Soap & Glory: Pretty Scents Edition

In the midst of all of my Christmas shopping a few months back, I picked up this Soap & Glory bath and body gift set. It was on sale at a drug store (Walgreens, CVS or Rite Aid–I can’t remember which one) and the sweetest salesperson had a table set up, she was dressed in…

Do You Own or Rent?

Super personal question, right? There is a clear and definite answer to the question and most people buy or rent for specific purposes. Many of us can’t afford to buy and many of us can’t afford to rent! There is a play on words there. I’ve met plenty of renters who often say that the…

Statement Coat: Do Something Different

Mixing the old and the new, high and the low is essential in building style. No one should be wrapped in one bran or one trend. It makes for a look that does not strike interesting or feel authentic. I love a mix of textures and prints. I am a sucker for wearing all thing…

Art On My Wall: Basquiat

What better was to spend a sleepy Sunday than to visit the magical Brooklyn Museum of Art. The building is truly this majestic place right in the middle of the Prospect Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn. If you have to walk, run or jog, please do get there to catch the “One Basquiat” show currently on…

Style Fashion Week: Cipriani

  It’s New York Fashion Week and all of New York City (I exaggerate, not all of New York City) is enjoying the scenes, the festivities and the shows. I am not a fashionista and not invited to most shows and I rely on the recap done by the New York Times for my season looks…

Sensational Saturday: L Train Vintage Furs

I’m driving through Williamsburg, Brooklyn and could not help but stop into one of my favorite vintage stores. I’ve been trying to find a teddy bear coat or fur coat because they are on trend. I tend to follow trends, not to the extreme, but add maybe one piece that is on trend at the…

Photo Walk: Apple Store Downtown Brooklyn

It’s Saturday, 2:30pm and 50 degrees in January, in a usually blistery Brooklyn, NY. The warm weather really brings the entire borough out. It’s a great time to vibe, walk and really take in all of the great sights (architecture, colors, flavors) and sounds of Brooklyn. That is exactly what we did a bit of…

Saturday Night Lights: Stewart Hotel NYC

Is there anything better than spending a Saturday night in NYC? Face it. The answer is, “no.”  I had the opportunity to spend a Saturday night in a fantastic hotel opposite Madison Square Garden at the stylishly chic Stewart Hotel recently. First off, you enter the lobby and feel like you’ve been transported to sunny…

Sunday Brunch: Goop Edition

I find it absolutely amazing that actress, Gwyneth Paltrow had the vision to start a lifestyle website/blog years ago and turned it into a multi-million dollar empire. I have been a fan of Goop for years, since it’s inception actually, and have watched the site grow from some recipes and lifestyle pictures to a world…

Hudson Hotel: NYC Staycation

There is nothing I love more than an overnight stay in Manhattan. As a Brooklynite, Manhattan is a stones throw from home but it seems worlds away from Brooklyn. Well, truthfully, Brooklyn now feels like the new Manhattan. I still enjoy the respite. Maybe I just like waking up in a new space. A new…
