a new look

So, I did a thing. (the blog reno, just so we’re clear) New theme, new colors, new vibe (sort of). I mean, I’m still going to bitch about online dating, gush over Harry Styles, discuss all things television, you know, the usual, so no need to worry. I played with the idea of totally changing the name of this space…

single gal speaks: don’t PMS & Bumble

I’ve been trying to write this for about two weeks now but I don’t know what to really say. Unlike my last post, where I didn’t know how to start it because I was so excited I just wanted to word vomit all over the screen, this one is a lot more personal. Ok, I’m being dramatic. It’s about online…

masters of lash

I’ve tried for a week to write this post but I’ve had a very hard time figuring out how to start it. I’ve been waiting for the stroke a genius to hit me, but quite frankly, I’m too excited to tell you guys about this so I’m just going to skip the cutesy intro and jump right in. Before Christmas,…

i’m more of a giver

Well, friends, we’ve reached that time after Christmas where every blogger, YouTuber, and humblebragger on social media is starting to share what they got for Christmas. Because I am more of a giver (and because I’m pre-writing this and Christmas hasn’t actually happened yet), I’m going to share a gift that I gave this year instead. Earlier in the month,…

screenshots, no chaser #5

I was cleaning out my screenshots folder on my phone and I realized that I had a ton of things (memes) that I meant to share on here. So, before they get too old and irrelevant, if they haven’t already, here are some that have made me blow air through my noise extra hard lately.

four.

I try to make it a habit of checking my on this day on Facebook every day. Most times it makes me cringe and facepalm all over the place because 2009-2013 (give or take) Martina was a real gem. Sometimes though, something will pop up that will make me smile or genuinely laugh. Today I was scrolling through and I…

weekend update: christmas shopping, light displays and historic houses

So, it’s Sunday night and I’m actually writing a weekend update post. Friday I took the day off of work so that I could uphold the tradition (and necessary evil) of going Christmas shopping with my mom, aunt, and cousins. When I say necessary evil, it’s the crowds and the pressure of getting it all done that I hate, not…

keeping up with martina

*insert same sorry i’ve abandoned this space again greeting* *insert next sentence about how i didn’t mean to be away this long but life got in the way and time just moves so fast when you’re an adult (or an “adult”)* Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I know I’ve been quiet here lately and the truth…

me too.

If you checked social media today, you probably saw people talking about the #metoo movement. Started by Alyssa Milano in response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal, it gives women an opportunity to share their stories about sexual harassment/assault. I’m sure you’ve heard of it. I didn’t want to post a “me too” status on Facebook because I don’t consider myself…
