Everyday Resolutions . Actually USE That Schmancy Lotion!

December 15, 2009 separator Uncategorized

Do you think I’m crazy yet? Was it the title that did it? Did I make up too many of my own words? I actually got a “What the heck does janky mean?” after yesterday’s post, so apparently I’ve made an impression!

janky – jan·ky ˈjaŋ-kē adjective

  • wonky, jacked-up, messed up, hideous, tacky
  • Man, that is one janky-looking cake. Did you frost that thing with your eyes closed?

Anyhow – I digress. I always digress. I love to ramble and stray. My point is that I’m morally opposed to New Year’s Resolutions. I think that they set you up for failure. It’s too much pressure, and holy cow – aren’t we all already under enough pressure?!? That’s why I don’t make resolutions. I make to-do lists and random goals or tasks.

That’s why I’ve decided to set some ‘Everyday Resolutions’ for all you lovelies. As a reader, you’re firmly bound to follow my resolutions. 😉

Resolution 1. Actually use that schmancy lotion that smells like heaven but has such a pretty bottle that you don’t want to empty it. Actually burn the candle in the really pretty holder. Actually exfoliate your pretty little self with that sugar scrub that’s been sitting in the lovely jar for a year and a half collecting as much dust as your poor, scaly legs! And yes – I totally just called your legs scaly.

If you’re anything like me, then you’re afraid to ‘ruin’ your pretty pampering products by using them. Oooor you’re nothing like me because you’re not a super cheap, broke graduate student. In which case, quite reading this and buy me one of the aforementioned items!


  1. Lindsay,
    your too funny, but I don’t think that it has anything to do with you being “crazy” or what ev. It is all that school work and now your getting ready to take a little break and don’t know what to do with yourself:)

  2. I’d actually never heard the word ‘janky’ until I moved from Texas to New England — but now I hear it ALL the time! I have to admit, the first time I heard it, I was like, “whaaaat?” but now I’m guilty of using it too 🙂

  3. oh I totally agree, resolutions are silly! I mean if you really want to change something go ahead and make a life style change, do it now, don’t wait, just do it, and make a plan and don’t beat yourself up if you mess up a little, it takes time to get it totally right hey?

  4. I love your posts, you are so funny and so on the mark! Keep it up, and you’ll have 1000 followers by March. 🙂 Keeping my fingers crossed.

  5. I SO do this! I have let scrubs just ruin because I want to preserve their fancyness. And listen, we use ‘janky’ daily around these parts. 😉 You’re not alone.
