Northern Lights Could Be Visible In NY This Weekend

How cool is this? My friend Joanna brought it to my attention that the Northern Lights may be visible in New York tomorrow!

From SILive:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) has issued a G2 (moderate) geomagnetic storm alert for Saturday.

The range and intensity of the northern lights, which are typically only visible in areas of high latitudes (like the North Pole), have increased this week because the sun set off an explosion.

The only catch is that we’ll have to move further from the city and light pollution if we’re even going to have a shot to view. Also, conditions will have to be clear.

Some tips from Newsweek:

Because the northern lights occur above the clouds, check the weather forecast in your area before going out. And head as far from the light pollution of cities as you can. Visibility can partly come down to chance—it’s easier to see the aurora during a new moon, as the shine of a full moon can render the aurora invisible. 

The Canadian Space Agency also recommends watching the aurora closely, as it can move and dance rapidly without warning. And cast your gaze in all directions, not just the Northern Hemisphere, to enjoy the full effect. 

Dog-Friendly Coffee Shop Opens In NYC’s East Village

While bodega cats have become an NYC staple, cat cafes have become increasingly popular too.  It was only a matter of time before NYC’s first ‘dog-friendly‘ coffee shop, Boris & Horton opened.  The storefront opened its doors in the East Village on Friday and isn’t exactly selling themselves as the equivalent of a cat cafe, as no dogs will actually live on site.  However, furry kids are welcome to join their pet parents for a snack and to browse their swag.


Dog owners and enthusiasts are invited to check out their beverages and all-vegetarian menu (with vegan options!)  They even have snacks for pups too… but of course. How cute is this?

Oh, and it gets better:



Soon we’ll be able to hang out with cute puppies and enjoy a glass of wine.  This place sounds like heaven!  Will you be visiting Boris & Horton?  Hit me up on Instagram @wendywildradio and let me know.  Have a great weekend!



Katy Perry’s New Blonde Pixie Cut Is 💯!!

I’ve been lusting after Katy Perry‘s blonde and just today she’s trending after chopping it all off in this fierce blonde pixie cut.  The bold cut SO works on her and I think it might be one of her best looks yet.

So many Twitter users are comparing her hair makeover to Miley Cyrus‘ and Michelle Williams‘ current style, but I think she makes this work for her own personal style.



If you recall yesterday we made mention that Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom released a joint statement announcing their split.  The timing on her new look is not surprising.

What do you think of her new ‘do?


This Little Girl Is Totally ME — Every Damn Day!

Preschool dance recitals are always cute, but this one really takes the cake for most entertaining.  Keep your eye on the girl in the middle of the screen.  At first she keeps up with the rest of girls… then, barely able to contain her excitement (or able to remember the routine?) she starts freestyling!

Slay girl!

I love everything about it… dance to your own tune, right?

Catching Up With Flight Time & Zeus Of The Harlem Globetrotters

Only a few people really know how I developed a relationship with The Harlem Globetrotters, making their visit each year one of the most anticipated ones for me.

About 5 years ago, my friend, Cubby, from Cubby and Carolina in the Morning was asked to participate and actually PLAY during a Globetrotter game at Madison Square Garden.  The bit was that he would get to practice and play with the opposing team.

When he asked me to come to support him, I thought to my myself: “Heck, I am not missing this for the world!”

Little did I know, there was a surprise in store for me too.

That day I met their super-publicist (seriously, Eric is THE BEST). After Cubby introduced us he asked if I had ever sat court-side at Madison Square Garden. (I hadn’t, duh.)

Right then he offered to upgrade my seats: Score! Now I would get to see Cubby from real close up and wouldn’t miss any of the action.

Spoiler alert: I didn’t miss any of the action, in fact I became part of it:

Whoa, flash back to the past. Look at my hair… haha! Anyway – that was day one of a life-long friendship with my Globies! These guys are the greatest.

If you’ve never been to a game, it’s much more than that… The Harlem Globetrotters are pure entertainment and lucky for us they’re playing a few area shows!

Tonight (Friday) at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ

Sunday evening and Monday (President’s Day) at Madison Square Garden

Now You Can SMELL Like A ‘Nasty Woman’ Thanks to The Donald & BPAL

I’ve been a fan of niche perfumery for years and have HEARD of Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs for quite some time… I’m surprised it took this to get me to try it.  Hehe:

Donald Trump’s ” nasty woman” comment was one of the most memorable moments of the third presidential debate, inspiring people to stream Janet Jackson’s “Nasty” in droves, create parody websites, and generally meme the heck out of that phrase.

And now, you can smell like a Nasty Woman as well.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, a company that makes limited edition perfumes inspired by cult movies and books like Sherlock Holmes, just announced a Nasty Woman perfume. Its scent is a combination of “black fig and patchouli, filthy bourbon vanilla, honeyed amber oud, and loukhoum.”  Sounds delish!

Retailing at $24, the Nasty Woman perfume will split its proceeds between Planned Parenthood and the pro-choice campaign organization Emily’s List.

Once I get mine I’ll report back.



‘Cat Eye Stamps’ Are A Thing And I MUST Own One

Here’s my getting ready routine:

SNOOZE: 14 times.  Shower: 10 minutes. Winged eyeliner: 20 30+min. Not kidding.  Some days can be quick, others my hand is shaky and the need for Q-Tips is high.  I just caught a glimpse of this new product which is ‘coming soon.’ and I can’t wait to get my paws on it.

Is this a magic trick?

I Swapped My Perfume With Kristen Bell’s Fragrance Oil!

Hippie chic indeed!

Those of you who know me know that I have a slight obsession with all things that smell good.  Candles, soaps, essential oils, perfume.  I subscribe to both Scentbird & Olfactif and have been on the hunt for my ‘signature scent’ since junior high.  Anyway, while watching the Emmys red carpet on E!, I couldn’t believe my ears when Kristen Bell revealed that her Emmys perfume was a $4 bottle of Amber Oil she purchased from Whole Foods.


Ok, so I wasn’t the only one here but what happened next literally knocked my socks off.

Nemat Fragrance Amber Oil

Nemat Amber Oil Fragrance

It finally arrived and I couldn’t be more excited.  As I open up the bottle to give a sniff, beyond curious what made Guiliana Rancic so delighted… I quickly became puzzled when I couldn’t smell a thing.  Nothing.  Put it on my wrists… still nothing.  Intern George was actually over my house and laughed at me… he said ‘That’s what you get when you order things online.’

Yeah… I’m a sucker.  But at least I only wasted a few bucks.  It wasn’t expensive.  But wait.  I’m not sure what possessed me to wear it to work, but all of a sudden a few co-workers commented on the lovely smell.

I had to ask them to describe it… I got ‘flowery’, ‘cucumbery’ ‘woody’.  What the …?!

So now the fun began, I polled everyone who came into the studio.  ‘Can you smell this?’ 50% said yes and it was lovely (Colleen claimed it made the entire studio smell nice.)… the other 50% like me said there was absolutely nothing there.

The condition is called SPECIFIC ANOSMIA: the inability to perceive a particular odor or a lack of functioning olfaction.  Good news though…


UPDATE: Since I got SO many compliments I tried a few of the other scents in the Nemat line… (why not? They’re SO affordable!)  Fell in love with both Sandalwood & Musk Amber — both of which I CAN smell.  🙂
