    Dinner and a Movie in Greenwich Village in NYC

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] T [/dropcap] his past weekend was beautiful here in New York. Blue skies, sunshine, warm weather and no humidity. I met a friend for dinner and a movie and we decided to see Closed Curtain at The Film Forum. The Film Forum is in a fun and picturesque part of town which surprisingly was not crowded. Summer in NY is hot and many people flock to the beaches and Fire Island, though there were certainly plenty of tourists about, but after all it is summer in New York

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] H [/dropcap]appy Throwback Thursday everyone! Here is a picture of my kitty, Chloe when she was about six months old.

We decided to stop at a park/camp ground called Wild Wood State Park. For my New York based readers this is a fun one day trip and a nice break from the hot and hectic pace of NYC in the summertime.

    When The Healthy, Wealthy and Successful—Kill Themselves

    [dropcap custom_class=”normal”] I [/dropcap] n the last few years the fashion world was twice shaken to it’s core by unexpected suicides. First in February 2011 with the death of Alexander McQueen and a second time earlier this year by the death of L’Wren Scott. On the surface both of them seemed to have it all. Success, money, relatively good health and recognition for their work. In both cases they had experienced some upset and turmoil in their lives prior to their deaths.
