The Select FileS
Consider these Files a distillation of years, days, months and hours spent researching, searching, tagging, pinning, asking for information and giving recommendations. They are your resource for all things beauty and fashion, your online travel guides, social guides, holiday catalog, life coach, design consultant and anything else in your life that might benefit from an exchange of thoughts and information.
The world is big and life is a work in progress. And these are just my 7 cents.
With at least six more weeks of winter ahead of us, and temperatures dropping as fast as the stock market, it’s not just our faces that are suffering from a serious case of cold-air aging. Look down: how do your hands look? Dry? Chapped? I thought so.Read More
I didn't start traveling until I was in my 30s, and since that first trip to Paris, I haven't sat still for more than a couple of months at a time. Travel makes us better people, keeps us fresh and might even help change the narrative of what's happening in our world right now.Read More
New York can, at times, feel incredibly tedious. It's a big city, in a (relatively) small space, with a shit ton of people, and at this time of year when there's dirty slush everywhere and it's so cold you can't do anything except hunker down in your apartment, you kind of want to flee to somewhere "easier."Read More
I mean, I sort of assumed that in this day and age, everyone was just slathering themselves all the time, because, you know, global warming. Anyway, turns out that NOT everyone knows how important sunscreen is all year round.Read More
It's Labor Day Eve and as depressed as I am about summer ending, I'm equally as excited about Fall coming. But mostly because it means chunky sweaters and ankle boots (I don't know about you, but I am sick of keeping my pedicure up). SO her are just a few things I'm eyeing at the moment. Let me know what you're adding to your wardrobes for colder weather!
It's hard to fathom what's going on in Texas right now. With unprecedented flooding and more to come (by the time the storm dissipates it will have dumped 25 trillion gallons of rain on the state), everyone affected by Harvey needs help, and they need it fast. In fact, the National Weather Service has suggested this storm could be the worst the U.S. has ever seen. Here's how you can helpRead More
Summer has FINALLY arrived and it's gonna be a scorcher, which means floaty dresses all day, every day. From beach bbq to garden party, these dresses will keep you looking perfect and feeling cool.
So I am going to write out loud here and work through what it means so we can all be on the same page. Then I'm gonna go through my newly cleaned out medicine cabinet and let you know what I really love that's clean. Like, really clean. Ready? OK.Read More
From New York, it's a super quick flight and I had heard such amazing things that I couldn't pass up the opportunity. Plus it was perfect for my whole family: historic city to explore and gorgeous beaches just a quick boat ride away.Read More
Sunblock. Ugh. It's a necessary evil, I know (especially since not only has age created a need for reading glasses, but has given me sun-induced brown spots ALL OVER MY FACE), but it's so hard to find something I can wear on my face in the heat and humidity that doesn't make me feel like I'm suffocating.Read More
I am a hideously bad packer. I mean – so bad. Here’s my process: the day before a trip I make a list of what I’m doing while away and then I choose one outfit for each event. And then I take 3000 other articles of clothing and jam them into the bag on top of what I’m actually going to use. Bad, bad packer.Read More
So I know I shouldn't be making this site (blog) about politics, but if you're anything like me, you're probably feeling a little (a lot) helpless and a little (a lot) scared about what's going on in our world right now.Read More
