LIFESTYLE | I've been a bad, bad blogger.

Throwback Thursday 
Throwing it back to a few months ago.

So I know I've been super behind with a few my posts and this post should set things straight.  I went to see the Uncluded with Aesop Rock at Carnegie Hall, I went to Martier in Midtown for the afternoon and finally got to see Atmosphere at the Highline Ballroom, and then I never posted them!  These three posts in particular are from quite a bit ago, so I back posted them a bit closer to when I should have.

So here: Happy Throwback Thursday.  Check out what I've been up to and what I wore.

LIFESTYE | New Hair, Thought I'd Share

Do Redheads and Blondes really have more Fun?
Cue the Slow Motion Hair Tousling. 

That slow motion, movie moment after you get your hair done.  You know the one, you walk outside, the sun glistening on your shiny locks.  You slowly do the 'hair flip' and realize your hair has never felt this soft.  Like Ever. And now your day may carry on.

So, I'm sure some of you guys have seen this face on my blog before, but for those who don't know. This is Erin -she is my best friend, sister, roommate, partner in crime and now she will be my blogging and media assistant. Stay tuned for her 'about' blurb on the blog and more Erin.  

So this lovely lady and I have been discussing a good dye job for a while and we finally did it!  I've been telling her that she would look amazing as a redhead, it took almost two years of convincing and she finally did it!  I however have been debating going blonde-ish, a sort of natural blonde- well as natural as an Asian girl can look as a blonde.

MUSIC | Atmosphere's Southsider's Album Release Party

See, I'm not insane, in fact I'm kind of rational
When I be askin', "Yo, where did all the passion go?"

I FINALLY got to see Atmosphereeee! I saw them at the Highline Ballroom for their Southsider's Album release party. If you have never heard of Atmosphere and you like indie hip-hop fueled with awesome lyrical poetry, surprising beats and flavors -well, you've got your homework. I've always wanted to see Slug and ANT and it was no surprise at all, the expectations were vastly exceeded, they played a freekin' 5 or 6 song long encore.  I think we know they do it for the music and the love. There really are no words to describe what a fantastic show it was, but there are a bunch of videos below.  See for yourself.  

I also went back and shot my look from that evening, I kept it comfy casual that night.  Something I could be in from day to night, walking around in the city. A skirt, a t-shirt, and flat sandals is one of my favorite go-to's. See what I wore, check out my shots, and watch videos of a few tracks. 

DAILY OUTFIT | Skipping Stones

Skip along your own path,
but don't take the shortcut.

Now, its super easy to always take the shortcut or simply cut corners here and there.  Though, realize that it only cheats you.  I like something for nothing as much as the next person, though I realize it is highly improbable and when you get something for nothing, the something is usually a nothing in disguise. 

In other words -more work pays off, eventually.  I know you are all tired of hearing me give excuses for not blogging lately, though however true it may be.  I could have tried harder to keep it on point. You can always try harder, go bigger, or you can just go home.  For most the best things are always dreamed big, way too much work, and you forget what being home is.  Though the best payoffs, are always too much work.  I might as well get accustomed now. 

So, on that note this is the last time I will be mentioning the lateness of next chunk of my posts.  I'm just going to post them.  There is so much to catch up on from my spring and the start of my summer! So here is a sweet casual look, perfect to run around town quick, grab nice little lunch, or maybe just take a walk.  

LIFESTYLE | tap ny '14 - craft beer and fine food festival

A Little Rain won't stop this Parade.
All you can eat & All you can drink.
Tap NY- Hunter Mountain  

I will say that that the rain did cause me to most definitely take way less photos than I had planned. Though, I won't let that stop me from telling you about this fun event and the fact that I will most certainly be attending next year.  Though, as it has been crazy, I'm sad to say this post is about three months late. Better late than never and be on the look out for next year's adventure - as well as the up and coming North Fork Craft Beer Festival. 

Tap New York is one of New York's annual craft beer and fine food festival that takes place each year up on Hunter Mountain.  It goes on all weekend and its all you can drink and eat included in your ticket price.  Totally a steal for those of us on a budget, it you've got money to burn, don't worry there are tons of goodies to make you want to go broke.

Its scenic and there is a pleasantly overwhelming amount of beer to attempt to try, but be warned - its near impossible to taste them all. Do not let that tiny glass deceive you, you will be filled with regret and not remember a single beer.

 Besides all the amazing Long Ireland Beer, I did find a few other beers I fell in love with.  This year they were:

DAILY OUTFIT | I Pity the Fool

Channeling MR. T for outfit inspiration
Black and Gold; Black and Gold.

On second thought, maybe I'm the fool for thinking I'm flippin' super woman over here!  Phew. It's been a crazy couple months.  My hiatus was not long enough, it seems days, weeks, and especially summers are never long enough. Why do I love sleep so much anyway- afterall, we'll have plenty of time for that in the end.  Now is the time for getting 'ish done and pulling all nighters.

But, Hello All -  I've missed out on a month of the blogosphere; but I'm back in action.  I'm going to try to hold it together and keep somewhat of a schedule.  I've got a lot going on and I can't wait to share it all with my very patient readers. Ahhh, here it goes:
