The Common Cold From Hell

For most of the last week I have been sick. And I mean, I have BEEN sick. I’m not currently sick, I’m currently in Tokyo not allowing myself to be sick. But, this is what got me from there to here, besides the plane.  (more…)

The Holiday Pre-game Party Look

At the ripe old age of not in my twenties, I still enjoy a good pre-game celebration-party-dance-drinks… It sets the pace. The pre-game either knocks you out before you leave (which is useful, better to be knocked out at home or a friend’s couch than at the bar) or it gets you energized to seize the night full of opportunities for run-around-sue-fun.

A White Christmas Playlist for Beyoncé

Behind the Mirror in Snow


A couple things happened this week. For starters, a woman named Beyoncé pulled some serious tricks out of her hat.

Winter Body Ready

As New Yorkers we talk a lot about the joy it brings us to get out of the city. Mostly, in an effort to “relax.” Because yes, we have to completely leave our homes and city to “relax.” Where most people can light a fire and have a cup of tea, New Yorkers need to get out of the city any chance they get. It pretty much goes like this every time.  (more…)

Gift Guide: Let the Countdown Begin

Baby, it’s cold outside. And dark.

Do you know that today it was dark in NYC at 4:32? Perhaps, that isn’t what google will tell you, but I saw it out the window from my very small, cube like desk… darkness. Let me be clear, that is not what I meant when I said daylight savings night was my favorite holiday. Thank God for the 8 day festival of lights, (my new favorite holiday, just kidding it is still daylight saving night when I get an extra hour to sleep) otherwise it would have been seriously dark up in here. This debaclery does nothing but make one forgetful and tired. But alas, I have not forgotten what I said I would do. Since I try to be a woman of my word, and since I said “as often as I can I will suggest some items that have double the give back value.

We can do that now…  (more…)
