60 British Babes Walk Into A Room…

The Blogcademy: London

London, you delight us every time. You are always the most eccentric, the most enthusiastic, and you make us laugh until we cry. We know you’ll turn it out. And of course, you did.

We’re always staggered by the amount of wonderful women we meet at The Blogcademy: it seems like they all come crawling out of the woodwork to descend upon class. What a blessing! What a babefest!

I mean, just look at these lovelies!

…And we had very colourful class photos.

Carousel: Kissin’ September Goodbye!

09.27.2013 · carousel

Photo of Natalie Bloom’s workspace, via The Design Files. The days keep ticking by. There are only 97 days left in the year, a fact which has me slightly reeling, but also has me feeling reinvigorated with purpose and clarity. I’ve been asking myself how I can make these 97 days count the most, and […]


New York Doll: Whirlybird

09.24.2013 · new york city

Breakfast tacos are a wonderful way of life< in California and Texas, and it's a time-honoured tradition I happily embrace when I'm on the other side of the country. But as an East Coast babe, I had resigned myself to only indulging in the deliciousness of a Mexican breakfast when I was far from home. […]

50 Things To Do Before Summer Ends…

Photo by Made U Look. When I came back from London last week, the temperature in NYC had cooled off considerably.

Whether you’re looking forward to layering up and embracing the fall or not, make the most of […]


Oh, Mykonos! (A Home Movie)

09.13.2013 · travel

Leaving Santorini was heartbreaking, but we were ready for a change of pace. We found it in Mykonos. An island full of jetsetting party girls, tanned twenty-somethings and drunken antics laid in wait… Or so we thought. We considered going to all night beach parties, but decided that lying beside the pool in our sublime […]


OMG… I’m 30!

· gala

Photos by the always wonderful David McNeil. I almost can’t believe it. This morning, I woke up, and I was 30 years old. Thirty! How did this happen?! It’s true that time flies when you’re having fun… And my life, from age 23, has been a complete blast. If you had told me, as a […]


Easy, Breezy, Santorini! (A Home Movie)

09.06.2013 · travel

I think it’s fair to say that the three of us — Shauna, Kat and myself — had the time of our lives in Santorini. It is, without question, the most beautiful place I have ever clapped eyes on, and a few days relaxing were just what the doctor ordered. Even before we landed, I […]
