If you need one more reason to love J.Crew, read this NY Times article about the company’s Creative Director and President, Jenna Lyons. She can turn a chambray shirt, glitter heels, thick-rimmed glasses and a trash bag into chic inspiration. But how does she do it? Teach me your ways.

Last night my mirror fell from the wall. At first I was worried that I would be cursed with 7 years bad luck, but as it turns out, only a small piece from my Ikea mirror chipped off.

Naturally, I used this mirror sprain as an excuse to seriously consider purchasing a replacement. I’ve had my eye on two mosaic mirrors from Pier One and  I may  be inclined to indulge.

I have thin hair. Like really thin hair. As my locks leave me stranded (pun intended), I have noticed that my hair feels a bit greasy after my daily showers, like my hair just can’t absorb all the goopiness of shampoo and conditioner.

So you know what I did? Wait for it, wait for it…

I nixed the conditioner and bought a light volumizing shampoo and my hair is looking strong as an ox. Is that an awkward comparison?

Thanks for being proud of me and my achievements.
