An Afternoon in DUMBO

As much as I love a good lazy Sunday, the summer is no time to stay inside on a beautiful weekend day. One of the hardest parts of adjusting to a full-time work schedule this summer was realizing that I was inside sitting all day 5 days a week. So, after a long work week I just want to get out and explore when the weekend comes around. 

This past Sunday my friend and I pulled ourselves out of our comfortable (and might I add air conditioned) beds to head to Smorgasburg and do a little exploring around DUMBO. Despite the messed up trains we actually made it there just before our stomachs started grumbling. 

I had the duck sandwich from Duck Season and a cranberry limeade. They were both seriously delicious so I highly recommend. There are so many options though that you could go back every weekend and never have to eat the same thing twice. Afterwards, I got an ice cream sandwich, which was the perfect treat to cool off with. 
Before we headed over to Smorgasburg we did a little exploring of DUMBO and of course took pictures on Front St with the bridge. Unfortunately, there were no lonely boy Gossip Girl sightings, but I guess there’s always next time. I had never really been to this neighborhood before and I have to say I really loved it. The buildings and views are beautiful and there were so many cute restaurants and shops I want to go back to.

  • My beach view this weekend ๐Ÿ˜‚ Honestly though, I am SO excited to be all moved into our new place - Iโ€™m a homebody at heart so having a place I love to come home to has already completely changed my happiness level (maybe itโ€™s just the vitamin D from all the natural light โ˜€๏ธ) - Moral of the story is there are a lot more mirror selfies to come ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  • Todayโ€™s been perfect... not too hot not too cold ๐ŸŒธ Iโ€™ve been testing out @SecretDeodorant โ€™s new Aluminum Free deodorant and been loving it for those days you donโ€™t need a strong antiperspirant. Plus, it shares 60% of it's ingredients with those in skincare lotion and is dermatologist tested to be mild on your skin!ย โœจย #AluminumFree #ad
