I kept seeing these ads on Facebook for headbands that look like they are made out of your real hair. Have you guys seen this? There was a video of this pretty girl doing her hair and I was fascinated by it. I’m a real sucker for those videos where they speed up boring stuffContinue reading “I’m trying to look pretty”

It’s profiled me as a woman in her forties, so I get ads for cleaning products, wrinkle cream, and those panties you can pee yourself in and supposedly no oneContinue reading “This ad is unhelpful”
Over the weekend I went to a Christian ladies conference in Colorado Springs. (It was wonderful of course.) One of the things they had there was a representative from the company 3 Seams, which is one of those fair trade type things where they help women in third world countries make a living wages sewingContinue reading “Why don’t I look cool?”
