It’s cooled down a bit here but I wouldn’t really know because it’s been so busy at work that I haven’t really left my desk. I don’t completely mind though because I’m finally seeing projects come to fruition, which is always fun. Mostly, I’m in a GREAT mood because daylight savings hit and it stays light so much longer. I don’t really have plans for this weekend but I’m hoping to enjoy some sunny weather outside.
For a purchase that was long overdue, I finally got a new cell phone case. I bought my old one out of necessity so my phone wouldn’t be naked and then I just never changed it. A year and a half later, I got this guy on super dee duper sale (I’m talking $8, including shipping) and love it. True, in 6 months I’ll be due for a phone upgrade which will necessitate another new case, but at least I’ll be looking very cute for those 6 months.
It took multiple attempts and several alarms, but I finally snagged my very own Telfar bag. These bags always sell out in under 2 minutes, but I can now say I’ve got a “Bushwick Birkin.” With a tagline of “Not for you – for everyone,” Telfar is making high fashion accessible, and that’s something I can really appreciate and praise. Very happy to support a brand like this.
On Sunday we met up with Matt, Karina, and Leo to go to the Queens Museum. I can’t believe I’d never been! The museum is located in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, which is MASSIVE. I’d previously only been for Mets Games and the US Open but the area has huge park space(s), a zoo, a botanical garden, and this museum. The park was the site of the 1964 World’s Fair and Manhattan’s contribution to the fair that year was The Panorama. The Panorama is a huge scaled model of the 5 boroughs and the museum has essentially been built around it. The Panorama itself was really cool, as was the Tiffany Glass exhibit. There’s not too much else in the museum itself, but it was very interesting and gave us some nice fresh air time as we ran around the Unisphere. My Daddy actually went to The World’s Fair in the 60s and I loved imagining him taking in all the cool exhibits. Honestly, I could totally see the World’s Fair happening now. It’s like Disney and CES combined. Who wouldn’t want to go to that?!
