Royal Wedding Obsession

You have to notice two main trends about this Royal Wedding.  1. People are obsessed.  2. People are asking why there is an obsession.

Let me break this down for you in a very technical theory I have come up with.

It comes down to jealousy.  Jealousy is a reflection of your own issues. Fixation is a form of jealousy in this case.  People are fixated on the royal wedding because they are jealous. But that's OK! Who dosnt want Kate's fairytale?!

So there you have it!

But actually there are other reasons as well.  There are people who love weddings (me), or are interested in historical moments or its just unavoidable because we live in a society that is crazy about this stuff...

New Yorkers For Children Spring Gala 2011

Info and photos from New York Social Diary.

When: April 12, 2011
Where: Mandarin Oriental, New York
What: A Fool's Fete.  More than $550,000 was raised to benefit youth in foster care.  The event was designed by David Stark.
Why do I care:  Well besides a good cause, it looked fun!




The Kitchen NYC + Chef Jet Tila + TY KU

My friend Rachel has been working hard on the launch of this awesome new concept called The Kitchen NYC.  You know when you think it would be awesome to hire a chef to come cook for a dinner party but your kitchen sucks?  Or you really want to throw an event and have to deal with catering issues due to lack of equipment?  Or you are an awesome chef and want to throw a party?  The Kitchen NYC is the answer.

It's a state of the art kitchen WITH an event space.  A 7,500 square foot space.  They are extremely flexible with decor and set up too so the options are open.  From an intimate dinner party to a cocktail party for the World Series, you can do it there.  And it's pet friendly!

The event I went to featured Chef Jet Tila.  Currently at Wazuzu in the Wynn Las Vegas, he was in NYC and taught me (and the rest of the room) all about Yellowtail along with Chef de Cuisine Scott Okazaki, who was a great sport answering my stupid questions about travelling with knives.  Things I retained: The collar is a delicacy (Mr. Wynn enjoys it) and this particular fish came from the waters of Australia due to the state of Japan and it's waters.  I wish I remembered more!  I was too distracted by the bomb spicy crunchy tuna rolls and TY KU mojitos!

That’s right, my friends at TY KU were coincidentally there providing drinks for the night.  They also launched their brand new Silver Sake, a more affordable yet still quality bottle.  After the demo, Chef Jet did a superb job of working the room.  He showed a couple ladies how to make sushi rolls, and actually COMPLIMENTED Cleveland during our conversation with him.  He couldn't have been more friendly and I am happy I got to meet him.  If I do ever break the Vegas spell and end up going there, I'll be sure to make some reservations at Wazuzu.

E! did it with Khloe & Lamar, so will they do it with Kim and Kris?  Page Six reports that she will be looking into New York City apartments to be closer to her newest beau which got me thinking.  I bet they will come up with a crazy offer for a finale wedding of Kim & Kourtney Take New York!

Would you marry someone for a million dollars?  I would consider it depending on the circumstances.  But if circumstances say you're already a millionaire and been married before, would you do it for showbiz?  When is enough enough?  I think she would.  E! would be offering a hopeless romantic her dream wedding for the stunt.  Sadly I think she can't say no to that (which also gets me going on the definition of marriage, but I wont get into that now).  Also, I'm calling it now that it will be more then Khloe got and it will cause some friction even if it's not on camera, you can bet on that.

Sidenote:  I dont know these people and I am always a firm believer in not judging anyone in general and especially if you don't know them but it's hard not to judge when they put it out there for you to judge (follow that? haha). I don't doubt Khloe and Lamar were in love and planned to marry anyway.  Thrilled to see that from the outsider's perspective, it all seems like it is working out.  Great for them! But Kim is different.

Amber Heard Twins

The first time I saw her in Pineapple Express, she reminded me of Blake Lively. 
Then I just saw her in a new preview with dark hair and thought she was KStew. 
And while making this, was also making me think, Olivia Wilde a bit.

Winter Reading

Props to fancy publishing house Assouline for doing an amazing social media giveaway to get attention to the book below.  A getaway to St. Barths!  The most gorgeous area in the world in my opinion.  One hour left to enter.  I did days ago.  Also congrats to Pamela Fiori for picking a subject most enjoyable to write about.  Off to daydreaming...
