Instamix: Accessories, Friday Night Filming & NYC

Happy Monday all! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I have a lot to do today, so will get right into my weekend updates.

Friday, I met with my accountant about 40 minutes from me north of Maryland and stopped by Arundel Mills to return a few things. I forgot that there was a BCBG store there, so stopped in. I ordered a skirt that is coming today and saw these two jewelry pieces that I had to get.

You may not know this, but for some reason, I love panthers. Could be because it was my alma mater’s mascot, but even before I went to college there, I always wanted to have a pet panther when growing up. Not sure if it was something about the sleek, black coat or the glowing eyes of a panther that drew me in, but yes, as soon as I saw the panther ring, I wanted it. I got the only size there, which was a size too big, but will still try to make it work – lol.

Also this bow cuff was just too cute for words. It was the right size, very petite-friendly for my wrist and of course a sucker for bows, so that was a no-brainer.

Afterwards, I was starving and was leaning towards something healthier or something bad on my way home. The something bad got to me first and stopped by my favorite place for some duck fat fries. You haven’t had good fries until you had duck fat poutine – yum-o.

As soon as I got home, I prepped for a second tutorial and was racing against daylight. Took a photo of how my hair looked after taking out the updo before heading to the gym – very glam night – I know.

This tutorial was filmed in conjunction with another I did earlier in the week and I think I may just save it for next Halloween, but I haven’t decided yet. Talk about planning ahead, right? =P

Then it was NJ/NYC the next day and of course I had to stop by Ladurée to pick up my fave dessert, macarons – mmm mmm. I actually tried a macaron place here in DC called Sweet Lobby about a month ago and although the seasonal stuff was ok, their staple ones like the rose flavor was absolutely delish. Also tried Paul, but I prefer Sweet Lobby.

I had a shoot in the city but before then, ordered this crab salad on top of a bed of cucumbers and avocado for lunch. I didn’t think I would like it since I thought it would have a ton of mayo in it, but surprisingly, it was light, very fresh and delish.

Alright, going to be a busy day today: gym, photo shoot, prep engagement post for photoblog. Not to mention that I still have yet to pack for my SF trip tomorrow through Sunday! Right now as I am typing this post, I am wondering if I could squeeze in gym time tomorrow morning, before I head to airport – LOL! I never thought the day would come where I’d feel sluggish after missing a day of gym, but I am glad though. Now, if only I can get myself to eat healthier. =P Anyways, have a fast Monday everyone and thanks always for reading! =)
