    Sweets on Sunday: Popbar West Village

    This weekend was BUSY. Yesterday I was shooting all day and running around Brooklyn. The shoot was for another collaboration with Vince Camuto so be on the lookout for the photos in the coming month! If you didn't get a chance to see the first collaboration you can see still check it out on The Crest. Today was mostly spent running errands and doing laundry, fun fun. However, I did squeeze in a little time to… Read More »

    Camping & Cast Iron Cooking

    I've been living in the city now for several years and don't always get the opportunity to step away from the hustle and bustle. I did grow up in a small town near the beach and try to head down that way when I get the chance but even then I'm usually greeted with summer beach traffic. Growing up, my family would go camping all the time. I know, it doesn't sound all that glamorous but honestly… Read More »

    Morning Treats: Doughnuts from Jack’s Stir Brew

    You'll never see me passing up on treats, I have a huge sweet tooth. When most people go to Jack's Stir Brew, they usually go to pick up their morning cup of joe. For me, I went down to pick up some morning treats. I love the size of Jack's doughnuts. They're not massive where you feel sick after eating them and not so tiny that you feel you need to eat 10. The location by… Read More »

    NYC Bowery Hotel: Gemma Restaurant

    I was going through all of the photos on my computer last night and came across a folder containing photos from when I visited the Gemma restaurant at the Bowery Hotel, I had completely forgotten that I had even taken these! My parents were in town, it was when we first got Yogi, our Boston Terrier, and we had to find an outdoor restaurant that would allow him to sit with us. I've heard great things… Read More »
  • Lunch at Nelson Blue

    Lunch at Nelson Blue

    One of my favorite things about downtown NYC is taking trips to the Seaport. Before hurricane sandy, it was bustling with tons of restaurants and shops and sadly the impact was so strong that even though years have passed, some restaurants have yet to reopen their doors. However, a lot of positive change has come from it as well. During the summers they will bring in food trucks and have outdoor movies. There is even… Read More »

    What, Wear, When: Dumbo Sunsets and a Trip to Foragers

    Of all the years I've lived in the city, I haven't had much time to get over to Brooklyn to explore. However, my brother just moved there which has given me an excuse to take the train over. Needless to say, hanging out in Brooklyn might be my new addiction. So far I've been making my way through Dumbo and it seems that as if everywhere I turn, there is another cute place I am… Read More »
  • Summer Essential: The Donut Float

    Summer Essential: The Donut Float

    A few months back when I went to go visit my friend in D.C., we were walking around Georgetown and passed by an Urban Outfitters store. There in the window was this giant brightly colored raft in the shape of a donut. My eyes instantly lit up and dashed into the store to check it out. It was probably the coolest thing I've ever seen. Not only am I a treat lover but there is… Read More »

  • Saturday on Stone Street

    Saturday on Stone Street

    I love Saturday mornings. Even though it's not mandatory, I still tend to get up early on Saturdays. Whether I can blame that on the vast amount of light that pours into my windows at 6 am or if it's just the way I'm wired I'll never know. Either way I'm not complaining. The reason I love getting up early on Saturdays is because I can get all of the not so fun stuff out of… Read More »

    Picnic Series: Battery Park City

    I am so excited that the weather is getting warmer because there is nothing I love more than eating outdoors. Whether it's eating brunch outside at a restaurant or creating my own meal and heading over to a park, there is something about being in the fresh air that is just amazing. Last weekend my friend Christina from Minnie in Manhattan and I whipped up a hearty meal, grabbed my Nikon, and headed over to battery park.… Read More »
