Coco is out of it

So the little one is now a year old and we’ve been battling the baby flu. Poor kid, first official sickness. She looks so out of it here. I’ve been battling my studies and also my skill set. And frizzy hair, but we won’t talk about that for long. I seriously declare that I am […]

Talk to the hand

Little Miss Coco and I have been traveling since last week and we are now in Fallon, NV. We started our journey in the Bay area on Saturday, renting a charming little Ford Fiesta (!) and then continuing onto Reno and then to Fallon. I’m typing this on the Dell (pfffft!) that I am borrowing […]

featherlashes

Here’s a video from Ardell lashes on how to apply strip lashes. It covers the basics. It’s time for some links and some random thoughts. It’s day two of daycare and I’m scrambling to work on different school projects. I found out that I have to tend to the Incomplete class that I left last […]

Mom’s Day Off

My favorite hair

Yesterday was quite a day in this household! It was the first day that Coco has been in daycare and it felt so surreal because of the calm quiet in the house. I’m sitting here typing this and realized that I might actually catch up on my studies. It’s been a partially barren wasteland here […]

Identity Crisis

Scary mommy, indeed

Rather than post the usual links without commentary, I’m going to address something that’s been going on as of late. Right now I’m sitting here listening to British Sea Power and I feel like a fraud. Yeah, I do. I’ve been into beauty since I was a little girl and have been an officially licensed […]

Academy Award 2012 Looks

Rooney Mara Oscars 2012

I don’t have cable television so we watched the Oscars on Sunday night via Oscar.com streaming behind the scenes online. Another confession to make is that out of the nominees, I only saw the Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris. There were other movies that intended to see, but it just didn’t happen with baby. […]
