The Dutch

One word: overrated. 

Sure, the block The Dutch sits on couldn’t be cuter (great views of both the Empire State Building and 1 World Trade), and the interior is just as fun, but as for the food… I was underwhelmed.

Since we went on Ash Wednesday, I did all I could to avoid eating meat, aside from the small bite of Mike’s fried chicken I tasted.  I took one tiny bite for more than one reason… the sauce was terrible.

I ordered the sea bass for my entree, which was good, but not completely amazing.

Two things I did find amazing:  two giant glasses of wine on the house, and the yummy sorbets.

good old fashioned trip to the mall

Some fun pieces I found at my local mall that I may or may not be adding to my spring 2012 wardrobe.

Bottom Right

I received an email from one of my girlfriends and all it said was “bottom right” with this picture attached.

Needless to say, I was soon laughing out loud at my desk.

If Only…

I had an extra $2,000 laying around…

Yves Saint Laurent Double Y Tote

I think I may even like this more than the Celine Luggage Tote

giving up

I’ve decided to give up Coke Classic for Lent again this year, and I had my last sips of ice cold goodness at Otto last night.

Now that I think of it, I should really be giving up more than Coke.

Is it possible to give up overindulging for Lent?  …Overindulging in sweets, overindulging in food, overindulging in clothes, overindulging in bad reality TV…

Something to think about for next year, I guess!

The Dog Strikes Back

I know that the Super Bowl ads are kind of old news now, but I seriously can’t get enough of the Volkswagen commercial that aired this year.

It makes me want to cry, and laugh, and smile all at the same time.  I like it more and more each time I see it, which makes this the second year in a row that VW killed it in the creativity department.  SO cute.

tale as old as time

I somehow managed to persuade Mike to see “Beauty & the Beast” in 3D with me over the weekend, and it was just as magical as I remembered.

Not to mention, “Be Our Guest” was pretty incredible in 3D.

Window Shopping

Just playing on Serena & Lily right now… customizing beautiful furniture and paint colors for my future dream home.

sailor inspired

The last time I purchased anything Juicy Couture was probably over five or six years ago… Of course it was a terry cloth or velour jumpsuit (I still wear these when I’m lounging around my apartment. They may not be “cool” anymore, but that doesn’t mean they’re no longer comfortable.  Don’t judge me).

It’s really no surprise that I’ve shied away from purchasing anything under this label, being that it brings back memories of high school and freshman year of college, going to class in an insanely overpriced, monochromatic sweatsuit, but I can’t resist a good navy and white striped dress.

And this is a really good one.
