On My Radar

Want to know how to guarantee a good week? Kick it off with a super fancy dinner on Sunday night that goes right into early Monday morning. Garrett and I made reservations last month for Eleven Madison Park which is the fifth best restaurant in the world right now.
It was honestly one of the coolest as well as the most delicious dinners I’ve ever enjoyed. We didn’t take out our phones (so no photos– the NY Times has some), but there were too many courses to count, each better than the last. I unzipped my dress in the cab home because I was so full. My favorite course was their take on a breakfast sandwich: super tiny perfectly buttered biscuits, caviar, miniature eggs Benedict, and hollandaise sauce. We finished at 1am with coffee, a milk chocolate guessing game, and a fancy take on the New York pretzel. Definitely an amazing night. 
On my radar…


ONE // Kate Spade Expansion

Kate Spade just announced a major expansion plan… including a partnership with Magnolia Bakery, a line of kitchenware with Macy’s, yoga clothes, and a furniture line. Hello! Who’s excited?!

TWO // On Beauty

A new documentary is coming out featuring beautiful (truly beautiful!) children who were born with various conditions. I teared up– and smiled a lot– while watching the trailer and can’t wait to see the full film.

THREE // Breathing Gif

As someone who frequently suffers from panic attacks, I know both the benefits of breathing techniques and the actual challenge of getting your breathing under control. It seems like breathing should be super easy, I mean, it’s part of the autonomic nervous system after all. Yet, during a panic attack or simply times of stress, it can be a hurdle. I loved this GIF because it helps you get a great balance and rhythm without having to think much.

FOUR // PS22’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It”

NSFW, unless you’re totally comfortable bawling in front of your coworkers. You’ve been warned.

FIVE // Headspace

Maxie and I tried a 30 day meditation challenge and we both failed miserably. I couldn’t get into it. But, I recently learned about Headspace, a guided 10 minute/day meditation program you can access online or on your phone. I’m tempted to try… any users out there who recommend it?!

Anything great on your radar this weekend or fun weekend plans?!

Oh wow ALL of that is one meal? I thought that was the menu and you had to order which items you wanted. But this is even better! I'll take it all! / That GIF is awesome 🙂 / My favorite meditation is THIS ONE I found on YouTube. You'll love it!!! Well, I hope you will because I do 😀 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

That. Restaurant. Looks. Amazing! I can't believe they serve ALL of that food in one sitting! I would probably do a little belt-loosening as well after that meal… That being said, the menu for that night alone makes me want to make reservations this second though!

That restaurant looks amazing! Oh my goodness. I would be so overwhelmed. I will have to try Headspace! I've been suffering from a lot of stress recently, and while I've gotten better with managing it, I think meditation and an app like Headspace may help!

I can't wait for the Kate Spade collection! And I'll be watching those videos later tonight so I'm not ugly crying in front of people lol! Also I've tried Headspace and I did it for a week in the summer, tbh it takes a whole lot of willpower to comit to it everyday. I stopped because it became a drag, and it wasn't something that I felt I had time for or had any interest in. My therapist asked me to give a try so I did but I gave up and now find little things that help me- like running a few miles or reading a good book:) I hope my review helps a little bit, if you have any questions about the app though you can always comment me back:)

Headspace has a nice "take 10" challenge where you get your first 10 10-minute sessions for free. I enjoyed that, and thought it was really well done, but haven't bit the bullet and paid for it yet!

I love Headspace! I actually loved it so much that I decided to take a leap on the paid version, even though it would normally be out of my price range. The premium version has awesome specific sessions plus guided and unguided sessions. It's nice to have some guidance when you're just getting started and then transition to the unguided.
