2 My Father’s Daughter (Gwyneth’s Cookbook!)

 

Katie tried out a few recipes from Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook, My Father’s Daughter, and couldn’t believe how easy but fresh and delicious they were. She recommends the duck ragu and almond cookies…to die for! (Not to mention the gorgeous pictures of Gwyneth and her family!)

 

 

3 College Football Saturdays

 

Blaire went to support her alma mater, LSU, in their game against Arkansas while home in Baton Rouge. LSU won (12-0) and is now off to the SEC Championship. She got her fix for all the best Louisiana has to offer, most importantly family, friends, and Cajun food!

 

 


4Minted

As much as we love all things digital, nothing beats a beautiful card sent by way of snail mail. We love Minted.com, one of our fav fellow startups, where you can personalize beautiful stationary and holiday cards. They collaborate with some of the best independent graphic designers to deliver impeccable quality and products. Brooke used them for her holiday cards this season and they turned out fantastic!

 

 

 

 

5 Brooklyn Brewery

 

Katy loves the Brooklyn Brewery in Williamsburg, where you can taste all of their beers and get a tour of the factory. They also have happy hour and events all throughout the week – great having a local brewery!

 

6 Muppet Movie

 

Many of us grew up watching The Muppets and even the fashion industry has been looking forward to the franchise refresh. We can’t wait to catch Kermit and Miss Piggy on the big screen again!

 

 

7 Ed’s Lobster Bar

 

Those of us who reside downtown are thrilled that Ed’s Lobster Bar has opened an annex in the Lower East Side. Located on Clinton, the most recent franchise boasts signature specials like lobster meatballs and mini lobster pizzas. Yum!

 

 

8Stamped

 

We love Stamped, a new iPhone app launched by a stellar team from Google where you ‘stamp’ your favorite restaurants, books, movies and more and your friends can follow your taste. Since most of us are the designated fashion gurus in our groups of friends and constantly being consulted, this is a perfect sharing platform. What better way to get and give recommendations than from the people you trust!


        

 

9 Water Taxi

 

We love that you can now buy water taxi tickets that include a visit to the 9/11 Memorial. The ride consists of a scenic trip complete with tour guide from West 44th Street all the way to Dumbo in Brooklyn, making stops at the 9/11 Memorial and South Street Seaport. This is a great way for visitors to see the city and an important landmark.
