Brooklyn Tourist

red stripe2

I’ve lived in NYC my entire life but I must confess, Brooklyn is like a foreign country to me.  I walked around DUMBO and wow, this part of Brooklyn has changed a lot since I was a kid.  It’s beautiful! Between the ice-cream at BROOKLYN ICE CREAM FACTORY, the THE CAROUSEL UNDER THE BRIDGE, and all the beautiful people walking around, I quickly fell in love with Brooklyn! Obviously I had to take pictures at the famous water street location.  Enjoy the pics! redstripered stripe pant2red stripered stripe pant

Brooklyn Bridge

So I must confess…..I’ve never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge until today.  I’ve lived in NYC all my life and yet there are so many places around the city I’ve yet to visit.  So I’ve now set a goal to visit parts of New York that all the tourists come to see.  There is so much to see in my own backyard.  How about you guys? Do you live in a major city but haven’t really explored it? Where do my readers live?? Leave a comment on this post. Enjoy the pic’s.

Spring Cleaning


As a New Yorker, you get to experience all the seasons in one week this time of year. This week, I’ve worn a sweater, jacket, boots, and open toe shoes all in one week. Wearing this jacket from  ZARA is the perfect item to wear when the weather is so confusing.  I spent the previous weekend putting away all my sweaters and winter clothing.

Stripes and Ruffles


I am totally loving the stripes and ruffles trend. The more the ruffles the better! But honestly, every time I tried one of those shirts on, I looked like a clown.  How do some of the girls pull off the look and not me? No big deal…I found this more tamed look at Express at a reasonable price. Click on the links below for outfit details…..

Reflecting in Paradise


I’m not one who commits to my new years resolutions but something different happened in 2016.  This year I promised myself to step out of my shell and try something new.  This year I was turning 40 years old and I started to reflect on my life. Although I have soo many things I’m proud of there still another 40+ years of life I want to live that’s a bit different from what I’m used to.  I’m usually shy and the last person to seek attention. So how do you start behaving the opposite of that? Start a blog and post many many pictures of yourself! Of course!  So now its December and as I spend a few days in La Romana, Dominican Republic, I can’t believe how much I’ve grown and changed.  The beautiful setting in paradise was the perfect place for me to be in and reflect on this year as it ends. What I’ve learned is that no one cares if you jump, scream, dance, sing….etc… seriously…just live your life. Do what ever it is that will put a smile on your face and makes you feel good about yourself.
