Anti-Aging Hair Care: Because I Needed to Be Reminded I Am Getting Old

(1) Comments | Posted January 21, 2014 | 4:12 PM

With a medicine cabinet of beauty products promising anti-aging success for skin, face and eyes, my hair was having major case of FOMO.

My hair is getting old -- but not in the "I'm graying, dye me now" way. Until recently, I thought color was the only determining factor of...

Love Advice From Celebrities and Other Influential People

(0) Comments | Posted October 4, 2013 | 6:26 PM

I am very bad at taking life advice. Very, very bad. It's not because I'm rebellious or stubborn (though my mother may disagree on both counts). I just often do not have the capacity to retain personal guidance that does not apply to my life when I'm not looking for...

WoMan Made: A Stupid[er] Quest for Femininity

(0) Comments | Posted June 26, 2013 | 5:27 PM

I have not one -- not two -- but three brothers. As a self-proclaimed tomboy, growing up in a house of video games, little league practices and at a dinner table that resembled an ESPN broadcast, life was heavily male-influenced.

So, when I read Joel Stein's book Man Made: A...

Three Things to Do One Time in NYC, As a New Yorker

(1) Comments | Posted April 18, 2013 | 2:21 PM

New York isn't for the faint at heart (and The Fhitting Room on the Upper East Side is certainly not for the faint). Still, being courageous has nothing to do with going back for more.

Although many city experiences (good and bad) are one-of-a-kind, there are a handful I refuse...

5 Things I Wish I Knew in High School

(1) Comments | Posted April 15, 2013 | 10:28 AM

Oh, adolescence. So easy, comforting and devoid of awkwardness. #SaidNoOneEver

The consensus that high school is always full of fun, friends and forever-in-our-hearts memories exists for a select few. For the rest of us, there are ups and there are downs, mistakes and mishaps. We learn in the classroom...

Another Year, Another Birthday, Another Wish

(0) Comments | Posted March 7, 2013 | 11:56 AM

Whether atop a cake, cookie, or stack of pancakes -- when I blow out candles celebrating another 365 days of my existence, my birthday wish is always the same: to be happy.

This may sound silly, or even simple (and now that I've revealed it, un-superstitious). As I...

Keeping It Kosher, Kind Of

(3) Comments | Posted March 5, 2013 | 2:57 PM

All is fair in love and... food.

Unlike my last name, which is clearly of Jewish descent, my size one/two frame is quite deceiving, as I happen to be a very good eater. Though my palate doesn't involve pork (I didn't grow up with it in the house) or...

Moving in Manhattan

(1) Comments | Posted February 20, 2013 | 11:06 AM

Surviving in New York isn't easy.

Between winter blues, the high cost of living, annoying subway delays, and the ban of extra large soft drinks, I still manage to love this city. Perhaps it's because I can't live without Tacombi at Fonda Nolita tacos, people watching from R Lounge...

An Exercise in Volunteering

(0) Comments | Posted January 31, 2013 | 12:09 PM

Much like the gym, (for me) the hardest part of volunteering is getting there. And yes, the difficulty I speak of includes torturing myself by watching Rachael Vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off and other Food Network shows from the treadmill.

Although working out and volunteering may have little else in common,...

Being Your Own Means of Motivation

(0) Comments | Posted January 25, 2013 | 3:59 PM

I was never a cheerleader. Ever.

"Peppy" isn't a term I use to describe my high school-self. Awkward? Probably. Smart? Sure. Ambitious? Yes. Spirited? Not so much.

It's not that I didn't have school pride- - I played varsity tennis and ran cross-country -- but shouting words of encouragement from...

Elevator Pitch Evolution

(2) Comments | Posted January 9, 2013 | 5:05 PM

I talk to strangers. A lot.

This a) terrifies my mother, b) sometimes embarrasses my friends and c) has created some awkward situations.

In fact, as I write this in a hotel lobby, I've been holding intermissions for conversations with a woman talking to me about her family life,...

Vegetarian Like Me: Meatless Milestone

(78) Comments | Posted December 14, 2012 | 4:23 PM

Senior year of college, I decided to hold a pre-Thanksgiving Friendsgiving potluck in the month of October. Perhaps it was out of sheer boredom (my course schedule, which included Stress and Relaxation online, wasn't particularly challenging). Plus, I figured this was the perfect time to practice Turkey preparation for my...

Drowning and Other Fears

(0) Comments | Posted November 26, 2012 | 11:00 AM

My oldest memory, as many of my childhood recollections, takes place at my grandparents' house in New York -- before they migrated to Florida. I am happily splashing around in their backyard pool. I'm nearly 4 years old, wearing a sparkly Barbie bathing suit, my blonde curly hair in pigtails....

Hurricane Sandy: I Can't Complain

(0) Comments | Posted November 1, 2012 | 5:25 PM

Hurricanes, shmuricanes.

This was my blasé feeling toward the natural disaster, having grown up in South Florida, where they make an appearance two to three times a year. I remember Hurricanes Andrew through Wilma -- all boring and requiring me to pick up a book when the power went...

For Macaron Parlour on the Lower East Side, the Story Starts on Halloween

(1) Comments | Posted October 18, 2012 | 12:00 PM

In New York, nothing surprises me.

This includes $300 steak and eggs on LAVO's brunch menu, restaurants (like The Smile) open on Thanksgiving, the inability to find a cab when I'm already running 10 minutes late, and my patience waiting in line for frozen yogurt at 16 Handles (it's...

Finding Yourself and Your Pants

(2) Comments | Posted September 25, 2012 | 11:52 AM

I remember crying for days.

Tissues, a tub of ice cream, sappy love movies and my best friend -- a true cliché of young heartbreak -- kept me company when I thought I was going to die. I had never felt so sick, so lost, so alone and rejected.

EXCLUSIVE: DoSomething.org Inspires Animal Adoption With 'Pics for Pets'

(1) Comments | Posted September 20, 2012 | 4:36 PM

Three weeks ago, my family adopted a new member. His name is Phelpsy... or something. Though his name seems to change each week, he joins a household of three other animals -- a dog and two cats -- who were also homeless before we found them (or they found us).

New York Fashion Week: Where Couture and Catwalks Meet Chaos

"You either know fashion or you don't," according to Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.

I, alternatively, would like to think fashion and I are neither friends nor foes -- more along the lines of acquaintances that run in the same circles... like Facebook friends who may or may not wish...

Sharing More than Attention with Siblings

I have a twin... sort of. He's taller, blonder and better at math than me. He's also nine years my junior.

My birthday is April 2. On the morning of my ninth year, in true day-late April Fool's fashion, Andrew was born.

Not only do we share a...

We Can All Relate to Jersey Shore Cast

Jersey Shore: Two words that ignite controversy, YouTube impersonations and fist pumps.

Here's the situation: In May 2010, US Weekly magazine asked me to interview the eight self-proclaimed "guidos" and "guidettes" who have taken over Seaside Heights, N.J., Miami Beach, Florence, Italy, and the world.

Interview the cast that pulled...
