Happy Thanksgiving Socialites! Right now I’m so thankful that I finally have time to blog again after the crazy busy two weeks I’ve had. Ever since I was born, I’ve spent every Thanksgiving in New Hampshire with my Dad’s side of the family and this year was no different. Wednesday evening I left NYC on a bus headed for Boston to visit my wonderful family for the Thanksgiving holiday. Though I’ve spent my life constantly aspiring to something greater, I never forget to be grateful for all the blessings life has given me. I’m so thankful for my family, friends, followers, and fans. I feel lucky each day to have a life filled with good health and good company. I may aspire to fame and fortune, but when you have health and friends, you have everything. Many thanks to everyone who has read and supported this blog. Your make me feel more like a socialite everyday!
No turkey for me! I’m a vegetarian and half my family is gluten-free. Thankfully, we can all drink wine.
Love my cousins! Though we’ve always lived far away, we’ve always been super close!

I’m having a great time getting away from New York for a bit and visiting with friends and family over the holidays. I traveled to Delaware to see my mom then to Boston to see my Dad then back to Delaware. Here are some of the highlights of my week off so far:
Gifts fit for a queen (looks like Santa was reading my blog this year)
Plane rides with my sister
Coffee in old china

Like any great Aspiring Socialite in New York, I have a “Bad Romance” kind of relationship with Barneys New York. I love that store, but it often kills my credit card statement to the point where I have to call home crying. Today, I had the best time at Gaga’s Workshop, a section of the store set up for the season that’s basically like entering the mind of Lady Gaga. The setup is based on her many elaborate costumes and album highlights.
I was like a kid in a candy store running around taking pictures, hugging the little monsters, pretending to sip tea from the tea cups, and enjoying all the bright colors. Both holiday songs and Lady Gaga hits blasted as everyone took in this unique experience of holiday joy. The best part is that Barneys will be donating 25% of the Gaga’s Workshop proceeds to the Born This Way Foundation. Can this workshop stay at Barneys forever? It’s a great place to go whenever you need a Gaga fix or to lift your spirits. However, I have to warn you. Being Lady Gaga is very expensive.
My Little Monsters!
