So for September, I…

  • went to NYC for NYFW, which you can read more about it here, here and here.
  • was invited to a Sofitel event in DC where Picasso’s grandson curated 30 photos to be displayed at the hotel for the Revealed event. They had a great display of awesome small bites as well as delicious macarons with very interesting flavors.
  • got to petsit Linda’s little boo, Mandu. It was a very relaxing Friday night home with the boy.
  • had a craving for my childhood fave food, bánh xèo, which is translated into sizzling pancake, so wanted to try my hand in making them. Third time came out just right.
  • tried out this Austin-based Tex Mex chain called Chuy’s that opened up two weeks ago in Fairfax. It’s such a vibrant restaurant and you can grab your free nachos plus dipping sauces from under a car’s hood. I have a feeling that I’m going to be a regular there.
  • finally bit the bullet and got these Valentino Rockstud pumps that have been on my lust list for awhile. For one, it’s hard for me to splurge on a pair of pumps if they are not comfortable for me to get enough wear and two, usually hard to find them in my size. Leave it to Nordstrom to carry them and now I can check these off my list.

And that wraps up my September. October, I’m ready for you! Just no scary movie, please.
