About Author

The one piece in my closet I absolutely can't live without is...
James Jeans Couture Skinny Matte Black Jeans, the only black jeans I've ever owned that are and stay black and don't just THINK they're black, like Can't Hardly Wait's Special K.

Current obsession...
Couch 2 5 K! I didn't think anything could motivate me to run, but that app + a playlist that begins and ends with Britney Spears tunes seems to be doing the trick.

My must-have cheap thrill...
Olay Ultra Moisture With Shea Butter Body Wash. I'm embarrassingly lazy about lotioning up post-shower and this FULLY alleviates any need for cream and makes my formerly flaky uneven skin positively gleamy and nearly waterlogged with moisture in a Thandie Newton circa ER kind of way I've never before been able to achieve.

Current food obsession...
I recently underwent the Be Well by Dr. Frank Lipman cleanse and am never going to consume dairy or gluten again. I've become Rain Man levels of obsessed with Silk Coconut Milk with my coffee. It tastes vaguely tropical and is so creamy, I don't miss my half and half at all.

The one song I can listen to over and over...and over is...
"Freedom '90" by George Michael. Maybe it's due to years of oppressive corporate regimes. Maybe it's because it recalls the Thierry Mugler-donning supermodels of the early '90s in their glamorous heyday. Maybe it's just that I REALLY appreciate a good George Michael ditty.

Next up on my Netflix is...
House of Cards, Jim Gaffigan standup I haven't yet seen, The Philadelphia Story (can you believe this Philly native hasn't seen it?), Magic City's second season (for the early '60s makeup and hair, obviously).


Are You Using The Wrong Deodorant

Oh, deo. It’s inspired '90s garage-band tunes and a vast variety of olfactory experiences. Who can forget Sex and the City's Aidan insisting on hoarding


Bright Blushes For The Win

Bright blush is the simplest way to transition your makeup look to a spring-and-summer-appropriate version of sultry in a flash. But, because it’s easy
