I have walked down 10th St. between 5th and 6th Ave. in the West Village at least twice a week for the last two years en route to Elizabeth Bauer Design. As much as I think I pay attention to things, apparenlty I don’t. On my walk yesterday (on my last day at the shop), I looked up to find a plaque I never noticed on one of the row house fronts that says, “In this house once lived, Mark Twain” Damn, I love New York. It doesnt matter how long you have lived here, there is always something new to discover. Always.

Everything is a whirlwind these days and two weeks ago during that whirlwind I was representing Mayabags at the Indagare Souk which took place at the Hotel Athenee here in NY. I posted about Mayabags around Christmas time last year because I love, love them. They are handwoven products created by the impoverished Maya women in Belize and in a nutshell the jobs created by these bags lifts them out of poverty (providing them with income to educate their children). Manhattan Luxury Magazine was at the Souk taking pictures for their mag. (pic above). I met some wonderful people, one being Anne Wells who founded and runs, Unite the World With Africa. She is a fabulous lady, doing exceptional things and you should take a look at their site as well. Whether you find something you would like to buy at MayaBags or Unite the World With Africa you will be spreading positive energy from all the good that comes from the sales of these items. Now, that really is happy shopping:)
Journelle – this place just makes me happy. Look at this stuff! It’s simple, pretty, sexy and fun – what more could you want? I think all women should have unlimited bank accounts for lingerie. Can someone please take care of making this happen? It would be so fun…
