Just for the Recessionistas....

New York and Company is offering a coupon for $20 off a $60 purchase, click here to get your's. As I've gotten older, I've become less and less of a NY&Co fan, but I actually quite like the shirt dress on the coupon (shown above). Depending on the price, it may be worth checking out. I think the yellow is quite fetching!

BRAVA! Now, let's go further...

Per the New York Times, today a federal judge ordered the FDA to make Plan B (emergency contraception) available to 17 year women without a prescription. The order overturns a 2006 Bush administration requirement that had previously set the age to receive the emergency contraception at 18 years.

Of course, reproductive rights advocates heralded the decision and conservative pundits decried it. I simply say, here we have a drug that if taken within 72 hours after unprotected intercourse can prevent an unplanned pregnancy. Fewer unplanned pregnancies = fewer abortions. I would think that "fewer abortions = good" would be something about which we can all agree.

I'm Lovin' It!!

So, I've been away for a while thanks to work (they saw the law makes for a jealous mistress and they would be correct), but now I'm back in full effect. But in addition to me being back in full effect, so is spring fashion. I am loving it! Unfortunately, I do not think my husband and my checking account are loving my obsession with the beauties out there this spring, and since I can't bring them all home to me, I figure I'll share my obsessions with you. Here are a few of the things that are calling out to me in a major way. Consider them le creme de le creme of all that spring has to offer.
