The sponsored series of events included attending a Football Kickoff Party, a Baby Shower, a Carnival, a Spongebob Birthday Party, a Rock Star Party, a Halloween Party, an Oscar Worthy Movie Night and a Girls Night-In Party. Whew, I am exhausted but…

My Life (and Death) with Laundry



By Kristin Fast, Lifestyle Editor and In-House Wit-Cracker

With the rare exception, I do a load or two of laundry everyday… every. Single. Day. We are a family of 5, with two of those five being teenage boys… (teenage boys will wear three shirts in one day, but the same pair of pants for a week) which I am sure makes it clearer why I am engaged in a…

Dot Girl's First Period Kit

I have two little girls and I am dreading (I should say, embracing) the moment when they reach that time in their lives when they leave the innocence of childhood to enter the ever changing  (I’m talking hormones) woes of womanhood.

Ah, puberty. I remember the not-so-pleasant experience of getting my first period at school. I think that I remember wearing white…

Hail to the Handwritten Note



By some standards, handwriting is already considered an “ancient” skill. Next thing we’ll know, it will be an extinct art form practiced by only a few artisans. Well, not in my lifetime if I have anything to do with it! These days, the charm of receiving a handwritten note is manifest (any handwriting will…

Inspired Infused Vodka

Always on the lookout for interesting “indie” brands in all categories, we thought it would be fun to pay tribute to another type of art, that is, the art of fine booze-making. Micro-distilleries, like micro-breweries have become more and more popular in the last decade. With reason. Many of these micro-distilleries make award-winning vodkas, far superior in taste and quality to the commercial brands. But, since award-winning in the vodka world pretty…

Girl's Night In

By Lisa Hughes Anderson - Guest Contributor

Sometimes it takes getting away to come back to yourself again.

What better way to raise your spirits than to spend a carefree night with good friends. I suggest an old fashioned sleepover, just like we use to do as kids. Gather up the girlfriends and host a night in pj’s and sweats. Order pizzas,…

6 Tips for Friendlier Skies



By Kristin Fast, Lifestyle Editor and In-House Wit-Cracker

There was a time when traveling on an airplane was the height of sophistication…

Today, not so much.  Air travel is merely another form of transit. It is usually the fastest way to get from Point A to Point B and in some cases, the only reasonable way to…

24 Outfits with One Dress and One Pair of Shoes

I have been invited to a weekend away. My only fashion requirements are a bathing suit (yikes!), a bathing suit cover up (whew), a sundress for dinner out and a casual skirt for sightseeing. I pulled out all my clothing requirements with accessories and realized that I was going to need a bigger suitcase.

I resent having to pay to check luggage – and the wait to retrieve it at the carousel – and every other nickel and diming the airlines have had to resort to, especially when I’m just…

After Jean realized that her mother-in-law was not just judging people but was, in fact, correct in her opinion of them, she continued her studies with notable teachers in the ancient Chinese principles of face reading.

Workout Gear to Fancy this Spring

Finally, days are getting longer and, though I hate the feeling of losing an hour, Daylight Savings time (March 13) means that there will be light when working out in the wee hours of the morning. Just enough to make those early bird workouts somewhat less painful. So, if like me, you are looking forward to hitting the pavement instead of the treadmill, we thought that you would enjoy these particular finds:…
