Not Dead

Hello all, it's been a very long time since I last made a feeble attempt to excuse my absence. The truth is, I'm still studying for the MCAT about 8 hours a day. I don't go out, I don't shop, I don't wear any of my attractive clothes, and I sure as hell don't have time to pretend that I do (besides, that's unethical - I post what I wear). That said I'm NOT gone forever. You can't imagine how lacking my life has been without the blog. My readership is small and my style undeveloped but I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed making meaningful connections even with a few people, and gradually evolving my look.

So here's the big announcement: I'm going to completely rework this blog. The premise will be largely the same (eBay for the win, in case you've forgotten) but the approach will differ a bit. I want this blog to be useful to you (I'm not going the stolen-from-Martha Cupcakes and Cashmere route) in a way other blogs may not be (again, no kindergarten DIYs or mediocre recipes from the back of a box). That's about it then - I'll see you once I've had enough sleep and gotten my 40+ :)

Thank you all for your kind messages about my absence,


  1. Welcome back :D

  2. Glad to see you're not dead. I was about to send a search party. :)

    I also disappear from time to time, but I plan to post more consistently now that I'm making it my full-time business. It's completely OK to adjust the focus of your blog--I've done it several times! I agree with your point that you should provide something useful to your readers. My favorite blogs challenge the way I think, see the world, or conduct my life.

    Good luck on your MCAT! Please get enough sleep and take care of yourself. I'm looking forward to seeing the changes you'll make to your blog. Good luck!

  3. I'm eager to see what your blog turns into...don't blame you for your absence with the MCAT...I think that's sufficient excuse :) I was just about to panic and think you had died though. Don't run away for too much longer!

  4. Hey there! I'm checking in on your non-deadness. :) How's your blog reworking going? Did you already take your MCAT?

    Hope you're having a great summer!

  5. You should both: a) come back! and b) announce that giveaway winner ;)

  6. Just checking up on you :) Wishing you continued luck on your studying!


Feel free to leave your blog name/URL in your comment (I'm all for new friends) but please don't ask me to follow you. It's tacky and rude. We're all free to decide what we like without undue influence. Thank you!
