Down the Drain

“Don’t spend your money on something that’s going to go down the drain.” This wisdom was offered to me when I was debating between buying the Byredo Mojave Ghost body wash or body lotion. Both offer the same delicious scent (and I’m not one of those people who uses “delicious,” but it’s really the best […]

When You Can’t Find a Rabbit, Find a Rose

I’m a sucker for a story. I think stories matter. Words matter. Names matter. I have a fragrance named Grace from Philosophy and a lipstick named Grace from Charlotte Tilbury and a lipstick named Grace from Nars and a lipstick named Grace from Hourglass and a cat named Grace from New York City.

Likewise, I […]

Alt-Future

Growing up (and, in the interest of transparency, as an adult), I was always afraid of Back to the Future II. I loved the first one. I was an 80s kid, I thought the Calvin Klein name was super funny, I loved 50s fashion, and the fact that it had the Howard the Duck girl meant […]
