Staying Polished with OPI

I've recently landed my dream job as a Digital Director for OPI — and any girl worth her manicure knows that OPI is the most trusted, trendsetting, beloved nail lacquer brand in the world ... literally.  My days are filled with creative people, digital innovation, media genius, and lots and lots of color.  I couldn't be happier.

As they say, do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life.  What I will do, however, is have a constant stream of fashionista fabulosity to share with all of you.  And you damn well better believe I'll snap a few pictures of my latest mani wrapped around the barrel of a Glock from time to time.  I wouldn't be FMF if I didn't.

Beautiful Blueprints ... Bolt Guns & Revolvers

One of my besties forwarded me a link this morning, knowing I would fall instantly in love with what I found ... and I did.  I recently moved into a new house that I absolutely adore, and am still making finishing touches like wall art and creative elements.


What is more beautiful that the inner workings of an Ithaca shotgun or the M-16? Or, for non-gun enthusiasts, the Gibson Guitar or Sting Ray sports car?  I've always thought that blueprints had a mysterious, vintage beauty, complex and delicate at once.  Such a clever, hot, modern idea to make them art.

I've always been a big fan of Jeff Miller at, mostly because of his awesome local tips and incredible tastebuds. Now I have an even bigger reason to like him -- he just gave me props for my own tastebuds in his latest article, The 14 Best Brunches in Los Angeles.

He was even smart ... er ... gracious enough to link to my own article about one of his best brunch choices, Laurel Hardware in West Hollywood.  Cheers to you, Jeff, and to everyone who reads your article.  Make sure to have a mimosa for me.

THIS is Vegan?!

Okay. So. You know I love my cheeseburgers, foie gras, and sushi. But when a friend recently went on a vegan kick just to challenge herself and cleanse her body of dairy, I decided to join her.  You know.  For fun.

I am lucky enough to live around the corner from Crossroads, a fine dining vegan restaurant on Melrose in Los Angeles.  I have to tell you, if this is what it means to be vegan, I'm on board.

Lasagna made with cashew cheese.  Spaghetti squash that has renewed my love of the vegetable.  Crabs cakes made from hearts of palm and artichokes.  Delicious, fresh, rich, unique dishes delicious in their own right, not masquerading as anything else but yummy.

And I felt much better after devouring this platter, I have to tell you.  My own homemade pasta marinara with meatballs is still my fave, but for a change and something healthy, Crossroads is killer.
