The Manhattan Transfer

Filed under Blog

On Wednesday of last week the media announced that a “large piece of Antarctica’s ice shelf broke-off.” They then went on to report the size as approximately 7 times the size of Manhattan. Honestly, I just had to laugh. Not for a moment was I laughing over the further evidence of climate warming, because unlike […]

Single Mom Going on a Business Trip Sans Kids–We’ve got You Covered!

Honestly, I hate going away on a trip. Whether it’s for business or pleasure the thought of packing, and unpacking and  getting everything organized so when I return home my kids don’t look malnourished, sleep deprived and that they have actually remembered to change their clothing- at least once over the course of my three […]

Best & Worst Celebrity Style

I’ve been following (and copying) celebrity fashion for a loooooooooong time (you would too if you learned to read by pilfering your grandma’s stash of People magazines). Sure, there have been misses – blue, pink and yellow Punky Brewster high-tops come to mind – but there have been a few hits too, like the Audrey Hepburn-esque […]

Passenger’s Rights: Oh Hell No!

That was the response of the Federal Government this week, declining a bill that would have granted airline passengers the right to water, fresh air and food on flights stalled over three hours. Airlines were quick to laud the demise of the bill as a “victory for airlines and passengers.”  How can the right to […]

Defining Expertise: Hey, Don’t Ask Me!

I used to be an expert. Does that make me a “former expert” or “ex-officio expert”? Or just a “has-been”? I didn’t start out wanting to be an expert. I mean, sure, by virtue of the era in which my ideology formed, I wanted to save the world. I also wanted to be held in the […]

On Aging as a Female Member of the Workforce

One thing working women all have in common, regardless of occupation, is that with each passing day we get a little older. This is true of our male counterparts, but somehow age as it relates to the workplace is different when you’re a woman.   Women who start their careers right out of school, whether […]

Loving Those Podcasts…

When I got my lovely little iPod Nano for Christmas, I quickly fine tuned my I-tunes program, edited my various music tracks and did my first “synch-up.” Soon after I was going off to the gym listening to my favorites, Johnny Cash, the Dixie Chicks, Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, and other personal favorites. One day, […]

By the time you read this, I’ll be on my third trip to the all-you-can-eat buffet in some Las Vegas casino. The only thing scarier about the calorie intake I’ll be happily shoving down my gullet is the fact that this is my first proper vacation with a boyfriend. For a tried-and-true, famously non-committal single gal like me, that […]

After the emotional drag of a super-sized February (we’re looking at you, Valentine’s Day!), it’s fantastic to finally leave the bleak winter behind us and welcome spring with an open-armed sprint normally reserved for greeting hot boyfriends at the airport and the first day of the Barneys Warehouse Sale. Pick up the trends below so […]
