Home for the Holidays

Christmas is upon us and many of us are turning our thoughts away from work to our families and friends and to travels home.  This is a time of hopeful expectation, reflection and nesting.   I am just a bit melancholy as I remember the excitement and energy that permeated our household during this anticipatory week when my family was very young.  Nothing is as magical as a child’s joy on Christmas morning and nothing changes … Read More


This weeks Intimate Discovery:

I first saw the eclectic Between The Sheets brand by the talented young designer, Layla L’obatti  several months ago.  I was completely captivated by the sensual and casual lifestyle collection whose demure, but provocative design aesthetic completely captures my personal definition of     What Is Sexy.  Intimate pieces drape the body in a buttery soft silk modal knit  and beg to be layered.  These styles from the Playdate Collection are a … Read More


Leg Music

Last week I accompanied my 13 year old nephew to a concert at Carnegie Hall in which his cousin was performing an oboe solo with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.   I enjoy music, but I am not a connoisseur.  In fact, I have been accused of being tone deaf.   Music has never been an art form that has generated a visceral reaction from me.  I am a devotee of silence and the visual, which for … Read More

The Gift

It’s November 26th, the day after Thanksgiving, the start of the holiday season and my 30th wedding anniversary.  It’s a big gift giving time of year, but somehow, the whole process has become a chore.  Time has erased the need to own “things”.  Experience has taught me that a true gift is a rare luxury; a combination of thought, pleasure and emotion.  A great gift is not only a joy to receive … Read More
