CitizenM NYC Blogger Launch Party!


#CitizenMNYC is such a blur now. Oh man, so much free food, so many free drinks, so much dancing, and laughing, and losing my voice and not sleeping. It was crazy. Like total chaos! I loved Alex Winston as the musical guest (hella talented), I loved Mike Perry’s drawings. I loved The Bumbys. I loved it all. If you’re coming to stay in NYC, check out CitizenM. It’s such a great place to stay.


My darling Ken, who is my husband unofficially. 



Doing that thing where I’m 100 years old secretly and obsessing over light fixtures.


Feel free to swoon over the cake pop selection, because I totally did.


Mike Perry and his googly eyes, man. So much to say (below, obviously).


The fashioniest fashion bloggers were there. I was praying for an impromptu makeover session, but no such luck. I did get to stand near Christina Caradona’s fro, but I don’t feel like I absorbed any of its powers.

The ‘Polar Vortex’ Is Coming Back!

Also known as a cautionary tale for those who wear winter coats that are colors other than black (…like perhaps a big ass blood orange coat), and did not get them dry cleaned last year so it’s all dirty around the edges but it’s never not too cold to be wearing it so you can’t ever drop it off so you have to constantly notice how gross the sleeve openings and pockets look. 

I. Cannot. Deal. With. This. Weather. Anymore.

Now announcing our October Flavors of the month! 

#95 Snick or Treat

"Trick or Treat, give me something good to eat." Okay, how about a pint of our Snick or Treat flavor? We adapted our recipe to mimic that of the perfect snickerdoodle - half regular sugar, half brown sugar, and plenty of cinnamon, and, as every cookie baker has, our own dash of something special. Each bite is like a cold, creamy snickerdoodle cookie. But not only that, we went meta on y’all and threw in some soft-baked Snickerdoodles from our gal-pals at Sweet Loren’s.

#96 Candy Corn

We did it. We’re doing it. In the name of Halloween indulgence, we’re ditching our au naturale vibe and going straight for candy. Candy corn, that is. This is straight up candy corn ice cream made with real candy corn. A childhood dream come true.
