My friend Xiang is in town and everything seems new again! From the old school post office beside our building to our subway entrance, everything is seen in a different light and I just gotta learn to appreciate it all with the help of Xiang.
This is what happens when you fall into a routine and everything becomes mundane and boring! I guess I still think that subway entrance is creepy and the post office is old but she sees it as an experience! Love it!

Day one in Reykjavik started when we landed just a bit before 6 a.m. Like I mentioned before, we were stuck on the tarmac for more than an hour due to hurricane Cristobal's high winds. When we finally escaped, we picked up our rental car, grabbed some breakfast and coffee at Reykjavik Roasters, checked into our apartment we booked via Airbnb, napped and had lunch at Dirty Burgers and Ribs just before driving out to the Golden Circle for some geyser action. For dinner, we checked out a local fare, Snaps which was just a few minutes from our apartment. A jam-packed first day but totally worth it!

|Betsey Johnson 'Pre Nup' Spring 2015 NYFW show|
|I was ready for NYFW but not my feet. First day back from Iceland.|
This would be my first time attending a Betsey Johnson fashion show and it is probably the most entertaining fashion show I have experienced thus far. I mean you've got drag queens, real housewives and a transgender model (from America's Next Top Model) taking the runway; Christina Milian in front row (what is she up to nowadays?), cameo by Dancing with the Stars' Tony Dovolani (Betsey's partner on the show), a dedication to marriage equality (yay!) and finally, seeing Betsey's signature cartwheel split (with her granddaughter!). All there. Am I missing something? Probably. There was so much going on. I'm happy to see first hand why there's always a buzz echoing from NYFW's most eclectic show. I wouldn't necessarily wear any of the clothes because you know, I'm married and not because I would dare wear a sheer wedding dress with furry pom-poms covering my lady bits. I was trying to figure out which items are the buyers interested in. Her clothes are just a tad too crazy for me but fun to see on the models. I caught myself giggling a few times. Some of the models were just so quirky. Actually, all of them.
Who goes to a fashion show and forgets her camera? Me! But handy iphone in hand, I got some pretty decent pictures from second row. Enjoy!
