I am a fan of hers and it inspired me to write this post about my illness, which many of you know about. There is nothing chic or glamorous about this post, just real talk. I hope I do… Read More Post: My Not so Perfect Life !
One of my favorite winter events is the annual Holiday House Design Show in Manhattan’s Academy Mansion. They feature top-notch interior designers and the proceeds go to fight breast cancer. This year, I visited with friends, and then returned 24 hours later, to the Holiday House NYC, for a photo shoot featuring Robin Baron Design… Read More Holiday House NYC- Decorating for a Cure
Hello Loves! I enjoyed two Thanksgiving dinners this year! The first you saw earlier this week was in my sister-in-law’s red dining room. This second one, prepared by my sister, was very special too.

Ah, Summer in the city! (and weekends in the Hamptons! )
This outfit is even sweeter, as much of it is second hand!
BEAUTY: I AM CAPTIVATED AND MOVED BY IT. WHETHER IT IS A BARELY DISCERNIBLE BRUSH STOKE ON A CANVAS, A PEWTER SLICE OF MOON- PUNCTUATING AN OTHERWISE MATTE, EBONY SKY, OR THE REFLECTION OF GOLDENRODS AGAINST A FRESH, SHIMMERING POND. I LOVE EACH DETAIL. SUCH IT WAS AT PESTANA PALACE, A REAL-LIFE,… Read More Pestana Palace: Old World Luxe in Lisboa
Porto continues to be compelling. The architecture, vistas, gardens and cobblestone streets are enchanting. Donning my new favorite sneakers, I am ready to brave the rocky streets and hilly terrain. My new circle bag, and little messenger, bought here in Porto for 30 USD for both. I also got my new blue shirt, with the… Read More Porto, Portugal : Still Abroad
