My best friend has been yelling at me to update after a weak month of only 4 posts. I haven’t been too busy during the month of April, more anxious than anything for the fun to start. Examples include: my sister’s junior formal, brother’s college graduation, concerts, my birthday, etc. To ease that void, I planned a mini girls’ trip to Atlantic City last weekend. I used to go with my family as a kid and beg to stay in the hotel room to play video games. The experience is totally different as an adult; even if you’re not a big gambler (slots for me), it is a fun place to relax and stuff your face.
Navy+mustard yellow color combo for my “I only play slots” outfit.
Filet from American Cut (at Revel), topped with bone marrow.
Boardwalk. I’m not a Knick’s fan but I love the players of the 90′s. John Starks is one of my favorite players. Plus, I always played as “3″ in sports.
Indoor fire pit at The Pier Shops.Chicken and waffles at The Continental.
When violent acts are committed in a public arena with the intent to harm a great mass of people, we are shaken. Our sense of security is shattered and our hearts are heavy for those whose safety and lives were claimed. I never turn to social media to express my feelings about events like these but I am very thankful that my loved ones in Boston and those who attended the Boston Marathon are nothing but safe. My boyfriend had work on Patriot’s Day and had he not, I know he would have rallied his friends to look on at the finish line. My heart breaks for those not as fortunate; I send nothing but my best wishes and condolences. I’m always shipping up to Boston and I know that the city will show its strength throughout this disaster.
You’d think that a week break from my blog would give me some time to compile images of my favorite outfits but apparently, all I’ve been snapping pictures of is food. Here’s what’s been making me happy lately. Have a great weekend.S’mores milkshake from Stand 4. Their toasted marshmallow flavor is my ultimate favorite.
My face + new Chloe sunglasses + elevated exposure + blemish remover.
Blackberry bellini from The Cottage.
Pinkberry comes to Chestnut Hill, MA (along with Shake Shack).
I couldn’t resist buying a foam finger. Nor could I resist poking my boyfriend in the butt as we walked to our seats (Hi, I’m 6 years old).
The Boston Celtics vs the Washington Wizards. Kevin Garnett did not profess his love for me, unfortunately.
After craving churros for a solid two weeks, I discovered that there was a shop near the office called El Churro.
I’ve been a member of Gilt Groupe for a few years and always lurked on their sales without making a purchase. They offer a great variety of designers/products but I always resisted, until last week. In soft pink, Chloé cat eye frames are unlike any other sunglasses I own (read – black). Plus, I’ve always wondered what it was like to see through rose colored glasses.
As I shamelessly admitted in my last post, I used to work at Abercrombie & Fitch. Obsessed with the store since LFO released “Summer Girls,” I thought I was pretty cool when I was offered the job (yikes) and thoroughly enjoyed the discount. Their clothing was appropriate for the time – I was a suburban teenager – but like everyone else in school, I fell into a rut of buying whatever the store offered. Personal style was all about the labels back then and as I grew older and drew inspiration from other sources, my closet reflected that as well. All that’s left of my A&F phase are a few tank tops, a silk skirt that I have only for sentimental value (how my parents let me leave the house in that is beyond me), and a denim jacket. I was thinking about cutting the sleeves off the jacket and utilizing it as a vest but who am I kidding – I am absolutely AWFUL at DIY. DIY would be the cheapest option for my case of denim vest lust but I’ve stumbled upon the ones below that won’t break the bank. The next course of action is deciding which one to get.
