I’m so excited and happy to report that this is my 400th post since starting this blog May 2011. I’m eternally grateful for all of you spending your time reading this! It means so much to me. Take a look at my 300th,

It seems like all I’m doing lately is planning, planning, planning. Parties, work events, blog stuff, etc. I’m making today the official Get Back on Track [...]
I am nervous excited to report that my little blog is upgrading to bigger and better things. I don’t know or understand all the details yet but I’ve put my sister (Sad Robots) at the helm and trust her completely. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come:
I never have a lot of faith in things delivered in pen form (other than ink, I suppose). They tried putting white-out in pens and it always got clogged. Lip gloss pens can leave giant drops of pink on your white dress. However, LAQA & Co. might be on to something with [...]

The ones I like the best are too expensive, or they’re vintage and only one is available, or the reasonably priced ones are all humongous, etc. ad infinitum. I’m thrilled to report, however, that I picked up a random business card, went to the [...]
At work, I use Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. multiple times a day, sometimes for hours at a time. If there’s one thing I wish I could do sometimes it’s slide letters this way and that because of the deplorable kerning you get from these applications sometimes. Here’s a game that allows you to do just [...]
Well over a year ago, one of my favorite Etsy sellers, cricicis, designed this picture of my doggie, Julia! I was looking at it again today and it’s really something. She perfectly captures Julia’s dignity and serenity.
Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else. I started this blog as a way to showcase the best of Dayton (as seen through my perspective) and also to share some of the things that occupy space in my mind, namely beauty, home decor, quotes, and various aspects of my life.
