You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.


And will you succeed?

Yes! You will indeed!

(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

 A thousand thousand apologies for our heinous lack of posting lately. As we stressed and procrastinated at school a month ago, we fully expected to have endless time on our hands for copious blog posting during the summer. Sadly, work and exercise and family have intervened for the time being. We’re hoping to get accustomed to the routine and regain our former boredom very soon, so stay tuned.


For now, we have the most fantastically life-changing thing to show you. Ladies and gentlemen (ok, sorry gentlemen, this one’s not for you– but hey, we bill ourselves as meninas, so you shouldn’t be too surprised), we give you…. *drumroll* is a site devoted to finding women the best possible sizes for bras and jeans. They put you through a 3-minute survey, and voila! Up to 50 amazing selections, priced reasonably and available both online and in stores.


Go now, do a quiz, and just see what it comes up with for you. Even if you’re not in a position to buy (more budget advice coming soon, promise!), Zafu will give you a better idea of what to look for when you’re flush enough to justify a much-needed bra or pair of jeans.


See, they’re adorable! What are you waiting for, go!!

oh happy day

22 years ago today, a beautiful baby girl was born into this world. Little did the world know what a spectacular young woman that baby girl would grow up to be.


That baby girl grew up to love cardigans, pineapple gum, and hot dogs. She grew up to have millions of freckles and the bluest eyes you’ve ever seen. She grew up to be clumsy, forgetful and slightly spacey. She grew up to love indie music, dance parties and girls nights.

That baby girl grew up to be the best friend a girl could ask for. She grew up to be the perfect shoulder to cry on, the most excellent partner-in-crime and the most supportive, most caring, most loving young woman.


And I know that in a few short months, this young woman will be the best teacher a student could ask for. She is going to make a difference in the life of every child who is blessed enough to be in her class. She is a remarkable young woman today, and she only gets lovelier as the days and years go by.

To my housemate, best mate and soul mate: happy birthday.
