eataly + nyc food inspiration

The opening of Eataly in New York City a few weeks ago has spread like wildfire over the internet. It will be top on my to-do list next time I visit the city, but until then, I will keep staring at pictures and finding inspiration in other restaurants and grocery/specialty stores.

Dean and Deluca. On my must-visit list every trip to NYC. The Soho store is my favorite.

On my last trip to New York, my friend (and consummate hostess) Lisa introduced me to Five Napkin Burger. Their burger was amazing, but I loved the decor (bar especially) even more. These pictures don't do it justice...

Football season!

I love fall, and one of the reasons is definitely football. No, I'm not a big sports fan (but I watch enough of it...). Instead, football has given be a great excuse to throw a good party. Hosting a game day yourself? Take a look at some of the ideas below for inspiration....

Rachel Ray's
sports night party. Check out the perfect game-watching recipes, including her beer margarita. YUM!

Hostess with the Mostess' the big game party. Wings, pigs in a blanket, and meatball sandwiches are on the menu. The decor ideas are the best!

Or, check out these ideas from InStyle Parties.

Bullseye Bazaar

Yesterday during lunch my friend B and I stopped by Target's popup shop, Bullseye Bazaar at the Trib tower. I have to say, I had high expectations for the popup, having heard so much about them in NYC, and was not disappointed. They had a selection of home goods, beauty products, clothing, accessories and kids gear. While I didn't buy anything, I drooled over their selection of armless chairs--ADORABLE!!

J.Crew lovin'

I have a sick obsession with J.Crew recently. Their clothes and accessories are so bright and cheerful, and make me happy just to flip through their catalog.

Now if only it was more affordable...I guess I'll have to wait until they're on sale. And I get a 20% off email ;)

Recent obsessions

I wish I had a desk. Not because I enjoy sitting at my desk at work--I really can't stand all the sitting. But it would be nice to have a creative place of sorts. I'm particularly loving...

parsons desk, west elm

surf office chair, CB2

Too bad there isn't enough space for all my furniture. Maybe the next apt....
