I think New York is a good place to write in general because it’s a grid. It’s organized. You know where you are on the map. That centers you, and your imagination is perhaps freer to roam. ~Alex Turner When you live in a city it is hard to play tourist. If people gave me money for the amount ….
A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting. ~ Christian Dior In true Gemini form I have many personalities, calm, crazy, bookish, sensual, nun-like, adventurous. I am a walking book of dualities. While fashion can emulate that, from yoga chic to old Hollywood glamour, it is my perfume that resonates the true depths of my emotion. From fruity ….
A friend asked me a couple months ago on my Instagram page who my private photographer was. I laughed, and albeit a bit sarcastically replied “The world.” I might have been being facetious when I said it in the moment, but the more I thought about it, the more accurate a statement it was. While it is true I love ….
Walking down the blocks in my Upper East side neighborhood, the sun kissing my face with its warm rays. People walking to work, running errands. They are living. New Yorkers understand fear. We also have no problem looking it in the face and kicking it in the arse. We are resilient that way. So are Paris, and London and Spain ….
The devastation I first felt and continue to feel this morning is indescribable as I turned on the news expecting weather and kittens and instead discovered another attack had occurred, this time in Brussels. Once again people were doing everyday things. Grabbing their coffee fix before traveling. Waiting to greet loved ones. Living life. Doing what most of us do ….
I looked at my pics again and again oohing and aaahing over them with my friend. We had gotten up at an hour that should have been made illegal. Shooting photo after photo as the sun rose bathing us in dizzying light as we had an impromptu photoshoot. I had not noticed the green dots on over half of my ….
One of the things I love the most about the city, is the quiet mornings. In the city that never sleeps (allegedly) The dawning hours of the sun, are the most serene. The hustle and bustle and the craziness of the streets fall silent. It is a time I savor the most. Where I will wake up and go for ….
I once had someone tell me you couldn’t get dressed up “around here.” By here being in New Hampshire and Maine. It was a tad insulting, as she stared at my Tory Burch shoes, White House Black Market jeans, and coordinated shirt jacket and scarf, all from Anthro. She left off the fact I didn’t belong in my hometown, but ….
You might think that love will conquer all, but it doesn’t. Hard work does. Kim K and Beyonce did not make the derriere cool, we can thank Da Vinci and Michangelo for that. Acquaintances are fleeting, friendship leaves a lasting imprint on your heart. So does love, whether good, or really really shitty. Siblings are the first friends you will ever ….
It started with a like and it was love at first Instagram pic. Sometimes fate has an interesting way of matching people up. In this instance a sea glass junkie consumer with a sea glass jewelry designer. A perfect fit! I love jewelry. It is the one accessory, whether it be bracelets, necklaces earrings, rings, – anything that falls into ….
