Faux Fur Alert

Happy New Year everyone! Now that it is the new year, it has gotten pretty cold, which means it’s time to hibernate. Just kidding, but for me, it’s a time to read more books, binge with more shows, and bundle up in my favorite winter teddy coats. I personally am really happy about it. It brings a sense of renewal to gear up for the year ahead. You will want to say warm once you venture outside and down below I have posted a faux fur alert for the long winter ahead. Maybe it’s because more fashion brands are jumping on the cruelty-free bandwagon. Entire cities are going fur free! Or just the fact that it’s so dang plush and cozy, but faux fur coats... Read More

How to Dress for a Holiday Party Based A Whim

  Getting dressed for holiday parties is fun. It has also been my most challenging annual sartorial journey. Because what I want to wear fluctuates wildly depending on what kind of persona I want to adopt on the evening in question. It also depends on the feeling I want to evoke. And the character I want to adopt. Do I want to be my slinkiest self, the kind of guest who sips bourbon cocktails in a corner while whispering sweet somethings into the ears of a few good friends and doesn’t feel the need to look at her phone once? Do I want to be a walking conversation starter by virtue of my outfit? How about a wildcard in the crowd, who only sings songs into... Read More

Alexa should we trust... Read More

36 Hours in New Orleans

Wow, New Orleans. You never cease to amaze me. You have always been the best “foodie” destination in the USA since ever. After have just spent 36 hours in New Orleans, we did not have a bad meal. The Big Easy never disappoints. The reason for my visit was to attend my Alma Mater, Tulane University for our reunion. It was so great to see all my friends after many years, and New Orleans will always hold a close place in my heart. of course, some of us changed, and so did the school. But some things stayed the same. The pastel pink streets, debaucherous groups of roaming travelers, jazz music flowing endlessly from every bar, and the kind of oppressive sticky heat that forces you to... Read More
