Would You....Do Last Messages?

Although I love my Samsung Galaxy 3, there have been plenty of times that the sucker has died on me during the day.
It's supposed to be a pic of a woman hating her dead phone, but I think this one is more of a "SALE on Net-a-Porter?!" expression.

I have been the person to hold up text and email threads because of a dead battery. And in some cases, hours can pass until I am able to revive my cell.  None of my contacts get concerned about my lack of responses. They just think I'm being an asshole.

But for those of you who have a "support system" with overactive imaginations stemming from paranoia (super crazy jealous boyfriend, anyone?), the "Last Message" app will let your contacts know that your phone died so they don't need to send you any panicked or angry messages.

Fold Over Boots

I'm a sucker for boots, and if you can wear a pair multiple ways, even better!  That's why I'm excited about the look of fold over boots for the fall. Well...MOST fold over boots. You'll see what I mean.


I've been seeing a lot of combat fold over boots, which allow you to go from tough to cute on a whim.

Would You....Do Blue?

I really started to get intrigued by blue hair ever since I met Jeannie Mai back in 2009 on a makeover segment of Today Show.  If you didn't remember the awesomeness, I went from a boxy 80s business suit to Spanx and camo (on the shoes).

Anyway, Jeannie Mai is a stylist and host. You may have seen her on Extra TV, How Do I Look?, Miss Universe, or E!  Not only is her personality and smile super warm, but she has this cool trademark blue hair!  She pulls it off so well that I actually considered doing it myself.  

Her blue seems to fluctuate between a more subtle dark midnight blue and a lighter, more noticeable blue.  Of course, lighting affects the color, too.  You can barely see the blue in the photo above.

Here is a photo where you see a tinge of blue streaks. I prefer the more subtle look.

Week in Pics (which week??)

I'm all sorts of lost on my week of pics, but let's just go cover last week and some of my CA trip. 

Last week started with a flight back to New York on Monday.  Usually, I'm totally ready to come back to the city.  But this time, I wanted to linger a bit longer in LA.  Ok, a lot longer.

It was just so nice to see close friends and enjoy the slower pace. You know what?  That's what it is.  It takes a little while to actually wind down, and having only four full days allowed us to start relaxing at day 3 and go right back home.  I love you, LA!

Flying into LAX around midnight, we huffed it over to the local luxurious La Quinta.  It actually wasn't bad at all. (Just avoid the La Quinta in the Portland Airport like the plague!)  Before heading out to Santa Barbara in the morning, I got a request to send off an audition tape within a couple of hours. I didn't have a suit so I wore my husband's suit jacket. I pretty much looked like this:

I didn't get the part.

'Tis the Season to Wear Tights

It's starting to get chilly! Time to get out those tights and hosiery. I used to hate them when I was little (probably because the crotch part was always drooping.) But now I like to wear them under shorts, dresses, and even jeans--when it's super cold. What are your favorite ways to wear them?

Am I Going To Be One of THOSE People?

I've been eating like a big, fat, stereotypical Southerner all of my life.  Ask anyone who has ever met me, and one of the first qualities mentioned will be my monstrous appetite.  My sister-in-law calls me a human garbage can. Not only do I enjoy Texas (though I'm from Georgia) size portions, but my top picks are usually the most sinful.

My newest obsession....and it's hot!

I've always loved jalapenos, but recently, I've been sticking them in/on everything!

These past few weeks, I've enjoyed those palate poppers in homemade salads, nachos, and my new breakfast of brown rice, sesame oil, soy sauce, avocado, and eggs.
