Hello to you on this Monday! For today's Modern Monday post, I'd like to talk about modern day moms. Lately I've had baby on the brain; I'm 32 years old, and the clocks a tickin'. Seeing my sisters kids, I wonder if I'll be able to handle motherhood as graciously as they do. I love getting a sneak peek into celebs lives to see how they're balancing their own… Continue

An inside look into creative people's homes and heads!: Favorite blog of the moment, The Selby

Oh another blog for the blog roll on the front page! Joy! My sister Grace sent me an email this morning, telling me about her favorite blog of the moment, The Selby.

World Animal Day

"World Animal Day was observed earlier this month - on October 4th. Started in Florence Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists, World Animal Day has since expanded its focus from its original intent, which was to bring attention to endangered or threatened species. The day is now set aside as a time to reflect on all of the animals we share this world with, and our involvement with them - and to spur action to commemorate that respectful relationship. Half the world's mammals are…

Haven't Been to the LACMA Recently? Go to See Some Warhol, Lichtenstein and Koons Art at the BCAM.

Frankly, MTV seems to always disappoint me (what kind of Britney showing was that last night?!), I'd rather watch the newest show on Bravo (thanks sis for the heads up on Rachel Zoe's new show) or check out a festival or art… Continue

As much as the Met has opened up new and exciting opportunities and ideas, it's also given me a fair amount of stress. Putting yourself out to the public is damn scary, I don't care who you are. So as much as I love conquering that fear, I can't help but struggle with it each and every day.

Here are the particular questions that have haunted me these past few weeks:

1. Will I ever feel ready to open up the Met to the public?

2.… Continue

Me? An Ambassador?

Ok, so I guess this is where the self-love comes in (Kara, I am trying).

I wanted to tell you how I became 1 of 100 ambassadors of OneWebDay, 'cause it's quite hilarious.

I wanted to sign up for a social network or Web 2.0 conference, so I was clicking around on websites (this was literally 2 days ago) and happened to come across something about Craig Newmark. I had read about him before but saw that he had a… Continue
