    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 but first, I didn’t know how and second, meh. this is still “me” right now. Who knows what the future will bring. Do you love it? I still have a couple of things to iron out, but basically, This Is Us.. I mean it. This is it! I needed a…

    oh, go google yourself!

    We all do it. It’s perfectly natural. Some people do it daily, some only feel the need occasionally. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes a total disaster. I’m talking about Googling yourself, ya pervs. Every so often, after I’m finished stalking everyone I went to high school with, former flames new fiancees, and people who look vaguely familiar, I head over to the Google and type my name in. As Google loads, I’m always silently praying for a scandal. Not a huge one, just one like Harry Styles rumored gal pal, Martina Cziraky, is seen leaving his NYC hotel looking comfortably rumpled. Martina is a [wildly successful] blogger from Brooklyn and has…

    myspace (survey) monday

    I was scrolling through my Bloglovin’ feed and came across this survey from my fellow survey lover, Jessie. I figured I’d do it also because, why not. They may be boring for you, but I love them! Let’s get started! Guilty pleasure:¬†I don’t have many, but Keeping Up with the Kardashians is a big one. The fact that I watch it is my best/worst kept secret, next to this blog. Fave show to watch:¬†Anything light. I love a good reality show. As far as series, I love Jane the Virgin, I miss season 1 & 2 of Gossip Girl because it pretty much went to shit after that, I think…

    blog reno- done!

    Ok, so, the colors don’t totally match, and it’s still a bit rough around the edges, but my blog renovation is complete! I couldn’t choose a specific color scheme so I figured the rainbow watercolor would work. And I kept some glitter since it’s my favorite color. I like it and that’s what matters, right? I’ll be on sometime during the week. I’m getting there, guys. Tell me what you think! (unless you don’t like it. keep that to yourself.)

    two hundred

    I didn’t plan on posting anything today because I’m too busy freaking out over this Winter Storm Jonas that’s barreling towards the Northeast as we speak. So much for a warm winter. Anyway, I signed on to WordPress and noticed that I had 199 published posts, making this my 200th! Two hundred posts in two years – not too shabby. Considering I seriously doubted this blog living to see it’s 6 month birthday. Maybe I am growing up, after all. It’s officially snowing now so I have to crawl into bed and not come out until Spring. CAN WE HAVE A SNOWLESS WINTER JUST ONCE??

    last post of 2015!

    Last night I got an email from Jetpack/Wordpress with my 2015 overview for this blog. Since I shared it last year, I figured I’d share it again this year. It seems they’ve done it a bit differently this year and it won’t just show up in a new post, I’ll have to share the link. Anyway, here it is if you’re interested! Martina’s Blog Summary for 2015 That Isn’t That Much Different Than 2014, But It’s A New Year, Which Means Anything Is Possible If I don’t get back here before the ball drops, I hope everyone has a happy, safe and healthy new year! You guys don’t know how…
