Mom bags – as in suitable for diapers – these are not. These Five Essentials are the bags women want, covet, and deserve for Mother’s Day. This isn’t a holiday for practical gifts (Mom is practical all year long!). That, to me, is disrespectful. Instead, show your mother how much you love her by showering … Continue reading Because She’s Worth It: The Five Essentials for Mother’s Day
I went to see End of the Rainbow recently, a musical about the months leading to the end of Judy Garland’s life. It stars Tracy Bennett, who was so spectacular I could not believe what I was watching. Mesmerizing performance aside, I was fixated on one of the props on stage: an opulent vanity trunk that opens … Continue reading T.T. Trunks Mademoiselle Trunk: Down to a T
I was recently invited to experience the St. Regis Shenzhen, which opened just one short year ago. How could I refuse a stay at the new Kingkey 100 property, a.k.a. the tallest building in Southern China?!

So the question I have to ask is who’s your … Continue reading Men’s Bags of Fall 2013: Part 2
With a powerhouse voice and real acting chops, Emmy Rossum is a rare breed of double-threat. Have you watched Shameless yet? It’s my new guilty pleasure: the Gallaghers are the family you love to hate but can’t help but love. Indeed, producers initially feared Emmy was “too pretty” for therole, but she plays Fiona with … Continue reading The Five Essentials Featuring Emmy Rossum
Downton Abbey is back on PBS this Sunday, and I can’t wait! My biggest burning question – will Lady Mary and Matthew really get married?? What will she wear for the wedding? As early 20th century British aristocrats, the star-crossed couple is always dressed to the nines. And with this season kicking off the 1920s, … Continue reading Getting into Character: The Five Essentials for Lady Mary
