Sun or Shade?: "Smart" Sun – for a healthy dose of Vitamin D
The Color of Summer 2010: Cool Grey – such a refreshing alternative to summer white
All Time Favorite Vacation:
Weekends in Sag Harbor to appreciate every moment of the summer. Morocco for the true getaway, preferably in September when things calm down.
