Valentine’s day is approaching us, for some of us its a dreaded day, others its the one chance to find there love or to express there love to someone. So I have a couple suggestions that I came across for singles this year in NYC, because I know how hard it can be to find the best thing to do in such a big city!
Katch Astoria was voted one of the “Best singles spots” in queens. They are hosting a “Nuts and bolts” Valentine’s Day singles party for those trying to meet someone. Everyone will receive half of two-piece nuts and bolts set upon entry and will be challenged to find its match to win a special prize!
For those of you who are trying to just forget completely that Valentine’s Day exists, which I know there are a lot of you because my friends are most of them. However, there is a sweet celebration all month at the City Bakery Hot Chocolate Festival. 3W 18th st, Flatiron
Another way to meet someone is going to the Valentine’s Day salsa Class at Alvin Ailey Dance in Midtown where couples will be encouraged to rotate and try new partners!
Lastly, for those who are just not about Valentine’s Day at all because we all have that one person that made us not like it anymore… There is the “Rejection Show: Valentine’s Day Heart break Haven”. Which is a comedy show at 8pm on the 14th at 14th 622 Degraw st in Gowanus.
Enjoy your day! Id love to hear what you plan on doing!
Hey guys, Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a feast (and got those shoes they were secretly hoping for). Even though Christmas is technically over (here in DR it isn’t over until January 6th) there is still plenty of Christmas spirit going on in the streets. If this is your favorite holiday and you are still in NYC take a stroll outside down Madison Avenue(I understand it’s freezing but quick snap chats to make your friends jealous will make it worth it). Every block is nicely decorated with lights, trees, nutcracker and so much more. There is also a Downton Abbey Truck giving out free tea and biscuits (in my worst English accent) right by Bryant Park. You could also proclaim your love in the snow for fun as I usually do (although, I’m not sure this car owner would agree haha).
On the other hand you could sit at home, and upload pictures of all your gifts and brag about them (like I will do in a few). Well, first I’m really proud that I got my mom two pairs of Manolo Blahniks (yep, you heard right and on a student budget). Seriously no joke, it is one of the perks of being at a fashion school, your friends get to work at sample sales and shoes like these are at a special discount price for them such as (GUESS… nope.. LOWER.. nope…LOWER) ok, I’ll tell you $25 a pair.
Second, I’m delighted with the pearl necklace my boyfriend got me (delighted is an understatement, I have fallen in Love).
Please feel free to brag about your gifts , can’t wait!
