There are countless businesses under construction in my Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park. Most of them have been in the works for months, their completion delayed by permitting and red tape, and every morning when I walk the dogs... Continue reading

In the fall I moved unexpectedly from the apartment I'd lived in since arriving in LA two years ago. It meant that I had to return the mattress I'd been using to the friends who'd lent it to me. But... Continue reading

My maternal grandmother grew up in Germany, and when she came here to the States in the 1950's she brought many of her cultural touchstones with her. One of those was the kaffeeklatsch, an informal afternoon gathering of women over... Continue reading

I don't know about you, but historically the guys in my life have been much harder to shop for than the girls. With women, it seems like you can always fall back on feel-good basics like a sumptuous sweater, soft... Continue reading

I love living in Los Angeles, but cannot wait to visit my family in Toronto for the holidays. This time last year I was already there, getting my annual fix of snowy walks, skating excursions, and hot cocoa breaks. It's... Continue reading

What was the best Christmas gift you received when you were little? I have a few that stand out (a wooden train set when I was three, my first American Girl doll when I was six) but the one that... Continue reading

I've known Nichole McIver of Acanthus Jewelry for a few years now. Though all of our interactions happen in the online space, her smile shines through every email and Instagram comment she writes. Nichole is one of those people who... Continue reading

Pets have it hard. Really. All day long, they're hustling for food, napping like it's going out of style, and assiduously avoiding requests for help with chores. Plus if you're as lucky, your pets take it upon themselves to inspect... Continue reading

You know the saying 'a book is a gift you can open again and again'? It's cheesy but so true. Whenever I'm in doubt about what to give someone, a book is the answer. For a book is more than... Continue reading

If you ask me my favorite meal, I'll tell you it's a neck-and-neck tie between breakfast and dessert. So a recipe that doubles as either a nutritious start or a sweet ending to the day gets gets double points in... Continue reading

I consider myself a pretty good gifter. I love combing the shops for the ultimate present, one that conveys a level of thought that reflects my care and appreciation for the recipient. So when Zappos contacted me to be a... Continue reading

Here in the States it's an unofficial holiday—everyone needs the day off work to burn through the haze of their turkey coma. Fortunately I'm feeling pretty spry since I stuck to my plan for stress-free eating on Thanksgiving, which means... Continue reading

I have always been fascinated by the crossover of different industries. I love to see how seemingly unrelated fields inform and inspire each other, and to discover what can be learned at the points of intersection. So when Lincoln Black... Continue reading

I am notoriously hard to shop for. My taste is very particular, and if there's something I want badly enough during the year, I find a way to get it myself. It makes it nearly impossible to surprise me! In... Continue reading

One of my favorite classes in college focused on the material history of the Middle Ages, with the topic of medieval dress fascinating me the most. The sheer variety of accoutrements from the period is nearly impossible to count, with... Continue reading

Can I get a TGIF? This week was a doozy. It started with emergency dog surgery and ended with a stolen wallet. Needless to say I'm more than ready for the weekend! I'm looking forward to a gratitude workshop tomorrow,... Continue reading
