Saturday in Manhattan, Sort of…

So… Saturday in New York.  What to wear and what to do. Wear whatever the hell you want.  But if you’re in New York make sure it’s like stylish and organic.  And Vegan.  And there is a word Converse somewhere in your outfit.  I’m pretty sure those are prerequisites of the city life.  I didn’t make them.

Florida That is Not Miami

Ok, so this past weekend I went away to Florida for a few days.  And the whole purpose of the trip was to show my pale body that sun is a very much tangible object.  And we didn’t go to Miami nor Key West, we stayed right in the middle-  in Key Largo.  And this choice turned out to be ...
