Mid-week review: happies and saddies

I don't have too much to say fitness-wise today. Yesterday night was so strange. I got to the gym, and just could not get into it. Instead I walked around the piers along the East River by my building and the around the neighborhood for an hour and called it a night. I am going to try to sneak in a solid hour of cardio at the gym before heading to the Socrates Sculpture Park Outdoor Cinema night. Every week they show an international film and a local restaurant from that region caters it for free. Pretty cool. Tonight the French Films The Red Balloon and Persepolis are playing with catering from 718.

So I thought I would share some things on my radar this week, kind of, well really, random, but here goes. FYI, likes and dislikes ahead!
First off, I am really excited about Gossip Girl Sept 1. I think I am going to try to reserve the screening room in my building and have a season premiere party. I just love the "racy ads". This one is good, but nothing compares to the OMFG.

What I am less excited about is the Botkier bags at Target. I went to check them out, not very cute (read: fug) or well made in person. Sadness! I'm happier with my bendie bag.

But I am excited about the sale at Paragon. Check it out online. They have the cutest sneakers.

Speaking of cute. Time Out had an article on Fit2Date. A company that creates working out events for singles. The article is pretty funny. It is so something I am theoretically game for, but don't know if I have the guts to sign up. Plus $200 is a lot! (the first picture is from the article)

An article that made me less happy was "The Chunky Side: The Shape of Things to Come" It reminded me of seeing Wall-E. So sad. Did anyone else read this?

Lastly, my new love is Kombucha. This stuff is so invigorating and very satisfying. Check it out if you haven't already!
