During a trip to Chicago last weekend, I was inspired to come up with a new series -- The Product Edit. In this series, I'll provide an honest review on some of the products I buy, have a passion for and use. The first featured product in this series: the Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag. Sweet Home . . .

It's been one long year. Last Winter I told myself that by this Christmas I'd pull the trigger on my first over-the-knee (AKA OTK) boot by Stuart Weitzman. I was pretty set on the tan Rockerchic and then transitioned to the Lowland, for its sexy practicality. When I tried the boots on with Trevor . . .
When I accepted the offer with Nordstrom, I negotiated an extra week off between jobs since I had a trip planned and was really hoping for that extra time to spend regrouping. They were very gracious and I was so thankful. It's crazy to think, that most people jump from job to job, without taking . . .
Hello 2017! I welcome you with open arms. Not with relieving arms or anything, because 2016 was pretty effing awesome. Especially if you peek at the goals I set for myself and for Trevor and I for the year: learn how to use my DSLR -- check! create something -- hi, it's me, The Grey . . .

Music has always been a pretty big part of my life. I really think I owe this to my mother who would play music of all kinds in our house. When my dad was out of town for work, she'd turn the stereo volume on loud and we'd sing at the top of our lungs dancing around the kitchen. Some favorites of . . .
The plus side to moving into a home with a few extra bedrooms (and no children yet) is that you can create a personal room or two, which is what Trevor and I did in our first home. He has his office on the main floor, and I have mine on the second floor. Both are considered bedrooms, as they have . . .
