The Old Broad Speaks

This year, do it differently. Remember how thankful you were during Thanksgiving? Let that be true still. Whatever you already have, decide that you don’t want more. And mean it. And when you make holiday purchases, give two gifts. First gift: Buy from small businesses. Purchase unique items from crafters and artists. Buy those bird […]

How The Kardashians Changed My Fashion Ideology

How The Kardashians Changed My Fashion Ideology

Keeping Up with the Kardashians aired in 2007, but I didn’t catch the premiere. In fact, I didn’t start keeping up until earlier this year. While I blame missing the premiere on being 9 years old, I attribute the rest of my absence to basic channels and downloading Netflix only after KUWTK left. Sure, I […]

The Scarlet Letter Recently, the Colorado State Patrol asked the public for its opinion. Should convicted DUI drivers be required to attach Special Plates to their cars so that other drivers know?

You work hard for a girl. Never mind that I’m a woman almost out of her 40s but the man who said this to me was working the least of all of us, men or woman. Maybe he said it because we were working a labor job. Women have been working, rather hard, ever since […]

If not us, who is responsible for this spreading racial divide? According to a September newspaper article, at least 3000 advertisements are being called “the Russian campaign” to exploit America’s racial divide and sway the presidential vote. The Russians wouldn’t have been as successful if America didn’t already have a long standing history of racial […]

4 TV Characters Who Inspired My Style

Personal style seems like something of an anomaly. Being bombarded by different aesthetics through the media used to make me question whether my style was personal of just a derivate of what I saw on screens. I’ve come to learn that personal style is personal, because it’s what I choose to wear and how I […]

On Wisdom and Maturity If you’re between 18 and 25, consider this list. Acting on any of it, and how you act, is up to you but at least read through, and keep it, in mind. There’s nothing scientific about the list. It’s just my opinion but, from what I’ve noticed, the most mature, wisest, […]

Closet Confessional: Quality Over Quantity

Closet Confessional: Quality Over Quantity

I remember the first time I saw an H&M. I was walking through the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. As I passed one designer shop after another, I fawned over the textured fabrics, the intricate details and the careful designs. Since moving to a small town six years prior, the closest I […]

You need to speak English while we devour your culture. In 2000, 15% of Colorado’s population spoke a language other than English. Roughly 422,000 people spoke dialects of Spanish, almost 31,000 spoke German, and approximately 19,000 spoke French. Also included in the count were Korean, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, Italian, Polish, and Russian. Just this month, […]

Dyed with Pink, Brushed with Confidence

Dyed with Pink, Brushed with Confidence

It’s ironic that one small change to the outside can initiate a revolution on the inside. At least, that’s what happened for me. I might catwalk around like the key to confidence was a birthright, but, truth be told, I’m totally insecure. Everywhere I go, I feel like all eyes are on me, and it’s […]
