Road Tripping to the Desert Even though the festival was only 3 days, I packed my top 10 outfits and my friend and I headed off on our mini road trip toRead More →

Since I find myself in my car quite often, I’ve taken a serious liking to podcasts.

The Deuce

I had been waiting for The Deuce to premiere for what seemed like eternity. Having a love for New York City and being obsessed with the 1970s, as soon as I saw the trailer this past winter, I couldn’t wait. But first, let’s take a look at how New York City looked back then… Times Square in The 1970’s Image via Image via Recreating The Disco Era The Deuce is written by David Simon (The Wire, The Corner), so you know it’s going to be gritty and intense.

A kickass playlist and summer go hand and hand. You can’t have one without the other. When I create a summer playlist I add songs that help me visualize myself at the beach with a drink in my hand and the sun beaming down on me, or just having a good time with friends by the pool. For that I go to music by Disclosure, Flamingosis, Autograf, De Lux, Alex Guesta, Beach House, Twin Shadow, Lany, Neon Indian, Tensnake, Solidisco, Foster The People, Tame Impala, Beach Fossils, VHS Collection, Duke Dumont, Youth Group, Empire Of The Sun and Best Coast. Then I bring back some of my favorite throwbacks likeRead More →

Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann was the first of its kind, filled with tales of friendship, sex, drugs, and adultery,Read More →
