The West Village is refreshing for more reasons than its frozen yogurt joints

Last night I had my birthday dinner with my family, in the city of course. We ate at a delicious restaurant in the West Village called La Ripaille.

Although I lack … Continue reading Project Runway Season 10: Who’s in and who’s out?

My Long Island high school is extremely diverse.
