Modern Family – Tonight. ABC. 9pm. The best comedy on television. Here’s to hoping that Cam & Mitchell dress Lily up for St. Patrick’s Day (fingers crossed).
Madonna – Because she’s designing a clothing line, inspired by her daughter Lourdes. Love.
Movie screenings – Best friend and I are off to see a screening of She’s Out Of My League. Appropriate movie choice, because it’s our favorite thing to tell boys. Kidding.
And one thing that we definitely don’t love today – the need to double check the authenticity of designer merchandise from a certain retailer. Um, what's the opposite of fabulous?

Diversity on the runways – Fellow designers, take a cue from Diane von Furstenberg.
Froyo – Of the Pinkberry kind. Temperatures in Boston finally rose above freezing, which means dinners of tart frozen yogurt are in the near future.
Alexander McQueen’s final collection – Amazing use of color, geometric shape and design. R.I.P.
Last night’s Gossip Girl – And today’s recap courtesy of NYMag.com.

Lip applique dress by Philosophy di Alberta Feretti - Party dress splurging doesn't solely correlate with proms and formals. Such events are of the past, but breaking out a fun dress stays appropriate. Wear it out to dinner with your best friends. Wear it out for martinis. Wear it with a pair of nude platform pumps and go shopping. Watch jaws drop instantaneously.
Taro chips by Terra - Imagine a whole bag of the best chip in Terra's assorted bag. It's like a canister full of only red gummy bears. A box of only blue popsicles. A bowl of strawberry Skittles. Only, this bag of chips exists. Thank you snack gods.

Confession. I'm blessed with good hair. As a young girl, friends oohed and aahed while running their fingers through my thick locks. I quickly realized the benefits of good hair -- volume, texture, control, style. I brag, but before anyone passes judgment on my admitted bragging, I'm willing to give up a few secrets - my ultimate tricks of the trade.
Even with good hair, it's vital to know which products work best. I swear by a handful of products, day in and day out. Cross my heart, my hair isn't nearly as ooh and aah worthy without them.
Silky Sexy Hair shampoo and conditioner - Perfect for thick locks. Expect a lather with oomph, a smooth rinse, and a to-die-for scent that converts a shower into a spa session. Plus, the title is just fun to say. SilkySexyHair. Say it three times fast and it becomes a mantra.
Kerastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique - A must have leave-in nourishing heat protectant for any and all flat iron users. Overheating is a kiss of death for perfect hair, and no one likes split ends. No one.
Jonathan Product Dirt Texturizing Paste - Comb through hair ends after drying and straightening. This defines like no other, and is the best friend to choppy long layers.
Hair spray - A product that works perfectly regardless of brand. Word to the wise - please use sparingly. Please. This is not the 1980s, and Aqua Net alone never creates an appropriate look.

Ray Ban Wayfarers - Audrey Hepburn loved them. I adore them. Particularly when used to shield welcomed sunshine at 530pm.
OPI for Sephora Opening Night nail polish - More pizazz than black. Equally as chic.
Scrunched ballet flats - So comfy I could be shoeless. Scrumptious.
Homecomings - Particularly when the city is no longer tolerable. Hello north shore of Massachusetts. Did you miss me?
