Blog: Local writer provides humor and fashion advice

CHICKASHA — One of the coolest things about the internet is its accessibility for talented writers that may not have another platform. One of my best friends, an english major at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma has been blogging for a few months on the free blogging website, WordPress.

Currently she runs two blogs. The first is called Chic By Any Other Name and is for the every day female. It's like a handbook for shopping on a budget. Sara keeps every outfit posted online under $25.

From vintage jewelry to over oversized sweaters, Sara gives readers a variety of inspirational outfits that they too can recreate. And without hurting their bank accounts.

Her newest blog is called Boots and Cats with the tagline, "Fashion and felines and my funny life."  Sara uses her love for romance novels and her (sometimes crazy…just kidding..) cat obsession to humor readers and let them get to know her post by post. Her second blog shows a more personal approach to her writing and definitely makes you laugh out loud.

  • BLOG: It's time for the city to fully fund a neuter program

    Chickasha has a big city problem.
    It'd be hard to dispute that stray animals roam the town's streets in droves. They occupy neighborhoods, school yards, business locations, basically anywhere they might find some nosh.

  • BLOG: Staples policy of silence bad for business

    Staples announced they're closing 225 stores this week, but no one seems to have any idea what the Chickasha's location fate will be.
    Actually, let me rephrase. No one wants to discuss it.

  • V_for_Vendetta_by_Rub_a_Duckie.jpg BLOG: Film enhances sense of patriotism

    I love today.
    Every year, I have a quiet evening at home with a healthy meal, some wine and a screening of a film that touts true patriotism.
    Today is the day that shall never be forgot. It's the fifth of November.

  • Vladimir_Putin-6.jpg BLOG: Putin's hypocrisy is unbearable

  • BLOG: National media distorting real issues in Duncan tragedy

    So I was putting the final touches on the weekend edition of the paper while listening to CNN, when my blood pressure began to sky rocket. 

    Literally minutes after the Stephens County District Attorney - and our district attorney for that matter - Jason Hicks sent out a release detailing why the murder of Australian baseball player Chris Lane was not a hate crime, but old CNN decided that wasn't good for ratings.
