Knickers in a Knot

I know it’s a little pretentious and anglophilic for an American blog, but we’re gonna go with “knickers” here at Sweet Nothings. “Panties” and “underpants” are just sad, and “brief” and “thong” and such describe specific styles, so “knickers” is going to be our catch-all term for rear-covering undergarments. I touched on some of the […] Read more…

I . . . should probably take a cake decorating course.  I think that's what we've learned here today.  I dyed my own sprinkles?  Does that count?

Ezmeralda’s Birthday Cake

Ezmeralda is the nom-de-plume of the best neighbor Roommate and I ever had. She was SO EXCITED when Roommate adopted her dog, Lily, last year, possibly more excited than we were. We were in the process of installing a baby-gate in the front hall to limit Lily’s access to my door-less bedroom, and Lily was […] Read more…

Goat Cheese and Tomato Tart

Poor Roommate. She’d get home from grad school, open the fridge, and see a covered pie plate where there hadn’t been one before. She’d hope against hope that it would be chocolate pie, or key lime pie, or pecan pie, or anything at all except what it was: a tart starring her least favorite fruit- […] Read more…

I will most likely wind up spending the night at the office tonight.  Alls I’m sayin’ is: 1.  If the lawyers/clients eat all the fancy food in the conference room and leave none for me, my vengeance will be swift and mighty.  Or at least sullen and sulky. 2.  If the lovely people in the […] Read more…

Mark Darcy agrees with me.

Fighting

I have a confession to make.  I’ve told you that when I hear women around me talk negatively about their bodies, I speak up and tell them why I think they’re lovely, just as they are.  I do not comment on weight gained or lost by myself or by other people.  I do not cast judgment on […] Read more…

Sweet Nothing Du Jour: 6/25/12

This will appeal to about three of my readers. You know who you are. Someone at the Royal Ballet is awesome at social media. Earlier this year they did a live broadcast of the entirety of one of their company classes. Did I stay up until 2:00 a.m. watching the whole thing? Yes. Of course […] Read more…

Recommended Reading: Busted! By Ali Cudby

If I had to choose a gift for a teenage girl (or her mom), I’d be that awkward friend who gave her this book. Y’all, it’s so great.  It really is.  It’s short, sweet, matter-of-fact, and astoundingly comprehensive on the subject of boobs and bras. Ali Cudby is the founder and CEO of FabFoundations™, a bra-fitting […] Read more…
