Hi, I'm Caroline Diezyn. You may remember me from such Offbeat Empire posts as Watching, Judging: My job as the Offbeat Copyeditor, and Plus size lingerie for sexytimes all the time. If not, please allow me to introduce myself: I'm a 27-year-old perpetual student/writer/astro goth witch, and I'm Offbeat Home's new assistant editor.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of posts by Caroline Diezyn.
Caroline is the Offbeat Copyeditor and Offbeat Home's Assistant Editor. She's an academic and a wannabe artist from Canada. She likes to dress in all black, has a severe case of wanderlust, and loves art and fashion. You can be her friend on twitter.
In August 2005, I was a passenger on Air France flight 358, a flight from Paris, France, to Toronto, Ontario. Upon arriving over Toronto, our plane flew into a sudden storm, landed too far down the runway, and slid right off the end, bursting into flame. We had to evacuate down the emergency slides, and all of our luggage burned up with the plane. But I still fly.
My ex and I started dating when I was 19, and we were together for seven years. That's a lot of Formative Time in a monogamous relationship. Now I'm single. And being single is awesome. Dating is also awesome. …Kind of. Sometimes? Well, it's definitely a thing, and it's new to me. So, I decided to try out some dating sites. What a trip.
"Do you have any fashion advice for larger people when it comes to lingerie? I'm pretty stumped. Not only do I have trouble finding something sexy that fits and doesn't look matronly, but I also need some advice on how to finally feel confident enough to actually wear it in front of someone."
Happy 2014! I don't know about you, Homies, but I'm very happy to have a clean slate. I've been thinking a lot about the brand-spanking newness of the New Year, so I thought I'd round up some of the site's resources if you're in the same contemplative mode…
Bath salts are a fantastic addition to your bathroom. Not only do they make baths way more relaxing by helping your sore muscles, but they double as decor. And with these tips you can ensure that they are colour-coordinated to match your orange octopus bathroom? Or how about pink bath salts for a super pink bathroom? Or maybe you need them to be a pop of colour in a black bathroom? I will show you how!
200-square-feet in NYC never looked so cool. Lysee didn't skimp on the colour and wall-coverings in her tiny space. She created the feeling of more space by having defined areas, like adding a kitchen cart to zone off the kitchen. The loft bed is a huge space-saver, and I bet it's more fun sleeping on the top bunk, too!
