1/20,000 meals.


This meme is so funny and too accurate for the start of our date nights:
{source: ifunny.co}

We went on an adventure to check out an all you can eat Korean BBQ in Edison, NJ

We've done Korean BBQ a couple of times in NYC and we cook it at home 
and we were excited to try this all you can eat place!

We ate lots of great food! 
The service was friendly and helpful too!

I knew that we had to stop at the bent spoon to try some of this "rice pudding" flavor: 



What I Wore: glasses- c/o Lafont, lips- Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics "Hot Toddy", earrings- Julie Vos "Soho Stud Mixed Metal", necklace- Julie Vos "Coin Charm", dress- vintage, sandals- Sam & Libby {via Target}, bag- vintage Dooney & Bourke {hand-me-down from my mom} 



 Ended our date night with some mojitos 
& some"Stay Sexy Don't Get Murdered" reading outside by a fire 

Went inside to a bully who needed some attention:

Happy (HOT HOT) Weekend!

Faves For Friday :: Back In Black (Anthro Pants that is...) with a French Tuck.

When my beloved black textured "Cartonnier Charlie Ankle" Anthropologie pants died last year,
 I was so sad. I had gotten MANY, many wears out of them, 
 I patched the holes and kept them going but the fabric just got too sheer 
and kept ripping with every wear.

I have been searching for a replacement 
& was so happy to find a pair from downtowncali on Poshmark:

I'm back in black with a French Tuck!
{learned that on Queer Eye on Netflix- loving this show, 
it is so cute! I am ready for the next season.. more on that in a minute}



What I Wore: glasses- Firmoo, lips- Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics "Fussy", top- American Apparel, pants- Anthropologie {via Poshmark}, flats- Chanel  



I have been loving breaking out my custom rings from Alicia Lynn Designs
my hubby found these gems at a work site and I had them made into a set of stacking rings, 
I still love them!
{Mani is an old Revlon Moon Candy "Satellite" polish}


I am not the only one whose backkkkk, 
Queer Eye Season 4 is coming out today on Netflix!

I love this drawing of the Queer Eye cast from @yearofthebloom 🔛 Instagram

& I have lots of other faves to share on this Friday!
I fell in love with this art deco style ring custom from @julielambny 🔛 Instagram,
love how it is modeled after the Chrysler Building
{so gorgeous from this angle}

I just love the architecture in NYC, 
I love these little connecting bridges by Penn Station:

Love this collage from @sonni 🔛 Instagram:

Absolutely love this piece from @sonni 🔛 Instagram too
{this is a big weekend mood for me since it will be over 100 degrees in NJ}

I had a good laugh at this post shared by @dailyharvest 🔛 Instagram,
the Instagram account @dogs_infood is definitely worth a follow:

I love this piece from @sallustration 🔛 Instagram
especially because it reminded me of watching forensic files after school with my sisters
{read the closed caption on the TV...}

Have you seen these new tech color changing Louis Vuitton bags?!
WWD shared them on Instagram and they look so futuristic!

 I had to share this plate of spaghetti that my husband made the other night...
I mean, besides the chipped plate, it looks like it belongs in a high end restaurant!
& tastes AMAZING too!


Thank God It's Friday!

"Funky Shit Going Down In The City"




The funky shit is getting out of the city...
Like this breaking news from the first week of July:

Great advice when @NJTransit on Twitter
just says "utilize alternate means of transportation"...

When they do announce a train actually running on a line, 
of course they announce another one on the same track 
so that NO ONE can get down the single flight of stairs to get on the train, 
THIS is what it looks like:

This meme is more accurate than ever:

The other night I had one of my worst commutes yet, 
this is what it looks like when thousands of people try to board the only train 
that has run on a heavy commuter line in over an hour:


How is this okay?!
I had to run down the track and jump on the first spot that I could fit

My commute has been so bad recently
 that I was actually interviewed by The New York Times about it.


"Commuting with N.J. Transit is a disorganized, chaotic nightmare" - Emma Zielinski

Maybe I wouldn't have to be such a whistle blower 
if I didn't have to pay $451 a month for this absolutely terrible service.
Since that article, my train home has been canceled 
at least three more times so far this month,
leading to VERY crowded usually single decker trains 
with three times the amount of people on them.

HORRIBLE.

Thank god I like my job, 
because this is sometimes my morning commute too:

At least I get to wear my leopard pants & I love my Kate Spade taxi flats:


What I Wore: glasses- WhereLight, earrings- Julie Vos "Soho Stud Mixed Metal", necklaces- Julie Vos Cairo Delicate Necklace in moonstone & labradorite {currently on sale!}, lips- Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics "Hot Toddy", top- Anthropologie, pants- Old Navy {hand-me-down from my sister-in-law}, flats- Kate Spade



Guess the commute is worth it to be in the city where all the action is happening!

Although I can't help but think that the squatters in Episode 261 of 99% Invisible 
had the right idea with "adverse possession" & "sweat equity",
this episode is really interesting and worth a listen:

With my shitty commute & canceled trains,
 I may have to start squatting.
