Snowshoeing Through Crawford Notch

“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” ~ Albert Camus The Cold Never Stopped me Anyway  The sub-zero temps and the creeping crud were not going to stop me from soaking in the beauty of the White Mountains. As much as I love the Concrete Jungle, it is called that for ….

Wanderlusting: New York Highline

“My art is an attempt to reach beyond the surface appearance. I want to see growth in wood, time in stone, nature in a city, and I do not mean its parks but a deeper understanding that a city is nature too-the ground upon which it is built, the stone with which it is made.” ~ Andy Goldsworthy Tourism in ….

What DO I Wear?!?! The Leather Pant

“People don’t need to feel scared about a leather pant. Think of it as a jean alternative: it’s the same thing. It’s almost like they’re your yoga pants, but they look chic.” ~ Meghan Markle Fashion Must Have  There is ONE wardrobe staple, every woman (and man if you are a rockstar) needs during the Winter, Fall, Spring and maybe ….

Amazing Customer Service: Apple

“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R & D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R & D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.” ~ Steve Jobs Apple I promise you this ….

Highs and Lows: Moments of Truth

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~ Buddha The guise of social media  Social media is great at painting the guise of  the picture perfect.

A Little Recap: First Week of 2018

“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” ~ Charles R. Swindoll On the verge of jinxing myself, (again) Ladies and Gentlemen, (I think) I am back in business! That is right! I have my precious Svetlana back. It has been one hell of a week. But before I get to THAT. Let me ….

Computer Lamentations

Hello Dear Readers! I know! I know! I have been radio silent and just a tad (okay a lot!) flighty about posting, commenting, responding and just all around communication. Feel free to break-up with me, because I have been slacking in the most important part of a relationship! But I swear! I pinky promise! I have a great, albeit muse ….

What DO I Wear!?!? Tanya-B

“Like the snail whose garment is an integral component of his body…” ~ Zalman As a yogi and pretty athletic lady, finding clothes that are not only comfy and move with my body but also fashionable and versatile from studio to street can be hard to find. //Hat and skirt: Anthropologie // Sunglasses: Tory Burch //Shirt: Tanya-B// Thankfully I know some ….

Wanderlusting in the Snow on a Snow Day

“And finally Winter, with its bitin’, whinin’ wind, and all the land will be mantled with snow.” ~ Roy Bean Snow, Snow, where art thou? Not going to lie, I was a little bitter a couple weeks ago, when it snowed in New York and I was in Vermont and got nada. Zip. None of the fluffy white stuff! With ….

Top O’ The Rock to You

“The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.” ~  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow City Heights  I have been to the top of the Empire Building four times, now. All at night and while the darkness hides some of the height and the buildings twinkle ….
