I’m a dinosaur when it comes to knowing about cool new apps and sites. I’d like to blame it on not having an iPhone or iPad, but it’s clear that I’m just not hip with the trends, so leave it to Time to put together a 50 Best Websites of 2011 list and distract me for half an hour. I was thrilled to see my ongoing obsession Pinterest featured — a site where you...
Even though LA is 75 degrees just about year-round, I still like to feign the feeling of seasons with little shifts in my fashion and design palette. So I’ve already got some obsessions for my fall/winter wardrobe, new apartment (!), and soon-to-begin ballet classes with Kosha. I’m a bit strange and like to grow my hair in spring/summer, and cut it short for fall/winter, so even...

With this being said, never did I...
Boy, did I need to hear these words. You gain strength, courage, and...– Eleanor Roosevelt (via skelets)
Even as a communications professional, I still find Twitter overwhelming from time to time, especially if you like food in LA (a million foodies in this city!) but I love that I can always count on my feed to tell me what awesome obscure holiday it is, like today’s Ice Cream Sandwich Day. So in honor of the special day, I am sharing an ode to my absolute favorite ice cream sandwich purveyor...
