Despite reports to the contrary, people in the fashion industry actually do eat. Not only do they eat, they eat well.
Before I left for Europe, I stumbled upon makeup store Inglot right in the middle Times Square. I was in makeup heaven. I was surprised that not only have I never heard of it prior to this, but I never even seen it before.
Figures why though — the Polish company (pronounced in-GLOT, not in-Glo as I keep wanting to say it) opened their first US outpost in Times Square only four and a half months ago in June 2009. After my first visit, I’m entirely convinced that if it’s color you’re seeking, this is the place to go.
When I got a pack of sugar cookies from Brooklyn bakery, Tasty Morsels, at a recent event, I tried to hide them in the corner of my kitchen counter in an attempt to restrain myself. I tried calling upon my cousins to treat themselves to it before I could.
But the next morning with my tea, I decided it couldn’t hurt to have just one. It’s a soft sugar cookie, with a hard frosting that softens when I dip it in my tea. Sugar rush ensues.
I asked for their yellow daisy buttercream cupcake ($2.25), and Katie got a red velvet ($2.75).
On a side note, I’ve recently noticed everything around me seems to be some form of pink (my phone, my camera, my nails, etc.). I didn’t ask for any specific frosting color — even though they have many — and the woman conveniently whips this one out for me:
Katie’s birthday and I are not friends.
Her birthday somehow always falls on a week when I’m out of town. I tried to make up for it the best way I know how: food.
We went to Co., a pizzeria in Chelsea. It’s a decently big space but still easy to miss on the corner of 24th and 9th since it has no clear markings, besides a big wooden door and window display of their cafeteria-like tables. The whole place is actually outfitted in wood and it almost feels like you’re getting your brick-oven pizza served to you in a log cabin.
We went for the pizza bianca with ricotta for starters.
Assuming what makes me happy, makes you happy.
Among my favorite mascaras are the ones that belong to the Dior family. But running $24-$27 makes them quite an investment. So, when I saw that for a limited time, you can get a full size of Dior’s Iconic mascara along with two mini companions of DiorShow and BlackOut for $29 at Sephora, I was all smiles.
It’s part of their DiorShow Lash Essential Set. If it’s high time for a new lash wardrobe, I say go for this.
