Years ago when I lived in Paris, one of my favorite resto's was this weird Fondue place called  Le Refuge des Fondus in Montmarte. It's dingy and has long communal tables and the only thing on the menu is Fondue, and wine served in baby bottles! Classy. It's a real tourist trap, but loads of fun, and now there is one opening in NYC, right in my neighborhood! I do love cheese, so I'm super excited to try the copy cat Cave des Fondus, located...

I had an action packed whirlwind of a weekend in London, where I attended the first ever London based BUST Craftacular! I arrived Friday and went immediately to Top Shop to scope it out. It was sort of a much bigger and trendier H+M, and not as cheap, but they did have alot of cool stuff. I can't wait for it to come to NYC-hurry up, man! Then I met up with our old pal Sheila B and the two lovely girls who put on...

Now that the cold season is upon us, it's time that I share my very favorite cold-fighting remedy with y'all: the amazing super-easy magical garlic soup! My BFF told me about this at least 15 years ago, and I've been making it ever since whenever I come down with a nasty case of the sneezies. The basis of its magic is the fact that it's a pain-free way to get a ton of raw garlic into your system, and, according to garlic-central.com (garlic-central.com??!!!), 'Scientific research...

I will be cobbling my costume together tonight with McGruber like dexterity in hopes to get out the door in time to take the kids trick-or-treating and then go see the Heloise and the Savoir Faire and Bryan Scary show in Brooklyn. I'm going as Tippi Hedren from The Birds, and I'm torn whether to go as the before or after Tippy. The after (with bandages) is more dramatic, but the birds were finished pecking by the time she got that bandage on,...
