I know I've become a horrible blogger but I do have some posts from the past month that I'll get around to, hopefully soon. However, for now, check out this link for a little Photoshoot session we did with long time friend and AMAZING photographer, Milla. If you need photos taken, use Milla!! You'll be happy you did.

Summer in the City, Part 3

Since it's almost the weekend yet again! let's finish up last weekend's food jaunts around the city. This one landed us over in the East Village at a well-known brunch spot, Peels. I had been wanting to try this place out for at least a year and never made it over there, that is until Sunday. My year of waiting and reading reviews was worth it. We met up with some friends and snagged a table outside on the sidewalk. They're known for their bakery and biscuits. And even though the biscuits are not southern style biscuits they are still quite large and buttery! The rest of the food was done just right and had incredible flavor, even my egg whites.  But since we were all enjoying each other's company and the weather we decided to head over the another place I'd been wanting to try for a year. The Doughnut Plant!  Our brunch needed a little dessert. And sweet we got. Nothing to say on this one besides, "go have a doughnut." After all that we thought we better walk home. Whew!

Summer in the City, Part 2

So I gave the teaser yesterday which means I have to follow through with some pictures and details. After beginning the weekend off with Friday night at Cafe Condesa we then moved onto Saturday evening in the park. We met up with some friends in Central Park and took over a little plot outside of the Summerstage where Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Calliat were playing in concert, together! If you're wondering why we didn't buy tickets and go inside the open-air venue then let me explain. 1. We would have had to pay 2. We wouldn't have been able to move freely 3. We couldn't have had our homemade guacamole, cookies, drinks, etc 4. We wouldn't have been able to throw some balls around. So therefore, we had the ideal spot! After the concert ended we walked through the park and over to the Hudson river for more NYC fun on the water. We ate lobster rolls and drank beer outside while the sun went down at Pier Cafe. The lobster rolls were delicious with just a little mayo - more lobster = perfect. There was also a saxophonist playing which made the atmosphere that much more enjoyable. I'm not sure if he's there often but even if he's not then I would still suggest you go try it out!

Summer in the City

It looks like Summer is finally here to stay! It's been said that NYC is a very bi-polar city. I must agree. During the winter people are dying to escape BUT come Summer everyone realizes just how glorious the city is and doesn't want to leave. (Unless it's to the Hamptons, which is really just NYC at the beach) I am one of these NYC bi-polar people. I love the city in the Summer! This weekend confirmed my love once again.

It was friend and food-filled. What more do you want during these months? Except for maybe nice weather but we had that as well! So this week I'm blogging about all the different places we went to this past weekend. Get ready because it's all about food. And good food at that. However, this first post is just an introduction. Haha

But if you're needing something to fill your food desires then check out where we went on a date Friday night up in the West Village... Cafe Condesa. It's a tiny little place and oh so tasty!

Check out how tall the world trade center is getting!!!
