Joonbug Spotlights New Jewelry Line by Tara&Miemy!

Joonbug’s Aliza Olin and Claire Smith met up with 23-year-old Emily Gellis, one half of the jewelry design duo Tara & Miemy, to talk about her new line and future plans for the brand.

Joonbug: Where are you originally from?
Emily: Originally Great Neck, New York, but I’ve been living in NYC since college.

JB: Where did you attend college and what was your major?
E: I graduated from NYU in 2008 and majored in Communications with a specialization in Economics.

JB: How did you to get into the fashion industry?
E: I interned for a year at Intermix and was eventually promoted to Assistant Buyer of Ready–To-Wear Domestic Collections. It gave me a real insight to the industry and helped me develop my own eye for fashion.

JB: What made you decide to start your own company?
E: My friend Tara (also from Great Neck, NY) had started to design some jewelry so I’d been helping her out and it just seemed to take off from there. The name came from a trip to Miami with my family and Tara where they would tease me saying “Miami, My-emy”, like a play on words of my name. So, when we came to name our jewelry line, Tara & Miemy just stuck.

Commonly known as a sports bar, SideBar is changing the stereotypical sports bar vibe and replacing it with ambiance and style. One thing that won’t be changed though is the size of the crowd. With seven flat-screen TVs, two HD projection screens, a state of the art sound system, a dance floor, and two private rooms, this location tends to be a hot one seven nights a week. Party rooms are also available for those of you who wish to entertain in private and without the buzz of the crowd.

Wined and Dined: Summer Recession Eats and Vino Everywhere

With Summer Restaurant Week under way, there are a plethora of options for money savvy New Yorkers looking to be wined and dined at some of Manhattan’s finest; all while being able to save a few bucks on the side for those increasing subway fares. Aside from the list of bi-annual restaurant specials that we have come to appreciate, there’s a deal not found on the beaten path that is highly worth mentioning.

Lusso, one of Soho’s Italian cuisine newcomers, is currently offering $3 glasses of sangria every night weekly as well as 50% off all bottles of wine every Wednesday through the month of July (and hopefully continuing assuming it’s bringing in more bodies through the door). *Keep yourself posted on other deals the Italian eatery is offering via their Facebook page… last month they offered half off your tables entire tab!

Editor's Note: Questions answered in agreement together...

Deep House or Deep Throat?

Today was just like any other day in my life as a DJ. I woke up at 11:30 am, wrote about 15 emails, took a hot shower, slathered on some coconut scented lotion, threw on a simple black dress and combat type boots and headed off to meetings and to chase down money owed. Today specifically- I had a meeting at a super swanky club about my becoming a new resident DJ. Because I don’t like to disclose my business or their business with the general public, I will forego naming this spanking hot establishment and just refer to them as “the Lounge”. I am extremely excited and zip over there in a yellow cab. I feel like Lindsay Lohan with a bottle of spray tan- eager to make my mark!
