Just got back from an epic trip with my HS friend Megan....

Flew into NY, stayed with Brit's fiance Mike in Park Slope. Walked the Brooklyn Bridge

They say the Empire State Bldg is not all it's cracked up to be.
I dunno, I that it was pretty much ALL it's cracked up to be, incredible

Free Ferry to Staten Island was a major Highlight

Visited Wall Street, thought we were in an amusement park

Explored where our Commander in Chief does his business.
(well, not that business)

When in DC, eat like the Russians do. I want to move in to Russia House

Hands down, the best way to see all the monuments and
a major highlight of the trip

After a close call with the Shuttlebus to IAD, drinks weren't even a question.
The shots were a no-brainer at $3 each


Thank you to Mike Cadoux, for your hospitality, even minus your other half (Brit, who was busy being amazing and exploring the Chilean Coast) who gave us a comfy place to stay while taking over Manhattan. And also for your food recommendations. Everyone must eat at Rubirosa at least once in their life.
Thank you to Mitchell who forced free drinks into our hands and made sure that Megan and I had at least 1 night of not sleeping in the city that never does either.
To the iTrans NYC app on my iphone, which helped me to navigate the subways with ease and make me look like I actually know where to go
To Jojo who is BAD to the ASS. Girl works for the Whitehouse, and is so good at what she does. I'm so proud of this gal, so freaking accomplished and only 26. I want to be like her some day.
To Jojo, who only a week after shoveling some of her family members around town, happily took us to literally every single place she took all of them to. She is DC's best tour guide. And she's also one of those really great friends. She made us pancakes with strawberries and eggs. And Coffee, and guacamole. And she brought us to cool bars and restaurants. I could go on and on. THANK YOU JOJO, you "blow my mind."
Finally, thank you to Megan. You were a pure delight to travel with. Couldn't have picked a more chill individual to site-see ourselves into exhaustion which will surely last for the rest of the week. You're a real woman now! haha

Who am I kidding

So I think it's quite apparent that I'm a terrible blogger. I mean, I'm not a blogger, and I'm terrible at writing entries. I think the main reason is because my 9-5 job is slowly morphing into art director/web site and content developer/photographer/filmer/film editor and now PR chick. So I'm constantly having to come up with text and content for our various marketing ventures. When I get the mental energy to write stuff for my own projects, I try to soak it up by writing product details for etsy. And a lot of times I don't really have interesting things to say. However, I really need to embrace the scope of social media and give myself some sort of goal, which I think is going to be at least 1 entry a week. Even if no one ever even reads it. So here goes.

Forgive me Blogspot for I have sinned. It's been almost 5 months since I last blogged.

I cut my finger today. Really bad. Pictured you see my poorly bandaged
finger and behind that the scene of the crime.

Here are some of my pieces at SEED People's Market in Costa Mesa.
It's one of 3 locations (soon to be 2 more) that I consign my jewelry to!

I'm so tired of this

I have cool friends. Those girls are Bonnie and Lindsey. Linds took me on a tour of Little Tokyo last Saturday. We had the best sangria of both of our lives at Spitz. Drank beer and slammed down sausages at Wurstkuche. Drank every kind of beer at Far Bar, then took the metro home. It brought us back to our days in Europe.

That will do-er for now. I'm already working on another post for tomorrow! Oh golly gee. Highlight of this week so far, knowing that at this time next week I'll be in NEW YORK and then WASHINGTON DC!!!
