Think Heyday

Think Heyday

    Today is about getting down to the nitty gritty on skin care. It has been a long battle with my skin and I’m just now starting to figure it out. It’s an issue that I feel we don’t spend enough time educating or […]

Stay Cool, It’s The Brooklyn Way

Stay Cool, It’s The Brooklyn Way

This past week here in New York definitely determined that summer is here. Scorching hot days — where the minute you step outside you begin to melt — are upon us. My first few summers here in the city I somehow managed to survive without an AC unit. Honestly I don’t know how I did it. Last summer I gave in and finally got an AC unit and now I’m kicking myself I didn’t do it sooner. You live and learn I guess. Unfortunately I’m not a wizard (beginning to think my letter to Hogwarts got lost) and I can’t travel around the city with my own personal AC unit so what I wear is key to staying cool. I won’t deny that I get hot very easily and at times it seems like no matter what I wear I am still uncomfortable. Outfit combo that seems to work best for me is a denim skirt with a loose off the shoulder top. It helps prevent me from looking like a sloppy mess while managing to keep my body cool for the most part. The rest of the summer I will definitely be sporting different variations of this ensemble in hopes of surviving another hot New York summer.

Sunday

  • Renegade Craft Fair at Brooklyn Expo Center. All details you need you can find here. This fair has some amazing vendors lined up and should be an amazing Sunday afternoon adventure.
  • All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. No better way to enjoy a Sunday Funday than at Videology Bar & Cinema watching the epicness that is The Shining while drinking some Jack Daniels. Get all the details here.
  • In between events check out Brooklyn Bavarian Biergarten that has reopened for the season today! (Friday 6/16 at 4:00 PM)

Lights are finally going down and the people around you begin chanting even louder. Music begins to play and you close your eyes the minute you hear a voice booming out through the sound system in hopes of losing yourself in the moment. Right then […]

Coney Island

Coney Island

  Wednesday, June 21 is the official first day of Summer. Even though that is not until later this month, I usually determine the start and end of seasons by months. For me Summer begins by the start of June and goes to the end […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
