Almost 29 Rooms

.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!!! dsc_47941

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!!!

 

Finally On Time!!!

So this post is the only one so far that will actually be on time. Yay me!!! (Im working in getting better at this) As of today Samsung is releasing its new wearable the Samsung Gear S2. This new sexy (yes it’s sexy) watch I’m in 2 different style the sport & the classic. At a party held by Refinery 29 & Samsung at its Soho studio, the watch was on full display along with drinks, finger foods, music and a photo booth. The new watch runs on android where so it is now able to be used on any android phone unlike it’s previous counter parts. They are also giving you the option to have a 3G data connection (only with the sport model) so you can use sim card, making that watch a full fledged phone. The classic model will be bluetooth only.Hopefully has a longer distance than normal  which was about 30 feet. One of its coolest is feature is the rotating dial on top which let you select app with just a turn to the right or a turn to the left. Just like most watches you’ll be able to make phone calls, respond to text messages and view emails & of course there will be an app store for watch dedicated applications. Over all the watch is a fun new gadget for tech lovers ranging at a price point from 299 to 400 (depending on which one you get). Will I get it?  Probably not because the way my pockets to setup…..lol Plus I already have a Gear 2 with a built in camera, so that new watch won’t see my wrist anytime soon unless someone wants to buy it for me  *Hint Hint*.
