Subway Etiquette

It never ceases to amaze me what people think is appropriate behavior in public.

Please join me on this archival journey as I try to make sense of my mind. Publications such as Glamour, Vogue, Elle, In Style, Marie Claire, and Beautylish (there’s my resume) have trusted my expertise for over a decade—I hope you will too.
