Charting the style of daily life...with the mouth of a sailor.


The Five | Under Deadline

This week, I had two different items to turn in to the glossy mag I write for - my column and a feature story (I love a double whammy). Thus, I just haven't had time to publish any of the amazing, life affirming blog posts swirling in my head (or shower). However, I did have time to do a little lazy blogging (ie, this post).

* The feature story I turned in for the April edition of Fort Wayne Monthly celebrates the incredible clothing companies based in my hometown. I super proud of my profile of these creative, driven people and the brands they run. The online edition will publish closer to the end of the month. #justbecomeasubsriberalready

* One of the brands I wrote about in the article mentioned above is a clothing company for boys called The Good Ones. I'm so in love with this brand and so are my boys. TGO just released the 1st edition of their newest collection last week. #swoon

* I feel like it's old news by now but the video of Britt McHenry was interesting to watch - and infuriating. But in a strange way, the video made me feel good because it pointed out to me that I don't personally know anyone that would speak to someone that way. Britt McHenry made me happy I don't have friends like her. #beingrudeisugly

* The return of SJP to HBO is SOFA KING exciting!!!!! #cannotwait

* I finally got to have a Caipirinha, the national drink of Brazil, and I loved it (I drank three). I just still don't know how to pronounce it. #mynewsummercocktail



The Five | Reboot

I used to do a little series where I'd wrap up my five (lifelong love for the number five) favorite things of the week. At some point, I stopped doing that --- I'm not sure why. It's back, b!tches.

* Barely Famous just debuted on VH1 and it's hilarious. The Foster sisters (daughters of composer/songwriter David Foster) are super cute, stylish and funny --- what more could you ask for? I don't have cable but I bought the season pass through iTunes for under $20. Score! #cheapthrills

* I'm hashtag obsessed with one of Madonna's new songs, Ghosttown. She will always be a badass, no matter what anyone says. #datass

* Open For Service is such a fab initiative, freshly started by a couple of forward thinking peeps in Indianapolis. This needs to be a worldwide movement so click here, read and share with everyone  you know --- providing  you agree with the mission. If you don't agree, I'm not sure we can be friends.... #justsaying

* These teacups are totally my vibe. Follow @trovestore on Instagram for tons of super cute merch. #cheeky

* I've always liked fennel but right now I just can't get enough. I think I'm just craving fresh, crisp salads now that the weather is not as frightful. Here's how I've been getting funky with fennel: Make a bed of baby kale, dressed with olive oil, salt and pepper and lemon juice. Add fresh mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, segments of grapefruit, Meyer lemon and blood orange then top with shaved fennel. #nocookdinner


Cheers to the weekend!
