Friday Frocks: Hot Under the Collar

By |December 27th, 2013|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

Setting the Mood: Love Always

valentines editorial mood boardMuch like death and taxes, there’s another day that’s unavoidable and sometimes just as unpleasant.  One might believe that with all my relationship mishaps, trainwrecks, and heartbreaks, I’d grow a little bitter.  Ironically enough, I’m love’s biggest fan.  I love love.  I love people who are in love.  I love being in love (though I’m starting to forget how that feels).  So rather than being bitter Betty come February 14th, how about embracing the day and spreading a little love instead?

Weekend Playlist: The Anti-Valentine

By |February 4th, 2012|Weekend Playlist|

anti valentines daySo, let’s say you’re not into the love fest that is Valentine’s Day.  Nothing wrong with that (and you are not alone, my friend).  Some of my most fun Valentine’s Days were not spent lamenting love, but cutting loose with friends instead.  Whether that included cupcakes and sappy rom-com’s at home or dancing on tables at Cipriani, a playlist was needed.  I found it much easier than expected to compile a list of songs that will have love as the furthest thing from your mind.
