Creatively speaking I'm pretty well-rounded. I'm good with words, I can confidently improvise in the kitchen, and I hold my own with a camera. But one area in which I come up dismally short is drawing. My art skills stalled... Continue reading

What's your stance on Valentine's Day? I don't go whole hog for it (red roses? no thanks!) but I am in favor of anything that asks us to think more about love—for our partners, for our friends and family, and... Continue reading

Think of this not as outfit post but as a two part public service announcement. First of all, have you watched Peaky Blinders on Netflix? If the answer is no, you gotta get on it. Not only are the plot... Continue reading

Confession: I'm a trivia nerd. I hungrily collect factoids and hoard them like a kid does Halloween candy. My favorite TV show is Jeopardy, I can easily get lost down a dictionary rabbit hole, and I frequently pause conversations to... Continue reading

I don't often post images of my home on Instagram. No, let me rephrase that. There are a handful of corners that I've deemed photo-worthy, and I share them ad nauseum. For the most part, however, I've got small windows... Continue reading

Increasingly these days I look at myself and feel like I'm seeing my mother. I'll be sitting in the car when the mere sight of my hands—with their slightly pudgy fingers, their sprinkling of freckles, and their confident grip on... Continue reading

With Valentine's Day barreling towards us like a doily-bedecked freight train, my thoughts can't help but turn to romance and all-things pretty. And when it comes to hair, it doesn't matter what color, length or texture you have; healthy locks... Continue reading

I've had a crush on Vrai & Oro for a while. Since last Spring the label has taken the approach of brands like Everlane and Warby Parker (decrease overhead, cut out the middleman, deliver designer quality at a fraction of... Continue reading

I think of myself as a creative person, but not as a crafty person. All those DIY projects on Pinterest? I admire them from afar but never attempt them myself. I'm easily flummoxed by technology—everything from computers to X-Acto knives—and... Continue reading
