I love music that makes me feel like waking up with a smile on my face, music that makes me want to wear a monochromatic red ensemble and dance on the street with strangers and music that makes me idolize Kimbra, even more than I thought I did.
Disco is back, Dame Edna dresses are back, KIMBRA IS BACK. For her second album The Golden Echo, Kimbra had a lot of pressure placed on her shoulders, but she certainly delivered and then some, especially with the ... Read More

Dirty Dancing didn’t only make household names out of Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze (R.I.P.) but it was also an iconic teen love story that made water dancing, Keds and summer camp seem cool.
This movie was iconic not only in the mom-jeans hall of fame, but it also became essential when talking about 80’s fashion, so today I’m bringing baby out of the wardrobe corner and into 2014. So without further ado, here's how to incorporate ... Read More

One look at this fully-restored and ridiculously cool vintage Airstream and I’m instantly brought back to memories of watching The Long, Long Trailer, starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz when I was a young girl with my mom. This film lent itself to many a daydream about road-tripping on the open road with only a tricked out Airstream, some great tunes and my bare essentials by my side. Even from my childhood bedroom, I could just taste the pork and ... Read More

When it comes to female directors we often think of BO$$ ladies like Sofia Coppola, Kathryn Bigelow, and Sarah Polley, but then…we begin to get stumped. This isn’t because there aren’t passionate women in the film industry, but more so the fact that those women aren’t being put in positions of power.
According to the website womenmakemovies, the statistics about female directors in Hollywood are depressing. In 2013, only 16% of directors, ... Read More

Two months ago, I moved to New York City from a much smaller town and I can honestly tell you, I’ve been catcalled or talked to by strangers in public more in the past two months than in my entire life.
When I’m walking down the street and a guy yells, “Hey mami, smile for me,” I’m grossed out, offended and, frankly, a bit terrified. When I’m at Jamba Juice and another customer comes up to me and says, “My friend thinks ... Read More

The only place that is deemed “socially acceptable” for women to breastfeed is either the confines of their own home or on the squishy sofas in department store bathrooms. But what if there isn’t a fancy chaise lounge to rest your tired new-mother body in the bathroom?
Well, there is certainly no place for you in public to breastfeed your baby in peace.
HOWEVER, two of my queens Alanis Morisette and Olivia Wilde are taking a stand against the ... Read More
