Hey all-

VERY exciting news! Basically the reason why I haven't updated in so long:

Sony BMG and Epic Records signed a new artist! Her name is Lenka, and she kinda sounds like Regina Spektor, but totallly better. Anyway, they decided to hold her record release party at Dylan's! It was absolutely awesome! 

Our entire third floor was transformed into a music venue, and I got to meet Lenka herself, her entourage, and even the CEO of Epic Records! It was absolutely nuts!! Here are some pictures:

This is her new single, CHECK IT OUT!!

The Show - Lenka

Soft hair and Sweden!

Hey all :]

I have an interesting story, to say the least. 

All right, so I was at Katie's house, reading Cosmo, when I found out that putting olive oil, mayonnaise, and eggs in your hair can actually strengthen it! I was so amazed, that I decided to give it a shot! Here are some photos of the hilarity that ensued: 

Call me crazy, BUT IT WORKED!! My hair was smoother than a baby's behind! You should all try it, its just 1/4 cup each of olive oil, mayo, and eggs, and voila! SOFT HAIR!!

PS- Don't ask me why I'm wearing a towel. Hahah :]

Today at work, we met a bunch of amazing people from Sweden. They were awesome. I wish I could have remembered their names, but they were too hard to pronounce/remember. Anyway, we learned that college is free in Sweden, and the government pays for your housing and gives you money while you go to school because they don't want you to work! OH MY GOD. I really need to think about going to Sweden!

They told me about this place online where you can find people your age in other countries who are willing to let you sleep on their couch because you don't have a lot of money for hotels. I think I'm going to look into that, it would be great to travel Europe sometime soon!!

I went to see the water downtown, isn't the view of New Jersey beautiful?

Then I stopped to see some puppies in the window. I NEED ONE!!

Meeting Blake Lively :]


We were cleaning up at work on Thursday night, and LeslieAnn told us that she thought she saw Blake Lively shopping in the store downstairs. Of course, our first reaction was to drop everything, scream, and run downstairs. haha.

Upon doing so, we definitely found Blake Lively buying candy! For those of you who don't know Blake Lively, she was in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and is now in Gossip Girl. We made her sign a mini bin and fill it with candy (we do to all the celebrities), and then forced her to take pictures with us. She was SOOOO nice! She kept telling us how nice it was to meet everyone, and her dad even took my card! He told me that he may be back one day to throw a party. I. WOULD. DIE. 

There were also Oompa Loompas at work today. Is this not the most degrading job EVER?

Me, Mariah, Nowani, and LeslieAnn went out after work to El Cantinero. El Cantinero is a stuffy little Mexican restaurant downtown that is like a constant fiesta. We wanted to go to Harlem and get soul food, but Sylvia's was closed, and El Cantinero stays open late. 

GOOD THING THEY DO, TOO! We stayed until 1 in the morning, and I'm sure our waiter hated us. Hahah....

No work today. I am going to buy things for my room. I need new picture frames....

Katie moves in!

Hey all :]

What a busy weekend!!

Basically my entire weekend was consumed by work, and helping my best friend Katie move in to her new apartment! She just got this beautiful high rise apartment on the 14th floor of a beautiful building with a view of the river that is to die for!! She even has a balcony! Katie's mom recruited a man off of the street to do our heavy lifting for us... hahah. That was an adventure! I went with her to drop the rental van off downtown, and remembered why I will never drive in NYC.

We discovered a really great restaurant right by her, and I tried motza for the first time! OH. MY. GOD. It is SO GOOD! I swear, ever since I had it, I've been eating it up at work like it's the last thing I'll ever have (except the motza at work is covered in chocolate... probably not so good!). I encourage you all to go out and try motza! It's delicious! ALSO, make sure you experiement cooking with cumin powder... it's some of the best stuff I've had!

Work has been absolutely amazing. I now have new responsibilities, meaning that I am there A LOT more than I used to be! I love it though, because I absolutely LOVE my job. I seriously think that as each day goes by, I realize more and more that I have the most amazing job in the world. I feel blessed, because not many people are able to say the same. I never liked kids until I started working this job, and now I can't wait to see them every day!!
