the high line

Something wonderful happened last weekend- the sun finally came out! After weeks and weeks of grim cold weather, the clouds briefly disappeared and I spend my Saturday with the sunshine on my face, exploring a part of the city I've never been to- the High Line.  Once an elevated railroad, the High Line is now a public park located on Manhattan's west side. I entered at 28th street and slowly made my way south, stopping for a bit at one of the wooden lounge seating area and soaked up some rays while I people watched. It was a crowded scene as I imagine a lot of people came out for the nice weather. Along the 'park' there are countless seating areas where people read, chatted, ate, etc. It's such a cool place and I am happy I finally checked it out. Also, it snowed again today. Goodbye again sun, for now. More photos…

I'm loving le_yuk's instagram feed at the moment, and her gorgeous images of famous locations throughout Paris. There are so many amazing people to follow on instagram who present such a unique perspective of the world through their images. It's even better when the images are in lust worthy locations like Paris, France.

workout playlist

It has been very slushy and gross outside for a long time, so please excuse my dirty sneakers if you will. Yes, this winter has been quite brutal; with the freezing temperatures and frequent snowfall, a lot of my spare time has been spent indoors. Usually, to get my heart rate up, I go on long walks outside but since this has been nearly impossible lately, I decided to start a trial at a nearby gym. I've been enjoying it so far. My machine of choice is the elliptical and while I am breaking a sweat, I love some good tunes to keep me going. I've complied a list of some of my favorite songs to workout to… no judging ;)

link loves

I've never done one of these link roundup posts but I thought it would be fun to share some things that caught my eye around the web...

Love the campaign the above image is from. Karen Walker used the Kenyan artisans, who help craft pouches that accompany her Summer 2014 sunglasses, as models for the new designs.

I enjoyed reading these thoughts on Beyonce and Jay Z's relationship on the Man Repeller blog.

I am probably late on the bandwagon to Modern Seinfeld tweets, but I had to share because I find it so clever and hilarious.

I think I am finally getting into lipgloss. I picked this one up at the drugstore this weekend and I really like it so far.

I starting following this instagram because she constantly posts the loveliest photos of nyc.

I was so sad and shocked to hear the news of Philip Seymour Hoffman's unfortunate death. He is/was one of my favorite actors. I love this movie and this scene with him.
