I have two backpacks. One black lacquer and one camo from the Equinox collaboration.
I use both equally as much and now I’ve added the navy lacquer pouch. Recently my toiletry bag was discovered to be not public facing. Oh and this am, it accidentally fell in the toilet bowl. Luckily it was terry cloth and I could wash it but I am no longer taking it out publicly.
The pouch turned out to be a great toiletry bag. I love MZ Wallace’s Metro collection. I want everything in every color. Seriously.
My week in PS was spent at the Colony Palms Hotel in Palms Springs. Out of all the hotels I’ve been to in PS, this is by far my favorite. It’s intimate, has great service, VALET, comfy beds and THE BEST CAESAR salad ever. I mean, their restaurant is called Purple Palm. 😛
My trip to NY in August was super eventful. The weather was much better and I experienced an amazing dining experience at The Nomad Hotel. Although it wasn’t truffle season and my gf JL really wanted me to try the truffle pasta.. we figured I’d be back soon enough to try it next time! We had frosé, saw sapphires and enjoyed the tolerable weather… way better than my trip before.
My next NY trip is in October, less than a month away and another in November… I’m excited to be back with my fur!
My friend TA recently moved her entire life to Colorado. My husband was leaving to New Orleans that weekend and NY was too far for me to travel to so I went to visit TA. Fort Collins, Colorado. An hour north of Denver and so close to the mountains. It was a perfect weekend because it snowed a lot and we just relaxed, talking about everything and laughing at anything. We also of course had some yummy food. The first place we went to was Lucile’s Creole Cafe.
We fell asleep early on Saturday (6pm!!!) so we didn’t have dinner but woke up early on Sunday to have breakfast again at Silver Grill Cafe. Both of these places had a long wait and now I know why! The food was amazing!
I can’t wait to visit again…traveling to Colorado was easy and Frontier was NOT bad!
Visited my gf again in NY and brought Bear with me. He got to enjoy the subway ride into the city.
My gf met me at the airport so I could learn how to ride back into the city. I was fine until we arrived into Manhattan and I had to lug my suitcase up four flights of stairs! Narrow ones too! People were coming down as I was going up and it was just too tight for me to comfortably carry luggage up those flights.
The last flight, my gf carried it for me! 😛
The city wasn’t as cold and there was still snow in the streets. Dirty snow.
I got to enjoy the city on Saturday, roaming around and going to MAD and MOMA.
I used to say MAD was my favorite museum because the one time I visited, the exhibits were so cool and I fell in love, BUT this time around, it wasn’t that great.
I didn’t like ANY of the exhibits. MOMA was just okay too. My first time. It was super crowded and very expensive. $25! That’s crazy!
The reason why I loved MAD was that I saw the most gorgeous chandelier in the lobby which has been removed. I didn’t think it was an exhibit, but I guess it was.
I also saw an exhibit where the artist used syringes to create a beautiful enormous chandelier. The exhibits weren’t as modern and to me, I didn’t see any art and design aspects. It was more of a historical exhibit. Not my cup of tea.
I did enjoy the gift shop and picked up some greeting cards. (I love greeting cards)
On Sunday before my trip, I picked up Katz for Bear. 🙂
I did NOT have Shack Shack this trip, but we did go to Marea. Thank you JH for lunch!
The most amazing structures are in France and the emotions I felt are so unspeakable. I am so happy to have been a part of this trip and to see and understand a different culture unknown to me has opened my eyes! Every moment of the trip I wanted to experience something new, my mind was expanding and I realized how much I had been living in a bubble. There is nothing greater than traveling and exploring. Each second was memorable and everlasting.
My favorite part of the trip was of course the visit to Reims, France to have champagne tasting.
We visiting our favorite champagne houses, Veuve Clicquot and learned so much about the Veuve house and about champagne. This was by far the best experience I ever had, IN MY LIFE.
The Year in Champagne documentary I watched on the way to Paris definitely helped me understand the region before arriving.
I knew about the cellars underground that went on for miles and miles and how they produced the different kinds. I even found out that they have a champagne school which is for a year in Reims that I would love to attend before I turn 40!
The experience was unimaginable and the tour guide we had was amazing. At the end of our Veuve tour, we tasted the Yellow Label (which we always get) and the Grand Dame, I most likely prefer the Grand Dame over the Yellow. I can’t bare to think of drinking the Yellow Label anymore.
We visiting an amazing cathedral and another smaller champagne house during our trip. It took most of the day and we took a 40 minute train ride up north to visit Reims. The weather was still amazing and I will never forget this day.
I didn’t take a photo of the hip-sack (fanny pack) cause my room is a mess, but it is so fucking awesome. Usually I don’t like their stuff cause it has the Herschel logo everywhere, but this one didn’t and the fabric was in velvet, so it looked designer-ish and fashionable. Def. something I strive for, to be chic and put together.
I love that it has a bunch of compartments for cards and such so I don’t have to carry a wallet with it. 🙂
