Hey, so I’m finally getting around to posting part two of my empties video from a while back. Enjoy my rambling!

So, if you get my posts via RSS (reader/email/etc.), you may have noticed a strange post a few days ago. Yes friends, I was hacked.


Anyway, I *think* the main problem has been taken care of, and I’ve got someone working on the backend to get the place secure again. I’m hopeful that it’s under control. (And thank you so much to those of you who reached out to make sure I knew. Luckily I subscribe to my own RSS for reasons like this, so I did know, but I’m always grateful to know people are looking out for me.).

This has REALLY made me want to do some work on the site though, so don’t be surprised if you see some changes around here soon.

Anyway, long story short: spammers are stupid. The end.

Let’s ramble about empties

Empty beauty products that is 🙂

Part one of two (which I’ll put up tomorrow, these got longer than I meant for them to be).


P.S. If you’re interested in the Paula’s Choice stuff, you can use my referral link & get $10 off your first order (I get $10 too, full disclosure). Right this minute, they’re having a sale, which stacks w/the referral discount, or you can sign up for their emails to be notified when they have another sale/discount.

Goodbye NaBloPoMo

by Ginger on November 30, 2015

No one is going to say that my NaBloPoMo was filled with quality posts that stirred minds and hearts. But I did it, if only just, and I’ll take it whatever the outcome was. I wish I had met my 400 word per post goal a little more than I did, but oh well. It’s something, and I’m counting it.

I’m going to try and keep the practice of writing up into December. I’m reminded every time I do NaBloPoMo about how much I do like writing here, so I’m going to try and keep up the habit. Not every day, of course, but I’m going to shoot for 3 times a week. My goal is to get back to a point where it’s habit to come here and write whenever I feel the urge/can’t stop thinking about something/when I’m feeling silly/etc. We’ll see if I can get there after so many months (years?) of letting my writing slide, but I’ll try.

Anyway. Here’s to another NaBloPoMo in the books. Huzzah!

December To-Do List

by Ginger on November 29, 2015

Edit 12/17, just to see how much I’ve accomplished:

At least in part…

  • put up the Christmas lights (we put up the rest of the non-light, non-tree decorations today. It’s pretty awesome already.)
  • find our 2015 Christmas ornament
  • buy & decorate the Christmas tree (this one has to wait a little longer so that it’s not a total fire hazard by Christmas Day)
  • wrap & mail Christmas gifts
  • make, wrap, & distribute edible Christmas gifts (I’m still trying to decide what to make–if you’ve got any recipes you love to gift to other folks this time of year, I’d love to hear about them!)
  • read 9 books to actually complete my Goodreads challenge for the year
  • finish watching season 1 of Jane the Virgin
  • watch Jessica Jones
  • apply for 2016 health coverage
  • figure out what to do with my child for the 3.5 weeks he’s on winter break (so that we don’t all kill each other)
  • apply to jobs
  • apply to more jobs
  • find a damn job oh my god
  • get the last of the stocking stuffers (I’d like to have this done by the 2nd week in December, because that’s the last thing I need to do to finish up Christmas)
  • we’re not doing Christmas cards, but I DO want to write some notes to people who especially helped me through this year
  • decide whether I’m going to try a freelance business, and if so, work on getting that off the ground
  • go see the latest Hunger Games with Caitlin
  • color in my coloring book at least 3x a week
  • deal with timeshare stuff for next year
  • clean out the storage unit
  • figure out what to do with all the stuff I’ve decluttered
  • finish organizing photos from 2014 & 2015 (and maybe start on 2013)
  • work on/finish up a consulting job
  • go to a friend/former colleague’s holiday business party
  • blog 3x a week
  • did I mention find a job?
