Originally from Chicago, I moved to NYC in April 2001. Being here during the events of 9/11 cemented my bond to the city, and I’ve been living on the UWS for most of the past 10 years. I have a tremendous amount of affection for this neighborhood, and want to use this blog to showcase style, fashion, shopping,and life on the Upper West Side.
I’m a pediatric nurse practitioner and the mother of two boys. I love fashion, and am the beauty editor at Fashionista.com. I’ve contributed to other sites like Elle.com, Salon.com, and the Westside Independent. Writing is my second act.
I hope you enjoy this foray into my neighborhood. It may not be the hippest or most interesting one in NYC, but it’s the one that I love the most.
