Is It Worth It? Bobbi Brown and Shu Uemura

This is my internal crisis as a beauty blogger — Rome is burning. The economy is in the veritable toilet. A gas shortage is crippling parts of the South. Banks are eating each other, and thanks to global warming, so are polar bears. What is this world coming to? And here I am, going to […]

Vote. NOW.

Just about six weeks left to election day, and it’s getting scary. Among a scattered few of my peers, I am almost sensing some Obama backlash. This is mostly anecdotal, friend of friend stuff, but I’ll hear something like, my friend’s biracial but he’s not voting for Obama because everyone expects him to. (really?) A […]

Happy Anniversary, Mama and Papa Bella

Who’s Watching True Blood?

I’ve become less and less of a TV junkie. My comedic TV must-sees, The Office and 30 Rock, and Curb Your Enthusiasm are currently off the air, and my dramatic HBO addictions, The Sopranos and The Wire have gone for good. I wasn’t looking for a new show, but one found me. I gotta tell […]
