How many times have we, high-heel loving ladies found ourselves with aching, blistered and bruised feet at the end of the night… wishing we had a back-up pair of flats? This happens to me almost on a daily basis… but I love, love my heels and could never part with them. Here’s the good news, clubs in the UK are now selling ballet flats in vending machines. They’re...

All of the rules on this list are pretty much great, but I have a few favorites… 7. Know how to calculate the tip. Ten percent of the total; double it; done. 16. Drinking until you throw up is no longer properly a point of pride. via allthingsalishan & lesbenjamin
20 Pictures That Give Glamour Shots A Bad Name →
Definitely got some laughs out of these… “Look in the mirror and take off the first thing that catches your eye, like your face.” I feel like I need to dig up my old Glamour Shots (circa 1994) and have a good laugh at the big hair/feather boa ensemble.

taken from emphasisadded’s post: Since I am desperately trying to quell my disappointment and keep my apt-hunting karma as good as possible, I am choosing to focus on the following silver-linings: If a pipe explodes inside of the shower and leaks water into the hallway, we will not be responsible for fixing it.* If the bar holding 70% of our clothes snaps in half in the middle leaving us...
Happy Birthday Dane!
It’s hard to believe this little man is the big 1-0 today. It seems like yesterday when I toted him around my HS cheerleading competition wearing a little onesie that said “Ali’s Number One Flyer”… brought him to my sorority house and let him roam the halls while all the girls ooed and ahhed and showered him with kisses… spent my summers out of college...

Going on day 2...
without my teasing comb. If you know me, this is an essential part of my getting ready routine. I’m quite mastered in the skill of back-combing (teasing). I laugh at the idea of a bumpit… because I AM that good. Like an American Express Card, I never leave home without it. Except for these past two days. I can’t find it anywhere. I must have lost it in the shuffle of...
travel lesson learned
I can’t even begin to tell you how many flights I’ve taken both domestically and internationally… I have to say i’m a pretty fortunate traveler. I’m may not be an exceptional packer (I always overpack bringing about twice as many outfits and shoes than needed)… but I hardly ever lose my luggage and usually everything is dry and still neatly packed (except for...
busygirl: Dear Ali, We did not discuss this hiatus. In the words of Stephanie Tanner, “How RUDE!” Love, busygirl [but seriously…hope everything is okay] You may be talking about another Ali, but I AM back… with bells and whistles (well not really, but i’m trying to be positive). After a great weekend with friends and family, I am back in Chicago and workin’ hard/hardly...

5 Big Diet Blunders to Avoid →
Five tricks that seem smart, but may actually cause you to gain weight. You may think the hopeful purchase of a little black dress or photos of thin models will encourage you to lose, but you’d be wrong. “Some women feel worse about themselves after seeing skinny models in ads. And if you feel bad about yourself, it’s harder to stick to an eating and exercise plan,” says...
