slip cover

I am constantly amused by the hypocrisy of humans – specifically in regards to acceptance of undergarments worn in public, solely based on what we call them. Step out into public in your bra and underwear and you’re a skank with a chance of getting arrested; yet that same ensemble called a … [continue]

More is More.

Debtor:           “Hey man here’s that money I owe you.” Creditor:         “Thanks but…this is only ten bucks, you owe me fifty.” Debtor:           “You know, I always like to say that less is more.” Creditor:         “Less is more huh?

Put a Glove on It

You hear it nearly everyday growing up. You attend classes in school on the subject, watch videos and PSA’s; maybe in the 70’s it was only for sailors going from port to port, but this is 2013 and I’m talking about protection.

Have you ever seen something labeled, one-size fits all? If so, you’ve probably been a little skeptical about its size-defying properties. How can this be?

So many times throughout our childhood and teenage years, our parents told us things that we could only balk at. Eat your vegetables, exercise or your bad eating habits will catch up with you, don’t drink and drive, save your money, make a plan for your future…in our minds they were merely telling us these […]

White is such an underappreciated and underutilized color – such a pristine hue is not made for the filthy world we live in. Many people are afraid to wear white or purchase white things, knowing they’ll have to go to great lengths to protect these items which will inevitably get dirty and stained at some […]

Disclaimer:  I did not make the photo you see above – I found this on a skincare website. I can’t say whether these results are real or if they were photoshopped, but I thought they were worth showing. As of last Thursday, I’m back on Retin-A as I promised I would be! Interestingly enough, this […]
