Keep it in the Closet

One of my goals for next year is to move into a nicer apartment.  After roughing it in my tiny one bedroom for almost two years, there is only so much more I can take.  In addition to purging my storage unit and apartment of all the crap I know I don't like or need, I am constantly scoping out ideas for how to make my next space super organized.  My number one wish for my next home is to have one of those custom closets.

The Container Store Elfa Decor Classic Reach-In 1402.68

Walmart John Louis Inc. 12" Deep Premier Closet Organizer 419.99

 Ikea Stolmen 3 Sections 560.00
The Ikea one is not my absolute favorite, but I love that it is adjustable to that you can make full use of the wall from floor to ceiling.  That is something you always have to think about in Manhattan. These options would only house 1/3 of my clothing needs and the goal is for me to see all of my clothing so that I can make use of it all.  Only a man would have this little clothing.

The Best French Macaron Ever

Today my coworkers and I took a field trip to Bouchon Bakery.  Typically I cannot stand to mix my sweet and savory.  One of the rare exceptions is Peanut Butter and Jelly.  This is my favorite macaron of all time.  I could eat 10.  Maybe it's a good thing that they are $3.50 a piece.

Bocado Cafe

My friend texted me last Saturday night to inform me that my favorite Thai place in the city closed.  This was devastating news for me.  But on the bright side . . . the sub-par Italian eatery that long sat on the corner a block from my church closed.  Recently Bocado Cafe opened up there and it's a total 180.  They may have some of the best french toast I've ever tasted.  Caramel pear syrup is nothing I would have thought of on my own, but it is amazingly delicious.  I've already gone twice.  Most of my favorite spots are south of 14th street so it's great to find something delicious on the UES.   Hooray for a relaxing summer.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the reason is not because . . .  The reason is that . . .
