Well, folks, it’s been a while since I shared a slew of articles, so I guess I’ll just get down to it. New Year. Same me (and you!). Yay!
But, seriously, it’s either this or ramble on for hours about The Bachelor and, honestly, it’s too early in the season for that. Sean is the “Most Sincere Bachelor Ever.” He’s falling for a trick who he thinks has a good heart. She’s not there for the right reasons! Whatever will he do? (I mean, besides keep her until there are five girls left and then finally see her true colors.) Why don’t the Bachelors and Bachelorettes ever believe the other contestants when they try to forewarn, when they themselves have seen, during their respective past seasons, that the other contestants have unique incite and are probably telling the truth? But I digress.
Anywaaaaay … back to the articles. Because we’re highbrow. And we like to read.
1. In January’s Town & Country, I wrote a personal essay about the trials and tribulations of developing a big chest for their LOOKING GLASS section called: TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT. (The story may or may not still be available on newsstands, as the February issue has likely already dropped.) You may also want to check out the magazine’s new website, as it just launched in earnest and it looks fantastic.
BTW the personal essay includes snippets about growing up on the Upper West Side, which is partially what inspired parts of my still new novel, SEMI-CHARMED LIFE. Not to be pushy (ahem, ahem), but if you haven’t yet grabbed a copy, now is the time!
2. In this month’s ELLE (that’s the February issue), I offer a sneak peek into Once Upon a Time actress Ginnifer Goodwin’s lifestyle and Hollywood Hills home. (Hint: She loves tea!) It’s both a profile and a design piece, so check it out. It’s currently on newsstands.
3. For this past Sunday’s Los Angeles Times “Image” section, I wrote a story called Beckley Joins The Cool Kids about new shop Beckley opening on LA’s Third Street. (The area is a local favorite, cool strip of independent boutiques and restaurants near West Hollywood and also where I used to live.) The store’s owner Melissa Akkaway also launched her own clothing line last year, Beckley By Melissa, and those pieces are worth ogling online too. I believe there’s a sale happening as we speak? Also, look out for spring’s Beetle-Print Party Dress. It’s on my “MUST HAVE” list.
4. Lastly, it hasn’t come out yet, but this Sunday’s “Image” section will likely include another story by me about a new cool, artsy store opening, helmed by a fabulous and interesting chick. I can’t say more, but keep your eyes peeled!
