I’d Rather Be Naked

It’s a scorching hot week.

The kind where you feel like you’re melting when you walk outside.

But even though the thought of going nude (simply to beat the heat) was tempting, I thought it might be awkward at Costco and the park, so I donned the next best thing: a sheer tank and a comfy pair of denim shorts.

There was no point in doing my hair, so up it went on the top of my head, capped off with a Gussy headband. The booties lasted through the trip to Costco, but were replaced with sandals for the park as the temperature hit 90. Yeah, we didn’t last long there.

Apparently, one of the side effects of this heat is that it renders me unable to make eye contact with the camera, and instead can only look down or to the side.

  • I made this easy dip for a recent night out with friends, and while doing so, I thought to myself, “This would be a perfect recipe for a Super Bowl party.” Because, I mean – bacon. Also, this is an easy one. And I love easy recipes for a party. There’s far too much to… [Continue Reading]
