Have to finish up some posts soon but I just wrapped an insanely long Monday, it’s 1am in NYC so I’m clocking out, later.✌🏼🐒
It’s the very first Friday of May which happens to be Cinco De Mayo this year and it’s down pouring, nice. Of course my thoughts are consumed with tacos but I’m working from home and trying to avoid seamless for the sake of my bank account. I’d also assume Mexican Restaurants have an insane demand at this giving moment to add to this equation of things.
I decided to pull up my adult pants and scavenged through my fridge. Luckily I eat tacos often enough where I always have soft tacos in the fridge or freezer and your girl never skips the avocados (especially when they’re in season). Add some sriracha and an egg (not claiming this is a traditional taco) and boom you have a simple yet delicious lunch. I also made some corn in a cup which may be my favorite little side dish to make in a matter of minutes (you can cheat with frozen corn from the bag).
You may acknowledge that I’m late to the trend but I have yet to fall in love with this year’s Pantone color: Greenery. Even the name sounds unappealing as much as I personally tend to like green (besides hating lime/light greens in any clothing and/or decor).
Last year’s Rose Quartz on the other hand was intriguing and for the first time in my whole entire (still relatively short) existence I fell in love with Pink out of all colors. I even started purchasing pink items such as my favorite Stella McCartney sneakers and was eager to decorate with rose colored accessories but Alex didn’t feel my tumlr pink teen vibes, meh.
Here is some PINK inspiration that I continue to obsesses over, Pinterest finds:
In case you were wondering, the dining room pictured above is located at Sketch in London. I did not take this photograph however I have been there before and can tell you the whole place is very appealing, perhaps i’ll write a separate post on the town-house gone tea parlor/restaurant/bar. Although if you follow any social media trends you may already be familiar.
-My camera roll is filled with ROSA too –
I have finally made a schedule and laid out material to post. I shall remain active this time around as I’m well prepared unlike before.
Yesterday I took my “nephew” (family friends kid) to the National Museum Of History. I love that place more than I could ever express! One of my favorite sections is the Mineral & Gems department which is filled with beauty. Such as these (below).
Will be posting about some neighborhood favorites tomorrow to start off a category of favorite NYC restaurants!
Personally I didn’t always have the healthiest relationship with food nor nutrition, especially since I struggled with Bulimia for quite some time. I was lucky enough to recover which included building a good relationship with food which has become somewhat of a passion these days. Growing up traveling a lot I’ve never been shy to try new dishes, something that still runs deep. My cooking skills are still evolving but all I know I owe to my mother and grandmother who I observed growing up, tack!
In an attempt to start writing daily I wish to share some favorite recipes of mine as well as recommendations (mostly in NYC) on where to dine based on budget, cuisine, atmosphere etc.! I’ll share some good (ok fine…decent) images along with my posts to make them more visually appealing.

Currently writing a post on Maui and recommendations but because my schedule is non-stop I’m taking my sweeeeet time.I’m also waiting to receive some pictures I took on two cheap disposable cameras (so fun, yet usually a disappointment). In the meantime I’ll share a few pictures, btw I was a moron and lazy enough that I forgot/ignored the fact that I was using a portrait lens all week. One afternoon we spotted the sun setting off in the horizon and I was in disbelief of how the sun could appear so large, I took a mental photograph instead due to my lack of equipment. Same goes for the stars, the stars were purely magical and for someone who always enjoyed astronomy and more recently science, I was blown away. I think a tri-/mono pod needs to be purchased in the near future and perhaps I need to re-invest in a camera/lenses. But immigration needs to come through with the work documentation first hehe.
Sorry I’ve been absent for a bit. Busy figuring out visa stuff and doing re-search on a million and one things. Not to mention frantically reading about what our new President is proposing. Nothing great so far unless you’re against Climate Change & Women. 😭
I will write a little travel post on Maui which we visited earlier this month. Which was nothing short of amazing ✨
Here’s a little sneak peak boomerang from the trip.
