Wednesday Link Up // Vol. 12

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Summer is finally here! 
but not really cause Summer officially begins on June 21st... I digress. 

BBQ season is in full effect!~ This past weekend, like so many of my fellow Americans, I enjoyed grilled delights - hamburgers, hotdogs, ribs - oh my! I also flew a kite for the first time in my LIFE! (I've obviously got a lot of rollover to-do's from childhood)

Memorial Day Weekend wouldn't be complete without a little sunbathing, and luckily by Sunday the temperature rose to a high of 86 - Wepa! Prospect Park was completely camped out, but I still managed to snag a great spot with just the right amount of sun and shade.

So excited to share all the goodies I've come across this past week, especially the trailer for Magic in the Moonlight, the upcoming Woody Allen film starring Emma Stone!

Wednesday Link Up // Vol. 11

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Can we just pretend I didn't miss last week's Wednesday Link Up? :}
Just happy thoughts on this week's Wednesday Link Up!

Music makes you lose control!
Could it be? Am I actually excited about American music?! I've actually gone ahead and started a Spring/Summer 2014 playlist on Spotify and there are NEW songs in the queue. What are the singles that I'm currently gushing over? 
So far, so good America ;} 

More Wednesday Link Up Goodness?! Mmhmm. 

Music Monday: Jazmine Sullivan is BACK!

Monday, May 12, 2014

Jazmine Sullivan is BACK! 
Happiest of Happy Music Mondays! 

I was really sad when Jazmine decided to step out of the music scene, and while it's taken me a few years to learn to appreciate some of her songs, there were quite a few tracks I was an unwavering fan of. 

Stepping back in is not always easy, time passes and things change while you're gone, but she's on a JT-like track and recently dropped a gem. Does this mean all her following singles will be hot?  No, but I'd like to think that this proves she's still got that raw talent flowing in her veins. I hope she keeps on givin' it to us just like this! 

Enjoy :) 

Happy Monday!

The Wednesday Link Up // Vol. 10

Thursday, May 8, 2014

It's that time of the week... 
Time to hook ya up; let it rain links! 

For the love of food... 
Cinco de mayo may be over but it's always a good time for a margarita. Switch up from the usual and try out this Tropical Mango Papaya Margarita recipe! ( I can't remember the last time I ate papaya, but this should get the ball rolling again ;} )

Anyone who knows me well has shared a meal or five with me, and they've witnessed my love for spicy foods ( right now my dreams are of hot pepper soup and fufuo ~ nom nom nom! ) So there's no surprise I'm a fan of sriracha and this sriracha graphic tee! It'll go great with the rest of my food-related clothing (thanks Pyknic!).

Speaking of fandom and love (turned obsession), two and a half weeks ago, I started watching Game of Thrones (yes, I know, FINALLY) and a lot of my friends expressed concern for my ability to catch up in time (Do they REALLY know me?). My boyfriend and I are so hooked, that we've already made it to Season 3! (Yeah b*tches!) ... Anyway, as most of my friends have guessed Khalessi is easily one of my favorite characters, so I was Comic-con-fan excited about this Khaleesi inspired burger I read about on adweek. (My "To Eat" list is quickly growing!) 

Rolling along, here's a Planters commercial that made me giggle (more than it probably should). Looks like Planters is stepping it up a notch in the peanut department, and it might just work to get me to go to the store and grab a can for the office.

Wrapping up this post without breaking theme!

This week I volunteered at The Village Voice Choice Streets 3rd Annual Food Truck Event. It was a great experience working with other food (& beer) lovers! I met some interesting people and sampled some amazing food. Did you know there's a pupusa food truck? WHERE HAVE I BEEN?! I got paired up with the fellas from ToumNYC (Lebanese Food); check out the site and track the truck to try out their chicken shawarma (soooo good!) Despite how exhausting long my day was volunteering for 5 hours after a full work day, a free ticket to this year's Brooklyn Pour in September makes it all worthwhile!~

Till next hump day...
Happy Belated Wednesday! 

LIFE/MUSIC/FOOD: Sweetlife Festival 2014, Here I Come!

Friday, May 2, 2014

SweetLife Music and Food Festival
With a slew of music festival announcements popping up, you can be sure Summer is not too far away! 

The Sweetlife Music & Food Festival is no exception! This time last year I was planning my trip to Baltimore where I got a chance to see Passion Pit, Gary Clark Jr., Kendrick Lamar and Solange LIVE! They were all amazing and really rocked the crowd! Let's not forget the food - There were tons of options (vegan & vegetarian too!) The festival is equal parts music, food & sustainability focus.

With that said, I'm excited to announce that:

I'll be covering Sweetlife 2014! 

This time I'll be going on behalf of my blog. Hopefully this is one of many music and/or food festivals
 that I'll be covering on behalf of Urban Inspirations NYC.

This year's lineup includes Lana Del Rey / Foster The People / Bombay Bicycle Club / & more! 
Check out this Spotify playlist // SweetLife Festival 2014 for the festival & prep yo'selves! 

What festivals are you guys looking forward to in 2014?
