Staten Island Ferry: The Ultimate Skyline View Of Lower Manhattan


I remember when it was only 25 cents to ride the Staten Island Ferry. And I also remember when they allowed passenger cars on the ferry. But that stopped after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Over the years of course, like everything in New York City, the price of the ferry ride gradually increased.

Yet, every once in a while New York will offer certain things for free. Such as climbing the Vessel at Hudson Yards, which I did back in March, and also no longer charging to ride the Staten Island Ferry, which I think is awesome.

Now, my only wish and fantasy is that one day New York will offer free subway rides.

Which I think will always remain a fantasy because that's just NOT going to happen.

And speaking of subways, I remember when it was only 55 cents for a SingleRide on the subway. Now it's $3.00.

Yeah, New York is expensive. And gets more expensive with every passing minute.

So when they offer something for free, I'll jump at the chance.

63-Year Old International Model, Yazemeenah Rossi, Epitomizes Grace, Authenticity, and Timeless Beauty


I first discovered Yazemeenah Rossi while on Instagram and immediately said out loud to myself, "WOW...what a STUNNING woman!" And it wasn't just because of the way she looked, but also (and even more so) about the energy she exuded. I could literally see a bright light shinning from within her.

After perusing her Instagram feed I visited her website, where I found a plethora of information about her background, her work, her outlook on life and aging, and her social entrepreneurship. She lives a very active and diverse life.

She was born in 1955, the same year I was born. Therefore, we're exactly the same age (63). And it's ironic too, because after reading about her and then listening to her speak in several interviews, I realized that she and I share the same outlook about life and aging.

We both enjoy living different lives within the same life.

We not only accept age, but we celebrate it because we view it as something that's attractive and valuable.

And we also share a mutual love of photography that began when we were children.

Let The Bitchfest Begin!


Before I begin my bitchfest, I want to talk about my favorite gesture.

The middle finger.

OMG...I LOVE IT MORE THAN MY OWN LIFE!

I love it because it's so expressive and all encompassing. And I also love it because you never actually have to open your mouth and say the words, the gesture says it for you.

It's kinda like using sign language.

And the reason I'm even talking about "the gesture" is because I used it a lot in the past month since resigning from my previous job.

Okay, so let's begin...

Update On My New Website/Blog For My Personal Shopper Business


Okay, first I have to say that I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy that I resigned from my previous job which, can you believe, was almost a month ago?!? And I'll explain the reasons for that happiness and what's been going on in a future post. Let's just say that I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. That job slowly became a toxic working environment. So much so that in the past year, six people resigned.

Anyway, I'll talk more about that later.

But for right now, I'm excited to share the new website/blog that I've been working on for over a week. And let me tell you, it has been tons of fun, but also SO. MUCH. FREAKING. WORK.

Oy vey!

Before I actually uploaded the new template and began customizing it, I spent days transferring 26 posts that I had posted on this blog over to my new blog because I thought they would be ideal post topics for the blog section of my new website. I didn't want to launch my new website without any posts. However, I didn't realize how old some of those posts were because almost every single product link that I originally published on those posts were dead links. So, I had to go back online and search for different product links that would match those posts. OH MY GOD....by the second day I wanted to kill myself with a pitch-fork because it took FOREVER. Yet, I persevered and got it done.
