Halloween In The City

“Some people are born for Halloween, and some are just counting the days until Christmas.” ~ Stephen Graham Jones Christmas-Ween This quote speaks to be on a spiritual level. In fact they probably meant me when they wrote this. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Halloween. I use to love dressing up as any and all Disney princesses ….

Wanderlusting: Pumpkin Picking

“When the seasons shift, even the subtle beginning, the scent of a promised change, I feel something stir inside me. Hopefulness? Gratitude? Openness? Whatever it is, it’s welcome.” ~ Kristin Armstrong  Where are you Autumn? (Why can’t I find thee?) To soon? Bonus points if you know what song I just quoted changed. While Autumn is taking the slow meandering ….

What DO I Wear?!?! The Shirtdress Fall Staple

They never date, and you can put them with a heel or a flat sandal.” ~ Louise Nurding Channeling Fall Vibes With only glimpses of Fall every so often, unless you go to Trader Joe’s where it has literally vomited all the pumpkin your heart can desire, the struggle is real attempting to ….

Wanderlusting: The Rink at Rock Center

“Skating has given me so much that it’s priceless.” ~ Michelle Kwan Festive Time of Year While Mother Nature has decided to keep her hot flashes going, that has not stopped the city from getting into the spirit and preparing for when Jack Frost will finally swoop in and freeze us all out. This really is one of my favorite ….

Bloggers Weekend: Deuxième Partie

“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” ~ Thomas Aquinas I am still smiling from this past weekend. It really was one for the books and made my heart so full of happiness, love, and friendship. Not only did I get to meet Sarah from lifewithlilred, but I also got to meet Jenny from ….

AnkhorRed: A Blogger’s Weekend

“The world is round so that friendship may encircle it.” ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Bloggers Weekend I can not even begin to describe how epic this past weekend was.

What DO I Wear?!?! Apple Picking Couture

“Designers want me to dress like Spring, in billowing things. I don’t feel like Spring. I feel like a warm red Autumn.” ~ Marilyn Monroe Fall Fashion Guys it finally FINALLY feels like Fall. (okay I am getting ahead of myself because it went back to the eighties this week, but beggars can not be choosers and I am definitely ….

Wanderluster of Wanderlusting: Ikea

“I look at every piece of furniture and every object as an individual sculpture.” ~ Kelly Wearstler Ikea Okay I might be being a tad sarcastic. But if you live in New York (or pretty much ANY city) you probably own something from Ikea. In fact it is an apartment staple. Going to the warehouse like store, which is so ….

School of Rock: The Musical

“Where did the rock go? Where’s the rush of those electric guitars? Where are all those voices raised in heaven, Blazing down like shooting stars?” ~ School of Rock   Tradition  Every year around my sister’s anniversary and birthday, I go to a Broadway show. After she was killed I wanted a way to honor her and I knew she ….
