After a much needed mini staycation I head back to work tomorrow. I took a few days off to celebrate my birthday and my Father’s birthday. With them being only a day a part we usually celebrate them together. Today J and I got up early went to the DMV so I could renew my ID and then we headed down to Paramus, NJ to the Garden State Plaza mall. We hit up all of my favourite stores like Nordies, Neiman Marcus, J. Crew, Macys and Banana Republic. Aside from wanting all the shoes, mainly this amazing tartan pair of Manolo Blahniks, and of course the Valentino Rockstud in emerald. But alas I did not end up purchasing a new pair of shoes.
I was really disappointed with J. Crew, mainly because everything I have been scoping out online was not available in the store, I’m sure they could have ordered anything I wanted, but the whole point of birthday shopping is instant gratification. I guess I’ll just have to wait for my gift cards to arrive in the mail.
J and I also stopped off at Tiffany and Co., which is always a must. I had a specific purpose in mind: find and try on the Bone cuff! I was showed a medium in sterling silver and ruthenium, I definitely like the ruthenium better. I am really glad I got to try the cuff on, because I need a small.
We then stopped for lunch at Joe’s attached to the mall, close to Nordies, I had mac and cheese with buffalo chicken, J had a fish sandwich. We both had better meals from there previously. I think they changed their menu around a bit.
The rest of our day was spent relaxing at home with a few beers and watching some tv. I tried (finally) Brewery Ommegang Game Of Thrones Three Eyed Raven dark saison ale. It’s dark and delicious. I can’t believe that I waited so long to try it (what kind of nerd am I?). So I raise my glass (or bottle, cause I’m that classy). Here’s to 27, and on that note, it’s time to end!
All for now,
