Are you an avid reader of The New York Times popular "36 Hours" column? Either way, Taschen's The New York Times, 36 Hours: 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada is a must have as it captures 150 U.S. and Canadian locations, with so many small towns steeped in history and quaint charm...yay! I think my weekend bag will get a lot of use this year.
I am looking for vintage and that means aesthetically pleasing to the eye...not just circa 1945. "Daily Memorandum" was created based on the owners’ weakness for Pennsylvania-made objects...think vintage chairs, apothecary bottles. Quality is important, but looks are first priority. If you are in the Philadelphia area, swing by...soon they will be located in a rehabbed shirt factory!
Polka dots are a hit for fall...I adore Jcrew's line of sweaters, pants and shoes...take your pick, they will all look great...I wore the polka dot blouse below on an architectural boat cruise and I am not sure what was getting more attention...the skyline or Me!!
Who wouldn't want to experience these ten culinary treats at the world's best pop-up restaurants...Often, but not always, publicized on Twitter (see the hashtag #popup), Foursquare and Instagram, they usually take over preexisting spaces like a park, a rooftop, a plaza or an existing restaurant or gallery...but hurry, your favorite restaurant could be here today and gone tomorrow...
Summer is finally upon us, and there is nothing that screams summer like lemonade with a twist...or really a bunch...a bunch of thyme that is. Grab your favorite glass pitcher, and serve over ice for a refreshing beverage.
1. Bring 1 bunch thyme and 1 1/2 cups each sugar and water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
2. Let cool, then strain the syrup into an ice-filled pitcher. Stir in 2 cups each fresh lemon juice and cold water.
3. Serve over ice with thyme sprigs and lemon slices.
The Ivy League by Daniel Cappello gives readers a glimpse of the style and architecture of students and buildings alike that give each institution a distinct personality. I love the way the rich history of the campus and the style of the students is intertwined...

Get ready to fill your glass as you venture on to tour the World's best distilleries. From the hills of Kentucky to greens of Scotland, these ten tours are worth the travel from the history of the towns to a spirit’s lineage, place in history and production.
