Summer's Last Licks

Summer's Last Licks
Wait, what? How can summer almost be over?? By way of protest, I am spraying just the right amount of sea, salt and gold onto my hair. That should do it.

Captian Blankenship Golden Waves Sea Salt Shimmer Spray, $28 (pretty reasonable in exchange for a few extra weeks of summer)

Summertime Routine

Summertime Routine

Scrubbing with French Girl Sea Polish after exercising in the summer, is one of the best feelings you could possibly treat yourself to. You know when you can't stop sweating, even after a shower? It does the trick! Like brushing your teeth, on your whole body. 

Life Lessons: Roller skating

Life Lessons: Roller skating

This past rainy weekend my ten year old and I went roller skating at the extremely fun Brooklyn Bridge Park roller skating rink. (Highly recommended for tourists and residents alike.) She has skated before so I was surprised to see her clutching the wall and only looking down at her feet - a slow, m ...

Glow from within

You know that breathtaking feeling when you see a color that can only occur in nature? The glow of the sky just past dusk, the crazy oil slick colors in beetle’s wings, the magical depth of flower petals - colors that are rich, vivid, elemental. They glow from within. And you think t ...

Wow. Kelly Framel (aka The Glamourai) takes styling to a whole new level in this shoot. Those eyebrows, the cornrows, the flash tattoos. I am awestruck.

Happy Early Summer Weekend!!

Happy Early Summer Weekend!!

Before our fair city acquires her very, er... distinctive summer fragrance, she is bathed in the most delightful scent of Linden trees. Right now - very early summer - the smell is everywhere and I find myself deeply inhaling it. This season is sweet, yet oh-so-short, and needs to be appreciated at ...

Garance Doré has the most lovely article on her blog this week. I highly recommend it. Have a look:... it’s also very cool to just love your job as it is, to love the place where you live, and the world you’ve created for yourself, whatever that may be. It’s cool to jus ...
