Fall is in the air, y’all! Or it’s getting closer to you (we’re winking at you Florida)! It’s time to pull out your tan & fleece lined booties and snuggly soft leggings so you can head to the local cafe and order a PSL.
Does all of this sound a bit foreign to you? Read on my friends, and join the ‘dark side’ that is… BASIC. By the end of this article you will have channeled your Inner Basic just in time for this for this cold weather season.
Everyone can embrace their Inner Basic. All you have to do is follow these simple steps:
4 Awesomely Inexpensive Things to Do This 4th of July!
The Fourth of July is my favorite day of the whole year! Why, you ask? Well, friends, that would be because the greatest country in the world and I share a birthday! Yes, yes! And what kind of birthday would it be without some fun, cheap (and even free!) activities to do? Take a look at some of the activities I plan on doing this year!
You’re at the grocer and get in line to check out with your three items. You glance up at the guest in front of you to get an idea of how much longer you will be waiting in line, all the while tempted by the woeful wall of candies and chocolate. It’s a couponer. Not just a one or two coupons (snagged off the pasta box while in line) either. But a bonafide binder-in-hand, ten of each item, total is going to go from $762.89 to $33 with gift cards after coupons – Couponer. All the while, you’re thinking to yourself, “ain’t nobody got time for that” or “why must you pick today of all days for your haul, when I just needed milk, coffee and goldfish crackers.”
The countdown to the infamous Valentine’s Day, a day for cheap chocolates and wilted roses, has begun. But what if, this year could be different? What if, this time you won the mad V-Day rush and came out on top with the best gift your guy or gal could ask for? Oh, it’s possible. No, a string quartet and a diamond ring worthy of the Titanic are necessary. (more…)
The O word. Nope, not the one you’re thinking about, the other one; organic. What exactly does organic mean? That seems to be the question of the hour nowadays with the world of health and wellness going head-to-head with the food and Franken-food industry. Yep, frankenfood, it’s a word – look it up.
Meal planning. You may have overheard the soccer mom mafia talk about it or maybe come across a mouth watering photo montage of meat and veggies on Pinterest. Either way, meal planning is a thing, and it’s a nifty game changer at that, once you’ve mastered it.
Ah Brunch! A simple word that can wear the cloak of verb, noun or even adjective if you tried hard enough.. “OMG that cocktail is so brunch!” But the question of where to, how and when not to brunch always comes to mind. If one does brunch, where do you go? How do you know that’s where you should go? Can you bring your dog? What about the kids? I mean, really, who knew a non-shalant trip to the local watering hole for pancakes would turn into such a cultural plague of social cues and what-to-do’s.
Have no fear, we are here to “brunch” it down.. See what we did there?
Genetically Modified Organisms. Also known as GMOs, with a silent and unmistakeable taboo that surrounds them. But why? What exactly are they, and why are they all of a sudden the “bees knees” in the news, the grocery store and your box of Frosted Flakes in the cupboard?
