Same City, Different Vantage Point

I felt like the view from the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence deserved it’s own post, so you get two gems for the price of one this week. Consider it in the spirit of #FlashbackFriday! Situated at the heart of the city, this ancient fortress/ palace/ guard-tower not only has incredible

Florence (And The Machine)

This completely unrelated headline sounded clever a year ago when I first thought of it, but now I’m just eager to share some flicks from quite possibly my favorite city in Italy. Thanks to my amazing hosts, the Scarpellis (who just welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world… congrats

D.C.anadian In The House

It’s a little anti-climactic that the first stop on my cross-country roadtrip was the distant and exotic land of Baltimore/ Washington D.C., but that’s where my cohort Erin is currently stationed, so I needed to swing by and scoop her up. Plus, her moms was eager to feed a sad,

#HashtagLunchbag is a movement that’s been near and dear to me for some time now. Started by a few amazing friends in LA about a year and a half ago, the notion of #livinghthroughgiving has spread like wildfire thanks to social media & the power of the interwebs. Today, over 70 cities

This year was supposed to be my first Thanksgiving staying in New York, so I figured I’d gather my motley crew of friends and do an epic feast of sorts. Turns out I’m now in the Bay stuffed to the gills from the most incredible array of traditional Chinese fare

Since transitioning to an ad agency and working from SOHO instead of Midtown, I’ve been indulging in sneakers, destroyed boyfriend denim and baggy knits/sweaters more often than I care to admit. By “more often than I care to admit,” I may or may not mean everyday. (Sorry Mom!) But what

Comeback Kid

It’s marginally embarrassing how long it’s been since I’ve last written a blog post. I use the term “marginally” very loosely, for there are wide margins (eg: the Yankees defeated the Angels by a gaping margin of 14–7 last week) and narrow margins (eg: please set the margins of your

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you know I’ve been running. A lot. It started as a simpler 9-miler after I finished the “Insanity” program just to prove to myself that I could do it. And somehow progressed into a half-marathon through Central Park, down the Westside Highway
