Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day // Shakespeare

September 24, 2017

Who doesn’t love summer? Summer is (no surprise) my favourite season of the year. It’s delightful, the warmth and lightness banishing the cold and darkness, everything is better over the summer(well, most things). It’s no wonder William Shakespeare compared youth and beauty to a beautiful summer’s day. In youth, like summer, the possibilities are endless. And for me, this summer  was the best one yet.  I feel very grateful and blessed to have my love alongside me to sake my…

US OPEN// Un Souvenir D’enfance

August 31, 2017

So this Monday August 28th, 2017 was the opening day  for  the US Open, and  I was able to catch the opening day game  with two good friends of mine. The  match  was between Maria Sharapova (RUSSIA) and Simona Halep (ROMANIA). It was my first time ever watching a game live and all my childhood memories came rushing back. Tennis and football (soccer) are very dear to my heart because I grew up watching tennis championships and soccer games with…

The Adirondack Retreat

July 3, 2017

New York’s concrete jungle can get hot and sweltering as summer settles in. And with the overwhelming amount of events and things to do, I thought a quick getaway to an Adirondack retreat would do a soul good. So I hopped on the Amtrak and headed up for 2.5 HRS on the train to North Creek, a small town within the Adirondack National Park just a few miles north of Lake George for some “RnR”. And yes, it helps having friends with a rustic log cabin…

When Summer Comes to Town

May 2, 2017

In NYC you know it’s almost summer when your street block is closed for some good ol’ food truck festival, the ice cream trucks are in the streets, the weekend farmers market and the roof top bars open up and stylish runners hit the road. In this city that never sleeps we are constantly hustling and bustling but events like these really help us slow down and enjoy that overpriced hotdog and maybe run into your next-door neighbours you didn’t…

Central Park Sundays

April 11, 2017

Another perfect spring Sunday and we decided to go to Central Park and soak in some rays and in my case flaunt that melanin. Being the last minute planners that we are, obvs couldn’t get any brunch reservation for restaurants by the park so we improvised and grabbed “to go” lunches from Whole Foods nearby. Crisp breeze, chirping birds, kids running around, lovers in rowboats and sun rays penetrating through the tree canopy make for a perfect urban getaway for…
