About LookinGood

ns_spackleLife is all about looking good, isn’t it?  This site is an attempt to make sense of the nonsense, point out the absolute and the absurd and occasionally provide a little education.  Now and then I veer off the subject matter of vanity, but generally it is because someone with a particular look caught my eye.

Have fun with the site and you are welcome to request a story on something you would find interesting.  I’m always looking for new ideas.

Lookin’ good!
