@GossipGirl Recap: Crazy, Cupid Love

Is there any better way to celebrate the eve of Valentine’s Day than watching the Upper East Siders shop Cartier jewellery in the comfort of their own home? At least Serena (Blake Lively) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) are on #teamforeveralone tonight. Of course Blair (Leighton Meester) is always on a mission for love and tries to set up Dan and Serena. As for Nate (Chace Crawford) and chasing poor catering girls, I don’t think Blair’s cupid skills can help with that.

Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) is the life of the episode and totally schooling Blair on manipulating her minions. She creates a “Come As You Are” tribute to high school party and gets the Spectator to hold it. Plaid, khakis and ‘spin the bottle’ games? I’m in! As if we’re not done waltzing in the past, even Charlie (Kaylee DeFer) comes back and immediately gets herself caught in Georgina’s web. But the secret weapon to crushing Blair’s not-so-loveless day is through more of Dan’s interference.

Georgina forces Dan to kiss Blair, but of course that doesn’t happen. He needs to do it on his own (and in front of Serena) so it can really have an impact. Although I’m totally a Dan and Blair fan, I’m not enjoying how this is playing out. There’s too much to lose: a pre-nup, a best-friend, Chuck? I’m glad Blair at least knows better to stay away from this one. But we all know how well she deals with desire.

Xoxo, @missamandachen

Reebok Classics – Jonathan Mannion Gallery Event

Reebok-Classics-Jonathan-Mannion

Over the weekend, I got the chance to view the @ReebokClassics Instaclassics event featuring the photography of Jonathan Mannion. Jonathan started his career with just a passion for hip hop, expanding his passion into what his career is today in photography. With celebrity clientele like Lauryn Hill, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams, and many more, Jonathan Mannion has become a huge name in the hip hop/urban industry as being the photography that brings rappers, singers, and stars alike, back down to the basics and to their roots. Jonathan takes his photographs to a next level, letting the celeb he’s shooting really shine through. In attendance to the weekend fun-filled event includes The Game, Swizz Beatz, Rocsi Diaz, Omarion, Teyana Taylor with performances by DJ Quik and Big Daddy Kane.

The Secret World of Arrietty @DisneyAnimation

A beautiful movie that is great for everyone in the family! The ‘Borrowers’ take things from humans that they will not miss. Like a tissue or a cube of sugar. Arrietty is seen by a young boy who is ill and learns to be friends with humans against her parents wishes. The best and my favorite part is when the cat meows oh-so-cutely at the end!

Sophisticated Twin Designers: @Mataano Presentation and @ChefRoble

During New York Fashion Week, there are hundreds of events all over the city. I love it when designers take the time to do something very special for their fans.

This is exactly what twin designers Ayaan and Idy did on Sunday.

Mataano


They rented a beautiful space and presented their line in an intimate setting with 100 close friends.  To make it extra special, the event was catered by Chef Roble! Delicious….
