Last night, I watched the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on CBS. Naturally, I felt bad about myself sitting on the couch watching these beautiful ladies strut their stuff down the runway.

I love sales. That might be why I’m obsessed with Rue La La but on another note.

Last night, I took the red eye home to Boston from Los Angeles. I slept for maybe 5 minutes. It was miserable. I had an aisle seat which is not a good seat to have on red eye because you have nothing to rest your head against, and you need to get up if anyone […]

Last Friday, I left Boston for San Francisco to compete in the third and final Urbanathlon. I was able to run it as a relay instead of a solo, which consisted of myself, Cassey, and roomie. On Friday night, we went out to dinner in SF to Mamacita. OMG. It was so delicious. The tuna […]

I’m on my way to San Francisco for the third and final Urbanathlon! Here is a special guest post from Laura. Enjoy! The dining hall. Some consider it a necessary evil for survival, others consider it their culinary mecca, although it never goes entirely either way. The ‘d-hall’, as I refer to it, is a […]
