All posts in bon weekend

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 […]

I really can’t believe that it will be August next weekend. Times flies when you can’t go anywhere or do anything. I jest of course. We can do things in New York but I have no desire to eat outside with people not wearing masks even if we are in one of the states that […]

It’s the Fourth of July holiday weekend but it doesn’t feel as celebratory this year especially since many people can’t travel or see their family. I’ve put together some things to get you through this weekend whether you will be spending it at home or the beach. My first trip post quarantine was to Sag […]

I apologize for the radio silence this week. I started a few interior design posts but just couldn’t get them together. It’s still so hard to find inspiration in quarantine but I’m hoping that a change of scenery next week will help get me back on track. I was lucky enough to receive one of […]
