I live for the weekends. Seriously. It makes me sad because I spend 5 of the 7 days in a week hoping for them to quickly pass so I can get to the fun part of my week. The weekend. You may be wondering why I wish for the majority of my week to pass so quickly. (more…)

Winter White Eyebrows?

There comes a time in every young girl’s life when she looks at a magazine filled with beautiful models and says to herself, “I would like to look like that.”


The Common Cold From Hell

For most of the last week I have been sick. And I mean, I have BEEN sick. I’m not currently sick, I’m currently in Tokyo not allowing myself to be sick. But, this is what got me from there to here, besides the plane.  (more…)

The Color of Life

Punk: Chaos to CoutureFor a Life Full of Color,

Because sometimes the same ole gets boring…
So splash some color on it!!

New York Fashion Week was last week. Again. While I am sure everyone is dying to know how my NYFW went, unless you are interested in the clickety clackety of my fingers hitting the keyboard “over and over, and over, and over, and over like a monkey with a miniature symbol” we should move on.

A Razor Thief in the Night

For the Future,

Because everyone has a lesson to learn…
So this is what I have learned!
It’s Monday and that sucks. Let me tell you a story to make it better. Several years ago after a bad breakup I found myself sharing a bed with my friend Claire and sharing an apartment with my friends Megan and Claire. While most nights were filled with way too much wine to drown my sorrows, the mornings were filled with me doing my best to at least shower. As I stayed there for almost six months and much exceeded my welcome, I took a very valuable piece of knowledge with me from what should have been dark times but were actually pretty fun in retrospect.

The Home Stretch

For Leslie,
Because we’re past the last corner…
So it’s straight to the finish line from here!
