A Day In LA: Darling Magazine Valentines Event

hello. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and were reminded of that little thing that makes the world go round: love. But, who says Valentines Day is only for the monogamous lovebirds?

The Selfie Phenomenon

I had this strange thought the other day, regarding the whole Selfie phenomenon; many of our future grandchildren {if they so happen to exist} will have quite the collection of Selfies…Selfies of their grandparents (could you imagine?)…and then I thought— what I would do for some vintage Selfies of my grandparents—feelin’ themselves, all ready for a…
