Happy Monday! Had such a wonderful weekend with Mr. Fox as we originally planned to visit Long Beach, Long Island and then got lost and ended up at the Robert Moses State Park where we discovered an awesome board walk leading to the Fire Island Lighthouse. Sometimes we just need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and wander off to seclusion to get your mind right. If you're looking for a quick drive just within the proximity of NYC to enjoy nature or even to have some fun in the sun at the beach- I suggest you take a drive and travel to Long Island for some amazing change of scenery.
Went out with the gang yesterday for the Sebago x Nexus Project Launch Party at the Hudson Terrace. Great venue, open bar, and amazing company is all I have to say! Of course, I had to come out and support the bestie, William Yan since he's one out of five tastemakers who contributed to this huge collaborative project executed by Ronnie Fieg. The shoes will be dropping through out the summer beginning with Marcus Troy's exclusives which actually launches today. Be sure to cop your pair since it's a limited release! :)
Here's some pics from the event:
Antenna Magazine did a spread on this collaboration. Be sure to pick up the mag!
The party was poppin' and it was nice to see familiar faces. Good luck to Marcus Troy's shoe launch today (nice to see you again!) and make sure to be on the look out all summer long for footwear exclusives from the Nexus Project! Good times!
So for the past two seasons, Lafayette Reynolds has always been my favorite 'flamboyant' character in TrueBlood. However, I think I may have grown fond of a new character this time around for Season 3- meet Talbot. He's Russell Edgington's (vampire the King of Mississippi) lover of over 700 years, played by Greek actor- Theo Alexander. All I can say is he's fabulous *snaps fingers* and this is why:
Look at his demeanor as he welcomes Bill into the mansion after gracefully walking down the stairs...
Love his mannerism as he clings onto Bill taking him up to his guest room while explaining the horror story history of where he's about to stay...
Look at the door he picked for the guest room, "100% Sterling Silver from Morocco". As you know, vampires are not too fond of silver. What a deadly choice huh?
Here's Talbot looking extremely young and vibrant in comparison to his aged lover, Russell.
During the beginning of dinner, Talbot serves his guests "Chilled Carbonated Blood" and claims that it's "cruelty free and willingly donated by a person who ate only tangerines for weeks". I guess that's justifies it?
Check out the dining room setting. I'm sure Talbot had something to do with this!
For your entree, "warm blood bisque infused with rose petals" ... FANCY!
For your dessert, "blood gelato with a mint garnish".
Just look at him! I love this new guy Talbot. His accent is great, he's snappy, edgy, extravagant, flamboyant, charming, romantic, dramatic... I also like Alan Ball's twist because he portrays Talbot as a vampire. In the novel, Talbot is actually human. Can't wait to see more of him this season along with his quirky old lover Russell... something's definitely stirring up! Do you dig this new character?
