“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot an the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”
—Charles Dickens

While it may have been one of those March days that Charles Dickens spoke of, it is the official first day of Spring! and we’re excited about pink blossoms on trees in the city and bright sunny days, flowering hedges and awaking early, pink kitten heels and shimmery bomber jackets, duchess-satin wrap coats and soft suede mules—here are a few favourite things on our SPRING shopping list . . .

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

from the last verse of the poem If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda

Five Beauty Counters in New York City

The holidays are here! In New York, giant snowflakes adorn Fifth Avenue, the leaves are at their golden and crimson height, windows are being dressed, and soon snow will transform Central Park into a winter wonderland.

There are more visitors than usual in Manhattan during this time of year. Inevitably, I will be asked for directions to Sephora or Glossier.

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

NOVEMBER IS ALWAYS a bittersweet time, for it was on a chilly morning in early November in a city far away that we lost our sweet Dalmatian. She was a rescue whom we adopted when she was just three months old and was a grand old fifteen when she died. It’s a very long time for a Dalmatian to live, we were told, but forever would not have been long enough. That was two cities and six years ago this month. We say bittersweet, because she lived a long, happy life and we had the privilege of knowing her for most of it. And it’s also bittersweet because the year is coming to an end, but there are still so many things to look forward to and so many beautiful reasons to be happy. Hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a perfect start.

Every now and then, due to some egregious blunder or blatant overreach on the part of government agencies or tech companies, concerns about surveillance and technology break out beyond the confines of academic specialists and into the public consciousness: the Snowden leaks about the NSA in 2013, the Facebook emotional manipulation study in 2014, the Cambridge Analytica scandal in the wake of the 2016 election.
