Gone to BlogHer…Come to the Bloganthropy Panel!

Gone to BlogHer…Come to the Bloganthropy Panel!

Debbie and I are heading off to BlogHer this week. If you will be at BlogHer, please find us and say, “hello”! Most bloggers probably know Debbie from her popular and informative speeches at conferences (she hasn’t seen this…so I can brag about her here). I, on the other hand, rarely go to events…so I am VERY excited to see lots of people I know from online. Drop me a line on this post so … Read entire article »

There is no doubt that his model looks great in this … Read entire article »

Project Runway Season 10: Episode 2 – Annie Get Your Glue Gun

Project Runway Season 10: Episode 2 – Annie Get Your Glue Gun

Well, it is the famous “unconventional materials” challenge on Project Runway Season 10. Or, as it has been come to be known lately, the “Glue Junk On” challenge. I kid. I kid because I love. The remaining 15 head off to Dylan’s Candy Bar which, O-M-Gee you just have to see to believe! I have to admit, though, that after my initial squeal of delight, I thought: “They are just going to hot-glue the candy on like … Read entire article »

What Stains Drive You Crazy?

What Stains Drive You Crazy?

My little boys are high energy; they zoom from one activity to the next without stopping for a breath. My older son loves soccer, which is a wonderful way to keep active, but terrible for keeping his clothes clean. Everything winds up with a grass or mud stain. The clothes that manage to escape the mud and grass get stained at lunch! Removing grass stains without fading the clothing is a big task, which is why … Read entire article »

Project Runway Season 10 Episode 1 Recap: Granny Fabrics and Snuggies

Project Runway Season 10 Episode 1 Recap: Granny Fabrics and Snuggies

So, can I just say, “wow”? Wasn’t the premier of Season 10 of Project Runway a whole lot of fun? I mean, yes, I am a rabid fangurl who writes for a subsite owned by the host television network but STILL. After 10 seasons (plus All Stars), I am capable of seeing the show objectively in its ups and downs and occasionally uneven glory. And this was GOOD TV and FUN FASHION, no? So, in this episode, … Read entire article »
