The fabulous life in the BK

Yesterday Matt, his sister Brianna, and I made a trip to Brooklyn for the day and night. We had every intention of getting there early to hit up the fantastic Brooklyn Flea I have heard so many good things about! Unfortunately, we got there muy late no thanks to the worse than usual traffic on 24. So we kind of missed the flea market. Not to worry though, we got a fantastic tour of the whole dang city!

Hat: Urban Outfitters, Sweater: H&M, Ring: Forever21

The main reason for our trip was to meet up with Matt’s parents for dinner at the one and only Peter Luger Steakhouse! yum, yum! Before we met for dinner we stopped at this adorable little bar, Dresslers on Broadway, basically across the street from PL. (yeah, I’m cool, I abbreviate it). We had some time to kill so we thought we’d stop in for a cocktail or two. The place was amazing! Such a great atmosphere in there and the bartenders were the friendliest people! And they make delicious cocktails as well! How can you beat that? I had a Raspberry Beret, which was a delicious mix of Prosecco, St. Germain, and fresh raspberries. And it was a pretty shade of pink. It was overall the most wonderful drink I have tasted in quite some time. Matt got the usual dirty martini and Brianna selected a drink that was pretty much a plethora of herbs and spices and alcohol hah. It was some mix of tequila and jalapeno peppers and cilantro amongst other things. I could do without the produce section in my drinks, but she was pleased. Matt and Brianna snacked on some raw oysters before we headed over to dinner. I did not partake in that activity for fear that I may vomit. There were oysters on the plate that looked like the pig ears we used to buy my old dog to chew on. I simply could not stomach it. But based on the rest of the menu and the way these two reacted to them, I’m sure they were fantastic if you are an osyter fan.

Basically we had to tear ourselves away from the bar stools to make it to dinner because we liked this place so much. They do a wonderful Sunday brunch that I just may have to get up early for one weekend. If you’re a frequent BK visitor, or one of my many friends that currently lives in Brooklyn, have you guys been here before? What’d you think? If not, I recommend it! GO! Eventually we cross the street and make our way to Peter Luger’s, which is pretty much like walking into a time warp. It very much reminds me of something you would see on Boardwalk Empire walking in and seeing the front bar. We sit down and Brianna has our order memorized because apparently it is “frowned upon” to ask to see a menu. We got an appetizer of bacon and tomato and onion, which you’re supposed to eat together. It was beyond yummy. Our dinner consisted of one steak for 4. Observe:

I think that everyone could have split this steak. (Matt’s mom got her own mini steak to herself). At the end of the meal Matt and his dad were literally forcing down the final pieces because we are certain it is also “frowned upon” to leave anything behind. We ordered a side of creamed spinach (I tried it, but I don’t love it) and German potatoes (which were excellent). Truth be told… I literally hadn’t eaten all day before this. I had an iced coffee from Dunkin around 11 and a piece of a pumpkin cupcake around 1 and that was it for the entire day. By the time we were ready to go to Brooklyn Matt wouldn’t let me eat anything because it was too close to dinner and I would ruin my appetite, haha. So I had to beg the bartender at Dressler’s to find me some bread which he said had to be “expedited” because it was too early for the dinner crew. And ya know what? He found me bread! I don’t know where it came from but it was damn good. See… nice people! Anyway, back to my point. I hadn’t eaten a thing so I quickly became a little tipsy and it made my whole meal that much better. The wine at Peter Lugar’s was every bit as good as I thought it would be. We had many good laughs with each other and our outstanding waiter, Martin. He’s basically the man.

Overall it was a fantastic night and I highly recommend hitting up Brooklyn sometime soon if you are in the area! Everyone puts so much focus on Manhattan, which I also love, but it’s time to branch out people! If you get the chance to visit Brooklyn or if you have before, let me know some of your favorite spots so we have new places to venture next time we visit! Thanks love you bye.

Happy Friday!

Good morning and Happy Friday, friends! Oh and a very happy first day of Fall as well! Buh-bye summer, I will miss you. Here are a few pictures and words of inspiration to get you through those few hours before the weekend! Enjoy. xo

 

“Never look down on someone unless you are helping them up.”

 

*This last one is my favorite, this pup reminds me of mine, Buddy!

Going Green

I mentioned before that I was falling fast for this whole emerald green trend this fall. Green is, and always has been, one of my absolute favorite colors! There are so many striking shades to be attracted to, and not to mention my eyes are green… so yeah, I’m partial to it. (blue eyes are so over done!)

Emerald green is all over the place this fall from the catwalk to the pages of every magazine and I could not be happier! According to Glamour the color is coming up on dresses in a big way. They even go as far to say it will replace the coveted LBD, gasp! Designers are always looking for a way to break the LBD mold, last season it was the little white dress. I’m all for it. Personally, you can never have too many little dresses of any color, so the more the merrier! If head-to-toe green isn’t exactly an easy look for you to pull off (as it may not be!) you can always try little accents here and there first. Once you’re more comfortable with the color, dive in! Christian Louboutin is all over this trend like white on rice. observe.

And yes, for everyone who is wondering, these two beauties have been on my Wish List ever since the day I laid eyes on them. True Story.

Moving on. US Weekly online did a fantastic recap of celebs rocking the green… we’ll forgive them for their momentary lapse in judgment when they featured Angelina. (yuck) I adore the way Emmy Rossum wore this shade and mixed in other jewel tones with accents on her dress and her shoes. Her classic curls, “look at me” eyes, and popping red lip? So pretty! She must have been feeling extra bold because she even rocked an emerald green clutch! I’m totally swooning over her look. She looks like a modern day Greek goddess. Amanda Seyfried optedfor a dress of the same shade, but a much more relaxed look. The pockets? I love. She not only looks amazing but also comfortable! I know we’re women and we’re supposed to basically kill ourselves to look good, but when you can combine style and comfort? Well, that is really just something to write home about isn’t it? Kudos, Amanda (and stylist), kudos! I also love the little hints of black piping to break up the color without taking away from it.

I must admit, unless I have some fabulous event to go to, I doubt I’ll be wearing this shade from head-to-toe either. How you can introduce it into your wardrobe little by little? Start by playing around with your makeup! Jewel tones look fabulous on your eyes and can add instant drama to an otherwise plane Jane look. Whoever the first designer is to come out with an emerald green blazer, puh-lease let me know! I will be all over that. Thanks!

So how do you feel about this whole trend? What else are you seeing for the Fall that’s peaking your interest? I’m a big fan of this whole cape get-up and all of the lace! The polka dots though… not so much. But it’s still early so we will just have to see! I have been known to change my mind quite frequently.

About The Man Who Loved Fishing; an Interview with Jewelry Designer Kasia Piechocka

I have a huge obsession with jewelry, as we are all well aware of by now. In this day and age, it is extremely hard to find something unique to wear that represents you and your personality and your own style without wearing the same thing as the girl next to you. Women in general are always searching for something different that makes us stand out in a crowd. When I was introduced to Kasia Piechocka and her jewelry collection “About The Man Who Loved Fishing” I thought I died and went to accessories heaven. Ladies and gentlemen, you want something unique? Here it is. Her debut collection was inspired by her late father who, obviously, had a great passion for the sea. Her entire line was created for both men and women to wear and love. Yes, men and women wearing the same pieces. They’re not masculine, they’re not feminine. In my opinion, this is the perfect element to an accessory because you can really dress it up or down depending on your mood and the look you’re going for. These pieces are also so unique you can really model an entire outfit around them alone. Who doesn’t love that? I was lucky enough to interview Kasia about her debut fine jewelry collection so you could be the first to get a glimpse at her new line! Kasia grew up in a small village in West Poland surrounded by forestry and lakes. It didn’t take her long to realize she had a love for art and design, so at the age of 15 she moved to the city to study Fine Art. After college Kasia moved to London where she has been for the past eight years and still lives today. World, meet Kasia Piechocka!  

RR: How did you get into design as a whole? More specifically, designing jewelry?
KP: I was always interested in art as a child; it was something that I had always excelled in at school. My time at Fine Art College was where I really learnt to use my artistic skills in design work. Lessons in sculpting, technical drawing and photography all helped me realize my potential in design. Although my skill set pointed towards becoming a designer, my true passion and dream was to become a painter. Even after graduating from College and moving to London, I was still aiming to be a full time painter.
Four years ago, when I was working in London, I came across the short courses that Central Saint Martins (CSM) offer. I decided to do a short course in jewelry design because my college tutor had briefly recommended that I try it. I didn’t really know what to expect when going into the class, but from the very first session I knew that this was the path for me.

RR: Your debut collection, “About the Man who Loved Fishing” was inspired by your father. Tell us more about that.

The woman behind the line; Kasia Piechocka

KP: My father has and always will be a motivational figure in my life. He was always supportive throughout my studies and I really felt that my final year at CSM (and my graduate collection) was the climax of the education path he had supported me to follow. For this reason, I decided to base my collection around him, more specifically about my memories of him.
My father would regularly take me fishing as a child and I was always fascinated by how much he loved his hobby. My memories of him as a person and his passion for fishing have very much become one, this is the reason why the collection has a strong nautical feel behind it; hence the name, ‘About the Man Who Loved Fishing’.

RR: “About the Man Who Loved Fishing” is primarily a unisex line. How did you decide to go this route as opposed to a men’s line and woman’s line separately? How do you think it will be received by women since you used a male model to represent the collection?
KP: I have obtained some very positive feedback from my university, retailers and customers about my collection. Many people have commented that they like my collection as it is extremely wearable while still maintaining an element of uniqueness and originality. This was my main aim when designing my jewelry. I didn’t really think about  designing jewelry for just women or just men, I wanted design a collection for anybody that wants to add a touch of luxury to their look.
I don’t think that women will or should be put off by the fact that the collection is modeled by males. I didn’t specifically want to have male models for the shoot; I just wanted models that would amplify the themes behind the collection.

RR: What do you look for in the models that will be representing your collections?
KP: When I was organizing the shoot, I was initially considering using professional models. However I struggled to find any that genuinely seemed to portray the bold, masculine image that I wanted my collection to have. It was then that I realized that the best way to find the right faces for the collection was to find real people that represented the theme I had designed around. The two models that I used have never modeled before. One is a software engineer and a keen rock climber, the other is an IT Consultant!

RR: Your line is so unique, unlike anything around, being that you are based out of the UK, do you think there is a difference in the way people there and people here in the US will view and react to your collection?
KP: I have received great comments from people from all sorts of countries and backgrounds. However, I am aware of the fact that, as with any kind of design work, there are always going to be people that are not fans of your work wherever they are from. For this reason, I don’t really differentiate between people from different countries.

RR:  Where are you drawing you inspiration from for your future collections? What can your fans expect to see from you in the future?
KP: I personally found that designing a collection around a real person was a really effective process for me as a designer. I am planning to base my future collections around real people. I am inspired by hearing somebody’s impression of a person they look up to.
I want my fans to get involved in my work, so for my next collection I ask followers of my blog to ‘inspire me with a person that inspires you’. I ask them to email me and tell me about somebody that inspires them. I will eventually choose one of the emails, and design a collection based around that person. Whoever’s nomination I select will have a luxury jewelry collection designed around a person close to them, and will also receive an exclusive piece from the collection.

RR: What piece from this collection, “About the Man Who Loved Fishing,” do you think best represents the collection? If you had to pick one single piece from the collection that you are most proud of or that is your favorite piece, which one would you choose?
KP: That would be like asking a Mother to choose her favorite child…impossible!! A lot of peoples favorites from the collection are the ‘Green eye fish head ring and the Fishbone necklace.’

These are two of my personal favorite pieces from Kasia’s collection.

New Jersey Botanical Gardens

Matt and I finally got a chance to make our way to the New Jersey Botanical Gardens in Ringwood (I think?) last weekend. We were pleased because it was supposed to rain and ended up being an amazing day! Almost too hot actually. Like I said before… I was hot and cranky and my feet were all wet, which was maddening to me! I hate, hate, hate that feeling! After I bitched and moaned for a solid hour I ended up having a good time and got some amazing shots. And we made friends with some wildlife too haha. These are a few of my favorites below. As always, you can visit my Flickr to see more!

Fashion Night Out

So this year I experienced my first ever Fashion Night Out! Oh my goodness, I had no idea just what I was missing out on! We didn’t make it into the city (I made Matt venture out into the world of Fashion with me) but we did make it to Short Hills Mall, Neiman’s specifically. There was music booming through the store, champagne and wine a-plenty, and lots and lots of fabulous goodies.

I made out like a bandit with some amazing YSL makeup I literally die for. I’ve been playing dress up every day since last week, ha. I’m terribly bummed because the eyeshadow palate I really wanted was sold out! It was uh-mazing. I guess I’ll just have to keep an eye out for that. See all my pretty colors? I love.

Along with all of this makeup I got a few more goodies and samples galore! One of my favorites was a sample of Prada’s new perfume, Candy. Don’t judge me, but it actually kind of reminds me of Brittney Spears’ perfume Curious. (which I did own at one time in my life… shhh) It smells so soft and vanilla-y. It makes me want to bake cookies and cupcakes, ha. I think that will definitely be on my Christmas list, it’s the perfect scent for cold weather! Matt loves it as well, which is a bonus, and also very rare that we ever agree on a scent… (bring back the acqua di gio, cough, I’m tired of True Religion, cough cough).

Oh! And my other favorite sample? A lip balm from Jack Black (not the Actor)! I was particularly surprised to see this, and even like it, because I thought Jack Black was all about men’s shaving creams and stuff such as that. But no, they make all kinds of fun things! This particular lip balm comes in a variety of ‘flavors’ but I got natural mint & shea butter. It makes my lips all tingly but I kind of love it. It also has a built in SPF-25 which we all know I just adore. It’s super important to protect your lips and skin with SPF ALL YEAR ROUND! So do it, if you’re not already, or I will find you and hit you. Not really…. but maybe. The only thing I don’t exactly love about it is it can be a little on the sticky side which usually drives me nuts about balms and glosses. It’s not too bad, so I make an exception but it could use a little less stick.


I did 100% of my shopping the makeup section because I am way too dangerous with a Neiman’s credit card and anything else. The last thing I need is another pair of $900 shoes (not really though, I could always use more!) haha. But I did need to give my makeup inventory a makeover so that’s precisely what I did. I also got an amazing YSL eyeliner and makeup remover. Which are prefect together because the eyeliner is freaking waterproof. So that about sums up my first FNO experience. Next year I will be making my way into the city for the night and I think I will have to bring a couple girlfriends with me as well. Not that Matt isn’t a great shopping partner, but he’s no girl.

Where did you guys spend your night on FNO and what kinds of treats did you walk away with?

Coming Soon…

Matt & I finally got to take a trip to the Botanical Gardens! I got a few great pictures (as did Matt, he had the actual camera, I had my phone) so as soon as I have a little time I will, of course, share them with you! I was a very grumpy girl on Saturday (I think that’s when we went?) because I was not dressed appropriately and I was hot and it was wet and muddy and my shoes got ruined, :[ wah. I was not a whole lot of fun to be around… just ask Matt. ha… ha… ha? Anyway. But alas, I tried to make the best of it after about an hour straight of complaining and ended up with some pretty wonderful pictures so stay tuned for that. ALSO ! I will be posting about the absurd fun I had on Fashion Night Out! I didn’t really do anything that exciting, didn’t make it into the city, but I still had fun. Got to sip champagne, listen to way too loud music, and spent way too much money on makeup. But I got lot’s of fun free gifts so it’s ok, right? Right.

Stay tuned for all that ladies and gents! OH! And I also have a super cool interview coming up in the next month or so with a super awesome designer. Not going to give away too much yet but keep an eye out for that! K thanks love you bye.

 

PS – I just wanted to thank everyone for the amazing feedback on my last post looking back on 9/11. I know it is something that affected all of our lives in many ways so thank you for taking the time to see how it affected me. Well wishes to everyone. <3

Remembering September 11th.

Just a fair warning, this post has absolutely nothing to do with fashion, beauty, music, or anything like that. This is a raw and emotional look back at 9/11. If you choose to keep reading knowing it has nothing to do with the rest of my page, please do, I would appreciate it. If not, I totally understand, and I’ll see you soon.

When I was a senior in high school my friend Kevin and I had to do this project for our History class where we had to interview someone who had a significant impact on history. I don’t remember the exact details of the project, but we ended up interviewing his neighbor who had survived World War 2.

His neighbor was a dear sweet old man who was still filled with so many emotions from so long ago it was beyond comprehension for me. As we sat there with a small tape recorder nibbling on ginger snaps and sipping on lemonade, of course, this man was brought to tears as he told us the story of how he watched all, yes all, of his best friends die right in front of him. Sitting there listening to the passion in his voice and seeing the hurt on his face it was almost impossible not to lose it myself but by some small miracle I managed to keep it together long enough to make it through the interview without balling. I understood how upset he was, but I couldn’t understand how he still got so emotional about the experience. Not that it wasn’t completely traumatizing and life-altering, but it had happened so long ago. It made me sad to see him sad like that.

As we sit here today, exactly ten years from the date our lives changed forever, I start to understand his emotion. Living on the east coast, New Jersey, being so close to the city, being physically able to see the smoke from the Twin Towers from your house, I can understand his emotion. Even ten years later it is impossible not to get emotional watching all of the coverage from that day or hearing the stories of the survivors on that day. I bet everyone who was old enough will, for the rest of their lives, be able to tell you exactly where they were and what they were doing on September 11th, 2001.

As we all know from my very first post on this website, my mother owns a local newspaper. When I was in 8th grade (2001) I decided to write an article for my mom’s paper on how I felt on that day. In my opinion, my school handled 9/11 horribly. At the time, the column was just to convey my feelings about the school and the situation, but it ended up almost being a diary entry for me. My mom re-ran the story a couple years later in her paper on another anniversary of 9/11. We thought maybe you guys would like to read it today, 10 years later. Keep in mind… I was 12 years old when this was written and published. So here we go…

           It was September 11th and I was in 2nd period (Language for me). Our secretary came in and handed my teacher a note and asked her if she knew what it meant. The look on my teacher’s face was really unexplainable. No one really knew what was going on.

            My teacher and the secretary walked outside in the hallway, and the kids that sat close to the door said it looked like my teacher was crying. When she walked back into the room her eyes were red and watery and she didn’t look happy. That’s when we all knew something was wrong, though the thoughts that we had in our heads were very far from the truth.

            When the bell rang I went to Social Studies. We had a substitute and some of the kids that were in my language class started to spread rumors. Some, like maybe our Social Studies teacher had died and that’s why our other teacher was crying (Of course that wasn’t true). So all through the class the kids were asking a lot of questions. But, for some odd reason, no one would answer them.

            Later that period I asked to be excused from the class to go to the bathroom. When I walked by the cafeteria all of the teachers that didn’t have classes that period were in there watching the news. The doors were closed and there were pieces of paper covering the windows so the kids couldn’t see. But I managed to get a look at what they were watching. It looked like smoke and flames.

            When I went back to class all the kids asked me what I saw so I told them. And the rumors started to spread even faster. This time someone said that our teacher had died in a wild fire. That wasn’t true either… obviously.

            So in my next class the questions flew wildly around that class too. But my teacher still wouldn’t answer them and she snapped at us, “If you ask any more questions you’re spending the rest of the day in the office with detention.” That made all of us shut up. This continued on until lunch when it got really bad. This girl from the 7th grade had walked over to our table to talk to one of my friends. She said that some of our planes had been high-jacked and crashed into the Twin Towers. But some of the less mature boys in our grade boasted that this wasn’t true, they all said that the George Washington Bridge had collapsed. And, now you know for yourself why they are less mature.

            My next class was Art. Our teacher is pretty cool so everyone thought that she would tell us what was REALLY going on. She had a serious expression on her face and she told us that it would be better if we found out with our families. That scared just about everyone I knew in that class. Throughout the day I noticed that a lot of kids were being picked up early from school, but I didn’t know why.

            So finally, after the long frustrating day of school, we got to go home. When I walked in everyone was sitting on the couch watching the TV. They didn’t look happy. That’s when they explained to me what was happening. And my brother told me that my Uncle Mark had been in the first one that had been hit. Before he could explain to me that my Uncle was okay, I ran upstairs and closed the door. I sat in front of my TV with my remote and my phone.

            I was so upset about everything that I didn’t want to be around my family, I know it’s odd but that’s how I am. Suddenly I felt tears streaming down my cheek. I was so overcome with emotions that I couldn’t help but cry. I walked downstairs because I wanted to be comforted by my family. They finally got the chance to explain to me that my Uncle Mark was okay. I was so happy and relieved that this time tears of joy streamed down my face. I also learned that my other uncle, Uncle Mike, and my grandfather were also in the area. But they were fine. Even though they couldn’t get home until the next day. My uncle Mark got a ferry home.

            This whole experience was very scary for me. I am so relieved that all of my family is okay, but at the same time I am sad for everyone else who is missing a loved one or a friend. All of my life I thought that our government was strong and would never let anything like this happen. In class when we read about something that happened many years ago like Pearl Harbor, kids ask if anything like that would happen today. And the teachers always tell us that it’s impossible because our government is too strong. But they were all wrong. And that’s the scary part, something like that did happen. I even heard that it was worse than Pearl Harbor.

            I wish our school would have told us what happened. My brother, who is only two years older than me, got to watch the news in school. I don’t understand what my school was thinking. I guess it was because there could have been some kids in school whose parents worked at the World Trade Center and they didn’t know yet.

            Not knowing was much, much worse.

This is the first time I’ve also read this story since then, in ten years. It brings back so much for me but there is also so much I left out. After my family sat me down when I got home and explained to me that the rest of my family was safe I wanted to be alone again, but not completely. I called my best friend Gabby. We had this routine that we followed every single day after school. We would take a walk from her house, through the community center, to Black Berry Bay (a park on the water in Oceanport). I met her at her house and we walked in silence the whole way and didn’t talk til we finally sat down on the wall separating the field from the bay. We sadly watched as more and more black smoke filled the sky over our own heads. We talked about everything and nothing because the way I remember it now, I don’t think anything we said made much sense. How could it? Ten years down the road it still doesn’t make much sense to me. When I think about everyone who was directly affected that day, whether they lost someone close to them, or were physically too close to the situation, my heart breaks for them. I had a friend whose mom made eye contact with the pilot as he flew the plane sideways past her building. Her life will never be the same, that is an image she will never be able to forget. It saddens me to think that someday this is going to be a world where all of the generations who were alive when 9/11 happened will be gone and the only thing to remember it by will be documentaries and text books. However, it also makes me happy to think that someday there will be a world that is not inhabited by people with so much heartache, confusion, and anger. There will be children who only grow up with passed down stories instead of their own memories.

I don’t know how much else there is left to say and I’m sorry for changing the entire vibe of my blog right now, but being that I was so close to the situation and it is the 10 year anniversary of something that changed my life forever, I hope you’ll make this exception for me. I hope that you will also share with me where you were when this tragedy took place and how you feel today.

This is a copy of the article when it was re-ran in 2003. 

Greene with envy.

So I was browsing Donna Karan’s site and she has pictures of all the celebrities who have rocked her brand throughout the year and Ashley Greene (from Twilight, duh!) was pictured several times. Every picture she looks better and better, this girl is gorgeous and she looks beyond stunning in Donna Karan! It’s like Donna designed a clothing line just for Ashley. Initially I was looking for different jewel toned dresses for an upcoming trend post but I was floored by Ashley Greene in all of these dresses. I think that for my next big night out or wedding or whatever event I can get dressed up at without looking like a dumbass I am going to emulate her style. She always looks so classy! She’s my style icon for September. Enjoy.

The girl even looks like a class act wandering down the streets of LA sippin on an ice coffee. I hate her.

More Fall Favorites!

So I can’t believe I forgot to mention these two things yesterday as I don’t think I could survive the month without them!

1. Say Yes to Cucumber facial towelettes: These are fantastic! I am the worst at washing my face at night before I go to bed, like seriously the worst, I never ever do it. These make me feel a little less guilty about it. With the winter months approaching it is very important to keep your skin hydrated and these really get the job done. You can find them at pretty much any drug store so grab a pack for yourself. They smell just divine as well!

2. Sally Hansen Vita-E sticks: When I was growing up my mother’s cure-all was vitamin E. Much like the dad in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Any time I complained about anything her response was “want some vitamin E?” After I grew up and moved out I stopped using it all together. A few weeks ago I was wandering through the aisles of CVS and stumbled upon this new and improved form of vitamin-e; a chapstick! It’s perfect for me considering I have a slight crack-like addiction to chapstick. I bought two; one to keep in my apartment and one to keep in my bag at all times. It keeps my lips soft and healthy and you can use it on dry skin as well. Sounds gross, but it works!

These are just a couple more things I cannot live without this month. I’m sure as more pop in my memory I’ll be posting them for you guys. Anywho! Fashion Night Out tonight baby! Where are you guys celebrating this fabulous event? I’ll be at Neiman Marcus in Short Hills! woo!
