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

$300 Pancake-Printing Machine Meta Review

By

Ok. So I’m not about to spend $300 on a 3D printing pancake batter machine. Remember, this is NY Nomads. However, I am happy to take snippets from reviews of this machine from all over the internet, so you can then decide whether this extravagant purchase may be one you derive just enough joy from to make the purchase worth it. “The PancakeBot is essentially a printer, but instead of ink on paper it prints batter on a griddle, adding it in stages to create details in light, medium, and dark shades. Sounds insanely cool, right?” –Danielle Centoni “Don’t expect … Read More

Broken Big Toe – Split Right Down the Middle Like a Y

By

Big toe bone snapped down the middle like a Y

Broken toe
Both bones in my toe splintered into left and right pieces.
So much pain.
It is hard to even breathe.
Don’t drop weights on your toe from the squatting bar while at Crossfit… And then continue to workout another 15 minutes.. and then wait 5 hours of perpetual bleeding before going to Urgent Care.

Is this the Messiest Petsit Apartment Ever? & My Nightly Beauty Routine Here

By

OMG. I have entered some messy apartments, and truth be told, I have probably entered some places just as messy, and for people who haven’t just moved in like this owner, AKA the hoarders in Williamsburg who spied on us! However, I’m still fairly astounded to see that she just up and left with boxes half emptied nearly any which way you turned. However, I understand that struggle of traveling on the regular and not having the time to pack, so I decided to help her out and organize her apartment! Where to begin? I’ve begun by clearing this space. … Read More

Back from Berlin!

By

Hello! We just came back from our trip from Berlin, where we just finished petsitting for our former NYC client, Thunder the dachshund. It’s a bit of an adjustment getting back to life here, but fortunately this morning I booked a last minute petsit that has us living back in another person’s apartment with two extremely adorable dogs, Waverly and Truffle! The house is a bit of a mess as their owner has just moved in and has been nonstop traveling ever since, so we are living among piles of boxes, magazines, and clothing. Can’t be helped, and as always … Read More

Berlin Tour: Charlottenburg Palace

By

One of the problems in being very laid-back about your trip planning – and instead using much of your home time to pet a dog, binge Stranger Things 2, and try to keep up with blogging and begin vlogging – is that you don’t research the places you are visiting as well as you could…
