gilmore girls

  No spoilers about the new season of Gilmore Girls on Netflix other than this – it is outstanding. I was such a big fan of the original show that I considered naming my daughter Lorelei. My son is named Luke, and I the show did have some role in that choice of name (although was just part of the naming consideration). It’s probably a good thing that they are not Luke and Lorelei though because that would be pretty… Read more »

  In case you didn’t know, Julep is one of my favorite beauty brands and a sponsor of Classical Bohemian. I recommend picking up or gifting the nail polish gift sets (the only nail color I wear) and the lip crayons (great color and moisturizer in one). Plus, your purchase supports this blog!

style and personal branding

    So, this week I went for my visit with the eye doctor and picked out some new glasses. I’ve had the same glasses for two years, and while I love them, it was time for a change. I used to wear contacts when I was involved in playing sports, but now I am just happy to have a fun face accessory.   One pair of glasses immediately caught my attention. They were completely amazing, but I thought there was… Read more »
