As I dig deep to find my inner foodie, I’m more delighted with each adventure that finds me. I figured it was time to share with you guys. Insert “Eat This.” Working slug, I am open to suggestions!
I dragged my girls, Christen from DivaAndDorks.com and Danielle from Rhapsodani.com, out to Tribeca for a one-of-a-kind dining experience in New York City.
The McDonald’s Chef Event provided dishes giving us all a new perspective on their food and quality ingredients. I mean the invite said McDonald’s so I wore my frumpy Run DMC tee and ripped jeans. I was greeted with a sit down dinner, waiters at your beck and call, and the best New York view I’ve ever seen! OOPS.
The multi-course meal showcased traditional favorites remixed by McDonald’s Chef Jessica Foust, Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr., Chef James Tahhan and Chef Dale Talde.
I was floored by what these masters of the kitchen whipped up for us.
I can’t really explain how amazing this meal was. I mean, Kung Pao chicken nuggets, a cronut laced in hope and dreams (it was really praline syrup), and the beef before it’s made into a patty.
OMG! Loved every moment of this dinner. Check out my photo diary below!

Random thought: writing about how annoyed I was with Rihanna and her week of grey hair is on my list of things to do before the month is over!
Last week I was a part of a Huffington Post Live panel of grey-haired digital beauties. HUGE HUGE honor for me! We chatted about the most obvious question we all get asked by strangers everyday–why we choose to let our grey hair take over our heads, when did we start going grey, and how people react to our grey tresses. I’ve written about my hair before, it’s even in my featured posts on my blog. So I am always surprised when people ask me if my hair is natural. But I will digress on that. Check out the video below. PS I am a ball of nerves, the light was horrible, le sigh!
There are really more than three reasons why I love Sodacase.com, because I mean who doesn’t want a custom phone case these days! Shot out to my homie Yoli who put my “d” to this amazing gem. I was searching for a phone case that really showed my personality. I know it sounds silly because you might say it’s just a phone case, but geesh this is like an extension of my life so it’s gotta feel like me!
This week has been a doozy! I’ve been sad about my mother. No words can truly explain how this feels. And yet everything great and awesome that could possibly happen at work, and on my blog, is all coming to life. It’s safe to say that my Facebook status updates are inspired by a true confusion of love, hate, and anger… a few laughs are thrown in just so none of my real-life friends make a call to the psych ward.
Like many of you, my outlet of frustration is usually social media. I escape by reading status updates of people raving about pumpkin beer, how they’re feeling discombobulated after working those 12 hours, and (my favorite) people recapping their must-watch ratchet TV shows. But tonight I decided to get some visual comfort and I headed over to Pinterest.
Pinterest let me know that I am not alone. It’s a bunch of people in the world feeling sad, blue, hurt, angry–I mean I think their real-life friends should call the psych ward. I am worried for them.
But in my search I found seven of the saddest quotes from Pinterest that have me nearly bubble-snot crying by just reading. (click on any image to start the slideshow)
Hope you are having a fabulous week! Just wanted to share some awesome news with you.
Tomorrow I will be a guest on HuffPostLive. We’ll be chatting about grey hair, why you should embrace it, and why Rihanna sucks for having grey hair for just 2 days. Well… the last part is just a joke but that’s really how I feel, LOL!
