This past weekend I went on a day trip with a friend to Coney Island seeing as my NY experience would be incomplete without a visit. We had corn dogs and "Jumbo" margarita icees, rode the Thunderbolt which was awesome and of course went around the Wonder Wheel. 

For some reason I had this idea in my head that the place would look very different. I'd imagined it all on a pier above water, with the waves under foot. I'm not sure if I'm thinking of some other place but I couldn't get the idea out of my head. So I wandered around happy and mildly confused and accepting of where I landed. 

We went to watch the Brooklyn Cyclones play later that night, and chowed down on pretzels and chili dogs washed down with ice cold Brooklyn Lagers. It was sort of the perfect day. The unexpected, I wasn't ready for it, but totally glad I just went for it sort of day that makes you wistful and nostalgic before you even leave.

You might've seen me posting about this amazing mountain show I went to up in Cold Springs, NY. A small group of really amazing folks were headed to Mt. Taurus and my friend invited me along. I'm so glad he did because it was absolutely amazing.

The 1.5 hour hike up was hell. Literally. I was sweating every last drop I had and was breathing harder than fat albert after half a flight of stairs. It was embarrassing to say the least people. BUT I made it to the top and my goodness what a view! I'll never forget it.

On our decent all these different bands started playing at the coolest little spots. There were all these abandoned structures that made for the perfect backdrop to the music. Needless to say I had an amazing time.

I did learn that I'm seriously out of shape though, like no kidding. I just need to get my butt into the gym and start eating healthier so I think that's what I'm gonna do. Don't get on my case if I slip and eat a cheeseburger because I'm trying guys.

Sitting in my Bed-Stuy apartment with Jolt Radio blasting and the cool breeze blowing through my open window feels oh so right. I've realized my mood is fairly dependent on the weather lol (my fave weather is the breezy and chilly variety [ l a y e r s ]).

I think it's safe to say I have an addiction to the outdoors. I feel a tug to explore any nature trail that crosses my path and lord help me if I discover a nature center because I'll never leave.

I've teamed up with Luxury Rebel to show you that outdoorsy wear doesn't have to be all khaki and army greens. You can mix it up and show off your personal style while adventuring, even down to your trail blazing shoes.

Their Grace sandals were perfect for an afternoon hike because they have good grip and are also really comfy. Not to mention how rad and industrial looking the construction of the shoe is. They're my go to adventure shoes and are perfect for impromptu Summer get a ways.
