While I’ve been away

While I’ve been away

Well, I’ve pulled a muscle in my back and have been confined to my bed. So there is no better time to start writing again right? Truthfully, it is the only way that I’ve stopped in the last couple of months. It has been a complete whirlwind. It definitely has not been an easy few … Continue reading

I’m ALIVE!

Hi. Hi! HELLO!!! I’m alive. I promise. I’m sorry I’ve been MIA. I’m still MIA a bit. BUT I’ll be back soon. Stay tuned people… BIG THINGS. -L

How I Got Into Events

How I Got Into Events

So I’ve gotten some emails from some readers that aren’t my grandma about working in events. Since I’ve gotten a few, I thought I’d make my response public- maybe it will help a few more! So here it goes- How did you get into a events? I realized I wanted to do events way back … Continue reading

Friday- You’re Welcome Here

Friday- You’re Welcome Here

It’s been literally an insane week. I don’t use it lightly. Between this crazy madness (which was enough excitement for the week– call it quits right there!) I also had a pretty intense week personally and at work as well. And it seems that the weeks to come are going to be pretty intense too. … 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

Merry Xmas and all that jazz

Merry Xmas and all that jazz

I took this photo of the field that used to be my backyard from a CAR. In which I was DRIVING. Ahhhhh… It’s good to be home. Merry Christmas all. Catch ya on the flip side.

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

It’s a Family Event

It’s a Family Event

This weekend we had such a wonderful and fun event at work. I’m exhausted and I need a weekend after the weekend but what a great event it was! The Sugarplum Fairy, the Cavalier, Dew Drop and event Santa Claus showed up! Gingerbread houses galore! And so many little girls in their little dresses. It … 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

Bleh Cough Cough Snot “Weekend”

Bleh Cough Cough Snot “Weekend”

I hate being sick. I hate being sick on the weekend even more. I’m spending the weekend watching hours and hours of Friday Night Lights. Online holiday shopping and making these cookies. Oh- and working on Sunday. Womp Womp. All in all though, not a bad way to spend a sicky weekend. Hope you’re weekend … Continue reading

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
