Monday Feels

This video. I just can’t. Did you watch the Oscars? Hope this gets your Monday started on the right foot. Trevor Noah and the Daily Show staff crack me up. And Roy Wood Jr. he is just too good.

Sunday Style: Derek Blasberg’s Apartment Makeover

On this rainy (will it ever end this year?!?) East Coast Sunday I thought I would brighten your day with one of the best installations I have seen in a long time. Derek Blasberg’s Upper East Side Apartment Renovation was recently featured in Architectural Digest and I swooned over every detail! Well done Virginia Tupker (we… read more

Health and Wellness: Hormones

The last half decade has been a deep dive on may things, but none more so than health and wellness. As I ventured out of my 30s and into my 40s, I noticed so many emotional, spiritual, and physical changes. While emotionally I felt more strength and conviction in my choices and preferences, on the… read more

Beautycounter for Men

Anyone who knows my chainsaw wielding man, knows that he is far from a metrosexual. For most of our relationship his toiletry kit contained toothpaste, deodorant, and a razor – and washing his face meant a brisk splash of water before bed. Two years ago I discreetly placed a stand up container of face wash… read more

Two Great Reads

I am 4 books into a “great read chain”, having just finished two really different but both excellent books. I first read Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, by Greg McKeown, after a chaotic month of September where I felt like I was a whirling dervish, trying to get too many things done at once…. read more

Favorite Place: Christ Church Books and Gifts

Tucked away under the main building at Christ Church on the Post Road is Christ Church Books and Gifts. I stumbled upon it one day, and to say that it was more than I expected is an understatement. Becky Ford, who has run the store for the last four years, is spectacular. Knowledgable, charming, and pure… read more

Great Resource: Special Education Legal Fund

There is nothing I appreciate more than a woman on a mission. And when that mission is for the betterment of those in need, I like that mission even more. My friend’s Christine Lai and Ulrika Drinkall are the parents of children with special needs. When their sons were diagnosed they wasted no time feeling… read more
