Brides & Blowouts

Dinner at nine o’clock is better than no dinner at all! Today I experienced one of Kleinfeld’s Blowout Sales, where brides line up to get numbers and we open up the store to sell sample dresses at a crazy discount. Based on Kleinfeld’s twitter, the first bride was in line by 6:45 this morning, and the sale […]

Windy Monday Sun~

I’m sitting in one of my favorite spots (my back porch) and wondering how much longer I’ll last here until this crazy wind blows me away. Two umbrellas have already taken the fall, along with one patio chair, and my dogs Frisbee came flying back and almost hit me in the face. It’s a bit much, […]

Apple Cider Short and Sweet

Red Jacket Orchards Apple Cider. Have it and you will never want to drink anything else, ever. Holy cow… Now all I need are sweet potato pancakes and Dad’s peanut butter cinnamon mix. It’s really feeling like fall! This morning, I made a rare, quick decision on my tea for the day, and went for […]

Bronx Lessons

Today, I’m going to share a few Bronx-based lessons: 1. Whether you need to shower, didn’t do your makeup, or are wearing the same shirt you slept in, someone will always call you “sexy mami.” So don’t worry about your appearance. No need.2. If you aren’t watching out for poop, you will step in it. […]

Free Tea & Life Stories

Today ended up being a really great day at work. I was exhausted, needless to say, but I managed to wake up early enough to stop at David’s Tea. Because there are too many flavors there and I’m awful at making decisions, I always ask the workers to help me decide. During our decision making […]

Stonehill at Kleinfeld

Holy cow…. What a day! Saturday and Sunday mornings are early mornings at the store, so I woke up early and began my trek into work. I was so looking forward to getting tea from David’s Tea, (which is like a Teavana, but better) but they don’t open until 10 on weekends so that was no […]

Pastries and Pep Talks

Happy Friday! Friday’s are one of my favorite days at the store, because it’s shorter, and there are only four appointments as opposed to the usual five. During the fifth appointment, everyone’s usually extremely exhausted and burnt out, so Friday’s are a bit of a break. Anyway, before we opened, there was a “20 year […]

Model Morning

This morning, I woke up extra early to get ready for the day and be to work by 9:45. Our Directors were holding a project knowledge meeting for the Consultants, where they have some of us model the new gowns. I was placed in an Angel Sanchez A-line gown priced at $8,300. It was fun […]

A Rather Boring Post…

Today was the perfect day off! I slept in, and after working out and making breakfast, it was around 12 o’clock. Whoops. I enjoyed the most delicious, self-made breakfast burrito for lunch and chatted with Camelia for a while. She was telling me about her family (she is one of 11) and mentioned her Grandmother, […]
