A recent trip back east to visit my parents reminded me of one of the main reasons I live in California: the high humidity of Toronto left me wilted by lunchtime! But of course even here in LA the heat... Continue reading

You guys, I'm drowing here. Not literally, of course (though the toilet did overflow last night). No, I mean I'm so swamped with work that I can barely breathe. My book deadline is barreling towards me like a freight train,... Continue reading

Lately I am lighting obsessed. It's generally been something that I didn't much have on my wishlist radar, probably because I've always lived in rentals and have had a hard time justifying buying new fixtures when I was already paying... Continue reading

True story: I'm wearing stripes right now. Of course, on any given day the odds that you'll catch me in stripes are pretty darn good. They so easily cover all the bases! Stripes can be girly or tomboyish, preppy or... Continue reading

I have a confession. Although I've lived in Los Angeles for nearly two years, I didn't make it to the beach until this past weekend. Shameful, I know. But I'm putting my mistakes behind me, because now that I have... Continue reading

I've always had an anxious personality. Planning, ruminating, catastrophizing: my brain needs to control for all possible contingencies, past and future. And like the true type-A that I am, I've always applied myself rigorously to a variety of stress-reducing activities,... Continue reading

Whenever a new West Elm collection arrives, I feel a little sheepish blogging about it. I mean, it's not exactly groundbreaking news that West Elm kills it, without fail, each and every season. Yet I still can't resist putting on... Continue reading

A new epsiode of my ulive series 5 Things with Anne Sage is up! Years ago I impulsively spent entirely too much money on a silk scarf that I've ended up never wearing. While I hate holding onto things I... Continue reading

I've divulged my love of ceramics many a time before. My collection is growing slowly but surely, fueled by my affinity for the charm of handmade clay vessels. I pick up new ones when I travel, finding them at vintage... Continue reading

Navy isn't exactly the most thrilling color in the spectrum. It usually flies under the radar, content to be black's slightly less versatile cousin. As a go-to for government staffers and prepsters alike, it has earned itself something of an... Continue reading

I first met photographer Sarah Hrudka last summer when I traveled to Minneapolis and needed help with a few assignments. Sarah went above and beyond to lend a hand, not only taking gorgeous photos but also playing tour guide, chauffeur,... Continue reading

I have the utmost respect for anyone who can make the mundane marvelous with nothing more than ingenuity and elbow grease. And while I consider myself a clever enough gal, when it comes to DIY I'm useless. I couldn't hammer... Continue reading

You know how one of the keys to a lasting relationship is to make time for each other? Well, it's one thing to realize that, but it's a whole other kettle of fish actually to do it. When you're deeply... Continue reading

No matter my mood, the time of day, or the occasion, I need background music. Coffee and the crossword? Mozart, please. Cooking up a storm? Well, that's Ella Fitzgerald of course. Vacuuming the floor and scrubbing the toilet? Nothing less... Continue reading

Do you ever go through periods of feeling no-so-pretty? That's me lately. I'm working non-stop to meet my book deadline as well as keep all my other balls in the air. The long hours, combined with continually fretful sleep and... Continue reading

Don't ask me how summer got its reputation for being a glowy, gorgeous time of year. I don't know about you, but for me it's four solid months of feeling greasy, grimy, and just plain gross. My skin, when it's... Continue reading

Healthy eating is a big area of interest for me, and I love sharing my favorite recipes with you guys. However I'm also a creature of habit, so things would get pretty boring if I posted the same three meals... Continue reading

Don't you love a serendipitous discovery? I recently took a wrong turn and stumbled on a brand new cafe in LA's Highland Park area. I almost missed it, tucked as it was in an old building with an unassuming storefront.... Continue reading
