Read: Superficial - More Adventures from The Andy Cohen Diaries

I am a huge Andy Cohen fan. Not just because he is the production mastermind behind The Real Housewives franchise, but because we are both celebrity-obsessed, ruled by the current mood of our dogs and have very, how shall I say this. . . vocal, Jewish mothers.

Movie Musings: Beatriz at Dinner

I had plans to go to Nantasket Beach with a friend on Saturday, but when we woke up that morning, it was clear Mother Nature had something else in mind. The forecast for the day was for clouds, fog and more fog.

Explore: Boston Public Market

I have been wanting to visit the Boston Public Market since before it even opened. I followed every stage of the process - the proposal to the city, the approvals, the build and the grand opening - yet I never made it! To force myself to get down there, I made a visit to the Boston Public Market one of my 2017 New Year's resolutions.

Explore: Brooklyn Botanic Garden

My family has always loved spending time outdoors, particularly in beautiful gardens and parks. When I was very little, my mom's request every year for Mother's Day was to go to Lilac Sunday at the Arnold Arboretum.

Stream: Mad Men (Season 1)

I never watched Mad Men when it originally aired (2007 - 2015), but Netflix has been recommending it to me for over a year. I recently finished Girlboss and was poking around for a new binge when the show popped up again. I decided to finally give it a go.

Shop: Scent Trunk

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved perfume. My grandmother used to keep all of her glass bottles on display on her dresser. Each one seemed so luxurious with its sleek design and colored cap. She kept them on a thin, rectangular mirror, which only made them seem even more special and glamorous.

Listen: How I Built This

I don't consider myself a podcast person. I never listened to Serial or S-Town, and I don't have go-to shows for my commute or plane rides. In fact, I've been pretty resistant to the whole podcast fad in general. The one exception is NPR's How I Built This.

Stream: GIRLBOSS (Season 1)

At the recommendation of a coworker, I decided to stream GIRLBOSS, the Netflix show based on the book #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso, the creator of Nasty Gal. Amoruso released her book on my birthday (September 29) in 2015, clearly a sign she was destined for greatness.

Stream: Catastrophe (Season 3)

On Friday, April 28 Amazon released season three of the romantic comedy Catastrophe. I flew through season one and season two in August of last year, clamoring for more episodes.
