Aloha lovers! I hope you have all had wonderful weekends filled with all the goodness that weekdays just don't seem capable of containing. Like waking up late and chocolate chip pancakes. Or a myriad of sporting events and girl talk. The second was what my weekend agenda had on tap. You have no idea how fun it is to bond over a shared lack of golfing ability, or, even better, a shared love of cute baseball playing butts in tight pants :) Ladies, you know what I am talking about, and you know I'm right.
So I know it is taking me forever to get through my NYC/fashion week trip recaps, but each event was too amazing to not give each its own post, and I really want to share each of my adventures with you. Mainly because I am hoping to entice all of you enough that you will join me in NYC next time. Is it working? :) After a wonderful first day in NYC with IFB and Stranded Blogger, I continued the fun Thursday night with Fashion's Night Out! For any of my long-time readers (aka my mom and maybe 3 other people, lol) you might remember that I was in the city last year for FNO, but didn't really participate in anything. This year I knew where I wanted to go and made a plan of attack. Somehow, I still only managed to make it to a few places!! The event is just so crazy, and electric that you get sidetracked and enjoy just wandering around browsing. The best laid plans, right? I did hit up Betsey Johnson for several hours, and had a blast sipping bubbly and getting my hair done. Then I was able to meet up with Alex and browse through Kate Spade while being serenaded with some absolutely terrible, but awesomely fun, karaoke. We ended the evening with a late night burger and fries at SoHo Park and then I got my first lesson in navigating the subway, or train as the real New Yorkers say. It was a whirlwind of a night, but a total blast. I really liked getting to see SoHo area, and think it would be a place I'd spend a lot of time if I was ever to relocate to the city that never sleeps. Enjoy the photos, and I will have the last two NYC segments (blogger's night out and Hillary Flowers fashion show) up this week. Then we can continue on with regularly scheduled posts!
