We have been having some beautifully, apocalyptically warm weather in New York the past few days, and I am feeling it. I’m like a completely different person from winter to summer — seriously though, aren’t we all? — and the sunshine feels so good. In fact, it makes me want to buy things.

Summer dating can be really romantic. Get a beer outdoors! Wear that sexy sundress! Show off your tan! It’s all fun and games until someone starts to sweat. And it will probably be you. At least in winter the worst you can do is shiver uncontrollably or slip on a patch of ice. I have… READ MORE »

Personally, I love that Jason… READ MORE »

It’s officially past mid-August and somehow there’s still so much I want to do this summer. My husband and I moved apartments in July, which means we were inside many weekend days over the past two months packing/unpacking. Sad!

Summer fashion mistakes are committed by men as well as by women; however, the difference is your man may not understand how to correct his fashion faux pas. Ladies, your man should look “hot” during the summer instead of a fashion “not.” Please do your man a favor (and all of the women that will… READ MORE »

Remember when we were kids and these summer days seemed so endless? Sadly, the older we get the faster they go by, and so the last thing you should be worried about is feeling guilty for spending them any ol’ way you want. Plus, it’s hot out!

Ah, summer: fireflies, long, sun-dripped days, trips to the beach, flip-flops, and one of our favorites: the 4th of July holiday weekend, which, of course, is just a couple days away.

If there was ever a time to indulge in manicures and pedicures, it would be for the long, hot days of summer. Gloves and closed toed shoes are no longer necessary pieces of attire, which means fingers and toes are out on display for the world to see. But while this added effort may seem… READ MORE »
