What I'm Loving...

Who doesn't love a mimosa? Over Halloween weekend my friends and I went to Paradou in the Meatpacking District for their Unlimited Champagne Cocktail Brunch. We all left stumbling down the cobblestone in the snow...


I love when I find a DIY that I can actually execute without delay. Most get filed away for someday never (think cooking and interior decorating). The sock bun ... voila! I came across the idea on Pinterest via Three Pink Dots but needed a video - this tutorial is really helpful. Am I the last to catch on to this?

H&M $29.95
Currently loving elbow patches. This button down just screamed Adirondacks and I will wear it this winter. I will say that I had mixed emotions while buying it at H&M... same feeling when I bought my first pair of destroyed distressed jeans from Abercrombie back in the day. Do you know what I mean?!

I don't like to exude negative energy but I need to purge myself of these thoughts. I am not loving:

Anything to do with the Kardashians. Especially Kim's "feelings" - enough.
On the topic of celebs...Lindsay Lohan unless I'm watching Mean Girls.
Daylight savings.
Cropped tops and sweaters. I tried... it's not happening for me.
Working in Times Square during the holiday season. I can barely get myself around Manhattan let alone tourists.

And that is all for this evening. Have a great night!

  14. sooo with you on being tired of hearing about Kim's feelings... I think it's funny myself, which I guess is mean, but... I can't help it. and I agree with you on cropped tops too, didn't we all decide several years ago that they are awful...

  16. Your bun looks fantastic! It's always nice when DIY projects you read about actually end up working, and end up working that beautifully. As far as I'm concerned the Kardashians can move to the island of misfit celebrities where we will never hear about her again.
