Saunder Spring/Summer Release Party

Following the Glitter Vault launch party, Karen and I somehow got into the Saunder Spring/Summer release party! The party was at Salon Hecho and Saunders' film featuring her collection was played on loop on the wall. We were SO excited when we discovered that we were photographed by Guest of a Guest! Goal accomplished. Next goal, photobooth pictures.

Stay adventurous,

Glitter Vault Launch Party!

On November 18th, Karen and I attended the Glitter Vault launch party! There were champagne glasses topped with pom poms, trays of hors d'oeuvres and cake pops at Lounge 48. It was an evening of eating great food, being photographed and trying on the jewelry from Glitter Vault.

On the menu:
roasted almonds, assorted olives, assorted cheeses, roasted baby carrots, shrimp and chorizo skewers, spiced chicken skewers, honey and pineapple glazed meatballs, filet mignon skewers, lobster tail skewers and cake pops

Stay fancy,

Kinky Boots

On November 5, Stephanie and I had the pleasure of seeing the award-winning broadway musical Kinky Boots! One of the perks of being a Stern student is that they have a set amount of funds allocated for NYC cultural events for students. They call these "CACE" events and they're free! Kinky Boots was a great show and I highly recommend it. The actors were so incredibly talented, they had the entire audience laughing (and Stephanie tearing a total of three times). Hopefully, we have the opportunity to check out more musicals during our next four years here!

Enjoying the endless production that is college,

Weekend at RPI

Last weekend, I went to RPI to visit Devan. We went to the Troy Waterfront Farmer's Market and ate chocolate covered Belgium waffles, sampled cheese and other foods from the vendors. On Sunday, we went to Illium Cafe and I ordered berries over French toast, which was delicious. I love visiting RPI and will be back again soon!

Happy traveling,

Ice Dancing in Chelsea

On October 24th, our friend Amy took us to the Ice Theater of New York to watch some of her friends ice dance! Before the show, we got to walk along The Highline and admire some of the nicest apartments in the city. The show itself was amazing, composed of both ballet and jazz inspired dances. There is so much talent in the city, and I can't wait to uncover it all!

Happy Adventuring,
