Beauty Junk Round-Up: Maple Holistics Argan Oil Shampoo

Happy 2018! I feel like I’ve heard a lot of people lament about how 2017 was a crazy, hard year with everything going on in the world (just how they lamented 2016 was hard). I’ve got news for ya: it’s not gonna get any better. Things will still be rocky politically, and Kim Jong-Un and…

Beauty Junk Round-Up: Maple Holistics Tea Tree Oil Shampoo

Hello hello hello! Look at me, getting back to blogging on a regular basis! #humblebrag For those of you who used to read That’s What She Said or One Random B, you may know I periodically had a feature called, “Beauty Junk Roundup” where I reviewed various beauty products (makeup, skin care, hair care –…

IT for Thirty-Something Women

Last weekend, my sister and I saw the IT remake. And while I didn’t particularly care for the snooze fest that was the book (it’s called editing, Stephen, ever heard of it?), I thoroughly enjoyed this reboot.  For those of you living under a rock and/or who hadn’t been traumatized by Tim Curry’s Pennywise as…

Wedding Details

I thought I would share a bit about my wedding here, since I’ve been M.I.A. from blogging for years, and when I finally do get back into it, I’m all, “I’m married lolz!” So here’s a bit about what went down, and why we decided to elope.  T and I got engaged back in March,…

Feelin’ 33

Earlier today, a colleague of mine and I got into a discussion about all of the shit that goes south once you hit 30. It was spurred by my decision to abstain from alcohol and sugar after 5p.m. on weekdays and exercising more regularly, because I’ll sleep like butt otherwise. Then I watched the music…

A Life Update

So, I’m back. I feel like I’ve posted a ton of these “I’m back” posts before, and I’m hoping this will be the last one due to regularly scheduled blogging. Basically, I’ve been M.I.A. since I decided to go back to grad school. I’ve checked in here and there, but all but abandoned my passion…

[my first sprint triathlon, or, that time my bike failed me]

Two weeks ago, I completed my first sprint triathlon. The difference between a sprint tri and a regular tri is the distance required for each portion. While distances vary with each race, the below is a general rule of thumb (courtesy of TotalTriathlon.com): Sprint Tri  Swim: 0.5 mile Bike: 12.4 miles Run: 5K   Regular Tri…

What the Zodiac Killer Can Teach Us About Marketing Ourselves

I have a confession to make: I love true crime. I listen to true crime podcasts, I watch Investigation Discovery, and if I see a true crime documentary on Netflix that looks even remotely interesting, I’ll watch it. It’s part morbid curiosity, and part fascination with the psychological aspects of true crime stories that draws me to…

To Snap, or not to Snap? That is the Question.

I’ll be honest: as a social media user, I absolutely abhor Snapchat. I’ve tried the platform only two times; both of those times, I found the interface not intuitive or user-friendly. Blame it on its predecessors, Facebook, Twitter, hell – even MySpace – that have conditioned me to see some sort of a user feed where I…
