No shop, jewelry, or social media talk today. This month makes ONE YEAR since I went out for a walk one Monday morning and I started to jog! I haven't talked about it lately but I'm still on this fitness kick going out just about every morning to go walking/jogging/running, I wish there was one word to describe what I do..."WaJoRu?" Sure why not? My cardio has gotten SO much better! I was worried I might be pushing myself too... Read more →

Yeah buddy! While every day is a National "Something" Day, please believe I keep track of the "coffee" day! Dear Coffee, You know I can't quit you Baby! I may go through days where I drink less of you because it's messing up my sleep, but I always come back. Tea is nice.....but it's not you. Drinking a chai tea still does not feel like a warm hug assuring me "You're gonna have a good day." Only you can do... Read more →

It appears that when I go for my July visits to the city, a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art is in order. This year's big fashion exhibit is China: Through The Looking Glass and it was stunning. It depicts how traditional Chinese design has impacted on Western fashion over the years. A truly inspiring exhibit which is also pretty big as it takes up three floors of the museum. The exhibit ends September 7th so if you're planning... Read more →

Last weekend was crazy busy full of fun stuff but one of the highlights was getting to check out the latest Shag art exhibit at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. I am such a huge fan of Josh Agle ("Shag") and make it a point to see whatever shows he has going on in New York. His work is colorful, it's retro, it's kitsch, lots of it is very tongue-in-cheek, and some with dark humor. His work is perfection in my... Read more →

I'm in the middle of planning our city visit this weekend and that planning involves what we can do without spending much money. We are usually in the Hell's Kitchen and Chelsea area when we're in town and while New York can be expensive, your stay doesn't have to be. This post is going to be FULL of links to older posts because I tend to write about our stays a lot. We sleep on my parents couch so we... Read more →

Do you love Mad Men? Are you sad to see it all come to an end this season? I do love me some Don Draper. As my loving tribute, I wanted to dedicate a post to the JEWELRY of Mad Men. I consider mid-century style and personal design inspiration for Pulp Sushi jewelry so I hope you enjoy what I've put together today. Pearls! Lots and lots of pearls. Big pearls, small pearls, pearl necklaces, pearl earrings. Still very popular... Read more →

I have a Kindle Fire HD 7 which I got a couple of years ago on a whim when Amazon was offering a ridiculous Cyber Monday sale. I didn't know if I was going to get into ebooks since I love reading books so much but it won me over. It's especially comfy to read when I'm laying in bed, which seems to be when I do most of my reading - at the end of the day before I... Read more →

Out of all the super hot social media platforms, Instagram continues to grow and has beat out Facebook and Twitter in popularity amongst the young folk. I love it! I didn't know what I was doing with it at first but it's now something I look at several times a day. Today I wanted to show off some of my favorite Instagram accounts, not to say I don't enjoy them all, otherwise I wouldn't follow them. Before I do that,... Read more →

This fashion "trend" has been going on for a few years now and I don't think it's going to go away any time soon. I'm talking about Ugly Christmas Sweaters. In the beginning, I was amused, then it got too big and I thought it was getting lame, but I've embraced it and will probably end up with one next year. But I can't just have any tacky-ass sweater, it's still gotta have a darker undertone to it. Click image... Read more →
