Ring in 2018 with a Cheese Board!

December 31st, 2017 is the Second Annual Stay Home and Drink and Eat All Day New Years’ Eve Extravaganza (Our first last year was equally fun) . I love, love, love staying in on New Year’s Eve now. It’s something that I look forward to! Long gone are the $150-open bar tickets for five hours at Capitale only to step out past midnight into the cold, heels aching, to the sobering lack of transportation options. No more crowding around a bar for 20 minutes, being forced to resort to double/triple/quadruple-fisting glasses of cocktails. And no more standing around in a glittery, sparkly number in heels for 5 hours to wake up with sore, achy feet. No more to all of that! My friend Chrissy has been doing this for years with her husband and she’s quite an expert on New Year’s Eve celebrations at home. Brian and I are new to this and honestly, I’m sad that it took us this long to realize the genius of it.

I ate and drank to my heart’s content, garbed in a onesie, in the comfort of my own home while watching movies on Amazon while snuggled up to my corgi pup, Queen Elizabeth. It was amazinggggg! Brian and I also used a lot of our wedding presents: plates, glasses, & silverware. Sadly, we still don’t have a working oven/stove because of the gas leak in our apartment building so I purchased an Instant Pot to make pasta. The best part? We still have leftovers!

Fun City

A couple of weeks ago,

on a random Tuesday,

Brian and I decided to apply for our marriage license.

We entered City Hall –

I, happily dressed in a vintage sequin number

and he, in a jacket and jeans.

3rd Annual Bacon & Beer Classic

I don’t drink beer. But I love Beerfests. And bacon. I love bacon. The Bacon and Beer Classic is a yearly tradition – we purchase the VIP passes and sample sips of craft beer while noshing on bacony bites at Citifield. I can’t think of a better way to spend 5 hours. Click through for more pics!

Donald Robertson x Story!

After work, Brian and I trekked to the west side to check out Donald Robertson’s take over of Story, this really cool boutique/gallery hybrid in Chelsea. If you have time this week, you should definitely check it out – the place was wall to wall Donald. Not only did his artwork fully occupy the space but Donald himself was also there to sign his book, Mitford at the Fashion Zoo! I love his work – it’s so fun and tongue-in-cheek. I think that he has tapped this perfect formula of being honest with his work as an artist and at the same time, still gain popularity on social media. And he looks like he has so much fun doing it! The space had everything of his from pins, iron-on embroideries, his book Mitford at the Fashion Zoo, to phone cases, sunglasses, t-shirts, and original work by the artist himself.

Wes Anderson Art Show

Hypebeasts. I’ve heard of the term thrown around but only when anything Supreme, Kanye West, or Jordans are involved. A whole fandom whose admiration for something stems from its popularity. I guess you could say that I’m lucky in a sense that a lot of things I love and admire have been pretty untouched by the dreaded mindless minions. Until now, at least.
