Although the weather might not feel Christmassy outside, it sure feels like it inside. I managed to escape in the wee hours of the morning during one of New York City's first snowstorms to fly South for the holidays.

My mom and I have been cooking up a storm and making sure everything is set for our Christmas festivities. From decorating the house with paperwhites to planning holiday parties with our neighbors, the holidays always remind me of how nice it is to cherish family traditions.

Weekend in Montauk

Last Friday we hightailed it out of the city and headed to The Hamptons for a weekend escape.

Our itinerary was filled with lunch at the Clam Bar, Levain Bakery for a mid-afternoon snack, drinks at Montauket to toast the sunset, and dinner at Muse in Sag Harbor. 

I managed to pick up a few pieces of art for my apartment. Oh and and we stopped by Serena & Lily…wish I could’ve just moved right into their showroom!

The weekend flew by, but it was so nice to get some vitamin sea and feel the last bit of the hot summer sun.

We’ll be back, Montauk! 


Smorgasburg in Williamsburg

Looking for something fun to do on a Saturday in New York? Venture into Brooklyn and try out all of the infamous foods you see in your Instagram newsfeed. Lauren and I are always bookmarking restaurants to try-out and Smorgusburg was the perfect place to knock a few off our list. We met up with Drew and his friend, Pete and made our way into foodie heaven. First on our list was to try the Ramen Burger. Man, that was delicious! Lauren went for the Wowful ice-cream next and I managed to sneak a few bites...

Next time your wondering what to do on the weekend, give Smorgusburg a try. The line for the Ramen Burger goes by quicker than would you think, I promise!
