Why I should never be allowed out…..during a work day

Even though my office is located across the street from a Macy’s department store, I exhibit extreme willpower. I never run across the street for a quick shopping trip. I resist temptation, and I sit contently at my desk and plow away. However, if I have to go on an outing, well, frankly, I lose all control. Yesterday I had to visit a client in Manhattan for a 10:00 meeting. My train got in way before the meeting time, so I leisurely walked the city streets. Since it was early, not many stores were yet open. However, next to my client there was a discount beauty supply store....more

If You Take a Picture of Me Eating on the Subway, I Will Punch You In The Face.

Check this shit out: Train Pigs.Sometimes, I wait too long to eat. It's a little compulsive and unhealthy. But, it usually means, if I buy food, I need to it immediately. Sometimes, that happens on the subway. And, I assure you, every single time, I will not want you to take a picture of me. So, if I catch you, I will punch you in the fucking face....more

I’m originally from a beautiful island in the Caribbean that in due time I will reveal, just trying to avoid stereotypes. I have a BBA in Accounting and studying so hard to pass the CPA exam but that’s a very long story....more

Calling all NYC mommies... chocolate & wine next Tuesday, 3/9

Two days ago, I wrote this post about fitting into my old jeans again (woohoo!) and today, my friends, I want to talk about chocolate. Yummy, dark, delicious chocolate. Yes, I realize the juxtaposition, but I feel strongly about the idea of "everything in moderation." Life is way too short to not treat yourself to little indulgences every once in a while... ...more

Mama knows best. Girlphyte....more

IVF and the Newlywed: Lost and Found

Lost and Found Sometimes things are too fresh, too green. You can’t talk about them until they settle. That’s how I was feeling this weekend.
