California Mermaid Adventures: Day Three

“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” ~ John F. Kennedy  Day three dawned bright and warm in North Beach. With temps approaching seventy it was the perfect day for a mermaid adventure which just so ….

Golden Sunrise, Exploring the Golden City: Day Two

“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” ~ Lao Tzu  Day two was equally magical if not perhaps channeling our slight inner insanity, as we chose to wake up before the sun, hopping on a bus just outside my aunt’s apartment to take us to the Golden Gate Bridge. The last time I was ….

Leaving On A Jet Plane….

And I don’t know when I will be back again….  I seriously love that song. Of course my type A personality means I DID know when I would be back, but still the sentiment and excitement of travel was very definitively present. Sunday morning, my partner in crime, fellow jet setter and blonde fashionista and I got up before it ….

Where in The World Has Kate Been?

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” ~ Confucius  Bonus point is if you recognized my ode to nineties cartoons. If you did not, never mind…I just dated myself horribly!

The much awaited tote made of the same material as her clutches and wristlets. I have already written ….

Last Recap Before My Big Trip!

“To travel is to take a journey into yourself.” ~ Danny Kaye I thought I would do a quick update, before my wanderlusting begins! Unfortunately I have still been recovering from the mother of all creeping crud stomach bugs. Nourishment has been minimal and while I am keeping a sense of humor about it (Great pre-Cali diet) it has been ….


“Happiness can exist only in acceptance.” ~ George Orwell Half way through yoga class, I had a revelation. It wasn’t earth shattering as far as discovering a cure for cancer, but it was something we all need a reminder of from time to time. And of course contorting your body into torture-asana is the perfect place for such a moment ….

Spring Days in Brooklyn Take Two

“My favorite thing about New York is the view, the skyline.” ~ Jack Reynor Spring in February and I am in love! Seriously. To be given the chance to shed my heavy winter coat for a lighter one. To actually be fashionable and not freeze my digits off, and go exploring this beautiful city, without having icicles form on my ….
