Lately, I’ve been feeling extremely inspired and wanted to keep my creative juicing flowing by going somewhere scenic. I’ve heard from a few people I work with that the NY Botanical Garden, in the Bronx, is definitely a place to have on your bucket list. It’s seriously one of the most beautiful gardens I’ve ever been to. I spent the entire afternoon walking around the greenhouse and the outside trail with my childhood friend Alyssa. It was a perfect day to end the weekend. Hope everyone is enjoying their memorial day weekend!

It’s getting much warmer here in NY and oddly enough I have been grabbing mostly black pieces to wear.
This top I am wearing by Helmut Lang is seriously on repeat and so comfortable that I literally wish I got one in white too! It’s an older style but here is one that is almost identical.

On another note- I know that I’ve been pretty much M.I.A these past couple of months and [I know] it’s been too long! I feel bad about neglecting my blog but I’ve been so busy that I needed to prioritize what was most important first. Now that I’ve settled in the city and finally feel at ease again, I’ve decided to get back to blogging. It’s cool though because I feel that this could be a fresh start and now that I’m in a new city, I can share many new experiences here with you guys. If you guys have any questions on what it’s like moving to a new city or just anything in general, please do comment below or ask me on my formspring and would gladly love to help! =]

Play Date

Took Donatello to his very first visit at the park. He’s actually come to be a very social puppy, unlike most that I’ve met with. He plays well with others dogs even the big aggressive ones. Don’t even get me to mention how much of a chick-magnet he is. I can’t even blame them; he’s too cute for words. I can’t believe how attached I am to him in such a short amount of time!

Photos by Me and Brandon

Lunch at Taste, along with a $5 happy hour menu, includes a grape tomato pizzette, mac and cheese, and mango mojitos.

Messing around with the manual mode on my Canon, finally! I’ve been so afraid of that darn mode for so long but I think I’ve built up enough courage to tackle it now.

Too Late To Turn Around

I almost completely forgot that I had these photos saved away in my computer from a couple of weeks ago! Brandon took me hiking somewhere in Pasadena and we both thought that maybe it would be the level of Runyon Canyon or a little light trail but we had no idea what we were in for. For better or for worse, let’s just say that the hike was unexpectedly a difficult challenge. We had to climb boulders, hike through streams, and lightly walk around rattlesnakes to get there. Dangerous but an experience that I would have never experienced otherwise. Arriving at the waterfall was great but we had not realized how many people were hiking until we got there. The area was a bit overcrowded but I enjoyed the scenery, nonetheless. I can definitely check that off my ‘things I’ve done in my life’ list.

Oh and I forgot to mention that we both fucked up our shoes in the worst way imaginable. Luckily for me, I put my newly purchased, dirty, converse in the washer. While Brandon, on the other hand, had to deal.
