The Equinox

  • 09.22.2014
The Equinox: Look to The Sky.  "In the fall, I believe again in poetry if nothing else it is a movement of the mind.*" The people of so many summers and autumns past spent much more time outside than we do. The sky had a different job then. It was both a clock and a calendar and people watched the sun travel

Featured: Journey Claimer Series

  • 09.20.2014
My dear friend Brandon aka Run Bimma is one of the most inspiring guys I know. Just ask the Boston Globe, he's someone to pay attention to. He was a powerhouse when he was in Louisiana and is taking the running, and social media world for that matter, by storm. I'm so excited to be featured in his new series: Journe

Fade to Blue

"Sophie Blue started wearing a black skirt and Midnight Noir lipstick on her last birthday. It was also the day her father disappeared. Or spontaneously combusted. Which is sort of bad timing, since a Popsicle truck with tinted windows has started circling the house. Kenny Fade is a basketball god. His sneakers co

The Masks

Wednesday. Not my favorite. I always feel that by Wednesday I'm buried, and I can't remember how it started or how I'll make my way out. Fairly typical for lots of people I think (I never felt that in Spain... clearly a cultural difference, but that's another narrative). Last night at happy hour with girlfriends Skye

Travel Diary: ¡CELEBRACIÓN!

  • 09.09.2014
One of the most fantastic experiences of my time in Spain happened in my final week there. The Feria de la Virgen de la Cruz, from my perspective, can only be likened to Mardi Gras. Daily parades, all night dancing in the streets, food and cocktails on every corner... a whole community coming together to celebrate.

A New Orleans Style Love Affair

  • 09.08.2014
I love New Orleans. I mean, like down deep with all my heart and everything else, L-O-V-E love. And I know, that's not really new news. If you've read my blog for awhile, you definitely know it. If you're new here, well now you know. My other love? Fashion, of course. Give me a mixed print, a platform heel and
