Hello! I'm so sorry about the radio silence here these past few days. My blog host was hacked and it took a little while to resolve the issue. But I'm very grateful to the Typepad team for their diligence in... Continue reading

I've been a big fan of decor site Lulu & Georgia ever since they launched last year. Founder Sara Sugarman really knows her stuff—her family's been in the interiors business since 1955—and she's created a brand that is at once... Continue reading

Since moving to Los Angeles a year and a half ago, I've been slooooowly but steadily decorating my space. Living room, dining room, and bedroom have all been furnished in more or less recognizable form. However one room—a second bedroom... Continue reading

Remember summers as a kid when you seemed to spend more time in the pool than out of it? Your fingers would get pruney, you'd permanently have water trapped in your ears, and your hair would become crispy, fried, and... Continue reading

I recently read a fantastic nonfiction book called The Devil in the White City. It's been around for a while, but it's due for some renewed attention owing to the fact that it's in development as a film starring Leonardo... Continue reading

I've often thought that if Elaine Benes were an actual person, not a fictional TV character, she and I would be BFF's. We'd get together for a girls' outing, swap crazy boss stories, try out new dance moves, and rate... Continue reading

Love is a tricky business. Unless you've been blissfully bound to your sandbox sweetie since kindergarten, starting a new relationship can seem more trouble than it's worth. Then, once you are coupled up, serious effort is required to keep things... Continue reading

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is cruise through the neighborhood for garage sale furniture castoffs. I've happened across some major finds this way: a midcentury barcart for $5, a fab upholstered chair for $8,... Continue reading

Anyone who knows me even passingly well knows that I have two favorite foods. The first, ice cream, stirs me to such a frenzy that I could devote not a single post but an entire blog to its greatness. And... Continue reading

The canvas tote will always hold a special place in my heart. Today they're a dime a dozen—even de rigeur in cities that have banned plastic bags—but remember back in elementary school when totes were reserved exclusively for storytime outings... Continue reading

I never used to be a lemon kinda girl. Whenever the dessert menu would circulate at restaurants, I'd choose chocolate over the lemon option without fail. The same went for savories. No lemon vinaigrettes, preserves, or zests, thank you very... Continue reading

Indigo. Prussian. Midnight. Ink. By any name, deep dark blue is having a moment. On small pieces like a hand-dyed linen tablecloth or a shibori pillow this hue adds sophistication and gravitas; on large items like a sofa, chair, or... Continue reading

Today marks the twenty-eighth day of the 60-Day Bikram Yoga Challenge I'm doing (more about that here). So far it's been quite a journey. I'm happy to say I'm still going strong! The one downside, however, is the continual deluge... Continue reading

Last summer I teamed up with hair guru Heidi Marie Garrett and photographic genius Danielle Snelson of The Why We Love Photography to share a quick and pretty up-do hair tutorial. The post has been so wildly popular that we... Continue reading

In elementary school, art class was the highlight of my week. I can still recall the smell of the studio, a mix of crayon wax and wood scraps, soggy paste and drying paint. From papier mache dioramas to unintentionally abstract... Continue reading

Since my last instagram round-up featured the droolworthy photo talents of some favorite dessert bloggers, I thought it only fitting that I provide a healthy antidote to those sweet visual smorgasbords. After all, summer is just around the corner, and... Continue reading

Raise your hand if you still haven't adjusted to the cruel and unusual punishment that is Daylight Savings Time. I would raise mine but I'm frankly too exhausted. Forget work, forget responsibilities. All I want to do since we moved... Continue reading

I'm very excited to introduce you to my sweet new puppy, Sadie! I adopted her a week ago from a rescue agency and already I can't imagine life without her. Sadie is about 7 months old, and the vet thinks... Continue reading

Yesterday I shared my fondess for the dark florals that seem to have taken hold of our collective aesthetic consciousness this season. So today I figured I'd do a little round-up of products to get the look. It seemed like... Continue reading

Yesterday marked the launch of a gorgeous new photography shop featuring prints by Ashley Woodson Bailey. Not only is Ashley's work stunning in and of itself, it reflects a broader movement I've noticed lately towards all things moody and dark.... Continue reading

When it comes to vacations, I will always choose a spa getaway. Sure the beach is great, and I love the big city. But why on earth would you opt for sandy toes or a traffic headache if you could... Continue reading

There are many pieces that I associate with characteristic American style—jeans, tees, rattail mullets—but none is quite so quintessential as the baseball cap. From truckers and rappers to prepsters to, well, actual baseball players, everyone has put their spin on... Continue reading

Last Saturday I embarked on a journey. I signed up for a 60-day challenge at Bikram Yoga Pasadena. Just as its name suggests, the challenge requires me to complete 60 Bikram classes in 60 days. I dived in with the... Continue reading

A few weeks ago I made a very important airport run. I circled the terminals of LAX, waiting with anticipation for the flight from Delhi via London. Before leaving my house I'd made sure that my trunk was completely empty.... Continue reading

The last time I set out to write a blog post about my makeup faves, it unexpectedly turned into a mini essay on self-improvement versus self-acceptance. As you may recall from that beauty post gone rogue, I decided that grooming... Continue reading
