Birkenstocks ~ An Orgasm For Your Feet

Since buying my first pair of Birkenstock sandals a month ago, my feet have been in ecstasy. I’d like to tell you that I bought them for the unbelievable comfort or the idyllic arch support. But that wouldn’t be the truth. I bought them because it seems that these good for your feet shoes are […]

My Oscar Speech

“Me? I won? Did they really call my name?” I stumble out of my seat, kiss my adoring husband, and after what seems like an eternity, I finally make it to the stage steps. “Don’t fall,” I tell myself repeatedly. Chances are if I did, I wouldn’t look as graceful as Jennifer Lawrence. And truth […]

Having grown up in the Midwest, it just never feels like the holiday season unless there’s snow – powdery, crunchy, stick to your eyelashes snow. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the snow, so […]

Burt’s Closet

It’s easy to see why Burt Mulford did a little modeling for Ralph Lauren back in the day. But even his lean physique and chiseled features don’t tell us everything about his impeccable sense of style. For that, you must spend a little time in his closet. Which, is exactly what my friend Kaisa and […]
