TTH’s Apartment

Is this or is this not exactly what you thought Taylor Tomasi Hill‘s apartment would look like? I probably wouldn’t have foreseen the plants (but being from Texas she probably misses greenery) but everything else looks about par and of course fabulous.

The Home of Lauren Santo Domingo

Vogue Gallery

I’m not a “fan” of Lauren Santo Domingo or LSD as she likes to refer to herself. I’m not sure why she’s so popular with the media or the fashion crowd. I do, however, have to give credit where credit is due and she does always look chic. Here is a glimpse inside her Manhattan apartment via Vogue. My favorite room is definitely the office/closet. I also love her hippo bar cart.

You can also check out the most-wanted items from her home here.

The New York Diet

Almost everyone who lives in New York loves New York and a lot of us who don’t live there love it as well. Lots of people (me) would live there if they could and like to live vicariously through those that do. I hope you get my jist. I recently discovered a section, Grub Street New York in (my favorite) NY Mag that details well-known New Yorker’s diets for a week. They include all sorts of chefs, writers, designers and models. For some reason I am enthralled by what people eat and all things food, really.

I already know what Anthony Bourdain eats but still enjoyed reading about it. I love his voice and am really wanting to read his books. An excerpt: Wednesday, June 9 “Badly hung-over from the night before. Regretting the negroni before the wine, so there was no question of breakfast. Nothing helps hangovers anymore; it used to be a nice cold Coke, a joint, and as soon as my appetite would come back, maybe some leftover kung-pow chicken — spicy Chinese food helps. But as a father of a 3-year-old, I’m not smoking a lot of weed anymore.” Tony’s always right.

Alessandra Ambrosio seems to eat a lot like everyone else, she just doesn’t look it. One day consisted of “I had coffee and an English muffin sandwich with ham and cheese at home. For lunch I was at home, too: I had rice, beans, salad, and a chicken breast. The nanny made it for me — she cooks for my daughter and I had some. In the afternoon I had two chocolate-chip cookies and a green-tea latte. In the nighttime, I had a dinner at my house, so I went and bought cheese, olives, salami, caviar — all those things. I had some lobster ravioli and a little tiramisu. We bought it ready-made, it was one of those things you just warm it up. To drink I had some wine.” Sounds good to me.

I especially enjoyed reading about Catherine Malandrino‘s diet right before and after her NYFW show. “During the presentation, I didn’t eat — it was all about the collection. But after the show, a table was waiting for me at Ed’s Chowder House, where I celebrated with family and friends. We ate oysters and jumbo shrimp and drank Champagne; it was a four-hour lunch! I felt exhausted after that, and I went home and fell asleep until midnight. I woke up starving, dreaming about spaghetti Bolognese, so my partner Bernard made some for me — we ate pasta and celebrated again with Champagne. It was beautiful.”

Eating and enjoying food with friends and loved ones is such a wonderful part of life, don’t you think? Reading and writing about this makes me very excited for the weekend.
