All posts in bon weekend

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week. Things are incredibly busy in the city again. I’ve been attending films at the New York Film Festival and seeing friends. I’ve also been doing the Prolon fast mimicking diet this week which has made me a little tired. I have one more film tomorrow and […]

I started working on this post on Thursday and kept getting sidetracked. But I wanted to finally get it up today so you can know about all the exciting time sensitive things happening online and in the real world. There are some great exhibitions on view now and coming up, as well as, new books […]

Summer is not my season so I’m been working on a lot of projects (the reason for the radio silence) and biding my time until fall. I do have to say that the city is looking lush and beautiful though. I love all the green and white plantings I saw on Fifth Avenue Friday. There […]

I can’t believe we’re in June already. It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun again. There are so many things going on in New York right now and about to happen so I’ve rounded up the best for you. I haven’t been to the MoMA since I went to the preview of the […]

Tulip season is over in New York and the city is now lush and green. Traffic is back too which is a sure sign the city is back to normal. It’s going to be a bit chilly and rainy here this weekend which makes it perfect for watching a new show or movie if you’re […]

The temperature in New York has been vacillating wildly lately but at least it looks like it will be beautiful on Saturday. I’m going to try to take another walk on Park Avenue to enjoy the tulips and cherry trees at their peak before rain arrives on Sunday. That actually works out perfectly so I […]

Winter chill has returned to New York but it looks like Easter will be warm at least. A lot of great things popping up this April besides tulips and daffodils and I’ve got them covered today. Since all my friends and I have been vaccinated, talk has turned to travel and where we want to […]

Spring has definitely sprung in New York but we’re still waiting for everything to bloom. (The photo above is from a few years ago.) It really feels almost back to normal though with the amount of people out and about thanks to the vaccine. But it’s going to rain all day tomorrow so if you […]

It’s freezing in New York right now but warm weather so I look forward to spending some time at home reading and watching movies. These are some things to do, watch, buy, and enjoy this weekend no matter what the weather is where you live. I had the pleasure of attending the press preview for […]

Are you sick of snow yet? I know I am. I don’t remember the last time it snowed so much in New York. I guess it is one good way of getting most people to stay home in a global pandemic though. One thing that’s helping me get through are flowering branches. Those are quince […]

I’m actually not that sad that we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day during a pandemic since it means everyone can celebrate comfortably at home. It’s especially nice to stay cozy due to the Polar Vortex temperatures and snow in much of the country. Here are some things to keep you entertained and occupied for the long bank […]

My Rembrandt

01 . 09 . 21

After turning my brain to mush watching Bridgerton and too many Hallmark movies, I was excited to watch the documentary, My Rembrandt, this week. Most people think of the Old Masters as a very boring group but this documentary proves that Rembrandt paintings come with intriguing stories and sometimes controversy for those who own them. […]

The time before Thanksgiving is usually full of meal prep and excitement but this year is obviously feeling much different. I’ve put together some new shows and openings to keep your mind off the news. I couldn’t finish season three of The Crown because I thought Olivia Coleman was overdoing it as the Queen but […]

The Queen’s Gambit

11 . 05 . 20

If you are looking for something to distract you from the election vote count, I highly recommend The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix. It stars Anya Taylor Joy, who you might remember from EMMA, as “orphaned chess prodigy Beth Harmon who struggles with addiction in a quest to become the greatest chess player in the world.” […]

Even though it’s autumn in New York, I’m thinking about springtime in Paris thanks to Emily in Paris and some other things going on this weekend and month. You will enjoy them no matter where you live. I’m finishing up my last day of Prolon Fast Mimicking Diet so I’ve been home all day binging […]

I’m on Nantucket right now and usually travel derails even the best laid intentions to eat healthy but I am completely on track and I credit this to the Prolon Fast Mimicking Diet I did in August. Since I finished, I haven’t had any cravings for sugar or dessert and haven’t eaten anything sweet in […]

Have you been reading all the features on whether New York is dead or not? I took a walk today and every street on the Upper East Side was bustling with outside dinners and a new bodega had opened in a location that was left empty when another bodega closed this past winter. A lot […]
