    Taylor Swift Breaks Free on ‘Reputation’

    TAYLOR SWIFT SWINGS THE DOOR OPEN ON ‘REPUTATION,’ REVEALING HERSELF TO FANS FOR THE FIRST TIME. It was five years ago when I met Taylor Swift for the first time. I was at an awards show afterparty in Nashville, unknowing that the most famous singer in music was just behind a set of closed doors. While grabbing a mixed drink cocktail from the bar, I ran into a friend. One who had been spending the evening with Taylor and her friends, and who later led me “behind the curtain,” through a sea of people to the entry of a room that held the secrets of an early Taylor Swift reputation.…

    Getting Your Sparkle Back With These Simple Steps

    Listen, sometimes in life — with work, education, and family noise — we can lose a little bit of our spark. It’s small things that you might not notice at first. One morning you don’t manage to fit in your normal routine, or you find yourself slinging on the same outfit day after day. You might even find that when once you would wear bright colors and bold prints, that your confidence to do such things has lessened somehow. It can happen to anyone, at any point. Life sometimes has a way of getting in the way. If we are going to be real about it, it has happened to…

    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.

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…
