Keep it Simple, Silly

Keep it Simple, Silly

With all the paintings, knick-knacks, and brightly colored toys in my daughter’s room, it’s a wonder she can actually sleep. Combine that with the busy crib bedding patterns that most stores sell, and it’s overstimulation central in there. Instead of...

Show me a woman who can resist one of those Cosmo-style “what type are you?” quizzes, and I’ll show you a man in drag.Which means women are going to love the jewelry from independent San Francisco jewelry designer Kim Shephard at her online boutique,...

Life is Good in the Sack

As I prepare for the arrival of #2, the memories of newborn-domare sneaking back up on me. I distinctly remember bumbling around in the wee hours of the morning trying to change a diaper and resnap the dreaded baby onesie as quickly as possible so not to lose any...

The Princess Who Rocks
