One thing I deeply love about New York, is how different the culture can be in just a few blocks. At the surface of each subway station: you can emerge to find a new language being spoken around you, different architecture represented and a keen sense of style. Sub City Paris offers a similar experience within its lovely film sequence.
Michael Kors Wallet Clutch for iPhone. I tend to find myself juggling my phone, work ID and wallet whilst carrying my bagel and iced tea back up to the cubical. I rarely talk on my phone anyways! I believe in texting.
Lunchables when you were a kid? I sure did. I admit I'd probably think they were gross, if I tried them today. Here's an adult alternative: gopicnic. The goodies include: Old Wisconsin Beef Salami, olive oil & sea salt crackers, Copper Cowbell Asiago cheese spread, cashew and dried fruit mix and chocolate cookie cluster. The only thing missing: a half bottle of bubbly to share! Check out more varieties here. I'm considering ordering a few for trips to Central Park and the next time we're traveling by plane!
The weekend is nearly here! Are you doing anything fun? A few of my close childhood girlfriends are flying in from Seattle to do wedding planning! Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová's You Aint Goin' Nowhere reminds me of driving around the Island we grew up on!

I'm going to google them to see how hard they would be to get in April!

Becca Stadtlander stirs up mixed feelings of comfort and the unknown within me. The scenes appear sweet, docile, but is there something around the corner? Her client list is pretty impressive too: The Oprah Magazine, The Oxford American and Blanket magazine- among others- have featured her work. (View more).

Spinal Tape caught me offguard- gross? cool? I'll go with cool and use it send gifts to all my friends and family in the medical industry.
It's still muggy in New York, a detail which hasn't distracted me from romanticizing about Fall Fashion! My wishlist includes this yummy silk leaflet blouse from Madewell and these gorgeous caramel boots at J.Crew.

We opened our Sunday morning by heading over to the finish line for the Tunnel to Towers Run (we plan to get involved next year!) Following our venture to cheer on firefighters -in full gear- running a 5K...we wandered to Tribeca in search of a new brunch venue.
Having an itch to observe Oktoberfest, we landed at Blaue Gans. Appropriately decorated with wooden blue geese, the venue hosts a communal feel with picnic tables outside and a wide bar with large square stools. The crowd was mixed, but heavily laced with children in strollers.
Chris requested a beer-- and I couldn't resist the Hungarian Paprika margarita. (A stunning cocktail! Light and subtly spiced. I had two.) For our mains, I selected the Gravlax with arugula, cucumber and a dallop of cream cheese), Chris chose the Weißwurst with Brezel (two white sausages with Austrian sweet mustard and a large pretzel).
Although you might expect food from Bavaria to be heavy, we found it to be filling, but not weighing us down. Quite satisfying, albeit a bit pricy for brunch ($80 after tax and tip).

I'm smitten with Ever After Honey Moon blog. Though we've already booked our honey moon, the site doubles as a great vacation idea source! Albeit new, it's already full of real couples and stunning photos:)

DIY Romantic Star Projector was missing from my senior prom. I shouldn't complain, we hosted the dance the Experience Music Project Museum...and it was planned by classmate Chris Benz. It might be a pretty addition to the latter half of my wedding reception?

Manhattan is a small island. We've found ways to accommodate its popularity: build parks up, skyscrapers, high rise apartments and taking mass transportation underground. If you live in New York City and (or) have taken the subway, you're familiar with scenes much like the above. Imagine if someone, or three in this case, created a blueprint to remodel....
As much as I enjoy the view from my roof deck, I can't help but love the idea of a subterranean park. Most subway stations are- well- kind of gross. They definitely house rats and other creepy crawlers. This is where urban entrepreneurs James Ramsey, Dan Barasch hope to mine and transform an old terminal on the Lower East Side. To be called the Delancey Underground, it's already be dubbed The Lowline. Read more at New York Magazine.
