New York City has given me enough memories to last a lifetime, but it’s always gutwrenching to say goodbye. While I’ve bid adieu to the city many times over, it was always knowing that I could come back to a mailing address here. Sure, I’ve got a one-way flight booked at

Surfing USA

Like my boy Bueller once said: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and blog about it for a while, you could forget the details.” I may have remixed that quote a tad, but ain’t it pretty close to the truth? It’s been a looong time since I’ve consistently written on

Live Laugh Love

Being a female can be outright intense. We feel with our whole heart, we overthink the simplest of details and we analyze ’til our eyes close. And the next day…we start again. So when a songstress perfectly conveys what we’re feeling in song… it’s downright enlightening and we realize we’re

Watch Me Rise

Hello Kitty Con 2014

The first ever Hello Kitty Con happened this weekend. I was there.  I couldn’t NOT be. It was what every Hello Kitty enthusiast’s dreams are made of. Kid-size imagination in life-size reality. And I was there.  I couldn’t NOT be. Happy 40th birthday Hello Kitty… and happy 40th to me.

A girl and her Z4 M

This is a story about a girl and her car… Just kidding that would take way too long. Short and simple, Sydney’s car is pretty clean. I ran into her on 580 (not literally) one morning and she was on her way to the shop to get her car put on

Cloud 19

Since dropping end-August, that new mixtape Cloud 19 by Oakland’s own Kehlani, been stuck on repeat. And if you like that vibe reminiscent of them good ol’ days of 90’s queens of hip hop soul – that blunted, cruise-good, “I deserve better” music – then this is a must. You too…will
