Georgia O’Keeffe’s New York

These are some of Georgia O’Keeffe’s lesser-known works.

These works are such a jarring variation from her usual natural subjects […]

It’s finally warm again! We dealt with a couple of weeks of cooler, rainy weather here in New York City, and I’m very happy that temperatures are moving steadily upwards.

My Favorite Room from the Kips Bay Decorator Show House

This was my first year visiting the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, and it was all that I imagined it would be. The Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club chooses a location each year (usually a townhouse), and they select a group of decorators to design a different room in the house. It is wonderful, […]

Tone It Up: Week Five Check In

This has been my worst week so far! I had dessert every night and missed four workouts. I did wonderfully for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner…but then would gorge on brownies or Cheerios (Cheerios were my weakness this week). I also had fish and chips AND fried chicken last night. I only have one excuse: […]
