This book - I’m about five pages from finishing it. Solid read. Now, what’s next??
This new bathing suit - because I’m going to the Dominican Republic in three weeks. Which is exciting and also terrible.
An old fashioned – Because I really wanted one this week. So I got one. And it was delicious.
This jam - Because it was played in spinning class and I remembered just how freaking awesome it is. I may have had a few solo dance parties to it since. And by a few I mean eleven.
This pack of almond butter - Because I have a serious problem with nut butters and can’t have them around the house. I wish I were kidding bit I can (and have) finished an entire jar in a day. These cute lil’ things might have been made for me.

How do you feel about double dates? I happen to like them. It’s always nice to change up the dynamic and they’re especially interesting in the beginning stages. You get to see a whole other side of the person. See how they are in this new, unknown social setting. Good conversationalist? Easy going about group ordering? Making funny jokes? Good manners? Asking questions? Etc. It’s a gold mine of new information!
A couple weekends ago we went on on a double date. My friend and her boyfriend (who lives out of town) wanted to have Greek food. And this boy (the one that I’m kind of seeing) happens to live in the Greek food epicenter of New York City. So, I asked him to pick the restaurant, something delicious and amazing. No pressure. And those are fairly crucial details, aren’t they? The fact that it was my friend we were double dating with and that he had to pick the restaurant definitely took some of the pressure off of me… and put it right on him.But homeboy handled himself like a champ. And all four of us gorged ourselves on delicious greek food and had a fantastic time.
And after the date I got the official thumbs up he’s awesome text from my friend. Which was good because let’s be honest, that was kinda the entire point.
So my friends what do you think of double dates, yay or neigh?

I’m a big believer in apartment painting. It’s a hassle and it’s expensive and sometimes you have to paint the entire thing white again but I think it’s worth it. Color can totally transform a space and start to make it feel like your home. Let me clarify, I personally hate painting, but I’m a believer in paying someone to do the job for you. It’s worth it to pay somebody to do the job right. I know myself and if I do it I’ll get lazy and sloppy. Them’s the facts. I’ll be moving in two (!?) weeks and have already selected my colors. They may seem a bit familiar… because they’re quiiite similar to the colors I have in my current place. But if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right? So here they are. I was able to find photographic examples of all of my color selections because the internet is a magical, magical place where you can find anything.

“Prospect Heights is Brooklyn’s answer to Manhattan’s Museum Mile—this burgeoning neighborhood boasts the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanic Gardens, and the enormous central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Known as Park Slope’s pretention-less neighbor, Prospect Heights casually matches its counterpart when it comes to entertaining. The neighborhood is home to myriad restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutiques that evince a distinctly “come as you are” Brooklyn vibe.” (airbnb.com)
Big thank yous to all my Brooklyn experts who weighed in on their various ‘hoods. You best believe I’m having all of y’all over for treats and such at my new place just soon as I get settled. xo« go back — keep looking »
