Wow! I just got a message from WordPress that it’s my one year anniversary on the site. I had no idea that an entire year had gone by.

Its been a really great experience posting and interacting with followers! Thanks to everyone who has been following, commenting, and re-blogging!! Now on to Year 2……

What  I love about Brooklyn is that art is everywhere.

It’s on your way to the Bodega. It’s down the stairs you use to throw out your garbage. It’s on the road you take to get on the subway.

It’s on the shirt you wore. It’s there in the way you matched your sneakers to your outfit. It’s there in how you perfectly cut your shirt to add some style. It’s there…..

It’s everywhere you go. It’s always with you and within you.

This is one of my favorite shirts and can be found here

It was beautiful outside this past Saturday. My friend called me to tell me to come out!

I couldn’t decide what to wear at first. I wanted to be comfortable but still look funky. I decided to pair my new stretch-denim shorts with a plain t-shirt,  my clutch bag, earrings, and sunglasses. I knew the perfect pair of shoes to wear…comfortable and funky!

I took the bus to enjoy the fresh air instead of the subway.

As I walked around I saw a stoop sale where they had the most amazing record collection. I saw records from Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, and even Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff! It was so much fun to look through all the old records and reminisce.

Then I decided to go people watching! I walked a few blocks to my favorite outdoor summer spot. Of course, people-watching just isn’t complete without a cold drink. I got a drink and enjoyed the night and watched all the fashionable people walk by. But all that walking made me hungry!

At the end of the day, I decided to take a cab home instead of the bus. I had a great Saturday 🙂

I had my birthday this past weekend and left the house with a smile, ready to start my day. I took a nice stroll through Brooklyn and stumbled upon a cute vintage store. I found these really cool wooden bracelets that looked great with my outfit. I couldn’t resist the great price and had to have them! Then I went to PetSmart to look at kittens. I thought about adopting one and even played with the kittens! They were soooo cute.

After walking around Brooklyn and playing with the cats, I got hungry. The sun was going down so I decided to grab a slice of NY pizza and bring some home. I stopped at “Not Rays Pizza” on the way home and walked back with the smell of pizza calling out to me. I couldn’t wait to sit down, kick off my shoes, and eat my slice.
