I’m letting my inner nerd show because…….winter is coming!!!!!!

This bad boy has been sitting in my fridge for a while now waiting for my favorite nerdy guilty pleasure to be back on. Last night it returned and was a perfect way to end my weekend. A low key night in relaxing with Game of Thrones on TV and in my pint! 

Such a smart idea from the guys at Ommegang brewery to release these limited edition brews. 

You know nothing Jon Snow……swoon.

Sunshine, sandy feet and salty sea hair can’t come fast enough for me right now………. But, I will miss how beautiful the beach is in the winter. Being on an empty beach on a crisp, sunny winter day is something magical. And a great “test subject” for playing around with my new camera. 

Here are a few picture from my “happy place”. New Suffolk Beach, North Fork, Long Island. 

I have a weird relationship with scents. I tend to be super, super picky when it comes to ones I like. Some are too strong, some are too “trashy”, some remind me of something else way too much. 
Like most things in my life, I over-think smells. 
So when this totally cute looking body scrub from PINK caught my eye I thought it would be another one of those products that I want to like so much but the smell is a put off for me. Boy was I pleasantly wrong. I can’t get enough of this light, summery scrub. perfectly named, Party in Paradise!!!  With it’s hint of exotic orchid and sun-kissed vanilla it makes me happy and bright and brings a beachy look to my shower. It’s my new favorite way to start my day.  High-res

I’m having a major case of the mondays. Getting up was super hard this am. I think I hit snooze like 5 times and I don’t even feel bad about that. 
But time to snap out of it……. monday morning excuses are over! 
It’s pay day!!!
It’s one day closer to the weekend!!!
And it’s time to get going on a productive week so I can “play” all weekend long and start this cycle over again!!!

I have been totally in to fruit infused water lately. So much so that I ordered a big beverage dispenser and a few cute pitchers from Target to hold all my tasty hydration. 
My current favorite is strawberry, lemon and mint…..and as an added bonus, it’s a great fat flusher!!!
Win. Win. 
Just cut up about 8 large strawberries, a lemon and a sprig of fresh mint. Drop in a pitcher of water, let sit for a bit and drink up.  High-res

One of the great joys of living in a city like New York is the randomness of every day. The little things that catch your eye on a other wise normal rush hour can be day changers. 
Last week I spotted this amazing piece on Mulberry Street. The mix of classic black and white with pops of brilliant color reminds me of why I love this city.

I randomly stumbled upon the blog The Skinny Confidential a few months ago and it changed my life!!!!  Was I living under a rock? How did I not know about this fun, sassy, healthy lifestyle blog? 

When I saw that Lauryn, creator of The Skinny Confidential, was coming out with a book I knew I had to get my hands on a copy. 

I’m envious of people who love working out everyday and eating health all the time. Sometimes I just love my couch and a glass of wine too much. But this blog has helped me start changing my habits a bit and this book is a great tool to keep me motivated. 

It’s an easy read that makes you want to be better at being sexy and healthy. 

Latest HomeGoods purchase….

I’ve been obsessed with finding a place to hang an animal skull in my apartment for a while now but nothing seemed to work. Last weeks trip to HomeGoods changed that.

I spied with my little eye this fantastic faux rams skull lamp. It’s a perfect statement piece to a otherwise dull corner and solves my decor dilemma.  

I have a major obsession with Nikes……and apparently I’m all about the army green right now. 

My latest kicks are subtly bold. Neutral-ish with a hint of whimsy.
