Your May Horoscope: Week II

I try to make all weekly decisions based off these star charts- I hope you all do the same!  Aries: If you haven’t tried it recently, quit your job. You’ll be amazed at how different life becomes when you don’t have a steady income.  Taurus: Enjoy a hot cup of coffee at least once this week. The warm, soothing flavors will make it easier to get over the guilt you’re feeling after you betrayed your best friend. Gemini: Don’t buy…

DIY Baby Career Reveal Cake

My boyfriend A and I have been getting into all sorts of arguments and disagreements recently and it’s honestly been really upsetting. At first I thought it was because of the full moon (him being a Gemini and all) but when I started to push him to talk he finally dropped a major bomb… His wife is pregnant. AGAIN. I was beyond shocked- here he won’t even give me an engagement ring but he’s all ready to give her a baby?…

Get the Look: The PETA Vic.

As I’m sure you all have heard, Cleveland Fashion Week was out of this world this year- and I’m not just talking about designer Peiter Von Gabrielle’s martian inspired ear muffs. Thanks to my elite blogger status, I had a front row seat to 3 of the most incredible runway shows I have EVER attended and I can say with 75% certainty that fashion in 2017 will be better than it was in 1876, 1922, 1975, 1987, 1991 and 2011…

Your Guide to Poormet

Raise your hand if you’ve experienced any of the following problems: You’re a recent grad with a low paying job just wishing you could enjoy a nice meal every once in a while.

March Fashion Forecast

This post is actually dedicated to our number one fan, Mildo- who I think has really been with Des Geulasse since the beginning. Mildo, we are so happy you are out of jail again and are recovering. I know last week was hard when both my sister and I were unable to post on the blog due to Primrose being in the ice skating accident and me having to get my nails done, however we are really glad you stuck…

A Drinkable Superfood

Last week A introduced me to what is probably my newest fave superfood. I am LITERALLY crazy about it, it is changing the way I live my life! I definitely had heard of it before- but to be honest I was never really interested in trying it before because it sounded pretty bland. It wasn’t until we were out at dinner last week and A offered me a sip that I realized I have totally been missing out. And THEN…

Vodka Talks

We had a little birthday party today at the Des Geulasse office for one of our newer employees: IT support, Cate. I absolutely adore when we get to have parties because my sister and I totally go all out with cake, balloons and strippers. People get so excited about the cake! This time we thought it would be fun to invite some of our employees (the ones we like) to participate in our monthly series, Vodka Talks. After everyone did…

A Little Home by the Sea

I feel so blessed to have been invited into the home of Rebecca O’Becca this past weekend for a tour of her absolutely charming cottage located in the amazing Seal Beach, CA. It was such a pleasure to get to experience her great taste in design up close (rather than through her window, late at night, like I usually do). Rebecca- or Amanda as she goes by with friends- has an absolute eye for the details and her home is a…

Your February Horoscope: Week I

It’s my favorite time of the week: a post about how the stars whisper to me from the shadows and pass on their weekly fortunes. Spoiler alert: some of our readers are in for an amazing Sunday. Aries: Big plans for the weekend often lead to bigger disappointments. Try not to schedule anything, just let it happen.  Taurus: When the planets align in your favor, great things can be accomplished. This won’t be happening anytime soon, but it’s nice to know.…
