The White House

30/12/2012, Current Affairs, Max Mara, Phillip Lim, Washington DC

The best way to tell whether my boo feels safe or not is by looking at the pocket where he keeps his cellphone. If he feels safe, he’d put his cellphone on the back pocket of his jeans. If he has doubts, he’ll put it in his front pocket. While walking to the White House, I told him, well, Washington D.C. is probably the safest place in America right now, with what, big brother watching from every imaginable angle possible, even from the sky! He then rebutted, well, a small town in Alaska is probably the safest. To which I replied, “I can see Russia from my house!”

No visit to the nation’s capital would be complete without stopping by the venerable White House. Can I just say that it looks much, much smaller in real life than how it looks on television? Proof that television and cameras add 10 extra pounds…

Embellished

29/12/2012, Accessories, Current Affairs, Phillip Lim, Rebecca Minkoff, Washington DC

Finally, some new things for the new season. Snap! Fall 2012 went just like *that*. I’m thrilled that Resort 2013 merchandise are trickling in… I bought this cute embellished sweater at 3.1 Phillip Lim store in Soho the other day. Obsessed with it.

Monumental

28/12/2012, Current Affairs, Washington DC

I’m obsessed with Washington D.C. It is now, without any doubt, one of my favourite cities in America. My second favourite city actually, after my home, New York City. I must say I’m kind of disappointed with myself for waiting until NOW to visit the nation’s capital. Washington D.C. is gorgeous, it’s clean, it’s monumental, it’s powerful. You can feel the power in the air wherever you go. Everywhere you look is a fucking blog back drop waiting to happen. This city requires an extended stay (and a personal chauffeur and lots of outfits) in order to maximize the architecture for blog posts. I haven’t even left yet and I already can’t wait to visit again.

From Laguardia to Dulles

27/12/2012, Current Affairs, Marc Jacobs, Prada

What was meant to be a 40-minute flight from NYC Laguardia to Washington Dulles airport turned into a seven hour nightmare — something about the weather, how they had to change planes, blah blah blah. I’m just happy I’m here in Washington DC. We left my apartment at around 2PM and it’s 10:38PM and I’ve just checked into my hotel room. I’m visiting to see my aunt who I haven’t seen in about two years and my cousins who I literally haven’t seen in almost two decades. It’s gonna be cray cray!

The Pierre

27/12/2012, Accessories, Balmain, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Handbags

Meet the ‘Pierre’. It’s the new, limited-edition bag soon-to-be-released by Balmain in collaboration with the chic jewelry designer Aurelie Bidermann. Everything about this bag is pure perfection. I love the size (the bag can fit my day-to-day essentials plus my camera), the luxurious materials (love the suede and the ultra soft leather interiors) and of course, the faux ivory tooth detail. Easy, effortless and oh so cool…

Dude, Where’s My Pram?

26/12/2012, Adrienne Landau, Current Affairs, New York City, Rebecca Minkoff

With the exception of Williamsburg, IKEA and Brooklyn Crab in Red Hook, Brooklyn is pretty much uncharted territory for me. I really should explore this part of the city more often, considering some areas of it is just a few stops away on the subway from my place. I went to Brooklyn Heights earlier for lunch. That area is gorgeous! I’ve been told that many people from Manhattan move to Brooklyn Heights to start a family. Dude, where’s my pram? With its brownstones and tree-lined streets, Brooklyn Heights must be very pretty during the summer. I can’t wait to go back again. As long as I don’t see an army of hipsters, I’ll be fine.

Christmas in the City

25/12/2012, Current Affairs, Marc Jacobs, New York City

You know how the old Christmas song goes… all I want for Christmas is YOU. For the past two years, I’ve celebrated Christmas day in Stockholm. This year, my beloved bf and I agreed that it’s his turn to come visit me in New York. Afterall, I’ve been living in the city for the almost half a year now and he still hasn’t seen my apartment beyond the realms of Skype. He arrived here yesterday afternoon — and I’m so happy he’s here! My Christmas Eve and Christmas day was amazing in every sense. OK, fine, all we need is a blanket of snow to make it perfect but you know what, nothing in this life is so I’m not gonna complain.

How did you spend your Christmas day? My boo and I hauled our carcasses out of my apartment and strolled around Central Park and around the Upper 70s and Park/Madison. I love this area of New York, so peaceful, quiet and the buildings are beautiful. Maybe this time next year or the year after, I’m gonna move into an apartment with a fireplace. We’ll see. I hope y’all are staying warm kiddies. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
