At the hospital 1 month 2 months 3 months 4 months, in Florida First off, let me say that the following is by no means a comprehensive collage of Nuke baby’s “milestone photos.” I’ll be the first admit that I desperately need to adopt a better archiving system for my... Continue reading

In yet another #TBT moment, these photos were taken in January, when the Nuke was just five months! We had endeavored upon a road trip in New Zealand, where we stopped through Rotorua (known for its thermal pools), and then shacked up for a few days at the Solitaire Lodge,... Continue reading

In honor of TBT, I’m sharing with you some photos from our date night at Amanyara in Turks and Caicos, where we stayed at the Tuscany. What more can I say but... “wow.” From the moment I entered the property, I knew that I had stepped upon somewhere special. For... Continue reading

This weekend, we officially celebrated the Nuke turning one! It’s hard to believe that a year has gone by… I still remember, quite vividly in fact, the birth of my baby and the emotional rollercoaster that came with his arrival. I always knew that I wanted to celebrate our son’s... Continue reading

Point Blank, my drink of the moment It’s been a while since I’ve done a restaurant review in Manhattan (not for a lack of eating I might add, but possibly just laziness). In any case, a couple of weeks back (three to be precise), hubs and I did date night... Continue reading

Photos from a business getaway in Dubai (circa 2010). To me this embodies the perfect mix of business and pleasure! Having sat through my fair share of corporate events and visited enough places that accommodate them (see my series on luxe lodgings), I can safely say that hosting a corporate... Continue reading

Believe it or not, the last time we sailed together was on the Hudson River! See here. Just before sunset this Friday – my girlfriend and I were meandering along the beach when we walked past the water sports activity center (you know, the type that every hotel boasts but... Continue reading

Greetings from Mexico! My darling friend and I have been shacked up at the Riviera Maya since Friday, relaxing and indulging in some beach-side adventures along the Caribbean coast – think sailing, ziplining, ATV jungle rides, and the like. The only thing we didn’t get to see were Mayan ruins,... Continue reading

This Sunday, we drove out to the East End, this time to the South Fork of Long Island, into East Hampton – for some family down-time and culinary treat. Later, I’ll fill you in about our weekend itinerary, jam packed with kiddo-curated fun. For the time being, however, I wanted... Continue reading

Happy Friday! I can’t believe that it’s the first day of August already. In fact, I was just lamenting to a dear friend that this summer seems to be flying by at lightning speed. Nuke turned 11 months last week… and pretty soon, before we know it, he’ll one!!! Eeks.... Continue reading

This post has been high on my mind lately, not least of which is due to my #tbt throwback moment to Turks and Caicos and how I’m absolutely convinced that T+C is one of the loveliest places I’ve ever visited. You see, yours truly have been doing quite a bit... Continue reading

The moment we arrived, I was instantly zen. They even had a high-chair set up outside, ready for us! Mamma's been busy busy busy -- seems like the only time I have to write is when I'm in a moving vehicle of sorts. This is no less true for family... Continue reading

This Saturday, hubs and I headed over the bridge to Dumbo to see an old friend who’s in town for the weekend. She herself is heading onwards to a new voyage of discovery on the West Coast, and thereby leaving her old house, life, and belongings behind. As my friend... Continue reading

So this just happened. My West Coast Bestie and I – in the heart of the valley – drinking rosé, frolicking in an immaculately kept property and pool, under one of the most serene and gorgeous settings in town. Yes, that’s right ladies and gents, I’m referring to my recent... Continue reading

We were recently brunching in the West Village when hubs and I walked past the Jonathan Adler store on 37 Greenwich ave. I was immediately drawn to this place and wanted EVERYTHING. Maybe it’s the pops of colors, or the touch of whimsy, or the mochila-inspired pillows a la Colombia... Continue reading
