Real Single Girl Problems and Solutions for your Single Girl Survival Kit

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

single girl problems

The plight of the single girl never ends. Sure, some of the “artists formerly known as single” get married. But for every Carrie Bradshaw that does get married, there’s a new woman coming into her 20’s that realizes being a single girl can sure cause problems.

How can you clean without actually getting your hands dirty, how do you deal with a nosey cashier and how do you get your pets to, essentially, love you more? I’m about to discuss this all with you.

How do I unclog my shower drain without a fuss?

Single Girl Problems: My shower drain clogs up once a month because my hair is so long and thick and apparently falling out all the time!

Single Girl Solutions: If you don’t have your Dad around to guilt into cleaning it out, try the Drain Claw (http://www.thedrainclaw.com/) I do not suggest you watch too many Youtube Videos on how it works, because clogged up hair is gross. This is just the most effective and least gros ... Read More

If you’re interested in talented Canadian jewelry designers, or just very beautiful and elegant everyday jewelry, then you have to check out Brooklyn Designs.

Brooke Mosher is the Canadian jewelry designer behind Brooklyn Designs. Do you love jewelry seen on TV shows? Her jewelry has been seen on popular shows like The Secret Circle and Hart of Dixie.

“…you can look like you’re a celebrity who has casually and effortlessly put together a stunning look that subtly matches without the aide of a stylist.” – Jessica Rae

My Personal Experiences / Brooklyn Designs Review: I received a pair of earrings to review, the Silver Night Swarovski Gold-filled Drop Hoops. They’re from the Fall 2011 collection. Super sparkly, these are so elegant and long (measuring in at 3 inches) so they&# ... Read More

Pinterest Images You’ll Love for Home Decor Inspiration

dresser runner

If you’re using Pinterest(my friend Erin from Australia introduced me to the site just the other day) then you should check out RSH Catalog for home decor images that will make you feel inspired.

One item that I hope you like is the “Moroccan Runner” because I bought it! “Spice up your table with an exotic mix of textures and patterns in rich colors. Florals and golds are entwined on crushed velvet for a captivating look and feel. Hand made. 75% Viscose/25% Nylon. Professionally clean. Imported. 72″l x 14″w.” I actually bought this from a different store, but the price was the same. I planned to put it over my vanity but haven’t yet. Those damn beads on the end make Smart Kitty want to play and bite at it all the time. I might use it as my bedroom dresser runner instead, although the one I have right now is something my Mom used when she was my age so I’m a bit attached. (It’s white with embroidered flowers and some crochet work.)

black friday 2011 deals online

I’m very hyped about the Kodak Easyshare cameras this year. And why is this camera so good? Well, I want to get it for my Mom because it lets you easily upload pictures to facebook without having to know much about computers. And thought she doesn’t understand computers well, she loves facebook and also loves to take pictures. (And I’m tired of having her asking me to do it for her! I shall empower her with this gift! And the gift of empowerment is supposed to be priceless, ha!)

black friday 2011 deals online

It’s Black Friday Deals Week on Amazon! Take advantage where you can. And where can you? Well, this first thing is something in the health/beauty department.

Black Friday 2011 Deals Online

Crest 3D White Whitestrips Vivid Enamel Safe Dental Whitening Kit, 10-count Carton – Link!

List Price: $44.80 Price: $11.03 ($1.10 / Count) You Save: $33.77 (75%)

I actually got to review these. My review of them summarized is that: they work, but are not as all powerful as you’d wish they’d be. I think you need to do two sessions to achieve the whiteness that you’d ideally get in one. However, for this price it’s pretty easy to imagine doing two strip sessions in two days. It’s normally $44.80 for a box, and for this Amazon Black Friday deal it’s $11.03. That’s pretty damn good, even if you pay for shipping. If I didn’t still have some strips left, I’d buy these now.

DIY Christmas Gift Ideas for Men, Boyfriends, Moms, Etc

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

diy christmas gift ideas

If you want a sentimental and personal Christmas gift idea, let me share with you something inspired by Marilyn Monroe. While shes’ not my favorite actress of that time period (Audrey Hepburn stole my heart, tyvm) I was watching the CBS news when they talked about how they were auctioning off some of Marilyn Monroe’s personal items and clothing.

DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

One idea, done about a bazillion ways!

One item really struck me as something that you can recreate. The item was the CECIL BEATON TRIPTYCH. It’s a picture frame that folds out with three sections. The middle is a photograph from 1956, taken by photographer Cecil Beaton. It was Marilyn’s favorite photo of herself. And then in the two other slots are the two pages of a letter he wrote to Marilyn.

The selling price for this Marilyn Monroe item (which she owned and cherished) is $145,500. But you can put this time kind of priceless gift together for a friend or family member for under $20!

Think about it. All you need is a picture frame (up the ante by having it engraved, if you want), a photo (you can turn it black and white if you want. It can be a photo of them at a younger age. It can be taken by you or even a self photograph), and a letter that you write to your subject, that someon ... Read More
