How To Ward Off a Crush & Be Crushed On

11:00 AM

It might have happened to you. That moment you become a little fearful, yet somewhat flattered, of someone who is obsessing over you. He or she may show up uninvited or constantly text/call/e-mail you even though you provide little to no response. You don’t have the heart to tell him or her to leave you alone, or maybe you do but he or she mistook your straight-forwardness for playing hard-to-get.

Keep on reading for ways to ward off a hardcore crush and learn how to be crushed on! (more…)

NYC Pride Parade: Straight People Rock Rainbows Too

11:48 AM

Gay PrideHappy Pride! The pride parade is something I always look forward to every year I’m in New York City, especially this year with the death of DOMA. A couple was carrying a poster that read “Together for 20 years, married for 8, finally legal.” People lined the streets from Midtown on 5th Avenue all the way down to Greenwich, watching from behind the barricades or from apartment windows and balconies.

Love Lace? Get the Look on Your Nails!

11:45 AM

I'm constantly on the hunt for easy and cute nail art ideas. Keyword being easy. I honestly can't stand having a solid-colored manicure because I get bored of it in less than a day and everyone else has the same thing. Nail art allows your personality to shine through in a different way than the obvious hair and style choices. Plus, everyone will be jealous of your pretty nails and will never believe you did them yourself! (more…)

Trending: Stripes!

11:13 AM

Trend

People might be intimidated by wearing striped tops, jeans, dresses, etc. Stripes have the reputation of making you look wider than you truly are. However, according to a style report on TLC, “A perception expert at the University of York in the U.K. found that when two women of the same size wore horizontally and vertically striped dresses, the woman wearing the horizontal stripes appeared thinner. These experiments were based on the Helmholtz square illusion, first created in the eighteenth century, and suggest that horizontal stripes may help slim the figure by creating a 3D effect and introducing depth.”

Check out a few easy ways to look great and feel confident wearing stripes! (more…)

Torn by Ronny Kobo

I love bows, tutus, tulle, heels, flowy silhouettes and everything else that sounds super girly. The only problem? I hate dresses. Well, let's clarify: I hate wearing dresses but I love the idea of them. I'm the type of girl who literally wears jeans and a tee every day. It's just comfortable and easy, which dresses, to me, are not. However, when I first saw the Torn by Ronny Kobo dresses that came in yesterday I instantly fell in love. (more…)

In My World it’s Better to be Sorry than Safe

11:15 AM

Better safe than sorry?  I’d rather take risks and live to tell the story. Although I do feel safer knowing that Spider-Man is protecting the streets here in NYC…

SpidermanYou know when you do something stupid, intentionally, thinking it’s a brilliant idea at the time – only to turn around and realize how terrible of a decision it was. Take today for example. On the way to the gym, a good friend and I were about to go through the subway turnstile when she realized she forgot her card at home. So our brilliant minds decided to get close and go through as one person. So we swiped the card, pushed through and made it to the other side (success!)…right in front of two police officers…LOL! Turns out that’s illegal (who knew?) and it’s a $100 fine per person. Luckily they were nice enough to let us go with a warning, but in retrospect we probably should’ve checked to see that there weren’t cops around…or…errh…I mean we should’ve been good citizens and not have tried to cheat the system? Yea – that one.

This little incident had me thinking about all my style choices in the past that now, in retrospect, I realize were horribly misguided but made for great laughs.  (more…)

The Stages of Love – Part One

11:37 AM

Valentine's Day can be tricky if you are not in a relationship.  Not because it has to be, but because we tend to make it that way.  You know, it's that day that you are supposed to be focused on love and relationship – as if you don't have to think about it any other time. The way you decide to celebrate is definitely influenced by what stage you are at in your relationship… if you are in one at all.  Even if you are not currently in a relationship you can still go out and have a great time.  In this post I am going to share some ideas for Stages 1 of Love.
