Books? or Shoes?

Who says that smart girls can't love shoes as well? You know the stereotype we all have about girls that read? They can't be too concerned with looks as they always have their heads in a book! This is so not true!

I love to read. In fact I hardly ever leave the house without at least two books in hand. I like to have one classic and one fun, bouncy chick-lit just in case. Sometimes I am in the mood for Ludlum, Clancy or even Stephen King-so I carry books with me. Now since Nook, I always have something to read without the bulk of books in my bag, but that doesn't mean my wardrobe is suffering. In fact, it means I can carry smaller, cuter purses and bags! (I think B&N should know they are helping us fashionista readers look better.)
I love shoes. I do. I am not sure when the addiction began, but I love them. Nothing makes me feel better than putting on a gorgeous pair of shoes! I can sort of blame Carrie Bradshaw-who is a fictional character from Candice Bushnell's novel turned super-mega-TV & Film sensation-Sex & the City. Or maybe it is just my own good taste that drives me to buy, but I love shoes.

I think I spend about the same on books as I do shoes and probably should buy stock in Barnes & Noble, because let's face it, I keep that place in business!

In any case, I am just saying-us smart girls who love to get lost in a book are also fabulous fashion divas on the side!


  1. I have a button on my messenger bag that says, Reading is Sexy. I get a lot of comments on that. ;] And one day I may actually buy B&N stock.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
