Somewhere along the lineage of American history, white girls people thought it would be a good idea to celebrate their birthdays in restaurants with literally everyone they knew in order to feel popular and validated and make innocent servers want to blow their brains out. And listen, I’ve been guilty of this — I remember […]

What would life be without coffee? I LITERALLY CAN’T EVEN imagine. (If you’re not a coffee drinker, feel free to skip over this article but PS, HOW THE FUCK DO YOU FUNCTION ON A DAILY BASIS?) I’m always looking for ways to spice up my coffee routine at home so I don’t spend $238742974 a […]

First of all, we shouldn’t be getting sunburn. It’s not cute and it increases your risk of skin cancer by like, a million. But sometimes it happens (even to me, as judgey as I am about it). If you’re out in the sun, I say always wear SPF 30 or higher (YOU CAN STILL TAN […]

Confession: When I got my eyelash extensions removed after a year and a half, I rushed to my waxing studio to have brow whisperer Raquel work her magic so my eye area wouldn’t feel quite so unpretty (RIP Left Eye). But it was while she shaped and shaded that she told me to use castor oil for […]

#NewYear……#NewYou. How about we put aside your unrealistic resolutions of quadrupling your income, getting Gisele’s body or Ryan Gosling’s face, and finding love on FarmersOnly.com and talk about what really matters: Your social media accounts. Our old pal Trey and I have long discussed how social media is completely out of control (yet we spend […]

SPOILER ALERT: The most amazing concealer ever is called……..Amazing Concealer. Just let that sink in. Here was my convo at Sephora a month ago in NYC: Me to the uber-groomed gay man with that “I know my shit” look about him: “I’m searching for a new concealer; any suggestions?” Him: “Ohmygod yes girl, we have the […]

There is nothing wrong with being bleach blonde in the dead of winter (especially if you live somewhere warm all year round…bitch). But lots of ladies who lighten their locks in the summer want to go a tad darker when football season (A.K.A. fall) starts rolling in. I recently saw my hair whisperer Mandy Gispert […]

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 […]

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, […]

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. […]

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 […]

When I was a kid, I was never without a book on my person (#NerdAlert: I would ask how long a car ride was just in case I might finish one book and need another). These days, I don’t get to read (for pleasure) as much as I’d like, but lately, I’ve been making more […]

I just turned #Forever31, and I look back on the past year as the best yet–growth, change, struggle, triumph, love, loss, travel, and lots of vodka (per usual). I decided to compile some things I learned this year (or kinda’ already knew, but really had experiences with). There are definitely more (for example, how to zoom […]

In April, Nair flew me to NYC to shoot a series of “summer style and beauty video vignettes” and I wasn’t exactly sure what it entailed, but a few days before the shoot I received this in an email: “Are you comfortable in a swimsuit on camera?” I’m sorry, what? Did you say swimsuit? On […]

If you’re a regular W+P reader, first of all: I love you. Second of all, you probably know I’m on a constant mission to bring my hair to its maximum potential. And I thought I had all the tools and tricks…until I received my Harry Josh pro dryer. Now, this is a $300 piece of […]

Bananas are the Ryan Gosling of fruit. For the past six months, I’ve been eating a banana every day (sometimes TWO) and it has been a life changer. Check out the reasons why nature’s yellow boomerang is truly the most glorious of all. 1. Beats bloat. If you’re swollen from a salty meal (read: 829374928374 […]

Dear dry shampoo, How do you know me so well? How do you know that it will be Thursday night and I’m planning to work out, shower quickly at the gym sans hair washing, then grab a quick, casual bite with girlfriends and go home, but then I’ll have a couple glasses of wine at […]

Hey girls. If you think spending four hours on your hair, makeup, and picking out a slutty sexy outfit, then standing in a bar/club with resting bitch face and sipping a fancy martini is going to attract Prince Charming, you’re doing it wrong. (For the record, you may attract Prince Douchebag. He is definitely not […]

When the sock bun came out and some of my friends were galavanting around town with these big, perfect updos, I had a tantrum. Not only was I not coordinated/talented enough to master the technique, my hair wasn’t thick enough to make it work. Every sock bun post on Pinterest was like, “See? It’s easy!” and […]

Who loves DUIs!? If you just said, “I do!”, then how are you reading this from jail? Anyway, Atlanta now has another awesome, easy way to get around safely with Hailo, an app that brings a cab to you with two taps of your smartphone. Like other transportation apps you may know or use, your […]

Hello, music friends. This old man attended the famous Coachella Music Festival last weekend and would like to report back to you about my magical experience. Overall, meh. Sure there are 17,000 bands and DJs splattered over a bushel of stages consuming the Empire Polo Grounds, but it’s not all horses and roses. Aside from […]

Yesterday, a driver who looked like a retired mob boss (name: “Bill Brown”) picked me up in a black car and drove me to Kim Zolciak’s house to drink and have breakfast for dinner with her and a handful of other media folks. Is this real life? The most famed Bravo hair housewife (in my […]

Plenty of celebs eat healthy and brag talk about it, but if the average person ate the way Gwyneth Paltrow does, he/she should would be broke and hangry. Which is why I absolutely love this article I just stumbled upon (originally published in October), “7 Ways to Eat Good on a Hood Budget” by Stic […]
