When I was in high school, my mom would often say "You should clean up your room. Just a friendly suggestion." Or "Don't be late tonight. Friendly suggestion." Or "Just a friendly suggestion -- don't play the piano so loud."
Of course what she meant was do-this-or-you'll-be-in-big-trouble. I laugh about that now. My mother was never overbearing, and yet always to the point. She still is. She's one of my most favourite people in the world. I've tried the same thing with my own daughters (repeatedly!) and they just roll their eyes.
I guess it doesn't translate to this younger generation. : )
Anyway -- all this to say if you're not following The Frugal Fashionista, you should be. I've probably said it before, but this blog is the best for highlighting what's hot right now in fashion. Even if I can't wear or afford most of it, I do appreciate staying abreast of the trends.
So just a friendly suggestion, Missy: go subscribe to Frugal Fashionista. You'll thank me when you're older.
