Summer Wrap Up

Last time I posted about the summer’s goings-ons, it was late June and the warm days ahead seemed abundant. Now, at the start of September, magical summer nights seem to be dwindling and talk of autumn is slowly creeping up. Fall is certainly feeling close by, if not because the sun setting earlier, then definitely because pumpkin-flavored recipes are already cropping up on my Instagram feed…

Before it’s too late, I’m looking back at some of my favorite moments from the past few months. Scroll with me?

The envy-inducing interior at Indochine. Why can’t my apartment look like this?

TFW you are the only people at the beach. Sorta kinda magical.

Dusk enveloping a beach club in Long Island, seemingly frozen in time.

Until next time, summer. For now, I’ll happily fall into autumn.

The Week’s Healthy Eats (30).

BREAKFAST: Switched it up on a recent weekend morning with scrambled eggs topped with salty feta and a slice of Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread + strawberry jam.

LUNCH: Oldie but goodie. The Hummus Tahina from Sweetgreen. On repeat.

DINNER: The colossal taco salad from vegan hotspot by CHLOE. Yep, there’s “soy chorizo” in there and nope, I don’t know what that is.

Life Lately (25).

I can’t really believe how bad I’ve been about posting. I guess real life (or something like it) gets in the way sometimes. Alas, here are some of my moments lately.

A trip to Rockaway for a sunset stand up paddle boarding lesson was all kinds of new to me. An empty, clean beach? In Queens? Surfboards? What is happening here?

I quickly ditched the queries for this refuel. All the goodies at Rockaway Beach Surf Club, a must must must try if you’re in NYC–and willing to make the lengthy trip. Expect stellar tacos, watermelon margs, and the coolest clientele you could ever imagine.
