(NY) Charmin Po(o)p Up Store!


I went by 42nd street today for a meeting and I came outside to this!  The Charmin Pop Up Toilets!  The cold weather always makes me want go to pee to I had to go check it out. Each mini toilet was equipped with 3 kinds of TP for your pleasure.  I use the Ultra soft at home so I tried to Ultra Strong to see what that was all about.

The Charmin Toilet Photo Op!

All the restrooms available for use
I love pop up stores! I also love experiential marketing. I had a good chat with the reps Larry, Kevin and Donny.  Outgoing, friendly and super helpful. Donny offered to pose with me! Prom time lol – It’s a giant toilet! So fun – The outside is gold, there a 2-step thing to climb up to the ‘throne’. To make you laugh, the reps say.. come on, let it all out >_< ew.

There is even stroller parking… You know, for all the moms… 🙂

Ha ha ha!  For more, follow them on Twitter @EnjoyTheGo: Dedicated to making going to the bathroom more enjoyable. We all go. Those who go with Charmin, really Enjoy the Go
This is a classic case of a huge company with a huge budget and huge idea trying to make use of ‘social media’.  How come you have 160 Twitter followers only?  Sometimes Social Media needs to be prompted and steered. Not once when I was in there did anyone ask me if I was on Twitter or if I wanted to share my photo on Facebook. SMH. If you gave me that kinda marketing budget, I wouldn’t use it to wipe my butt…

(NY) Mysterious Guy #4

I was on the F train last week heading to the Pro Keds event and I saw this fine fella.  I noticed his square handkerchief in his blazer pocket, I noticed his Varvatos-esque boots and of course his fingerless gloves. But more so it was his magnetic aura that interesting people all possess.  Anyway, in my previous post about how ‘he has to match my fly‘ – I am always amused when my thoughts manifest into reality.  I got off at 2nd street and left for the event.

Then I called Joey telling her I swear I felt like he wanted to talk to me too lol. But I was too chicken. So here is the twist of Guy #4… you ready? HE WAS HEADING TO THE SAME EVENT.   So anyway needless to say, he is just as awesome as I thought. Justin Bridges, stylist and owner of Tucked LLC.
Til the next one…

(NY) TopShop Rocks

In September, I bought a coat from TopShop. I kinda splurged but I really loved it.  But have 2 months of being with me in LA, TO and NY – the pocket decided to rrrrrrrrrip. Sad to say, I had to bring it back to TopShop.  They were so nice and helpful and told me I can exchange for something of equal value.

Those of you who know how I shop…know that this was not an easy task for me. It took me almost 8 months to find a jacket I liked! And it broke 🙁  And if you guys remember, my Zara suede hobo bag also broke… Grrr… So I spent 2 hours and a half in TopShop and exchanged my coat for a new coat AND a bag 🙂
Fur Collared Flying Jacket


 Leather Metal Trim Satchel


Pretty good deal right? Thank you TopShop for being flexible and putting customers like me first ^_^

(NY) ProKeds S/S11 Preview


My girl Aisha is so super connected and I love her! She invited me to the ProKeds Preview party last night on 76 Orchard St and it was an evening of streetwear bloggers, fashion fanatics and everyone who wants to mingle amongst them. I went down with Joey and it was a delightful evening with fresh fly sneakers and boys who love them.
Open bar of red + white wine, Red Stripe and TsingTao with a crowd to match! Jamaican beer and Chinese beer is always a recipe for a good time. There was also cod fish coquettes, jerk chicken wings and baby beef patties. Yum.
