That One Time I Saw My Brother Illustrated in a...
I may be 2000 miles away from my family but that doesn’t mean I don’t stop seeing bits and pieces of their personalities crop up in weird places around me. This post is dedicated to my brother Earl whose favorite animal is the octopus. I was reading the Spirit Magazine on my flight yesterday and spotted a kids illustration of a group of small children at an aquarium. You have to...
Stone Cold Fox
Let’s take a moment to give the carousel bangle from Kate Spade a round of applause, shall we? I’m not a watch person. In high school, I had a fancy Dooney & Bourke watch that was very razzle dazzle and definitely wouldn’t translate well into being worn outside of the 2002-2006 time frame. I also had this Christmas wreath ringwatch that I absolutely adored and wore more...

Hey Ross! It’s you! I just want you to remember this feeling. You are...– Ross Geller’s answering machine message to himself, “The One with the Ride Along” Friends
Earthquake Last Night?
4.1? In Malibu, which isn’t far from where I live? I didn’t feel it in my sleep? But I woke up at 1 AM in desperate need of water? Good going, deep sleeping self.
SF, I Love You
In the two years since I was last in the city by the Bay, some things have changed and others haven’t. Writing that sentence “in the two years since I was last in the city by the Bay” takes this post down a depressing road before it even begins. You’d think with a 90 minute flight time between SF and LA this wouldn’t be the case. But the last two years for me...
Things I Don't Do During Summer
Because it’s summertime and the living is easy/breezy/beautiful CoverGirl. 1) Tan Physically, I can’t do it. My skin is far too fair for the sun. This year in particular I’ve taken to keeping a small vial of sunscreen in my handbag because you never know whether I might be trapped in an outdoor setting for too long in a sleeveless blouse. I tend to turn rosy easy and burn...
Chronicling My Friendship with Sara in GIF Form
I have a friend named Sara who is an incredibly awesome lady. Come with me on the journey of our friendship/relationship/co-dependency on one another as documented by a bunch of GIFs. When we first started living together and I would hear her in the kitchen making breakfast and being awake at 8 AM on a Saturday while I continued to lie in my bed and not move until 11 AM. (Note: I now wake...
“Businesses are already singing the praises of Pinterest and trying to get their products pinned by consumers. So, Pinterest shouldn’t have a very hard time growing in terms of profit and popularity this year.” -actual set of sentences from a guest blogger that I am attempting to edit. It’s nice to know that grown adults representing corporations still write like college...
10 Summertime Goals
Using a picture of Romy and Michele wearing Post-It dresses to preface this post with its seriousness of the things I can and will accomplish by the end of August. Though technically I am no longer a student at this point and so my summer lasts FOREVER. In no particular order: 1) Go on a juice cleanse and write about my pain and suffering on the caffeine withdraw front. We’ll save...
Giving up on the 30 day challenge 4 days deep because this list is getting ridiculous in both question topic and length and I’m bored already and also not too big on writing all about me, me, me! for 30 days straight.
Day 04: Your Views on Religion
My dad used to quote a scene from this movie (don’t remember the name of it but if you do, let me know because I really want to watch it) in which there was a man lost in an ocean trying desperately to swim to a nearby island and keep from drowning. While the island still looked far off, he pleaded with God saying that if he made it to the island he would attend church services for the rest of his...
Day 03: Your Views on Drugs and Alcohol
*Note: MY VIEWS. Not on behalf of anyone or anywhere I work for. Just me.* From a personal standpoint yes I do enjoy alcohol, with an endless amount of drinks I can cite as my favorites. I’ve had some memorable moments with the sauce, most of which took place in college, and have since tapered off considerably which is hardly surprising. Once upon a time, I also used to smoke pot. This...
Day 02: Where You'd Like to be in 10 Years
Happy in both my professional and personal life with a fantastic wardrobe.
30 Day Challenge/ Day 01
I am notoriously awful when it comes to completing these but I will try my best to get this one done. Day 01 – Your Current Relationship, if single discuss how single life is. I like being single. I have a very different mindset when it comes to relationships than most people I know. I grew up with two parents who loved one another very much and have been great influences for my brothers...
The guy I used to have a crush on in high school just accepted my LinkedIn request. It’s the little things in life, you know? And he is still just as beautiful as ever.
