  1. February 2024 Second skin

    Second Skin

    Fragrance is my second skin and I adore edgy, masculine scents. Bo, by Liis, which according to its female founders, "evokes a coastal forest," with redwood pine, cedar, incense & vanilla. Tobacco Toscano, by Santa Maria Novella is equally compelling, think tobacco, leather, cedarwood and vanilla, the perfect woody bouquet.

    The vibes are similar, but each stand very tall on their own. Perfection.


    I tend to stick to neutrals and always consider metallics one of them. Whether in jewelry, fabric, or metal, they attract the eye, a touch of sparkle goes a long way. So, when I went down a rabbit hole searching for the perfect pair of socks, I spied these, and they’re a 10.

    Wear with Birkenstocks, ballet flats and even kitten heels. These delicate ankle socks add a twinkle. The devil is in the details, and the price point... spot on.

  4. August 2023 Great reads


    My parents are avid readers and encouraged me to delve into books for as long as my memory stands. I consider it a tremendous gift and thank them often. During hideous adolescent moments, commiserating with characters and escaping into another world was my saving grace. Here are a few fiction beauties, I’ll save real life for later.

    • Signal Fires by Dani Shapiro
    • Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver
    • Horse by Geraldine Brooks
    • Night Circus by Erin Morganstern

    Happy August.

  5. July 2023 Belgian bliss


    When it comes to trends, there are one season wonders and investment pieces. As I’ve gotten older, I tend to spend more and buy less. It’s both a sustainable practice and suitable for my lifestyle. I tend to nod toward a trend, not embrace it full stop.

    When I look in my closet, there are pieces that have stood the test of time; Chloe blazers, Prada anything, Manolo Blahniks and Belgian loafers. The latter are making a strong comeback and hopefully, gaining new fans that will treasure them like all of us did in the 80’s and 90’s.

    For those not familiar, you wear them 20 ish times (never in the rain) and then request a cobbler line the soles with rubber. They mold to your feet and are as comfy as slippers.

  6. June 2023 Cast away


    For those of you who don’t know, I love to cook. It’s my form of meditation and truly takes my mind off all, I find it incredibly grounding. Cooking for family and friends is a passion.

    My absolute favorite pans to cook with are cast iron, and not just any but from The Field Company. They’re lighter than most, which is key, and their sleek designs marry form and function perfectly. Like with any cast iron, the more you use it the better they get, but due to the smooth finish the seasoning that builds up is shiny and makes me smile.
