Barney's Warehouse Sale - Save the Date

The below ad says it all. My advice is that whenever you do make it to the sale carry a small bottle of water and a snack bar because it can get intense and it will not be cute to pass out in the middle of a sale - you might get stepped on:

Directions: Take the 1 to 18th street.


Ask For Helen...

As much as there are many nail salons throughout NYC I still find it challenging to find one that does a good job. I've tried several places ranging from salons I saw on the street to ones that made it on someone's "Best in New York City" list. Today my two favorite spa/salons have been consistently good for quite sometime now. What I love about them is they are the perfect medium between a full fancy spa and a neighborhood walk-in spot. They are not pretentious but offer great service to everyone:

6th Avenue between 26th and 27th street
Note: Ask for Helen, she takes her time to make sure every nail bed is clean and polished perfectly.

14th Street between Union Square West and Fifth Avenue
Note: Ask for Lilly and get the smoothing pedicure if you can
