On March 8, I attended the first of three “Women in the World Summit 2012″ sessions at Lincoln Center.  What an evening!  I got there early, yet the line went on for blocks.  I even saw few celebrities like Debra Messing who also attended the conference.   Read the complete post »

Fashion Week FTW

If you haven’t stopped by Lincoln Center for a glimpse of models, celebrities, and glamour, head down to 66th Street today before Mercedes Benz Fashion Week ends! You didn’t need a ticket to the runway to spot famous famous and admire gorgeous get-up.  Stop by the Allure lounge on West 63rd St for a photo shoot, free goodies, and more!  Grab a drink at the Empire Hotel (feel free to introduce yourself as Chuck Bass at the bar and see what happens)… for a sure shot at seeing fashionistas.

For a bite to eat, check out the 23 restaurants in near Lincoln Center offering fashion plate specials- delicious prix-fixe meals at affordable prices.

This afternoon,  Jessica Szohr stopped by The Eddie’s Pizza Truck for Urban Decay with a few girlfriends to grab a few pizzas in between the shows.  Jessica ordered “The Naked” pie for herself, named after the brand’s cult-favorite “Naked” palette. Following @UrbanDecay411 for exclusive pizza (and cosmetics!) giveaways.

Beyonce and baby-bump were also spotted yesterday at the Mercedes Benz Star lounge along with famous faces like Emma Watson and Mandy Moore. Show off your style and admire others– who knows who you’ll see! Seriously, if your fashion week viewing hasn’t begun, head to the West Side before it’s too late!

5 Reasons to Love Lincoln

Lincoln Center

http://www.flickr.com/photos/wallyg/ / CC BY-NC-ND 2.0

A five dollar bill doesn’t go far in New York City, but recent additions to the Lincoln Center area have made the West 60’s a little more attractive to penny-pinchers. Not only is this afternoon excursion easy on the wallet, but rest assured that all 5 senses will be satisfied as well.

Touch: Just when you thought 5 was the lucky number, this first stop may suggest otherwise: i-junkies can forget the cross-town trek to the 5th Ave Apple Store and head to the new 67th street location, just unveiled this past weekend. The new building carries on the family tradition of its ‘glassy’ Eastside sister, and is unwrapped just in time to offer a slew of i-gadgets for the Christmas season. With a 45-foot Genius Bar and free daily workshops ranging from audio production, Final Cut Pro and dozens of other tutorials for your favorite i-apps, there’s plenty to keep your hands busy.

1981 Broadway @ 67th St
