Gift Giving 101- A List in Two Parts

1. Never give someone a gift that you know you want but don’t know if they want 2. Always wrap presents. The plastic bag is not funny, cute or a moment of humor. It is offensive and indicitive of how much you gave a crap about the person’s present. 3. Never wait till the last […]

I love a parade!

It’s warm in New York again and the cold, snowy winter is just a faint memory now. It is funny how NYers or any cold climate dweller can quickly forget the nature of the beast that is winter. Anyway with the warm weather comes the festivals, feasts and parades  I am a huge parade junkie […]

Some Kind of Wonderful..

My dad loves the horses. He is a horse-racing junkie. He lives and dies by the charts. The Kentucky Derby was a huge upset and the Preakness saw a favorite top the board so on comes the Belmont stakes. We live within about 20 minutes form Belmont so of course he will be attending and […]

What about the chocolate?

I had to stop what I was doing to shoot off a post because what I just experienced was amazing. The boy and I are big fans of chocolate (shocking, I know!). We have hit up the M&M store in Manhattan like a couple of 4 year old kid, We’ve eaten the Godiva and the […]

I don’t believe in sports, I just believe in love..

I’m a pretty straight-forward, traditional, stereotypical girlie-girly. I exercise because you are supposed to, I drink Cosmopolitans and Malibu Bay Breezes, and I love shopping and watching romantic comedies, I don’t like to sweat and I prefer the wonder of a hotel suite to a camping trip. I am what the “girlie-girl” was based on […]

The Wonder of the Voicemail..

Okay, so I know it’s a bit of an odd title but I got to thinking today about the wonder of the voicemail. Today while I was working on a rather intensive project my cell phone began ringing. I sent it to voicemail, about ten minutes later the same thing happened and I did the […]

Knickknacks, Bric-a-brac, Dust Collectors….

Don’t be afraid to admit it, you love knickknacks. While many, many people insist they don’t like dust collectors. Even the ultra-modern hipsters have them. We have just replaced the accouterments of old lady chic and put a technological and young spin on them. Here is the thing; you can’t live a life without ever […]

Confessions of a Picture Junkie- Part II

I’ve already mentioned that I’m a massive picture junkie. I take pictures of everything and because of that I am a multiple camera owner. I have the digital point and shoot which is in my purse on a daily basis. I have the DSLR because I love to spend money on stuff I don’t need. […]

Call me crazy…

I’m one of those rare creatures who does not beleive in the personalized gift. Please never send me anything with my name on it. I cringe when I see high school students walking around with monogrammed backpacks. I recoil in horror when I see women with initialed tote bags and I’m disturbed when I catch […]

Attack of the 50-foot Diaper Cake

A few months ago I wrote an article about how to make a diaper cake. I’m not particularly proud of having written something of that nature, but the bills have to get paid. For all of you lucky enough to not be in the know a diaper cake is exactly what it sounds like. It […]
