Sur les Pointes

July 27, 2016

Twelve weeks ago I was madly searching for the perfect pair of espadrilles to celebrate the start of summer, and now it seems absurd that in four and a half more weeks school will be back in session. Where has the time gone? My plan was to have my research proposal finished, all of MFB’s* bachelorette supplies ordered, and have lost 5 lbs to more comfortably fit into my bridesmaid dress.

“Men fall in love with their eyes. And women fall in love between their ears.” Very few people understand the difficulty of deciding on the appropriate outfit for an academic conference. Guys can get away with a dress shirt and slacks, but girls can actually…

Last Thursday, a spontaneous pizza dinner out turned into an even more spontaneous beer-tasting party at my apartment. I always had an affinity for beer, particularly stouts, but unfortunately the craft-beer scene in Storrs, CT is nothing compared to what it is in Philadelphia. Nonetheless,…

A New York Minute

I don’t think there’s anything that can replace a classic analog watch as the perfect accessory, no matter how much technology advances. Watches make excellent graduation or anniversary gifts and have the added bonus of being able to be easily engraved; I myself gave…

Happy New Year!

Wedding Prep

Between trips to Puerto Rico and South Carolina, I liberally applied sunblock all summer to avoid any awkward tan lines for when I’d have to wear a strapless bridesmaid dress for A’s wedding. As it turned out, I applied sunblock so well that by the…

Do you use natural deodorant? I’ve been using Tom’s of Maine for the past few years, but after reading this, I was eager to try this deodorant from Sephora. After a day spent in lab and a brief trip to the gym, I smelled as fresh…

Joy in Joie

When it comes to wedding fashion, guys have it so easy. The hardest decision they have to make is which suit do they want to wear, and which shirt and tie do they want to pair with it. At the opposite end of the…

Borrowing from Luke Danes’ Closet

Do you remember the movie Pleasantville? Toby McGuire and Reese Witherspoon get thrown into a black and white TV show, only to throw everything topsy-turvy and cause people to start appearing in Technicolor. Their totally crazy adventure was the result of an odd encounter…
