Shop for Your Sex and the City Look for Under $30

On May 27, Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda return to the big screen in "Sex and the City 2." I loved the first film so much I cried.  Then again, I also teared-up during "Spice World."

"Sex and the City" was one of those TV shows I didn't want to end, so I welcome the chance to see these sassy New York City gals again.  They're like old friends you only kick it with once every couple years, but you pick up right where you left off.

If you'd like to make a "Sex and the City" fashion statement, here are a few cute items I found. The "Carrie" necklace ($24.99) and "Famous Quotes" tote ($19.99) are from the HBO Shop, and the "Hello Lover" tee ($28) -- a Beyonce fave -- is by Mighty Fine.

The trailer for "Sex and the City 2" had me at "Hello Lover," and the hot soundtrack features Alicia Keys ("Empire State of Mind"), Erykah Badu ("Window Seat"), and a duet by Leona Lewis  and "SATC" co-star Jennifer Hudson ("Love Is Your Color").

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t
