hair envy

I am probably the lowest maintenance hair person in New York City, but for the last month or so I’ve been constantly thinking of ombre hair. It may be (or already is) on it’s way out, but I still love how it looks plus it would be a fun way to do something with my hair without much upkeep – you only have to get it done about twice a year! I think it looks best on brown hair, my hair is a dark, dark brown (on the verge of black). I’m sure I won’t be able to go through with it, I always get too scared of damaging my hair with chemicals but I love how these ladies took the plunge. What do you think – love it or hate it? Would you ever do it?

memorial day weekend 2012

Here are a few photos from the weekend. The weather ended up being amazing & I had plenty of time to relax. We ended up missing the first train (due to the crazy NYC traffic) but Lilo was thoroughly entertained with bird watching outside Penn Station (top left). I was super nervous about traveling with her (you would think I had an infant), but she meowed a bit then dozed off.

Tim & I ended up catching a sunrise on Saturday (middle left) which was so worth it. Other than that the weekend was full of eating (yummy breakfast sandwiches) & grilling out. I feel so out of it today, but hooray for 4 day work weeks!! Hope yours was fabulous too! xx

happy LONG weekend!

It’s here, it’s here!! I’m so excited. Summer Fridays officially start today, so I am heading to the beach! Not sure how the weather will be, but I’m just looking forward to the sea breeze, biking, summer beer & grilling out 🙂 Tim & I will also be taking Lilo with us, so getting there (by train) should be an adventure. Have a good one!

Earl Grey Ice Cream

Normally, I am not an ice cream person – but this past weekend I had ice cream 3 times , so I am certainly on a kick 🙂 A few weeks ago, I complained that NY didn’t have enough ice cream shops (it’s true!) and Kelly recommended Van Leeuwen’s Artisan Ice Cream. I finally got a chance to try some Friday and it is amazing! While I was visiting one of the trucks, I tried the Earl Grey and I have not been able to stop thinking about it. This week I have a date with VLAIC, but if you aren’t close to a truck, try this homemade Earl Grey Ice Cream recipe.
