Life Lately :: My Adventures Through Insta

Sunday, August 2, 2015

Happy August everyone! Can you believe how fast this summer is going by? I feel like the season has just begun and I am so not ready for it to end yet. Already feeling nostalgic about summer, I was inspired to share some of my photos from the past two months, documenting what I've been up to in NYC. Enjoy :)
I've never done an Instagram post before so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do something new while sharing a side of my life that isn't normally displayed on this blog. If you're not already, please follow me on Instagram here for even more photos and personal sneak peaks into my everyday musings. 
This was my first slice of NYC pizza after officially making the move in June. I have to be true to my roots, Chicago pizza is the best, but New York pizza is different and delicious in its own right. 
Typical Rockefeller Center lunch view. 
Classic 'waiting for the subway' pic. Get my watch here
New Yorkers take their brunch VERY seriously...and I'm more than okay with that! This was taken at The Cafeteria, a super trendy spot in Chelsea.  
After my
 first blowout experience with Dry Bar at the Midtown East location. I'm obsessed and already have my next appointment booked!
Summertime city vibes. 
One one of those days when I didn't want to leave my bed. 
...But then I did and it was great! Shop this amazing skirt here before it sells out. 
Shake Shack is legendary, and for good reason. Definitely a favorite spot of mine. 
I've been wearing my NYC Alex & Ani bangle religiously :)
Eating dinner the New York way - off of a delicious food truck! 
New shoes! 
Antonio and I celebrated the 4th of July at Coney Island and we had an absolute blast. 
A snapshot from my 4th of July inspired post. 
I'll never get tired of this view. 
Having a picnic at South Street Seaport
Living so close to the farmer's market is a real treat. I get to walk through gorgeous flowers on a regular basis. 
Another brunch outing. This time featuring pumpkin pancakes topped with cinnamon yogurt brought to you by Cafe Orlin
Working hard on my summer blog posts.
I finally have a home! Say hello to my NYC apartment. 
Pink lips are for summer.
