Freida Pinto on the cover of Glamour Magazine
On ethnicity in Hollywood… “I think people are starting to become more color-blind in the industry. Of course, my Indian-ness cannot be ignored. At the same time, if I am being considered for a romantic comedy, I would like if [the script] didn’t try to inject as much ethnicity into the story as possible.” Read More at Glamour.com
JCrew Shopping Spree! ...kind of
Last week I got one of the best work perks ever! A shopping party at J-Crew - one of my favorite stores ever! We got to go to J-Crew and each pick out whatever we wanted with a $200 cap. It was such a hard decision because I love their spring collection! Since I’ve started working I’ve tried to shop smarter and buy things that are more versatile, adult and work appropriate. Hence I...
Chelsea Brewery - The Perfect Birthday Dinner
On Saturday, the day after Priti’s 21st birthday we decided to go to dinner at Chelsea Brewing Company at the Chelsea Piers. It’s on 18th and 11th Avenue (a bit far, but totally worth it!) on the Hudson. We went right at around 6pm when the sun was starting to set and it was beautiful - definitely the best time to go.

It’s so beautiful. Only thing missing from this video postcard is a rainy day (though it shows the cloudy days!).
OMG is that Hanson!?
So I was on People.com reading this article about how baby Hanson (who for some reason I thought still was about you know… 15) just had a second child. He looked totally different and I couldn’t even identify WHICH Hanson bro he was. Not that I’m a huge Hanson fan or anything, but I did bob my head a bit to mmm bop when it came out in the 90’s and I was in...
How to: Bring Spring Break to the Workplace
1) Get yourself ready to look hot: work on your guns in your cubicle, bang out crunches during team meetings and make sure to count loud. 2) Bring bottles of self-tanner to meetings. While liberally applying, matter-of-factly state, “What? It’s moisturizer - my hands are dry.” 3) Dig out the old portable Mai Tai machine and set up near your desk. For February’s tip,...
