Wearing LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s

Tillie Adelson My Stiletto Life LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's

    From The Hills to LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's This is the first time I have shopped a Lauren Conrad item and I have to say, it’s very cute and affordable fashion. From wearing her clothes and seeing how she’s morphed into a lifestyle guru it seems almost surreal. I followed her debut as a reality star on MTV’s The Hills pretty closely, as I am the same age as her and was living in Los Angeles while the show aired.  It didn’t seem plausible that this young girl would someday move away from the reality TV world and leverage her fame as a go-to lifestyle influencer but, I must say, I do really like the brand she’s created from the content on her website, to her Instagram posts, and now to her…

Favorite London Moments

Lauren Conrad Runway Top Kohl's

A Rare Sunny Weekend in London! I'm back from London (sad face) but I am happy to report that I managed to visit London on the rare occasion where there was no rain, plenty of sun and clear skies!  It was a whirlwind of a trip but, luckily, as I mentioned in my previous post, I have been before, so it wasn't crucial for me to see every historic monument/spot London has to offer.  This time it was more for play; I really wanted to experience the city as one would if they were living there. A quick visit to Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. Oh Prince George are you in?  Well the toddler had a previous engagement, so we weren't able to connect on this trip--but I did manage to visit his future…

London for the Weekend

  “Kids: Big Ben, Parliament!” I can’t think about London without thinking of Chevy Chase going round and round, in circles, as he tirelessly tries to exit the roundabout in National Lampoons European Vacation.  That movie is always classic and always relevant. It's especially relevant now because I am off to London for the weekend! I have been doing copious amounts of research to make sure I make stops at notable London hot spots and also find some new places to explore. My voracious appetite for all things London is just enhanced with the curiosity and awe I have always had for the British monarchy.  I just finished listening to an Amazon Audible book called William and Harry by Kate Nicholl, watching The Royals documentary on Netflix, and just finished the movie Diana, starring…

Whitney Museum

what to do in nyc whitney museum

Have you heard!?  Someone named Whitney just moved into the Meatpacking district in NYC and everyone is flocking to see her...well it's not exactly a she...it's more of an it.  Although, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney was a woman who was a great advocate for American artists and took it upon herself to create a space to house the art she wanted to see. So I (and my parents) had to see the latest sensation to enter the meatpacking since Samantha did on Sex and the City.  The Whitney Museum is a fabulous place: it's modern, stylistic, and spacious.  It's more of an all day destination rather than a museum.  Yes, each floor houses American art from different decades, but it seems that most people go for the experience.  The museum is asymmetrical with many levels and balconies…

NYC Street Scenes

But First Coffee   Hi All!  Pardon the delay in my posting--I have been working on remodeling the website, so my content hasn't been as frequent, but believe me it will be worth the wait!  In the meantime, I thought I'd share some NYC street scenes from my weekend.  My parents are in town and it has presented us with some fun opportunities to eat in the new restaurants and explore new places. The weekend began with some lovely cocktails Saturday evening, then continued the next morning at brunch.  I found a Lower East Side gem via Instagram called Dudley's (see food pics above) and it was seriously delicious.  What you see in the full table picture (from right to left) is a hamburger with fries with an aioli dipping sauce (get extra fries!), avocado toast…
