Travel: My First NYC Experience

This past summer I studied abroad in Prague, Czech Republic (one of the most beautiful cities EVER) and met 4 amazing girls that were my roommates for those 2 months. They all happen to be from the east coast, but I am from the west coast so we figured we all HAD to do a reunion. So, we decided to all stay with Fran (da man) in NYC and it was the greatest weekend ever-- to say the least.

Sight-seeing:

Times Square (I thought it was too touristy, but worth seeing!)
Rockefeller Center Tree (it was dead...).
Me and my gurl, the Statue of Liberty (picture taken at random souvenir store).
Fountain near Rockefeller Centre (I bought a New York beanie and wore it for the rest of the trip).

Empire State Building.
Central Park (winter wonderland-- absolutely beautiful).


Food, fashion, nightlife:


Up&Down.
Choker is from Free People (link here).
We went to The Malt House for lunch-- I got the special which was a seared tuna burger with sweet potato fries. So good.
NYC for the first time was a great experience. I realized how different the east & west coast truly are,  but definitely left me wanting to go back. Thanks for reading, XO

Lifestyle: Homemade Bloody Mary Recipe


You either love them or hate them. As for my roommate and I? We are basically bloody mary connoisseurs (kind of-- I mean we make a pretty mean bloody). Here is what ya need...

Ingredients (yields 4-6 servings):
  • Tomato juice
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 limes (save some for garnish)
  • tablespoon of horseradish
  • tablespoon of course sea salt
  • teaspoon of celery salt
  • teaspoon dijon mustard
  • tablespoon of siracha
  • 2 tablespoons of tobasco (or any other type of hot sauce)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • vodka 
  • toppings are up to you-- we chose a salt rim, stick of celery, banana peppers, green olives, and pickles.  
As we were making our bloodys, we just adjusted as we made it and they turned out fantastic. This is a versatile recipe-- make it how ya like! Enjoy, XO
