Burn

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 5, 2009

Those who have ever known me, know me for my passion. Or what was sold as passion, but is more than likely something like intensity. A flickering flame, dying and coming. Protesting a darkness. I have burst in and out of my interests with a fury, and then, again, a cooling lull. Transitory, I have chosen my new desires by night and beat them in my blood well into the quaking mornings' light, sleeping well into noon to avoid the sun as it reached up and tickled me, laughing at my new path. In whichever horizon that I set myself towards,... (more)

We will face them with death.

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Sep 26, 2007

Israel has recently declared the Hamas-led Palestinian government, considered by U.S. and the European Union to be terrorist, an "enemy entity (NYTimes.com, September 2007)". Hamas has taken this as a declaration of war: "We will not surrender and we will fight together with our people (NYTimes.com)." Although Jihad groups in Gaza claim responsibility for rocket attacks made on Israeli army bases, Israel holds Hamas accountable for not the preventing attacks. The Islamic Jihad have responded to the increased stronghold on Gaza by Israel: "We have God at our side and God is greather than... (more)

An Epic in Tahquitz

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Sep 20, 2007

The alarm went off at 6AM; I was surprisingly awake. Following a 7AM train ride into Union Station Los Angeles, Mark from RC.com and I met up to commence the 2 1/2 hour drive up into the mountains of Tahquitz. In actuality, the whole trip had started approximately just seven hours ago, when Mark called me with the prospect of a possible day of climbing. Faster than you can put a harness on, we had googled train times and discussed my belaying abilities. After winding our way further up into the mountains, I invested into a helmet and we began the treacherous 3/4 mile almost-completely uphill... (more)

X-Tina: Missed All Her Memos?

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Jan 6, 2007

In an awkward attempt to grow with her fan base, Aguilera has seen us through a series of surprising, even frightening, aliases. Her most recent one seems to be a tribute to the late Marilyn Monroe, complete with the familiar blonde hairstyle and swing series outfits. While it has long become accepted that we may never see a day when Aguilera shows a decent fashion sense, this time it has taken a truly awful turn. But aside from the dangerous mix of gaudy clothes and drag-queen makeup, the artist formerly known as X-Tina may even be hazardous to her health. Aguilera’s tired tresses never... (more)

UGG-Lasting

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 28, 2006

Well ladies and gentlemen, just when we prepare ourselves for a sweet goodbye to an old friend, trends come back again and slaps us fashion mavens with surprise. Just when I thought I would finally see the time in history every designer from Milan to Tokyo has been silently praying for, celebrities have to go and turn the tides once more. Yes sir, you guessed it: UGGs are back. Oh God, are they back. Again. Talk about resilient – the fashion trend is known for its made-to-last sheepskin interior that offers an extra plush instep. Who would have thought that here was a fad durable inside... (more)

You are My Sunshine...

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 22, 2006

...My only sunshine. There is only one true source of light, when it comes to receiving my daily dose of day-glow; that big bulb in the sky. But when life finds me squandered under the deary skies of Chicago, sunshine is a little harder to come by for about nine months out of the year. As Seasonal Affective (or should we say, Defective?) Disorder (SAD) becomes more and more well-known, people are being to recognize the trend between their levels of happiness and the amount of sunshine they receive. Guess that's what makes Los Angeles so dang enticing to us snow birds. Just as soon as Christmas... (more)

Ah, Tis the Season...

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 22, 2006

It was early December in Los Angeles; the weather was 75 degrees and sunny, and the air filled with the distinct feeling of loneliness and surefire distance. Now full-throttle into the Christmas season, it was beginning to feel a lot like New Years, a lot like starting over. My relationship with the man I loved was now officially over, and rather than spend my last night in L.A. holding tightly to his arm and whispering between tragically romantic falling tears my love for him, I was curled up on a bench somewhere in the bowels of the airport. It was 1AM. Having loved and lost before, I... (more)

Bit Tense? Try a Holiday Hopeful

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 21, 2006

It's the holiday season, and I say it with all the loving sentiments I can muster: my family is really stressing me out. While some contributors to BrooWaha.com (check out Glen T's article on vacationing) admit inheriting some strange-but-quickly-spreading gene that discourages relaxation, this journalist feels like she's acquired somewhere a healthy dose of both work and “chilling”. That is, until the holidays arrive and I'm shoved back into a whirlwind of arguing parentals and other mindless albeit stressful situations that, anyone besides my parents can surely see, really don't matter... (more)

Nothin' Wrong with a Little Imperfection

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 21, 2006

As a young, sophisticated, sexy (can I say that?) career woman of the 21st century, I have long surpassed the days of wishing I was someone else. No longer do I gaze wistfully at a leggy blond, hating her for an exciting lifestyle I secretly envy. And if you believe that load of crock, then maybe there still is hope, and Brad and Jen are renewing their vows right now. I'll admit it. Heck, I'd even admit it for all women alike if they'd let me tell their secrets. I dress to impress. And more often than not, it's the women whose mouths I want to drop, not men's. I'm not gay – I'm just a... (more)

Find of the Week: Concealer as Foundation??

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 20, 2006

Product: MAC's Select Moisturecover Concealer in "Cache" A recent trip into the city of Chicago found me scurrying along the sidewalk amongst the hundreds of other weekend window shoppers, waiting for my friends to call and take me from this crazy whirlwind into a much safer (and warmer) flat. Determined to use the time as wisely as a young fashionista could possibly do, I headed into the inviting elements of Macy's (previously known as the infamous Marshall Field's), after diving past tourists admiring the window displays as if there were finely spun chocolatiers inside. Once safely past... (more)
