California Homeby Elizabeth Jaime posted at January 22nd, 2011
Nicholas and I try to escape to California as often as we can. When we do, we stay at his parents house which is actually a condo and is decorated so beautifully. Nicholas has told me of the hours spent in the back seat of the car while his mom and dad scavenged antique stores here in America and in Europe as well. I think Nicholas would agree with me that those hours spent in the back of a car were well spent, as now they have a beautifully decorated home.

I didn’t think I would ever say it. Well, I miss summer. A lot!
Nicholas’ Birthdayby Elizabeth Jaime posted at January 20th, 2011
Last Saturday was Nicholas’ birthday and we celebrated by having dinner and drinks with a bunch of friends at Black Market in the East Village. If you haven’t gone to Black Market, and love cheeseburgers, I definitely recommend going and trying their burgey –it’s DELISCIOUS! Really –the best one I’ve had in New York City (so far! And yes, I’ve tried quite a few. Black Market uses Pat LaFrieda beef, yum!)

Mid-bite in to my eggs con chorizo, courtesy of Barrio Chino, I had a brilliant idea –Nicholas and I would convince Matt to take us to his cottage off the Husdon River for the holiday weekend. Of course, Matt agreed and a few hours later, Nicholas, Bjorn, Christie, Matt, and I, found ourselves cramped into a Mazda 3 (thanks ZipCar!) on our way upstate. We got there late, cooked up dinner, and called it a night.

Is anyone else loving Givenchy and Derek Lam’s Pre-Fall collection as much as I am?

Snow Stormby Elizabeth Jaime posted at January 11th, 2011
We’re suppose to get a lot of snow tonight, and to be honest, I’m overly excited about it. This is my first winter in New York and it hasn’t really snowed since I’ve been here (I was in California during the Christmas blizzard!) I’m hoping for a snow day (does that happen often? I remember in Miami we had soo many hurricane days!) tomorrow so I can go around and take some pictures. Until then, I leave you with some pictures from Hither and Thither, a cute blog created by a married couple. They documented the aftermath of the Christmas blizzard a few weeks ago and the results are amazing.
String Gardensby Elizabeth Jaime posted at January 11th, 2011
Lately, I’ve been fantasizing about growing my own fruits and veggies/having my own garden. Living in New York City makes that a little hard for me, wouldn’t you agree? I came across these string plants on Cup of Jo and thought it was a cute idea. Sure, it doesn’t solve my problem as I think string plants would only last a short time –but aren’t they super cool?
Also, for all of you bloggers who use WordPress: what do you use to take care of spam comments? I’m tired of male enhancement comments!!

Snowby Elizabeth Jaime posted at January 8th, 2011
Today was my first New York City snowfall! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to run around in it (or build a snowman), however, it was still beautiful to look at through an office window. Something strange happened once I got home though –I was craving summer. Weird, because I love the winter. Which do you prefer?
PS – This picture was taken exactly one year ago in Montreal!

I’ve really fallen in love with Teri Lyn Fisher’s collection of poloroids on Shoot it Before it’s Dead.
A Change Of Plans…by Elizabeth Jaime posted at January 3rd, 2011
So, as I mentioned in my previous post, Nicholas & I were going to ring in the new year while camping at Joshua Tree. After a long drive (and getting lost), we finally made it into the park at right after it turned dark. IT WAS FREEZING! I’ve honestly never been so cold in my life and I really wasn’t prepared. I tried my hardest to make it through at least one night but I couldn’t. My toes were frozen, everything was frozen. So we left. I was really sad because I wanted to spend some good times with my friends but I guess I’ll have to make it up to friends with some sort of party.
The day before we left to Joshua Tree, we all stayed at Bjorn’s parents house in Redlands. They live in a great house with chickens and lots of citrus trees.
