Real life is a funny thing, you know. In real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. So crucial, in fact, that most of us start to hesitate, for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I’ve begun to fear more that that is letting the moment pass without saying anything. I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life, and looking back, regretting the moments we didn’t speak up. When we didn’t say “I love you.” When we should’ve said “I’m sorry.” When we didn’t stand up for ourselves or some one who needed help.
I’ve found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn’t mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I’ve just added more things to my list.
I think the media has sent me a really unfair message over the past couple of years, which is that I’m not allowed to date for excitement, or fun, or new experiences or learning lessons. I’m only allowed to date if it’s for a lasting, multiple-year relationship. Otherwise I’m a, quote, ‘serial dater’. Or, quote, ‘boy crazy’.

Best Celebrity - Emma Roberts nailed it with this dress, perfectly suited for photo-ops on the colorful red carpet.
Best View - New Jersey’s Liberty State Park affords the most spectacular view of the NYC skyline.
Best Hat - The pops of color on this spectator’s floppy brimmed hat is so on point with the garden party theme of the Veuve Clicquot decor.
Best Tent Transformation - The lush greenery and vibrant door transform this tent into a beautiful (and bubbly) oasis.
Best Dressed - There’s just an understated elegance about this columnar white on white ensemble that perfectly complements the NYC skyline and the pops of color around the field… and gets our nod for best dressed of the day.
