City Lovin'

Being a city lover, I missed the feel of walking through New York City in the summer time. Unlike past summers, I've only gone to the city at most 3 times this whole summer, which is so upsetting. But I did take advantage of my day off and decided to go to the city with my good friend, Vicky. I wore a black maxi dress from H&M and did my very first sock bun! It was a messy bun with a bunch of fly aways but I guess that's why they say practice makes perfect. It couldn't have been a better day to walk all throughout NYC; going shopping and eating good food. While walking around the NYU Campus, we made a pit stop at the Washington Square Park and we saw kids running around and playing in the fountain. It couldn't have been a better day for that, with the humidity and all. I also discovered my new favorite drink from Starbucks, the green tea lemonade but I heard the Peach Green Tea Lemonade is even better so I'd have to try that next time! 

Have a lovely August everyone and enjoy the Summer and the weather before it's gone! Sooner or later before we even know it, it'll be Fall, yikes! But I'm so excited for the winter season, so I can wear all my sweaters and other comfy clothes.

Although I've been working so much this month, I feel like I had a lot accomplished as well. Hanging out with my friends before they all go away to college and having that family bonding time we have annually. I can't believe it's already August, which means Summer is almost over and Fall is right around the corner, which also means school's going to start soon. The nerves of going to school and living in a completely new environment and area hasn't exactly hit me yet but I'm sure I'll feel it while going college dorm shopping. After quitting my job on the 15th of August, I will definitely take that chance to see my friends one last time and make the most out of what's left of my summer vacation! Hope you all had a lovely July because I know I did!
