Does Your Identity Depend on Your City?

Does Your Identity Depend on Your City?

    I was reflecting a bit on the book Million Dollar View which I posted about on the blog yesterday. I may be off-base about this, but I got the feeling that one of the lead characters so deeply identified with the bohemian aspects of her city of choice (and, as it happens, birth) that she had a very […]

The Comeback

The Comeback

Much to the surprise of everyone around me, though probably even more of a surprise to myself, right after writing Stalling Tactics, I went back to dance class.

My Evening Out with Flora Nuit

My Evening Out with Flora Nuit

 Every once in a while this blogging life results in a discovery. On June 28th, I discovered Flora Nuit at their pop-up shop launch in Los Angeles, and now my brain is thinking luxury lingerie more than it ever has in the past. I know it’s a little strange because you probably think of me as a t-shirt and sweatpants […]

This Week on Dating in LA

This week has been a week on the go. If you’re just checking in, this is what I’ve been writing: What Inspires You? Do you see something, or do something, that acts as a consistent source of inspiration? Words to Live By I found a banner out in the world that made me laugh (and I agree)! Poor Life Choices: […]

Review: 30 Days of New

The view in the marina

My “30 Days of New” challenge ended last week. How time flies! Most of my discoveries were small things: new restaurants, new products, new tools (Instagram!), and new shows. I did not discover a magical mystery tour. I did not find buried treasure during my first hike on a desolate beach (that one really bummed me out because I was […]
