Hot and Steamy Like Mississippi


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 🙂

Wandering Wednesday


This week’s Wandering Wednesday features photos from City Hall Park in the Financial District, meandering at dusk in the Flatiron District, the bridge from Brooklyn back into Manhattan and photos from the Charles James Exhibit now showing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Bonus: I accidentally stumbled upon a Banksy piece on the side of DSW on 79th and Broadway after drinks with my cousin Lauren, a few weeks ago.

Ciao 🙂

Cleared Mind, Clear Outlook


Last week was definitely an uphill climb for me in certain areas, but luckily that’s why new weeks exist, to make up for the bad or challenging ones. For a breath of fresh air, I decided to head over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to gain inspiration, focus, and clarity. Well, not to pat myself on the back but, it was an amazing decision on my part! Here are some of the pics I took wandering around one of my favorite places in New York.
