How sad is it, that you have some different great locations in your hometown and you never get to experience them? So many people travel to NYC to see all the sights, buildings, monuments etc. and knowing that we have all of this beauty in our backyard and just letting it go to waste.

Oli and I met up, for our first time visit to The Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Everything was absolutely stunning. We walked in on a sunny day , bright and gorgeous. The colors were so vivid. We kept stopping at almost every flower. When we arrived at the wishing well, I already had an idea of what I wanted.

Hanging out with Oli is always the best. We catch up on all of our boy troubles and cutesy moments. We discuss work and what’s our next moves in life.

We stopped by the gift shop where I fell with the cutest succulent (love those!) I regret not buying it. After all the walking and getting caught in the rain, it was time for what I do best…wine.

We ordered some rosé and split some sweet potatoes fries…yum!

High-line with the Mr.



Lately I’ve been telling myself that I need to take my camera with me EVERYWHERE and start taking random shots, capture the beautiful moments.

So what better day and excuse than to start off with my own Mr.Minx.

I wanted to surprise Q and go to the High Line, since he’s mentioned how much he loves it.


I the horrible New Yorker that I am have never been there. I read an article online once, how it was the  best place to go to if there was a zombie Apocalypse,

due to the fact that you can grow your own food and if the exits are gated it would be tougher for them to climb,

anyway, never mind my rambling about zombies, but I was sold! DSC01556

This day I told Q to meet me at work so I can take him on a little walk, not mentioning where we were headed.

As soon as we got off on 14th he guessed exactly where we were going.

What a buzzkill.

You suck Q.


He insisted on leading the way since he knew where he was at, and I had massive printout maps in my purse.

I pouted but let him do his work.


We headed to the Chelsea market, which I have never been to.

I know, I know… I need to get out more!DSC01561

We had sushi, and Q the pro that he is, laughed at my lack of chopstick skills.

Can I get a fork please!

(yeah right, I ended up using my fingers)DSC01549

Our walk was cute, and much needed.

Lately, I’ve been stuck at work all the time, and I wanted to let him know I was thankful for his working around my hectic work schedule.

He’s a trooper and I’m so lucky.

Well… I hope you guys enjoy my pictures, since I finally got some decent shots and put my camera to use.




Loving on the train, I think he likes me.DSC01620Until next time guys!
