  1. Kat, with all of bad behaving men in the news, Grandma Leyeh reminded me of an age old remedy, and advertisement she had found for keeping her men in line years ago. Here is a link. It is hilarius, and I recomend we all stock up and use $exueal Temperance Spoons” on our men when they get to frisky! YAY!


  2. So excited to see hobonichi mentioned here! I use the Cousin size for work, and it’s great. The Cousin size is only available on their official website at hobonichi.net

  3. Anonymous :

    Really love the Thought Catalogue link about self care. From now on to quote the article “ be the hero of your life, not the victim. “ Many other constructive points as well. Thanks!
