…slurped a milkshake at Brooklyn’s soda fountain

I’ve loved living in the East Village – the coffee! the food! the transport! the very suspicious smells! – but I’ve decided to make the move to Brooklyn with Ryan. We both love Carroll Gardens (just look at how leafy it is!) so we’re hoping to nab a place there. But I’ve only been semi honest with Ryan about my …

…brunched at Korzo

Waking up when it’s still dark in the week means that I’m usually stirring far before a socially acceptable time at the weekends too. And as soon as I do, what am I thinking about? You got it.

On Friday after work, Rachel, Meghan and I jumped on a train to the quintessential New York City vacation destination: Montauk. While I’ve never been before, I’ve been hearing about the Hamptons and nearby Montauk ever since I moved …

…went to a bridal shower

It’s been a bit of a wobbly week as far as matters of the heart go. But today I got to see why it’s all worth it in the end: My friend Bree grinning from ear to ear at her bridal shower – the first I’ve ever been to. I met Bree, who’s from Chicago, …

…went to a listening party

Hear hear, who knows what a listening party is? Well, tonight I found out. You sit in a bar, drink far too many cocktails and celebrate new music. In this case – Dylan’s. Okay, okay, so this ‘new thing’ feels like I’m cheating a little bit. But I’d never been to a listening party before. Dylan (under the guise of Swampboots) is …
