Tweet Last night, I went to see gorgeous singer/songwriter Nicole Collins perform at Sidewalk Cafe. When she’s not on stage, Nicole is the director of communications at ProPublica, MrB’s organization. That job apparently attracts musical people!  In 2012, I went to see former communications director Mike Webb perform in Brooklyn. Here’s Nicole performing one of […]

Tweet MrB keeps asking me, “Who’s your hero?” So far, he’s refrained from answering his own question by indicating himself with both thumbs and saying, “This guy!” That shows how nice he is because he is entitled to do the thumb thing after getting us tickets to attend watch-company G-Shock’s 30th anniversary party in New […]

Tweet A week ago today, I was enjoying my annual Pimm’s Fest with my gorgeous London blogger friends. The fest started in 2008, when I met up with Sharon of Thrift My Style and the lovely lady behind the since-abandoned Times of Glory blog to shop Trudie Styler’s castoffs (why didn’t I buy more?! I’ve […]
