In a day when 171 Starbucks locations litter the streets of Manhattan , and Folgers has been voted “America’s Favorite Coffee,” I had to wonder for a bit if New Yorkers were doomed to searching out the dwindling coffee hot spots of the East Village and Brooklyn when we crave good amazing coffee. But with RBC’s recent introduction to TriBeCa, caffeine lovers won’t have... More...

I dig snail mail, but pigeon mail makes me want to O. Thankfully when I realized that the missing piece in my life right now is not a man, but a carrier pigeon, I found this website for a sick deal on freshly hatched pigeons (only $25 right now, but bidding continues): http://www.forsalepigeons.com/cgi-bin/auction/auction.pl?category=racingpigeons&item=1252462166 . slave pigeons Don’t quit...

Every summer I go through the same process; I start to itch for new hair, new clothes, new makeup, and an overall new look. And so far, I’ve been majorly successful at turning a new style leaf! This past week I walked out of Bumble & Bumble rocking a new variation of my short locks, I accumulated half a new wardrobe when I traded in my rejected threads at Beacon’s Closet and Buffalo Exch...

As displayed in my bio photo, I rock short hair. Super dense – and sometimes unmanageable – short hair. And since my decision to chop it all off three years ago, I’ve quadrupled the size of my hair product collection. But even though I’ve had this passion to style and funk up my hair in fun, daring ways, it was beginning to seem as though the perfect “stuff” for ... More...

Summer’s here! Woo! Sure, it’s exciting. Beaching, outdoorsy activities, minimal clothing, etc. – what’s not to like, right? Wrong. This in New York City, and let’s be real, the summer in the Big friggin’ Apple smells like, well, ASS. Just envision this: it’s mid-day, you decide to meet an old friend in Chinatown for some bubble tea, and as you meander down... More...

Summer is one of my favorite seasons for a plethora of reasons, one of which is that New York turns into an eye candy feast of beautiful flesh that was sadly covered up during the fall and winter seasons. Apparently, I’m not the only one who appreciates beautifully exposed skin; according to SpeedDate.com‘s recent poll, 45% women are thrilled to be seeing more man chest and shoulders, whil...

With summer upon us, I’m gearing up to shed the layers and flaunt my personal wardrobe staples of sundresses, bermuda shorts, and tank tops – all items of clothing that leave pieces of me exposed that were otherwise bundled up at the height of the winter season. What does this mean for me (and any other self-respecting woman)? My sh*t must be on point! My requirements: 1. Clear skin Mini-WONDERBAR, 25 g... More...

If there’s one celebrity that I would give up chocolate to meet, it’s Angelina Jolie. I mean, we share TONS in common: a love for kids (though I’ve gladly refrained from adopting 12,980 children and having ten of my own), a love for Brad Pitt, and a similar taste in fashion! Angelina Jolie in Hollie Maxi Dress by Ella Moss Angie’s recently been spotted around her new Long Isla... More...

Hooray! Dress season is here! After spending many years of wearing more skinny jeans and t-shirts than flowy dresses and tight skirts, I’ve managed to accumulate precisely eight great summertime dresses between last spring and now. My goal for this spring? To have transitioned into packing my closet with a more feminine, up-to-date wardrobe by the end of the month, and I know exactly where I... More...
