cupcakesbacon970
Long before there was a cupcake bakery in every town and cupcake trucks roamed the streets, there was The Cake Lady.
aspenhoriz
I’ve spent more than a few evenings at Aspen for drinks and appetizers at the bar with my girlfriends, but it’s been a few years since I had dinner in the dining room.
srobertsMain970
Some shops are just BETTER in the spring. Or maybe it’s me; happy to see a bright boutique filled with beachy dresses, washed linens and poppy prints.
lampshades970
It’s hard to know what shape suits a lamp (Drum? Modified Bell? Retro Oval?) and even harder to find ones that match your decor.
guacamole
My poor husband often gets an earful about the challenges I face (I mean, really, he’s diagnosing cancer and I’m writing A VERY IMPORTANT BLOG).
marlton970
We spent a mother/daughter weekend in Greenwich Village, pretending it was Paris!
yogaraffanancy
Spending time with your closest gal pals is like chicken soup – heart-warming, soul-soothing, and often side-splitting too!
dirtfloor970
A renowned recording studio in the woods in Chester? Really? Yup. Dirt Floor is the brainchild of uber-talented, multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter Eric Michael Lichter.
isabelfinal970
If you need a little tweak, I’ve sought the advice of some local experts so we’ll all be beauties, come summer.

MOST POPULAR

Yup, it’s true. I spend a lot of time online. I have the bulletproof excuse that I actually work online. But you all know how easy it is to get distracted.

One of the funniest comments I ever received upon meeting a reader was, “Wow, I thought you were young and blonde!” Hey, gotta love honesty! Here’s the kicker: until I glance in the mirror, I feel young, too!
Dress-Like-A-Grown-Up
Because in my head I still think I’m 30, I’m drawn to clothing that is often a wee bit on the young side.
kugel970
You may already know that we celebrate every holiday in our family and for us, it's all about the food.

IstockBeauty970
I’ve been on the hunt for a fast face fix that doesn’t involve pain, down time or looking like a younger, but odder, version of myself. Plus, I’m a scaredy cat.

Argan Oil is a natural oil extracted from the nut of the Argan tree, bursting with vitamin E and essential fatty acids, it’s meant to cure everything from dry skin to eczema.
IstockWellness970
The Spa of Essex offers all manner of scraping, kneading and polish, but I was here to meet with their new Health Management and Wellness Coach, Dr. Holly Read.
Everlastings970
An entirely organic salon on the Shoreline? YES! From nail polish to highlights, all treatments offered are free of harmful chemicals.
Salmon970
Long gone are the days when I could drop five pounds in a week or two. While I refuse to step on a scale, I can tell where I’m at by the jeans I fit into and I’m not at a happy place.
