are the boots? are they tights? yes! they're both!! met this super cool chickie at sundance who made the very cool fashion item, bootights which are tights designed exclusively for wearing boots. they are clever, and cozy and comy and cute. since boots are de riguer for the urban fashion set, this is a must have item for the sock drawer.

sundance state of mind

I have been chillin in the snow at the 2010 sundance film festival in park city, utah this past week. met a ton of very cool entertainment peeps and got gifted with some very cool gifts. KSINO's gibson guitar lounge was the hit of main street. the twitter house was a ton of fun and adrien grenier's talk on twitter was eye opening. chefdance held at harry o's in celebration of the boys and girls club of america was delicious and super fun and the son of the babylon, the film we saw yesterday was heartbreaking. thank god we had the dreamy cloud sake at shabu to wash away the pain.

hair there.

in anticipation of the big sundance trip, I've decided to go loooong. and by long, I mean add extensions and about seven inches of length to my hair. after a short search on facebook, my roomie and hair stylist extraordinaire, meg d. of salon V fame in the east village on 7th and ave A. came to the rescue. we bought the hair and the locks st and went to work. meg slaved over my head for five hours?!?! adding 200 individual pieces to my head. if you're in nyc and thinking of extensions or even not in nyc but need a professional that does a bang-up job, holler at meg d. she'll hook a sister up.

coffee crush

I'm in love with oslo coffee on bedford in williamsburg. I had this thing going with starbucks every morning and although they treated me right, I don't always support the things the company supports. so I moved on. and found my main source of juice. oslo makes you straighten up and fly right. a small cup in the morning with a dash of skim keeps me going through mid-afternoon and never skitzes me out. it delicious. it nutritious (well, that I am not sure of but it rhymes). if you're in BK, don't miss the chance to sip this sweet dream.

silver is the thing at the golden globes

if u watched the golden globes last night you'd see that silver is the color of the season. from the presenters to the winners, many of the ladies were draped in sparkly silver from head to toe. if you've got an event coming up, consider this metallic moment in time.

thread count

as a woman of Italian-American descent, my facial hair grows dark. and quick. gross, I know. but that's the way my cannoli crumbles. I get my lip and eyebrows waxed every two weeks to prevent looking like dominic the donkey. I did a six month series of laser hair removoal and nada. nothing honey. hair grew back in two months. this past week in nyc, I came across a beauty epilation that may change my life forever: threading. threading is an ancient method of hair removal which originated in India. artists use a pure, thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over untidy hairlines, moustaches and so on, plucking the hair at the follicle level. it hurts but dayum girl, it looks good. and lasts. which is most important. I'm sold. for now.

a jetsetter love letter

dearest norwood, it was such a pleasure to meet you the other night. I love your location and the layout and design are sooo pretty to look at and be in. I don't even mind the membership requirement. almost like a cooool country club for the nyc boho chic set. reminds me of the country club I dreamed of belonging to when I was a teenager. the owner alan is a hospitable dream and the scene is so very. call me.
