NO ONE DOES IT LIKE MOM

If you read nothing else on this blog besides this post, you will die a happier person. Everyone loves the feeling of independence. Leaving home, going off the college, for most, moving as far away as possible and finally determining your own life. As great as that might be, and as much as you might embrace … Continue reading

CHEAPEST BREAKFAST IN NEW YORK

Didn’t your mother ever tell you to eat breakfast? I don’t know about you, but the second I wake up, my metabolim turns into a 17 year old male football player I am ready to eat a three course meal. Attractive I know. And for those of you living on a diet of cigarettes, adderol … Continue reading

IF THE SHOE FITS…IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE

Discount malls, outlet stores and bargain basements scare me to death. Century 21 is like hell on earth and the thought of having to dig through a pile of clothes in between five other hungry and possessed women makes me feel slightly ill.

THERE AIN’T NOTHING LIKE A HOUND DOG

New Yorkers love their dogs. Point blank. The thing that I never understood when I came here though – was why, in the city with a reputation for the meanest people and the smallest apartments, did everyone’s hearts melt when it came to four legged companions? Then it hit me. In a city where people … Continue reading
