Beauty Buzz: Love Me, Love Me Not
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

curtis kulig love meBefore there was a Christian Louboutin next to the deli on my block (before a bag of chips cost $10), there used to be an art gallery with big glass windows.  Inside this gallery was a huge neon sign, a beacon of glowing red ligt in the night, that said, “Love Me.”  I wished so badly I had the wall space and cash to acquire this piece of art that’s basically my life’s motto.  Little did I know, this was from the same street artist who has made his mark all over New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo with his signature, “Love Me”  campaign.  You may have seen it scribbled on everything from the side of a building to the side of a meat truck.  The man behind this beautiful mantra?  Curtis Kulig.  Not only is his message beautiful, he’s not too bad to look at, ladies.

Setting the Mood: Turn it Down
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

muted color paletteWell, in case you were wondering, neon is a HUGE trend for summer.  So huge, in fact, that I’m already over it.  Having arrived back in New York, I could not believe how much neon I saw on the gorgeous girls of Manhattan.  It wasn’t just a matter of a bright sighting here and there… It was more like packs of girls who looked like a pack of highlighters.  Each lovely lady clad in a dayglow shade.  Well, I knew I’d had enough when I, myself, was sporting a tank top as bright as the highlighted passages in my summer reading.  Everywhere I looked, someone else was wearing a similar style.  I wanted to hide, but it’s awfully difficult to be inconspicuous when sunglasses are needed just to take a gander in my direction.

So what better antidote to neon than the muted shades of a summer sky?  For once, being subdued will be what makes you stand out.

Setting the Mood: Hallucinate a Heatwave
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

Mark Twain once said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.”  Well, he certainly wasn’t kidding.  One would think living in California is all palm trees and sunshine… well, not so much.

After returning from the east coast this week, I realized how much I miss a real summer.  You know, the almost unbearable heat that lingers long past sunset and the humidity that can curl even the most perfectly coifed ‘do.  While it rarely dips below forty in California, the summers are never as warm as those of the east coast.  It never, ever feels like summer.  ”They” tell me it gets warm starting in September, but I don’t buy it.

These bright brights are just going to have to get me through the mild California summer.  Perhaps wearing something bright will radiate its own heat.
