Dear Diary December 16 – This Jersey City Petsit Always Puts Me in the Mood to Relax & Why are these relaxed mornings especially meaningful for us nomads?

By

How many mornings do I get to write that:
I woke up feeling relaxed
Spent an enjoyable early morning washing up dishes, as my husband slept off some late night coding, from yesterday night’s superb vegan kitchen-sink, vegetable laden vegan lasagna that our omnivore, used to fancy restaurants because he’s a trader that has to entertain clients regularly, friend could not compliment enough (and which I had for breakfast!), as he quickly finished one plate and went back for seconds,
Then lazily took my time feeding the dogs at our petsit before happily sidling downstairs to the building gym to indulge in moving my body?

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

Searching For An Organic Mattress in NYC

By

While Sandy and I have no home to outfit for a bed, after reading about potentially harmful chemicals lying in the mattresses that we spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping and breathing on, I am hardstruck to ever consider buying a non-organic bed for us. Even our beloved memory foam beds are huge culprits of hosting these poisons. Fortunately there are a number of organic options one can try in NYC, and below I feature the best ones you can try out in a showroom before purchasing. They are not cheap, but I’m not suggesting you buy the $150,000 Hastens … 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
