STUNT 101: I’ll Teach You How To Shop

Now it would be clichĂ© for me to say that shopping is therapeutic because that’s an understatement. Shopping is literally a lifestyle for me. I used to think I had an issue that probably required treatment from a therapist; until I realized my shopping habit is not problematic at all. I actually do this! The…

Stay Silky All Winter ’18

If you live anywhere on the East Coast, then you know how disrespectfully cold it has been lately. Temperatures as low as 5 degrees … Straight Tom Foolery.  Unfortunately, the more the temperature drops, the drier my skin tends to be. I’ve suffered from dry skin my whole life and living in cold climates do not help…

2017 Spring/Summer Essentials

With Spring in full effect, and Summer standing on our front porch, it’s time to fully prepare for this year’s warmest solstice. If you happen to live in the Northeast (especially New York) you know the weather has been a little schizophrenic lately. I mean seriously, one day it’s 90 degrees, the next it’s dropped down to…

An Open Letter to My Princess

  Dear Zahra, When I first discovered there was life inside of me it was July 14th, approximately 8 o’clock in the evening. So much was running through my mind, I was in disbelief. I made my first call to my best friend and what a conversation that was.  Still in disbelief, I made an appointment because…

Weary of the ways of the World
