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! Don't worry, you're not nuts, it's not actually Thursday anymore but I have been so freakin' busy this week I just couldn't get my Throwback Thursday post up yesterday! I guess this is actually a Flashback Friday post, but I didn't have time to put together a new logo so this'll have to do. It's just one of those weeks, I've been a day late and a dollar short all over the place.
Anyway I wanted to make sure to get this post up because it's relevant to something that happened this week. Take a look:
I was inspired to share this because of Tuesday's election, of course. This was my one foray into politics, back in high school. I had an uncle who owned an ice cream shop so my offer wasn't just an empty campaign promise. I said I was running on the "Free Ice Cream" platform, everyone loved it. I actually won believe it or not, and the Friday after my victory my uncle brought in enough ice cream to feed the whole school. If only all politicians fulfilled their promises as clearly as I did - hahahahaha! Have a great weekend everyone, see y'all next week!
Hey Everyone, I don't know where you're reading from but chances are it is hot! Here in New York City we're melting like a stick of butter in a hot skillet. Today I wanted to do a video blog for you all and talk about what's been going on in my life, but as you'll see I found it difficult to function in the heat. Watch below to see what happened:
I stayed in that freezer for 20 minutes and let me tell you, it felt amazing! I'm lucky that I fit in there, but I know that most of my readers probably aren't so lucky so here's a little slide show for you of things that'll help you think cool thoughts. Enjoy!
