Amazing Art: Dr. Propolus

I was a serious “doodler” as a child. Even now if I am on a long call, or stuck in a meeting, I find myself scribbling away on a scrap of paper or my notes. I had to chuckle when I caught my 8 year old practicing her initials in cursive all over her homework… read more

Watch: The Night Of

After binge-watching 5 seasons of Homeland last winter, and then breezing through season 1 of Millions this fall, I was eager to find our next “fix”. Dear friends had recently become obsessed with the new HBO series The Night Of so we decided to give it a try. Can you say hooked? I must warn you, it’s… read more

Amazing Art: Alberto Seveso

One look and I was hooked. The liquid photography created by Italian-born Alberto Seveso is absolutely gorgeous. He achieves this visual phenomenon with a technique of mixing ink with metallic powders and suspending them in liquid. I’ll take one in every color.  

Great Event: The Greenwich International Film Festival

I recently listened to a fascinating podcast about the importance of creativity, and how it is an integral trait that brings joy and fulfillment to our lives when we use it. Many dismiss this idea with an off-handed, “But I’m just not a creative person.” When we dismiss the idea of being creative, we neglect to… read more

Powerful Video: Saying Thanks

No words for this one. Just needed to share because it’s true that no one makes it through this life alone. x https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwKyauE_l-k

Good Videos: Comfortable

I’ve been shuffling around the web looking for video inspiration as I work on a few new projects over at Pless Productions. I came across this sweet video called “Comfortable”. It’s made by a group called the Jubilee Project. I think it’s a really good one. The message is spot on. I’ve been thinking a lot… read more

Film: Trainwreck

Is it Oscar material? Probably not. Is the cinematography up there with that of A River Runs Through It? I don’t think so. Would you ever want to watch this in the presence of your parents? Absolutely not. But is it hysterically laugh-out-loud, pee-in-your-pants funny? YES! I didn’t know who Amy Schumer was before I… read more

Great Movie: Spy

It’s the holidays people. Sadly that can mean some serious stress. The gifting, the cooking, the travel, the mess… I find that a good laugh is often the best remedy for all the mayhem and emotions that boil to the surface between Thanksgiving and Christmas. After a friend recommended my husband and I watch Spy,… read more

See: Cyber Seniors

This documentary called Cyber-Seniors looks absolutely precious! I love the idea of bridging the gap between the oldest living generation and our tech-addicted younger one. There is something so funny and refreshing about the candid admissions made by these seniors about not knowing how to use current technology. The trailer (attached) is well worth watching… read more

Great Business: Candyshop Photography

If you have been following along for some time you know that I am obsessed with photos. Especially those of children. By far one of my favorite photographers in the area is Charisse Czaja. Her photos are stunning! Add that pure talent on top of her being a spectacular person (Superhero Among us ALERT!) and I’m… read more
