Random Story Time – Island Pilots

Once after finishing a modeling gig, I had to fly out of St. Thomas on a small plane. That sounds a bit glamorous and spectacular, but really, I was a girl who most days played a waitress, and I’d just made a couple of grand in a week, and I knew I wouldn’t be able…

The Misexpectations Travel Blog

I had grand plans for vacation. As I packed, I photographed every item I brought, because I thought I’d blog my packing list and how I wound up wearing it. I thought I was doing one of my best packing jobs ever.  On vacation I want to be as sexy everyday as I wish I…

Liebsterfest.

As I mentioned previously, I have been nominated for a Liebster Award by Kelley from Another Novel Read. This is my first blog award ever, so I don’t even care if she nominated me mostly because we have similar taste in hair and a constitution that even Wowriot can’t kill. 🙂 Now, there is no…

Travel Makeover – On The Train to Austin, Blue Eyeliner

I’m not really good at doing makeup, but I am good at doing makeup on trains and planes and roadtrips. I think I’m best with limited tools. I’m on Amtrak to Austin to see Beachhouse and The Walkmen at Stubbs. Everything I used: -A kit from Kristen Colaneri’s line that I got forever ago for…

Pictures About Cars and Driving

I really do have a thing about cars and driving. I’ve been known to make cracks about The Beach Boys writing more songs about cars than girls, but I am fully aware of the degree of which I get swept up in the mythology of a car. Its not the status symbol of a car;…
