Inside

No, it’s not just you. It just occurred to me too that I’ve been spending a lot of time in the West Village lately! I’m making no excuses for it though — it really has some of the cutest restaurants.

Hot Cocoa and Makeup at Napoleon Perdis’ Apartment

December 28, 2010

Me and Napoleon Perdis!

Sounds heavenly right? Celebrity makeup artist, Napoleon Perdis, invited us to his stunning apartment in midtown for hot chocolate and makeup touch ups. I have been a huge fan of his line for his Auto-Pilot Primer — I mean, he DID coin the phrase “not to prime is a crime.” It’s actually the first primer I’ve ever used (and still use now and then). In case you’re wondering, you would use a little to your face before applying makeup so it sets better and lasts longer.

Westville in the West Village

December 27, 2010

After having a few great eating experiences at Westville East on Avenue A, I thought it would be cool to check out their original outpost in the West Village, simply named Westville.

Westville

It’s probably half the size of their East Village location, but I think the food here is even better. It’s a lot cozier too, but be prepared to WAIT. Well, we went with a party of six, and probably waited a good hour before we got seated. Factor in how cold it is outside (considering the size of the place, you’re gonna wait outside), and an hour feels way longer. It’s worth it though, especially when you’re in the mood for some feel-good, yummy food.

Buffalo Wings

Starting with the buffalo wings, which you HAVE to order if you can. I’m not normally the biggest fan of messy wings, but the chicken practically fell off the bones on its own…it was THAT tender.

Taylor Swift playing with her CoverGirl NatureLuxe goodies

Taylor Swift was just named the face of CoverGirl’s new NatureLuxe Collection (hitting stores next month). I was curious about the line and was sent over a few items from their collection to preview. Their new Gloss Balms are seriously worth raving over.
