If candy and soda can come out of machines, why can’t cupcakes? Well, thanks to famed cupcake chain Sprinkles, they finally can.

Ok, let me just start with this: What I’ve been saying for the past 24 hours: “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” If you know me, you know my obsession for Giada.  Actually, I think there are people who don’t know me and know my obsession for Giada.  Her shows, her recipes, her life … in general, she is my idol.

If you’re reading this, I’ve landed in Italia for a two-week vacation all over the boot. Or, as I’ve been calling it, my honeymoon without the wedding.

It’s wedding season! Just a week ago, we were celebrating the marriage of Tom’s twin sister, wed in Philadelphia to her high school sweetheart. But a new weekend means new celebrations (and more brides).  On Saturday, the girls and I headed to the Hamptons (via limo) to celebrate my best friend’s soon-to-be-eliminated singleness. This was

Ok, maybe the last part is a stretch.  But that kind of sums of my weekend. On Saturday, I had a triple date with my two best friends to celebrate Danielle’s promotion, Nicole’s wedding plans, et cetera.  I claimed the “et cetera” and said that’s what we could celebrate for me … not sure what
