Given my recent relationship with work and affair with travel – finding time with friends has taken on new hours.

While the wolves of wall street may be crunching numbers at 7AM, if I’ve planned my day right, I can grab a cup of coffee with a friend to catch-up before I have to be at the office. The funny part about breakfast (instead of the more preferred mimosa filled brunches) is that it’s forced me to become a morning person – when did this happen!?



Call it a mini-indulgence or a “switch to my summer schedule,” but taking time out to enjoy warmer weather and some cold brew with a friend seems to be exactly what mother nature ordered to kick-off a new summer season.

My summer schedule is filled with plenty of sun-filled activities from morning coffees, to walks to work, as soaking up every bit is purely intentional after a rainy spring and cold winter. I still don’t think I’ll ever get over weather below 50 degrees.

Who doesn’t love longer days and warmer nights? More sun time at the beach or pool and has also led to altering my skin routine in the morning to make sure I’m both protected and moisturized in the hotter dryer weather.



Now while I may not need to lather my skin with beach grade protection daily – a little shield to save the shoulders, chest and nose can’t hurt. So to stay protected, my friends at Hawaiian Tropic helped me find the perfect solution – Hawaiian Tropic’s Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion. Equal parts tropical scented heaven and indulgent moisturizer – a great supplement to get me through the day. With New York’s humid weather it also stays water and sweat resistant (40 minutes) just long enough for me to make it the 30 blocks to work.


After all it all comes down to preference – would I rather be red or wear red? I think I’d rather reach in the closet instead of for the aloe don’t you think?
