Summer Bucket List

It was a beautiful week to be a New Yorker. Major spring vibes in the city. On Tuesday I took clients on a sunset cruise on the Hudson. It was a little bit chilly but the views were so spectacular that nobody cared. Also, we were wearing wine coats. On Thursday the temps were  in the high 70s so a few co-workers and I slipped out of work early and grabbed spots at the bar on Eataly's rooftop. It was just re-done and has a fun beachey feel to it. It was the perfect night to be outside and on a roof.

On Friday I stayed in because it was pouring so Jess and I watched The First Monday in May. So good! I loved it and now I have to see this year's exhibit. Anna Wintour is so fascinating. I wish I could just watch a full documentary on solely her.

Saturday was another beautiful morning. I ran outside and it was glorious. Then we all took an Uber ($100 later - never again) into Brooklyn and had lunch and drinks at Brooklyn Crab. It's a really cool atmosphere complete with games, multiple bars, and a restaurant on the top floor. Rose and fries, cannot complain.

And now we have Sunday. Cat and I had brunch at Esperanto and I've just been laying around reading. Cooking this healthy meal tonight: zucchini pizza casserole. I'm all about zucchinis in everything, including brownies. Hope you have a good week ahead!

And here we have the last of my California pictures! The second day in Santa Monica was spent biking through SM and Venice, shopping on Main Street, and exploring Abbot Kinney Blvd. We had lunch outside at Rose. I am now obsessed with beet hummus thanks to this place. Seriously - beet hummus topped with whipped feta I could eat it everyday. For my main I ordered the "Killer Bee" pizza: complete with pickled chilies, honey, and pepperoni. Talk about winning combos. Honey on my pizza everyday from now on.

After lunch we explored Abbot Kinney and shopped around Venice. There are so many fun stores - both designer and vintage. Even the janky t-shirt shops won me over. You better believe I bought a 'Santa Monica' long-sleeve tee.

The sun seriously burnt me so by the end of Thursday I was ready for some draaaanks. We went to The Bungalow and hung outside until the sun set. Beautiful setting, beautiful people. The inside of The Bungalow is so cute, too. You feel like you're in an old library or someone's rustic living room. Such a good spot with some excellent tequila drinks.

Friends/fam who have yet to travel out West for fun, please do yourself a favor and book a trip. I'll happily join you. :)

Santa Monica Photo Diary (part 2)

I love you Santa Monica! LOVE!

All this rain last week had me thinking about moving to SM - but thank god the sun is back and New York is feeling warmer these days. So a lil Santa Monica recap for you. First of all I loved this California beach town. We stayed in an Airbnb "bungalow" rental that was walking distance to the beach. You sure get what you pay for on Airbnb! Our place was a little bit janky, but hey, it worked. As long as I could walk to Main Street and the beach I was happy.

The first night we met up with some of Tor's co-workers/industry friends and drove out to Malibu for dinner at Geoffrey's. We stopped at El Matador State Beach first and saw the most gorgeous views of Malibu and the ocean. Ughhhh love. Dinner was also amazing. The four of us sat outside under heat lamps and ate the most delicious meal. Even spotted Jeremy Piven. I must vacation in extremes when you consider this night in Malibu vs. the bungalow that I was staying at in SM! HA.

The next morning in Santa Monica we rented bike shares which is essentially just like CitiBike in NYC. Except this is so much better because you're on the beach and there's no concern about getting hit by a cabbie. We rode bikes for over 5 miles until stores and restaurants started to open. More photos from the rest of the week to come!
