Quoteworthy: Helen Gurley Brown 1922-2012


Helen Gurley Brown was one of the few women I remember studying in journalism school. She was truly a pioneer in her field and well ahead of her time. She will be remembered for her wit and wisdom.



“The message was: So you're single. You can still have sex. You can have a great life. And if you marry, don't just sponge off a man or be the gold-medal-winning mother. Don't use men to get what you want in life -  get it for yourself.”










Now Playing: "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac
*All-time fav! The Deep Dish remix is also brilliant!

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
