    “Responsible” is a word that gets thrown around much too much once you hit 30. … but, unlike an extra candle on your birthday cake, “responsibility” is hard to quantify.

    With Chanel’s infamous price hikes, Chanel ballet flats have become seriously expensive. Considering that in 2008, they cost $550 USD, it’s actually kind of nuts… actually, a 45% price increase for a pair of shoes is all the kinds of nuts. … but here’s something even nuttier, in 2008 I skipped my high school prom […]

    It’s 35°C outside today. Ridiculously hot. Thinking of the summer, I took a cue from when Alexa Chung went to Glastonbury a few (six) years ago.
