The Pop Five

October 5, 2012

This week’s pace was much slower than usual for me (which admittedly feels a bit strange). I’m wrapping up a couple of writing projects in preparation for the baby’s arrival next month, but finding myself in a limbo-land of sorts between what’s next versus what is in the here and now. The highlights:

So jealous of this photograph … my husband had a shoot yesterday at the Bellwood Quarry with Anthony Bourdain to promote his upcoming show airing on CNN in 2013.

I was one of several writers that attended a luncheon with Aida Mollenkamp in conjunction with her gorgeous new cookbook, Keys to the Kitchen. She is as smart and lovely in person as she appears on television.

I helped host an event called the Midtown Mommy Mixer at Bobby Berk Home last weekend and it was so much fun! The three of us pictured are all expecting within weeks of each other. It was fantastic to meet other ladies in the same stage of life.

I caught up with friends at this spot … because sometimes you really don’t need a fancy night out, a hot dog and good conversation will do just fine.

I stumbled across this gem of a tutorial. Over the top nail art is nothing new (and did you know navy is the color of choice this fall?). But, this sweet and seasonal how-to courtesy of is beyond cute.
