I am sitting here writing this completely sweating. Boy has it been hot here in NYC the past 5 or so days and the temperatures aren’t going down any time soon (95 degrees and above today through Thursday). Since moving to the city I can firmly say that it is downright awful when it is 95+ degrees. I was talking to my mom on the phone yesterday and I told her how I think my flip flops have melted and became flatter due to the hot pavement. Yeah its rough and it looks like NYC isn’t the only city that has seen the heat. I keep reminding myself that in 5 months I will be saying boy do I miss that heat wave.
Anyway, I decided to do a different post for y’all this weekend. This weekend was a pretty hectic one and I wanted to share with you what I did. On Saturday I went to the beach! My friends and I went to Rockaway Beach (in Queens) and boy was it a treat. I couldn’t believe that I could take the subway and be at a pretty nice beach! It honestly felt like I was on vacation and I kept pinching myself that I live so close by. Again, it was really hot but I think it was so nice to get away from the buildings/pavement for the day and just relax and dip my toes in the water.
On Sunday I went to Pure Barre in the morning (still obsessed) and then did a ton of errands. I wanted to spend the entire day in my apartment just sitting in the AC but I knew that if I didn’t get my errands done I never will. I hate going into the week feeling unprepared and it really makes a significant different to feel organized. I went to Trader Joes (got some REAL goodies), Target, and then Sur La Table. I only went to Sur La Table because I had an eyebrow appointment in the Upper East Side in the afternoon. I really love Sur La Table, it is such a great store. My intention was to walk in there and just look around but who am I kidding. They had a killer sale and I was able to snatch a beverage dispenser. I have been wanting one of these for quite some time and at $14 I could not pass up! After Sur La Table I went to my eyebrow at Benefit. Y’all if you have a Benefit near you please go there immediately. I have been going to Benefit for about 8 or so years and I love it. The ladies are incredibly friendly (i’ve gone to 4 different locations during my life) and it is such a great experience.
So right now besides sweating I am currently on Pinterest looking at “spa water” so I can start using my new beverage dispenser. I found one below and it is strawberry and lime! Have y’all made “spa water” before? If so, what do you recommend?
