Oh hey! Is everyone enjoying the last days of summer to the fullest? Great! I’ve been wanting to do a summer recap for a while now, and Garance inspired me with hers. So here we go. It’s not over yet folks!
I’d love to hear your summer recap! Answer some (or all) of the questions in the comments below.
Resolution of the summer To drink a cup of warm water with lemon AND a tall glass of green juice every morning (since I’m never hungry for breakfast). So far, so good.
Song of the summer I’m still not 100% sure on that one, but I’m really digging the songs on my Soundcloud these days, especially this Bob Marley remake.
Meal of the summer A tie between ZZ’s Clam Bar in NYC and Lavanderia in Montreal.
Cocktail of the summer A Shark Attack at Mother of Pearl. Order it and you’ll see what I mean.
TV Show of the summer I don’t watch a lot of TV (especially not when it’s nice out!) But Wet Hot American Summer is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.
Shortcomings of the summer I kind of forgot to workout on the reg. Oops! At least I improved my tennis and golf games.
Shop of the summer MONC XIII. Love. That. Place.
Party of the summer It involved the Hamptons house of former Hercules star Kevin Sorbo, a performance by JaRule and an unfortunate bush fire. It was on 4th of July.
Iced latte of the summer Hands down Toby’s Estate Coffee in the West Village. I crave it every day.
Pinch me moment Seeing my face in print magazine in the September issue of House & Home. Pick up your copy now, my apartment is featured. Eeeek!
Bucket list moment Attending the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic with a few gal pals. Been wanting to do that for a few years and it did not disappoint!
Purchase of the summer The never-been-worn Burberry tunic I got at my aunt’s consignment store for a steal(sshhh)!
Book of the summer Not that I read a lot (add that to shortcomings) but China Rich Girlfriend was the perfect beach read.
Hotel of the summer Crow’s Nest in Montauk where I stayed last weekend with Lauren and Sam. Sean MacPherson, you outdid yourself again!
Local haunt of the summer Montreal’s No Name Bar. The classic cocktails, the 50s music, the banana leaf trees, the tuxedo’ed waiters, the slow moving fans… it’s just so Casablanca.
Ugh moment of the summer It’s a tie would be a tie between getting blisters til I bleed on my way to a meeting, or not being to find a cab in the pouring rain and walking 30 blocks in what I’m pretty sure were garbage water puddles. Yuck.
Photo-op of the summer This one.
Recipe of the summer Watermelon salad. I ordered it, made it endlessly in all it’s varieties. Yum.
Destination of the summer With 7 times and counting since May, this one goes out to NYC.
This is summer moment A crab boil with chef Chris Rendell of Surf Lodge and the Google Play Music team. We learned to make tuna tartare from the best!
