Major downer alert: Over 1.7 million kids die each year from illnesses that could be prevented simply by washing their hands with soap. That makes me feel like this. But major upper alert! There are wonderful people in the world working to do something about that. One of them is my lovely friend, Mera McGrew, […]

Haramara_Pool_2-1200x800

I’ve always wanted to go on a yoga retreat, so when my mom called and asked if I wanted to join her next summer for a week of yoga, spa treatments, and organic meals at Haramara Retreat in Mexico, I said, “Um, yeah, I think I can swing that.” Described as a place “where Robinson Crusoe […]

I’ve always wanted to try biking in NYC. But I also want to live. And I’m not sure the two can coexist. However, the recent arrival of Citi Bikes to New York has tempted me to throw caution to the wind and start pedaling away with abandon. (Maybe even without a helmet! Gasp!) I mean, everyone’s […]

Give me a buzz(feed) sometime

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love dogs. Like, in a way that kind of borders on unhealthy. Hanging out with these dogs in Moncler jackets all day is my idea of heaven. So it should come as no surprise that when I learned that ANYONE CAN POST ON […]

Back in States, back on Wagon

After a year in Argentina, much of which was spent consuming steak, cheese, wine, and dulce de leche filled/covered pastries, I have returned to the States, well aware that these habits cannot continue. Sadly, I can no longer consider a leisurely stroll a sufficient cardiovascular activity. Especially when said leisurely stroll ends at a bakery. […]

Another members-only sample-sale site?   GET OUTTA TOWN.  Because everyone and their mother isn’t hopping on that bandwagon (which, by the way, is the best bandwagon EVER).  Anyway.  Mintbox is a website that offers members access to private sales and events, style advice from designers and stylists, AND 5% cash back on every purchase.   Unlike most sample sales […]

Gifts that Give Back

Spend away! Feel no shame!  All of these gifts benefit someone less fortunate than you.  Yeah, YOU.  Plus, you get a tax break.  That’s probably not true at all.  I don’t even know what that means.  Gucci, coin purse with snowman and elephant print, $205 25% of the profits benefit UNICEF   Gucci, ‘joy’ medium boston […]

So I was blasting my pecs at the gym the other day…

Just kidding.  Anyone who knows me can say without hesitation that I HATE working out.  But I do like to listen to music and imagine myself kicking butt JennierGarnerInAlias– style.  You think that’s weird?  Well no one asked you.  Anyway.  I compiled a list of songs that, should I ever decide to exercise, I will listen […]

Tennis, Anyone?

By Katie Tabb, All American tennis player and Accountant Extraordinaire If Wimbledon is the prissy, white-wearing, “Heaven forbid I get grass-stains” epitome of tennis tradition, then the US Open is its bastard cousin.  Fans are rowdy, each match is a competition and a fashion show, and nothing about it could be described as traditional.  If […]
