Every couple of years I get really into something athletic. For a while it was Crossfit, before that it was horseback riding. Other hobbies have included ballet and tap. But for about three years I was really into running races and Tough Mudder was the one that I had dreaded the most.

Visiting Buenos Aires – Don’t Cry For Me Argentina!

I only knew of a few things when I had plotted visiting Buenos Aires; Evita, good steak, and the Argentine tango. What I ended up getting out of the trip was so much more.

Santacon NYC – From the East Village to Midtown, drunk Santas descend on the city one Saturday in December. Everyone who participates gets in their full Santa suite gear and drinks from 11am – 8pm.

The Annual Scandinavian Society Christmas Ball | NYC

It’s a crazy statement to say in the 21st century that I’ve been to enough balls to have a favorite ball among all the NYC balls. The Scandinavian Christmas Ball is held every year to mark the beginning of the Christmas season and is absolutely in my top three list of must-do balls. It’s festive, it’s fun, and it’s in a beautiful 19th century mansion, the Metropolitan Club.

Whenever October rolls around my boyfriend braces himself. Ever since our first year of dating when I made him take me White Post Farms pumpkin picking, he expects an onslaught of pumpkin picking, apple picking, hay rides, and other fun fall activities.  Sorry boo, I love the fall.
