Spruce Up Your Interior For Christmas – Living Rooms


I'm deliberately going to steer away from all the razzmatazz and commercial side of the festive season for living rooms and suggest that you use your curtain poles or tracks as a means of hanging natural and handmade festive decorations.Combine these with pretty bowls filled with pine cones in various shapes and sizes along with home-made tree decorations, such as gingerbread men, iced biscuits,

December is National Drunk and Drugged Driver Awareness Month


Did you know that every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 48 minutes. The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $51 billion. People who drink and drive put everyone on the road in danger:Certain groups are more likely to drink and drive than others. Men were responsible

7 Day Dare: Darlyna


Wild. That's the word I think of when looking at this outfit. It's crazy in the sense that you don't see a fur vest very often in Wyoming and if you do, I'd think it was real. I'd also think he'd killed it himself, assuming it was a man wearing the fur vest. He'd be all Dexter-like about it, taking a trophy of his kill. Which leads to why this post is called "Darlyna." As you know, I love the

Spruce Up Your Interior For Christmas – Kitchens


Keep your festive spirits up while you prepare mountains of festive foods by adding decorations to your kitchen! You don't have to go mad, but a simple artificial tree to compliment a stainless steel contemporary kitchen or home-made gingerbread men hanging from red ribbons from your curtain poles or kitchen blinds will remind you why you're slaving over a hot stove!The gorgeous aromas that waft

7 Day Dare: Bel-Air Flair


This sweater is definitely something from the 80's. Going into today's outfit, I wanted to wear leg warmers and back comb my hair, but once I put the chains around my neck, I felt like I was in Bel-Air homies!For realz ya! In all honestly, I just love this sweater. It's warm, cozy and has a great pattern to it. Y'all out there that are hatin' are just jealous you don't have a rad sweater like

Stop Child Sexual Abuse


By Robert TornabeneSince the incident that has permeated Penn State University there have been many people who have asked me to write an article on the issue of grooming, how it happens and how to protect against it. As with everything, I freely admit I am not an expert, especially in this area, I do however having first hand knowledge in my personal life that allows me draw upon as a resource.

7 Day Dare: Overcast


I guess the dark clouds blocking the sun and the light breeze has to match my mood for today. This is my last chance to complete my rough draft for my paper. It's slowly getting there, but it's been an uphill battle to finish it. If you haven't noticed, my hair is getting longer! I've had a short haircut since college started, which is also when I started cutting my own hair. Ya, you read that

Spruce Up Your Interior For Christmas – Deck the Halls


As we know your entrance and hall is the key to your home and as we also know 1st impressions count, so the best place to start sprucing up your interior for Christmas is your font door and hall.A simple yet stylish wreath can be used to set the scene so to speak and give your visitor a taste of what's in store when they enter your home! If your interior theme is traditional then your door wreath

7 Day Dare: Leftovers


Day One of the 7 Day Dare. This is going to be very interesting! I'm excited to be doing this challenge and I hope some of you will take on the same challenge. It definitely makes for good conversation with friends and family. I'm calling this post Leftovers because that's what I've been surviving on since Thanksgiving. This huge paper I've been working on is sucking up all of my time, including

To Grandmother's House I Went


Another successful Thanksgiving! Since going home for a mere 3 days is not worth a plane ticket, I go to my Grandparent's Ranch, which is in the middle of nowhere...and I mean NOWHERE...Wyoming. The cool part about my Grandma's ranch is that she runs the state's Horse Rescue Center. She has about, oh.. 7 horses, 2 donkeys (burros) and a mule. She also has 5 cats, an Austrailian Sheepdog and a big

Happy Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?


Happy Thanksgiving! We would like to wish everyone a safe, happy and bountiful Thanksgiving. Please take a few moments during your busy day of celebration to remember those who are less fortunate than you may be. In these very tough economic times, it is important to remember those things in our lives that we should truly be thankful for. Our family, our friends and helping others less fortunate

What to Wear on Black Friday


I've never gone to a Black Friday event ever. My mom is an expert though and likes to work alone, as though I'd even have the opportunity to go with her anyway seeing as we're 1,300 miles apart. For the event though, I hear layers and comfort are key to a successful morning. In honor of this crazy day, I've prepared this post as a sample outfit idea for all you brave souls who are going out to

Yay!! Break! Although it really isn't a break because I will be writing a 20-page and a 10-page paper this weekend. And I'm not even having turkey this Thanksgiving. We'll be having game hens. I've never had them so I'm curious as to what they'll be like.Besides writing part of a paper today, I baked some amazing cookies that I'm really proud of, pumpkin pinwheels and chocolate chip banana

How to recognize teen drug use


As parents, we say that we want to know everything about our children but we are often uncomfortable or choose to ignore certain attitudes and behaviors in hopes of preserving peace in the family. We rationalize to ourselves that it is just a phase our teenagers are going through and will grow out of. By doing this we often overlook the warning signs that identify teen drug use.How to Recognize

Interior Design Winter Warmers: Large Rugs


Today I'm taking a look at draughty floors!! Stripped floorboards look brilliant in many homes, as do stone and tiled floors, however, when it comes to winter they types of flooring at be cold on the feet. An inexpensive and on-trend way to deal with this issue to use large rugs. They'll help your feet stay warm and are (in my opinion) far easier to keep clean than fitted carpets. I have to

What to Wear to Thanksgiving Dinner


Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate flowy tops and elastic waist bands. It's a true American holiday: eat until you can't eat anymore. Many people I know have a more casual Thanksgiving, but then there are the questions of what can I wear that will let my full belly be comfortable and what will be cute and appropriate for a family occasion? I have 3 different outfits to answer such questions. I

Scarf Week: Eternity


Life Note: The day after seeing Breaking Dawn I was tired and cranky. I feel like a toddler when I don't get enough sleep. I'm all winy and just not pleasant to be around. But, for some unknown reason, I went to the gym and felt so much better after. Working out is like a healthy drug addiction.

Scarf Week: Video Star Killed the Internet


I'm one of those college students who takes full advantage of procrastinating. I'll surf the Internet looking at news, weather, other blogs and will facebook stalk just to get out of doing what I really need to be doing.

Interior Design Winter Warmers: Window Blinds


Most of us have window blinds in at least one of our windows. Typically blinds are used as an effective window covering for bathrooms and kitchens. However, if you have a loft conversion with skylight windows the only really effective, practical and functional window dressing is to use skylight blinds. These blinds are made specifically for skylight windows and fit snugly onto the inner frame of

When She Met Tom


I've been a Toms lover for years now. My first was actually the silver sparkler ones. I loved those shoes. In high school for the school newspaper, I did an article on Toms and how they would become big.

Help you school in drug prevention


 Children have the best prospects for leading healthy, drug-free lives when schools support parents in their anti-drug message. There should be nothing confusing or contradictory in what children learn about drugs from the adults in their lives, and school policies need to reflect the same attitude toward alcohol and drugs that you express at home: Drug use is not acceptable. Drugs diminish a

Interior Design Winter Warmers: Bed Throws


Let's turn our attention to bedrooms and look at cost-effective ways to add warmth. Bed throws have to be the easiest winter warmer when it comes to bedding. Look out for the latest faux fur styles which are soothingly tactile and a great way to keep warm.Use your usual duvet covers sets and as they name suggests, simply throw an additional layer over the top. Opt for extra large bed throws, one

Warm Colors


During autumn, I love to wear colors that match the surrounding colors. The only problem with Laramie is that my favorite season, with all of its pretty colors, comes and goes so quickly. Fall is literally here and then it's gone. The only thing I'm happy for is that, even from all the snow storms we've had, the snow has not stuck around.This is just a forewarning, once the snow does hit and

Tips for Middle School Aged Youth on Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs


The year your child enters middle school or junior high school is both an exciting and a challenging time. They are little fish in a big pond and often want desperately to fit in. Because your children may now see older students using alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and may think they are cool and self-assured, your children may be tempted to try drugs too. Drug use goes up dramatically in the

Pancakes for a Cause


Upon waking up, I expected a blizzard of sleet and snow and just a nasty day. But, as I opened my blinds, I saw blue skies and most of the snow had melted away, much to my disappointment. I fully enjoy snow storms...well...most storms that is. I love when I can cuddle up with a blanket (or preferably my boyfriend) and stay inside with hot tea and watch the storm do its thing.Most of the time

Vest with the Fur


One of my favorite things to do in my closet is to find old clothes that I haven't worn in a loooong time, try them on and get all excited because either A) it fits and I have another amazing piece to add to my wardrobe that I paid $0 for (but in actuality I did pay for it a long time ago) or B) it doesn't fit so I make a run to Plato's Closet and get some money to spend on other clothing.So it's

Tips for Elementary School Children regarding alcohol tobacco and other drugs


 A child this age usually shows increasing interest in the world outside the family and home. Discuss how anything you put in your body that is not food, water or juice can be extremely harmful, and how drugs interfere with the way our bodies work and can make a person very sick or even cause them to die. (Most children of this age have had real-life experiences with the death of a relative or a

Final Halloween contume. It was SafeTreat for all the little children of Laramie. SafetTreat is a safe place for little kids to go trick-or-treating in the college town of Laramie.

I have also had this since I was in 6th grade I think. I love it!

I know this sweater makes me happy.Also, this



This is another thrown-together look for the 30 for 30.

You know the phrase walking in a winter wonderland? I prefer walking through falling leaves.I love this scarf. Funny story about this scarf. I demolished a mannequin at Urban Outfitters to get it.
