My Week in Vegas

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

Last week, I celebrated my 25th birthday in Las Vegas with my mom. The day of my birthday was also the first day of lectures at the 2013 International Baking industry Exposition (IBIE). I used the week to take a much needed break from New York, to celebrate my 25th year on this earth, and to learn a little more to help grow my business.

Above is my week of food (some real and some fake) in pictures. The IBIE took over the north side of the Las Vegas Convention Center and filled it with some of the largest cooking, baking, and packing machinery as well as the sweetest pies I’ve ever tasted. I was in a bakers paradise.

Lovely isn’t it? To see more from my trip (including video from The Gun Store), look below…

I haven’t done one of these posts in over a year so you know it had to be a good one. Timeless Truth just released this video from their upcoming album “Rock’it Science” feat. Action Bronson.

Timeless Truth will always get love around these parts.

5411’s, Back Again

Sunday, February 19th, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Remember the #throwbackthursday photo I posted on Instagram with my mom and the necklace I made for her in pre-school (which she still has)? She’s been keeping that necklace in a Reebok Freestyle a.k.a. “5411” box since the early 90s. I remember my mom wearing 5411’s when I was young and wanting a pair so bad. I finally talked her into buying me a pair in 2007 (late, I know) when Reebok celebrated the Freestyle’s 25th Anniversary. I scratched them about 4 wears later at a ’92 party and haven’t worn them since.

Thanks to Erika P. of Reed Space, I got a new pair!!


I posted the pic above on Instagram with the comment “5411, size 7 in girls…” so it’s only right that I post this vid, too.

My Nate Berkus Segment

Friday, September 16th, 2011 at 8:58 am

I was excited and anxious all day long waiting for my segment on The Nate Berkus Show to air and when it did, I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. In case you missed it, I recorded the segment with my camera and uploaded it to YouTube. Check me out at the 4:50 mark. Sorry for the sucky sound quality. I tried.

Thanks again to Cara for making this possible! Fellow blogger and “thrift shopping guru” Patrice Williams was on the show talking about how to snatch great fashion pieces at remarkebly low prices. She did so great and got so many hits to her site following the shows airing that her site crashed! That is one happy problem for any blogger. Check her out at

I was talking about my prior TV experiences earlier on Twitter and Dwight dug up this old clip of he, Raeana, and I at the TRL Awards 6 years ago. Check it out below…

Summer Time is Pepsi Time: Uncle Teddy

I can’t tell if it’s the marketing student, the Pepsi drinker, or the “This is How We Do It” song lover that makes me really like this commercial but I do.
