Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I hope we all can take the time today to be grateful for the wonderful, strong woman who brought us in to the world. I feel so lucky to have such an amazing and supportive mother. She really is my role model and I feel really blessed to have her in my life. Although I’m across the country from her today, I hope she knows how important she is to me.
This week has been pretty low-key surprisingly. I thought it would be a bit chaotic since I was at the ENK Accessorie Circuit for two days, but everything worked itself out.
Here are some of my favorite moments of the week:
1. Finally re-designing LACB.
2. Sitting in Union Square Park for lunch with a friend.
3. Having a mini Disney movie marathon after work with Joe.
4. Catching up with old friends via Instagram. Who knew that this little app would bring us back together so easily?
5. Watching “MacBeth” at the New School for Drama last night and then enjoying chicken parmesan wraps on the way home.
How has your week been? Are you doing anything special for Mother’s Day?
It’s been a really busy, but fun week! The weather in New York has been a bit all over the place, but as soon as the sun came out, I knew I had to take advantage of it!
I picked up this dress on sale at H&M the other day and absolutely love it. Not only is the dress fun and pretty enough for a Sunday brunch, but it’s also subdued enough for the work place or to a dinner date. I love outfits that can easily go from day to night! When you have a relatively limited budget and a small closet, pieces that serve double duty are key. I wish I could find a few more of these in different colors!
#TFF2013, also known as the Tribeca Film Festival, has pretty much consumed my thoughts for the past two weeks, and I’m bummed that it’s over already. It was an amazing experience and truly inspiring especially since I’m an actress.
Joe and I saw Adult World, At Any Price, The Machine, Almost Christmas and A Single Shot and I can honestly say that I enjoyed each film. They were all very different from one another and stuck with me for different reasons, but I really loved how off the beaten path each film felt. A Single Shot was easily my favorite even though I wouldn’t have a clear and concise answer if you asked me why I enjoyed it so much. It was not my typical rom-com (which I usually love because the girl always gets the guy, there’s a happy ending and you don’t have to think too much). It was haunting, shocking and even painful to watch at times, but so gripping and enticing. You definitely have to watch it – hopefully the indie film sees distribution.
Were you able to go to the festival? I want to hear all about your experience!
I love street fairs. I grew up going to swap meets and flea markets, so street fairs are right up my alley. When I first moved to New York last year, Joe and I somehow stumbled upon one in the heart of the city and then never saw it again. However, while we were out and about in Manhattan today, we found one right on 8th Avenue and 14th St!
Roasted corn on the cob, pretty jewelry and the hum of New Yorkers happily enjoying the beautiful spring day were more than enough to make this day great.
Are you planning on heading to any fun events in New York soon? Leave me a comment – I always love spending a day in the city!
