It’s just hair, right? NO, the answer is no. It’s not just hair – a person’s hair can be their signature for a lifetime, or a way that they transform their image time and time again. For example, I’ve known dozens of people who change their hairstyle before or after a major life event happens (a post-breakup new ‘do = a new life, sound familiar?!).  For those of us “blessed” with a lion’s mane of hair, I’m going to share[Read more]

Hey, hey, hey – happy Monday! Hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter weekend. Yesterday, my boyfriend and I hosted Easter brunch at our place with four of our friends, and then he surprised everyone with an adult (and one dog included) Easter egg hunt! It was so much fun.

April Style Favorites: Accessories Edition

Happy Thursday, ya’ll! With the weather finally warming up, I’ve been in this mood to shop, shop, shop (I haven’t actually been shopping, just online window shopping so far!). Accessories are probably my favorite items to shop for. They are so versatile, and I get so much more use out of them than a top that I only wear only a handful of times before selling it on ebay, for example. Think about it – most of us carry a[Read more]

Who here has seen those ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan’s “Arms of an Angel” song playing with b-roll of sad, lonely, abused, neglected animals? Ughhh, I literally cry every time I watch one.

Every once in awhile, I succumb to the cult-like following of certain brands. Lush Cosmetics has officially did me in – I’m obsessed. And you know what?

10 Simple Pleasures I Enjoy in Life

Growing up, I had no idea how complicated life gets as an adult; my biggest worries were what grade I was going to earn on my calc test and if my sister would take me to the mall with her over the weekend. Now in my late twenties, life’s a tad bit more complicated these days: living and working in NYC while saving up for buying a home, debating getting a dog, trying to balance work, passion projects, and personal[Read more]
