 {Indian Summers and sitting on a stoop} I love Fall in New York, the crisp air, the Fall activities, wearing sweaters and drinking pumpkin spiced lattes.  Except last weekend felt more like Summer than Fall.  It was one last hoorah before packing up my Summer Wardrobe and seeing my tan fade away.  I’ve never gone […]

{Dipping my toes in the lake} Last Tuesday, I went to an inspiring dinner with experienced and budding entrepreneurs and the one topic that was repeatedly mentioned was finding our passions in life.  I’ve written about this topic several times (like here) on my blog.  It can be hard to remember what our passions are or even know what they […]

{Strolls on the beach} I love the promise of Spring.  When you see the buds finally sprouting out of the ground, the birds chirping in the morning and dewy mornings that lead into warm afternoons.  Spring is such a magical time in the city.  Everything starts to bloom and people start dining outside at sidewalk […]

 {Hearts on gift packaging} Nothing invigorates me more than traveling.  I came back from Istanbul feeling refreshed and renewed albeit some jetlag.  I felt so inspired by the city, the sights, and the food.  Now, it’s back to reality which trust me, isn’t that bad so don’t start sending the hate mail that I’m complaining.  It’s just I’m […]
