Perfume Search Done: CB I Hate Perfume (For Life)

Perfume Search Done: CB I Hate Perfume (For Life)

I have this annoying habit of buying perfumes that get discontinued. My first perfume was a Tocca Eau de Toilette, eau no longer. Second: Fresh Index Bulgarian Rose – nixed. Tokyo Milk Scarlett No. 58, off the shelves. Sigh.  But now that I’m down to the bottom of my Tokyo Milk solid, I’ve been on(…)

Who Is Badass Enough to Own This Pink Leather Kimono?

Who Is Badass Enough to Own This Pink Leather Kimono?

So, obviously, Maeven has some of the best vintage apparel that exists. But, when I saw this PINK LEATHER KIMONO, I was flabbergasted. Imagine walking into or out of *anywhere* wearing this and feeling like the most fashionable, singular, omniscient woman that ever graced the universe with her presence.

Sweet “Dreams” From Beyonce

Sweet “Dreams” From Beyonce

Boots is probably one of the few people who has the opportunity (and NERVE) to write a song that merely FEATURES Beyonce…but, I guess when you play a large part in writing, producing and playing on an album as transcendent as Beyonce, you get these types of privileges. After the critical and commercial success of(…)

Five Delicious, Citrusy Beers to Welcome Spring!

Five Delicious, Citrusy Beers to Welcome Spring!

When it comes to drinking adult beverages, I tend to go through phases. Sometimes wine, sometimes cocktails, but lately it’s been BEER all the way. I’ve had so many delicious ones lately that I can’t stop talking about…and so I will continue to talk about them here! The theme is refreshing, spring-like, citrus! 1. Great(…)
