Nothing gets better than Bagpipers in yellow "kilts" and me in a lime green dress for a rum promotion.

haha, hope everyone had an awesome St. Patrick's Day :)

Levi's Chambray - The Official Sponsor of Sugar Daddies Everywhere

Now I'm not going to lie, seeing photos of an older moderately attractive man with a super young model pasted all over the Columbus Circle subway stop definitely caught my attention. And it did make me check out Levi's Chambray which was in all fairness a pretty awesome line.

But, really? Couldn't have they at least found an attractive male celebrity or older model or something? It looks like recession era average Joe sugar daddies are the new market everyone has to reach. It's like the Dove ads, but for sugar daddies. Like the somewhat curvy Dove girls, Levi's has a moderately attractive model that's slightly younger than their target so they actually have a somewhat realistic goal to aspire to.

The "I'm so cool I get to have sex with girls half my age" photo:

The "I'm about to crap my pants because she just maxed out my credit card" face:

The "I still think I'm young when I'm not" gangster pose:

All I want to know now is if this actually makes more men buy Levi's.

Bubble Tea at Tease!!!

I'm not going to lie, I would never normally go out to 3rd Ave and 27th St just for a bubble tea. I do live in Chinatown and I could totally walk a few blocks for a pretty rad selection of bubble tea. However, my lovely friends at were giving away coupons to try one at Tease @

Anyway, the bubble tea was awesome. I tried coconut with black tea served cold which was super yummy. It was a pretty cool place and the additional options of Thai iced coffee, a pretty good regular coffee selection, and pastries made it a lot more rad than my normal Chinatown spots.

I'm still puzzled as to how my coffee addict self had never made it into Gizzi's Coffeehouse on 8th St and 5th Ave until today. I thought I had pretty much at one point or another gone to every coffeehouse even remotely close to NYU for a much needed caffeine boost, but somehow I hadn't noticed this one until today.

Coffee = pure awesome as far as taste goes. Nice strong brew with a smooth flavor. I hated not being able to put in my own cream though, for real, that's one of the many reasons I hate getting even the basically free coffee at McDonald's. But still, amazing coffee despite the lack of control I had over the milk situation.

The overall atmosphere was pretty rad too. Lots of seating and not enough people to fill every seat (so rare anywhere in NYC on the weekend), a nice mix of chill indie music playing, and a big screen TV playing Charlie Chaplin films. Even the somewhat crazy man humming or meditating or doing something with mouth noises at the table behind me didn't ruin my time there.

They also had the largest selection of blintzes I've seen outside of Greenpoint. I'll probably hit them up for lunch sometime soon to try them.



Flowers on Park Ave

Saw these when I was around Park and 59th yesterday.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I've been crazy busy with work and school. Expect to see more soon though.
