Opinions Aplenty

My mother used to say, “Opinions are like assholes. Everybody’s got one.” Or was it “Excuses are like assholes. Everybody’s got one.”? I think it was the latter. Anyway, for the sake of this post I’m going to pretend she said the first one.  My Mom was right. This girl’s got opinions aplenty! Here are […]

Introvert Experience

I’m an Introvert. I’d rather spend my weekends curled up with a good book (or watching Misfits on Hulu) than being out rubbing elbows with the young and beautiful in some Manhattan lounge. I’ve always been that this way. When I was a child, I preferred to stay inside, play with my dolls, dress my […]

Just thinking… in 2013

You know what it’s like when you run into an old friend that you’ve lost touch with? In that instant, your connection reignites and all of those good memories start to bubble up. You remember what it was that drew you to this person and you wonder why and how you ever lost touch to […]

Which of course got me jamming to some of my other favorite Raphael Saadiq songs. So please folks, allow me a minute to groove.        This […]

Running Scared

  Fashion. Simple word isn’t it? Just two syllables. Fa-shion. Easy, right? However for me, fashion isn’t simple. It’s big and often intimidating. It’s luxe brands and mingling with frugal fashion gems. It’s having the eye to sort through the pit of trend store (think Forever 21) and thrift store (think the prettied up term “vintage”) clutter and turn up with something special. Fashion can be veryyy […]

Welcome to the World

Talk about long time no see! I know. But there has been a new addition to the family. My little sis and her hubby are now the proud parents of a sweet baby girl –my new niece Kialee. Once your sibling has become someone’s wife/husband and someone else’s mother/father, can you still call them your “Little” anything […]
