FTF: Maybe It’s Maybelline
Posted 28 February 2014 / By MC / Archives/ Favorite Things Friday (FTF)/ Featured

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snow flakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things

That’s right. Maybe it is. Maybe it’s not Sephora, or Bobbi Brown, or MAC, or Lancome. Maybe it’s just that seven dollar crap from Walgreens.

Because that’s the best stuff I’ve found lately. Read More

Love Is War
Posted 26 February 2014 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Love - Yuck./ The Pretty Girl Mafia/ Vacays-n-Getaways

Young lovers in a picture frame

Ever notice how there ain’t no rain

Nobody hangs hard times on the wall

You won’t see it in an 8 by 10

But there’s a storm every now and then

A slamming door down the hall

Sometimes love is a white flag

Sometimes love is standing tall

Sometimes love is a feather

Sometimes a cannon ball

But it’s worth fighting for (it’s worth fighting for)

Baby, sometimes love is war

– American Young

Typically, Mr. Big and I spend the weekend in Charlotte for Valentine’s Day. We usually get all dolled up and go to dinner at Morton’s or Ruth’s Chris. Sometimes we’ll go shopping and other times we won’t. Mostly, we just get away. But this year, Big had something better in mind – for himself.

Lord, I wonder if I’ll ever change my ways

When we all get together… that is when it happens.

“Ohhhh, well looky there all of us are here. You know, all corralled together in the very same spot. Everyone just sitting here with one another, breaking bread, having a drink, shooting the shit, and whatnot. Huh, fancy that! Well, since I do have each of you trapped in a booth, in the middle of a restaurant, and you haven’t even gotten your salads yet… say, let’s plan our next outing!” Read More

I’m Coming Home
Posted 12 February 2014 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings/ Tear Jerkers

I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Tell the World I’m coming home

Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday

I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes

I’m coming home, I’m coming home

Tell the World I’m coming…home

– J. Cole

A couple of weeks ago I found out the most awful news.

A girl I grew up with – someone I sat beside in middle school – had went through the most heartbreaking and traumatic experience any person on this earth could ever withstand.

She lost her child. Read More

While on hiatus, I spent a lot of time trolling the internet for other blogs to kill time. I mostly sought out other blogs like mine. Ones with lots of wit, and sass, and cursing. Blogs with fun stories bubbling over with honesty and self-deprecation. But every now and again I would catch myself stuck on a page completely the opposite. I would spend hours scrolling though – ugh, I’m so ashamed I can barely even say it. (Deep breath.) I found myself enthralled in… fashion blogs. Read More

Big Girls Don’t Cry

I hope you know, I hope you know

That this has nothing to do with you

It’s personal, myself and I

We’ve got some straightenin’ out to do

And I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket

But I’ve got to get a move on with my life

It’s time to be a big girl now

And big girls don’t cry

– Fergie

Mr. Big spends most weekend evenings at my house. It’s okay, I guess. I mean, I would rather us hang out at my place, you know, for the usual reasons: I typically have more food, I don’t have to pack a bag, Sonny is more comfortable here, it smells better at my house, and I don’t have to squat when I pee. Our time together is usually alright, you know, for the most part “normal.” We’ll cook dinner and watch a movie, or go out, or fight over what to watch on TV. But it never fails, each time Big stays over we always run into the same problem – I’ve got a queen-size bed. Read More
