Dating Etiquette. 2010. Whose Paying?

A funny thing happened on the way to the Smuin Ballet Saturday night. There I was, standing at will call window, glad to be on a date with my man, still excited he had agreed to see the Ballet with me. I stood patiently, taking in the human traffic that was dressed in business casual. Business casual was what I […]

MAC limited edition neutral line in Brown Bag nail color has got to be the most perfect color on brown skin.

Married Women Who Change Their Names and the People Who Judge Them

A recent study by Tilburg University in The Netherlands indicated that women who change their names upon marriage are often judged to be more traditional, less independent or ambitious, and not as smart.

Now I don’t have shake the brush to apply it on my lids, the battery powered 30$ wand will do that for me.   Elana Drell- Szyfer, senior VP of global […]

The Nostalgia of a New Year is always sought with that ineffable blend of sadness and delight. Sure, it’s not easy to let go of all the bad habits we’ve accumulated… I am forever addicted to French Fries, and there will be no New Year resolution that will ever force away this addiction. Never.
