    Got Legs, Will Travel!

    We’re in the late part of summer. Soon students will be back in school and those of us with summer Fridays will have to wait a little bit longer to clock out. But in the meantime, how about taking a little trip? August means vacation season for many, and that includes many of us at MeMoi. We’re constantly on the move, which is why we’ve always been sure to have plenty of travel-friendly wear. But more important than what you’re wearing is where you’re wearing it. Let us be your tour guide for a while. These are some of our favorite destinations in 2019.     4. Glitz & Glamour…

    Happy Birthday to YOU!

    It’s always a special occasion when one of our parents celebrates a birthday. After all, where would we be without mom and dad? We all know the enormous contribution George Washington, our Founding Father, made to this great nation of ours, but how many of us are cognizant of his accomplishments on this cold, winter’s day? Besides being the inaugural POTUS, Washington was notorious for many other things – like sleeping around. No, he wasn’t a libertine, he just slept in a lot of beds throughout the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania area. FACT: George slept in so many different places throughout his storied career, taverns and inns would…

    PIZZA!!!!

    God bless the day Gennaro Lombardi was born. Lombardi, responsible for bringing pizza, the “most delicious dish EVER” to the States, kicked off what would become America’s favorite food today. Lombardi’s Pizzeria opened in New York City in 1905, and soon after, this culinary masterpiece swept the nation, spawning various incarnations and many imitations along the way. No other dish has been replicated more, or modified to embrace the demand of local cuisine. The classic, thin-crust New York City pie was inspired by its origins in Naples, Italy, the birthplace of pizza. Let’s trace its roots back to see where all this yummy stuff began. Behold the margherita pie! Legend…

    You Can’t Have One Without the Other

    Partnerships have been around since the dawn of time. Adam and Eve kicked it off in the Garden of Eden, and from forth the tree of life sprang many more illustrious couples: Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Isolde, Bonnie & Clyde, Burton and Taylor, Edward and Bella… just to name a few. We’re not meant to walk the earth alone, and having a partner by our side to assist with life’s ups and downs is really what it’s all about. Our mates are our mirrors, the ones chosen to help us see ourselves better so that we may flourish as individuals; And in turn, we aid in our partner’s growth,…

    The Mixtape

    Time to create a playlist for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. Music plays an integral part in our lives, and even more so in our personal relationships. Think back to when you first met your significant other… what tunes were playing on the radio? Songs help define stages in a romance. The first date. The first kiss. The first feelings of love. Each moment cemented by a sound that could be heard near or somewhere off in the distance. Music helps keep things memorable, special and often speaks to how we are feeling on the inside. Not sure how to tell your honey just how much you adore them? Not…

    Super Alternatives to Super Bowl Sunday

    Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching. This commercial mainstay has become a rite of passage for Americans throughout the years; You invite a bunch of people over, crack open some beers, nibble on party foods, and “watch” the game. But let’s be honest, who’s really paying attention to the action on the field unless you’re in contention to win the big pool at work? The Super Bowl is not for everyone. The commercials tend to be overly-hyped and ultimately overrated, the anthem and half-time shows are blatantly exaggerated, and the game can drag on and on for hours forcing you to sit through play after painful play. It seems kinda…

    Predicting the Oscars

    The Oscars are fast approaching and there’s a lot of buzz surrounding the announcement of the nominations for the highest achievement in motion pictures. While the Golden Globes and Critic’s Choice Awards have came and went, we all know it’s the Oscars that is the award event of the season. 2018 was a strong year in film, culminating with the best-of-the-best duking it out for a gold statue on Sunday, February 24. No doubt there will be snubs for well deserving films and actors as well. Mimi Leder and her movie, On the Basis of Sex, (about Ruth Bader Ginsburg), and Mary Queen of Scots, starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot…

    A Little Office Appreciation

    You work hard. You put in the long hours week after week. You spend a great deal of mental energy taking care of business throughout the entire year, and as the end of the year approaches you need a little fun to lighten the load. But, how do you celebrate the season with your office mates when an office environment lands short on holiday spirit? No festivities? No decorations? NO BUENO. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and you don’t want employees going stir crazy in their cubicles this winter, do you? While we know there aren’t many top brass out there as zany and lighthearted…

    The Christmas Razzies

    As much as we love Christmas, and we certainly do!, there are a few things we wouldn’t mind not seeing or hearing this holiday season. It’s bad enough Christmas music hits the airways WELL in advance – not to mention, tree decorations and gift sets making their way onto store shelves before the kids can say trick-or-treat. But, that’s not the worst part about bad holiday protocol. Here are some yuletide offenders we wish would go away permanently… (even though they most likely won’t.) Putting ornaments on automobiles. Cars were designed to take you from one place to another, not for showing off your love of Rudolph; So, those distracting lights and shiny decorations…
