the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Crisp and uncomplicated

You could probably guess that since a strappy tank top is out of my comfort zone, wild and ornate jewelry are not my cup of tea. I used to like statement rings, but I’ve even gravitated away from those. Whenever I shop for jewelry now I always look for something minimal and delicate. Call it age, call it being almost six feet tall and not needing to stand out anymore than I already do. To finish off an outfit now I’ll look for the tiniest bit of embellishment, either a few rings and a necklace, a vintage bracelet, a set of earrings, or you know, a bearded man cuddling a hedgehog:

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
