This summer we ran away to sunny Santa Fe. Having New Mexican roots, my spirit was set free at the sight of the desert and the presence of magic in the air. As any best pal, I was super excited to show Kristin all of my favorite places. It’s been a tradition to eat at The Frontier Restaurant immediately upon arrival. I highly recommend their authentic New Mexican cheese enchilada’s served ” Christmas Style ” with both native red and green chili. After feasting up an a good meal, we head to Skip Maisels in Alberquruque for the most beautiful and original Native American Jewelry in all of New Mexico. Skip is a family friend and respected merchant within the Native American community and only carries a one of a kind selection. All jeweled up in turquoise, we are ready to hit the historic plaza to admire the architecture and culture of the ancient city. Make sure to cruise on route 66 to check all the vintage neon signs and motels. Our trip ends with a long adventurous hike that over looks the city, followed by the most beautiful sunset we have ever seen. A little part of us is still left in that desert and we are dying to run back.
We were commissioned by Bloomberg Bussiness Week to create a Dove / Hawk for the story on Janet Yellen and her flight to be the Federal Reserve’s first female chairman. “If she get’s the job, Yellen will convey that she has the head of a hawk and the soul of a dove “. These creatures are a bird of a different feather and we really enjoyed making them.
Four girls ventured out from new york to discover Atlantic City! We started out in a bus line with a $30 round trip ticket from Penn Station. Three hours later we arrived on the board walk! After checking in, we cruised the chic and tasteful lounges Revel had to offer. It didn’t take long until we discovered how to play roulette and lost $80 bucks. Spirits still souring, we tried on our tinniest little black dresses and skirted down to Royal Jelly Burlesque club where we danced the night away to roll & rock and confident babes. When morning came, we craved for something meaty and hardy. We stumbled upon Atlantic City’s best kept secret Tony Boloney’s. One bite of his famous cheesesteak and we were hooked. We ended up taking three subs back with us in our bags back to NY. Long afternoon walks on the boardwalk followed by a Yolo shirt souvenir, kept the mood light and innocent. We have nothing but love and good vibes for Atlantic City and are still thinking about that cheesesteak!
Our good friend Ashley Benzwie and Arielle Tayar spent the past year filming the documentary U R Not Alone. Over the last year, the two have followed a local man on his path to self-destruction through alcohol, drugs, and false hopes. The documentary is about the unlikely friendship that develops between the two young women and this alleged criminal. Please make sure to check out their video and contribute what you can in order to get their story officially produced!!
