drink: Detox Smoothies

I cannot believe that tomorrow is the day I have been waiting to come for so long: Thanksgiving. I just washed my turkey pants aka a pair of old sweats that I wear each Thanksgiving in preparation for tomorrow’s big meal. Another way I am preparing for Thanksgiving is by prepping my body for the … Continue reading

wear: 2013 American Music Awards Red Carpet Style

The American Music Awards were on last night and unlike every other music award show that aired this year, I actually watched a large portion of it. Here are some of my favorite looks of the night: 1. I’m really enjoying the understated red carpet appearances that Katy Perry has been making lately. Her polka … Continue reading

watch: American Horror Story Coven

Since two of my favorite shows, “Dexter” and “Breaking Bad” ending a couple months ago, I have been scrabbling to find a dark, well-written show to take their places. My friends, the anthology series, “American Horror Story”, especially this season “Coven” has done just that. I watched the first season of the show and absolutely … Continue reading

eat: Sweet Corn Pudding

Contrary to the advertising departments of every major retailer, Thanksgiving is around the corner, not Christmas. Visions of pumpkin pie, not sugar plums have been dancing in my head and the visions have become more frequent and stronger as November 28th approaches. I already know that the traditional Thanksgiving side dishes like stuffing and mashed … Continue reading

wear: Naomie Harris’ Style

I’m a little bit behind on seeing the James Bond flick, “Skyfall”, but after one viewing, I have two new crushes: a renewed one on Daniel Craig and one in the latest Bond Girl, British actress Naomie Harris. Even before the film premiered stateside, she was grabbing the attention of fashion lovers everywhere with the … Continue reading

live: Fire Up My Fireplace

In the morning, it’s 50 degrees and at night, the temperature drops to 30. My friends, it is time to light a match (or turn a knob) and rev up the fireplace. When I was in college, my apartment had a fireplace and it was the envy of my friends. I didn’t dare use it … Continue reading

explore: Boone Hall Plantation

Without burning any bridges, I have to admit that I am not a fan of southern politics, but man, is it a gorgeous part of America. One place that has a tragic past that has been turned into a romanticized area in pop culture as of late is Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South … Continue reading

appreciate: Yayoi Kusama

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is a jack of all trades in the creative field. She works with a wide range of mediums, including paintings, collages, performance art, and sculptures to name a few. She had to have had an influence on artist like Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol because she was known for pop art … Continue reading

listen: Poliça

Songs: Violent Games, Wandering Star, Lay Your Cards Out I feel that for the past two weeks, I have been on a kick with indie bands fronted by women with strong vocals backed with haunting instrumentals. Based on my new discovery of electronic/ R&B group, Poliça, I don’t see that changing anytime soon. The relatively new … Continue reading

drink: Autumn Sangria with Hard Cider

My very first blog post for “Thoughts.Suggestions.Lifestyle” was about sangria. It is a drink that I will always associate with my college days, sitting outside on a terrace during one of the few days that it was warm in upstate New York. I always thought of it as a warm weather drink, but this ingenious … Continue reading

watch: Sleepy Hollow

I’ll be the first to admit it: I had no interest in watching “Sleepy Hollow when it first aired, but I heard through the grapevine that it was a good show and I decided to check it out for myself and I’m glad I did. This show is insanely good, emphasis on insane. It is … Continue reading

eat: Pumpkin Pie Dutch Baby Pancakes with Cinnamon Streusel

I have always wanted to make a Dutch baby pancake, I always saw pictures of this puffy pancake, which rises like a popover in the oven, which contributes to its light and airy texture and once out of the oven, it comes back down to size, the outer edges raised and crispy while the center … Continue reading

wear: Lupita Nyong’o Style

I think I just found my new fashion crush with “12 Years a Slave” actress Lupita Nyong’o. This insanely beautiful, poised, and well-spoken actress is in the midst of a press tour a film that is sure to pick up several award nominations and has been making quite a fashion statement. This woman knows her … Continue reading
