ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE + COLOR | Proof you don’t need props to rock a killer shoot. Plus, *One Fedora Per Crew* rule, The Bachelorette, and OUR GIVEAWAY WINNER!

You’re probably expecting me to wax concussed on the topic of last night’s Bachelorette episode.  And believe me, I want nothing more than to flippantly mock the ins and outs of reality television right now, because anything’s better than thinking about the fact that Bambino is getting his balls chopped off tomorrow.  But friends, I [...]

Like WHOA.  You guys, I’m sitting in my chair, with Bambino wanting ups, me ignoring his repeated requests for ups, and Bambino releasing aggressive fart bombs immediately beneath me in retribution.  Why am I unable to enjoy his sweet, adorable overtures?  Because I’m still in awe over what just happened.  And that’s saying A LOT, [...]

REAL BOUDOIR | One hot to trot bicoastal girl shows us the *right way* to rock boudoir. Also, I stand corrected.

Because I like to consider TKB an institution on par with such esteemed news reporting outlets as the Nightly News with Brian Williams, The New York Times and of course Fox News, I would, in kind, like to note an error in yesterday’s broadcast (translation: blog post; just broadcast sounds cooler): Yesterday, I quoted Bentley [...]

RUFFLES, LOVE & FRUSTRATION | Something I like, something I hate, and McPuppyPants does an impression. So in other words, business as usual.

Today, I’ve got to talk about something I feel pretty strongly about.  (And I’m gonna want to know if I’m alone in this feeling.)  Coupled, of course, with fashion, photography, pop culture and general wedding-related thingies.  So, a mixed bag. :) Ok, SO.  Have you heard?

REAL WEDDING | A hail storm tried, and failed, to stop this wedding. In your FACE, Mother Nature. + Bambino :)

So, it’s Monday afternoon and I think it’s appropriate, first and foremost, to thank those of you who so kindly and perhaps a bit absent-mindedly predicted that I’d be raptured.  That was sweet of you, and I’m glad you think I’m angelic enough to go north instead of south.  To those of you who figured [...]
