Lies About Spring

Supposedly it’s springtime in NYC, but it was snowing when I got off the subway this evening, so I’m not buying what the calendar is selling. That said, when I left my apartment this morning it was comfortably brisk without a cloud in the sky. I wouldn’t mind except for the fact that I’ve packed up 90% of my winter wardrobe so am now just cold until the temperature cooperates.

On a lighter note, I’ve discovered some more happy, spring-friendly things:

1. Machete Wine. Apparently, it’s #33 on Wine Spectator’s list of the top 100 wines in the world, but it’s hella expensive and really only worth it for a special occasion. It’s also f*cking delicious.
2. Nars lip pencil in Cruella. Now might be a good time to mention that I was weirdly obsessed with Cruella DeVille as a child — it took me years to pick up on the fact that she was skinning puppies — but this color is absolutely flawless and I can’t recommend it enough. Also Kat Von D’s everlasting liquid lipstick, which really lives up to its name.
3. This. Just trust me and click on it. It fuels my workout AND my work day.
4. Lastly, a bargain to keep you warm. I just scooped up these gorgeous pumps from Nine West (they’re out of stock now, but should reappear) and then saw an almost-identical pair on Rupert Sanderson’s Instagram only a few days later. Can’t even imagine how much the latter costs.

Apologies for the brevity after such an extended absence, but will be back shortly with updates. In the meantime, I’ll be cleaning up from dinner and planning a trip to Puerto Rico, so would love to hear your recommendations on restaurants, day trips, etc.

Until next time…
