Obsessed with Redheads

Obsessed with Redheads
In college, I worked at one of my school’s newspapers. The editor-in-chief at the time, besides once using someone else’s office computer to look at porn when he was drunk one night (She found it still on the computer the next day when she went to work. Lots of livid all-staff emails were sent.), also... Read more »

Devachan Curly Haircut Review

Devachan Curly Haircut Review
At the behest of someone posting a comment on my review of curly hair salons around Chicago, I decided to give Cally’s Curls in Roger’s Park a try. Cally’s uses the Devachan cutting technique, a slightly less expensive alternative to Ouidad. First they cut your hair dry, then they wash and condition it, and then they... Read more »

Mascara for Redheads

Mascara for Redheads
A while back, I reviewed samples I received from a new makeup company targeted toward redheads: Redhead Revolution. While I may be biased because the the owner lived in my apartment building at some point (and she sent me free samples), I’ve been very excited to see the product line growing and improving. When I... Read more »

Painting Wisconsin Red

Painting Wisconsin Red
In case you didn’t know, I went to the University of Wisconsin for undergrad. In case you didn’t know, the Wisconsin Badgers are playing in kinda a big game right now against a kinda douchey school named Duke. (Albeit, I’ll admit douches exist at Wisconsin too. Remember the Sigma Chi gang rape, anyone?) In case... Read more »

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
