A Couple Days in Chinatown

April 18, 2014

My book is due today, and writing it has been mentally consuming. I’m sorry I have been absent, but I wanted to take a second to update you on where I’ve been, because it’s been a pretty amazing month. First up, a peek at what I did while I was in New York City last […]

Everything’s Coming Up Milhouse!

November 7, 2013

Trips to Disney World are legendarily known for their magic, a notion that holds especially true for me. You see, every time I visit, something wonderful happens. Whether it’s fashion campaigns, or Good Morning Americas, or gatherings with friends… magic happens here. Which is why it’s especially fitting to be back in this place, once […]

I love you, Seattle.

September 25, 2013

I don’t want this to get weird, Seattle. But I wanna get up on you. Like, clothes on, full on junior high privates on privates rubbing. I didn’t expect this to happen, in fact I arrived pretty cranky after flying across the country next to a screaming baby. But from the second I stepped into […]

The Mexican Dress

September 15, 2013

While in Mexico, I fell in love with the gorgeous hand embroidered dresses the Mayan women were selling in their shops. I annoyed all my friends as I ducked into every roadside store digging through piles and piles of fabric, trying to find the perfect dress, my obsession being the sole thing between them and […]

Seven Days in Mexico

September 12, 2013

As we sat on our canopy bed along the beach, sleeping under our straw hats and dark sunglasses, two thin figures stepped into our sun. They were young, maybe 20, with tan skin and spiky jersey shore hair and hands full of glossy flyers. Heyyyyy you wanna go to Coco Bongo? I’m sorry what? Coco […]

Jellyfish Hands

September 9, 2013

Sometimes when I go to Mexico- and by sometimes I mean both times I have ever been there- I get a condition I call jellyfish hands. Basically I break out in an intense full body rash that makes my hands sting like I’ve been fisting jellyfish and I’m unable to use them as anything other […]

Sorry, America. I Can’t Quit You.

September 5, 2013

I wasn’t going to post while on vacation, first because Andy keeps giving me the mean face when I check my email, and two because Mexico and I are actually in a fight over the actual existence of wifi. I’m all, seriously Mexico, internet travels through the air now, stop being weird about this. And Mexico […]

Mexico

August 30, 2013

We going to Mexico. At first I thought I didn’t want to go because I had a bad experience there, but then I remembered that wasn’t me, it was the show Weeds. Plus it will be a nice break from people asking me about period sex. However, because I’m incapable of doing things like “relaxing” […]

The Selfie

July 29, 2013

Sometimes I think the front facing camera is the best invention of the 21st century. Probably even better than the segway or Bruno Mars. It’s a girl’s best friend. We know our angles and have patience with ourselves as we try to figure out how to aim the camera so our eyebrows are even and […]

The Garden State

July 23, 2013

It’s the age old dilemma. Girl has period. Girl takes wrapper off tampon. Girl drops tampon on moist looking public restroom floor in a rest stop off the I-80 Pennsylvania. Girl has no more tampons. It’s basically the plot of a mis-named Alanis Morissette song. We’re in New Jersey. We’re supposed to be in Texas […]
