adding ginger to your sass

GingerSass - adding ginger to your sass

Today has been a good day.

Today has been a good day.

I woke up, and my curls were basically PERFECT. This rarely happens.

I reached 100 posts! Wooooo!

I wore a lot of pink, a color I love but don’t own enough of, and I got a ton of compliments on how well matched my headband, earrings, necklace, and shirt were with my eye makeup.

I opened a new checking/ savings account and it was relatively painless. I even got $25!

I parallel parked in NB and didn’t kill anyone. As an added bonus, there was over an hour left on the meter when I parked!

I ate a leisurely lunch at one of my favorite eateries near campus for free. (Thank you, Living Social!) It was delicious.

I sat in a park and people watched/ wrote/ studied, and there was a beautiful breeze, sunshine, and overall bliss. A bird also decided to use my shorts as a toilet, but I’m told that is good luck.

A church group gave me a free bottle of water EXACTLY WHEN I REALIZED HOW THIRSTY I WAS. I asked what the catch was (I’m a bit skeptical of anything being free) and they told me they were just giving out water because it was hot out. (And to promote their Sunday services, but I’ll let that slide.)

I went to my university’s library and had the entire cafe to myself to study in! (It’s closed for the summer, but open for studying, so I embraced it.)

I then went to another part of the library, and I remembered that, as a a grad student, I now have Special Library Privileges (aka I can go into the Grad Student area and not be bothered by stupid underclassmen).

I found out today that, by the end of July, I’ll have two jobs. (This is a good thing.)

I spent a lot of my day studying for the Praxis I’m taking on Wednesday, and I know more than I thought I did!

I finally blogged about Taylor & Mike’s wedding, and we decided to collaborate on a fantastic blog post idea in the near future! I’m super excited about it.

I went on an impromptu photoshoot of an old cemetery, and subsequently decided to create an Etsy store of my photography. Other, more sassy items are coming soon!

Again, today is a good day. <3

Why are you having a good day?


In my elementary school experiences, the countdown to “100” is a REALLY BIG DEAL. Elementary school teachers go all out for the 100th day of school– I remember there being parties, 100-based arts and crafts, athletic ventures of doing 100 pushups or situps (my least favorite celebration), reading 100 pages of a book, etc. Reaching that magnificent centennial moment was a milestone, and it was expected that all elementary school students go CRAZY and WILD and CELEBRATE the big one-double-oh in style.

After all, the hundredth day of school only happens once (a school year).

Guess what this is?


I’m not going to make you all do 100 push ups or jumping jacks, and, although I’d love to, I’m not going to make you create artwork using 100 Cheerios (the cereal, not the cheerleaders) or sequins. Although it would be fabulous if you read all 100 posts, you’re not obligated to. I challenge you to write, in 100 characters or less, how you embrace ginger/sass in your daily life. (That sentence was 100 characters long.) That’s less than a tweet!

How do I embrace ginger/sass in my daily life?

I live it, I love it, I conquer it…and do it all while maintaining my hair, makeup, & accessories.

I also challenge you to invite your friends, family, lovers, children, pets, etc. to join the party and follow GingerSass on twitter (@THEGingerSass) and like the fan page on Facebook (
