What's Coming Out Of My Suitcase

I have only been in New York for a few days and I love it so far! The weather is much warmer than the midwest, which I was not anticipating. Here are a few things that I would enjoy popping out of my suitcase right now.

  1. Miu Miu Dog Motif Cropped Jacket (I’m dreaming of spring!)
  2. Tazo Chai Tea Latte
  3. Daily planner
  4. Lola by Marc Jacobs Eau De Parfum
  5. Muk Luks Women’s Boho Slipper Boot –

My top foolishly underrated things of 2012

make up primer

When I first heard of this I thought it was yet another beauty scam, but after trying it out myself, I realized the benefits of this product. Since I have oily skin, it does in fact keep my make-up in place even into the wee hours of the night.

This past year I traveled a lot to New York City or Minneapolis. What I clearly forgot during some of these trips was how cold the airport can be, and how much I would love to take a nap while I sit on this thing. Being prepared to sleep anywhere, keep warm and look cool while on your journey? perfect! (Hepburn had the right idea)

cosmopolis_newsElisecosmopolis-stillThis David Cronenberg film was definitely not what I was expecting. Not only was the film interesting with its characters and their actions, but it made the audience think about this futuristic world. I was impressed with how Cronenberg portrayed the novel by Don Delillo, as well as Robert Pattinson’s performance.

peking duckYes I am a vegetarian but this peking duck found in Flushings, NY was so tasty. It was quite the adventure to find it, since it is only a window you walk up to and pay $1 for a little bit of heaven. (So sorry little ducks but you are just so tasty…)
