holiday gift guide: for me

Did you think I would do gift guides and not one for myself? Get out of town. There are a few ridiculous things on this list but isn’t that the point of making one? That’s what I thought. But there are also some good ideas on here for that person who is the hardest to shop for ever. I think I might be this person. Might. I’ve also included more ideas below. And since it’s freezing here, these sneakers are amazing and any gal would love to have them. Including myself.

Don’t forget to go watch me act (or try to) in today’s episode of Pinched!

ALSO…today is my Mom’s birthday, guys! Happy Birthday, Mom. You don’t look a day over 35.


It’s a throwback Thursday! Also, I have no idea who took this picture but I know they did an awful job. Not everyone was looking in the same place, my grandpa’s head got cut off, I’m trying to steal my grandma’s drink. Ridiculous. Obviously my mom is not the woman who I am sitting on (so we’re all clear).

outfit: buffalo check

I think I bought this coat back in 2010 and then promptly forgot it existed. A coat such as this is not necessary in California and since I was living there at the time, I didn’t wear it. A few weeks ago when I was getting my winter coats out I was like “holy crap”. Like did I actually buy something and then keep it? Did this happen? Did I really buy a peplum coat years ago. I was so ahead of the trends. Ha.

I know it’s a total jerk thing to post a coat that you cannot buy. Lucky for you, I’m not being a douche today. Below I’ve rounded up a few similar coats that I think would be just as awesome. I almost bought the J.Crew one and I’m sort of happy I didn’t because wouldn’t it be silly to have two coats that are basically the same? Of course it wouldn’t be! But I keep telling myself it would.

Also, people, please head on over to the Pinched YouTube channel and peep today’s episode!

the case debate

I have a huge white girl problem. Huge. I got a new phone almost two months ago and cannot find a case that I like. Wait, that’s false. I like the leather one Apple made however my headphones are not compatible with said case. This does not please me. Consequently, I haven’t been able to listen to any music on my commute. This is KEY to NYC living, people. So it’s a freaking issue.

That being said, it is hard to find a case that will accommodate the headphone pluggy inny thing and that I like. Below are a few that I rounded up. I’m taking votes. So please be kind and leave yours below.

If you put a gun to my head and made me choose a favorite, I don’t know if I could. I really love the Mara Hoffman (top left) and the Coach (bottom right) but as a wild card the Moschino is just way too freaking cute. That bad boy also comes in different colors. Also, it is important to note that I am continually misplacing my phone so perhaps I should get a more colorful, easier to find case?

I’ve rounded up a few more below in addition to those above. What do you think? Lend me your thoughts!

premier day!

I promise I won’t turn this blog into a platform for me to get you to watch my webseries but you guys, come on. Pinched, the series, is live today! If you don’t want to watch it, who does? Amiright? Also, this might be the hardest I’ve worked on anything in a long time.

There are 11 episodes in total and I do the running man in one of them. I won’t tell you which one, you’ll just have to watch them all to find out. Ha!


Do me a kindness okay and head right this way to check it out! And then, if you really love me and/or just feel sorry for me, tell all your friends. The episodes aren’t very long at all so you can definitely watch them at work for a little break-a-roo. Let me know what you think either on the comments section of our YouTube page or below.

Thanks for all your support! You all are the and a half.
