has had the same headache for a week straight

Sorry I haven't posted lately. I've been having unbearable muscle pain in my neck and shoulder (thanks in part to a 13 month old who refuses to walk) combined with horrible tension headaches.

I self diagnosed and am also self-medicating......Hubby took the girls for lunch today so I could take a brief nap and also went to CVS to pick up Excedrin Tension, which works but only for 4-6 hours. I'm also taking a prescription I got a couple months back when I had some x-rays done for the neck/shoulder pain. I'm a little concerned though because after further research it turns out that the pill is an anti-depressant and also used to help with bed wetting.....WTF?!?!

Here's to better days.......


wore my Worishofers again!

I think I've worn these sandals for two weeks straight since they've arrived in the mail.
Perfect height, perfect neutral color and perfect combo of cute/ugly.

(Disclaimer - I did see a little old Polish lady in Coney Island with the same pair. Obviously she has great taste and values comfort as well)

What do you think?


went to Coney Island!

We go to Brooklyn frequently but this was our family's first trip to Coney Island.
What a perfect way to spend Labor Day, eating Nathan's hot dogs, riding the attractions at the 90 year old Wonder Wheel Amusement Pier and walking along the beach....

it's really fun with tons of options to tweak your photos


needs a new skincare regimen

A few of my current skincare products are running out and I don't think I'll be repurchasing them. They've worked well enough but I'm ready to find something I truly love....

What I'm retiring:

Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate
I would try the night cream or the cream serum versions
from the Genifique line
(mostly because I'm a sucker for clinical data)

Philosophy The Great Mystery - 1 Minute Facial
It has a great scent and is convenient to use in the shower.
However, I haven't noticed any improvements in my skin.

What I'm coveting:

What are your miracle products? What do you recommend?


is starting to rethink White House Black Market

Never shopped there before
Never wanted to shop there before

I recently saw these and feel like my world's been turned upside down

Need them
Want them
