Everything You Need For Your Halloween Party.
We are not really big on Halloween at our house. I think we started paying more attention to it when we had our kids. The only part I do enjoy is giving candies out to the kids in the Neighborhood. Also,  let’s not forget that it’s a little reminder that Christmas is near. Even though we’re […]

Gray Malin at Home
I remember the first time I saw any of Gray Malin’s work, it was of his Marfa series, where he photographed the Elmgreen & Dragset Prada Marfa sculpture, (yes, it’s a sculpture – not a store in the middle of a Texas desert as many people have confused). Soon after, I came across Gray’s aerial […]

BUSTING THE ONE SIZE FITS ALL MYTH

SHOPPING SPOTLIGHT: VANITY FAIR SPORT BRA
You know the saying, “when you look good, you feel good?” I think a similar idea applies to working out! I’m not a big fan of the gym–the sweating, baggy clothes, and feeling wholly unkempt are usually a pretty good deterrent for me, to be honest. That being said, I know it’s something I *should* […]
