Shopping in NYC

10/15/07
~I had a great Saturday in NYC! I went to the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show with my friend Corey. We saw some really amazing vintage clothes and both ended up getting great vintage jewlery (we even spotted Anna Sui shopping around). Since it was Corey’s Birthday we had a yummy lunch at Cafeteria and finished the day with cupcakes at the famous Magnolia Bakery! -erica

~This weekend my fiance’s parents and brother are flying in to meet my WHOLE family. All of our grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins will meet each other for the first time. I’m very nervous and of course have nothing to wear…I hope everyone likes each other!!!-nicole


~I can’t lie…I’m completely obsessed with the game
Dungeons & Dragons. So much so, that my friends and I have a tournament this weekend! This time we’ve bet money! I’ve been working out my tactics so let’s hope I win…need the money for another pair of shoes!-telly

~ Oh I am so happy! Terrance (my fiancé) got me a new toy – a sewing machine!! I’ve been wanting it for so long and now I can alter all the pants that I haven’t been able to wear. I can also channel my creative side to make custom designed cushions & curtains for our home sweet home. I hope he’ll like my designs!-leonie

~I can’t believe that tonight is actually my art show! I am so nervous and excited. All the tarte girls are coming so I must impress! This means I only have one month of school left-forever! Ahhh! Real life is approaching! Wish me luck tonight!-erica

~I’m going to New Orleans for a wedding this weekend and think I just might go insane before that doing all the last minute “get ready” preparations. You know, mani/pedi/wax/laundry/diet??? Not to mention, this is my very FIRST trip away with my boyfriend and he’s meeting my college friends!! They better behave!-heather

~I had the best weekend in the Poconos. My friend Corinne invited my boyfriend and I to her boyfriend’s house there and it was BEAUTIFUL. The house was totally beautiful-giant tv’s, a fireplace, a stocked bar, and even a hot tub. It was the most relaxing weekend I’ve had in a very long time. Now I have a new goal in life… Must get a house in the Poconos!-maria

~For anyone who gets as sad as I do about missing episodes of their favorite shows (yes, I’m still a TiVo holdout): you have to check out Television Without Pity. They write hilarious recaps of a ton of popular shows and are so adept at picking out the tiny nuances that only a real fan would know you can actually picture the episode in your head. I’ve been a fan since I used to read Dawson’s Creek recaps in 2000. Just had to share.-alexis

So glad I got to go home this weekend! A little Southern air is always nice and I love seeing my family (and the FOOD). For those of you who haven’t heard of
Moravian sugar bread you must try it! I think I gain a few each time I’m home just from this stuff!-lallie

~My BF casually mentioned to me this am that we’re going to a US Senators wedding in a few weeks. No worries right? Ack! Must lose 5 pounds & find a dress immediately that says sophisticated yet sexy…pretty yet conservative…do I need to wear a ridiculous over the top hat? Heaven help me!-raquel

~Happy birthday to me! I’m having the best day so far-my boyfriend has once again proved his superior gifting skills with my amazing hot pink Stella wallet And I came in to find a yummy Magnolia cupcake sitting on my desk, courtesy of Lallie and what could be a better breakfast than that? It should be my birthday every day.-alexis

~Now I know that in the grand scheme of things, this isn’t that big of a deal but WHY is Desperate Housewives a repeat every single week? I love my Sunday night “line-up” and it’s been out of whack for weeks now. This is some serious suspense they have going on…I hope they have something good coming up!-lallie

~I’m going home this weekend-yay!! I haven’t been out to my parents house since New Years and I’m so excited to just have a long drive with my boyfriend tonight and then hang out there and relax. I definitely want to cook too, since the gas in my apartment has been broken for a month….I love making fruit tarts (this one is SO good) but I haven’t found a homemade crust recipe yet that’s just right…they always get a little too hard. (This could also be due to my dubious crust-making skills) Anyone have tips on this?? If so, please put it on the forum, because my boyfriend is tired of hearing me whine about my sad crusts.-alexis

3/17/05 Happy St. Patty’s Day!

~Is it poosible for someone to drink so many margaritas the night before that their head implodes the next day when they’re sitting at their desk? If you don’t see a blog from me tomorrow the answer is yes!-maureen

~Taking a half day today! My boyfriend is marching in the parade and I’m going to cheer him on. This will be the first year I’m actully making it to the parade. So excited!-heather

~Do you ever wake up in the morning and just really want to stay in bed all day, snuggling? Of course you do…everyone does! That was totally me this morning. So my boyfriend and I made a date to do just that this weekend. I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to doing absolutely nothing before!-maria

~I got accepted to my yoga training class!! It starts in April and runs through December. This is so great! I absolutely cannot wait to start learning more about the practice of yoga and more breathing techniques.-lallie

~Saw Constantine over the weekend. All of that devil stuff gave me nightmares…I’d wait for it to come out on DVD if I were you. Was LOVING the Spring weather though. Mother Nature is back in force today with her big winter bitchslap…will we ever get to wear flipflops again?-maureen

~Had a really nice weekend…relaxing but fun too. Had to get a spray tan for this Lucky mag story I’m doing. One word-gross! I look amazingly tan now but couldn’t take a shower for 12 hours after!! SO disgusting! My boyfriend wouldn’t even get near me because of the smell!!! At least I look good..I guess??-lallie

3/9/05

~I am on a serious health/fitness kick (I think it has to do with all this winter comfort food!). Monday I had my first tap class and LOVED it! Last night I had an intense yoga class and I am totally feeling it today…I’m on a mission though!-lallie

~Well, due to the lovely (can you sense the sarcasm?!) NY weather, looks like my weekend trip is on ice…literally. It’s ok though, it just means I get to spend time with my niece on her 5th birthday – and eat lots and lots of cake!-maria

~I am so sad to be missing America’s Next Top Model tonight. My boyfriend and I drafted teams and we update the stats weekly. In the end, the loser (aka: him) will take the winner (aka: me) out for dinner. I have to catch the rerun on Friday–my success depends on it! -alexis

3/7/05

~Well, I got my wish…I finally got a day to go shopping. But, as always, I hated everything! Does anyone else have the problem of jeans being about 2 feet too long on them or is it just me? I’m by no means a short girl (I’m 5’4″) so why oh why does this happen to me??? If any of you tarte girls out there have any suggestions as to where I can find good jeans – HELP!!!-maria

~Watched The Royal Tannenbaums last night (yes I know I’m a little late on this one). It was so good in a weird sorta way- loved the 2 little boys in those crazy tracksuits. Would it be cheeseballish of me to get tickets to see Kelly Clarkson? Her new songs are sooo uplifting.-maureen

~Was just thinking that I desperately need a manicure this weekend, mostly because as a reformed nail-biter, I am consistently amazed by my nails these days. My mom discovered this Columbian nail hardener that is tough to find but is SO amazing–seriously–I have never had nails like this in my life. I just had to share, it’s that good.-alexis

~
The Hookup Handbook launch was last night. Sooo much fun…a little too much fun! Tomorrow is St. Patty’s Day in Hoboken (yippee) and brunch is at my house so I need to spend today thinking up a menu…pancakes anyone??-lallie

~Everyone in the office can’t believe I bought this shirt but I had to! I’ll probably wear it like everyday I love it so much. My dad’s gonna love it!!!-lallie

~I’m so looking forward to this weekend…dinner with my boyfriend, birthday celebrations, getting my hair and nails done, and above all else SHOPPING! I better get my rest tonight…what better way to relax then to cuddle up with my pupski and watch Napolean Dynamite. Again.-maria

~So my grandfather and I just got into this long conversation about these old Nabisco cookies, Chocolate Snaps (anyone remember those?). Since I am an internet-hunting freak, I just found this whole list of discontinued products that people still covet. So sad!! I am going to spend the rest of the day mourning the death of General Mills Ice Cream Cones cereal, Jell-o Pudding Pops, and Bubblicious Bananaberry Split gum… among other good stuff. (Oh, and now I’m hungry to boot.)-alexis

~Finally the pain in my side (which has been killing me for almost a month) is gone after taking three rounds of antibiotics this month. I must live healthier, and that’s why I joined the gym yesterday to force myself to exercise more to stay strong. It would be good to go there at least twice a week. Must get motivation!-leonie
