The Return of Human Interaction and the Joy it Sparks

By

Received this letter from Lee Kim, the leader of the Design Dream Lab group I am a part of: “Dear dreamers, Today we hosted a joy potluck with seniors from Keepsbay. Every story was so beautiful and precious and my heart was filled with love and gratitude for having the chance to hear them. I am going to share one story here… It was a story that Naomi shared. She had her first doctor’s appointment this week. She was wondering why that appointment was scheduled because it wasn’t anything serious. She called her sister for advice and the answer was … Read More

Dumpster Diving in the Time of Covid 19

California Dumpster Diving

Oh My God She’s Back Again! Yes. That’s right b8tches. I’m back! I’ve been busy being a professional. Racking up lots of hours between being a Personal Assistant, a College Admissions Consultant, a petsitter, and the owner of 6 bedroom Airbnb right outside New York City. When not doing that, the hubs and I have been hiking, staging naturist photoshoots, taking part in 30 day media challenges, and continuing to dumpster dive and find other ways to be nomadic and thrifty, even in the time of Covid 19: What about you world? How have you been, and what have you … Read More

Am I a Redhead if I have Bright, Fiery Orange Hair?

By

I try to steer away from self-congratulations, especially in regards my appearance. I live in a city full of 9s and 10s, wagging about in the yoga pants with all the cut slits in the right places to accentuate their flesh. I feel like a 6 on a good day, but Dammnnnn Lesley @hairlove_nyc f’ing brought the house down with this vibrant mix of yellows, oranges, and reds! Personally, I never thought I could be a redhead. I’ve obviously done blues, silvers, purple, and pink. I’ve done various levels of blonde. But when we were in Toronto week ago, while … Read More

Giving up Instagram. Returning to Blogging

By

It’s not easy, but I’m giving up Instagram. Instagram My Woof Woof NYC account I’m passing to my friend, the glamorous and wonderful, Jabu Ndlovu. He’ll handle posting all our dog and cat photos, while handling communication with clients. I’ll occasionally post on Jennifer Snuffleupagus, but only when I feel driven to it. No longer will I post simply because I desire a reaction. Why? Social Media is More Harmful as it is Pleasurable (at least for me, and many of us) According to Time… One study found that positive interactions on sites like Friendster and MySpace could boost a … Read More

Being a Quitter & Restarting Blogging

By

Vlogging is TMI
Too much of my life is about respecting the privacy of others. You don’t need to know everything I do, everywhere I go, and that’s important when I live in a world that is made up of others’ lives as I am constantly in someone else’s home.

How To Love Being In Your Office and My Friend Phil

By

“Phil is single ladies.” Sometimes when you are on 7 week path of healing with your broken toe, you start to feel a little down in the dumps. “WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO AMBULATE AGAIN?!” I don’t say “walk,” because there are so many ways that I want to be able to move that I cannot. Of course, I cannot walk, but I also cannot plank, or do any yoga/pilates/zumba, or other fun exercise classes I had just gotten so fond of. I cannot hop or land heavily on both feet. I cannot do Cross Fit, or other activities … Read More

My Dirty Little Secret Is That I Want To Clean Your Home!

By

“Pay it forward.” – Otto Lee Liepin, my grandpa.
And I’m always finding ways to “pay it forward” with our gracious petsit hosts, whether getting them house plants to lift up the spirits of their home, or reorganizing their home office so that it is tidier than ever.
Here … I tackle the kitchen!
