My weekends are all looking the same lately – brunch, Christmas shopping and errands. Instead of telling you about more of the same, I thought I’d share something beautiful I did last week – Christmas shopping for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The toy-shopping spree with actress and philanthropist Marlo Thomas was an inspiring […]
Technology is infiltrating every aspect of our lives, so it’s no surprise that it’s making an appearance in healthcare.

It seems as if the weekends are going just as quickly as they’re coming these days. While I had grandiose plans to decorate for the holidays and finish all our Christmas shopping, that didn’t happen. Instead, we got a few decorations up, checked out the newly refurbished Beekman Hotel and had brunch with out of […]
When it comes to gift-giving, I love giving (and receiving) gift sets. I may be the odd one out here, but I think they’re curated and packaged thoughtfully and presentably and it gives the receiver an opportunity to discover products from a brand the gift-giver loves. So today I’m rounding up a few of my […]
