It's the beginning of summer, so I'm slowly crawling out of my comfort zone and starting to do a lot more venturing out into NYC. This city has SO MUCH to offer. I feel like there's always something going on, and I know I can't possibly do it all. But...I'm going to have fun trying!
I don't know if it's because the weather was so bad during Memorial Day Weekend, but the weekend after Memorial Day was poppin. The weather was warm, and everyone was outside doing something. My girl Brittany came up to NYC for the weekend, so we hit up the Brooklyn Classic, which is where I ended up shooting my first Au Natural street style photo! The next day we had brunch for like four hours at Harlem Tavern and then tried to get into the Everyday People Brunch with no luck. I had fun being out in my "sexy back" dress anyway.
Last weekend (not this past weekend, but the one before that), Q and I had some "us time" at this huge BBQ at Madison Square Park. I don't usually eat pork, but I had the best baby back ribs. Pepperoni and ribs are my two pork allowances.
I had the pleasure of attending a really great networking event and panel at the Bauble Bar pop-up location in SoHo. I loved being surrounded by so much jewelry! And we got to sip on Godiva's new chocolate liqueur. I had the white chocolate flavor on the rocks. It didn't need anything else! The weather absolutely sucked that night; I remember my curly fro damn near exploded due to the humidity, so I had to pin it up for work the rest of the week.
I was sick for most of this past weekend, which was so unfortunate because we had two good weather days! But I did take a trip out to Harlem Shake. I love burgers, so I was prepared to be very critical, but I didn't have to be. It's a great little burger shop, totally retro, and the burgers were so good! I ate mine so fast, and I was mad it was finished =P
