It is truly an art. But once you figure it out, it’s the best drug you can be addicted to. Ever since I started working downtown in 2010, I’ve been basking in the joys of good food and good company. So much so that I had gained my “Freshman 15″ that I hadn’t in University. [...]

I’ve been craving some down time to myself and I thought hitting up Michael’s and making some bracelets were the way to go! I made some new Chan Luu inspired [...]

Wow, its been a while hasn’t it?! I’ve been busy making the most of my summer because as you know with the blink of an eye there’s only a couple weeks of summer left. Every time I hear that phrase I cringe a little…Moving on! For the past couple of weeks, the weather has been [...]

How is it that I’m four months late in discovering The Rocket Summer‘s Of Men and Angels Album?! This is awesome. This album retains the catchy driving rhythms and melodies from his previous album, Do You Feel? (which I LOVED!). I haven’t even finished listening to the entire album yet, but so far my faves [...]

I think this type of advertising certainly makes [...]
