To all those beautiful offbeat girlies that have perfect skin… I am a 26-year-old and still have acne. I recently went off my birth control pills in order to make some off-kilter spawn and now my skin looks like I have the plague! My skin was pretty good on the pill, but now that I’m off, these painful little bastards are seriously putting a cramp in my style. I’ve got my foot out the door to the dermatologist, but before I go… Help!
If you’re a perfume junkie but tired of wearing the same scents as everyone else with access to Bloomingdales, maybe it’s time you learned to make your own bottle of perfume. The good news: it’s really easy to do and if you already know what your favorite ingredients are, you’re set.
After my baby was born, I lost about half my hair. Apparently this isn’t uncommon, even though nothing I read forewarned me about it. Now its growing back, though, and my face is framed by a halo/ruff/mane of little half curls. They’re too short to be pulled back, too numerous to be clipped back, and it’s too hot to wear my hair down.
Do y’all remember ZOMG Smells from when we talked about them last fall? Well, I just happened to get my hands on a few samples of their brand spanking new ZOMG SOAPS. Needless to say, these soaps smell amazing — with names like Baby Unicorn Party and Dr. Zomg’s Superlative Polytonic Mira-suds, you know they’re at least going to smell interesting. But even better, SOME OF THEM ARE SPARKLY.
Come with me as I do my detailed testing right here in my bathroom.
If you’ve ever wanted rainbow colored hair but didn’t want to submit yourself to hours of bleaching and dye, get ready to squeal: you can use chalk pastels to put rainbow streaks in your tresses. YES. This is real!
My daughter, Olivia, came home from her preschool and announced she needed to have long hair to be “pretty” and it wouldn’t hurt if I could put her in a dress for school. Initially I didn’t think much of that comment, but it bothered me. So I shaved my head to show her that prettiness wasn’t about long hair.

Happy Monday, Homies! Good to see you back. In this week’s photos we have a lot of fantasy, and in this week’s Clicky Links there’s a lot of helpful hints.
Here are three things I really, really love: holidays, geeky stuff, and gifts. I love giving gifts and receiving gifts and in general just having an awesome time with gifts — especially if they’re remotely geeky in general. Here are some of my favorite things I’ve found online — I felt like I couldn’t possibly pass up the chance to share them with ya! Some are kid-specific, and some are for adults, and some are just… for whoever loves them the most.
