10 Things We Love 4/25/2011

 

1 The Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding is this Friday, the 29th and we are gearing up for the big revealing. Who designed Kate’s dress? What will she look like? We’ve been channeling the Royal Wedding in hues of blue, these royal looks and the occasional British accent… not to mention some of us will be waking up at 4AM to see everything happen live!

2 Tribeca Film Festival

This weekend was all about the Tribeca Film Festival! Already on our roster of movies watched are Black Butterflies, The Good Doctor and Limelight.

Up next is the YSL documentary, L’Amour Fou. What are you watching thsis time around? Get your tickets here!

3Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday was cheery in NYC with the warm weather and sun that we’ve been missing for way too long. Nisha’s favorite part about Easter was definitely the beautiful Easter dresses and the giggles of children as they hunt for Easter eggs and rifle through their baskets. What was your favorite part? 

 

4David Burke’s Fishtail

Blaire enjoyed a delicious Easter Sunday brunch at David Burke’s Fishtail this weekend. Her best suggestion? The cheesecake lollipop tree. Yum!

Olivia suggests the Steamed Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Enoki Champagne Dressing for a no-fail delicous meal.

10Lani Kai

This week AJ was feeling like spring, so she headed to Lani Kai, a tiki-style lounge in SoHo. The mojitos are made to keep you coming back and you may as well- the downstairs area is perfect for a birthday party.
