.About 5 hours….that’s how long we: me and the hundreds of ppl waited to get into Refinery 29’s 29Rooms. 29Rooms is an art & fashion fun house made up with celebrity collaborations steaming from topics of beauty, music, the environment, etc; with each room carrying a different theme. The doors opened at 11am and I got there at 12. I already knew I was going to wait about 2 hour to get it but that was a mental understatement. The line wrapped around the building in a loop and just like every pop-up experience I kept telling myself with the sun beating down on body, the motto: YOLO! Literally about 30 mins from the entrance I was giving a scratch card to hopefully skip the line. Sure enough, blessed from the heavens and foot gods below it was the winning card. Extremely excited I gather the people around me who I chatted with for the 5 hours to skip the line and race inside….”WE MADE IT!!!!” We all screamed & took celebratory pics but once we entered I caught a glimpse of something as I stared into the main hall…MORE FUCKING LINES!!!
To be honest it wasn’t that bad but it’s just the freaking principal!!! Now the main question of this entire experience: Was it worth it?
Yes: because I met some really cool people, 29Rooms was definitely something to be seen and I can say I went & never have to go again & No: because after all of it I didn’t get to see all 29 rooms because of more fucking lines and the memory magically got misplaced after that so I could post when I wanted but I found it. So here are the rooms I made it to…Enjoy!!!
This by far was one of the most glamorous event I have attended. The reboot/debut of The Renaissance Hotel in NYC was beyond what I expected. As you can see by the photo they had lots of beautiful lights. I personally have a thing for lights so I was in heaven.
Not only were there amazing lights but there were 2 photo booths, an all night open bar and some bomb ass finger food being passed about by some very pretty people. I tried to take a good picture of the corn but it almost fell and I needed to save it with my mouth.
The music duo The Knock who I ran into at another event *we’ve never met* played a dj set that got the crowd moving. It was so much going on I think everyone was happy with that but then they brought out the legend Wyclef Jean. He did his thing!!!! He sang his hits, play his guitar and piano, jumped off stage into the crowd, sang and jumped around with us, DJayed and danced with a very cute elderly photographer (I felt it was passed her bedtime). Overall I had an AMAZEBALL time!
*Gotta love his shit*

When you need a getaway…Get Away!
My new motto for 2016 and that’s exactly what I did. My friend and I took a daycation *going out of town for literally one day* to Miami, Florida. I got a decent amount of flack when I spread the word of said trip and most people were like “why for just one day?, that’s stupid, that’s expensive, blah blah blah….”. The plane ticket round trip was only $69 bucks * Thanks Spirit* , I live in New York City and it’s cold here (at least for now), Florida’s beaches are cleaner than ours, plus I lost some weight so I felt like showing off a bit. That day’s adventure included taking an Uber to south beach (the plane landed in Fort Lauderdale), grabbing some food & drinks at Senior Frogs &
getting really drunk before 12pm and then laying out on the beach til it was time to go home. I played in the water like a kid & I enjoyed every bit of it. The SUN. The BEACH. The EYECANDY. It is all a great memory and I plan on doing it all again. For my next daycation I’m aiming to hit up New Orleans! Sadly I was to intoxicated to remember to take any actual pictures because I Snapchatted everything lol
Don’t forget to enjoy life, run with the bulls & check my snapchat for my random adventures! Inattendance
Pretty itty bitty little thing called butterflies where the main inspiration of this seasons collection by Polly Ho of Loom Loop. Butterflies printed everything from maxi dresses to leggings and even trench coats.I felt the head piece and eye glasses worn added an extra bit of edge to it.I thought this collection was very visually stimulating. Enjoy!
