Had a great weekend, my mom visited Saturday morning.  We went to a gallery, and then Donna Karan's store Urban Zen.  My mom had won a gift certificate, so she bought so really nice oils, a necklace, and we each bought a really cool bracelet made by Jason Ross, he is really cool and you should check him out.  Here is a picture of the bracelet we bought, please excuse my man wrists.   

 In the afternoon I met up with my best childhood friend Vicky,  and her husband.  We walked around China town and little Italy, and slowly made our way to the Staten Island Ferry.  It's so nice to catch up with people you haven't seen in a while.

faint yoga.

I recently decided to try hot yoga with one of my roommates.  I was definitely very nervous before hand, and I think the instructor noticed.  When I was younger, I had the tendency to faint, because of low blood pressure.  Whether it be during chorus or at an amusement park, fainting was/is never convenient.  Within the first 15 minutes I got the same sensation of fainting.  I had to sit for almost half of the class, but I hope it was somewhat effective.  I might just stick to regular vinyasa yoga from now on.
These were my before and after faces:

As far as decorating in my apartment, it is coming along nicely.  My roommates and I all decided that we will each get a wall in the living room that we can decorate to our choosing.  Considering my obsession with British culture, it was a no-brainer that was theme was to be British.  As you may be able to see, so far I have a "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster, a vintage map of London, a Union Jack poster, a poster of the London Tube, and some photographs from my travels in England and Scotland this summer.

it's a lifestyle.

For the academic year I have decided to go vegan.  Although partly for dietary reasons, I am doing it mainly for environmental reasons.  Although when eating out it can be slightly difficult, it is quite easy at home, and rather good.  I came home for the long weekend, and made some delicious food with my mom. I purchased some local organic mushrooms at a fair in Montauk, and bought tomatoes, onions, brussel sprouts and other food at the farm stand near my house.

internet problems.

It seems that I have been having internet problems. I haven't been making any posts lately because for some reason blogger doesn't work in my apartment at school. But hey, it's alright alright alright.
