Beach Club Crew

July 28, 2014
O’Neill swim top
Forever 21 swim bottoms
I’m quite strapped for time as I finish up moving to my new apartment in Brooklyn, so I’ll let the photos do the talking this time around. A throwback to a few weeks back at a beach club in Connecticut. Living it up waspy east coast style for a weekend was pretty nice. These people have it good, let me tell you. Being around our friend’s kids was quite refreshing. I had to capture every moment. 
I can’t believe its nearly August. Summer still feels like it JUST began for me. Not an end in sight. Best east coast summer so far, I have to admit. Wouldn’t change a thang. Here’s to endless summers and being kids at heart forever. xo
P.S.
Totally behind on posts, I know. So much has happened since these pictures were taken. Look forward to more updates on here soon! Trying my best to catch up amongst the craziness.

Pool Party

July 25, 2014
L*Space one-piece swimsuit (SHOP SIMILAR HERE)
Blackswan crochet shorts (SHOP HERE)
There ain’t nothing like a nice long dip in the pool on a hot summer day in the burbs. This one-piece from L*Space might have given me the funkiest tan lines, but I’m totally okay about it. I love how much it reminds me of a ballerina’s leotard. Brings me back to my dance team days as a kid. My friend Kiara’s cousin’s house made for the perfect suburban weekend getaway. Big backyard, something always grilling on the BBQ, a dog to always cuddle with, good conversation with good people, and an endless supply of beers to sip on while you float in the pool. Now this is why I love AMUUUURICA. 
As work has become busier and busier for me these past few weeks, these sort of weekends are what I try to indulge in the most. To keep my mind sane and regularly refreshed. It’s easy to get burnt out in the city, even as a freelancer who sometimes gets to work out of the comfort of her own bed. The daily grind finds us everywhere we may be. I’m officially moving to my new apartment next week, my parents will be back in town and more projects are piling up. All while constantly coming up with new things to add to the blog. All good things, but for me all good things usually means no sleep and too much coffee. But I’m loving every second of it and just taking it as it comes. 
So now, when’s my next day at the pool going to be?

Beach Bums

July 17, 2014
L*Space bikini
Currently packing for my trip to Miami on Friday for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami with the brand 6 Shore Road. So I thought these pictures snapped from a random midweek beach trip to the Rockaways with Natalie and Kiara were suitable.  It was windy as heck, and we kept getting sand in our mouths and other funny places, but it was well worth it. And two words. ROCKAWAY TACO. Mmmmmmmm. I’m so happy that this summer has been full of indulgent beachy getaways whenever I’ve had the chance . . . far much more this summer than last. I don’t think I’ll ever truly get sick of it.

Local Eats | House of Small Wonder

June 24, 2014

Brooklyn is probably one of my favorite places to go out and get some delicious food, and I’m not just saying that because I live in Brooklyn (Williamsburg to be exact). But there really is an amazingly widespread selection of super cute restaurants and coffee shops that I’ve discovered in the past year of me being a Brooklynite. House of Small Wonder is one of these fab discoveries. This small and charming coffee shop/sit-down eatery makes you feel like you are literally sitting in a tree house. The window panels on the ceilings let a bunch of natural light in, and there is a tree growing straight through the middle of the restaurant. Inspired by European cafes, but with a very zen, Japanese style influence thrown into the mix, House of Small Wonder makes for quite the unique lunch/late lunch experience. I say lunch because it closes at 7pm on weekdays and 5pm on weekends. The menu is quite extraordinary, as well. Every dish is an interesting fusion of all sorts of cultures. Everything I’ve tried so far has been out of this world divine tasting. The Grilled Chicken Sandwich Plate is one of my favorite dishes (see above). The chicken literally melts in your mouth, and the bread is slathered in the one of the most savory mayo spreads I’ve ever tried. A side of tomato salad is a refresher in between ever bite, which is basically heaven. Trust me.
