Embrace your Quirks

A few weeks ago, I read a magazine article discussing how men fell in love with girls’ quirks.  The guy writing the article loved how one girlfriend always used to wear red converses.  He loved how another always used to eat the same kind of pie for dessert.  Made me realize that you should really embrace the weird little things that make you unique…someone could be falling in love with that quirk. Some things that I will no longer worry about? People giving me strange looks when I read a magazine starting from the back cover.  People commenting on how I sometimes snort when I laugh too hard. The fact that I sometimes don’t want to fix the mousy brown frizz-fest on the top of my head…also known as my hair. I will also no longer feel ashamed pulling my hand away when someone holds it the “wrong” way.

So, girls (and guys), go out and be your quirky self.  Someone will love you for it!

“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.”
-Harry Burns, When Harry Met Sally


Shine On…

The holidays are coming, and we need to add some sparkle! Get inspired by the icicles and snow that are bound to show up in the coming months.

Sparkle Bib Necklace
The perfect accessory to brighten up a simple dress. Great to transition from work to night.

Crushed Glitter Magic Wallet
Just because it is fun!

Sequined Starland Tank

Pair with jeans for a night out. Wear with a skirt and blazer for the holiday office party.

Deco-jeweled Headband

Don’t want to go overboard but need that hint of sparkle? This headband is perfect.

Belted Sequin Dress
It has a hint of the 80s and would be great for a New Year’s Eve party!

Happy Thanksgiving

I spent Thankgiving Eve with some of my best friends, and now am spending Thanksgiving day with my family. I could not ask for anything better!
We all have a lot to be thankful for this year!

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving!


La La

So, during my senior year of high school, my school won a radio contest and got to have Ashlee Simpson and Ryan Cabrera perform a private concert for us. This “concert” happened less than a week after her infamous Saturday Night Live performance…she did sing live at our school!

Somehow, someone found a video of her the concert on the Ashlee Simpson Show on YouTube…so ridiculous!


The Pond

Need something cheap and fun to do in New York City this winter? Visit The Pond and the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park!
Ice-skating is free (and only $12 for rental skates) and it is not as much of a tourist trap as Rockefeller Center is during the upcoming months.

It was a spur-of-the-moment decision (and I was slightly nervous since I had only been skating one other time), but my friends and I had a great time when we went the night it opened!

What will you be doing in NYC this winter??


A Happy Ending

Alex: Look, I can’t stop thinking about you. I… It’s a problem. I drive by your place; I call and hang up; I’ve turned into…
Gigi: Me.
Alex: Yeah.
Gigi: A wise person once told me that if a guy wants to be with a girl, he will make it happen, no matter what.
Alex: That’s true.
Gigi: But when I was hurling my body onto yours, you did not seem to want to make it happen.
Alex: Okay, yeah, here’s the thing about that… You were right. I’d gotten so used to keeping myself at a safe distance from all these women and having the power that, that I didn’t know what it felt like when I actually fell for one of them… I didn’t know.
Gigi: Look, I just went out with your friend Bill. He might be just exactly what I need. No drama, he calls; he does what he says…
Alex: I can do that stuff too…
Gigi: But you didn’t! And that same wise person told me that I’m the rule. That I have to stop thinking that every guy will change, that I have to stop thinking that…
Gigi: … I’m the exception…
Alex: You are ‘my’ exception.
