You all cannot imagine how thrilled I am to have some regularity in my life right now. First off, this was my first weekend that I got to fully enjoy The Concrete Jungle. I am not kidding, either. It was nice not having to worry about being home at a certain hour on a Friday night due to obligations the following day.
I wanted to take advantage of my first weekends, ever and take you all for a virtual tour of my explorations. I hope you all enjoy!
I got to sleep in until 9AM and brainstorm for next month’s projects.
So, NYC is huge on Brunch. I witnessed this first-hand working at my old job. I was so excited because this was my very first brunch date (and I been in New York for almost four months)! K and I had a brunch date at Spring Street Natural Restaurant in SoHo.
Buildings will always make me stop and capture them. No matter how similar they may appear to be, there are always details I find beautiful.
As much as I hate crowds, I always make an effort to grab produce and goodies at Chinatown. The open markets make me feel alive and not to mention: cheap ass produce. I am becoming pro at navigating around markets for inexpensive goods.
“Can I photograph you?” I asked and he was more than happily to agree. This is the epitome of New York’s style. Black on black with different fabric textures such as leather and a color accent somewhere. Captured in SoHo.
Because I don’t have a boyfriend who photographs me and my personal style, here are some detail shots of my outfit of the day.
The Strand Bookstore is a well-known bookstore in Union Square. Outside are racks on racks of used books starting at one dollar! However, I opted out for newer collections. I was browsing and came across two that interest me. Heard many ravings about Bad Feminist. The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. I know nothing about, but read the backing and sound interesting so I am taking a chance on it! Books make me feel some typa way (hahahah, so nerdy).
After a long day in the City, came home to a simple meal. Steamed broccoli, carrots with lemon-peppered tilapia. Gochujang is a Korean spicy paste that reminds me of a plum sauce. I sampled it from Wholefoods and couldn’t resist adding it into my pantry. Trying to expand my palette with non-traditional spices and sauces.
This is me currently at my local coffee shop, Lennox Coffee with my roommate B. A warm almond chai latte while streaming CSxPD’s soundcloud. Unfortunately I did’t capture much today because all I did was run, eat and FaceTimed with my siblings. Sitting here while I am finishing up this post and an upcoming piece for FTS.
Hope you all enjoy the pictures! I am trying to take on more adventures now that I have more time, sorta and make an effort to take photos, edit and share. And for all of you who are wondering how was my first full week back to a full-time job, it was wonderful! Definitely a transition itself, but nothing I cannot handle. Have a lot to learn, but that’s like every new role.
So much to do in the next couple of weeks, though. Hope you all had an amazing warm weekend – we have been hit by rain, winds and chilly weather! Goodnight Family & Friends! Thank you for tuning in (:
