10 Things We Love 1.9.12

1Daniella Susan Fleiss


Congratulations to Jenny and Andrew who welcomed a beautiful, healthy baby girl into the world. Daniella Susan Fleiss was born on December 30, 2011, at 7 lbs 10 oz and 21 inches.  We couldn’t be more thrilled and excited to meet the newest addition to the RTR team!



2 New Arrivals


We are getting in some amazing new arrivals for spring and just in time for your long weekend getaways! Three of our favorites are the Yigal Azroul Maxi, Robert Rodriguez Romper, and Jay Godfrey Frock.


3 Creative Cakes


Mikkel made this unbelievably real looking cake to celebrate her brother graduating from Paramedic School!





Ashley took a week for some r&r Cabo San Lucas. Family, friends, sun, and sand…sounds like the perfect way to ring in 2012!




5Congrats Beyonce and Jay Z!


Congrats to B and J, who welcomed a baby girl into the world yesterday. Jay Z released a song today about the new addition to their family and we are just barely holding back tears. He closes with, “The most amazing feeling I feel, words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real, baby I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you…”


6 Massimo Vitali Exhibit

Brooke went to see the Massimo Vitali exhibit this weekend at the Bonni Bonrubi gallery on the Upper East Side. She definitely recommends checking it out; the photographs are so gorgeous in person.



7 Traveling Red Dress Project


We love the Traveling Red Dress Project started by the Bloggess. For the past year and some, she has been circulating a red dress to people who need a little glamour and pick me up in their lives. Check out the amazing stories on her blog and be sure to contact her if you’d like to donate a red gown!


8Forks over Knives Documentary


Mikkel loves this documentary about how a plant based diet is healthiest. Plus, Erica’s grandmother, Evelyn Oswick, makes an appearance (at 38 seconds in the video)!




9 Kombucha on Tap

Chondita loves 61 Local, a domestic beer hall in Carrol Gardens featuring communal seating, kombucha and Lambrusco on tap, and locally sourced bites like ricotta toast. Yum!!


10 Pipa


Katie celebrated her birthday at Pipa, a restaurant housed in ABC Carpet and Home. The decor includes chandeliers, baubles, and more that are all for sale!
