Style Writing & Coming Events


With this pen, I feel as though I could be on The Apprentice.  I’ve been doodling extra smiley faces and hearts all over my kid’s brown lunch bags.  It’s stainless steel, stylish, and refillable.  

People, what more could we want in a fine-tipped permanent marker?

The nice people at Sharpie were kind enough to send me one of these beauties.  They needed a test driver and somehow chose me.  They must’ve seen once of my lunch bag drawings.

I like it.  I use it.  I’d buy it.

Do you think Jeep needs anyone to test their 2009 Patriots?

I wouldn’t mind helping the memory foam people either.   

Shoe companies, are you out there?  Prada, I’ll walk a day in your shoes. 


No problem! 

I’m going to take a little break from Friday’s Spotlight.  Big Mamma hosts Fashion Friday and I’d like to participate with a few posts.  I know how excited you all must be to hear my fashion advice.  Please, try and contain your excitement until Friday.

Tuesday I’m going to discuss an important topic to moms, especially new moms; however, I’m finding more and more parents struggling with this issue who have school age children. 

The topic: Co-Sleeping. 

Get ready to participate and add your two sense.  Even if you don’t have children or your kids are grown, your opinion is valued.  I’ll also have a little book give-away geared towards new moms.  Pass the word around women!

Ok, that’s all the future planning I can handle.  Incase you haven’t noticed, I don’t do well with schedules.  I’m definitely a ‘fly by the seat of your pants’ kinda girl.  Considering the size of my pants, I could probably make it to Australia.

Hope you’re enjoying some sunshine this weekend!


  1. We have so much in common…..real estate, Jeep owner, Prada lover……but my sharpies are under lock and key. The peeps can’t seem to discriminate permanent from non-permanent.

  2. I hope you take this as the compliment I mean it to be, but I just have to tell you how much your writing reminds me of Erma Bombeck. I wonder if I should preface that by saying she is MY mentor! I love the rythm of your words and that’s probably why you get the fancy schmancy Sharpie and I get a crayola…and the broke one at that!
    And Hey! I just heard Frederick’s needs someone to test drive their new bustier…interested?

    Oh, if only Robert Clergerie needed my help. Pick me, Robert! Pleeeeease!

    I can’t have permanent magic markers around, because they tempt me to do horrible things. Like draw mustaches while Adam and the boys sleep. Perhaps I’m a bit immature. (Look at that self awareness. Impressed, aren’t you?)

  4. I can’t wait to read your Fashion Friday posts. :)

  5. Good to know about the Sharpie. I will try one out!

  6. A sweet flowing pen…the stuff of dreams. I just asked for a pen to help with a science fair project and got handed a stumpy carpenter’s pencil. Harumph!

  7. You know what? I spent way too much time in the pen/pencil/marker isle the other day. Longing for the variety and selection of pens I had while in America. These folks just don’t care to have a “good writting” pen. You know the kind you ask your banker if you can have after you just signed your life away. Or the one like the school teacher has sitting on her desk. After all Teachers write A LOT, so they know what’s the most comfortable on the fingers…..

    I’m jealous of your new hip, sleek, beautiful sharpie!

  8. Man i have to go find that pen for work!! How cool is that and hopefully Jeep will call you to be their tester and promoter.

    I am trying very hard to incorporate some of Big Mama’s stuff but I am fashion-challenged.

  9. Wow, I wish Sharpie would let me try out a pen!! That one does look cool. Do you know? Is is in stores yet?
    Looking forward to your planned posts and any unplanned ones for the week!

  10. Aren’t you Special Special! Sharpie knows your name!

    Looking forward to all the stuff you can lob at us!

  11. FringeGirl on Fashion is my favorite! I can’t wait!

  12. That looks like an awesome pen. I do have certain requirements for pens.
