Something that may not be obvious about me is I love hip hop! Love it. I love rap. I find it to require a huge amount of talent. It’s clever and fun. I love Eminem, I really love Snoop Dogg. Then there’s Nicki Minaj, A$AP Rocky, Tupac, Iggy Azalea, Lauryn Hill, I could go on forever. I know the way some of them speak about women is wrong. Consider it a guilty pleasure. (more…)
I am a big fan of a good natural disaster. Not so much the ones that destroy people’s lives, but the ones that turn out to not be such a big deal. Like the way #Juno has affected me in New York City. My favorite thing to do on a snow day is nothing. Sit back, relax, make some tea, and watch Netflix.
Recently, I was given Kusmi Beauty Beverage Detox tea. This wonderful gift was brought to me by my friend Alienor all the way from Paris. I’ve since learned it’s widely available at most upscale grocery stores. Lately, I’ve been wanting to get more into tea. On our road trip down highway 1 we met a friend at an Asian (I think it was Tibetan) tea shop in Santa Cruz. It was the most amazing experience. The three of us shared kung fu tea over a beautiful draining table. I found the entire ritual so enchanting. Our friend poured some out over a frog for prosperity and we had a lovely afternoon together. It was nice to slow down for a minute with such a beautiful tradition. For thousands of years humans have relied on this little leaf for its ability to give us fresh perspective, a minute to reset. Amiram travels to China quite often. During his last trip, he was given this tea set. Since then, I’ve been dying to use it. Finally, a snow day! (more…)
It is certainly no secret that I do not enjoy exercise. Lately, I have been making more of an effort, partially because I am planning a trip to see my most fit friend, Julie, the end of June. (more…)
This week is going great for me… I physically removed myself from the city last weekend to ensure I would be celebrating the men and women who served our country
in the sun, I am sure that is what they would have wanted… and I am also sure that is the best way to spend a long weekend. (more…)
