A few comments about the new-ish Dream Hotel Downtown in New York:
1) Great boutique hotel.
2) Terrific continental breakfast. I’m not a big fan of bread or carbs but the pastries here are DIVINE.
3) Do not get a room on the 2nd floor of one of the North Tower. Avoid at all costs unless you’re a night owl. Rooms are directly above one of the clubs and the noise level is INSANE.
4) The bathrooms are spacious but the sinks are VERY poorly-designed. I had to wash my face using the shower and brushed my teeth/spit in the toilet bowl.
5. Room service food is awesome.
I went to this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last night for the first time. I never thought I’d have fun in what seemed to be an over-stylized underwear show but I did. I really did. Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z and Maroon 5 performed. You know me — I don’t really keep track of celebrities or pop culture but I think I have a newfound crush with Adam Levine. Yeah, me and the rest of the world. Boo.

It’s such a shame that no one was allowed to bring cameras therefore I wasn’t able to capture special moments. Before the show, I had a chat with the fierce Kate Lanphear, exchanged kisses with the stunning Giovanna Battaglia. Carine Roitfeld also went there — with Alexander Wang. The odd fash people aside, I have never seen so many, errm, mature men in suits and tuxedos in the audience. Yep. A lot of bow ties.
Anyhoo, I had lots of fun. It was not your ordinary show.
For a blogger, photographic evidence carry a lot of weight. No photos, no care. Since we weren’t able to take photos at the show, Rumi and I took home these gold and silver star balloons from the show. The first thing that came to my mind when they fell from the Armory ceiling was…. oh my god, blog props!
