Have you ever built your own six-pack of beer? It's awesome for a multitude of reasons and exactly what I want to talk about this week. Why? Because I can do it at my grocery store and? It's awesome. It... Continue reading

I discovered a tumblr today that reimagines popular songs as sonnets, and I think it's a thing of beauty. It's called Pop Sonnet and it's exceptionally entertaining and well, makes me laugh. Check it out - but be warned, it's... Continue reading

I've been listening to this song since much earlier this year. But when I first heard it, I'm going to be honest, I wasn't sure if I should like it. It doesn't really fit what I normally listen to in... Continue reading

I don't know why I have felt like sharing more articles lately, and I don't plan to do this all the time, but this week is apparently Coffee Week at Fast Company and well, I love coffee. I can't start... Continue reading

So, today, I thought I would talk a little bit about IBU instead of looking at a new brew, just to spice it up a little bit. What is IBU? Well, it stands for International Bitterness Units and refers to... Continue reading

I'm a visual person by nature, as this morning's post about crafting probably indicates, and I especially love "day in the life" style blog posts and articles. It's fun to get a visual glimpse of a blogger or writer or... Continue reading

Before I begin this post, I just want to say I had a BLAST taking the above picture. Okay, so, Project Life and I have sort of a relationship going on. It's platonic, but I think we are both getting... Continue reading

Anyone who knows me well knows that I'm kind of a ketchup fanatic. I like it on fries, burgers, onion rings, chicken tenders, and occasionally scrambled eggs. Occasionally. Which is why I loved this article about my favorite ketchup -... Continue reading

Kathleen by Catfish and the Bottlemen is one of those fun, fast-paced, quick summery songs. This past week I spent more time listening to podcasts than the radio, so this was a song recommended by my husband that is now... Continue reading

I signed up for Birchbox at the end of June. I figured it was low-risk, I like samples, and for $10 a month, why not? So far, I have liked what I'm getting - lip colors, lotions, hair products, and... Continue reading

I caught myself reading this article on my lunch break today from The Atlantic and loved it so much I had to share. As PR is an industry many of my friends work in, I found it very interesting, especially... Continue reading

This lemony-yellow wheat beer looks like it would be one that is hoppy, but it is surprisingly light on the tongue with minimal bitterness. Upland Brewing Co's Wheat Ale is a refreshng beer that falls low on the bitterness scale.... Continue reading

I've been working a month behind on my Project Life albums, which I've been doing basically since, well, I started my 2014-2015 album. I found a deal from Snapfish where I'm printing most of my 4x6 pictures through them, and... Continue reading

I've been sort of jamming out to this song in the car whenever I hear it come on my XM radio. It's catchy and upbeat and well, it just fits the season. I'm not normally a seasonal music person (I'll... Continue reading

Sometimes when it's the weekend, you have plans to take a couple cats to the vet for vaccines. They, like you, want to stay in their carrier, curled up where it's warm. This is for optimum napping. Or hiding from... Continue reading

I didn't have summer reading lists growing up. I was a homeschooled kid who loved reading and summer reading lists involved going to the library and checking out a lot of books to read between trips outdoors to play, popsicles,... Continue reading

It's no real secret that I really like ales. I have a thing for amber ales and pale ales. I just like the hoppy aromas that you get out of most ale varieties. This weeks' brew was really just up... Continue reading

I realized recently that it's been a little while since I did a Project Life update - at least since I started my second album! I'm currently running about a month behind, but I'm OK with that - I was... Continue reading

When I was looking for some music to look at this week, after a feverish weekend (Literally, I had a fever a good chunk of this weekend and am not 100% yet), Allen suggested I try out The Griswolds "Beware... Continue reading

When you tell people you plan to get a pixie cut, you'll hear quite a few things, from "Oh that'll look great!" to "Nooooo I love your hair long!" as well as "But what if you regret it?" You may... Continue reading

We're almost through another week - and this week has been extra fall-like, which is excellent if you're like me and not a fan of super steamy days. It also makes looking at a seasonal brew a little odd, but... Continue reading

I'm not really a lipstick person, but lately I've really been into lip crayons - like Clinique's Chubby Sticks or Revlon's Balm Stain crayons. I'm not sure about you, but I know my big issue with applying lipstick is going... Continue reading

This song by Sylvan Esso has grown on me quickly - it reminds me of music by Regina Spektor and Imogen Heap with a hint of Bjork thrown in for good measure. The mix of electronic with the lilt of... Continue reading

It's time to start a new series! Now that we're two weeks away from the Bunbury Festival, I thought I would start a weekly series looking at the brews I love the most: beer, coffee, and tea! Since it's summer,... Continue reading

There is something exceptionally catchy about the Bleachers (with Jack Antonoff, of Fun.) song "I Wanna Get Better." I've been hearing it more and more as the album release was just a few days ago, and while I haven't listented... Continue reading
