Simple Mediterranean Salad

My number one dream destination is Greece. The beautiful white buildings, gorgeous coastlines and fresh food make it a must on my list. But since I don’t have plans to visit any time soon, I can make do with bringing a little bit of Greece… Read more


Matchy Matchy

A few weeks ago, I attended the Twin Peaks World Premiere at the Vista Theater in Hollywood. Even though I was technically off-duty, whenever I attend work-related functions I think it’s important to keep it professional. I didn’t want to wear anything too risque (not… Read more


The Cheese Store of Silver Lake

There’s an old french saying, “A dinner which ends without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye.” I think Daryl Hannah in Kill Bill might disagree, but I understand the sentiment. Cheese makes everything better. So you can imagine how wonderful a… Read more


Treasured Tees

As much as I love getting dressed up for special occasions, having to stick to a strict dress code five days a week is an extra stress I’m glad I don’t have at my job. I tend to spend a lot of time on my feet,… Read more


Mushroom Stroganoff

I love comfort food and one of my favorite dishes is stroganoff. Warm noodles, savory mushrooms, flavorful shallots and white wine? What more can you ask for! It’s really pretty easy, though the first time I made the dish I got whiplash from the number… Read more


Perfectly Patterned

Shorts are notoriously troublesome for me. Trying to find the perfect length is one thing and trying to find the perfect style is another. With such little material to begin with, you’d think picking shorts would be pretty easy! But somehow I’m always struggling to find… Read more


The Best Bet for Brittle Hair

A few months ago, I did a big shampoo showdown in the hopes of finding the perfect shampoo. But after religiously using what I thought was my new-all-time favorite volumizing shampoo and conditioner, my hair feels extremely dry and brittle. But, I think there’s some… Read more


Green Zatar Roasted Vegetables

The biggest challenge I face as a vegetarian isn’t temptation or even getting enough protein, it’s just boredom. When you cut all meat and fish out of your diet, it takes a little bit of extra energy to keep meals interesting (but it’s totally worth… Read more


The Spice Station

Last weekend in Palm Springs we all took turns cooking. My old roommate Steve seriously impressed me with some amazing grilled vegetables that had been marinated in some kind of magical spices. When I asked him what he did to make it all taste so… Read more


Better Off Red

For a very long time, my favorite color was red. I loved it so much that I painted a big accent wall in my bedroom entirely red – but that was the beginning of the end. I think looking at red every day for two years started… Read more


My New Summer Staple!

High-waisted pants and shorts have never been my thing. I always thought they’d make me look bigger and feel too 70′s. But this minimal tropical print keeps things modern while the stretchy striped elastic waistband keeps things tucked and trim. I’m now a high-waisted convert!… Read more


Red, White & Blue

I love the Fourth of July for the fireworks, food and fun with friends. But as much as I love celebrating the holiday, I don’t own anything that screams “USA” – not even a tee with an American flag on it. But that’s okay, I like playing… Read more
