I first became familiar with Nelson’s work when I saw his piece “Swin Party” in the movie “Something’s Gotta Give.” Photo: Kenton Nelson Incredible painting. The colors are so saturated. When I look at it, I think Southern California in the late 30’s. I know this painting will be on a future mood board. Look … Continue reading Weekend Inspiration – Kenton Nelson
It’s time to hit the courts. There are a lot of things I enjoy about playing tennis. It’s fun, it’s outdoors, it’s a sport you can play for life, and the clothes. I’m dead serious. From a very young age, I’ve LOVED tennis outfits. I like to keep my clothes simple, no lace or crazy … Continue reading Il Tennis

It’s a cloudy, rainy day in Rome. To be honest, I’m so over the rainy season it’s not funny. Perhaps living in sunny Los Angeles for ten years has ruined my ability to cope with normal winter weather. I went to college in Upstate New York. I’m from the East Coast.

Years ago when I was in the middle of hell a Hollywood film development executive, I worked 24/7. I also made no money, but on my birthday I would buy either a bag, shoes, or jewelry. For a few years (until the production company I worked for shut down) I alternated between which item to … Continue reading Stylish Simplicity – Earrings – Me&Ro Jewelry
For those who don’t watch NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”, here are two clips explaining what the heck the title of this post is referring to. Not having a steady paycheck is of course one of the major downsides of starting your own company and/or being a writer. Your landlord doesn’t care if your latest script … Continue reading It’s Important To Treat. Yo. Self.
I’m in shock. Nobody outside her immediate family knew she was even ill. Here’s a link to the ABC News breaking report about her death. While she may be better known for her films, Nora was also a very witty journalist/novelist. Her book “I Feel Bad About My Neck” is hilarious. Nora and her words … Continue reading RIP Nora Ephron
My first trip to southern France was incredible. My friend’s boss invited me to join them on his yacht. At first I wasn’t sure about going since I didn’t have a film at the festival and I had nothing to wear. I like to have a plan. What exactly would I do in Cannes? My … Continue reading Buon Viaggio – Cannes and St. Tropez
I went to Cannes last week for the film festival as a guest of my friend’s boss. I cannot get this song out of my head. It plays during the trailer of the new Wes Anderson movie, “Moonrise Kingdom”, which was the opening film of the festival.
