Starting NOW I'll be better...I Promise!

Good Morning Everyone!


Excited for the weekend? I honestly can't wait!


It's been a very long week but I made the promise to myself that I'm going to be a better blogger. I used to post almost everyday and I want that back, because I do miss the blogging community and interacting with my readers. So, starting NEXT week... you'll be seeing more of me. 


I want to take this opportunity to thank Mary Lane from The Blonde for awarding me with:

I really appreciate it and it made me smile. Mary Lane has a wonderful blog full of fashion and fun... so you should all check it out! I know I'm supposed to say 7 random things about myself but I know I've done that so many times so I'm going to pass. I will however, pass this on to 5 blogs, which I adore:







I had the incredible opportunity of meeting Tamra from Walks With Bella a little while ago, and...


We shared some food, Sangria and a lot of laughs. She's so beautiful, smart, fashionable and easy to talk to. Her blog is fantastic... you all need to see her wedding photos! We have another date set-up next week and I'm really looking forward to it. We'll definitely take some pictures this time :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Enjoy the sun :)

Happy Monday!

Summer Sales... Uh Oh!

Hello all!


Did everyone have a nice long weekend? It was so great having a break from work!


I made the mistake of meeting some out-of-town friends for brunch in Soho on Sunday, and stumbling into Bloomingdale's and Zara... and leaving with 4 pairs of shoes! YIKES! They were, however, on sale... 40-50%!! I'm pleased.


What do you think of them?

Tory Burch

Boutique 9

Zara

Zara
I can't wait to wear them all!


What's everyone up to this week?

A Bondi Road NYC Brunch.

Good Morning!


Are my American & Canadian friends excited for the long weekend? I honestly can't wait! I need some relaxation time.


Sunday brunch is a HUGE deal in NYC, which is perfect, since breakfast is my favorite meal. I have been trying a bunch of different venues and have stumbled upon one that was absolutely spectacular. The restaurant is called Bondi Road and it is located at 153 Rivington St on the Lower East Side (between Clinton St & Suffolk St).





It's a small venue with small tables, but the atmosphere is very laid-back. The place is decorated to feel like Bondi Beach in Australia complete with televisions and a mural:



The crowd was mixed with locals and tourists... and the food was absolutely delicious!! 

The best part... the Endless Brunch deal:


I definitely recommend this spot!

Happy weekend! What is everyone doing?

Camera Stolen!

Good Morning!


My camera was stolen, which is why I haven't updated. I'll be getting a new one this weekend!


So, in the meantime, I leave you with some inspiration:

Who. What. Where.

Hi All!


Based on your comments, I've decided to start a new weekly post called "Who. What. Where." This post will review and discuss NYC restaurants, bars, clubs, events, etc. that I've recently been too! NYC is non-stop and there is always something going on in this city.


Today, I'd like to introduce you to Bistro 61:


Bistro 61 is located at 1113 1st Avenue - 61st Street. 




It's a fairly small restaurant with an amazing atmosphere: tinted lights, interesting artwork, exposed brick walls and wooden furniture. I absolutely fell in love with the place before I even sat down to dinner!

The restaurant also has some funny perks, for example, the menus are shaped like old records, which I thought was fun:


The dinner menu has a huge selection ranging from mussels to pasta to burgers and soups. I opted for the Bistro61 burger, which was AMAZING!! 


I definitely recommend these European-inspired bistro to anyone visiting New York City!

Check out their website!

What do you think of the Who. What. Where. ?

KIU and have a great weekend!
