Coffee Talk

I love New York. There is no other city like it in the world, and every day that we get to spend there turns into an adventure.

When I was lucky enough to have a place to stay in Tribeca I started the NYC Lifestylist blog, and I still enjoy writing about the small local places that you might just walk by and never notice. One of the places I always made sure that I visited is Porto Rico Importing Company - a company that has been offering the finest cofees and teas since 1907.

Their birthday sale is always worth shopping and stocking up at, and it's going on right now until October 31st. If you aren't lucky enough to be in NY and can buy at their store you can visit their website and buy online, and there's free shipping for orders over $75.00!

My favorite beans that they sell are Peter's Blend - smooth but with enough substance to it that it wakes me up in the morning.

Happy Birthday Porto Rico from the Lifestylist family!

The Ultimate Lifestylist Has a New Look!

I'm never one that accepts change easily, but when you are as active in the social media world as I am you have to be ready to change or you'll be left behind - quickly.

I'm doing more blogs than ever on Blogger - it has become an easy, inexpensive to get the word out about what we do.  But finding a template that reflected what we do and our "look" has not been easy, and I've spent a lot of money on templates that were too complicated for me to use or just didn't have the look we needed.

After searching one night and getting nowhere I came across a great shop on Etsy - This Girl Design. She offers custom or premade templates, and I love her style and what she offers.

Let me know what you think about our new look!

Meeting Oscar de la Renta

I have been very fortunate to meet a lot of very interesting people, but Lisa Stewart of Lisa Stewart Photography was fortunate enough to meet one of my role models - Oscar de la Renta. He was in Dallas for the Crystal Charity Ball 10 Best Dressed luncheon, and Lisa was photographing the event.

If you want to know what someone is really like - ask a photographer. They see people at their best and worst, and after meeting Oscar de la Renta she couldn't stop talking about how gracious he was. Those are the stories I love hearing. Her photos of the event and of the man himself have always been some of my favorites. The fashion world has lost a very special person that we will all miss.
