Rockin' Your Inner Miss Fit

All throughout cinematic history, you see one example after another of protagonists, upon realizing that they don’t seem to quite fit the mold of everyone else around them, try desperately, and most of the time unsuccessfully, to fit in. To belong. To be one of the crowd instead of the outcast; one of the pack instead of blazing their own track; one of the many instead of one of the few. Of course, by the » Read More

What Would Audrey Do?

There’s something about slipping on a little black dress that changes a woman. The way she carries herself. The way she smiles. The way she becomes a little classier and a little sassier just by sliding it on. It’s not something you can explain, teach, bottle, or learn. It’s a phenomenon experienced by single women, married women, young women, old women, and women of all shapes, sizes and races – The Power of the Little » Read More

Seasons change…and so do people.

There is always a certain melancholy that comes with the changing of seasons. When lazy summer nights turn into brisk fall evenings…when the hot sun is replaced by a cool breeze…when the never-ending summer suddenly reveals it does, in fact, have an expiration date…and when the season that changed your life in so many ways falls away with the leaves on the trees and becomes just another memory to keep you warm on a cold » Read More

This one's for the (single) girls

I’m always surprised (and sometimes a little horrified) at some of the comments I get on my Twitter page, mostly from men, mostly asking me: “If you know so much, why are you still single?” It doesn’t always come in the form of a question. Sometimes it comes more in the form of an accusatory comment: “THAT’S why you’re still single!” or, “You must be (insert derogatory insult here) – and THAT’S why you don’t » Read More

Would you…could you…go Back to the Future?

Do you ever wonder…if you were to change one little tiny detail about your day…how your life might be different? Show up a few minutes early instead of a few minutes late. Take a different route. Shop at a store you’ve never shopped at. Call someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time. Say hello to someone you don’t know. How would all of these things change the life you are leading now?

Eat Pray Love: Well worth the journey

As little girls growing up playing with dolls and Easy-Bake Ovens and pushing our fake grocery carts around and carrying our fake purses, it’s pretty much drilled into our heads from Day 1 that the pentacle of a woman’s life is marriage, and kids, and carpools, and a white picket fence. We marry off our Barbies to our Kens at 5, marry off ourselves to our first boyfriends on the playground at age 10, and » Read More

Finding The End where it all began

Once upon a time, in a land called Music City, there lived a fair maiden who fell hard for a boy. For four years she loved this boy from afar, as the two engaged in a very on-again, off-again, Carrie Bradshaw/Mr. Big, never-quite-black yet never-quite-white relationship. The girl could never work up the nerve to tell the boy she loved him, and then one day it was too late. He disappeared without warning. And he » Read More

Lessons learned along the Yellow Brick Road

You usually never know life’s unforgettable moments are, in fact, unforgettable, until the moment has passed. The night you simply went with your friends to the same place you’d been going for years to grab dinner; except this time, you met someone that would literally change the course of your life. The day you told the boy you had been in love with for four years that you had been in love with him for » Read More
