An Unexpected Adventure and Learning Lesson

February 01, 2016

0 Comments


Since moving to New York, we began a tradition of flying south. For a few years in a row it was to various spots in Florida, and then we finally decided this year to try a completely new destination.

After throwing around ideas, we ultimately chose Bermuda as our destination of choice. As neither of us have been there and JetBlue flew non-stop, it seemed like the way to go.

Once we arrived at the airport, the flight was on-time and looking good. Thirty minutes before departure, we heard an announcement that our flight was delayed due to weather in Bermuda. 

Roughly twenty minutes later, our flight was cancelled.

We now had a choice. Do we simply go back to the city to enjoy our long weekend, or do we swap our tickets for the next flight out?

The latter is just what we did.

And, before we knew it, we were headed to the Bahamas.

On previous trips and more specifically with our now cancelled Bermuda trip, we had our entire itinerary all laid out, from the ferries we would take to the bikes we would rent. Of course there was room for changes, but we had a game plan.

What this Bahamas trip offered instead was an opportunity to let go and just roll with what happened, starting with the hotel.

Do we stay at the well-known Atlantis or do we try something else?

We ended up choosing the latter, and although we thought we may regret the choice, we once again found the excitement in the unknown.

From walking the town and seeing local sites to eating Italian at a restaurant that could easily rival those found in New York City, it was as much of an adventure as it was a lesson in letting go and being open for what comes your way.

Although our trip was short, it was sweet, and although Bermuda is still on our must-visit list, you can expect we'll return back to Bermuda.

P.S. I have to add that especially on such a whirlwind trip, it was just a long weekend, some Adea Layering Tops and Adea Undies should be on your must-pack list. You know I have a soft spot for bodysuits and this is not an exception.

Living Way “Below” One’s Income

February 20, 2020

I’ve never liked cheapskates. I once worked with a guy who – when we went out to lunch – would make sure he only paid for what he ordered. And when it came to figuring the tax he made sure the other person paid the extra penny. The result was that, instead of just “splitting the bill” there was a lot of bookkeeping and figuring going on. After awhile no one would go out with him.

The Museum of Modern Art: A $450 Million Upgrade

February 12, 2020 1 Comment

On November 1, 2019, I decided to visit MoMA on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues to see the final result of this stupendous project that opened for all to see on October 21st. Frankly, I was amazed at the number of people who showed up. After all, it was a Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm. People should be at work – or at school I thought. Or, was it because this was the day after Halloween? Obviously, I’m a bit out of it because MoMA was like Times Square on New Year’s Eve – but not quite. Everyone was very well behaved and incredibly focused and interested in the art.

The Movie: Downton Abbey

February 05, 2020

On Tuesday, October 8, 2019 – the first day of Yom Kippur – we headed out to our favorite Kips Bay Theatre (2nd Avenue and 31st Street) for a 6:20 pm showing of Downton Abbey. Kips Bay currently has a terrific deal: If one signs up for an “Insider” card (it’s free) you can see a first run movie at any time during the day or night on Tuesdays for $6.00 – which is pretty incredible. Or, paraphrasing The Godfather, I’d say, “That’s an offer we couldn’t refuse.”

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
