bangs for your buck

Happy Hump Day!  Around these parts of the south Boston ghett., Wednesdays are for gas and coffee!! Yep.  The highlight of my week is when I drive 20 minutes south to the nearest Cumberland Farms.  (Their gas is cheap & their coffee is bomb— and $1!)

Four Tips for Destroying Self-Doubt

I have a confession:  I run on full tanks of self-doubt. Like, if issues with self-confidence were an Olympic sport, I’d be on a plane home from South Korea right now with a neck full of Golds. 😎 I’ve always been a dreamer.  Very ambitious.  I wanted to do all of the things and know […]

5 Reasons Massachusetts Drivers Are Actually Awesome.

I’m from Connecticut.  I’m sure you’ve heard me mention it once or twice (per post 🤦‍♀️).  In Connecticut, (and perhaps elsewhere in New England, as we probably deal most regularly with them) we have a term for Massachusetts drivers.  We call them “Massholes.”  Because, well, they tend to drive like complete a**holes.  If you’re on […]

A Cheap Hair Plug

I feel like my posts have been a little heavy lately.  And the news has been even heavier.  In fact, I just spent the better part of the last hour drafting a soap boxy sort of post about the recent shooting, and right before posting, thought better of it.  No one needs to hear my […]
