This is my interpretation of a great quote I read somewhere: A new pair of Nikes will not make you go to the gym. A Kitchen Aid stand mixer will not put healthier food of the table. A Kindle will not make you read more books. A bottle of Chanel nail polish will not get you that […]

Kill the Shopping Monster


Something I preach to my fellow fashionistas, shoe addicts and beauty fanatics is the power and the drawl of the “shopping monster”.  The shopping monster strikes for me the most when I’m bored or when I have to travel.  I want new things. It doesn’t matter what it is, I want to look for it, […]
