Frivolous Friday

Frivolous Friday: La Croix

I’ve always loved bubbles. And while my favorite way to get my bubbly fix is with Champagne, that isn’t practical on a daily basis, especially with your lunch at work. Even at a wine store, we’re not really supposed to actually drink on the job. I know, my life is SO HARD. Enter La Croix, […]

Frivolous Friday: Take Care of Your Feet!

I’ve spent most of my working life on my feet.  You’d think I’d be thinner, but unfortunately I love to eat and drink so much all the standing, walking, and schlepping cases of wine up and down stairs merely keeps me looking average.  Probably if I cut back my french fry and rose consumption even […]

Frivolous Friday: An Oldie But Goodie

Despite the fact that without adult supervision, I could spend an entire afternoon and half my paycheck at Sephora, I’m often super lazy about grooming and maintenance. You should see my roots. OK, let’s be real here, they’re not even roots anymore, my hair is just gray. Some days even showering seems like a boring […]

Frivolous Friday: My Office

Frivolous Friday: Smell Like the Beach

It’s no secret I have kind of a…thing about perfume. I’ve shown the crazy sample vial collection before, but just in case: Frightening, I know. So when I ordered a sample pack from indie perfumer Olivine Atelier, I thought I’d just try them out and move on, but when I smelled Amongst the Waves, it […]

Frivolous Friday: Smell Like A Fancy Resort

In my continued quest to be a fancy lady, a couple of months ago I purchased this delicious body oil from MoroccanOil, the company that became kind of a culty favorite for its hair oil. The hair products are nice, don’t get me wrong, but they’re not that great when it comes to actual hair […]

Frivolous Friday: the Joys of Oribe

You know what’s annoying?  When a friend goes on and on about some expensive product she’s using, claiming it’ll change your life, or at least your hair/eyelashes/whatever, and you avoid it for months, thinking it couldn’t possibly be worth the money.  Then you spend the night at her house and use it in the morning, […]
