More Things To Do In The Steel City

After spending Thanksgiving in Pittsburgh, I have a few more travel tips for ya. (Just in case you didn’t get your fill from this one or this one.) Where to Stay: Hotel Monaco: This trendy spot is in a fun location downtown. It’s filled with whacky art, and if you’re there when the weather is…

Limerick: Ireland Sober Is Ireland Stiff

I honestly didn’t know what to expect of Limerick as we drove in, late one night. We got there just in time to catch a little live traditional music at Dolan’s Pub. That’s perhaps where we had the best fish and chips of our trip. The next morning we set off to explore King John’s Castle.…

The Vancouver Adventure Continues

Maybe you got to see my post from earlier this week, Discovering Vancouver. Those shots were taken with my Canon 5d.

zippy zippy zippy bra!

Check out this cool Nike sports bra I got the other day! It zips! I paired it with a sweater top from Target, Gianni Bini skirt, Sky High Dunks, and Google Eyes. It’s a great outfit for a stroll in Wicker Park or the Bastille concert I went to that night. (which was awesome, by…

you can call me Rebar Girl!

So I just got back from spending the weekend in Nashville. It’s a lovely place, but I’m not so sure I belong there. It’s the land of country music and cowboy boots. It seems that I should fit right in, being from Texas and all, but I can’t say that I do. Any place that has…

Little Red Riding Hoodie

I got this hoodie a while back while I was in Portland. It’s an interesting piece to have in your closet. The bold colors and length make a statement indeed. At first thought, it’s great for workouts or a walk to the gym. But I wanted to take it a step further and turn it…
