Massive Love for Sync Studio!

Massive Love for Sync Studio!

As you guys know, I have been spinning a lot lately. PA Nicole says it’s my favorite thing to talk about, and that might be true. Now that I have found a convenient and inspiring place to work out, it’s hard not to talk about someplace where I happily spend MANY hours a week. But! SyncStudio(…)

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(…)

Party Time Deals

I’ve been neck deep in grad student conference planning, and I have somehow managed to discover a few things that you may want to learn. If you are inclined to click away from this post, think again. I’m not referring to the latest interpretation of Édouard Glissant’s Poetics of Relation. Instead, I’m referring to the stressful(…)

Hip Hop Spinning Workout of My Dreams with KTX

  A few weeks ago I randomly happened upon a youtube video of what looked like the world’s best indoor cycling class and thought “that is the best thing ever but it is happening in a faraway place and therefore I will likely never get to experience it” and was momentarily saddened by that thought.(…)

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(…)

The Thanksgiving Croissant Is Back at Momofuku Milk Bar!

If you don’t know about the Momofuku Milk Bar Thanksgiving Croissant, you better ask somebody! Conveniently for you, I’m here to tell you all about it without you even having to ask. Milk Bar manages to further glorify the already-glorious month of November with a croissant in which the dough is seasoned like stuffing and(…)

Animals Ask People: Caycee Black of Black + Graze

Caycee Black has been a friend for over a decade and it’s been an absolute joy to watch her tackle creative endeavor after creative endeavor. She’s obviously preciously beautiful, and we love her because she shares so many of our own favorite perspectives: that Paulie Gee’s is the best, that you should pursue the projects(…)

Animals Ask People: Caris Reid

Animals Ask People: Caris Reid

I first met Caris a little more than a year ago at the Richardson, where we quickly delved into an intense conversation about all things occult over tequila cocktails. I was pleased to later find that the mystery that infused our conversation was but a tip of the iceberg that makes Caris Reid a fascinating(…)

Animals Ask People: Amy Yee of Maeven

Animals Ask People: Amy Yee of Maeven

If you love vintage clothing and accessories as much as I do, you know that it can be really difficult to find a store or seller that matches your taste. Maeven is like the rare vintage unicorn I’ve been seeking all my life – the selection is big, but not overwhelmingly so and everything is(…)
