Baked and Wired

I was invited out to catch up with someone that I recieved a scholarship from in high school for college. They basically wanted to catch up and see how things turned out and how things have been going on in the job world after school.

She choose for us to get cupcakes and I only thought there was a Georgetown Cupcake but come to find out there is another spot that has been there longer called Baked and Wired. I got an iced hot chocolate and a chai cupcake…YUMMY!!! It was so good!

Take a look at this cool cupcake spot::::::

NYFW 2011

Ok my weekend went a little something like this…..I ended missing my first bus to NY….bummer but got on the bus that was 30 mins later so it worked out. When we got to NY, we mapped out where we were going and when we got to the hotel, the system was down for like 3 hours. I was slowly getting frustrated because we were sitting around doing nothing. So when they finally got our room, it ended up being extremely small….like NYC makes everything tiny…LOL, it’s sad. We started to get ready for our evening which we had some slight plans for different spots. We first stopped by Sephora on 59th, nice little mall and went up to Samsung which is where they were doing Nars make up consultations. It was a really cool Samsung where you could try the 3-D tv’s and they had little home vignettes which was cool.

After this we headed to a club called Providence that I had been to before. We got there a little early so I got some cheesecake from the spot next door…it started out tasty but ended not being extremely great. It was a cool crowd. The dj did pretty good. I love DJ’s in NYC. We stayed here for a while waiting for our friend that got lost, we got so lost in NYC and missed 1 stop that took a whole hour to get back to, crazy! We were viewing some foolery there with a woman taking her underwear off…#WTDTA…disgusting. It was so nasty. Anyway our friend finally got there and we headed to the next party which was supposed to still be going on but when we got there, it was empty. We were looking around like is this a joke, but come to find out, a fight broke out and it got shut down. We had to come up with our next move which ended up being our best move. We ended up at a party where Q-tip was the DJ, Kid Cudi was there chillin, and then Taraji P was there dressed extra regular just having a good time. We partied so hard here. Q-tip didn’t play anything off the radio, it was so cool and the music was old school. It made me feel like I was in the 80’s. Anyway before we knew that that was Taraji, she was dancing all crazy in front of the DJ booth then tried to pull one of my friends to battle and we were like who is this chick and as soon as we found out it was here, I snapped a pic and her security guard got mad…OOPS…my b! LOL. But the night ended up getting even more fun. We started pumping through the club…lol…and I think one of Taraji’s security guards starting pumping, we were like whaaaa….oh ok…LOL!

Saturday which was our last and final day to do anything, we decided to try to stop by the Lincoln Center and we got twisted and turned around and ended up heading to brunch extremely late. I decided to go to the same spot that we went to last time with a friend. It is called Macondo. When I say everything there tastes great, it just does. We all got the unlimited Mimosas….YUMMY!!!! =) After this, a friend that we made in NY took us over to the Lincoln Center, extra cool guy. Be looking out for Rich February, he has some pretty cool music too. We got to the Lincoln Center and just took in the ambiance for a little bit, it was cold. We then decided to head to the networking event that we signed up for and it was a nice little crowd there, I gave out a few cards and conversed with a few new faces while we all drank wine…yums! After this, we headed back to the hotel and everyone was beat. We all took naps and then didn’t end up heading out until 1:30am….only in NY can you do that and the party would still be going on…LOL. We headed to a spot called Gold Bar which was one the coolest bars/lounges I have ever seen. They had these huge mansion doors that you entered, then you went through a curtain….it was DOPE! It was a bunch of drunk cottonballs bumping into us but all in all cool spot! After this we called it a night!

My Weekend Adventures

So where do I begin? My Friday started off with shopping around for an upcoming styling gig. I found a few bits and pieces but I am picky and I like things to look a certain way so I only purchased a few things. I became even more of a fan of GAP with their great pieces for Spring. I tried to make it to GW’s bookstore but I was little bit too late….*sigh*….I was hoping to be done with the out of the way places but such is life.

But anyway Saturday continued with more looking and I found what I needed. Metro Center is an excellent shopping location especially the Forever 21 and the new spring collection for H&M….*dies*. I met up with a friend that I haven’t seen in forever. There are some high school friends where it feels like you pick up from where you left off…I love friendships like that. =) My evening included a friend’s 25th birthday gathering at a nice spot out in VA. It was really cute and I got to catch up with another friend from college. I love my aggies…we all have some interesting stories to tell. This night got better by deciding to party at Reserve in VIP which gave us some room to chill if we wanted to. I ran into a few familiar faces which was cool because I rarely go out these days. This night ended up being extra fun!

Sunday was a short day to do anything extra, I had to pick up the last of the clothing. I ended up stopping in Crumbs and I was extremely impressed with the cupcake that I tried, I am a serious fan now. I then rushed to work and that was the end to my weekend.

Take a look at my weekend……..

Fabric from the old showroom I worked at….how cool!
The levels….lol

Birthday GIRL!

Get into it!

Anthropologie = My Weakness

I was on my lunch break and indulged into a foot long sub at subway which they now have all their foot long subs for $5 #WIN! So I relaxed and ate lunch and read the Express paper. I had to escape my job and have some time to myself, work gets extra crazy sometimes and I need serenity NOW! Well anyways after lunch I stopped in Anthropologie and they are having a SICK sale. I saw some shoes that I wanted for $80 and in my size but I am going to NY next weekend so no shopping for me until after that trip.

I was about to leave the store when they told me some amazing necklaces got some major markdowns. I got an $108 necklace for $20…a TOTAL WIN! In the process of getting this necklace I found out that Anthropologie has a little company card program where they keep track of your purchases and you can get a discount on your birthday….luckily my birthday is right around the corner. =) Anyway to scan my purchase, they used an apple iphone or ipod with a scanner it was so interesting. They scanned my item and I entered my email where my receipt was also emailed to me as well as given to me at the store. I also attempted to sign the screen with my finger which was a fail, but look how technology is taking us to new heights, it’s pretty amazing.

Take a look at my new treasure……….
