i love you, beth cooper

Official I Love You, Beth Cooper trailer on YouTube

I might have issues with Hayden Panettiere's new movie. First of all, what's with the comma in the title, I Love You, Beth Cooper. But that's not the least of it. Her character seems a bit, um, well, MEAN. Seventeen magazine invited us to a special preview screening later this month, where Ms. Panettiere herself will make a guest appearance. Seems like a super-fun outing, getting to see ol' Hayden live in the flesh and all, but based on the trailer, I will not be rooting for Beth Cooper. I'll be rooting for the other guy. Whatever his name is. The awkward geeky one. Poor kid.

Do you think Hayden Panettiere's character is a bit toooo mean? Take our poll!

afternoon fashion treat

French macarons have nothing to do with coconut. Read on.

If you work in the Garment District in NYC, chances are you have heard about Macaron, and particularly about their lightly sweet and delicate macarons made with almond paste (not coconut) that crumble when you take a bite. Yum! Macaron is a very French little lunch place that opened last summer to rave reviews among those in-the-know. The place is tucked unassumingly into a narrow walk-in space on 36th Street between 7th Avenue and Broadway. If you have lunched in the Garment District with any frequency, you know that Macaron is quite unique. Homemade food. Not a chain or chain-let. Served by the owners themselves. And they smile at you! It's the little things that make life sweet. N'est pas?

Well anyway, we recommend treating yourself to a macaron or two. They have so many exotic flavors (like poppy, lavender, jasmine tea, white chocolate, praline...), many of which rotate daily, that you will continually be satisfied. And by all means, don't miss the iced tea. Two macarons and an iced tea will set you back about $7. But hey, it's worth it every once in a while.

The lunch crowd at Macaron. A line out the door as usual.

There's always a crowd.

These macarons can be yours for a mere $1.95 each.
Tempting. Very tempting.

bryant park summer movies!

The movie screen is up at Bryant Park!

Bryant Park, June 2009. Yes a bit gloomy.

It's that time again! Although the weather is more Winter-like than Summer-like these days (what is up with June this year??), it's time for the Bryant Park Summer movies on the lawn! The screen is installed. All you need is a blanket, a picnic, and a good book to read until the movie starts. By the way, although they quote 5pm as the start time, that's just for blankets and picnicking. The movies start at dusk (8-9pm). And the place gets crowded, so arrive early to score a great seat.

How many movies have you seen on this list? I have seen 5/10.

what do “recessionista” and Us Weekly have in common?

Here’s a phrase you have heard bandied about a lot recently -- in fashion circles and beyond: “Recessionista.” Defined by Wiktionary as a noun derived from a blend of “recession” and “fashionista” (plural recessionistas),
1. A person who is able to stick to a tight budget while still managing to dress stylishly.

As Kathryn Finney, author of How to Be a Budget Fashionista says, “Frugalness is the new black.”


But did you know that Us Weekly coined the term, “recessionista”? And furthermore, they beat many others to the punch by Trademarking it over a year ago. Those who are using “recessionista” for the title of their blog, in their advertising campaign, or anywhere in print may expect to receive a Cease and Desist letter. Simple as that. In fact, I had to submit a copy of this post to Us Weekly’s legal department for approval to publish this post. I explained that I did not want to use the term, but merely write about the etymology.

Incidentally, if you are thinking about using “chiconomics” for your own self-aggrandizement, think again. Chiconomics belongs to Us as well.

If you fancy a fancy picnic, then these Victorian-style wood utensils are for you. The only question is, are they very eco-minded?
