Red legs, blue legs

You’ve worked hard on those lean legs all year long, so why cover them up during winter? Tights and leggings are a great way to show off your stems during the frigid months, but not just any ol’ pair will do. While shamelessly Internet shopping last weekend, I came across what

Valentine’s Day isn’t just a Hallmark Holiday (though the card companies do make a killing). Whether you’ve been together two months or 20 years, Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to reconnect with that special someone in your life, and what better way to celebrate the day of love than to

Shopping for sex day

What I blew my paycheck on this week. Lover’s Package Plain and simple, I think Valentine’s Day blows. It’s just another holiday pushed by the greeting card companies, the chocolate factories, florists and every restaurant around (does anyone really need an excuse to go out to eat?) via every media outlet known

Take a trip to Hawaii

Temple of the Tempest

With our current nightlife scene continuing to bust at the seams with more and more places to nosh and sip, it’s easy to become attention deficit and get lured away from the places that really matter. Well, Tacoma, leave it to me to stand on top of the bar and crack
