How to: Distressed Denim & Crystal Bermuda Shorts

I recently came into a boatload of sew-on crystals, and now I want to embroider them onto *everything* in my life. I made a faborama fancy necklace for my Emmy Awards adventure and since then have been eyeballing everything, with a “are you bedazzalable?” glare. I pinned these sweet jeans from Anthropologie awhile back, and…

How to: Make Labels for Your Pantry

My kitchen cabinets had officially hit rock bottom. It was pretty bad, friends. It was a sea of plastic bulk food baggies, half-full boxes of pasta, opened packages of nuts/rice/flour–it was such a disaster I never really knew what the heck I had. Stuff like this drives me CRAZY (Libra, here). I’ve…

How to: Make Vanilla Rose Bath Salts

I’m really really reallllllly into salt baths. Ever since my knee injury, they’ve been my consistent little luxury. I take one just before bed, to help me unwind and to take the deep aching feeling that I often get in my right hip and quad while I’m still restrengthening my entire lower body. I…

Palm Springs Paradise

10 Reasons to Love Los Angeles

I’m coming up on 1 year living in Los Angeles at the end of June. Crazy how fast year one went. Although I’ll always consider myself a New Yorker (born in Syracuse and lived in NYC for about 100 years), I value the change of pace and the new perspective…

How to: Arrange Flowers Like a Pro

Put down the grocery store bouquet! You are better than that! This past weekend I popped into Whole Foods to grab my mother some pretty petals. Their pre-arranged bouquets were predictable, boring and reminded me of stock bouquets from ProFlowers. Womp womp….There was no creativity, no interesting color combinations,…
