From the Editor: It's All Good



Poor January. Isn’t it funny how we accept the chilly temperatures in December as part of the season—in a festive Jack Frost-nipping-at-your-nose kind of way. Yet in January we curse the plummeting mercury and vow to hibernate until spring. Last month we party-hopped, gluttonously ate and drank in the name of merriment and good cheer. This month, we nibble on carrots and head to the gym—in the cold. Yup, January gets a bad wrap.

We’d like to change that. Welcome to our Feel Good issue. On these pages we offer you a respite from the doldrums of winter. In “The Perfect 10”, we take you to fantastic locales that offer the ultimate in adventure, spiritual and luxury travel—some around the world, some around the corner (so to speak), all over-the-top. Greenwich locals who have taken these special journeys give us their firsthand insider tips on what not to miss.

And if you subscribe to the theory that looking good helps you feel good, have we got a story for you. “Beyond Botox: A Girlfriend’s Guide to Plastic Surgery” is a comprehensive look at the vast number of options available in the nip/tuck world.

Now, I realize that plastic surgery is a divisive issue. Two years ago I decided to correct my droopy eyelids. Certain friends feared I would end up looking perpetually surprised. Others feared that after having one procedure I wouldn’t know how to stop. (I wondered if they were confusing plastic surgery with heroin.)

I am happy to report that thanks to my very talented surgeon, my lids and I are just fine. In a way, my experience was the inspiration for our story. When I would mention that I had my lids done, people’s curiosity was overwhelming. Who did I go to? How much did it cost? What was the recovery like? Would I do it again? (As a result, two friends have had the same procedure.) It became clear that women wanted advice from a trusted source. So our guide began to take shape.

If these stories don’t help you snap out of your January funk, we know that the winners of our annual photo contest will put a smile on your face. They are funny, beautiful, creative and interesting. Just like our town. And come on, that’s just gotta make you feel good.
