Hey Guys! I hope everyone had a nice long weekend. It was sunny and warm here in NYC yesterday, and for the first time after this long winter and cold spring I felt like summer just might be on its way. That made me happy because I am a summer-lovin' gal for sure! Here are a few of my favorite summer activities:
Mmmmm, ice cream, I love eating ice cream! I don't know how to decide which one I want though, guess I'll have to eat them all!
Amusement parks! I LOVE amusement parks, especially roller coasters. I've been on the Cyclone down in Coney Island about 87 times (roughly) and I can't wait to go again this summer! I don't recommend doing these first two summer activities in order though, you should probably wait until after the Cyclone to consume 6 ice cream cones. And speaking of consuming a lot of food, you should stay away from Coney Island on July 4th if you're squemish, that's the day they hold the hot dog eating contest. The guy that won last year ate 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes - gross!
Camping! That's me on the left (duh!) poking my head out of the tent during a camping adventure last year. I may be a city girl now but I love getting out into nature and getting back in touch with my earthy side, which is what I was doing in the photo on the right. That's a pretty advanced yoga move I'm doing though, so don't try this at home kids!
Fresh fruit salads and smoothies - I practically exist on these when the weather's hot and I don't feel like eating anything else. And nothing wrong with spiking your smoothie with a little rum or tequila at night, (or during the day - hahaha!) it's still got the nutrients from the fresh fruit and will help you get the party started!
Outdoor movies! I love movies, I love the outdoors, combining the two is a no-brainer! My local outdoor movie location is in Brooklyn Bridge Park and of all the outdoor movies in the country I think we might have the most spectacular view, wouldn't you agree?
And finally, my very favorite thing about summer is that you can go to the beach! I love the beach! All winter long I fantasize about burying myself in the sand, frolicking in the water, having Aziz Ansari rub suntan lotion all over my body........................................ Wait what? What happened? So sorry, I must have trailed of there for a minute. Anyway, to summarize - beach: good, Aziz Ansari: good, Aziz Ansari with me at the beach: Best Thing Ever! Happy beginning of summer everyone & I'll catch y'all later!
Just one more photo, I couldn't mention "My Man" without showing a photo of him. There are still no photos of Aziz shirtless, unfortunately, but he's looking pretty summery here.
Hey Everyone! I'm back from my weekend camping adventure in the Catskills and I feel completely refreshed and recharged and ready to tackle whatever comes my way! I don't think I have mentioned this before, but I am an avid Yogi and one of my favorite moments of the trip was when I was able to take some time for myself and practice yoga in the woods. I was so into my meditation that I didn't even know that Junes snapped these photos until later!
For anyone who has never practiced yoga I highly recommend taking a class or trying some moves at home. I know the poses I'm doing may look complicated, but there are plenty of ways to incorporate yoga into your day without too much of a time commitment. In fact, this gives me an idea: I'm going to do a blog post about yoga! Look for that in the next couple weeks, and in the mean time don't try these at home, I'm an extremely flexible mule and I wouldn't want anyone to hurt themselves! Have a Happy Tuesday!
