Everything’s Coming Up Milhouse!

FGW Book Sign

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 […]

The Mexican Dress

Brittany Dress Detail

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 a […]

Seven Days in Mexico

Tres Rios

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

The rash

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.

Mexico Days 1

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 […]

The Selfie

Lemme Take Your Picture Collage

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

Long Branch

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 […]

Orlando is for Families…and Overdraft Fees.

Fort De Soto

Once or twice a year we head down to Florida. It’s an absolute privilege my children get as a byproduct of having in-laws and friends that now reside in the Sunshine State. Last week I did a little venting on the myth that is the “family vacation.” I blame the steroids I was on for […]
