Internal Monologue. This is a Migraine.

This.

This is what ruined my weekend. This is what made me (try to) rip out the guts of the brain. This is what made work unbearable. This is what I live with at least once every single month. This is what feeds me several times a year. This. This is what made me tell the female cashier at CVS where to shove it. 
Vitamins.

Friday 'Fessional. How To. I Stole a Mani from The Beauty Department. #TBD.


I am not a huge fan of nail art. Yes, I love doing my nails. True, in the 7th grade (c. 1997), when I had 0 social life aside from soccer, I dabbled in many-a-nail-art. (So, naturally, I attribute our current nail art trend to my 12 year old self.) But. I am a huge fan of this nail art. So, I unequivocally stole it from Lauren Conrad's The Beauty Department and created my own How To.

BarbaraEllen. Happy Valentine's Day.

Admittedly, this isn't my first (attempt at a) blog. And so this also isn't the first time I've blogged about the illustrious Valentine's Day. As you can see, I was still single back in 2011. ...No surprise. And still, I love to celebrate The Day of Love.


A Snapshot In Review
Valentine's Day 2013.

Fill your heart.
