Finally rockin’ my new #Patagonia #fish #camo #hat today! I love this #brand, but it’s also commemorative of my trip to #Argentina in 2013. Check out the black in the #trout #logo. That’s #FitzRoy—and I hiked it!!! :) #travel #hiking #adventure #yolo #memory #hatday

MetroCard with Ad SpaceThis article caught my eye—and truthfully, I have mixed feelings about M.T.A.’s decision. While I do think from a marketing perspective the ad space is quite valuable (and visible), I’ll be sad to say goodbye to the iconic yellow and blue card and M.T.A. logo. I’m not an avid subway rider by any means, but when I do need my card, I know to grab the golden yellow. Ask any local or commuter, and they’ll tell you the same. It’s brand recognition at its finest. We know the card—it’s looked that way since 1997 (The New York Times).

I’ve finally come to understand the basics of NY subway navigation. But those turnstiles still get me every so quite often. I swipe too fast, or I’m $.25 cents short when I think I have enough on my card from my last ride; they sass me to keep swiping at the same entry point or threaten that I’ll lose my money. (Scandal).

Let’s just hope MoMA doesn’t put Starry Nights on the card—for the city’s sake (and sanity). Black stripe aside, surely those tricky turnstiles don’t accept Visas!

MTA Turnstile

Well, @brookeariel and I’s taste test confirmed that #JIF is in fact better than #Skippy #peanutbutter. JIF has molasses, making it sweeter and creamier; Skippy is dry! @jenvlock, you were right! Good call. Now I know why smart moms choose it. I’m a JIF brand convert and I’m never goin’ back! (Taken with instagram)
