Red Farm Upper West Side . . .

Last night a group of us had dinner at Red Farm on the UWS. It was my first time, and I'm officially hooked. I loved everything about it. The food, of course, was delicious. The drinks were to die. The atmosphere was buzzing. And the decor was the perfect balance of hipster/farmhouse.

Even though I live in the area, I'm ashamed to say that I don't take enough advantage of the dining on the Upper West. Well, Red Farm has definitely been added to my list of go-tos. A few callouts for your next visit: smoked salmon bruschetta, marinated prime rib steak, lobster noodles, and the Hot 'n Sour cocktail. Honestly though, we tried so many dishes and drooled over every bite - so I really think you can't go wrong here. Try it out, let me know what you think!

PS. They also have a location on the Lower East Side, for you downtowners.


Fall Fashion with Raise . . .

Last night was the first in a while that I woke up chilly, having to reach for a pair of socks mid-sleep. I think fall is slowly making its way to us, and I couldn't be more excited to start whipping out my suede boots and oversized coats.

Faces of New York Fashion Week . . .

NYFW started yesterday. I'll be popping in and out of Lincoln Center for a few events, so if I get any great pics I'll be sure to post! In the meantime thought I'd share a cute cartoon from NYMag:

I laughed. Don't forget to swing by Lincoln Center this weekend if you want to catch a sight of these cool characters in person. 

Happy weekend, enjoy!


Labor Day Photo Diary . . .

How was everyone's long weekend? I wanted to share a few quick pics of mine with you yesterday, but I dropped my phone in the ocean Monday evening. Woops! Anyway, yesterday my phone was living in a bag of rice, but thankfully after 24 hours it has come back to life.
Hope you're all having a happy Wednesday! 

Thanks for stopping by,
