It’s just one of those days

It’s just one of those days

Sometimes you just have those days I leave work promptly at 7:00 to meet a friend at 7:30 with a normal 30 minute train. Just kidding- next train isn’t for 10 minutes. I give my friend the heads up- I’ll be a little late. 8 minute pass. A train goes by without stopping. 10 minutes … Continue reading

Rocky on Broadway was insanely surprising

Rocky on Broadway was insanely surprising

Last night was the opening night of ROCKY Broadway– yes, Rocky like the 1970s meat punching boxer movie. I had the opportunity to see the show on Wednesday night, the very last preview. While there was no dancing (it is a musical), a variation in speaking accents and singing accents, and a song titled “My nose ain’t … Continue reading

I really like this little exercise– even with how crazy and a bit scary this week was, keeps you remembering the little things ya know? So here are some my top fivers for the week: 1. While … Continue reading

When the smell of gas scares you

When the smell of gas scares you

Today as I turned on my stove this morning to make my breakfast I became shaken and I took an audible gasp . As many of you heard, yesterday morning a building exploded in East Harlem- killing 7 and injuring many. Thank you to all that were concerned about my safety- at the time I … Continue reading

This blog is getting violent

This blog is getting violent

I’ve mentioned how excited I’ve been for snow in the city before, cause growing up down south we never got much. I’ve also mentioned how I loathe the cold, cause growing up down south I never felt temperatures so cold. So it’s been a pretty love/hate relationship with winter. But this winter- is pure hate. Pure, … Continue reading

Donut Samaritans

Donut Samaritans

As the cold winds move in, I think fondly of warmer days- my days that would start with a Dunkin Donuts unsweet iced tea… No lemon. Yes, I know, this is crazy. First I write about a plant and now I’m writing about tea? Way to take a steep decline… But it’s not just the … Continue reading

Guys, I bought a plant

Guys, I bought a plant

She’s a little baby thing and I found her at The Plant Shed, this little magical indoor garden on the Upper West Side. All the plants are indoor plants. perfect for New York apartments. Brilliant store. Who da thunk it. I haven’t had much luck with plants in the past, but since I’m approaching my … Continue reading

Refresh.

Refresh.

This weekend my goal was to refresh. I did a pretty good job at it. Candles, knitting, pulling out the fall sweaters, a play, a bit of indulgence and a very lucky escape out of the city. It was indeed a very refreshing weekend. And then we continue breathing…

Oh hey blog (and my feelings on New York).

I know. It’s been forever. I’m not going to even justify my absence because truthfully, I don’t have to.  But this summer has been an amazing time of growth and joy in my life and I’m really glad I just hunkered down and enjoyed it. But I think I’m back for a little bit more. … Continue reading

Go Knicks!

Go Knicks!

So I know this really awesome guy that gets me to do things I wouldn’t normally do…like go to a professional basketball game. Lord knows I’m a college basketball girl through and through but I’ve never been to a professional game. So being at Madison Square Garden for my first Knicks Game was kind of … Continue reading

The best day of the year…

The best day of the year…

is today. Why? Cause the legs are back out people. The coats are being shed. The sunglasses are abounding. Snow be gone, it seems the entire city has a spring in its step. The fountain is on and I had an ICED tea this morning. It’s worth repeating… ICED. That’s right- it’s April and its … Continue reading

Back to bizniz

After a Christmas experience very different than years past, I’m back in New York. Though I never vocalized it pre-25th, I was nervous about Christmas this year. It was the first time not seeing my mom on Christmas ever, not going out to California for part of the holiday, and it was the shortest Christmas … Continue reading

A Very Tuba Christmas

A Very Tuba Christmas

This holiday season I found a new tradition that rivals the Christmas Cabaret last year. The annual Christmas Tuba Concert at Rockefeller Center was something I saw in The Skint last year but for some reason couldn’t attend. So when it came around this year I couldn’t pass it up. And thank goodness I didn’t! … Continue reading

Gerard (My Best Friend) Butler

Tonight I was walking to the subway after a long day of work and I saw some tenting up at the local movie theater. Being the event professional that I am, I was curious. I noticed the pipe and draping, noticed the step-and-repeat, noticed the paparazzi and being at a movie theater- duh- movie premiere. … Continue reading

Hot Guys and Holidaze!

Hot Guys and Holidaze!

Well folks, the holidays have officially hit Harlem once again this year. Now we are old pros. I confirmed that the hot lumberjack man was back again to sell trees across the street. He indeed was. Plaid and all. So the roommates allowed me the “opportunity” to purchase our wreath this year. (Our little apartment … Continue reading

Tarrytown

Tarrytown

One of the things I wanted to do on my long Thanksgiving weekend was get out of the city. I hadn’t left the city since I went to Spain 3 months ago, so I was ready for an escape. But with the short time frame, holiday crowds and wanting to be a little cheap- I … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

Well hello all- I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’m ending mine curled up on my couch feeling a little sicky. But that doesn’t mean I had an awesome Thanksgiving. This was the first year that I wasn’t able to make it back to family. Weird. A bit sad. And very different. But I’m … Continue reading

One day at work

One day at work

So I work for the Ballet. But when the Ballet is off season, other groups come in and play. And lots of cool people come in to use the space- it’s become pretty normal to see crazy set-ups on stage. That is why this last week, when it looked like they were setting up an … Continue reading
