Winter Wandering

Standard

Last week, I had the opportunity to enjoy my last few morsels of vacation with some friends. Getting in a little culture with Bloo at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, wandering around on the east side with Kendra. It was nice to walk around the galleries and get lost on the East Side. It made me realize how busy I had been over the past few months and how much I missed this version of New York. I hope you enjoy the pics!

       

   
Happy Friday 😊

Labor Day

Standard

Labor Day was a blast! I went on a solo trip to Governor’s Island, where I rented a bike, took some pics, ate a delicious pulled pork sandwich at Little Eva’s and read a book in the sun. 

I headed back into Manhattan did some shopping and then hooked up with my girl Monet for wine, tiramisu and conversation. (Kareem was there too, but I forgot to snap his picture 😊)

Hot and Steamy Like Mississippi

Standard

Greetings, from heat-wave plagued Harlem! Man, it’s been a little like home these past few days. Even on hot days like these New York still has plenty to offer in terms of free, air-conditioned fun!

Last week, I found myself at both the Metropolitan Museum of Art (amazing Sargent exhibit), and the Studio Museum of Harlem (where the artists in residence had new exhibits up), drinking in the art of classical and contemporary artists alike.

Wandering down Museum Mile and 125th street, I stumbled upon Albertine, a French/English bookstore, and a sidewalk reminder that gave me the push I needed to finish a passion project I have been working on for a few months now.

Maybe it’s because I’m a June baby, maybe it’s because I love summer and heat (to a certain extent) but summer 2015 is pulling out all the stops and I am blissfully chugging along.

Ciao 🙂

St. Thomas Of Course (Part 2)

Standard

Here it is guys! The final post from my St. Thomas extravaganza!  Not gonna lie, flipping through these photos again, brought the memories right back, as I sit in my hot apartment here in Harlem. I can never fully explain how much fun I had in the Virgin Islands, but being able to celebrate my birthday with my closest friend, was the sweetest thing in the world. Hope you enjoy the pics from the Wing Festival, my birthday in St. John, ferry ride pics and a few more beach pics!

Ciao 🙂

St. Thomas, Need I Say More?

Gallery

Well, I’ve finally managed to clear some room from my media library to bring you part one of my St. Thomas vacation recap. I have decided to really come through the hundreds of pictures I took while away and present an edited photo collage of my adventures.

While it has been a month since my trip, I can still smell the water, hear the birds, and feel the salty ocean water on my skin. The only thing I miss more than the breathtaking views and the overwhelming aura of peace and relaxation is Cynthia.

I have to admit it’s pretty awesome to have a friend in this corner of the world. Yes, of course, I miss her, but getting to see her in her new home: thriving, happy, effervescent and carefree, was wonderful to see. My wanderlust has definitely been piqued and I am now thinking ahead to my next great adventure for 2016. I’m thinking Italy! But until then, here are photos from the first three days of my trip on St. Thomas proper. Enjoy 🙂

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday! While this photo was taken last summer in Duck, just know that my outfit is probably the same, but the sand is whiter and the ocean is greener! So happy to be celebrating my 26th birthday with Cynthia in the St.Thomas sun!

Home tomorrow, but until then I’m going to enjoy my last full day of paradise.

Ciao!!!
