MARGO MANHATTAN ROBBED OF 60 GRAND IN BLING

Margo Manhattan With Ramona Singer




Margo Manhattan, a Upper East Side jewelry store, where the celebrities like Beyonce and Selena Gomez flock, was robbed on Friday by a man who tied up the manager and stole $60,000 in bling,


The thief posed as a customer at the star studded store on Madison Ave, off East 88th street. The star studded boutique’s manager, Marcy Imbert, was the only employee in the shop when she buzzed the man in about 1:30 p.m on Friday.



Margo Manhattan told the NY Daily News that the employee "thought he was maybe a rap star,”.



The thief asked to see several items and then grabbed Imbert by the neck once she opened a display case. Brandishing a stun gun, he put his hands over her mouth and dragged her into a back room.



As Imbert struggled, the man tore the straps off a Theory designer bag he found in the shop and used them to tie her wrists behind her back.


“She came to a point where she saw her life in front of her,” said Margo. “He was really forceful. He choked her. He said, ‘I’m going to kill you.’”



The crook even kicked Mika, Manhattan’s 13-week-old German shepherd puppy, who was also at the store.



He to grabbed jewelry from cases Imbert had opened and from an open vault in the back room, according to cops and the store owner. Surprised when another employee arrived at the store, he again acted like a customer and told the employee, “She’s in the back.”


Neither the employees nor the dog was injured.

After a trip to India to be “cured” by a famous mystic, young Aviva learned to use fashion and style to draw attention away from her prosthesis. She fled to Paris in her early twenties, where she transformed herself into a wild club chick and danced on tables with the crème de la crème of the big-hair supermodel era.

MADISON EQUITIES A LEADER IN NYC REAL ESTATE

The Excelsior



Madison Equities is a real estate development company respected for its creativity and commitment to innovation through design and forward thinking. Founded by Kenneth and Lucille Gladstone in the mid-1960s, the company is known for its development of high end residential, office, hotel, and mixed-use properties in Manhattan. In its second generation of family ownership, the Company is now led by Robert Gladstone who joined the business in 1972 and assumed the helm in 1992. In December 2009, Tony Labozzetta joined Madison Equities as its president. Tony oversees the Company’s daily operations and is responsible for all aspects of project finance and deal structuring. Prior to joining Madison Equities, he ran the boutique real estate investment bank Wall Street Realty Capital, which he acquired from Cantor Fitzgerald after overseeing Cantor’s Institutional Property Group for 9 years. Michael Holloway, formerly the president of Gotham Construction, heads all the company’s construction activities. Michael has also had senior executive positions at Bovis and Plaza Construction. Andrew Harris, a fifteen year veteran of Madison Equities, specializes in hotel design and operations and also coordinates project design and marketing for residential projects.



Madison Equities is a standout in its field because of its expertise across all aspects of real estate development including site selection, assemblage and possession, financing, zoning and permitting, contract negotiation, and innovative design.



The company’s first major project was The Excelsior, a 47 story tower on East 57th Street designed by architect Philip Birnbaum. The Excelsior features 371 luxury apartments atop a 200,000 square foot commercial base and garage. At the time of its completion in 1965, The Excelsior was the tallest reinforced concrete residential property in New York City. The tower is notable in New York City real estate history because it was the first truly mixed-use building in the city.

DEVRA MILLER'S FEMALE-FRIENDLY TRAVEL ACCESSORIES

Devra Miller



For women on the go, Miamica’s trendy travel accessories are a must-have. Organizing and packing have become far more effortless and enjoyable with this line of fun and functional designs. Devra Miller, Miamica’s President, started the New York City-based company in 2000 to address the lack of fashionable and affordable female-friendly travel accessories available to travelers. Each piece is emblazoned with a witty, whimsical phrase that reflects the spirit of the Miamica brand. Miamica’s English translation is “my friend”, and every Miamica product is meant to be your trusty travel companion. In December 2013, Miller launched an infant travel accessories line, l’il traveler, featuring items such as children’s wetsuit bags and passport cases. Miamica will debut a men’s travel accessories collection, The Art of Packing, in 2014.


After graduating college, Devra worked as a freelance writer and film critic for the San Juan Star newspaper when she resided in Puerto Rico for a decade. During those years, she frequently traveled off of the island to visit family. Though she searched for fashionable and affordable travel accessories geared towards female travelers, she found that the products she sought were unavailable. Her passion for traveling and accessories prompted her to start her own line of trendy travel accessories for women. Devra’s background as a writer inspired her to design her products with comical, clever sayings on them. The Miamica brand is all about spirit, wit, humor and fun.

THE BROW POLICE 'JOEY HEALY' PICKS THE HITS

Lupita Nyong'o



The world watched in awe as our favorite A-listers hit the red carpet at the 86th annual Academy Awards. While we were all fixated on their designer dresses, coiffed updos and fabulous jewels, celebrity eyebrow stylist Joey Healy was focused on the arches of the nominees. The stand out trend was beautiful, bold brows which have been all the rage since New York Fashion Week this past February. While some made the mark, others missed the cut. Brow Police Joey Healy dishes the hits and misses and also reveals how to get the brow looks of the Hollywood elite.



HITS



Lupita-Nyong’o-oscars-2014-academy-awards



Lupita Nyong'o- We love your brows! With her stunning, rich skin tone, Lupita has a brow that gives striking definition to her face. Her eyebrows are in ideal contrast with her warm skin tone. Her charcoal-infused eyebrows are the perfect neutral shade without any hint of red or ashy undertone. Lupita’s bold eyebrows balance out her fuller lips and create a sense of harmony in her overall appearance.



To get a look similar to Lupita, use Joey Healy’s Luxe Brow Powder in Raven




Jared Leto- Forget the Dallas Buyers Club, let us welcome Jared to the Amazing Brows Club! Jared kept the fringy sprouts around the bridge of his nose without surrendering to a unibrow. His bold, handsome arches frame his eyes and make his baby blues pop. The supporting actor impressed eyebrow guru Joey Healy with his natural yet groomed brows that prove men can be eyebrow superstars too. The juxtaposition of his rough and refined red carpet look was embodied in his rebellious eyebrows. In the past his look has skewed pretty boy, but his 2014 au natural Oscar brow makes him all man.

To get Jared’s look Joey recommends using Elite Sculpting Tweezer




Sandra Bullock- Sandy, your brows are out of this world! Their spot-on shade matches perfectly with her flowing chocolate locks. This is the brow we are seeing in the fashion world; bold but defined, effortless yet manicured. The success of this brow hinges on its ease and authenticity—they don’t look fake or drawn on. Her arches appear effortless and easy, the way we have all grown to love Sandra. Her beauty look is soft with just the right amount of definition. Her eyebrows look appropriately thick and contribute to her sultry eye makeup. Bravo!


To get the look Joey Healy suggests Luxe Brow Powder in Tobacco




MISSES




Jennifer Lawrence – JLaw might be nominated for best supporting actress, but her eyebrows failed to support her glamorous look. Her red carpet brows underwhelmed Joey—they appeared feeble, patchy and neglected. They coast flat without the slightest hint of a much needed arch. This flatness paired with her upswept hair creates a disproportionately large forehead. Her stunning eye makeup looks incomplete without a resolved brow. What a missed opportunity!



For a more complimentary brow Joey Healy suggests Brow Architect Stylo in Wicker





IVY BAR & GRILL HOSTS ASTAIRE AWARDS KICK-OFF

INSATIABLE CRITIC CITYMEALS ON WHEELS FETE

Elisa Herr With Gael Greene



The culinary and philanthropic communities joined Citymeals-on-Wheels stalwarts and just plain foodies tonight to cheer the legendary restaurant critic Gael Greene over the more or less harrowing hurdle of her 80th birthday.



“I don’t know how this happened so quickly,” said the “Insatiable Critic,” her tag for 40 years in New York magazine before she was fired and moved her critiques to insatiablecritic.com. “One evening I was 40 and disco-dancing and all men were 26, and next…this frightening big number. As she spoke, two towering chocolate birthday cakes, each marked “40,” would roll into Stella 34 Trattoria at Macy’s, overlooking the spire of the Empire State Building, where friends and supporters will gather to roast and toast her.



Greene, who managed to write seven books including two erotic best selling novels and a memoir between meals, started her journalism career at the New York Post in 1957, after a brief dalliance at United Press. Her memoir “Insatiable: Tales from a Life of Delicious Excess” documents the 40 year revolution in dining, how New York and, therefore America, fell in love with food.



The usually anonymous critic melted even the icy hearts of restaurateurs she chewed out when she co-founded Citymeals-on-Wheels more than three decades ago with the beloved American chef James Beard. Since its creation, the charity has delivered more than 47 million nutritious meals to homebound elderly New Yorkers.

TEACH CHILDREN GRATITUDE FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Jen Groover And Daughters




With the holiday season in full swing, children are inundated with advertising and talk of toys and gifts, creating a seemingly endless stream of “I want’s.” It’s easy for children to forget about all the things, both material and immaterial, that they already have in their lives.



According to Empowerment Expert Jen Groover, it’s important to teach children to express gratitude at a young age, as gratitude is a powerful emotion that will help them find peace in trying times as they get older. Gratitude also teaches kids resiliency, which is one of the key components needed for success and happiness. Your viewers can help their kids appreciate all that they have with Jen Groover’s 5 Ways to Give Your Kid an Attitude of Gratitude:



· Give your child a gratitude journal. Encourage them to spend ten minutes each day writing or drawing about the people and things they are grateful for.



· Give thanks together. At dinner have everyone share what they are grateful for. Both kids and adults can write cards for or draw pictures of the people and things they are grateful for. Hang them up to remind you kids of all they have to be thankful for throughout the holiday season.



· Create a gratitude ritual. Set a time each day, whether at the dinner table or in bed, when you and your children can reflect on the day together and share all the little things they were thankful for that day.



· Be a gratitude role model. Gratitude isn't just for kids – Set an example by saying “please” and “thank you,” sharing generously, praising your children when they express gratitude, and showing how grateful you are for what you have when interacting with your children.



· Make a gratitude board. Help your kids to create a visual manifestation of their gratitude, such as a vision board or collage of the people and things they are thankful to have in their lives.



· Share the gift of giving. Help your kids to bake and decorate cookies or set aside gently used toys they no longer play with. Together, take a trip to donate them to those less fortunate and let your children experience how good it feels to bring joy to others.
