I’m sure just like everyone else my style has evolved throughout my life. When I look at pictures of myself from middle school, high school even college I can’t believe what my style used to be like. For the longest time I would dress similar […]

Skinny Dennis x Vinyl Ranch

Skinny Dennis x Vinyl Ranch

After living in Brooklyn for quite some time it is definitely starting to feel like home to me. I have my favorite restaurants, coffee shops and watering holes. I must say when it comes to deciding which place should be my go-to to let off steam or grab a cold beer, I usually lean towards a dive bar. The atmosphere is always right up my alley and not the mention the people you meet at dive bars are always fascinating and full of conversation. Quite a while ago I was living in Greenpoint and a new bar opened that prided itself on featuring live music and being a honky tonk in an urban jungle. Named after the country music bassist, Dennis Sanchez, Skinny Dennis was born. I’ve always been a huge advocate for live music and a lover of honky tonks, now a bar finally encompassed all of that while also giving me a place to belt out classic, legendary country songs. Even though Williamsburg has slowly become my least favorite neighborhood in Brooklyn, I will always make the trek over there on my bike to Skinny Dennis. I pride myself on being loyal in all aspects of my life.

 

 

A few weeks ago Skinny Dennis had a weekend dedicated to the great Willie Nelson for his 84th birthday. Numerous acts performed and Vinyl Ranch from Texas made an appearance to do some epic DJ’ing. One act in particular, Cale Tyson, was amazing. I have been following him and his music for awhile and seeing him live was incredible. I find it more of a memorable experience seeing artists that I know or discover in an intimate setting like Skinny Dennis rather than at a facility like Madison Square Garden. I feel more of a connection to the music and can easily move back and forth between the bar to keep a beer in hand.

 

 

There are so many great bars in Brooklyn, especially out of the Williamsburg neighborhood (yes there’s more to Brooklyn than Williamsburg). One bar in particular that I would suggest visiting though is Skinny Dennis, especially if you love live music, great cheap beer and good company.

 

 

Tip: Ask for a ‘Willie’s Frozen Coffee’, no questions asked. You’re welcome!

It’s a common phrase that absence makes the heart grow fonder, or in some cases gives you perception. I’m sure my absence hasn’t gone unnoticed  on here but sometimes taking a step back can be beneficial on all fronts. This past year has been a […]

Since moving back to Brooklyn, I lucked out that the apartment I found has access to the roof. It is such a spectacular view of the city from up there. This entire summer I have been utilizing my roof access whether it’s just taking pictures, drinking a few beers, or having a little picnic dinner. A few weeks ago we had one of the more amazing sunsets I’ve seen since living here. The sun was bright orange, and the sky turned a beautiful magenta/lilac hue. Enjoy the few pics I was able to snag!

The weather is slowly shifting to fall, and my excitement level is skyrocketing. With September, almost upon us, I am mentally preparing my wardrobe for cooler temps. I look forward to autumn every year when the first signs of fall fashion are placed in stores. […]

When I first moved to Brooklyn one thing I noticed was that everyone had backpacks. Initially, I laughed and found it very comical that all these adults were walking around with backpacks instead of tote bags or briefcases. I always associated backpacks with school and didn’t see the point of them outside of carrying all my books and notebooks to class. Needless to say after quite a few months of struggling with my tote and always having to switch my weight from shoulder to shoulder I decided to give the backpack trend try.

When Rebecca Minkoff introduced the Julian Backpack, I fell in love. I had seen a few other people around the city with them and just couldn’t help but lust after it. Finally after a long winter I decided to venture into Manhattan for a shopping day, first stop was Rebecca Minkoff. I decided to bite the bullet and get the backpack I had been eyeing for months. Needless to say, I more than got my money’s worth on it. All my other bags have been put on the back burner since picking this beauty up. I now fully understand why backpacks have become a thing beyond school.


How do you feel about the backpack trend? Yay or Nae?

The arrival of spring means rainy days, especially in the month of April. I love the warmer temps but a rainy day here, and there is the perfect dose. There’s nothing like curling up on my windowsill reading a book and listening to my rainy […]
