has had cameras following her every move and cutesy glance from ages 18 to 22. It sure looked like she would be continuing the trend when she announced in December
that she would be shooting a new reality series for MTV, this time focusing on her fashion moguling. But apparently, MTV has nixed the show. “MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life,” Lauren said. “Sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.” Which is code for: no you cannot film me and my boyfriend bickering over the merits of crunchy versus creamy peanut butter.

Mother and daughter duo Valerie and Camilla started their blog, A Butterfly by Day, two years ago after cleaning out a storage closet filled with designer pieces they had once worn. “Going through the closet and trying on the clothes with Camilla, we decided to document them on a blog,” explains Valerie. “After that, a collaboration between us was born.” The pair create style shoots influenced by both fashion and the art world, and feel that “the mix of generations collaborating as one and inspiring each other was unique to us.” Check out some of this awesome twosome’s favorite things after the jump!

This weekend, I was running errands in my neighborhood when I bumped into someone I slept with in the last year. (Narrows it down, doesn’t it? Ha!) Immediately, I felt overwhelmingly flustered. In fact, I may have spoken some form of gibberish. After exchanging pleasantries — his sensical, mine, not so much — we went our separate ways, but I found myself weirdly shaken up. It was the sort of thing that I would have previously associated as a sign that I had romantic feelings for that person; my shaky hands an indicator of nervous sexual energy, and the vague nausea in my stomach would have been called “butterflies.” I would have relished that feeling, called it “thrilling.” Wondered when I would see that person in a naked capacity again and, Oh! Did he feel it too? Ah, the mystery. Isn’t that what makes romance so exciting?
