I don't wanna wait for our lives to be over
At times I feel like my life is a primetime TV sitcom from the 90’s. Then I realize that the drama and craziness that goes on from a day-to-day basis could never compare to the overwhelming teen angst of a long running TV show. Enter Dawson’s Creek, the greatest teen angst TV show of ALL TIME. When the first season aired in 1998 people were all in a huff over its “over sexualized depiction of...
Atlantic City: woof
I’m all about adventures and experiencing things that are usually out of my element. You can never have an opinion about something unless you’ve tried it, so ladies and gentlemen, last night I went clubbing in Atlantic City, NJ. I would like to add as a side note that the last club I went to was Marquee at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, in which I stood in a 3 hour guest list line to see Kaskade....
I'm a Chef! Series: Horchata Rice Pudding
“In December (August) drinking (eating) horchata, I’d look psychotic in a balaclava.” - a little Vampy Weekend for you there. So I’ve spent my summer testing out some new recipes, with a strong focus in the dessert department. This week I’ve decided to try out a much anticipated rice pudding recipe, with a few variations. Trust me, people, searching for the perfect...

“Dreams, provided by Justin Vernon “or “Justin Vernon presents: Imagination. Ever heard of it?!” Holocene
In keeping with discussions of fashion’s most fabulous, I would like to bring up Nicola Formichetti. Innovative Crazy Pants is what I hope most of his close friends like to call him. It just so happens that one of those close friends is Queen betch, Lady Gaga. If there’s one person that knows about crazy pants, it’s her. Besides acting as the Gag’s personal stylist and fashion director at the Haus...

The Superest of Super Videos: Our Deal
So per my previous posts it’s quite obvious that I not only love Best Coast, but that I can totally relate to EVERYTHING about their music. So of course when the buzz started up that Best Coast was going to be next up on MTV’s queue for their Super Video series, I peed myself a little. I’m not kidding either - I was sitting on my living room floor and my dog totally caught me. Even she was...
Let’s talk about angst. More importantly, let’s talk about angst in reference to one of my favorite bands: Best Coast. Bethany Cosentino (lead singer, California cutie, and all around bad ass chick) is probably the angstiest gal out there besides me, only she had the balls and musical cred to record an entire 13 track album about it. Anyway, I’m pretty sure this betch inhabited my body for the...
Amen, Hedi Slimane
Hedi Slimane is the tits. For those of you not familiar with this genius mastermind, Hedi first made waves (not to be confused with Wavves) in the fashion world in the mid ‘90’s as the creative director at YSL, before moving on to shut down exclusive line offers from both Gucci and Prada (later, betches) to become the creative director at Dior. Good move on his part, because that shit...
Bonjour, mes amis
Ahh mon cherie, my very first post! I must say I’m light years behind on the blog-a-log fad, but finally, here I am. So listen up, Smalls. It’s cool that I call you Smalls, right? What’s that? Nevermind, I can’t hear you through all that mumbling. Anyway, after spending what will be almost 4 straight months at home in bodacious Bucks County, PA, I’m finally gearing up to settle back in Boston, my...
