Odds and Ends

Bits1

{major DIY inspo at Calypso St. Barth – totally making a version of these!}

Life has been a little bit crazy over the past few weeks with travel + work + summer plans, so I thought I’d share a few photos of what I’ve been up to.  I finally got a chance to chill out this past weekend… clean our apartment, read some books (I finished The Dinner – have you read it?  A little weird, but an interesting read nonetheless) and see friends.  Oh and nap…  I spent a chunk of Saturday napping, and it was really, really nice!  It felt good to slow down for a bit.

{Last weekend I went to Boston… while the bf was busy filming, I had a fun girls’ day with two of my best friends from college.  I took this photo at Back Bay Social Club.  How pretty are these drinks!?)

{I’ve spent a lot of time at BaubleBar’s Soho pop-up shop.  We have events nearly every night… it’s been fun but exhausting!  This photo was from Cuyana’s set-up… such a cool brand… I’ll be telling you more about them tomorrow afternoon!}

{I could not be more proud of my pal Dallas and her recent Glossybox collab.  The products are great (especially this Tarte lipstick + these Oscar de la Renta fragrances), but the best part is really the artwork.  The box is currently on display in my bathroom, holding odds + ends.  And wait til you see her shoot – she got to play dress-up in Oscar – insane.}

{Friday night was dinner at Murray’s Cheese Bar with two of my close girlfriends.  I can’t even tell you how good it is.  We ended our meal by splitting the mac & cheese and it was SO incredibly awesome.  Sometimes it’s okay to splurge… this was worth the calories.}

{I was out and about on Sunday and passed the Pride Parade.  The city was a little bit crazy, but I loved the energy.  This week’s news about California left me so happy… and just in time for the city’s annual parade.}

{Picking up peonies… I bought four bundles and put them all over my apartment.  It really is the little things, like fresh flowers in every room, that make me the happiest.}

bits8

{I had to share this photo as this pitcher is my everything when it gets hot out.  I sliced up some cucumber + lemons and made the most refreshing infused water.  Everyone should have one, especially when it’s this miserable outside!  All you do is add fresh fruit once a week and keep refilling it throughout… it’s kind of the best.}

{Treats from my pal Sara.  I helped her out with a little market research and she sent over the most thoughtful care package.  Completely unnecessary, but of course very much appreciated!  NARS is one of my absolute favorite cosmetic brands, so I’ve been having fun playing with them all week.  I’m still not sure if I can pull of the green eyeliner… think I need a little bit more of a tan.}

    This Murray’s Cheese bar business just got pinned on my things to do in NYC board. It may be an after wedding NYC splurge when I’m in town. This and shake shack are on my list so far!
