In March, I broke out a basic apron sewing pattern, used some old demin fabric and sewed my own; Its been my companion ever since. That and my bra. Read more

Having not worn a bra now for the vast majority of the pandemic, my (too big not to sag but too small to be impressive) 40E chest can no longer handle underwires or padding. My Rago longline bras are ok, but I’m starting to consider getting rid of my collection of pretty push up bras entirely. Read more

In repose, my bosom lacks pep; rather than two beautiful grapefruits floating aloft on my solar plexus, they more closely resemble those grapefruits encased in a tube sock and left to hang free. Read more

I mean, sure there’s some societal messaging but let’s be real, way less of it now than even 10 or 20 years ago. When you look at models and most actresses, they tend to be on the small side. And famous women with big breasts are relegated to the ‘sexy’ category and/or not taken seriously, unless they downplay their Read more

Tip for any small/medium sized ladies who like a bra but don’t need a ton of support. My breasts are not particularly notable in size - thirdlove calls me b and a half, so somewhere between a large b and not quite a c by traditional sizing. Even without large breasts, I don’t like the feeling of being without some Read more

My favorite bras are structured bralettes. As in, the cups are made of this stiff soft material. I have two, one from Athleta and one from VS, and I love them both. My boobs just plop out of regular bralettes, but with these two particular bras, they retain their boob shape and provide a nipple cocoon. They don’t lift Read more

The ‘we’re just folks’ approach started with Victoria and then really took off under George V when there were pesky rebellions overthrowing other monarchies. Read more

I broke out my lounger yesterday! I have almost this identical chair from Lowe’s (solid $99 purchase!!), except instead of cupholder, i have a small folding metal outdoor side table I bought from Target; mine also has a slightly nicer footrest. I’ve been working from home for 3 years, and splurged on this in the first Read more

I love press-ons and wear them roughly 90% of the time. This is probably the longest I’ve gone without in years. I haven’t been able to see the point but I am sorely tempted and might put on a set tonight. Read more

My podiatrist always told me that more people should leave their feet alone for at least few months of the year — that we have cuticles for a reason, pedicures aren’t always necessarily great on your feet, and it’s okay just to let your toenails “breathe” for a bit. I imagine the same logic applies to fingernails.  Read more

Love a French manicure.  When I was in junior high, fake nails were very popular.  I remember a girl in our class had red ones and I would remark on how perfect her nails were.  One of my friends let me know they were fake.  I remember begging my mom for for a set; she said no.  Later on I bought myself a knock off Read more

I had enough foresight to squeeze in my last mani pedi and had to argue with the staff NOT to do gel this time. I knew I wouldn’t be back. So....I really suck at doing my own nails, however....I got some extra tools to help me do a proficient job at home, and QUICK DRY EVERYTHING - and that is making all the Read more

Doing a peel (or just regular preventative maintenance with a foot file) won’t make the thicker, tougher areas of the soles of your feet suddenly thin and delicate like the skin of your inner arm. It just removes the crusty, ugly, potentially-cracked-and-painful outer layer of dead skin cells. The part that looks Read more

Sorry, but I will never feel the same way about vegan cheese that I do about these thighs and I’m fine with that!
