Wantable – Intimates Box

By Monday, November 24, 2014 0 Permalink 0

By now you've come to know my love of Stitch Fix boxes. What you don't know is how often I buy things online. Working from home (both with my old job, and with my current) allows me to be home for all of the shipments (and darn signatures that UPS enforces). Not sure if it is laziness or convenience, but I truly enjoy trying items on in the comfort of my own home, especially shoes! I often buy 2 sizes from Zappos so I can try them on as I stand at my desk during the day to determine comfort. I'm also curious about all of ...

New Music Tuesday – Rise Against – The Black Market – And the Colorado Connection

By Wednesday, July 16, 2014 0 Permalink 0

While Rise Against isn't a Colorado band, they do have many ties to this great state. Did you know that many of their last albums were recorded right here in Fort Collins, Colorado in the Blasting Room? Well, they were. A few years ago I had the pleasure of going to a 'secret' show of theirs where they played in local clothing store, Kansas City Kitty. The store moved all of their merchandise to the sides, or put away in the back and a line started outside the store before they even closed at 5. I remember it was a pretty cold night, so my parents ...

Google+ Hangout With Juan, SomeAudioGuy, to Talk Noiselace Earplug Necklaces!

By Thursday, July 3, 2014 0 Permalink 0

My last live video chat was with Huffington Post about No 'Poo, and was a little more stressful than my chat yesterday with Juan, but I think I'm getting the hang of it! Juan, SomeAudioGuy and SomeGadgetGuy online, and I met at the magical FireFly Music Festival a few weeks ago and hit it off immediately! Mainly because we tweeted pre-festival about bringing ear plugs. Easy to get along with someone else who wants to protect their ears! We were going to do a video interview at FireFly, but ran out of time as we were running around trying to see all of the bands. So instead we ...

New LinkedIn Contacts – Getting into the CRM Game?

By Monday, March 24, 2014 1 Permalink 0

When I logged into LinkedIn this morning, I was surprised to be introduced to and walked through a new feature - LinkedIn Contacts! If you don't get the prompts, or have already hit 'skip' on them, here's what it looks like. When viewing a profile you now have '*Relationship' and 'Contact Info' tabs below the profile image: (P.S. Yes, Jonathon and I didn't even connect on LinkedIn until we were married.) Personally I love being able to see the exact date I became linked with someone. Think about it - how often have you thought to yourself "Where did I meet this person? What conference? What year?" etc. Now ...

Stitch Fix Box Number Five

By Tuesday, January 28, 2014 1 Permalink 0

I received this last Stitch Fix box on Christmas Even while Jonathon and I were back visiting his mom, so it took me a little while to unbox my fix, try everything on, and decide on what I wanted. Being that it was over the holidays meant that it also took even longer for me to get it up on the blog! This was the first box that after trying everything on one time, I almost kept the entire box. So here is what I got: Mystree Edson Knit Sweater Coat 41Hawthorn Mickey Jeweled Collar Peplum Top 41Hawthorn Liandra Geo Knit Infinity Scarf Renee C Byron Fold-Over Cowl Knit Shirt Fraiche by ...

DIY – Ugly Sweater Skirt for an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

By Monday, December 9, 2013 0 Permalink 0

This weekend we were invited to an Ugly Sweater Christmas party. It's been years since I attended one, and neither Jon or I had anything to wear. I went to Target, Kmart and Walmart hoping to stumble upon a great sweater to wear, but had no such luck. Of course I found some online, but it was too late to order. Finally I saw a great idea online: a sweater skirt! While I may be crafty, I am certainly not one that can use a sewing machine, which made this particular DIY skirt that much better. A Tree Skirt! Worn as an actual skirt! Brilliant! So my ...
