Maybe I do need to move back to LA.
"friends" & 90s fashion
When I was a kid, all I watched was Friends. I’d watch every episode Thursdays at 8pm whilst recording it (on VHS) and then I’d watch them over and over again. I knew the lines word for word and I converted everyone I knew into avid Friends watchers. All the live long day, Friends. Every episode was so applicable and they’re even more hilarious now that I’ve been living...
unemployment week 2 - the beginning
This morning was rough. I woke up at 7am (usual get-ready-for-The-Seven-morning-meeting-time that I’ve been waking up every day for the last 10 months) and there were lingering thoughts. Anxiety kicked in. Despite a gig offer coming through last night, I postponed accepting it - they wanted me to start this morning (about 12 hours notice) but I’m actually really feeling this...
dressing for an interview
Today would have been “How-To” Fashion Friday on The Seven: how to wear denim on denim; how to wear high-waist pants; how-to mix prints and patterns; etc, and I was going to dole that out here today. But an interview came through late yesterday afternoon so I thought “Dressing For an Interview” would be more appropriate. In the creative professions, an interview outfit...
The plus-side to no longer working 12-hour, 10-hour, not even eight-hour days is that I can keep up with my neglected home. First order of business, my stack of hats sitting atop my armoire. Now, I have a pretty big head (possibly half made of air, yes), and I have pretty big hair (it’s taken me years to accept that my hair isn’t just frizzy, it’s actually curly, and my curly...

how to pluck your eyebrows
I don’t have the answer to this. Daily Candy does today. It comes in handy seeing that I’ve cut back on eyebrow waxing the last few months (one of many unemployment compromises I started making in anticipation of this worst-case scenario actually hitting). But I’m honestly a low-maintenance girl (I’m way too clumsy to be high-maintenance). I didn’t start...
swinger chick, for life
Swingers. A classic, we all know this. It’s been relevant the last few days for many reasons. First, I was chatting with a Seven-mate a few days after cancellation and he was listing off the reasons I needed to join him for a movie - he was lonely, depressed, broke; a real catch. I told him he was “so money” and he didn’t even know it. Then (second), I realized...
once again, the end and the beginning
I’ve tried this before. And then I let it go. And then I tried it again. And then I forgot about it. And then the show I worked on got cancelled (I love The Seven) and all of my (now) former teammates started blogging. So now I’m regretting not keeping up with my blog attempts before. So I’m on tumblr now in hopes of starting anew (again). Leaving blogger behind. Trying to...
