Things are looking new around here!
Howdy! You might notice that “The Bitter Lemon” got a bit of a facelift. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, but it took me a bit to find something that felt right. So, welcome! It’s still going to be the same content you’re used to, just a bit of a different […]More
Watching: ‘Lady Bird’.
Thursday night I joined a friend to see “Lady Bird” – we were especially excited after all the hype it got at the Golden Globes last weekend and wanted to catch it before it left theatres. I’d heard a little bit about it, and saw the film’s writer and director – Greta Gerwig – on […]More

Comparing cosmetic primers, II.
Happy Halloween! I am pretty excited for today – oddly – mostly because this means I can take a break from mass-producing Holly Golightly sleep masks for seasonal costumes, and because I love hearing “Thriller” on the radio constantly. Several months ago, I posted short reviews about cosmetic primers I’ve tried. I got such good […]More
My first two months on Etsy.
At the end of August, I opened up my Etsy shop: The Bitter Lemon Shop. I have always thought about opening up an Etsy store, not because I have an abundance of things to sell, but because there are times when I really enjoy creating things and I always get really excited when they turn […]More
WordCamp San Antonio!
Hey there! I’m fresh off a weekend of geeking out over WordPress, so I’m pretty excited to be blogging today. I’ve had this on my calendar for a few months now, so I was pretty excited when the weekend rolled around. I wasn’t aware of this, but WordPress hold these WordCamps each year, in different […]More
The Bitter Lemon Shop!
I know I’ve talked a little bit about my recently-opened Etsy shop: The Bitter Lemon Shop, but I wanted to dedicate a post about it. I didn’t really intend to open the shop and fill it with so much STUFF, but it happened that way – once you start creating, I guess I can’t stop! […]More
Watching: ‘Ingrid Goes West’.
Over the long weekend, I did exactly what you’re supposed to do: ate watermelon and burgers (okay, vegan black bean burgers), shopped ’till I dropped, and went to the movies! I finally saw what lots of people have been talking about “Ingrid Goes West”. “Ingrid Goes West” is the story of Ingrid Thorborn (Aubrey Plaza), […]More
Detox Your Dating: Day 7.

‘Siesta Key’: ‘Alex’s Kingdom’.
Every week I continue to be SHOCKED that this show is still on television. Here we are, again, so let’s get into it! The episode kicks off with Chloe asking Alex if he really slept with Amanda. He admits it, shockingly, and Chloe is just liiiike, hey could you let me know when you sleep […]More
Pic of the Week.
My pic(s) of the week this time just HAD to be about Hangout Fest, since I haven’t even been back home from it for 24 hours! It was a weekend in Gulf Shores, full of fun, sun, sand (it was even in my hair), fried food, drinks, and of course: music! I will admit, I […]More
Packing: music fest essentials.

This year’s headliners are Sam Smith, Zac Brown Band, Beck, Foo Fighters, Skrillex and Diplo, along with many other great bands. I’m […]More
