While most of the country has been experiencing a heat wave, things have been very up and down in New York and even in Sag Harbor, where I spent last week. I feel like I have to have three seasons of clothing on hand at any given time. But at least there are some good […]

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Platinum Jubilee celebrations have been taking place across London to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne. It’s been fun to watch the coverage on tv and from my friends on Instagram. I might be going to London in early July so I’ve been taking lots […]

Guess who’s back? Thank you for being so understanding of my pause in posts. In the 15 years of blogging, I’ve never taken such a long break but I was still posting almost 100 Instagram Stories each day of my month in Paris so I didn’t take a complete break and I hope that you […]

The recent cold snap in New York is having a devastating effect on the spring buds and blooms. I’m afraid this might not be the prettiest or mildest spring so I’ve put together a lot of things to do and watch inside until it fully warms up. If you are a member at The Metropolitan […]

Spring has finally arrived but that means beautiful sunny weather mixed with cold and rainy days. We’ve got you covered if you want to be out and about or hunkered down at home with something to watch or read this weekend. Filmmaker Sofia Coppola doesn’t seem to grant many interviews so I was excited to […]

While it feels like world is about to end there are a few good things happening this month. In addition to new exhibitions, shows to binge, and clothes to buy, the US returns to Daylight Saving Time which means it will stay light out later and hopefully make everyone feel a little better. Also, I’ve […]

It snowed this morning in New York as you can see from the photo from Manhattan Bird Alert above. It looks pretty but makes taking walks and dining outside very difficult at the moment. I was very gung-ho to start this New Year but I already feel a bit uninspired and unmotivated. I found last […]

My final gift guide was delayed due to travel and holiday events. And also because of those events last week, I’m now at home nursing a cold. It’s the first time I’ve been sick since 2018 so I guess I was due. (I know it’s not Covid because I took a test.) If you haven’t […]

Thank you for all the great feedback on my first two holiday gift guides. I’m sorry some things have already sold out but we’ve put together more than 40 new gift suggestions that are currently in stock that I think your friends and family will love. I love to start each of my gift guides […]

Central Park is finally at peak leaf peeping season and could not look more beautiful, as you can see from my photo above, and events are back in full swing. Here’s what’s new and noteworthy in the city and beyond. Salon Art + Design which features over 50 of the world’s most influential galleries in art, architecture, and design […]

I found so many great gift options I couldn’t fit them all in my first gift guide so I decided to post my second gift guide this week too. As we know, there could be shipping delays and supply chain issues, it’s best to shop early for everyone on your list. Do you have a […]

I started working on this post on Thursday and kept getting sidetracked. But I wanted to finally get it up today so you can know about all the exciting time sensitive things happening online and in the real world. There are some great exhibitions on view now and coming up, as well as, new books […]

Summer is not my season so I’m been working on a lot of projects (the reason for the radio silence) and biding my time until fall. I do have to say that the city is looking lush and beautiful though. I love all the green and white plantings I saw on Fifth Avenue Friday. There […]

I love to watch tennis, especially Wimbledon. I love the history and the old school elegance of the All England Club. But I’m a terrible player so my friend Eleanor Banco Lasko, who is an amazing tennis player and competitor, has graciously helped me put this post together. We’ve been working on it since the […]

Last year felt like it crawled by at a snail’s pace while this year is flying by. I can’t believe it will be July next week. If you’re coming to the city or just looking for new things to see and do, I’ve got you covered. This week, I attended the Member Preview for The […]

Father’s Day feels more exciting this year as families can gather together again. To make sure you don’t arrive empty handed, I’ve put together over 40 presents perfect for dads of all ages including my friend Howie Guja above who was recently featured on Ralph Lauren. Does the dad in your life love films and […]

Tulip season is over in New York and the city is now lush and green. Traffic is back too which is a sure sign the city is back to normal. It’s going to be a bit chilly and rainy here this weekend which makes it perfect for watching a new show or movie if you’re […]
