This weekend was pretty spectacular and not just because of the fireworks. If you follow me on Instagram you know on Sunday I finally got to see Phantom of the Opera on Broadway! When Jason and I first met in Florida he told me about going to see it when he was younger and how much he loved it. So in 2004 when the film came out I surprised him with tickets to see the movie. And now 11 years later I surprised him again with tickets to see the Broadway play at the iconic Majestic Theatre. It was a long-time coming, but I’m so glad we waited because now my daughter has become a Phantom fanatic - just like her daddy! And to see the look on their faces throughout the play just filled my heart with so much happiness.

There’s much to be said about a girl and her jeans. It’s a love affair that starts when you first put on the perfect pair. As time goes on your love deepens for denim. But like any relationship, jeans can leave you feeling frustrated, betrayed, let down, and less than flattering at times. You think that other articles of clothing will be able take their place. Until you realize, of course, that your closet would be a sad state of affairs without them. Sigh. Yes, jeans are complicated. But there’s nothing like finding the perfect pair that fits you and flatters you in all the right places. But having one pair of amazing-fitting jeans just isn’t good enough. There are five universally loved styles that every woman should own (regardless of size), and lucky for us, NYDJ carries them all!
