Lauren Does Broadway (Again)!

So since my last Broadway review, I’ve seen 3 more shows. None of which I paid for at full price again! It is the only way to go! As an update, out of the 3 shows I reviewed last time, only 1 is still running (War Horse). Follies ended it’s limited engagement and Bonnie and Clyde … Continue reading

Big Nick’s Burger Birthday!

Thanks again to The Skint, I had another awesome, cheap New York adventure on Wednesday. This lovely adventure was at Big Nick’s Burger Joint. Nick’s was celebrating their 50th Anniversary which is AMAZING since New York trendy restaurants normally turn over every two years. For the big anniversary, Nick’s was going back to the original … Continue reading

The Joys of Riding the Subway: Part 1

There are a lot of reasons why riding the subway sucks. (Random stalls, never being in charge of your own schedule, having to carry everything everywhere, lack of car, etc.) But since I’ve moved here, I’ve slowly found little perks of riding the subway. Here is the first installment of my 4 part series, “The … Continue reading

One Lucky Bloomington Weekend

As I said on Friday, I made my first trip back to Bloomington this weekend.  On Friday, my dear Kevin picked me up and we made the trip down to Bloomington. At first, I was totally weirded out. Deja vu set in hard and the feelings of studying for exams and sleep deprivation hit me. While … Continue reading

The death of Whitney Houston this weekend completely devastated me. I grew up listening to Whitney Houston music. Between my mother’s Jazzercise routines and my complete obsession with the VH1 Divas Live concerts, Whitney was all over my house. I sang Whitney Houston in my 5th grade talent show (I was a confident child). She … Continue reading

Fancy Sparkle Nails

This weekend has been super relaxing. I bought a skirt on sale, went to Eataly for the first time with my laydeez, rocked out some karaoke in Koreatown, and I got some new nail polish. It’s been such a relaxing weekend I decided to get adventurous with my nails AND write a blog about it. … Continue reading

Lauren hearts RBG

So the main reason this week has been so insane is because I’ve been prepping for the arrival of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The plan was for the Justice to come to the Law School for the retirement celebration of her friend and old colleague, and then attend an all day conference in … Continue reading

Our Super Party

It’s become a tradition of mine to host a Super Bowl Party (as you can see in my last blog). This is odd because unless the Steelers are in the game,  I don’t care for much but the commercials  (and the logistics for the 8 min halftime show set-up!! WOW!) But this year became special … Continue reading

A Fun Saturday

This has by far been one of the hardest work weeks yet for me. And it is only Tuesday night. I think the combination of lack of sleep, the events starting to pile up, and those little needles in the haystack are starting to make me crack. Does that even make sense?? I don’t care. … Continue reading

Love and the Coolest Open House Ever

Have I mentioned how much I love living in Harlem? I love living in Harlem. Today just reminded me how much I love living here. Today the Apollo hosted an open house for the entire community and Logan and I went. A bunch of vendors came out and there was a bumpin’ DJ and a … Continue reading

Yesterday was one of our biggest events of the year! We hosted the Winter Luncheon at the Waldorf=Astoria to honor to fantastic alumni.

An Anniversary and a Memory

6 months ago today I started my job at Columbia. The amount I have learned in that amount of time is ridiculous! In honor of the anniversary, I thought I would show some pictures I found the other day. These are pictures from the last time I visited New York, prior to moving here- February … Continue reading
