This is My Pixie Blog. It's written by a Charlotte, a woman of exceptional loveliness living in Hoboken. I had to look up where Hoboken was because it sounded a little too Lord-of-the-Rings-ish to be real. Well, I am here to tell you it is real and it's in New Jersey, just across the state line from NYC. I'm exposing myself as a New York noob for not knowing that, but I watched Sex and the City for the shoes and sexploits, not the geography.
Now that I think of it, Charlotte's blog actually reminds me a bit of Sex and the City. Sorry if you find that offensive Charlotte, please let me explain. In both you get to witness the dating trials and tribulations of a curly haired vixen in New York while she figures out how to handle herself after the crushing bust-up of a long-term relationship. As embarrassing as this is to admit - I did find a lot of Sex and the City relatable*. The bonus of Charlotte's posts are that they are not only more relevant to my non-couture lifestyle, but she doesn't start every moment of self examination with "I couldn't help but wonder..."
I love how well written and honest this blog is; Charlotte doesn't hide the not so flowery turns of events from her readers. I've happily devoured her entire blog over the course of a few days, and each time a new post pops up on my blog roll I settle in for a great read.
Do yourself a favour and start from the beginning. The navigation between posts can be a little bothersome (no next post/newer post navigation), but it's totally worth the trouble.
