Introducing Queen Samatha

by SAMANTHA QUEEN · February 8, 2008

queenNote from GofG: Queen Samantha is a corporate lawyer at one of the country’s biggest firms. After a stint Washington D.C. and another in one of Wall Street’s largest investment houses, Queen Sam is clearly on a mission. A mission to bring you everything a girl needs to know about power and luxury, that is. Whether she’s traveling the world, shopping for the finest money can buy, or just looking for the best mid-day pick-me-up in midtown, Queen Samantha always has something to say. Tune in as the Upper East Side meets Midtown (and sometimes Chelsea) in Queen Sam’s humorous reflections on luxury, gender, news, and more.

Being single, successful, sexy, wealthy and female in one of the greatest cities in the world isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Just kidding! We know the pitfalls of corporate greed and civic irresponsibility, we laugh at frivolity and political corruption, social and moral ills confront us at every turn – it’s all very troubling. Very troubling, indeed. Sometimes, all we are left to do is keep our heads on straight, take the world for what it can offer us, and make the best of a mildly untenable socio-political environment. That’s where power and luxury come in. Life feeling overwhelming? Take a spa holiday. Have an impromptu, mid-week dinner with girlfriends at Nobu. Buy the Missoni dress that you can’t get off your mind. Visit your mentor who transferred to Paris. But first and foremost (and this is especially pertinent to the ladies), if life is feeling overwhelming, take control.

If you have something to say, say it. If you have something to do, do it. And if there’s someone in your life who doesn’t make it better, forget it. Just think of me as your resident expert in “existential capitalism”. And if you like made-up theories and phrases like “existential capitalism,” there is a lot more where that came from – for starters, read my posts on GofG then check out my site, Queen Samantha’s Weblog. Feel free to contact me directly at qn.samantha@gmail.com. Comments are always welcome, as are tips and story ideas. In the meantime, be strong, stay fab.

xx,

Queen Samantha
