Kicking Off 2019!

Me In the Beginning

Wow! I have not blogged since August! I thought my last post was in October. I’ve actually had to address a few things health wise, so that was a priority. (I’m fine. I was auditioning new eye doctors and ear doctors.) I also Marie Kondo’d the hell out of my apartment. All the clutter was really affecting my mental health.

And I was on the committee for the Newswomen’s Club of New York annual Front Page Awards. That definitely kept me busy. A wonderful evening celebrating top female journos was had by all.

Yup. That’s the master himself, Carl Bernstein. He was at the Front Page Awards to present an award to the NY Times’ Maggie Haberman. He is north of 80, and rearranged his schedule to take a train from Washington, DC, to be there. I am not worthy.

But I am going to do my best and return here on a regular basis. And I see by my e-mail notifications I have a few new followers. Welcome, ladies!

I thought a few Fabulous Links would get us started.

Jennifer Lopez is coming out with a makeup line this year. The woman looks better at 49 than I did at 29. I’ll have what she’s having. (Refinery 29)

You may have heard. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2019 is called Living Coral. I love coral clothes and makeup, especially for the warmer weather. I can’t wait! Check out these picks from Allure for inspiration. (Allure) How gorgeous is that Almay palette…

If you love New York City as much as I do, you may have heard about Bond No. 9, a line of perfumes inspired by locations around the Big Apple. Now the brand has come out with a line of red lipsticks. If you are always searching for that perfect red, like me, your search may be over. (Allure)

Gray hair is apparently trending. (Wall Street Journal)

Oh, and Jean Ann Ford, co-founder of Benefit Cosmetics, has passed. Truly an innovator. She will be missed. (Allure)

As for me, I am participating in Everyday Eyecandy‘s Project 52 photography project this year. The first prompt is You In the Beginning. That’s me above. In the beginning. I’ll keep you updated on how it’s going. I loved picking my camera up again,

I am still writing for The Doctor Will See You Now. One of my articles last month was about endocrine-disrupting chemicals in personal care products and their link to early puberty in girls. You can check that out here.

In 2019, I looking to spend more time doing what I love: blogging and photography. What are you looking to accomplish in 2019? Let’s talk goals and resolutions in the comments!

Vacation 2015: Florida

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. After a particularly nasty winter, I needed to get out of here. So I just got back from Florida, where I spent a week with Mama Bear. My parents are big golfers, so they rent a condo there every April.

It was amazing! We had great weather, and for the first time in months, I can actually feel my toes.

Here are some highlights, as seen on my Instagram.

I don’t pack light:
