The W Style Lab: Style On The Go!

I love the fact that the new W Style Lab at the W Hotel on the busy corner of 47th and Broadway (7th Floor) has something for everyone from totally delightful emerging designers/brands! You can buy practical items like sunscreen and sunglasses, but you can also buy quirky metallic sneakers, cool charm bracelets celebrating famous icons of NYC and other…read more

I Love Lilly–And Here’s Why You Should, Too! (She’s Got The Prints To Die For!)

The Love, Lilly line takes pride in fun prints, classic lines (like sleeveless A-line dresses) and being made right here in the USA (Connecticut to be exact)! I was lucky enough to attend her Garden Party press preview directly across the street from the Empire State Building last week and all I could say was that I fell in love…read more

The Launch Of Egg-Q! The World’s Easiest And Most Concise Fertility Test!

I was able to enjoy a mani at the chic Caravan Style Studio in the Gregory Hotel while I discussed the new EggQ test with its founder and spokesperson Silvia Mestre. It is actually her husband, Dr. Hernandez Ray--a Miami-based OB-GYN at the highly-rated Conception Florida in Miami--who developed the test. The test is simple. You pay $249 for the test online,…read more

John Paul Dejoria: His Latest Venture Brings Out The Bloggers En Masse

I was lucky enough to attend John Paul Dejoria's presentation at The National restaurant's conference room about his latest investment project, Aubio Cold Sore Treatment Gel and Lip Balm. The gel is an all natural formulation that users (including people in Dejoria's office) swear makes cold/fever sores disappear overnight while the balm help prevents them.

I Picked Up “Wings Fever” At Buffalo Wild Wings In Times Square (BUT FELL IN LOVE WITH THE STREET TACOS, TOO)

I am a huge buffalo wings fan, so when I had the chance to check out the Buffalo Wild Wings location in Times Square on West 47th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, I jumped on it. It is not only a wings haven, but a sports fan haven as well. It must have the largest amount of big screens…read more

Now's the time to start planning your trip to the festival, taking place 6/28-7/8. It is the 38th year of…read more

It’s Adoro Lei For Valentine’s Day 2017–And Beyond! You’ll ADORE It!

Pardon the play on words, but I just went to Adoro Lei right before Valentine's Day and sampled their $35 Three Course Valentine's Prix Fixe Dinner--and ADORED it! Most of these items were created by the chef just for Valentine's Day but you can get the Burrati, Pizza (which they call "Lover's Pie" for Valentine's Day) and Skirt Steak on…read more

Dylan Lauren recently invited celeb, society and press pals to a party at the Union Square location of her legendary Dylan's Candy Bar to celebrate her getting on the cover of The Resident magazine.

Coffeemania Is Much More Than World-Class Coffee And Tea Drinks–It’s Cutting Edge Russian/Modern American Fusion!

What a pleasant surprise I had when attending a press dinner at Coffeemania at 40th Street and Sixth Avenue last week. It is gorgeous and spacious (it used to be the site of a Staples store) and has a nice taste of Russian applied to many of the dishes as the owner is from Moscow and has 30 successful Coffeemania…read more

The Smithereens At BB King’s: Don’t Miss It!

Pardon the pun, but for 35 years, The Smithereens have somehow managed to stick around without falling into “bits and pieces” like other bands in the "classic rock" genre. They are pretty much intact (well, three quarters intact if you count the change in bass players from Mike Mesaros to Severo “The Thrilla” Jornacion about 10 years ago). They are a band that started with an…read more
