The reason why I love my gym so much is because they always have a new class for me to try. (And no they are NOT paying me to write this). Last week I tried a class called surfset. I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun this class was. (Look it up on youtube). Can't wait to try again this week.
I spent the better part of Saturday doing some spring cleaning. This is the mess that is kinda still taking over my bedroom. Living in NYC closet space is at a premium which means spring cleaning involves putting away the winter clothes in storage and taking out all the summer clothes. I have waaayy too much crap so it is a bit of a task. Might be done by the end of the summer.
We decided to do date night on Friday instead of our usual Saturday. We tried a place called Cellar 58 down in the east village. It was edible. We ended the night with wine and desserts at Sambuca's Cafe. One of my fav places.
We spent Sunday playing tennis by the beach. Lots of fun. Only problem is that I have been sore for over two days now because the last time I played tennis was over 5 years ago. I suppose I will survive.
A lot of people ask me how I manage to have a full time job, go to the gym, cook most of my meals and blog. All this while making it to bed by 11 every night. Oh yeah and I kinda have a social life too. I am not too sure how to answer that but guess what. Life has finally caught up to me which is why I have been a bad blogger lately. I think planning for my summer has pretty much pushed me over the edge. As of Memorial Day Weekend I pretty much have plans for every weekend through mid July. I am pretty sure I am going to spend most of August sleeping. Haha. There is lots to look forward to and although there may be days when I won't be posting I promise I will have lots to share when I get around to it. In the meantime here is how my week went.
Remember at the beginning of the year when I said I was going to take a picture a day for 365 days. Well let's just say that went down the drain this week. I totally fell off the radar mid week last week. I did make up for it this weekend. It started off with a lot of wine and ended with the Five Boro Bike Tour.
...And now for the highlight of my weekend. On Sunday morning we woke up at the crack of dawn and find out way to lower manhattan for the Five Boro Bike Tour. This tour is a 42 mile ride through New York City's five Boroughs. It is a traffic free ride which is always a treat and it is a great way to see the city. This was my second time doing the tour and I have to say it was just as amazing as the first one. I am soo excited that I had the opportunity to do it and cannot wait to do it again. This time I did not stop in every borough to take pics but I did manage to get a few shots. Here are some highlights from my day.
Can you believe that it is almost May. I cannot. Where has this year gone. I am officially now starting to get excited though. The weather has finally started to warm up which means there are lots of great things to look forward. I am counting down the days until I am at the beach.
Initially I was not fond of the lucite trend. Every time I see clear shoes I think of a stripper and it is not exactly the look I am going for. I fell in love with the Lanvin heels when I saw them though. Although the heel it lucite it is smoky so to me they don't scream stripper. Well at least I hope they don't. As for the dress it was another great find. I found it at the clearance rack at Necessary Clothing down in the village. Set me back a whole $10. I can live with that. How do you feel about the lucite trend?
One of the items that I am adding to my wish list is a black cross body bag. Believe it or not I have yet to add one to my closet that I absolutely love. I really would like a Chanel one but don't have Chanel money. I did manage to find some options that all come under $100. Which one would you get?
If I wasn't currently on a shopping diet I would go out and buy maxi skirts in every color I could find them. They are my new found obsession. I got this one for 6 bucks at NY & Co a few weeks back and I absolutely love it. I absolutely love the colors and print and am just dying to mix it up with a few other pieces in my closet. (Look out for a remix post). What trend are you obsessing over this spring?

I cannot even talk about what happened this week. It is almost a blur. I feel like so much happen that it was really hard to keep up. Here are a few snapshots from my week.

Getting dressed has been such a challenge lately. We are hovering between 40-60 which means most days it is too cool to really bring out the spring and summer pieces. I'm looking forward to when I can throw on a dress, a pair of heels and keep it moving. Until then I will be shopping my closet for bright pieces that will keep my spirits up. At least it is not snowing. I am thankful for that. I've had my fill for the year.

I am trying to get better at the impulse purchases. I just need to get better at my purchases in general. I have decided to go on a shopping diet which means that I am going to really have to shop my closet. I recently purchased a pair of gingham print pants and I have to say there are not the easiest to style. When I was trying them on I had a million ideas of how to style them and pooof all those ideas are gone. Here are some ideas that I have managed to come up with. How would you style a pair of gingham print pants?
When I first saw Amanda Seyfried in a lace Givenchy Gown at the Golden Globes I fell in love. I mean the dress is amazing. I love everything about it. I was on a quest to find a copy cat and was lucky enough to find one from Asos and on sale no less. Now I know I am a bit late in posting about this dress but honestly I was waiting patiently for a reason to wear it. I cannot wait to wear it again. I got a similar one in pink as well and will definitely be wearing it this spring/summer.
