YOLO - Recaps and Resolutions

A photo collage of 2012 from left to right in no particular order: Met Simon Doonan; hosted a summer potluck; Saw the My Little Pony Project; Went to AnimeBoston as press; Got Married; Started up an Etsy shop; Met some Bay Area Lolitas and Twinkie Chan; Celebrated the end of 2012 with a new career goal.
 Resolutions are really not meant to be kept, but act as guidelines to strive for. And always at the end of the year you should always give yourself an "A for effort."  Even if you do not fulfill all of them.

However you should have accomplished at least one.

The only real resolution I would like to keep is to live life for the experience and get a good story out of it.  Because this was really a raison d'etre I have followed for most of my adult life.

It was the reason I chose the college I went to.
It was the reason I moved to New York City.
It was reason I got into Lolita fashion.
It was one of the reasons I created this blog.

You have probably noticed the voice of this blog has changed a bit the few times I've written.  In the future things won't be too different - at least I hope not.  There will be less events posts and more event coverage posts. I hope there will be more quality posts. Perhaps more "what I think about the fashion" posts. 

And of course, lots of food posts.

Do you have any realistic resolutions 2013?

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
