The oft-quoted statistic says that 20% of New Yorkers go to bed hungry, and that one in four children in New York goes to bed hungry. Horrifying. A close friend of mine was one of those kids, and to this day she has anxiety about ever returning to the times when creditors were knocking on her parents’ front door and dinner wasn’t guaranteed.
There’s nothing that will affect my mood quite the way the weather will. When it’s sunny, minor annoyances just roll off my shoulder; when it’s cold or stormy, I’m just PISSED.ALL.THE.TIME. To this day, I question how I survived four years at Cornell…though, truth be told, I didn’t go to class all that much because of my issues with the weather
I’ve seen just about every fad come and go (thanks to the Digital Age, trends get recycled as quickly as the seasons change!), but one thing never goes out of style: anti-aging – or more specifically, lifting products that claim to reverse time.
Still on the fence about growing out your summer bangs? That’s what my friends and I have been debating about lately (I know…very deep). When I got a cut from celebrity hairstylist Adriana Tesler (she’ll come to you wherever you are in LA!), we decided to keep the bangs and just make them lighter. When they start getting longer, I’ll style them side-swept, but for now, I’m enjoying a little fringe.
A brewing trend thanks to runways and celebrities is ombré eyebrows. Don’t worry; it’s not like the ombré hair trend whereby there’s a clear color fade. It’s way more subtle – and for good reason. As someone who has made the mistake of lightening her brows only to spend YEARS living with the consequences I can’t stress enough how important it is to NEVER, ever lighten your brows via bleach.
Bathing and eating chocolate both sound pretty fabulously indulgent (and I hate the word fabulous!). As I write this, I’m munching on some brandy-infused chocolates I bought at Demel while in Vienna. You have to pop each chocolate whole into your mouth or risk some liquid dribble. Needless to say, it’s making it a bit easier to deal with my 4 p.m. slump.
