Stripes in the sun ☀️ 

If you’re ever in downtown Tampa and looking for a cute date idea, go to the Riverwalk. It’s such a relaxing walk and the scenery is to die for. At the end of the walk, there’s a fine arts museum that you can go to. (You have to pay for admission obviously) Also, this place is one of the best places to go watch the sunset 🌅. *fellas, you’re welcome”

Sunsets in Tampa, FL 🌴

Tampa, you have my heart ❤️. From the beautiful sunsets to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. (Let me just tell you, if you’ve never tried Fuzzy’s – you’re not living life.) The chicken nachos is TO DIE FOR. 

Anyways, on my way to Tampa I stopped on Sunset Bridge and watched the sunset. (How ironic huh) Check it out!

Livin’ that High Line Life


  

“Let’s go to a historic railroad in NYC, and walk around all day in the blazing hot sun!!” – my mom. As those words were coming out of her mouth, I remembered my dad, sister, and I looked at each other, then looked at her, and said “NO” But, somehow she convinced us to all go and…it was fun!

The scenery is beautiful, from the historical railroad to the magnificent art on buildings. Did I also mention that it’s definitely a place where every instagrammer should go?

Have you ever been there? If so, what did you do?
Much Love,

Give me some love!

Rambo’s Country Store review 

   
   

Like I mentioned in my previous post, we found this cute little store in Califon, NJ. This store has been around since the 1990’s, it still has that rustic feel to it. The store itself is small, but big enough to have a deli/hot sandwich station and be a small convenience store. 

The deli/ hot sandwich section is THE BOMB! We got a pulled pork sandwich, so fresh and delicious. We also got their famous burger. We usually get our burgers medium well, but this only had one option of cooking it well. So we were a little disappointed at first, but let me tell you…that was the BEST well done burger I’ve ever had. It was so juicy and soft, it almost feels like it melts in your mouth. You just have to try it out for yourself! 

Do you have a favorite place to eat after a long bike ride??

Bring it on, 10 mile bike ride💪🏼

   
   

I went on a 10 mile bike ride with my boyfriend a few days ago. This trail is call the Columbia Trail, it also connects a few towns together. It’s hard to tell you where it’s located, because you can start from any point in any town you’d like. 

We started in a town call Long Valley, NJ, ended up in Califon, NJ. We found a stream on the way and stopped for a few pictures. But, I really wanted to stop so I could rest. We can keep that in the DL. Once we arrived in Califon, we got a quick lunch at a place call Rambo’s Country Store. Such a cute little store, it’s been around since the 1990’s. I’ll have that blog up in a few days, you don’t want to miss out! 

How do you like to work out? 

Much Love,

SHAKE SHACK + AROMA ESPRESSO BAR REVIEW

 
  
 Shake Shack @ The Paramus Mall // Aroma Espresso Bar @ The Paramus Mall

A few days ago, my boyfriend and I decided to go to the Paramus Mall. We walked around and shopped a little, but we were really there for the food. Little did we know, there is a Shake Shack at the mall, and I’ve heard about this delicious restaurant all over social media. I walked in and it feels like the Noodle Factor. The menu is small, but it doesn’t need to expand anymore. We got a roadside burger: sautéed onions, beef burger, cheese, and toasted bun. We paired it with a side of fries, which were perfectly crispy and soft on the inside. The burger itself is SO juicy and soft on the inside, it wasn’t overcooked, it was perfect. It basically melted in your mouth with every bite. Oh, I wish I lived closer, because I could really use a Shake Shack burger right about now.

Next, we went to this coffee shop call, Aroma Espresso Bar. My boyfriend ordered the Aroma coffee, which had chocolate bars inside, espresso, and homemade whipped cream. It was the perfect amount of sweet and bitter, and I don’t really like coffee myself. I got a chai latte, because it’s my favorite drink in the world. I honestly doesn’t taste like any chai lattés I’ve ever had, but in a good way. I can’t even describe it, it taste like a vanilla latte, and it’s so delicious. I would recommend this café to everyone.

Let me know if you guys have ever been to those places before!

Much Love,

Ripped up-classy outfit

   Shirt: Banana Republic // Jeans: Levi’s (Thrift Shop) // Bag: Calvin Klein // Sandals: Arizona

Today is the first day of August, surprisingly it wasn’t too hot out. Fun fact: I had leather shorts on right before I changed into these thrifted Levi’s jeans. The weather was perfect, it was sunny with a little breeze here and there. My family and I went to a Chinese restaurant with our family friends. (Click here for the Chinese food blog.) We’ve been to this restaurant for a while now, their portions are pretty big and food is delicious. However, the location isn’t the greatest, it could definitely be relocated. Onto my outfit…

  

My grey knitted tank is from Banana Republic, it was on sale for $12, originally $60. The back of the shirt has an open back detail, it’s so pretty. Also, the open back isn’t too revealing. This shirt is perfect for all seasons, definitely worth the buy! The ripped Levi’s jeans is from a thrift shop. I bought it for $7, what a steal! The rips are perfectly ripped, not too big, but big enough to give off the edgy vibe. My Calvin Klein bag is from Marshalls, on sale for $70. My sissy actually bought this for me, so sweet! Lastly, my sandals that I definitely over wear is from Arizona, I’ve had them for years.

What do you think of this outfit?

Much Love,

Navy, white, and Calvin Klein.

 
This was by far one of my favorite outfits I’ve worn all summer!    Sunnies: H&M // Bag: Calvin Klein (Marshalls) // Shoes: Call It Spring // Skort: Thrift Shop // Crop top: H&M

On a hot sunny day like this past weekend, this was definitely the perfect outfit for it. Let’s start with my navy skort, I got that from the thrift shop a few weeks ago. This thrift shop is called, Plato’s Closet. For those that have been there, you know the deal. For those who haven’t, well it’s basically a regular retail store, and they only sell clothes that are on trend and not worn out. The day that I went, they had a grand opening promotion – pay $15 for a bag full of clothes! What a steal! So, I went with my sister and it was a MAD HOUSE. There were SO many people there, and at one point, it was pretty hard to walk around the store. After trying all our clothes on, we decided on what we wanted, but we couldn’t’ really find too much. So we stood in line, which took around 15 minutes because of the sale. As we were about to pay, my sister found those skort, along with 2 other pair of shorts that are applicable to the $15/bag promotion. So I just stuffed it in the bag and was like, if it doesn’t fit, I’ll just donate it. Got home, tried it on and realized it’s a little snugged. I decided to keep it, because it’s just so darn cute!! So that’s the story behind that thrifted find. (If you want to see what else I got, comment below and I’ll do a thirfted haul!)

My Calvin Klein bag was a gift from my sister! She’s so awesome 🙂 She got it for me from Marshalls, because…who doesn’t love that store? You can find almost any name brands there, at an affordable price. What more could a girl ask for?? This bag is the PERFECT shade of brown and the best part is, it was on sale!

This is by far one of my favorite outfits!

Much Love,

Six Flags Adventure!

Recently, I went to Six Flags Great Adventure Amusement Park in Jackson, New Jersey. This is probably one of the best amusement parks in New Jersey, it’s also one of the few amusement parks in New Jersey as well. I’ve been going to Six Flags since I was 14 years old. I remember the first time I stepped foot onto Six Flags, I thought it was the coolest park ever. Side note: it was also the first amusement park I’ve been to in America. I ran through the park and waited in lines that took more than an hour, but I didn’t care. Back to my Six Flags adventure yesterday, it was the perfect day to go. It was sunny at times, but it was mostly cloudy. It was still hot enough to be outside in shorts and a tank top. The clouds gave us the perfect shade and breeze that we needed really badly, from standing outside in line all day long.

The lines at each amusement parks weren’t really too long, the longest wait was around 30 minutes. The park itself was pretty packed for a Thursday, I might add. Side note: we saw this guy who literally cut through every single person in line and didn’t get caught, it was crazy to watch. Waiting in line wasn’t all that bad, especially with good company. I went with my boyfriend, his brother, and their family friend. All the rides were really fun and we all really enjoyed it. (If you’d like for me to rate all the rides for you, please leave a comment below and I’ll write a review!)

At the end of the night, my boyfriend played a basketball game and won me a GIANT donut pillow. (Scroll down for pictures.) It was so nice to see that he won it for me, even though I donut (ha, see what I did there?) know where to put it in my room. It’s almost as big as me! Overall, it was definitely an eventful day.

We also recorded part of our day, so if you’d like, you can check out my vlog here. If you like the vlogs along with my blogs, then comment below and I’ll start doing it more!

I just thought this picture was funny and wanted to share with y’all! ❤
