Driving Lessons And City-Kid Problems
Let me tell you a little story about growing up in the city. Specifically, around age 16. Those of you who live…oh, anywhere else…probably learned to drive on wide-open, leafy streets lined with beloved friends and relatives all waving little flags, ushering kittens, trash cans, and other small dangers out of your path, and generally cheering you on. Or at least that’s how I...

Snow-White Denim And Narrowly Averted Disaster
In which I live dangerously. You know, I almost never wear white jeans. Mostly because they stress me out: I live in New York City, and I’m a massive klutz (see, for reference: the last time you saw me wear white pants on RG). Oh yes, and the baby thing. But I love them, I do: they just look so chic and crisp and effortless, and when they’re stretchy and lightweight and...
Summer Beauty Switch-Up
The weather in New York hasn’t started to steam up to maximum capacity quiiiiite yet, but it will very, very soon. And I have this vision of myself sitting on a beach, or in a park, or wherever, makeup-free, with gorgeous, glowing, blemish-free skin. It’s a lovely vision. It’s just not the easiest one to realize in…you know, reality. Here’s the thing: my skin tends to even itself out once it...
Jordan In The House: Pop Art And Polar Bears
My regular videographer, John, wasn’t able to come along for this week’s Coney Island segment…so I roped in a very special substitute. Oh yes, and then I swam in 48-degree water. Original Article
At 1:55AM this morning, I was startled awake by the words “Jenna Von Oy.” Not out loud. In my head. I have no explanation for this, either. Anyway, I couldn’t get back to sleep after that (that whole crippling insomnia thing I’ve moaned about before). And now I’m going fishing (belated Father’s Day present for Dad). Come hang out with me on...
By Request: Steak-And-Egg Wraps
Q. The Daily Fiona: That steak and egg wrap…do tell. Eggs, avocado, steak, anything else? Those three ingredients - marinated skirt steak, sliced avocado, and scrambled eggs - are pretty much it (although I would suggest adding shredded cheese of some sort), but that’s because I like my wraps on the simpler side. Of course you can always get crazy with the add-ons - Kendrick certainly...
Share Your Style / Daily Candy + Dove Pinterest...
This is me (and Kendrick) in the Hamptons, the one time that I managed to make it there in my 31 years (and simultaneously managed to break the beautiful house that we were staying in, which is what’s happening above). It’s extremely fun and glamorous and all those things that you’ve heard it is. And! I’m going back. I am so excited; extra excited because there’s a...
Things that happened this weekend: I spotted a truly awesome vest (at TopShop)… Mom and I ate even awesomer pasta (in Little Italy; I couldn’t decide whether to get the spinach ravioli or the gnocchi, so the kitchen whipped me up a little half-and-half action)… We made a stop into Ferrara Bakery for cannolis and display-gazing… We got a bright-and-early start to...

BBQ & Baby
Just got home from the annual Piano Factory BBQ (that’s the building I grew up in, and I’m still close to lots of the people who live there). It’s a pretty gorgeous place - you may remember it from this JITH segment featuring my mama. Guess who was the hit of the party? (Hint: that person is a) pictured above, and b) not me.) That top that I’m wearing, by the way, is a...

Like I'm In Summer Camp
I went to summer camp exactly twice. The first time barely counted: I spent a week at a very intense gymnastics camp, so it was much less “s’mores and canoeing” and much more “soul-crushing competition and tears”. I did, however, get to play in those crazy pits full of foam cubes (a secret dream of mine, always), and I met a boy named Kyle. It was one of those...
We're Not In Malibu Anymore
The summer after graduation, shortly after I moved to Los Angeles, I found myself living in Malibu in an Oscar-winner’s house. My boyfriend Rob’s best friend had gotten engaged to Mira Sorvino, and they were getting married that summer, in Italy. We couldn’t afford to make the trip to the wedding, so we volunteered to spend a few weeks watching their house and dogs for them. A...
Click through to read today’s (very interesting, in my completely biased opinion) PensEyeView interview with Kendrick, including his perspective on the Brooklyn music scene today, why he made the switch from Music As Business to Music That Made Sense To Him, and stories about strippers and Britney Spears concerts. Obviously. (Here’s some songs.) Original Article
