Diner en Blanc
This exclusive event was started by a small group of friends in Paris, but has now grown into a worldwide sensation. Diner en Blanc, which literally means dinner in white in french, is a sophisticated outdoor picnic where everyone wears all white. The big catch is no one knows where the event is going to […]
Kick Axe Brooklyn
For my birthday, I took my friends to throw some axes! I’ve been to Kick Axe Brooklyn twice before and its a lot of fun. I always have such a blast! It’s also a spot for a date. It’s actually a lot easier than you think and I’ve never seen anyone get hurt so don’t […]

Diner en Blanc
Diner en Blanc is a mysterious event that started as a french tradition among close friends. A few friends decided to have a sophisticated picnic in Paris. Tables, chairs, plates, and cutlery were all brought to the location by each attending member. To recognize each other, they all wore white. Each year this picnic got larger and larger, but because the group was always known for being curious and clean, they were able to grow their tradition to many other cities all over the world.
New Years Eve
New Years was a great success this year! I had so much fun! First we (all 12 of us) went to a restaurant on the lower east side called Ducks Eatery. The food was beyond amazing! I got pig ears and chicken wings, and James got mussels and ribs. Those were the best chicken wings I’ve ever had in my life! That’s saying something considering I’ve been to a lot of restaurants in the city, including Red Rooster in Harlem.
I wore an old BCBG dress that I had in my closet, Walter Steiger heels that I got years ago, and a pair of new Hue tights that have a leather-like sheen to them. I used the eye shadow that my mom got me for Hanukkah, Stila’s Magnificent Metals Foil Finish eye shadow in Metallic Gilded Gold. It was pretty hard to get enough on a normal brush, so I might buy the applicator brush that Sephora recommends.
After dinner we all went back to our friend’s house in Williamsburg and watched the ball drop on TV and the fireworks from his balcony. It was such a beautiful setting, and a million times better than watching from Time Square. I had such a great time with all my friends together!
Jazz Age Lawn Party
On Saturday, I went to the Jazz Age Lawn Party at Governors Island! Its a unique gathering of people where they have an orchestra playing great 1920s jazz and everyone is dressed like its the 20s. You picnic on the lawn, you can bring your own food but there are food vendors there, and enjoy […]
Sephora VIB Rouge Event
I just got back from Sephora’s exclusive VIB Rouge event! I went to the store on 99th and Columbus because it’s closest to my apartment on the Upper West Side. I didn’t expect it to be as packed as it was because the event was at 9 – 11 am on a Sunday. However, they […]
