sweater weather

It’s that wondrous time of year where families gather and people bundle inside to hide from the oncoming cold. The Starks got one thing right, winter is coming.

Maya Angelou gestures while speaking in a chair during an interview at her home on April 8th 1978.

Earlier this year, a diva from the highest of divadry orders passed from this Earthly realm. By “diva” I mean a highly accomplished woman worthy of praise and reverence. Words cannot do justice to the magnitude of Maya Angelou’s life. This woman overcame poverty, racism and sexual abuse to become a celebrated author, poet, dancer, […]

Dorothy Parker quotes are perfect for those days when nothing seems genuine and your mouth hurts from fake-smiling, because Dottie didn’t have time for that noise. A celebrated poet, critic, satirist, short-story writer and screenwriter, she was fired from Vanity Fair because her harsh (and honest) reviews closed three plays. She was an active, self-proclaimed […]

Jessica Marti on WtD

Beauty is in a woman who has an inner soul that resonates through her pores. Her beauty is that of which demands to be seen, loved and appreciated just by her aura, her essence. She Glows. A woman isn’t and should not be measured by the size of her nose, her teeth, how high her cheekbones […]

Just about every time I have a girlfriend book her tickets to come visit me in NYC, there’s {pretty, much always} a minor freakout that goes something along the lines of: “OMG, We’re going to be just like Carrie Bradshaw!!” as I just sit there and smile.
