Weekend Inspiration

1.  Halloween is right around the corner!  If you are in need of some decorating inspiration, here are 60 ideas for dressing up your pumpkins!


2.  If you’re hosting a halloween themed get-together, here’s a simple recipe for some pumpkin-shaped deviled eggs.  These oeur d’oeuvres are adorable and such a quick fix.  Besides, who doesn’t love deviled eggs?


3. For most of us, it’s inevitable; Cold weather means overlooking extra weight that slips on to keep us warm. It’s easy to let go of our trim physiques when we’re no longer bikini-clad.  Since Halloween usually means revealing costumes, try some Yoga exercises to stay toned a little while longer.  I’ve recently been going to a yoga studio, but as we all know, those aren’t always affordable.  Try these exercises at home and create your own yoga routine!

Another small glimpse into our lives. Everything from fashion week, our rooftop, kayaking, small gigs, comedy shows, Lady Gaga, visitors, karaoke, street art, Brooklyn, Central Park, and Miley Recreations.

Nobody Allowed, Stay on Roof

Thanks to our foreign landlords, we can twist the meaning of the sign posted on the door to our apartment rooftop. Yes, we understand that frolicking on the roof makes us a liability, but hey, the sign could suggest we are granted permission. Even though we’ve almost exhausted our awesome 360 degree city view, we found some ways to make use of our illegal rooftop once more! 🙂

With the commencement of October comes pumpkin flavored everything (beer is our favorite), crisp strolls through central park, and warm fabric tones.  Since fall weather can be a bit bipolar, find ways to make seemingly summer pieces work by throwing on tights, a beanie, or adding boots. This ensures that you are season appropriate but also unlikely to have a heat stroke on the warm days. At night, add a leather jacket, blazer, or cardigan to deal with the chill, and your outfit is officially fall-proof. (click to enlarge photos)
