What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in New York?
Sushi at Japonica. Maybe that’s not that cool, but my husband took me there fifteen years ago and it was the first time I ever had sushi. While I was eating it I started crying and when he asked me why, I said, “It took me 29 years to taste this and I could’ve been eating it the whole time.” Most couples can say, “They’re playing our song,” but we don’t have a song, we have a hand roll. Salmon, avocado, and plain mayonnaise.
Happy Holidays from Sunny California!
I am still not used to a warm and bright winter. Yes, it is wonderful to not be freezing or slipping in dirty wet snow puddles but I really do miss the way it is so sparkly in New York during the month of December.
Where ever you are, I hope this is a season filled with love and joy! Here’s to the New Year!
We are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not.

Love Love Me
I have been a fan of Curtis Kulig’s LOVE ME tag for as long as I can remember seeing it on the streets of NYC. It’s the same two little words but they are fraught with such emotion calling out over city streets and views, I can remember walking down the street feeling blue and seeing Love Me on the side of a mailbox and just feeling not so alone. Someone else out there wants to be loved too.
Yeah, I am a sucker for romance.
Just as much as I am a sucker for jewelry.
The Me+Mi collaboration is right up my graffiti strewn alley. Like myself, Jewelry designer, Mimi Jakobson hails from Venice Beach, a place that is covered in street art. I like to attribute my obsession with graffiti not to my 80’s hip-hop history but further back to the childhood experience of making up stories for all the murals I would pass on the boardwalk in Venice. I am imagining that she probably has a similar connection.
Because sometimes you need to wear your heart on your neck, wrist, fingers and ears rather than your sleeve to get the sentiment across.
