This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

This fall, fashion houses are receiving inspiration from Scotland. Last weekend, I attended the Nordstrom Fall Trend Show where guests were greeted with an array of tartan looks.

Nordstrom is just too clever. My local store places Milly’s most mesmerizing pieces on the path to Habitant, the new gathering spot for drinks and small plates. When a girl is in the middle of a serious shopping session, she’s bound to get hungry;)

On a more serious note, it you haven’t seen my analysis of the important historic decision Scotland made last week, here it is.
