Hot Sweaty Mess

Summer in the city is comprised of many short jaunts from one air conditioned venue to another, intermingled with cold showers.

Don’t Believe The Hype

Okay, I take that back. Don't always believe the hype.

Snowboots and Sunscreen: Spring in NYC

The week started with lunch on Monday at La Mercerie a retail restaurant in Soho created by the team behind Le Coucou (my favorite restaurant in NYC). I went with two friends who are home stagers, who love all things design related. It was packed with fashionable diners, the food was good (but don't come hungry as the portions ...
