Summer 2012

Do you remember summers as a child? It's as if my daughter Julia awakens my childhood memories. I love this picture. Here she is in a pool with her friends. I swear she was a mermaid before. She loves the water. Someone pointed out the little naked baby butt in the background. Reminds me of the Coppertone baby .....

Working from Home By Shani Silver

Chicago Editor's Guide To Working From Home
UPDATE: In the height of the summertime, it's easy for work-from-home-ers to fall prey to the season's many distractions (thanks, Fourth of July!). If you've found yourself feeling uninspired, try these super-easy tips from our very own Chicago ed. This story was originally published on November 2, 2011.
There are certain perks to working from home. Your meetings don't happen in conference rooms, you totally avoid Starbucks (when you want to), and you officially have the shortest commute ever. Not bad. But, if you're not careful, work-from-home positions can also come with legit downsides. If you're the sort of person who easily falls into the Pit of Distraction, there's hope. Click through to read about how I manage to get the job done from my apartment, and learn some of my tips and tricks for staying productive. Want to know if they work? The story you're reading right now was written from home sweet home

1. Set aside one whole room (if the real estate gods have smiled on you) or at least a portion of your home that is all business, and only business. If you start thinking of your bed as a desk, you'll start thinking of your desk as a bed. Duncan Corner Computer Desk, $299.99, available at World Market. White Douglas Desk with Hutch, $259.99, available at World Market. Parsons Mirror Desk, $599, available at West Elm.

2. Commence operation distraction removal. If you spend hours in front of Bravo, HBO, and all their friends, consider canceling those stations. You'll save some cash and you won't be tempted by the Real Housewives of Procrastination. Also be aware of how productive you are while listening to music. Playing music constantly helps some people, and distracts others, so find out which one you are.

3. Exercise! Though it may not seem like it, working from home can drastically reduce the amount of calories you burn in a day. Fight stir craziness and the work-from-home 15 by devoting an hour of your day to getting physical. A gym membership is great, but if you can't swing it, invest in some light weights, an exercise ball, a yoga mat, or all three. Anything to get you moving

Go to  for the rest. There you will find 7 more great ideas!They have a fun and informative site to visit!

Salvatore Ferragamo Green Crocodile Kitten Heels

I love this! The heel and pointy shoe...aweeee......perfect.......
Salvatore Ferragamo and the label’s cool 1970s-style logo are vintage-store staples: few insoles are as recognizable as the one that lines the brand’s shoes, and even fewer shoes feel as stylish and nostalgic, still. Knowing this, the Italian house recently consulted with its archives in Palazzo Spini Feroni in order to reintroduce a select group of crocodile kitten heels — sharp-toed burgundy pumps, slate sling-backs, emerald and chestnut T-strap Mary Janes (that also come in a maroon ostrich skin) and Regency-era lace-ups — with its prefall collection. “What I want to create is accessories and garments that will never lose their allure,” says Ferragamo’s design director Massimiliano Giornetti, “that go beyond trends and can be used for years and years.” True to form, these low-riding lady heels don’t look a day over 20-something when worn with prefall’s chocolate pleated croc miniskirt or disco printed jumpsuit. “What really can be defined as ‘classic’ will never lose an intrinsic message of modernity,” Giornetti says. So spare them the arrivederci‘s, please.
Salvatore Ferragamo green crocodile kitten heels, $4,500. At select Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques; (800) 628-8916.

Ceviche By City Kitchen


 By City Kitchen



Ceviche By Simply Recipes


  • 2 lbs of firm, fresh red snapper fillets (or other firm-fleshed fish), cut into 1/2 inch pieces, completely deboned
  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup of chopped fresh seeded tomatoes
  • 1 serrano chili, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • Dash of ground oregano
  • Dash of Tabasco or a light pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado
  • Tortillas or tortilla chips


In a non-reactive casserole dish, either Pyrex or ceramic, place the fish, onion, tomatoes, chili, salt, Tabasco, and oregano. Cover with lime and lemon juice. Let sit covered in the refrigerator for an hour, then stir, making sure more of the fish gets exposed to the acidic lime and lemon juices. Let sit for several hours, giving time for the flavors to blend.
