Currently Crushing On: Kiernan Shipka

By | February 5th, 2016|green with envy, pop culture|

In the world of Instagram, everyone is obsessed with labeling celebrities as their "goals" - #RelationshipGoals, #HairGoals, #BodyGoals, etc. I follow plenty of jealousy-inducing celebs myself... I just never thought one of them would be a sixteen-year-old. Enter Kiernan Shipka. The Mad Men star is so freaking perfect that it baffles me. At that age, [...]

Bingeworthy: My Netflix Picks

By | December 29th, 2015|pop culture, to do list, uncolored reviews|

If you're anything like me, the onset of winter weather means one thing: hibernation. For those days and nights when you can't even fathom opening the door to get the mail, Netflix is your salvation. Forget the stinging of the midwinter wind on your cheeks - instead, go for the stinging of your eyes as your [...]

Through Iris Colored Glasses

“Color is so important. I mean, color can raise the dead.” -- Iris Apfel If you don’t know who Iris Apfel is, you are seriously missing out. I’ll admit that until recently, I wasn’t quite sure who she was. I recognized her from her signature round, oversized glasses and white hair. I knew she had [...]

The LC Runway Collection

It's no secret that I adore Lauren Conrad. In fact, I wrote all about my love for her a month or two ago on this very blog. I entered (and won!) a contest on her site. And when my friend referred to LC as my "spirit animal" just the other day, I basically squealed. So it [...]

Teenage Dream

By | August 5th, 2015|#trending, Color Me Stylish, pop culture|

As with many of my peers, an embarrassingly large chunk of my adolescent life was spent watching, discussing, and idolizing the teens on MTV's Laguna Beach. I was so obsessed that I somehow suckered my parents into driving me to Laguna Beach while we were visiting my brother, Matt, at school in L.A. I traipsed around the [...]

But I’m a ’90’s Bitch

By | June 25th, 2015|broke girl's budget, pop culture, to do list|

As much as our parents try to convince us that the music from their generation trumps ours, I will defend the 1990's 'til the end. Although I was negative-one-year-old when the decade began, I consider myself a true '90s kid. We had the best bands, the best TV shows, and some of the best trends. [...]

Chasing Netflix

By | June 23rd, 2015|pop culture, to do list, uncolored reviews|

I'm always looking for the best binge-worthy shows to add to my list on Netflix. What better way to use my time than by melting my brain with four consecutive hours of screen time? I mean, those late night hours would just be spent sleeping, anyway. Who needs that? That brings me to a few weeks [...]
