Also, funny story about the Rocket Pop: After we finished using this popsicle as a prop, it was time to start eating it. Being the nice person that I am, I asked my husband if he wanted a bite of my popsicle. He did. Then he proceeded to bite off the entire red part. I was both impressed and intensely jealous. Good thing the white and blue parts are my favorite anyway! Moral of the story? Share your Rocket Pops with caution, y’all. The end.
Yes, blog titles are something to agonize over. Developing appropriate titles is a legitimate concern, peeps.
I spent the day at seedy, crazy, cool Coney Island this weekend. Coney Island is pretty far away from where I live in Harlem, but with the help of the fabulous folks at Blacklane Limousines, a little black town car got me and the hubby there quick and in a hurry (and in style, of course)! Woot!
So here’s the thing, I had all these grand plans of taking cute photos of the carnival food I ate. But as soon as I got my hands on that hot funnel cake I immediately ate it. So you just have to imagine the carnival food as there are no photos of food below.
However, I did get a photo of me and the Zoltar:
The beach was great for people watching, though! However, I really must wear a longer skirt next time. The wind was not my friend on Coney Island and I am pretty sure I flashed everyone multiple times.
And another big thanks to Blacklane for carting us around all day! xo
Get excited, another installment of everyone’s favorite post is here. Behold more outtakes for your laughing pleasure:
This photo might seem unassuming at first, but look closely. You will spot a trio of photo bombers in the background striking poses. This is why I usually avoid shooting in public places at all costs. But when the light is this good, you gotta do what you gotta do.
It wouldn’t be a proper outtakes rundown if there wasn’t a photo of me judging something harshly. I even had to remove my sunglasses for this judgement. The world needed to see the full force of the disapproval on my face.
It’s officially summer — which means it’s time to invest in a new ‘throw-on dress’ aka, the perfect instaoutfit you can just toss on and head out the door. Luckily, I am in the market for a new throw-on dress myself so I made a list of ten I have my eye on:
- Flowy, floral, and fab — I am obsessed with this one.
- This mint number is perfect for endless beach weekends.
- Put. A. Bird. On. It. ‘Nuff said.
- If a maxi is more your style, this one is perfect.
- These stripes are impossible to resist and perfect for any occasion.
- A little black dress that you could wear every day.
- A swing dress is a must-have for the season.
- Is it summer without Lily? This dress is affordable, colorful and easy to wear.
- This dress is one you’re sure to wear to any and every summer occasion.
- This last dress is light, airy and will totally turn heads.
I recently got my hair cut at the Janet Waddell Salon in Gramercy, NYC. Thea, my amazing stylist, gave me a chic and totally wearable lob (aka a long bob) that is perfect for summer.
I think we have all had experiences where we tell our stylist one thing, but then they are all like, “I know what will look good on you, trust me.” And you end up with this crazy haircut where you look like a poorly groomed poodle.
The stylists at Janet Waddell truly listen, but they also make great suggestions. For example, I wanted to get bangs again, but I was worried about the maintenance. My stylist Thea suggested side swiped bangs that are much more forgiving and easier to care for than a blunt fringe.
So get excited. I am giving one lucky reader a $100 gift card you can use for a summer haircut at Janet Waddell Salon!
