When my books are almost due and I haven’t started any of them
Month: December 2015
Do you have a movie you watch when you’re sick? My friend’s movie is The Mighty Ducks (yes she’s Canadian). Mine is Lord of the Rings, really any but preferably the first, that way if I’m really sick then I can continue with the second and third. Something comforting about the fact I can fall asleep and wake up multiple times and the movie will still be playing.
It’s December!!! My favorite month of the year. Not just because it’s a double wammy celebration of my birthday and Christmas, but because everyone seems a bit nicer around this time. Enough with the boring sentimental stuff.
Here are the items I’ve been eyeing..
OR… for someone to fill up my bike tires because I’m too lazy to do it myself!
Me trying not to eat sugar…
We need to talk about yesterday. Pro: I taught yoga in the library and was a baller.
Con: I had my (supposed to be) yearly gyno appointment.
I love my gyno, she makes fun chatter and we both pretend she isn’t touching me everywhere while I’m naked.
The whole experience can be summed up in this short convo..
Doc: Any questions?
Remember how I went to nyc with my gurl Kayla? I finally got around to posting the pictures (the ones I could find..). spoiler: we did see MK & A, or dress up like them (against my sincere wishes)
KB wanted to go to this fancy candle store and all I could think of was the candle vlogger from Scream Queens haha. Please say you have watched it because it’s a total gem of a show. Yep, she’s totally eating candle wax..
… but back to the story. Fancy candles! Yall I need a card catalog cabinet like I candle vlogger girl needs candle wax.
It was a real ~hipster~ place. Please note the typewriter which I’m sure is used daily. cuteeeeee. in case you can’t tell we spent all Saturday in SoHo shopping :) This jewelry place was so cute, it had a tea house at the front of the store and I could hang out there all day. also the guy working there was wearing a poncho and I wanted to be his friend. after we stopped in the MAC store so I could try on the “snob” lipstick that I’m always hearing about.
breaktime. gotta talk FOOD. Dinner: Beauty and Essex, a lounge hidden behind a pawn shop. I’ve always wanted to go to one of those hip and happening places so it was fun to see what they were like! rec: definitely get the grilled cheese and tomato soup dumplings! so yum! desserts were kinda gross though. Breakfast: Absolute Bagels was an obvious choice, and right down the street from our friend’s place! Lunch: we got hungry walking around SoHo (ok mostly I needed to pee) and KB spotted Lafayette. Real talk. this was the best bacon of my life. I realize my salad looks like dead grass but swear it was yummy! Brunch: Claudette, if Anthropologie served food. The End All Be All: Levain Bakery– get the chocolate peanut butter cookie, you won’t regret it. seriously.
aaaaand drum roll please! THE PENCIL STORE. I’m so glad KB didn’t mind me dragging her to CW Pencil it was so rad! A tiny little store but it was packed with people. I got the Ben Franklin pencil (obviously). Please note my other purchase of the day, my new hat! so nyc right?raise your hand if you can remember using the pencil machine! The owner was there and rang me up. Her pencil tattoo is super cool and I mentioned I had read the NYTimes article about the store (such a suckup), she said it changed everything for them! now that’s good press.
but back to food. this is hands down the best home made pizza. I don’t know how or why but it tis. Public apology for doubting if it was correct amount of cheese because it so was. I know this is a crummy photo of the meal but take a mo’ to appreciate the homemade croutons as well! Beyonce would be so proud.not pictured: Princess Diaries on in the background last but not least, shout out to my girl Kathleen Kellyehhhhh see it? cannn you feeeel the loooove tonight dododooo
