There are 93874298374893274 beauty products on the market today (give or take), but many of those will be gone in a year, into the #BeautyFail abyss. Yet some have been around since before your mom started wearing rouge and are still popular as ever because well, they work. Here are ten old-school classics that have […]

miss america miss new york

I’m just going to say it. It kinda’ blows my mind that beauty pageants still exist in 2014. It’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that females choose to dedicate their formative years to participating in contests where they are judged on how they look in bikinis and prom dresses, average […]

FOMO was setting in hardcore this week for fashion/celebrity/NYC enthusiasts who weren’t at Fashion Week (and even for those who were but didn’t have A-lister access). Lucky for us: Instagram. In case you weren’t sitting next to Rihanna at Alexander Wang or backstage primping with Karlie Kloss, take a look and feel like you were […]

sts 2

Peace up, A-town down, shawty! What? Sorry. I got excited because it’s been a minute since my last A List and I can’t wait to share some things going down in our glorious city from food to beauty to BALLS. Now that I have your attention… Bring Me Back Something French Krog Street Market, Ponce […]

tiger cub playing with dog

Sorry for yelling. That’s the first time I’ve all-capped a title….but it probably won’t be the last. I cannot stop watching this video (you may have already seen it because it’s old and has 3 million views but whatever). For the record, if I had a tiger cub in my apartment right now jumping from […]

banana hammock

After years of waiting, I’ve finally found THE ONE. Obviously I’m talking about a blender. The Blendtec Designer 725 (AKA WildSide) is literally the smartest and most advanced home blender in the world (not mention attractive), so falling in love was easy. It has a 1725 watt motor–the most powerful in residential blending, so it reduces […]

kimono

I refuse to say sayonara to summer until September 22, but that doesn’t mean I’m not pumped for fall fashion (read: wearing leggings six days a week, what?). But there is one item I’m especially excited to flip the script on: The kimono. I wore them over my swimsuits this summer (whilst mixing vodka dranks on the […]

basic cake

There’s been a lot of talk about being “basic” lately, specifically being a “basic bitch.” I read the Buzzfeed article “25 Things All Basic White Girls Do in the Fall” and well, I thought it was dumb as f*ck. I mean, did you just copy this from some “shit girls like” list and put “basic and […]

gisele under armour

I just watched Gisele’s Under Armour commercial and cried. Definitely never thought I would write that sentence. I’m not a celebrity by any stretch, but with this blog, I put myself, my opinions, and my actions out into the world for public scrutiny, and I have received more meant comments than I can count (“You’re […]

dewey beach sunset

Did you read Part 1 and Part 2? Rob did bring me a coffee (because he values his life), and in an attempt to make up for the abandonment, he had Dewey written on the cup, which is not only the name of my dog (who you may know from Instagram), but also our next […]

washington dc

(In case you missed Part 1) I begrudgingly left the Best Place on Earth and Rob put me in charge of finding food in Asheville (THE PRESSURE). After pretending to look up restaurants on my phone for 10 minutes but really just scrolling Instagram, I quickly crowd-sourced my Facebook friends and received a few glowing recommendations […]

hotel domestique

Remember when I went on that road trip from Atlanta to NYC with my friend Rob and I was all “OMG it’s going to be amazing,” and you guys were secretly thinking, “OMG that dude is going to kick her out of the car before they hit North Carolina”? Yeah, that one. Well thankfully I […]

watermelon drink

It’s Labor Day weekend but it feels like St. Patrick’s Day was yesterday (WTF). It’s time to squeeze in all the things you planned on doing this summer but didn’t get around to like traveling the world and getting six-pack abs. What? Or just (attempt to) get a tan and eat seasonal foods. Which brings me to […]

iphone6angle

I’m not one to get all wound out about the latest technology (I would never wait hours in line for an electronic, that’s for sure), but the iPhone 6 has given me a bit of a lady boner. First, let’s take a look at the evolution of the iPhone with this fancy infographic from uSell: […]

couple_in_bed_laughing__medium_4x3

You know the feeling: You wake up and want to simultaneously do cartwheels, call your BFFs, and Gorilla Glue yourself to the warm body next to you so you’ll never EVER have be apart. But chances are you’ll nix the acrobatics, settle for a quick Emoji update on the group text (eggplant + heart + smiling […]

pinterest nails

I treat my nails like my wine preference: Dark in the winter, light in the summer. Sure, you can rock any nail color any time of year if you do it with confidence, but once chilly weather hits, I reach for those charcoals, hunter greens, blacks, and burgundies. Cajun Shrimp, you can hibernate until (at […]

anaconda video

I watched Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video (after 50 million people had already viewed it, and 30 of those 50 million probably climaxed) and I was, in a word, repulsed. Asses clapping, asses twerking, asses in the air doggystyle position, asses shaking in slow-mo, girls touching each other’s asses, girls grinding on each other’s asses, girls […]

jimmy fallon ice bucket challenge 2

Oh, the #IceBucketChallenge. Unless you live on an island with no technology or communication with the outside world, you are very familiar with this recent phenomenon taking over the Internet. (Also, can I come stay with you?) I just had to say my piece on this whole thing. And one last thing–there’s a lot of metal […]

how-taylor-swift-conquered-the-music-world-by-age-22

Taylor Swift and her try-hard demeanor, ridiculous humblebragging, and painfully awkward dance moves in the front row of awards shows make me feel crazy. Between her, Anne Hathaway and Kanye, I don’t know who makes my skin crawl more. But then….this happened. My favorite sketch of all time and she was funny (who knew!?), endearing […]

road trip 2

I’m currently writing this from a 2013 Porsche Cayenne fully equipped with air-conditioned 14-way adjustable seats, 4 phones, an iPad, 2 laptops (with working charger), 2 Internet connections (just in case one isn’t fast enough), refrigerator, espresso maker (WHAT?), and 2 bikes on the back. Welcome to #RoadTrippingWithRob. (If we were in my 2003 Xterra, […]

tuna melts my heart

If there’s one thing we can agree on when it comes to Instagram, it’s this: And if there’s another thing we can agree on, it’s that animals are the best. Animals don’t wake up in the morning, put on a full face of makeup, then take a selfie and hashtag #IWokeUpLikeThis. Animals don’t pretend to […]

vintage-painted-nails

Here’s the deal with mani/pedis and me: I’ll go the salon with a friend so we can catch up, talk about boys, and drink wine (complimentary at Passion) then go drink more wine (across the street at Barcelona). Have I been boozing at the Barcelona bar for hours whilst wearing those disposable flip-flops? Maybe. Numerous times. […]

hungover-working cameron diaz

Every summer, I go to Dewey Beach (the happiest place on Earth) for a week, and by Day 5, I am a zombie version of myself from all the partying. I somehow make it through the week, but then I need another full week to recover and a full month to get my body back […]

rihanna cfda awards dress

Oh, nipples. Babies want to suck them, men want to touch them, (some) women want to free them, and Rihanna just wants to show hers and break the Internet on the reg. I have no desire to go topless in public, but I do want this bikini for the beach, pool, or Tuesday mornings over […]
