TGIF! What are your weekend plans? We're heading out the city once again, to Orient, NY, for a little beach combing. We're so grateful for generous friends with summer houses! If you haven't already,  make sure to check out the latest Thought Pharmacy this weekend, and if you're interested in taking part, please send me an email with your problem to I've been overwhelmed with the many kind words that you've thrown my way since starting the series, and am thrilled to be bringing you guys another post next Thursday. Look out too for a new series of The Street Where You Live, coming real real soon. Have a gorgeous one, all you babes out there.
