I haven’t had time to churn out posts lately, so here is a brain dump.

Food

  • I came across this great deal on one of my travel blogs. If you have the British Airways Visa (which I got during the 110,000 mile promotion), get $50 credit at any Michelin starred restaurant in NYC. Up to $100 credit. $50 purchase minimum. Many one-starred restaurants are very reasonably priced (and delicious).
  • There are too many options in my neighborhood.
  • Butter Lane‘s strawberry cheesecake cupcake is delicious. I brought some to a friend’s friend’s potluck and wish I kept it for myself. Haha.
  • Really looking forward to the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop opening. It’ll be a bit longer
  • There is a new, boozy bakery, Jane’s Sweet Buns, on my block. Something about the exterior seems icky (and maybe I never got over the fact that De La Vega doesn’t live there anymore). I’ll get around to checking out the inside one of these days. Its owner has Death & Co. roots.

Fashion

  • I wish Alexander McQueen made more scarves without skulls on it.
  • I dislike princess sleeves or ruffled suit pieces. I can’t remember the last time I saw a tasteful interpretation of it, but I definitely don’t like it on grown women in a business setting.
  • How much exposed zipper can one take?
  • Gap needs to stop their (additional) 40% off sales. J.Crew’s additional 40% off didn’t help either.
  • Reminder to self: I am done with (buying) suits for a while.
  • Yoox.com/thecorner.com/theoutnet.com. So tempting, can’t help but look!
