I was having dinner downtown with a few friends yesterday and one of them showed me this absolutely incredible Volvo ad. It looks fake, but it’s not! Those trucks are actually moving backwards – I sh*t you not. I hardly recognized Jean-Claude Van Damme, his face looks so, uhm, altered. Pretty impressive though, I must say.
It sounds like he says he’s been down his fair share of dumpy roads, no? LOL It’s also pretty funny how much he talks himself up… Body crafted to perfection? I mean, come on! 😉

A few days ago, I went to a Gilt event, where Zac Posen had designed a car (apparently, silver is the new cool color for cars). I was standing near him and the pro photographer (Sean Smith) asked if he could take a photo of us together. I said “No way”, of course — JK! Anyhow, Zac and I chatted for a few minutes (he seemed very down to earth and approachable) before the orchestrators at Gilt decided to open the proverbial barn doors and let everyone stampede into the sale area.
Now, you’d expect a Gilt sale to be super amazing, right? I’d imagined racks of designer clothing, in perfect shape, at rock-bottom prices. But no, actually. Read more

I went to see the new movie “Dallas Buyers Club” on Friday night, and man was I impressed! This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. Knockout cast, amazing (& true!) story, and emotionally riveting. We decided to go to the movies because of the great review it got in Rolling Stone magazine (I always rely on them for music and movie suggestions). Normally, we like to stay home and watch movies on Hulu or Netflix (that Roku was soooo worth it), but the reviews told me I had to see it right away. And boy was I right! Read more

About an hour ago, at 9 AM, I went for a little walk to the Green Bean to get my interns some organic vegan muffins (they are so delicious!) On the way, I must have heard about five different kids screaming for one reason or another. Now, I know that having (or not having, rather) kids is a delicate subject. But here’s the thing: I think I would be a lot happier being childless. I like my life how it is. I don’t want it to change. My marriage is a happy one, and I don’t usually subscribe to this philosophy, but if it ain’t broke, why fix it?
Don’t get me wrong — I wanted kids until I was 30. Then I realized that I live in NYC where marriage-minded men are scarce, and marriage-minded men that would click with me (I may be easy to get along with, but let’s be real – I’m a strong woman) and my values and genuinely love me felt like finding a needle on an island of haystacks. So I started thinking: what would I do if I didn’t meet my soul mate? So being 30 and single in NYC forced be to evaluate my life. What did I really want, and how did I know that’s what I really want? And most importantly: why do I want that?
What I came up with is this: Read more

New York is a magical place. There are very few cities where you can have such diverse, random and wonderful experiences. Thursday night was a perfect example.
We started out the night at Cinderella on Broadway. I wasn’t sure what to expect, after all, I’ve never been a big fan of Disney. Even when I was a child I thought that the concept of being ‘saved’ by marrying a wealthy man was a dangerous message to send out to young girls. So I was happy to see that the modern Cinderella has several twists I didn’t remember… Read more
