Snuggie in the Park

Ah! I’m finally having the realization that my mirror pictures just aren’t cutting it. AT ALL. Scroll down, and forget what I’m writing just to look at the pictures. NOW. See how pretty those shots are? Grrr. I may have to recruit my roommate to grab more shots of me outside. [Too bad I accidentally […]

Beginning This Weekend: NYC’s Brooklyn Flea Heads to One Hanson Place!

Because I Wear Heels No Matter the Temperature

Yesterday, in the usual Sammy-Rush of life, I was …. rushing. Why? In prep for next week’s Sassy & Sustainable fashion shoot with Darla, I’ve been working out like mad.
