a pair of skinny jeans. Let me show you my desecrated boots.

Hold for picture please.

 If you look not where my thumb is, but where my pointer finger is, there was the little stretch that the boot maker gave the boot.. These people cutt the fabric in a giant V and sloppily stitched in some black stretchy stuff.. MY BOOTS ARE A CARMEL COLOR! Why would you put black there? Does that even make sense? I can't even wear these with skirts now, because it looks so tacky. I just wear them under jeans really, which defeated the purpose of those damn boots.

*deep breath*

I should really get dressed and take the dogs out and maybe even try and clean my craft room. It doesn't look like a craft room. It looks like a junk/trash/clothing room. I look like I should be on an episode of Hoarders.

Speaking of which did anyone watch it last night? What about the old woman that was pooping in bags? *GAG*

Alright I am out. I am reviewing products currently and I promise these nonsensical ramblings will take a backseat soon.

So I thought my people would be able to help out!

Hey Guys!

As I am sitting here, banging my head into a brick wall, trying to do my trig homework, I realized, I need a new desk.

I have had this one for several years. It was the first piece of real furniture I'd ever purchased as an "adult." It has been taken apart and put back together several times. It is the wobbliest thing in the world.

Now, normally Picking out a new desk wouldn't be a problem.. except for one tiny thing.. I do crafts as well as homework on the desk.

I need something roomy and sturdy. Roomy enough for scrapbooking supplies and sturdy enough for, well, me
 :-). Do you have any suggestions? Any Brands that you like? Let me know!


Using I chose three winners. spat out three numbers in this order: 7, 11, and 10

Those people are: Patrice, Kelly, and Nina!!

Yay to you guys! Go ahead and shoot me an email at with your shipping information. Once I get that, Tasha will be in contact with you to see what shea butter you will be receiving. Patrice chooses first, then Kelly, then Nina.

If I do not hear from you guys within 24 hours I will choose someone else.
Thanks guys!

To Henna or not to Henna

 First off, thanks to everyone who entered the contest! I will tally entries later on today and use to announce a winner tomorrow! yay!

So, I purchased some henna a couple weeks ago. 

So here is the problem I am running into. I found a ton of articles on the type of henna you should get (body art quality) and what to avoid (any henna that says it will turn your hair a color other than the reddish color that henna is supposed to be). However, I am finding different ways to approach the usage of the henna. Worse, I am finding that you may end up with a permanently stained bathtub. Guys, we just bought this house. I do not want my bathrooms stained! I have to do some more research before I apply this stuff to my head. 

(The kind I purchased)
In other random news. I wish my nose would fall off. Seriously. It can take my stinkin' sinuses with it. With the weather change comes the allergies. I have a constant headache during this time. It is killer. I hope you guys are having a fabulous labor day and that you are rebelling and wearing white! I am.. It's got stripes on it, but it is still mainly white! yay!

Twist outs braid outs

Let me preface this with something: I know how to braid. However, it is not really a braid someone would want to wear in their hair.

I would love to be able to cornrow or flat braid my hair. I want to do twist outs and braid outs. Do you have any good tutorials you watch on youtube to help you?
