I wasn't born to be a rider, I was born to be writer.

I recently collaborated with csnstores.com, and when I received an e-mail from Cameron, I basically did a happy dance because I was getting another opportunity to work with a company renowned for its infinite shopping possibilities and unprecedented customer satisfaction. The holidays are approaching, and with 200+ online retailers and over 1 million products available, at CSN you can virtually find everything from designer accessories to Rachel Ray cookware, or even a chic leather briefcase to accent your new Missoni home d├ęcor!
As a writer, I'm willing to wield my pen and paper at any opportunity possible. Whether it's completely illegible scribbles, to-do lists, company reviews, articles, e-mails, designer profiles, love letters, grocery lists, or a quick rush to the paper scraps scattered throughout my house to jot down a few random thoughts before they escape me indefinitely... I was born to be a writer. Couple this simple fact with my love of buying things, wearing things, and styling things, and the two become this beautiful utopia where I can actually have my cake and eat it too. Metaphorically speaking.
So if you're interested in collaborating with a veritable cornucopia of fabulous online retailers or just need a little retail therapy, visit csnstores.com, where they have it all at your fingertips.

Don't forget to check back to see which products I choose, and be sure to read additional collaborations with CSN here, here, and here.

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
