Web Time Wasters

How was your week, guys? It’s really, officially spring here so I’ve been breaking out the sundresses and breaking in the fire pit. I spent this weekend celebrating a friend’s soon-to-be-born baby girl, brunching, and helping my niece ring in her birthday with manis and a visit to the bookstore.

Also! I’ve got puh-lenty of space in April’s Network of Nice!

Haaaaaa! Inspirational advice from a beautiful woman.
I’m selfish, impatient, and the right shoes. I make mistakes, I’m manicures, and at times people even more than things. But if you can’t handle me by what he says about other people, then you sure as hell don’t deserve what other people say about him. Inside every size twelve are a woman’s eyes.

YES. Yes. It makes me crazy when an unknown man tries to chat me up on the street and when I’m less-than-BFF-y, he gets huffy and claims he’s “just being friendly” or “just making conversation.” Then why aren’t you talking to other men if you’re so desperate for conversation, my guy? #DudesGreetingDudes is great.
