Last year I was dedicated to the cause of finding a humidifier. I have a weird thing where I keep my fan on in my office a lot, even during the winter months. And my skin does suffer for this weird habit. Ergo, I decided everything would be fixed with a humidifier. Well, I AM glad I have it – although I should be using it more often.
What I picked was a cool humidifier type without filters. I thought I was lucking out not having to buy filters all the time, but what I didn’t realize was that I’d still have to clean it every month with bleach and vinegar (yum). So much work!
Crane Adorable 1 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier $38.99 : Had I known this existed, I’ll admit I would have gotten this particular humidifier. I will also admit that ‘humidifier’ is proving difficult for me to spell!

We know that magazines photoshop. And now that they know that we know – they’re taking greater liberties. Such is the case with the December W cover with Demi Moore. Fellow bloggers are calling it the worst photoshopped cover ever. The quest for perfection led someone to overlook the fact that they COMPLETLEY REMOVED HER LEFT HIPBONE in the process of making her appeal to us all as the unattainable perfection we should all want. So this means we have to remove entire bones now? I’m NOT signing up for that, guys! I also refuse to stop eating all carbs! (But I AM focusing more on whole grains – go me?)
How did no one miss this mistake before it went to print?
Heidi Klum hosted the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year, and while she didn’t walk in the show she looked amazing with her post-baby body. Indeed, it’s only been six weeks since she PUSHED A HUMAN OUT OF HER BODY. Yowza. (It’s her fourth child, a girl named Lou. Which I think is an unfortunate name for a baby girl. Why do celebrities make everything so difficult?)
While it’s pretty impossible for people to make Heidi look ugly, they can still put her in downright hideous clothing. And at the VS fashion show – that’s what they did. She opened the show wearing…what you’d imagine a high school teen to produce if she only had ten minutes and ten bucks. Heidi – come on. You wouldn’t let this pass on Project Runway!
I think we all recall & ... Read More
So, I saw a cool graphic that shows the most popular Christmas toys from 1960 through 2009. That’s 50 years of the most popular Christmas toys! Not only is it interesting to see, especially to note the years I was a child (did I request any of those gifts? I don’t think so…) but I have a challenge for myself that you will get the benefits of! I am going to write two lists here. The first list will be items that adults would still love to get as a way of nostalgia. The second list will be items that kids today would still love. Ready to see how I do? Grade me on a curve!
Most Popular Christmas Gifts You’d Still Love
Nordstrom has a New Moon Fashion Line based on the Twilight Saga. Do I like Twilight? …Can I plead the fifth? No, I’m not a fan. But two things: 1) Even I can admit some of this stuff is cute 2) These are great Christmas gift ideas for those who do love Twilight. Uh, Twi-hards, they’re called? I don’t even know. But enjoy, anyway!
I can at least definitely relate to Bella Swan in this Twilight quote: Sometimes I wondered if I was seeing the same things through my eyes that the rest of the world was seeing through theirs. Maybe there was a glitch in my brain. – Bella Swan, Twilight Quotes

I’m not extremely concerned with watches these days, but there was a time in my teenage years when I was. I had to have the perfect watch for school. During this picky phase I had two perfect watches. One had a black leather strap and had an image of the sun and moon on the watch face. The other face was silver with a black square watch face. I loved them both and wearing them kept me feeling reassured that I would always be able to easily check the time and never be late (I still hate being late, to this day).
But, you protest – “Jessica, we have cell phones now! Certainly we know the time.” Ah, sure. MAYBE. But can you really pull your cell phone out at every instance? Even in the middle of a big meeting, or while your hands are busy? It’s rude/inconvenient! This is why I say watches still have a purpose. AK Anne Klein also still thinks watches have a purpose and they make some of the most beautiful watches for women right now. You can buy Anne Klein watches at Macy’s, or even on Amazon.
If you’re going to wear a watch often, it can reflect your personality. And i ... Read More
Smart girls always remember! Here, I continue my journey into the things I loved in childhood and during those pesky teenage years with this post. This particular post seems to focus on childhood…but that’s okay! I had an amazing childhood full of equally amazing memories. I was blessed, I know that. Must be why my life hasn’t ever been so great since then 😉
Gund Bears: I hardly cared that they were well-made, I just knew that the SNUFFLES bear was so cute that I had to have him. And I still have him..somewhere…hmm…

There are some things I will always love, even though their hey day is long past gone. If you’re a smart woman, you never give up all of the sentimental crap (yes – you can call it crap) in your life. These are things to remember, to own forever, and force your kids into loving. I will post part two of “Let’s Get Sentimental” tomorrow…stay tuned and whatnot!

Yoplait Thick & Creamy lowfat yogurt: It really is thicker and creamier. I like yoplait yogurts a lot, especially because of all the neat and funky flavors they have like boston cream pie. I tend to love ‘Royal Raspberry’ the most alongside peach yogurt or strawberry yogurt. Smart Shopping Tips: Not all yogurt is created equal. Because I know that I won’t eat yogurt if it’s certain brands or flavors, I always try to find coupons or buy a lot at a time. It’s time to find yoplait coupons! Search for yoplait coupons printable 2009. When I searched for yoplait yogurt coupon 2009 I found a site to get a free yoplait whips. Except, it was no longer operational. Coupon Tips!: Even so, it’s best to always try to add in the year (at least) when searching for coupons for anything, especially food i ... Read More
As a girl and just as a human being – I LOVE Hello Kitty merchandise. I was embarrassingly watching an episode of The Girls Next Door when I saw Bridget having her dog do a photoshoot with Hello Kitty stuff.Well, some was cute but one thing made me laugh out loud. It was the dog wearing a big Hello Kitty hat/mask/thing. I don’t even know what you’d call it. But it was adorable. I wouldn’t buy that for a dog to wear, but it reminded me how much I love cute, pink, Hello-Kitty themed items. It’s not just for little kids!
How do you know whether someone who is a preteen/teen/adult will appreciate Hello Kitty merchandise? Honestly, you don’t. And if you don’t know that the person loves Hello Kitty (or even if they do – you never know if it’s a general love and fondness or a hardcore love where ... Read More
