I’m spending this Sunday chilling at home because its a million degrees outside. I did however make my way to Target this morning before the sun started boiling New York City. I managed to buy a lot of things I don’t need and some things that I really needed. I intended to spend only $50 but ofcourse yall know how things get at Target and I ended up spending double that. Le Sigh. Anywho, here’s whats been going on in my neck of the world this weekend.
Yesterday I hit up Williamsburg with the boy. I swear if I ever get semi rich I will buy a townhouse off a quaint street in Williamsburg. I just love how small and quiet yet hip it is. It was bursting with activity yesterday too. There were tons of folks doing stoop sales and all the little cafes and coffee shops along Bedford Avenue were packed with Brooklyns finest. It’s a great place to people watch too. The boy and I checked out some shops before heading to the Smorgasborg and getting some food. We then sat by the water for awhile before taking a nap in a grassy knoll. It was the perfect day really and we topped it off with a trip to a really cool coffee place, complete with vintage phones and type writers.
The bulk of my overspending at Target happened because of my obsession with candles. I love candles but not just any candles, white candles and green candles. it is a full blown obsession. I usually burn a candle (or 5) on a daily basis. My favorite candle in the world in the Tahitian Vanilla Candle from World Market. OMG. Its like a vacation in a jar. The Pacific Island Soy candle comes in as a close second favorite candle scent.
Like everyone else with an iphone I have a full blown obsession with instagram along with a book marked list of “users” I explore on a daily (well hourly) basis. They range from some of my favorite bloggers to singers, to people famous for dating people, to DJs. Check them out if you are looking for for interesting flicks.
Super Moons and Movie Watching
I hope you caught the super moon last night. It was literally breathtaking and just stunning. the boy alerted me to it and it was so big and bright I almost cried at the sight of how beautiful it was. Its funny how nature can make you feel so incredibly small sometimes but in the best way possible. last night we stayed in and watched one of my favorite movies of all time, Brown Sugar. Man I love that movie. Here is a list of other favorites: Road To Perdition, Romeo & Juliet (yes the one with Leonardo Dicaprio and Clair Danes), The Notebook (sue me), The Pianist, Coming To America, Boomerang, The Time Travelers Wife, Short Circuit and A Beautiful Mind.
Have a great Sunday lovers!
