Q & A.

Q:  Who would portray you in the movie version of your life? Feature film, straight to DVD, or Lifetime Movie?
A:  Feature film for sure! So many twists and turns! Possibly portrayed by Naomie Harris, Sanaa Lathan, or Thandie Newton.

Q:  What artists or songs would contribute to the film's soundtrack?
A:  Vance Joy, Mumford and Sons, CeeLo Green, John Legend, Ellie Goulding, and, wait for it... ABBA.

Q:  What's the best advice you didn't take? 
A:  "Be patient, everything will work out." I think if it doesn't feel right there's not much sense in waiting for something to change. Your life will go in the direction you take it. 

Q:  What film title sums up your experiences with love thus far?
A:  Grease (read into that however you see fit).

Q:  If your beauty routine had to be condensed, what three products make the cut?
A:  Mascara, Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner, and Shea Butter Lip Balm.

Q:  What is your alter ego's name? Describe her in one word.
A:  Luciana Fire. Hot.

Q:  What's the title of your autobiography – using one color and one emotion?
A:  Restless Girl, Scarlet Dreams. 

Q:  Would you rather have no regrets or no fears?
A:  No fears. I'd do everything I've ever wanted without reservation or hesitation. Also, I think regret is sourced in fear. Eradicate them both by being fearless.

Q:  What's your definition of dime?
A:  To me a dime is someone who is open, kind, yet unashamed and determined. She doesn't put limits on herself. She believes, she loves, she grows; but she's also an encourager and builds up those around her.

Q:  What words do you live by?
A:  Can't never could.

happy holi-daze gift guide: one for you, one for me...

i hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it actually is the gift that counts. let's be honest, no one is interested in the thought behind a flavored ham of the month club. and if you think that i could use anything at all that is sold exclusively on television at three o'clock in the morning, please think again. the wrong gift can turn a perfectly functional family gathering into the following: twelve accounts payable, eleven assigned seats, ten crocodile tears, nine family feuds, eight sucker punches, seven binge eaters, six sibling rivalries, five intoxicated confessions, four kissing cousins, three surprise engagements, two new chefs [who made the potato salad?], and a raw turkey to eat. i've compiled a lovely list of gift ideas guaranteed to bring only peace, love, and joy. i am wishing you all so much bliss and many blessings this holiday season.

loft space: pantone universe for room copenhagen.

pantone swatches have become somewhat iconic in their own right, almost as a separate entity from their initial collective purpose as a color management tool. this series of simple color blocks individually identified by its pantone number has inspired an entire pantone universe – fully equipped with a hotel. the appreciation of the pantone system as a food group via david schwen's food pairings and emilie guelpa's pantone tarts is even more impressive. the pantone universe for room copenhagen collaboration took this visual taste test one step further, offering a range of appetizing options in food preparation, table settings, and organization. pantone's trademark color block design and room copenhagen's modern take on brand classics make this collection a design functional canvas for home and office.
