Tweet Today is the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, and I’ve been thinking about a decorative-arts museum: the Musée Nissim de Camondo in Paris. That’s not as strange as it might seem, because that museum has a tragic history that has been on my mind for months. I visited the museum in 2010. […]

Tweet I have not yet been to 9/11 Memorial Museum, but acquaintances who have gone photographed a display that tells the story of the Wall Street Journal’s Sept. 12, 2001, issue. That quote across the top — “I want a six-column headline!” — is from MrB. He was the managing editor of the Wall Street […]

Tweet Today is my SEVENTH blogversary! I started this blog on July 23, 2007, by warning that I wouldn’t be blogging much. Two days later, I discovered Britney Spears had “borrowed” one of my rings without permission. I simply had to share that online, and after that, I was unstoppable.  Since then, I’ve written over […]

Tweet My designing friend Zang Toi says his lucky number is 13. I am going to adopt that policy, at least for a year, because today marks the 13th wedding anniversary for MrB and me. We’re traveling today, so we celebrated early, with friends, in the town of Fiskado on the Greek island of Kefalonia. […]

Tweet The most exciting parts of last night’s Super Bowl for me were Joe Namath’s coin toss and Bruno Mars’s halftime show featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The game interested me less than usual — I wasn’t even sure that was possible — and I was underwhelmed by a lot of the ads. Radio […]

Tweet Today is my parents’ 48th wedding anniversary. BarbaraB and GeorgeB got married in 1965 at a place called Leonard’s on Long Island. It’s still there. After the wedding, my mother cut the sleeves off her wedding dress and wore it to someone else’s wedding. “It was a minor trend to wear white to weddings,” […]

Tweet The massive blackout that affected the Northeastern U.S. and part of Canada occurred ten years ago today. I was inspired to reminisce about it during Superstorm Sandy last year. CLICK HERE TO READ MY BLACKOUT STORY.

Tweet Because I dressed to make Zang Toi happy on Sunday night, I figured it was only fair to dress in a way that would make MrB happy at our 12th-anniversary dinner on Monday.  After all, MrB puts up with a lot more from me than Zang has to. I know MrB is a big […]

Tweet Time flies when you’re having fun — and even when you’re not having fun! It’s my sixth blogversary today. To celebrate, I will be lazy: Instead of writing a big post here, allow me to direct you to my latest piece on the Huffington Post, featuring a fashion-blogger slideshow. For a while, I was […]
