long weekend

June 26, 2014

i'm off to my second favorite city today for a nice, long weekend! i can't wait to catch up with friends, go to the beach, have some yummy cocktails, visit all of my favorite spots and of course, get my hair done (!). see you soon, charleston!

the wren

June 25, 2014

the wren is a charming little bar on the bowery, and fun too!

we started with cocktails (they have some of the best cocktails!), and of course we all got the same thing … the 7th.

their menu is short and sweet.

we attempted to be healthy and get salads, which were both really good...

and then we saw the fries with the malt vinegar mayo (tdf - these are a must!) and it was game over.

and the soft shell crab sandwich - if you like soft shell crab, this is also a must try.  it tasted as close to the eastern shore as it could from nyc :)


your tea

June 23, 2014

guess whaaat? i'm onto another health fad. surprise, surprise :) i had heard so much hype about your tea that i finally had to try it.  i ordered my first box of the tiny tea teatox, and started last week.  so far, i think its great.  i am one of those people that wakes up and cannot start my day until i've had coffee, so i was a little skeptical about how i would feel with tea instead. the first day with no coffee was not easy, but the good news is that i was not lacking energy. i actually felt plenty energized and t-m-i, but it definitely flushes you out so you feel so refreshed!  so far, i have just been eating healthy in combination with the tea (minus the magnolia's cupcake i had this weekend), but i also just got a nutribullet so i can't wait to start juicing with it! 

extra perk - how cute is their packaging?

a sweet little soiree

June 20, 2014

we like to throw parties at my office.  it should be in everyone's job descriptions, "must like to drink champagne and dance on table tops". really, it happens at least once a week.  here is a little party i threw this week.

mini doughnuts: the dougnuttery
pretzels & dips: sigmunds
personalized confetti: the confetti bar
glitter flags: pelemele etsy shop

cheers to the weekend!

one day closer to friday

June 18, 2014

i'm having one of those weeks where time is flying by, yet friday can't get here fast enough.  know the feeling?  there just aren't enough hours in the day ever sometimes. i can't wait to get home to the beach and my family and just relax this weekend!
