Did you hear? We had a blizzard this weekend. After spastically running around town Saturday morning "before the storm hit", the snow finally made its entrance as I was sprinting through Times Square. Oh great.
Anyways. Finished my errands, made my way home, and lounged the rest of the day away with roommate LindsayAnn. It was so nice.
Here is the view from my 9th floor apartment.
We needed a late night dessert fix, so I braved the conditions to get the supplies. It was wonderfully quiet and still.
You know whats really funny? Snow etiquette. On Sunday, most sidewalks were laced with a single pathway, only slightly wider than the width of a shovel. Those sweet doorman and New Yorkers that get after it with the snow plow.... One would think the trickiest part of walking on the slippery sidewalk is trying not to fall. But no. The trickiest part is stepping out of the shoveled path and into the snowy terrain so you can allow the pregnant woman or old man to pass. Not that you mind doing this, but there's no guaranteeing balance when you venture off the path and into the dirty snow drift. It can be quite dangerous! But I made it! Both ankles still in tact.
Of course I stopped by Anthropologie this week to pick up a few last minute Secret Santa gifts. The Rockefeller Anthro is my favorite. Partly because its in a hustle and bustle area of town. Partly because roommate Emily works at the J.Crew around the corner, and its an excuse to see her!
The displays at Anthroplogie are unlike any other. When I first moved to New York, I interviewed for the display coordinator position.
But alas, advertising was in my future....
There was an animal motif going on when I was there.
Beautiful rustic lighting fixtures.
A shredded paper raccoon of sorts!
And would you LOOK at this peacock made out of chopstick's and plastic spoons.
I live in New York City. Love it. Grew up in Dallas, Texas. Miss it. Graduated from Auburn University. 13 reasons to treasure it. So now I work at arguably the world's largest Ad Agency (but let's not argue). By day, I'm disguised as an Art Buyer, but the rest of the time, I'm the Mayor of Street Merch. You know, found furniture left out on the city streets. It's my sworn duty to repair, repaint or repurpose as much of it as I can. After a thrilling experience on HGTV, I knew that home design and lifestyle hosting is exactly what I love doing.
Stay tuned on that, while I sort it all out right here before your eyes. Read on!
