Peppermint Pedicure

I’m making a holiday visit to see family in New York and spoke to my six-year-old goddaughter the other day. Mary has already lined up many activities for the visit, from baking cookies to giving me a pedicure. Yes, that’s right. The six-year-old version of a pedicure involves massaging feet with lotion and polishing a topcoat of color on already-polished toes. As with any pedicure, I like the massage part the best, and I’m packing my own products for the job.

Designer Scarves: Wrapped Up in a Cause

The scarf is a staple in my wardrobe, no matter the season. I find that wrapping a vintage silk one around my neck or tying it to the handle of a handbag adds just the right touch (and sometimes makes me feel very French-chic). And, of course, a long, cashmere one adds just the right amount of warmth.

For the Love of Reconstructed Tees

I am a big fan of Project Runway, and I become afflicted with something I call “Project Runway Syndrome” at the start of each season. What happens is that I suddenly become convinced of the fact that I, too, can be a fashion designer. I pull out my amateur box of sewing materials—basically needles and thread and sharp fabric scissors—and I take items from my closet that need some work. I have also visited my local thrift store for old T-shirts to doctor (remember, reusing old clothing is a form of recycling and keeps discarded clothing out of landfills). It’s usually T-shirts. I’m proud to say that I worked wonders on an old R.E.M. concert shirt but some of my other efforts were less successful.

A Solution for Gift-Giving Angst

A friend called me up the other day, and I immediately detected panic in her voice. “I have so much to do!” she said. “Are you done with your holiday shopping yet? What do you want me to get you? Why don’t YOU sound stressed?”
