Breakfast At Tiffany’s

Since reading “Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast At Tiffany’s and the Dawn of the Modern Woman”, I have been searching the net more and more for images from the film, “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” (1961).

My First Haircut

I know what you’re thinking–first haircut? Well technically this is my first haircut since going through my breast cancer journey.

Les Intentions

Happy Thursday! Today is the first day that the holidays really seem O-V-E-R. Today also feels like a Monday but thankfully it’s not… I’m actually quite grateful that the first day back from holiday break fell on a day so late in the week.  F.

Pate Au Ginseng-Concentrated Black Mask

Happy New Year! While I don’t usually have resolutions, I’ve made more of a conscious effort to focus more on self-care–mani/ pedi’s and doing face masks more than just once every three months! I had a sample of Erborian’s Pate Au Ginseng Concentrated Face Mask  and loved it so much that I bought a bigger …
