A Week Into July (Already?!)

Is it just me, or is this summer blowing by far too quickly? I guess I can't complain too much; summer is hardly my favorite season, especially in the muggy, sticky streets of New York City. That said, I love any excuse to be outside - whether it be enjoying oysters outdoors at Miller's Tavern (they're $1!) to having friends over to drink wine on my roof or take that all too infrequent trip to the beach... But, really? It's already a week into July? I can't handle it! Life has been excessively busy - mostly with work and projects - but I'm fortunate to get to mix business and pleasure more than the average person. (P.S., if you're not yet decided on a career, I seriously, seriously urge you to choose what you love as your vocation).

The Verrazano Bridge; Fort Tilden Beach (Where I styled this cover story for the L Magazine)

One of the best things about summer = berries are in season! Berries for days!

The views from one of the suites at The Trump International... Columbus Circle is exceptional from above.

And what does one do at The Trump International...? Enjoy the lush interiors and snuggle up with Vogue Italia and Vogue Paris Collections with Bouchon macarons.

The Brooklyn Flea's Smorgasburg is one of the best things to happen to my neighborhood since I moved here. FACT. Red Hook Lobster Pound Connecticut Lobster Roll + People's Pops Rhubarb-Elderflower Popsicle = Quintessential Summer Eats.

Roof time + picnic blanket + friends +En Vogue, Sadé, and Aaliyah = perfect summer evening...

Miller's Tavern. One of my favorite spots this summer! Don't even ask me how many times I've been lately....

Breathtaking views on 4th of July, from my friends Christian & Brad's Independence Day Party at the Mondrian Soho.

4th of July Fireworks!

More Brooklyn loves.... Blue Bottle Coffee (serving some serious San Francisco nostalgia), and the current issues of Brooklyn Magazine and The L Magazine that I worked on recently!


  1. Amazing photos, it looks like you've been having an incredible time recently!

  2. i cannot believe how gorgeous your pics are! they are not only stunning they take my breath away! We almost stayed at the manderin, but we didn't! i have seen colombus circle from the ground but i am sure that from above it is completely different! what i love the most is that they represent summer, you can almost feel the heat!

  3. Love, love, love all of of this!!! Oh New York, you are calling my name!!

    B xx

  4. Seriously...your photos of NYC make me want to live there more and more.

  5. I am literally scrolling through this chanting "two weeks! two weeks!"

  6. I just discovered your blog today and I love it!  The funny thing is I live in San Francisco and your pictures make OH SO homesick and nostalgic for Brooklyn.  It's been five years since I left there and summer is when I miss it the most, even though the summer that I left was 100+ degrees every day as I packed.

    Ah, Brookland, I miss you so.

  7. Oh wow! The photos are amazing!!!! Makes me want to move to US even more <3 
    I love it, xo.


  8. My billionaire mentor has been telling me to have into agriculture
    for a few time paydayuk budgeting involves a lot more than just listing down the bucks
    which you haves allocate to settling your bills and also other financial collectors.


Thank you for reading! I love hearing from you.
