Springing into flower

Springtime often has me in one of two places – laying on the ground to get a good look at a spring bulb in flower or staring up toward the sky at the tree buds just opening. From the highest highs to the lowest lows, the slow warming of the soil calls the bravest of blossoms to open. I’m so glad they heed the call. We all could use some flowers right about now.  The picture featured at the top is of one of our earliest daffodils (Narcissus ‘Ice Follies’). This particular group is blooming i...

Create Springtime Art with Simple Origami Tulips

We made a little ode-to-tulips art project with some super-simple paper origami tulips. With only a few folds, this is a great origami project for young kids and origami novices (like me!) Not only are they fun to make, they are such a fun display for a spring time craft! Every spring, I love seeing tulips pop up in my yard. It seems like I always forget about them – such a colorful surprise! If you can get your hands on an inexpensive pack of origami paper, it’s the best for doing paper foldin...

5 Tips on Making Curls Stay in Any Hair Type (Even Yours!)

Given the number of rollers, curling irons, and flatirons on the market designed to curl hair, you'd think by now getting long-lasting waves would be easy.

The good news is there are actually some very simple ways to stop your curls from dropping or falling out completely and make them last longer than a few hours. Whether yo...

Copy the Colorful Neon Eye Makeup Trend This Spring With These 4 Products

If red carpet beauty and recent trending TV shows mean anything, the neon eye makeup trend is not going anywhere anytime soon. Whether its neon graphic liner, vibrant eye shadow, or mermaid tears (AKA a pop of color in the inner corners of the eyes) the beauty trend allows for self expression and creativity unlike any other - that's probably why so many people can't get enough of it. But if you've never experimented with neon makeup before, your collection may be severely lacking in options - a...

March tease

Almost 70 . Yesterday. Ha, like me! Rain, sun, wind, fog. No snow. That's coming next along with cold. The Japanese Andromeda bloomed. Must have been overnight. Reminding me that life goes on even when it doesn't. New York, they say, now has 40% of all cases in the country. The car won't start, even after replacing the battery. The small repair shop within walking distance, a loooong walk, is thankfully still open. We'll see.  I saw my first groundhog this morning. He comes to ...

Around Paris

A mix of photos taken around Paris, as usual. I saw this fitting sunset the morning I found out a friend of mine died back in the States. A side entrance for employees into the Louvre Museum. A fountain in the Palais Royal. The water doesn’t run in the winter. A side entrance into the garden. Outdoor art installation. Spring is here! As are many in the world, we are practicing isolation. They will now give you a ticket if you are outside unless you h...

It's Not

N ot life as usual, although I can pretend. Life is flashing before my eyes. I am not focused on anything in particular. I probably posted this pic before. It's Dad and me. It hangs over my table now. I think of Dad in Spring. Yes, his birthday is around now but it is the season, the garden, the simple love of life that bring him here to me. How he was right about so many simple things. I remember him saying, "Everything is just growing". I remember him as a blanket. So many bits and pie...

Honey Cheesecake with Pecan Crust

I always love the opportunity to add a cheese plate to a meal. I particularly enjoy cheese plates that include a little honey or honeycomb with the cheese, adding a sweet contrast to some of the funkier or saltier cheeses on the plate. This Honey Cheesecake with Pecan Crust is inspired by a cheese plate! The rich cheesecake is made with honey to give it a deep sweetness that contrasts well with the tang of cream cheese, while the pecan crust adds a slightly savory crunch for a texture that sets...

Alexa Demie on Being Everyone's New Favorite Makeup Muse: "I'm Not Mad"

For the 25 years I've been on this planet, I never once had the innate urgency to bedazzle my eyelid crease with tiny rhinestones. Then, around some time last August, I watched Euphoria and was introduced to Maddy Perez, played by Alexa Demie. Almost all at once I, along with a vast majority of my generation, became eager to craft the most experimental makeup looks we could dream up. While most of the credit for that goes to the show's creator Sam Levinson and makeup department head Doniella Da...

If your hands are feeling particularly dry right now, this one is for you. Despite following a diligent skincare routine morning and night, many of us neglect to give our hands some much-needed TLC. Did you know many dermatologists recommend applying the same products that you use on your face to the backs of your hands? While you may not be down to do an eight-step skincare routine on your hands just yet, you should be moisturizing them every day - multiple times a day, in fact - to keep them f...
