Photo Shoot Friday

Hey hey! Just got back from my Union Square/ birthday shopping excursion with Logan. We got some pretty cool pics—check 'em out:

This bunny was being filmed as it harassed that girl sitting at the table. It was kind of stupid—didn't even make me chuckle. I have no idea what was going on, but I didn't stick around to find out. 

This girl has mad hula hoop skills. I mean, hula hooping around your calf while standing on one leg? She also did it around her neck, and at one point was bouncing the hula hoop off her back. It was sweet!

This poor guy was not the best violinist in the world. Not by a long shot. I totally believe in paying it forward; I should have given him a dollar. However, the other week I gave these guys a dollar when I was passing by Union Square:

This is a bluegrass band called Larry and His Flask. They were REALLY good. A huge crowded surrounded them in a matter of minutes. My general rule for tossing someone a buck or a couple quarters is that they really have to move me in some way. If I gave every bum in New York a dollar every time they asked for it, I would be even more broke than I already am. 

Meet Logan. He is my good friend and Chief Creative Advisor. He designed the FnF logo, so you know he's a genius. Like me, Logan recently got fired, but he's just as fabulous as ever. We've spent a few Fridays together recently, which is really nice because I hardly have any human contact at all during the day. I'm usually stuck in my little apartment, glued to my computer! Logan and I shopped around SoHo for Luke's birthday present. I took this pic of him in one of his favorite stores, Uniqlo. It's a great place to get quality basics at very affordable prices. If you're ever in NYC, I strongly recommend checking it out—last year I got two pairs of skinny jeans for $50! The next project Logan is helping me with is giving Luke's apartment a makeover. He has impeccable taste (just see for yourself at his blog: ), so I can't wait to see what he will do!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the pics! Have a great weekend—any fun plans in store??


  1. Hey Ellen! I can so relate. I got fired in June and have yet to find a job. I too spend WAY to much time in my apartment on the computer. Thanks for keeping me entertained!!!

  2. these pics are cool Ellen! :) the bunny should've been pink lol

    it's fun to get a feel of your side of the world ^_^ and i saw your friend, Logan's blog, he does have exquisite taste! I'm sure Luke's apartment would look G-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!

  3. I'm probably getting a black and red tie for my birthday. This is really taking the surprise out of it for me.

  4. Glad you like the pics, O! Luke, I hate to say it but the present that I actually got you is even less exciting than that black and red tie :(

  5. Hey Sara! Great to hear from you. I know, being cooped up all day isn't too much fun...I'd get a pet if I had room for one in my apartment!
