This Saturday my husband gave me the best surprise ever – he brought me to The Scooper Bowl!!!
New York City was the first stop on the Scooper Bowl World Tour this year. I have never heard of it until this weekend, but I feel like it is something more people need to know about! The Scooper Bowl is the nation’s largest All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival. I mean, they had me at “all-you-can-eat ice cream” and they sealed the deal when they said it was all for an amazing cause. The proceeds for The Scooper Bowl benefit the Jimmy Fund, which supports pediatric and adult cancer care and research at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and pediatric care at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. This festival made our tummies happy from trying ice cream from some of the most amazing creameries, and it made our hearts happy to be an active part in the Jimmy Fund’s mission to help fight cancer.
One year ago today I moved to this city and I never looked back.
Ever since I was young, I remember dreaming of such a moment, but I never truly believed that it would come true for me. I’m not quite sure when I decided to not let my dreams just be dreams. I have a feeling it was somewhere in between Zach getting a call from The Today Show while we were eating at Buffalo Wild Wings one day and the moment where I stood with tears streaming down my face as I lugged two large suitcases on a one-way plane ride to NYC. When I look back on it, I guess I never really went out and chased my dreams…I was kind of just pushed in to them after life got sick of me staying in my comfort zone for too long.
Hello beauties! Here is another Five to Try coming in real hot.
I already feel like this series is going to get out of hand because I keep on finding SO MANY cute pieces! I am seriously fighting back the urge to post more than one of these every week. I’ll also go ahead and apologize now for making you question what you may or may not be putting your weekly paycheck towards from here on because these items might just be too hard for anyone to pass up. I hope you enjoy!
Welcome to the Rainbow Room.
It is an iconic New York City landmark where you can experience world class dining and entertaining 65 stories above Rockefeller Center. I wasn’t quite sure what we were getting in to when we made these fancy reservations one Sunday for brunch, but boy am I thankful that we got to experience it. Needless to say, it may or may not be the only time that we will have the honor to dine there because the price tag isn’t for the faint of heart! BUT I must say that it was worth every single penny and I left feeling like I was wined and dined like royalty. They had stations upon stations of the most delicious food, a whole freshly pressed juice and smoothie bar, an entire corner dedicated to just desserts, and there was a menu that you could specially order from. I haven’t even gotten to the best part – it was completely unlimited! And the second best part? That view. Oh, don’t even get me started on how beautiful that view of New York City was.
Hello friends! Welcome to my newest series “Five to Try” where I show you the pieces that I am currently crushing on. As a part of my job, I am constantly searching for new pieces to feature in articles and segments for people across America. During these searches I ALWAYS find things that I am just dying to try myself. Everything pictured below are items that I have been eyeing in all of my favorite shops for some time now. My picks really have no rhyme or reason – I just wanted to open you up to options that you might not be able to find on your own. Each week I will give you various pieces to possibly try out for yourself – all things ranging in different sizes, colors, silhouettes, and prices. Who knows, you might even see me rocking a few of these in later posts :)
Go get your shop on girl – I hope you enjoy!
