I am finally warming up to the denim on denim trend. The key to this look is making sure your varying denim pieces have enough contrast. Here, I try a light denim top with my trusty “everyday” jeans which have a darker wash. These basics create a canvas for a variety of colors which can be layered on through necklaces and other accessories. It’s a great dressed-up casual look that even the neighborhood cat would approve of (see last picture). Speaking of warming up, is it Spring yet?

I am not a huge pizza fan but a recent trip to DC’s Menomale has made me a convert (at least for an authentic Neopolitan pizza). With a delicious meal comes a delicious surprise. Our pizzas came with our very own pizza cutter in the shape of scissors, a Scizza to be exact. I love the ergonomic design of the handles and the flat bottom spatula. Hallelujah! A way to cleanly cut a slice of pizza! I learned that the Scizza is made by an Australian company called Dreamfarm. Dreamfarm’s story begins by stating “‘We solve problems” and developing products based on its ability to answer one question – “Will this product solve a real problem that hasn’t been solved Read more
