The Backpack Brigade

Backpacks have had a major presence far beyond the classroom in the last few runway seasons.

Every social media outlet has been plastered with pictures from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Recap: The Golden Globes

WordPress is overflowing with Golden Globe recaps so I figured I’d add to the mix. The Golden Globes is my favorite awards ceremony to watch. I love television just as much as I love movies and the Golden Globes packs it all into one show. The dresses are fantastic, the categories great and nothing beats […]
