Rachael told me about this site http://newdressaday.wordpress.com/ Her name is Marisa and she is doing a Julie and Julia. 365 Days, 365 Dresses, 365 Dollars. She only buys used and vintage and remakes them for that day's outfit. Some of the makeovers are amazing. However the snark in me says if I had to make an outfit before I went out everyday, I'd spend a lot of time at home. Plus, where I live, I can't find dresses to makeover for a buck. And wouldn't they smell? So she must wash a batch of them at a time or she'd smell like Goodwill. Don't get huffy, you know Goodwill has it's own scent. Just saying. Plus she's cute and thirty. She'd look good in a grocery bag. Now having said all that, I am impressed. The energy of youth.
She also had a recipe for 5 minute Chocolate Mug Cake. Yeah, like I needed to know this existed in the world. Sigh, of course I hustled right into the kitchen and made some.
