My dude looks like my dad 2.0

Remember this post about women who are dating or married to men who look like their dads?

Well, Zoe Kravitz has topped them ALL. Boyfriend Twin Shadow looks a lot like her dad Lenny Kravitz.

Maiden name? How about it’s just MY name.

If you’ve been coming here for a while, you’ll recall that I posted here about how I have no interest in changing my name if I ever get married (seemingly unlikely, right?).

These are a few of my favorite things (right now anyway)

I don’t know about you, but Spring is making me Spend. Here is where my money is going right now.

These Marc by Marc Jacobs sandals.

High, but not too high. For me, the ankle strap is important for comfort. I booked a fresh pedicure appointment right after they arrived in the mail. Gotta be ready.
