what I’m into right now – 3.6.17

what I'm into right now and what I did this weekend!


this weekend….

…Friday, I was beat. it was a long week of work, so when Friday rolled around, I was beat. Lu and I rented “Hell or High Water” on TV and I made it through about half the movie. Chris Pine, you’re cute, but not cute enough. I think I was asleep by 10pm.

…Saturday started with my weekly yoga class that I’m really loving in Jersey City. my sister, Lu and I all went to the yoga class together (yes, Lu has been coming with me the past two times!) afterwards, we met up with my sister’s fiancé, Ben, and we had brunch at a local spot called Beechwood. we walked home and then my sister and I met for a manicure. then, we met back up with the boys and my friend Sarah and her fiancé to go into the city. we went to The Standard‘s Wintergarden in the East Village where we reserved a Yurt. it was hilarious, fun, and delicious (hello, pretzel bites dipped in fondue!) If you live in NYC, I highly recommend it. after that, we met up with some friends at a nearby bar. by 8:30pm, needless to say, we were all exhausted, so we cabbed it back to Jersey City. then, Ben & Felicia came over to our apartment and we hung out for a few hours until I literally woke up on the couch with everyone sleeping around me and said, “I think it’s time for bed!” haha. CRAAAAZY Saturday night.

…Sunday, I literally worked all day long. in the morning, Lu and I had breakfast and booked a trip for June. I am SO, SO excited – we’re going to Hawaii!!! we’re staying in Maui, so please send all of your tips my way! I finished work at about 6pm, made dinner (my Split Pea Cauliflower Curry) and then we watched our Sunday shows – Big Little Lies, GIRLS, and Crashing. perfect way to end the day after writing recipes all day long (literally from 11am – 6pm.)

what I’m into RN…

I need to try these double chocolate black bean brownies.

this dress looks perfect for a weekend getaway this summer.

this heart-wrenching/warming piece from a woman who urges women to marry her husband. read to see why.

is it too early to start shopping for spring slides?

I bought these travel packets of the collagen peptides I take to bring with me on the go. great for stirring into tea, coffee, or even just water!

see you next week!

with love, Ali
