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 […]

The Met Cloisters

07 . 20 . 21

After my field trip to the Van Cortlandt House Museum a few weeks ago, I stopped by The Met Cloisters. I love the quiet beauty of the cloister garden and I try to visit once or twice a year. “The Cloisters, a branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is America’s only museum dedicated exclusively […]

Last year felt like it crawled by at a snail’s pace while this year is flying by. I can’t believe it will be July next week. If you’re coming to the city or just looking for new things to see and do, I’ve got you covered. This week, I attended the Member Preview for The […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

So many people are back in the city for work and school that New York is definitely feeling back to normal but with masks. One thing that has helped with the normality is the reopening of museums. I visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Friday with a friend and it felt so good to […]

We lost some truly elegant women this year including philanthropist and art collector Jayne Wrightsman. She passed away in April at the age of 99 so she had a good long run. She also had a long run in her antique filled home at 860 Fifth Avenue. She and her husband Charles Wrightsman moved into […]

Things have been busy in New York as everyone prepares to travel and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday next week. I still can’t believe this year is almost over. It really feels like it was just January. I also haven’t done a Bon Weekend post in a few weeks so I thought one was in order. […]

It’s starting to look a little bit like fall in New York but it definitely still feels like summer. I’m off on a field trip today but here are some things to do and places to go and this weekend. My new iPhone 11 Pro is scheduled to arrive this weekend and I could not […]

After my recent travels and countless events in NYC, I’m looking forward to a quieter weekend but that doesn’t mean I’ll be staying home. There are many new openings worth checking out. I missed the press preview for the updated galleries at Sotheby’s last weekend because I was traveling so I walked over for a […]

I feel like the unexpected warm weather has helped me get my mojo back. I’ve been busier than usual and taking in everything New York has to offer that I’m sharing with you. If you happen to go to the Ralph Lauren ladies mansion for the café this weekend, make sure you go upstairs to […]

It’s a busy and fun time in New York right now. There are a lot of chic events, exhibitions, and store openings that you should definitely check out this weekend. Goop has had pop ups in New York and the Hamptons but they have just opened Goop Lab, a permanent store at 25 Bond Street. […]

After another heatwave in New York this week, I’m officially ready for fall. Although it looks like the temperatures will abate this weekend, it will also be rainy. Perfect time to watch something new on Netflix or take in a museum. Here are some options to get you through your weekend. First up, is The […]

Not all museum exhibitions have to be ground breaking. Some can just be beautiful and Public Parks, Private Gardens: Paris to Provence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art is beyond beautiful. The show “explores horticultural developments that reshaped the landscape of France and grounded innovative movements both artistic and green.” It features over 150 works […]
