My New Year's Eve look is a bit different this time around. I tend to opt for a dress, but I thought - why not switch it up a little? Maybe I can wear a romper that resembles PJs, because what's New Year's if not one big pajama party? At least for me, because I tend to fall asleep with a glass of champagne in one hand and Kathy Griffin yelling in the background from overcrowded Times Square, as we're all waiting for the ball to drop.
If you have to wait for the train, at least do it stylishly. Not that I was actually waiting for the train, but hey, I had to figure out how to name this post. The weekend I took these photos, New York was covered in snow. It came almost unnoticed and unannounced, like when Kirk sneaks into Emily Gilmore's dinner without anyone noticing him. (All Gilmore Girls fans, you know which scene I'm referring to...hilarious.)
Shopping for yourself is hard, shopping for others is even harder, and shopping last minute is probably harder than it was for Sisyphus to roll that enormous boulder up the hill. (Leave it up to me to try and make a Greek mythology reference anytime I can. Does it always work? Not sure...) But hey, don't stress, cause I got you. Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas is the only list you really need and as a bonus, I've added a super helpful app to it that might alleviate that stress you're going through. So keep reading and scrolling, cause you never know what you might find.
Coming from a small town in Oklahoma, Lauren Carnahan has first dazzled her hometown audience at the age of four when she performed “Tomorrow” (from Annie) at her hometown church. Little girl, who was adopted at birth and had just survived heart surgery, received a standing ovation from the churchgoers. That was the defining moment of what’s soon to become her life’s calling.
I don't take photos in the City very often, but when I do, I find it to be such a struggle. People are so over people taking photos on the sidewalks. I totally understand that - you're trying to get to work and then BAM! - an obstacle. But hey, the most important thing is your attitude. Patience and kindness go a long way and you need to have a lot of it when you're determined to take photos in a beautiful concrete jungle that New York City is.

Who says rock ’n’ roll is dead? If you do, then you haven’t met Gutxi Bibang. He is an unlikely candidate to carry the rock 'n’ roll torch, a second-generation African from the Basque region of northern Spain. Yet he still has more in common with larger-than-life musical icons like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zepplin, and Peter Tosh than he does with his Basque countrymen. Even his unique moniker speaks of his cultural clash heritage – Gutxi (pronounced “Gu-chee”), a common nickname in his Basque homeland, and Bibang, from his roots in Africa.
