Thorny Rose Bowl LA Event at The Spare Room

I know I’m definitely jaded but it’s pretty rare that an event actually wows me these days…but when I was invited to Thorny Rose’s bowling event at The Spare Room (e.g. inside my favorite hotel ever- The Roosevelt), I just KNEW that it would be FUN.  What I didn’t know is exactly how good Thorny Rose wine would actually taste.  I’m currently drinking the Sauvignon Blanc (seriously, drinking it right this second) and is really, REALLY good.

Kristen and I took photos and used the hash tag #ThornsUp so that they would print out instantly (SO cool), played Jenga with friends and took fun photos with the cute props they had on all the tables- SO fun and even better wine.


Brilliant Idea: RentTheRunway.com

Lately I’ve been saying the classic quote “why didn’t I think of that?” to myself a lot.  I think the old quarter life crisis has been rearing it’s ugly head since a few of my friends and family have been working on/contemplating grad school, coming up with amazing business ideas and generally just doing really innovative things with their life…which, of course, makes me feel like I need to come up with an equally, if not better, idea.

Enter RentTheRunway.com.  I was invited to an event at one of my favorites, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, so naturally, I was excited to attend.  What makes this such a “I went to Harvard Business school idea” (and yes, I’m coining this term) is that dude, dresses are expensive.  In a town like LA or NYC, you’re probably going to two or three events per week and how many times can you really wear that LBD?  This is a problem that I always have.  Texts go back and forth with friends that say “what are you wearing?  I hate everything that I own and everything that I don’t hate, I’ve worn in the last two weeks.”  The absolute WORST.  With Rent The Runway, you can literally rent dresses, accessories, and jewlery for any special event that you have…and I’m talking like NICE dresses too.  Sure, you might be giving up $100 bucks but you’re getting a designer dress so it’s especially awesome if you know there will be tons of photos happening.  I mean, celebs borrow their clothes so why shouldn’t you?
