Excuse me if this post jumps around a bit; I had a few fig mojitos and aphrodisiac margaritas too many last night in POLAR in The Marcel at an event hosted by Single Edition Media. I am nursing a pretty wicked hangover today. Still.
Blame the frigid temperatures in New York. A new boyfriend. My relentless search for life’s meaning. But I have been in hibernation for many months now and am finally ready to shed some clothing (well, not yet; after a week of tank tops and sandals, I’m back to overcoats and pants. The hell??) and party like a rock star. The past few weeks have been deliriously busy but filled with exciting adventures and I’m ready to reclaim my joie de vivre that has escaped me for far too long.
Last week I ventured over to Park Ave after work with my friend for some delicious eats and the strongest mojito I’ve ever had in my life at Sushi Samba. Friday night another friend and I took full advantage of the warm weather and enjoyed some outdoor cocktails in midtown. I also attended a baby shower and went to the Toots and the Maytals show over the weekend at Brooklyn Bowl (highly recommend this venue if you haven’t been there already) with my brother and Bryan. Hard to believe, my little bro’s all grown up. He just turned 30, only three years behind me, but somehow it just makes me feel old. It was a beautiful and exciting weekend all at once. I had the chance to catch up with old friends and dance with my boyfriend to some sweet reggae… what could be better?
I am going for my first overnight with the boy this weekend. He wanted to take me away for my bday (which is next week) so we’re going to a bed-and-breakfast for some relaxation and wine tasting. I’m not gonna’ lie; I’m mostly excited about the jacuzzi and fireplace. Sounds romantic and snuggly.
So that’s pretty much it from here. In addition to the social life accelerating a bit, I’ve been working on a few projects on the side which are helping to pay the bills and keep me afloat. Someone’s gotta pay off all these mojitos!
How are you all, my sweet ones? Will stop by shortly to catch up with you. XOXO
