Fresh Look

This past year has bred lots of introspectiveness as well as new beginnings for me. While I have always been a writer and (even had some essays published) being sick this last year allowed me the chance to focus on my creativity in a way that was more then I had been doing. It allowed me to grow, and even ….

Wedded and Bedded

I was amazed by the incredible feedback I received on my essay “Single in the City.”  Strangers and friends alike wrote to me about their opinions on the subject and the common theme was that it needs to be discussed more.

Instead it is sultry seductions and duck faces, which let us be honest, are more sexy in our heads then in real life. I am ….

Mordance Season IV: A Review

When your cousin is a ballet dancer, you go to a lot of ballet. And when your cousin starts her own ballet company, you go and support, even if you would rather stay home on a Thursday night, watch trashy Lifetime movies and paint nails. Family first is and always has been my motto. Thankfully going to a Mordance show, ….

A Shoe Affair

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world. ~ Marilyn Monroe I havs this little substance abuse problem…It is called expensive footwear ~ Carrie Bradshaw This beautiful weather has got me all kinds of excited. My feet are very happy feet. I can throw those boots away and let my feet breathe and my toes do ….

Trust: Tales From the Dating Underworld

“We’re never so vulnerable than when we trust someone – but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy.” ~Walter Anderson Trust.
