Improv Everywhere: Making people smile one crazy antic at a time

In my journey's across this vast internet land, I've discovered a very beautiful and pleasant place (blog) by a super inspiring and cheerful lady, Katie (see Color Me Katie and her fabulously inspiring blog). 

She is part of a group in New York City called Improv Everywhere. This is basically a dedicated group of people who put on lively pranks for the smiles  and laughter of New Yorkers and tourists in random spots around the city. 
Check out some of their Improv Everywhere youtube videos below to see what I'm talking about:







At any rate, I was really excited to hear that because of the rapid success of Improv Everywhere (thanks to a little thing called Youtube) they've reached their kickstarter goals and they've been given the green light to make a full length documentary about these fun pranks and their origins.

Check out the trailer for the feature length documentary here!!

Style Watch: Colorful Stripes

Ahh, the days are longer and warmer, and the sweet smell of flowers and barbecuing fills my neighborhood. 
It must be springtime!
 In lieu of the changing of the season and the brightening up of clothes in stores I thought I'd point out my favorite trend right now: 

Colorful Stripes.  

Starting off with my favorite fictional fashionista: Carrie Bradshaw
Carrie Bradshaw ( per usual) standing the test of time with her colorful rainbow skirt.

Below are some other ideas to dress up bright colorful stripes for a night on the town  or  down for a
day at the beach.

Carrie Bradshaw's Apartment: FOR SALE!

It's no secret I'm a huge Sex and the City and Carrie Bradshaw fan. Her style and charm have stood the test of time in my heart and the heart of the public. If you're a fan of the show then you're well aware of how iconic her apartment and her apartment's stoop is in the pop culture realm.


Well, bestill my fangirl heart her apartment is now up for sale!

64 perry street in the West Village ( in the show it was supposed to be located in the Upper East Side) is now up for sale for a measly 9.6 million. Guys- NINE POINT SIX MILLION DOLLARS.

ouch.

Apparently, the real apartment is not just a one bedroom walk-in with a charming walk through closet but a private home with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 6 (yes.. SIX) fireplaces with no mention on the realtors site about closet space (carrie bradshaw would be appalled..)

Still, for me it's not about what's on the inside of Carrie's apartment, but I'll always be fond of her stoop...

where she had her lovers...

and she had her friends...


and I had my New York moment...

My New Favorite Flats: Cocorose London


Thanks to one of our lovely readers Janan Leo, founder of Cocorose London, a FABULOUS shop who sells these super stylish fold-able flats I have found my new favorite pair. Since these little darlings fold-up and come with their own little bag (see 4th picture), I thought I'd love to have these for post-dancing when my feet are yelling at me from wearing heels all night. However, once they arrived I knew I couldn't wait for that post-partying moment and decided to wear them to work. Let me tell you, I not only got a lot of compliments on them this past week but I feel like I'm walking on air! Below are a picture of my fold-able flats. 

The one's I ordered are "Glamour Glitz Dusk Gem" 



I am definitely ready to already expand my Cocorose London Fold-able Flat's collection and I'm thinking of these bad boys next...
They're called "Parisian Panache" and I think that is just about perfect.
