Ah, Winter - the season of beautiful snowfalls, cute scarves, mittens and adornments. It's also a season that leaves some of us cold, sunless, and helplessly pale. If you want some quick color without the major health risks, skip the tanning beds and lather on some self tanners or bronzers instead. Some simple radiation-less tanning methods include bronzer, gradual self tanner, instant self tanner, and tanning spray.
i think i'm starting to become seriously addicted to starbucks caramel frappucinos. the salted caramel that they drizzle overtop of the whipped cream is to die for. for those of you who are avid starbucks fans, they are currently doing a promotion where between 3 and 5 (maybe 6, don't remember) you can go in and order one of their frappucinos (from a specific menu) and get it for half off. what a deal. i needed my may magazine fix so i stopped and picked up harper's bazaar and vogue. i wanted the vogue issue because i heard they had a great piece on alexander mcqueen and reese looked stunning on the cover. the bazaar issue was super as well. the gaga article was amazing. even though i was slightly weirded out over her statement about her cheek bones: “[T]hey’re not prosthetics,” she tells Derek Blasberg.
Here in the United States of Immaculately Manicured Lawns, it can be hard enough as is to grow a small, neatly kept patch of veggies in your front yard without provoking the ire of your neighbors, the local HOA, and/or city officials. So can you imagine an entire town of more than 10,000 people where edible landscaping is the norm?

Whether you're self-employed or telecommuting , an efficient home office is critical. At the very least, designate a room (or at least a specific section of a quiet room) in your home for work. Because if you're working in your bedroom, you'll be thinking about the next day's tasks while you're trying to sleep -- basically, an insomniac's nightmare.

For my own home office, I've invested in a good laptop (backed up with Backblaze ), a solid all-in-one printer and a landline, so I never suffer with static and I can record interviews.
