Hallelujah, beautiful, balmy weather has arrived! Yesterday, the temps in New York City reached optimal levels (in my opinion) and I celebrated by drinking beers on my roof and cultivating a patchy base tan. The only downfall to this arrival of summer weather is how hot I get when my hair is down — but… READ MORE »

Arancini is a popular Italian dish in which balls of rice, often mixed with cheese, are breaded and deep fried. Thus the common nick name, rice balls. My Italian brother-in-law, who prepared them regularly at his deli, introduced me to them and I fell in love with how creamy and cheesy the inside of these… READ MORE »

“I’m outdoorsy in that I like getting drunk on patios,” pretty much sums me up to a T. I think we can all agree that one of the best things about the warm weather is the ability to throw back cocktails in the sunshine, am I right? So when the people move from indoors to… READ MORE »

Year after year we see the same triangle, bandeau and halter bikinis packing the beach and laying poolside. I appreciate a classic bathing suit, but really? Isn’t it time for a change?

Restaurant owner Daniel McCawley’s clever response to a sexist comment requesting that his waitresses “show more skin” had me cheering in the wings …  and craving potato skins.

Listen, I’m not a graphic designer. But I am a porn enthusiast. So when I heard that PornHub had selected their top 15 finalists for their first ad campaign, I was like, Shit, how did I miss this opportunity to show PornHub how much I understand their brand? PornHub is, after all, my favorite online porn database thanks to their… READ MORE »

Some shoes are made for walking — these shoes were made for adoring. I don’t know about you, but some of my prettiest pumps never leave my closet. I never want to walk in theme for fear of blisters and scuffs. There is no room in my life for a pair of $1,000 shoes,… READ MORE »

I’m allergic to shrimp, so I rarely partake in paella at restaurants; however, a few weeks ago I had a vegetarian paella that was orgasmic. Gato, a restaurant here in NYC, serves a kale, wild mushroom, and crispy artichoke paella topped with a sunny side up egg. The runny yoke was the perfect compliment to… READ MORE »

Do I really need a reason to post this many photos of Ryan Gosling standing at the press call for his directorial debut, “Lost River,” at the Cannes Film Festival?

Summer is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to hair. It’s the season of beachy waves and sexy curls, but also epic frizz and greasy roots. The perfect antidote? A pretty scarf! Tie one on to tame a bad hair day, draw attention to a good one, or just add some retro… READ MORE »
