I thought it would be refreshing to kick off the New Year by doing something I’ve never done before in the city — going on a lunch cruise around with my bf and a good friend. The two and a half hour boat ride aboard Spirit of New York went around parts of lower Manhattan, Liberty Island and Governor’s Island. Contrary to some of the reviews on Yelp, the food wasn’t that bad at all (I actually liked the chicken and the pork). The buffet was small, yes, and they only offered two items for desert, but it’s ok. The staff were ultra friendly and helpful — they even put on a song and dance number for us! There were some cringe-worthy moments, of course, like when people started to do the ‘Cha Cha Slide’ and of course, the choice of cheeky and camp music, but, in the spirit of the festive season, it was all fun and good. I liked the overall experience and I don’t mind doing it again.

Browsed Net-a-Porter this morning with my coffee and couldn’t stop myself from falling in love with this cute Proenza Schouler sweater. Would totally look oh so perfect with a white button down shirt underneath and black leather shorts as a bottom. Effortless cool.

Happy new year everyone! Merry 2013 from New York City! I’d like to wish y’all lots of feathers, kisses and Clicquot for 2013! I love you guys. Wherever you are in the world, please stay safe and stay warm.
Always remember — girls with class don’t drink from a glass… (JK)

Every blogger and their lap dog are doing ’2012 in Pictures’ posts as a feeble attempt in
humbleblogging humblebragging. Between you and me, I don’t even know where my 2012 went! I’m not gonna sit here for hours just to regurgitate memories from this year. It’s all about moving forward and charging ahead! With that being said, 2012 has been a banner year and I’d like to thank you all for the support — my beloved partner, my supportive family, my extremely loyal friends, my loving agent, my generous advertisers and sponsors and of course, my dearest readers. But most importantly, I’d like to thank myself for being awesome. Happy 2013!

Talk about cruising attitude to the extreme… all aboard the super chic yacht named ‘Fifty Eight’! This black onyx and gold beauty went around the legendary Bosphorus strait in Istanbul. To those of you who don’t know, the Bosphorus separates Europe from Asia. Thought I’d share some lovely memories from Turkey…

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…

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.

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.
