A Garden in Times Square

This past week, my Mom, Ms. Latina, gave me the chance to head to Times Squares’ very own Olive Garden with two of my closest friends: Jose and Joyee. After watching a movie and sharing tons of laughter, indulging in “a taste of Italy” was great. The atmosphere of the restaurant was homey, a hard feat to achieve in […]

Wordless Wednesday: Have You Seen This Man?

While walking in Manhattan I noticed a poster asking for information about a man. He looked familiar somehow. Wouldn’t you agree? Below is a close-up.   Have you seen this man? If you have, please let us know in a comment.   Happy WW! Feel free to share your link or comments below.

Run. Jump. Squat. Repeat!

Run. Jump. Squat. Repeat! Run. Jump. Squat. Repeat! BREATHE. The past few weeks have been intense as a Lucille Roberts Ambassador. My body has done things it hasn’t done in ages. Honestly, after my first training session with my Lucille Roberts’ Trainer, I didn’t think I would make it. I was bright red, gasping for […]

Mischief, Magic and Mayhem With Disney Universe

I did not take a drink from a bottle labeled Drink Me, did not eat a cake with Eat Me written on it, yet it seemed I had fallen down a rabbit hole into Alice’s Tea Cup. It was a festive, inviting wonderland filled with all types of tea, served in dainty teacups. They were not labeled Drink Me. They did not […]

The Face Of Gratitude Blessed Me

This week I met gratitude face to face. In the middle of a chaotic week, I learned I had more to offer when I had nothing to give. Like most women, I am constantly juggling my time to accomplish as much as possible in a 24 hour day. I make to do lists, trying to squeeze in […]

Wordless Wednesday: CAUTION Expired Dog Treats

Last week I purchased a slew of dog treats for my puppies. When I went to open one, I noticed the below. Did you notice the expiration date? IT EXPIRED TEN YEARS AGO! Sadly, this is being sold in my neighborhood. I won’t state the name of the store because of privacy issues (Mine, not theirs!) However, […]

Don’t Get Caught in New York’s “Lucky Bag” Sting!

The New York Daily News recently reported about a fairly old Police sting that is rising it’s ugly head again. Apparently, police are leaving bags/purses unattended, in select NYC areas, while maintaining surveillance from a short distance away. Since its inception, the NYPD has arrested several hundred individuals who were tempted by the bags’ contents which included electronics and […]

9/11 Ten Years Later…

Today as I sit in my living room, listening to the police vehicles and fire trucks outside my window, I reflect on 911 and how much my life has changed. Ten years ago, I was working at a boutique law firm in the compliance department. I researched laws, both nationally and internationally, while also montioring the […]

Wordless Wednesday: Marker War

Below is what happens when you leave a teen and a tween to their own devices while you run out and enjoy a latte. I left them playing a board game and returned towards the end of a marker battle! Thankfully, the markers used were Crayola’s Washable Markers. Can you imagine if they had to […]
