I should have known that if I had just talked to the wise Marchetta Harrington Burlingham, all of my problems would have been solved. Duh.Yesterday before watching my extremely talented cousin, Emilia, play the violin at the Segerstrom, the Keetsmeister was telling me how much she loved my name, Julia, and how I am related… Continue reading My Grandma is a Genius.
Ok, so I need full reader participation on this one. The other day I was working on my senior project (obviously) and it dawned on me that I had yet to come up with a name for my soon to be thriving fashion company. When I was 10, I came up with “Pink Zipper Co.”… Continue reading
I think this is the first time ever that I’ve been excited for warmer weather to come. Although this has not been the harshest of winters, there is something in me that just wants to pull on a pair of shorts and lay in the sun for hours while eating summery food like tuna sandwiches… Continue reading Spring has Sprung…ish.

Being the ridiculously good dramatic writer that I am, I’ve left many-a-cliff-hanger unanswered. Where I’m going to college, for example, or the status of my senior project, perhaps.

Yesterday I got into my dream school….my other dream school. And what I thought would be a great and exciting thing is turning into the hardest decision in the world! SCAD or Parsons? I could fully go through both arguments on here, but that would take up about two pages of back and forth and… Continue reading SCAD vs. Parsons. Let the War begin.
So, last night’s Oscars were good. Good. Not outstanding just good. I think that Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin did a great job adding funny yet still clean humor to the night and the Kodak theatre looked great. The show seemed to go off without a hitch. I am so glad that none of the… Continue reading The Rundown
(Scroll down to read original post)….As if I could only narrow it down to 5. Puh-lease. Here are some more of my faves. As much as Marion Cotillard bugs me due to the fact that she seems as dumb as a box of rocks, I cannot deny the amazingness of this dress. It sticks out… Continue reading Oscar Fashion Part II
Boy, do I love the Oscars. I watch all of the awards shows, but there is something about the Oscars that feels extra special and memorable. My favorite part of the Oscars, like everyone else, is obviously those rare fashion moments where a beautiful celebrity walks down the red carpet in a gown perfect for… Continue reading And the Academy Award goes to…
