I can't wait to wear it listening to the sounds of waves with the feel of sand between my toes. Our trip can't get here fast enough...

Aren't these trays a beautiful way to store and display perfume bottles, candles, jewelry and other girly knick knacks in a dressing area or bathroom?

The above table would make a great end table (complete with a brightly colored lamp, of course)
which could pull double duty as a tiny cocktail station for parties.
PS: I love Cate and Dave's styling apartment (seen above). Here's a wide shot of their living room complete with lacquer tray table on the left hand side. How delicious is this gallery wall?

It's called Le Paris Bistrot. We stumbled across it in Carnegie Hill this weekend and popped in out of the heat for a little afternoon refreshment (aka a glass of rosé).
Also on the agenda for our day double date with L and D was The "Curious George Saves the Day: The Art of Margaret and H.A. Rey" exhibit at The Jewish Museum. The exhibit features original drawings and dummies from Rey's famous Curious George books

as well as original illustrations of lesser known characters such as Pretzel, the world's longest dachshund,

Spotty, the bunny who looks different from the other bunnies,

and Raffy (and all of his 9 monkeys).

The exhibit focuses on this delightful couple's life both in Europe and later in the United States after fleeing from the Nazis in 1940.

Random factoid? Curious George's name was almost...Fifi.

Hey, what does this chart know anyway? I really like "The Hogan."

That was until I spotted this gem.
Who doesn't need their college nickname (so what if you nicknamed yourself during a game of Flipcup) pressed into a piece of copper?
Also, I love these pointy studs!

Best lines? "Bobby stop playing with the robot," and "Go bang your head against the wall."
Best Mom ever!

This homey place has a really reasonably priced pre-fixe brunch (complete with mimosas, of course!) It's ideal for a leisurely catch-up meal.While I opted for the chicken sandwich on a baguette with warm goat cheese (yes, please!), A got the the pre-fixe which came with a delicious piece of chocolate bread.

I know what you're thinking. It looks like someone rubbed a little chocolate on a twist of bread. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The chocolate is baked inside this moist and fluffy pastry. It's sweet, gooey and just plain delightful.
A informed me that Cornelia Street Cafe gets these tasty treats from Amy's Bread right on Bleeker. I bet you can guess what we made a beeline for next.

I know we've all seen every episode of Seinfeld thousands of times, but does this show ever get old? One of my top five episodes has to be "The Gum."
Hardcore Jerry fans, may recall this episode where Kramer takes over an old movie theater and Jerry is forced to pretend he always wears this serious pair of glasses (naturally done in an attempt fool recently released mental patient Lloyd Braun).
I challenge anyone to look at this picture without laughing. Seriously.
