Trending now is bucket bags. (Apologies for the title, just finished season 2 of OITNB) Anyways, BUCKET BAGS. They're adorable, can fit everything, and have been found especially for you. Take a peek below for the best of the best in an array of different prices. I just ordered the white version of the Old Navy one, because only bougie people can afford white leather designer bags. So for now I rock the Old Navy version (pictured above with my Sam Edelman Circus sandals and my printed Leith by Nordstrom trousers), but tbh, the bag looks even nicer in person than the picture.

If you're not a member of the cult, then count yourself hundreds of dollars richer. And if you are, you have an ass of steel. Soul Cycle isn't just some ordinary work out at your local gym. Soul Cycle is indoor cycling re-invented. And what they have managed to do, is make it absolutely adorable. Marketing bravo. Take a peek at the website and learn a little more about the practice (which yes I'm addicted to) but then take a look at the shop too! Below are a few of my fav tops from their collection. Visit a location for even more fun and some special edition items!
LET ME TELL YOU RIGHT NOW. LIKE THIS.
I will be forever grateful to www.ladybehindthecurtain.com for the magic she has given us. The invention of the pancake bacon dipper is monumental and I am unsure how I have not heard about this sooner. This is how non-foodies become foodies. I don't think I have ever legitimately cooked a pancake before, but now, I am going to. See, this is how history is made. I am being forced into the kitchen to pretend to be domestic because all I can think about is having these delicious dippers in my belly. I mean or I could just have someone make them for me.... anyone? Annnnyone?
Recipe is as follows:
And I dont have to tell you to "Enjoy..." because... Bacon Pancake Dippers. You guys...
Take a trip over to the deep east side of the island and find yourself at Ave C and 9th Street.

Check out the menu here, and comment below if it made all of your wild dreams come true.

Tucked back in an old building in east mid-town Murray Hill, is a magical world where fashion meets art meets luxury. Dover Street Market is the perfect adventure to take on a lazy afternoon with guys or ladies, when Broadway seems just too hectic to go trail blaze. Dover Street Market is a maze of fashionable displays, from Nike to Louis Vuitton to Comme Des Garcons. Instead of going to a museum with a bunch of taxidermy animals, hit up DSM for a journey through impeccable taste. And beware for the price tags. Unless you like commas, your wallet will most likely stay in your back pocket.
I"m pretty sure this word has been coming out my mouth now for some time, but not until recently has someone had the inclination to tell me that I sound stupid and what the hell does "ish" mean. So in light of this recent event, I will take a moment to fully explain and define my use of the word "ish."
Does it make sense? Does it have to make sense? Is it totally sassy and unnecessary and mildly annoying? You decide. I'll be throwing out "ish"s like they're my ish and all you ish biddies can just be your ish selves and deal with it.
Trending, back-pack swag. They fit everything so much better, they're so much more comfy, and they're cute as hell. If you're not on the chic-pack trend yet, I would hop on at the next stop. Click the following to snag 'em STAT.
If it's not the chic, European tourist strolling through Soho on a Tuesday afternoon, it's the athlete-model who casually throws her outfit together after she has just kicked your ass in Soul Cycle. Everyone's got a LBS. The Little Black Sneaker is a trend that finally gives fashionistas a break in this high-heeled, tight leather sandaled world we know as New York City. We've always known that boyfriend jeans go perfectly with hoodies, and sneakers go great with sweatpants, but we have never been able to wear them out on the street or call them fashionable. Now is our time ladies. If the sneaker-chic trend is something you have yet to grab ahold of, take a look at the following Nike sneaks. Different styles for different sneaker-chic moments provide the perfect guide to finding your your LBS's. The Blazer Mids are a classic Nike throw back, and these special edition textile pair is a hot find for the sneaker-chic game. There are the high-heeled SkyHigh Dunks that add just a little more hight and power to the sneaker-chic look. Next there are the Roshe runs, so incredibly comfortable and just raised enough that they provide support and these monochromatic styled Roshes add an extra pop of style to a sneaker casual outfit. Lastly the Flyknit trainers feel like slippers and wrap around your foot providing a slimming and comfortable street wear look. So fear not the sneaker chic look. And if you don't have your pair of LBSs yet, I'd suggest clicking the links below and getting on it.
This weeks Thirsty Thursday will be spent at Lovers of Today. Located below ground and in a tiny speakeasy setting, this bar is not just intimate but totally cozy amidst the brick walls and dimly lit candle light. The cocktail list ranges from champagne cocktails to bitter whiskey sours. Each one is made with care and precise mixology mastery. I suggest the Rumble for a tequila craving you might have, and then the Waterloo for something a little more herbal and softer. Stop by this Thursday (and F and S) before 8pm and score the 2 for 1 on everything happy hour deal. See you there...
This week's bag contents are all about moisture. Whether its replenishing your sun scared lips, hair and face, or if its your lack of zest in your accessories game, these items are sure to boost you up and get you back on track.
Sometimes Hump Day requires a shake to the routine. I took mine this morning at Van Leeuwan's ice cream shop on East 7th Street and 2nd Ave. If you're looking for a break from the freeze-dried Starbucks pastries, and the watered down Dunkin' Iced Coffee, you are ready for Van Leeuwans. Famous for their ice cream and even more so for their Ice Cream Truck that dots the trendiest areas of NYC, they offer not only homemade, vegan, and all natural ice creams, but their menu also included freshly baked pastries from scones to croissants, and cold-brew Toby's Estate coffee, which is made locally in Brooklyn. I enjoyed an iced-coffee and a crispy croissant while planning out the rest of my week. What will you be having on your next morning get-away?
