I put this one up on the Already Pretty Facebook page months ago, but the replies were SO FUN I just had to hit you guys, too. My family used to sit around singing old coal mining, dust bowl, and cowboy songs. Because, ya know, that's what all families do. So I have a backlog of old time-y...

My bag is already weighed down with stuff (see: water bottle), so I don't want the extra hardware that's going to make it even heavier! Also, I find that I don't like the *clank* sound that some hardware can make when I set the bag down on a table. It just rubs me the wrong way. A big one for...

Between style blogs, instagram, and Facebook it seems like every aspect of our lives must now be "styled" and pretty and perfect. We used to accuse "the media" and magazines of setting unrealistically high standards but geez, sometimes it feels like regular people are doing that now too. I...

If this makes me sound high maintenance, then it makes up for the other things I don't do – no make up, no heels, no hair styling (in fact no brush or comb). Apart from the inherited rings, nothing is fancy or really expensive. But I do care a lot about the styles and colours.
