I do love a red carpet event and I had great fun checking out what the stars wore today to the 2010 Emmy Awards. There were numerous gowns I loved, including some fabulous gowns by women famous for their less-styled charactered (check out Tina Fey […]

We’re back online after some technical issues over the weekend – apologies if it caused you any inconvenience. To make it up to you, I’d like to share this little ditty from the Wendy’s training archives. The song has been stuck in my head ever […]

(almost) at the movies: black swan – the trailer

A few weeks ago, I wrote about Natalie Portman’s exciting new film, Black Swan (read it here). Now the full theatrical trailer has been released and it’s as eerie and twisted as I’d hoped. Release date in the US is December 1. Still no word […]
