You guys, it’s been so long since I’ve written anything other than a recap on the blog that I almost feel the need to reintroduce myself. But I can’t think of anything to say. Seriously, writer’s block has hit me hard the past six—eight?—weeks. And by writer’s block I mean disinterest, distraction, and disillusionment. Throw […]

It’s that time of year again. The time when your social media feeds are chock-full of subliminal (yet passive-aggressive) messages that are supposed to make you motivated to get your act together and turn the New Year into a New You but really just make you feel like shit about your current self. I hate resolutions. And […]

You know how over the past six months or so I’ve started every FF post with an apology for being lazy skipping a few weeks? Not today, my friends. Sure, I didn’t post last week, but instead of an apology I’m going to say this: You are welcome.Because after you get through this list I’m […]

Good grief. I think I need to apologize—again—to those of you who look forward to the Friday Favorites and have been left without purpose for the past month and forced to spend the entirety of your weekends moping around cursing me for my deliquency and your despondency. Sorry, mom. But seriously, you guys. Way back in oh-twelve when […]

Before you read this little story, let me set the record straight: I am not losing my mind. Remember that, because after you read this little story, you’ll think I am. About five years ago I bought a fantastic pair of boots. Seriously, I loved everything about these boots. The magical color (not black, not […]

Good news! After an inexcusably long absense from the Friday Favorites, they’re baaack. Just ignore the calendar. I’m posting on Saturday because 1.) I wanted to ease you back into them and worried that if I posted on Friday you’d stroke out from shock 2.) I had already published a post about how I act age-inappropriately yesterday […]

I’ve always envied people who have personal trainers. Not because of the actual personal trainer. I mean, who wants to have someone around whose sole purpose is to make you exercise on a regular basis, not to mention knowing when you cheated or lied about it? *shudder* No, I’ve envied them because they’re usually fantastically fit, […]

14 years ago at this time I was trying desperately to get another hour of sleep. My 4 month old had had a fussy night, and my husband had woken me up at 4:30 a.m. to say a quick goodbye. He was going to NYC for a business meeting, had to catch a 6 a.m. […]

Yeah, I agree. The title to this post sounds frighteningly like a martini-induced dream I had once, but stay with me here. I swear I haven’t had anything alcoholic in like four whole days. Thank you, James. I’ve gotta tell you, this week the Favorites were tough to pull out (as you’re about to discover), but […]

Indulgences. Summer is the perfect time for them, isn’t it? (So are the holidays…and the bitter cold months of January…and February…and March…and the brisk, apple-crispy days of fall…but let’s not get carried away. Until October.) It seems that all I’ve been doing the past month or so is indulging, and not just on decadent food […]
