Today is the first day of spring break, so I decided to do some spring cleaning. That’s what normal college kids do on spring break, right? This week I have absolutely nothing going on so I vow to shoot and post every single day. I vow it.
Anyway, these are just small things that I like. Afternoon light, lightweight cardigans, and matches, I guess. (Hint, I just thought they looked pretty)
Spring Break Forever, baby
Here’s a roundup of my favorite images of late, Pinterest has been inspiring me lately.
1. The Guggenheim, the one thing I missed whilst in New York
2. Miso tahini avocado toast with black sesame gomasio
3. Adidas Superstar sneeks, seriously coveting
4. Marianela Nuñez and Stéphane Bullion in Swan Lake rehearsal at Vienna State Ballet
5. What I wanted to look like with bangs (instead I looked the same as I did in 5th grade, just a foot and a half taller)
6. Santorini, Greece. Someone take me there ASAP, please.
7. Violet and lemon eclairs
In one of my school mandated jaunts to Pier 24, I decided to seize the day and enjoy this freakin beautiful San Francisco day. Also, Pier 24 is super cool and worth a trip, but keep in mind you have to make a reservation to go. After, head to the ferry building and enjoy all the yummy goods (Miette, anyone?). The sun, the breeze, the Blue Bottle coffee… Ah to be in California.
Summertime is now
This post is inspired by the Real New York. The kind of New York that makes you want to walk on slippery ice just to get a good shot, and then you consequently fall on your arm leaving you a disabled mess for days afterward. Not that this happened to me, just, you know, it could happen. Anyway, more NY tips! Lil and I hit up Monument Lane for brunch and OMG so good. The chicken and waffles is pictured below (I know I’m a bad vegetarian, but Lily is a worse vegan. Somehow this makes me feel better) but I really dug the Heritage Ham Hash. Like I still think about it it’s that good. Also, FIT has a little museum which is FREE so definitely take advantage of that. And the Embark Subway app = your new best friend. A must have, otherwise you end up staring at the Subway maps like a spaz.
Watch out for ice,
New York, baby! I took too many photos, and I didn’t want to overwhelm you, so this photo diary is coming in two parts. What I’m showing here is all the iconic, if not completely tourist run, side of New York: The Plaza, 30 Rock, Grand Central Station. Even St Patricks Cathedral (isn’t St Patty’s coming up? Least fave holiday, but beau-ti-ful church). The first two I would definitely recommend, regardless of the tourist label you may get from visiting. Grand Central, on the other hand, is something you can pass. It is supremely gorgeous, don’t get me wrong, but there’s not a lot to do except, you know, get on a train. Only go if you’re in the area.
Get ready for part two! Coming soon to theaters near you!
Holy Toledo, Batman! Has it really been almost a month since my last post? That’s my bad guys. But travel happened! Did I, the delicate little California flower, freeze? Yes, I did. But did I persevere and bravely face the 19 degree weather anyway? Why, yes, I most certainly did. Montreal is cool, guys! And I mean that in the figurative way and literal way. Loved Old Montreal the most (even though Olive & Gourmondo was closed). My heart just swells at horses on cobblestone streets, as cheesy as it may be.
