Dich hat das düstere Ende von Netflix’ Things Heard & Seen verwirrt? Lass es uns erklären

Things Heard And Seen: (L-R) James Norton, as George Clare, Amanda Seyfried as Catherine Clare. Cr. Anna Kooris/NETFLIX © 2020.

How to Use Bitters to Elevate Your Drinks

There are five elements of flavor in any dish or drink: sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami. (Those first four are pretty self-explanatory; umami is a somewhat elusive term that basically means “savory.”) The best flavor experiences combine as many of those elements as possible; while some are sure to stick out — in a cake, it’s no doubt the sweetness — the others can provide a much needed complement so that no single component is overpowering. In that same cake, there’s assuredly a touch of sal...

Waking up to New York: secrets of the world's most famous women-only hotel

From Grace Kelly to Joan Crawford and Sylvia Plath… Many of the residents of the Barbizon hotel went on to change the worldThe Barbizon guest list reads as a who’s who of Hollywood and literary royalty. Grace Kelly, Joan Crawford, Tippi Hedren, Liza Minnelli, Ali MacGraw, Jaclyn Smith and literary stars Sylvia Plath and Joan Didion were among the household names who arrived as young unknowns. So it’s surprising that we’ve heard so little about it. While New York’s rock’n’roll Chelsea hotel has b...

Is it time to decriminalize prostitution? Two New York bills answer yes in unique ways

Today in the majority of the United States, it is a crime to sell sex, buy it, or promote its sale. The Sex Trade Survivors Justice & Equality Act would decriminalize prostitution in New York state while maintaining punitive measures against buyers and pimps. Opponents suggest this law would only push the illegal sex trade further underground and seek full decriminalization for everyone involved. Although incorrectly labeled the world's oldest profession, prostitution has been on the minds of l...

How Much Do You Save If You Live Abroad?

One of the retirement options that I often think about is whether it makes sense for me to retire overseas one day. Being born in Asia and then growing up in Canada, there are quite a few places that attract our family on many levels. For one, we have many family and friends all over the globe. In fact, there are more friends and family of ours living in Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Canada than where I live. Moving to any of these places wouldn’t be much of an adjustment because the connections we hav...

Which of James Anderson’s near-identical reverse-swinging clean bowleds from the same over was the better?

“I didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary,” said Jimmy Anderson about an over that featured one of the finest clean-bowleds you’re ever likely to see, then another one that may or may not have been better, plus an LBW shout that could legitimately have been given sandwiched in between. It’s safe to say Jimmy has his own version of ‘ordinary’ these days. You could forgive Anderson for going all Dr Manhattan and feeling like he doesn’t have much in common with humanity any more. Maybe ...

What’s Your Worst Zoom Meeting Beauty Moment? Here’s Mine!

The pandemic has brought about the work at home revolution and you know what? I think it’s here to stay! It’s actually not something I can do on the daily and at some point I will have to go back to work as I see clients daily but I can see some companies just leaving a lot of their work force at home. It’s actually pretty cost efficient especially when you consider the prices of rent on offices here in Manhattan. Working at home is actually pretty fun as you can walk around the house all da...

L’Occitane Files for Bankruptcy

News broke today that L’Occitane has filed for bankruptcy but don’t panic quite yet as the brand is still thriving in Internationally and this does not extend to Elemis.

„Driften“: Warum es okay ist, manchmal einfach keinen Plan zu haben

Endlich 2021: ein neues Jahr, ein Neubeginn. Damit ist auch 2020 endlich vorbei. Jetzt ist die Zeit gekommen, um in die Zukunft zu blicken und Vorsätze zu fassen. Was ist aber, wenn das einfach nicht dein Ding ist? Was, wenn du es bevorzugst, im Hier und Jetzt zu leben? Als meine Frau zum Beispiel befördert wurde und wir von Manhattan nach Toronto zogen, habe ich mich einfach damit abgefunden. Nach sechs Monaten denke ich manchmal noch hie und da: „Ha, ich lebe jetzt wirklich hier. Wer hät...

Experience: I fell in love in an Uber

I jumped in the cab to find a tall handsome stranger sitting in the backIt was a beautiful spring day in Manhattan in May 2016. The air was crisp and the skies were blue, so I decided to walk across town to meet a friend for lunch. I had gone only a few blocks when what felt like a tornado hit: my light coat was no match for the heavy rain; my hair blew in 10 directions, and garbage hit me in the face. I tried to hail a cab, but there weren’t any. Uber prices were surging, so I decided to take a...
