Why American Women Fall For British Dudes

The Most Important Article I Have Ever Written

That’s right, I took it upon myself to explore why American women so often love English men, and yet it’s rare to find an American man paired with an English woman (George Clooney’s recent engagement doesn’t count – because George Clooney is the exception to every rule!). ELLE magazine recognized how important this article wasRead On >>

Cheese and tomato buttery biscuits

A perfect summer snack

I’m a still-wandering twenty something, and it’s a good week if I manage to plan a full 7 days’ worth of menus and meals. It’s during these organized weeks that I begin to feel like a capable adult.

Guys! Last month, I interviewed LILY ALLEN for a cover story for a magazine! I’ve loved her music since she appeared on the music scene in 2006, so it was quite surreal to have tea with her inside Claridge’s Hotel in London. Lily Observations: # 1 – she looks so familiar, so it felt totallyRead On >>

Simple Spring Salad with Halloumi
