Moving on

This past weekend was absolute bliss. My mom came down to see my graduation. Every day I ate so lavishly to celebrate the next stage in my life and completely forgot about this ridiculous "low-carb" diet I'm on. The Marshal, Ippudo, an El Rio are some really delicious restaurants in NYC...a little pricey though. My boyfriend gave me a new plant. I like the details of the rope around the bottle. I really love terrariums because they are so low maintenance and only need to be watered once a week. On Saturday my boyfriend and I went to a sweet sixteen in Long Island where there was a cool photo booth. I felt so old, and I kind of teared which was odd because I just met the birthday girl. I guess I was touched by how much her parents loved her, and how much it reminded me of my mother's love for me. My mom just left to return back to Texas, and I feel pretty sad about it. 

At my graduation our student vice president proposed to their girlfriend, using 'The Alchemist' as an opening note. He said this before popping the big question to her on stage:

"At that moment it seemed to him that time stood still and the soul of the world surged within him. When he looked into her dark eyes and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke. The language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert. Something that exerted the same force whenever two pairs of eyes met, as had theirs here at the well. She smiled, and that was certainly an omen. The omen he had been awaiting without even knowing he was for all his life. The omen he sought to find in his sheep and in his books. In the crystals and in the silence of the desert... It was the pure language of the world. It required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time. What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life. And that, with no need for words she recognized the same thing. He was more certain of it, than of anything in the world. He had been told by his parents and grandparents that he must fall in love and really know a person before becoming committed. But maybe people who felt that way never learned the universal language. Because when you know that language, its easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you. Whether its in the middle of the desert or in some great city. And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love and makes a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning. Maktub.."

It was sweet and streamed live on the the F.I.T. website if you wanted to watch it.

Now that school is over, I'm not sure what will happen. I'm curious and excited to find out.

I'm in a fridaze...

And love ..
Such a silly game we play, oh,
Like a summer's day in May.
What is love, what is love?
I just want it to be love

Brooklyn Brunchin

Photography: Katrine & Laura 

Sunday is always a good day for brunch. Yesterday me and my friends went to Iris Cafe in Brooklyn Heights. They had this amazing avocado toast I tried, with a sprinkle of pepper on top. After we went riding around in circles with citi bikes...some thing I am most likely not going to do again. I am always up for trying anything at least once though. I was scared of the cars and I got honked at for being so slow.

I don't like my outfit much yesterday. Sundays are always my day for feeling lazy and throwing on whatever. I love the shoes I'm wearing which I picked up at a thrift store for 18 dollars! It retails for $98...what a steal.

Got these killer, and I literally mean killer chunky booties at Forever 21. This morning as I tried putting them on I fell and banged my elbow into the door but still I love these shoes. They're very comfortable to walk in surprisingly but really annoying to get onto my feet.

This week me and my boyfriend decided to start doing yoga together and eat more "healthy". Yesterday was our first actual day and I lasted a good two minutes before I just laid down on my mat and stared at him laughing while he mimicked the lady doing yoga on youtube. Hopefully I get better as time progresses.

I tried liquiteria smoothies for the first time, and totally understand the hype. I feel so refreshed after drinking one...I've only tried the Green Monster so far. Their juice cleanses are so expensive though. I want to try it but I don't see myself spending $147 dollars for only three days.

I'm pretty bored with my blog layout. Expect a change soon.

May Flowers Bring Spring Showers

I graduate college in two weeks...I can't believe it. I'm a mixture of excited and scared. I'm not sure if I'll ever really feel like an adult. I think I have peter pan syndrome...I just don't want to grow up.

Today I had lunch at Maharlika with my friend Jenna and after we went to her boyfriend's bar for some quick drinks.

I read a cool quote today:

"Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it."

If there is one thing I certainly do not is finish a crappy book!

Anyway about my outfit. It's a dress with some pretty flowers on it that reminds me of May. Speaking of May.. can you believe that it is May already?! What the hell. Pretty soon I'll be blogging about turning thirty (yikes).

Hues of Blue

Photographer: Style Feen

I have a lot of clothes..but somehow I still find myself saying I have nothing to wear. I don't even know if this outfit matches...I literally threw on whatever today and so after hanging out with Style Feen I went shopping at Forever 21. I bought two pajama sets, a cute blue romper, a floral dress, and some kick ass white booties.

I use to think it was silly to buy cute pajamas when no one sees them but you. I would settle for a regular over sized tee but lately I've been a I'd like to look cute for myself haha. Maybe I'll do a haul post to share what I got.

Ali Baba and The Groomers in L.I.C

Today was an eventful hang out with Ali Baba, my boyfriend's beagle. We took her to the groomers in Long Island City to get a wash. It was her first time and she came out looking like a posh pup! While waiting, me and my boyfriend got brunch nearby at a place called Blend. It was a cuban restaurant where we ordered delicious egg benedicts with turkey on arepas! We also got mimosas which were really cheap. I should of snapped a picture, but I was too hungry. When we picked up Ali from the groomers we took a walk down towards the water where we ran into a cute flea market. I really wanted a cake pop from no fork eats that I saw at the LIC flea but I was too stuffed from brunch to get one.
