Croissant?



was happy to find these at our local european foods store... (mostly eastern european goods, actually)... but what's up with the false advertising? the product looks nothing like the picture on the package...

orisinal


soooo cute!

new bag


finally settled on a new shoulder bag... it's been a long, difficult process... and i've dragged J though it all (soorry!)... anyway, here it is... ta-dah!


it's from mulberry and they've opened up a couple store here in the city. they seem well made, and simple (almost too simple, with only one small zip pocket inside!).

good weather for...




derek from Good Weather For Airstrikes got into a car accident, and boy is it HIRARIOUS!!

kind of great that he can make fun/happy of such a scary incident... (can you tell i'm not a car person?)

tuna casserole



j and i made tuna casserole... it turned out pretty good, i guess, although this stuff seems hard to screw up (it's just gooey food!)... recipe from epicurious, and easy to follow. it isn't my favorite food though... it seems really unhealthy!

hypediss competition


this is an interesting competition, where they are giving away an ipod for the most hyped story, and a zune for the most dissed story... brilliant idea.. i really like the idea of giving away a zune, as a loser prize!!

busy, but not TOO busy to update my poor blog!



took a quick trip to chilly montreal for thanksgiving weekend (pretty, but areas look like Wicker Park) , and didn't really do any shopping... except got a skirt at Reborn (pictures later)...


ate some yummy food. this is a montreal-style bagel... which is different from a nyc style bagel... they are just different.. i can't say which one is 'better'... but the montreal style is probably easier to eat.. the outside is crispy as opposed to 'chewy' (so when you take a bite, the cream cheese doesn't go squishing out the other end) and the whole thing is a bit smaller.


we stayed at a pretty swanky hotel that was a pretty good deal.



oh and the cutest, chubby squirrel!!

glad to be back in nyc, though.

new jacket


for my birthday, i got a great winter jacket. Not one that i would buy myself, which makes it extra perfect. Moncler, with raccoon fur... sorry animal lovers... at least it isn't a poor fox...although i think that raccoons are just as cute and tortured/killed in the same horrific ways... same thing with the down feather insides... ugh. i'm feeling pretty bad now.

16 jackies



i am a huge fan of andy warhol... and it is such a treat to see works that are in private collection, and never viewed in public before... it's truly exciting... and the price! (it sold at auction for $15.6 million...)

bags

i am looking for a 'cross-body' bag... whatever they are called. My right shoulder hurts constantly from my shoulder bags... any suggestions? I came across The Bag Snob which is a great resource for finding out the coolest/newest bags.


these ones by Jean Paul Gaultier are the closest to what i want... simple and soft.

I really do like this ann demuelemeester bag though, not a 'cross-body' bag, but it looks so light and soft... and i would really like more of her stuff!!!

lunch at Oms/b

a yummy lunch... too bad it is kind of on the expensive side (for onigiri)... seems like it is close to home... but somewhat inconvenient to get to.... tasty though!!

Mason Pearson



thanks to naive, i picked up this 'handmade comb'... to de-fuzz my sweater.. and i was in need of a comb for my hair (last one mysteriously disappeared!). martha gave me the great tip of how to de-fuzzing sweater... works great, but she also told me that cheap sweaters fuzz-up quickly because they use short fiber yarn, which is what makes them inexpensive... i am realizing that all my really nice, expensive sweaters don't fuzz up, and my cheaper (even cashmere) ones are fuzzing up... : (

Miquel Barceló


browsing through the auction results in london... and fell in love with this little fella... beautiful drawing, huh?

Opniyama


cute game-type thing... although there does not seem to be an objective (boo!)... i love the free-fall aspect... a bit scary if you are used to playing super mario bros. type games...
