Mee Chow DOES Make the Best Sandwiches

I am just brimming with Boston nostalgia today! Between the Red Sox winning the World Series opener last night (go Sox!) and this list I found on Facebook, I am having serious BU withdrawal. It's ridiculously long, but SO right on. I would die for a fro yo from Ankara Cafe right NOW. You Know You're a BU Student When:You somehow got to live in a brownstone, Myles or Shelton as a freshman, but that means you have no friends. Your Chancellor rules with an iron fist… well, the only one that he Continue Reading [...]

Check out Violet on the Runway

I had an indulgent summer slash early fall, from a literary perspective. I rarely departed from the YA/teen novel category. This is not SO unusual, I do subscribe to two teen magazines (Teen Vogue and Seventeen). Teen novels are like grilled cheese sandwiches. You feel sort of guilty ordering them because they're kind of juvenile, they aren't REALLY substantial enough to constitute a balanced meal, but they're SO good and there's really no substitute when you're craving one. So when I received Continue Reading [...]

Free That Curl

I've been ignoring my curls for YEARS and I sort of do feel bad about it. I've really limited wearing my curls to rainy or excessively humid days because you never really know what you're going to GET with curly hair. You know? It's like the proverbial box of chocolates. That's why I don't dare rock curls when I go OUT. Who knows what chicanery could ensue? And would I have time to rewash and restyle? PLUS, my layers and bangs situ must be long enough to be curly. AND my cra hair actually Continue Reading [...]

"You Need to Access Your Uncrazy Side."

Darryl Philbin KILLS me, dolls. The newest gloss in my rotation these days is Hourglass Lip Gloss in Truth (fourth one from the right, pictured above). It's a nudish-pink, water resistant, non-sticky more-like-a-liquid-lipstick gloss that lasts for.ev.er. (To be said in the voice of that kid from The Sandlot). Perfection with a smoky eye and some bombshell hair and tastes/smells of vanilla. I love the sleek packaging, but have to say that it results in the wand being a little awkwardly long Continue Reading [...]

"Where You Drink Champagne and it Tastes Just Like Cherry COLA…"
