    Woman Crush Wednesday: Camila Giorgi

    As the 32nd best player on the WTA circuit, the Italian sensation continues to serve up the right moves both on and off the court! It’s a second Camila in our regular feature, as Camila Giorgi follows Camila Cabello as my Wednesday Crush Wednesday. In truth, I couldn’t look anywhere else. Camila Giorgi broke onto the tennis scene as a fresh-faced 21-year-old at the 2013 US Open. Five years later, she’s being tipped for a terrific 2019. This is after rediscovering her form over recent months to match her career-best WTA ranking at #30 in the world in September.  Her accomplishments on the court include:  Reaching her first Grand Slam…

    Starting a New Chapter: 3 Ways to Follow Through

    When you think back, your family might have started a few new chapters already over the years. Getting married, having your first child, starting a new job, finally getting that promotion – and, of course, moving to a new home. All of these transitions can be really challenging and some might be a bit tougher than others; when you know what you’re up against, however, and come prepared, you might find that the change is actually welcome. Whatever chapter you’re starting in your life, make sure that you’ve prepared yourself into a state of mind that can happily accept all of the turbulence that is to come. Here is a…

    Fall Fashion: Must Have Menswear

    THE FIRST DAY OF FALL MEANS CRISPER WEATHER, PUMPKIN-SPICED EVERYTHING AND FALL FASHION! It’s no secret summer weather is not my favorite (see: 5 Reasons I am Over Summer), especially when it comes to summer style. So after months of sweating my way through meetings, happy hours and bug-infested porch time, I am beyond ready to welcome fall (and fall fashion). Today marks the first day of the cooler season. And though there’s no sign of the crisper temps swirling through the air quite yet, I can’t help but start thinking about my cozy wool sweaters, fashion-forward jackets and denim on denim (on denim) that’s been stuck in the back…

    Throwback Thursday: Summer Playlist

    As the storms that rocked our nation in the final stretch of summer begin to clear and the healing begins, cooler temps arrive to remind us that the season is officially coming to an end. If you’re like me, you’re eagerly anticipating the colder, sweater weather. But more than just the PSLs and crisper fall air, the season delivers fresh new albums from many anchoring artists in music. The ladies are set to rule the fall season this year with releases from Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Camila Cabello, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, P!nk, Shania Twain and more set to drop before the holiday season arrives. But before we usher in…

    Café Roze… All Day

    When Bar Luca closed in my East Nashville neighborhood, I was devastated. Mostly because the lighting was perfection for photos, but the rosé on tap didn’t hurt either. Then Café Roze opened their doors just blocks from my new home. Hidden deep on East Nashville’s Porter Road, Café Roze looked like it was the answer to my Bar Luca void. Score! Our first trip to Café Roze (pronounced like the flower, not the wine) was forgettable. The bitchy queen that greeted us at the door was unfriendly and his explanation of the wait times sent us packing up the street. I persevered though, unable to give up on the quaint new…

    Man Crush Monday: My Love Story

    V for Vetrano here with some not-so-breaking news. In one of my recent posts, I dropped a bomb about wedding planning which made some of you go “woah… wait!…what?!” Sorry about that.

But after years of blogging about music and entertainment, I’m finally ready to share my love story and a peek into my life outside of the Housewives, Taylors and Britneys.

    Let Kelly Clarkson Move You: The Deep Cuts

    She’s back! Kelly Clarkson debuted her highly anticipated new single “Love So Soft” this morning. The singer took to her socials over the last week to tease the new single with imagery and short clips of the track. Then yesterday, she teased the hashtag #MoveYou accompanied by a clip of what sounds like another track causing the internet to go into a frenzy. “Is a full Clarkson album on the way?,” “Are we getting a double dose of new Kelly goodness?” This morning, along with Clarkson’s new fiery single, she dropped the emotional new ballad “Move You,” along with the artwork (seen below) and title of her upcoming album. When talking…

    5 Reasons I Am Over Summer

    It’s no secret if you know me, I don’t care much for summer. I know it’s a controversial statement and I’m likely in the minority, but I’m not a fan of sweating through every layer of clothing I own. Which probably explains my struggle with fitness. And more than that, I’ve somehow managed to be the only person in my large Italian family that can’t catch a tan. At least without burning to a crisp first. There’s nothing more I love to do on a hot summer day than sit inside and cuddle up to a movie on the couch. In fact, why even get out of bed at all?…

    Dear Katy Perry: An Open Letter to a Pop Star

    Dear Katy Perry, You look tired. The vivacious pop star that once graced the top of the charts with pop masterpieces that made boys dream about “California Girls” and girls relive their “Last Friday Night” is seemingly distant. And that’s okay. We’re not mad, we’re just worried. What started as a low-key feud with Taylor Swift, turned into a full-blown war. A war you’re not winning. You performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2015; a moment that should have defined you, at the top of your game. The colorful performance though was second fiddle to the “left shark controversy” regarding Swift’s male dancer. That’s what people remember. Then…

    Fitness Check-In: Off The Wagon

    Hey all, it’s me again. V for Vetrano here to report on the fitness journey that you all joined me on a couple weeks ago, as I kicked off my commitment from #FatToFit. Thanks for the support btw! The first couple of weeks were good. I felt motivated, I showed up to Takes 2 Fitness regularly and even joined my friend Sara for a Sunday morning class (yes, I skipped brunch for bettering my body. What?!). Then something happened. Cafe Roze opened in my neighborhood, my best friend Cassadee Pope had a birthday and SHED Fitness kicked my ass. And just as fast as I was on the right track, I was…
