HELLO, HAMPTONS

I had never seen so many Louis Vuitton carry-on bags in my life. It was drizzling on 40th and Lex and yet everyone {myself included} was dressed for the beach. I looked around as I noticed the strands of my hair expanding with every minute that passes. The damn humidity.

HATS OFF TO YOU, HUMPHREY

Guys, I’ve been doing it all wrong.

And I feel comfortable admitting that whole-heartedly.

Since arriving in New York, most weekends I tend to stay within the walls of the concrete jungle. And each weekend that I do stay in the city, I tend to find myself on an uptown subway into Manhattan.

A DAY IN NEW YORK FOR UNDER $20

New York City is known for being one of the most expensive cities in the world. I can absolutely attest to this and constantly feel as though I am throwing my money away with each passing day. Like, I might as well just take a wad of cash and distribute it in individual one-dollar bills like they used to do in music videos {yeah, remember those things?}.  As a budgeter, and traveler, this is one of the most uncomfortable feelings and something I am doing my best to avoid.

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME

I have been a baseball fan since birth. I mean, it wasn’t the cliché tale of my father putting an infant sized baseball cap on my head the moment I left the womb, but you get it. Growing up, my parents introduced me to my first true love: the San Francisco Giants. I would literally race home, turn on the television, and watch the afternoon game after school. On the reg.

24 HOURS IN TRIBECA

I’ve recently found myself in the triangle below canal street, also know as TriBeCa, over the last few weekends. There are certain neighborhoods that I am drawn to in any city. In London, you could find me in Notting Hill on any given day. In San Francisco, I would sip champagne in the Marina District on a Sunday afternoon. And in New York, it’s been a toss up between TriBeCa and Chelsea. Both neighborhoods contain so much hidden charm within the concrete walls of the city. Both also cost an arm and a leg. It’s obvious that I am not alone in my love for these areas of the city, as you will find locals swarming the best eateries and cafes each weekend.

APRIL SHOWERS

We all have those days. The ones that knock you down. Or leave you feeling like the last crispy french fry in a McDonald’s brown paper bag that we all tend to eat around. Well, today was one of those days for yours truly.

Nothing seemed to go right. And everything inevitable went wrong.

NOTABLE NORMALCIES // 4.24.2017

Well hey there, it’s been a quick minute.

It’s been another extremely busy couple of weeks here in the big apple. Live music, happy hours with coworkers, botanic gardens, birthday celebrations, the Harlem Dance Company, and obviously BRUNCH. These are all things that have been consuming me over the last couple of weeks. New York ceases to amaze me with the constant {and I mean constant} opportunities that I find myself involved in.
