EDITOR'S JOURNAL: Welcome to the issue

Soren Kierkegaard once said: "life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced." Too often life is lived on emergency mode, putting out fires left and right without taking the time to stop and think. If your alloted 24 hours seem too short to get through your to do list, chances are you need a new to do list. Check out our Currently Reading: Book of the Month recommendation. It focuses on time management and organization, something we could all use a little bit more of.

After you read this book and implement all its helpful tips, you'll have all this discretionary time. We suggest you spend some of it with us and spoil yourself a little! After a challenging sartorial month of April, the month of May comes as a sweet relief. One can look forward to the tank top, maxi dress and shorts wearing days ahead! Check out our Trend Watch, Style File and Just Because We Love It posts for advice on how to wear this season's hottest looks and hues!

Speaking of HOT! Our Designer Watch feature is one of New York's biggest fashion powerhouses and knows a thing or two about hot design: Donna Karan. Join us as we take a closer look at her career, brands and giving heart. Also on the hot-o-meter, Jake Gyllenhaal will be visiting us in Chit Charity. Find out how this hunk is giving back!

Just a thought...

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in other; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
