It’s mid-January, kids, and it’s cold. If you’ve lost feeling in your fingers and toes, I understand. Yesterday, an icy gust of wind hit us like a slap to the face: it’s cooooold outdoors. This doesn’t mean you need to bid your fashionable clothing adieu until Spring, though. With clever layering and jacket combos…

Think before you ink

From the age of (let’s say) 18 I’ve been playing with the idea to get a small and humble tattoo done one day. After thinking about it for multiple years, I’m still indecisive about the whole thing. It’s quite something, having a tattoo on your body for the rest of your life. When…

Life – according to Marilyn Monroe
