The Sunday Post

These posts have been

This whole every other Sunday thing has not been intentional but trying to fit two weeks from 100 plus iphone pics is tough!!

Also my computer has been phasing in and out of Internet so half my posts are lost before saving, WTH!

Catch up time!

Last week I had migraines all week and skipped the gym a few times due to them

My boyfriend came to my office to make me feel a bit better and took me out to dinner

Rosa Mexicano is within walking distance from the office and we go often. I'm going to admit right now, everything on the entree menu is salty to me, but we KEEP coming back!! It's quite a convenient location, and the ambiance is nice.
All my co workers agree about the salt, and the fact that it's over priced but everyone keeps coming back! it's pretty crazy...but regardless we always get the guacamole with habanero peppers ( you have to request it!)
The dessert was not healthy and split between the two of us, you got to live a little!

That Friday (more food coming) my boyfriend requested we go to a place called "Tang" I took my mother here on Mother's Day and snapped a picture of the food. He apparently could not stop thinking about it all week! so, how can a person say no? Lol.

On Friday and Saturday night they have a live jazz band that makes the place more fun

The weather has been pretty strange here. I have seen on twitter and instagram how the rest of world is getting quite a bit of has only come to NY on the weekends. Only weekend sun!!! Every workday clouds, grey, thunder! It's long as the weekend is good right??

The weather has been great enough that I can resume running outside again!

And when it does rain here, you can always find a nice bright spot

Interestingly enough my coffee guy has had some interesting coffee cups for me this week. They always change, I have no idea where he gets them, I doubt he even notices the pictures change all the time.

This week they were picture worthy!

Another interesting sight on the way to work, I've seen this car before. It's quite distinctive. I think the owner lives near my office lol

A colleague in my office has left for a new position so for a few days everyone attended a few going away out tings

1st one was Happy Hour Thursday!

I spent about 4 hours drinking my half cup of raspberry flavored champagne.
(I'm not much for drinking outside social events)

I took her out to lunch!

And on her last day of work, another co worker and I took her for a walk around the city after work and ate dinner

We went to "Republic" in Union Square. I don't recommend this place. The inside is spacious, and the feel is quite young, but the food is quite eh...

But dessert was far better!!

Make your own ice cream sandwhich truck to the rescue!!!
Almond coconut cookie with tahitian vanilla bean center!

Quick stop to the farmers market for the best brownies!!

Later that day I recieved this in the post, so cute!

Saturday, my boyfriend and I went to New Jersey to eat lunch and we got to see the currently under construction new F1 race track they are building in NJ for next year's race

It's still in it's very early stages. Anyone a fan?

Quick stop to the Japanese market. I love their exotic labels

My bright and simple summer outfit

Traffic back home...

Dinner the same evening

Garlic fried lobster!

My boyfriend and I have been trying to eat more mini meals, one of his favorite things to whip up is guacamole

We both woke up bright and early today to watch the Monaco Grand Prix! Did anyone watch it?

Monaco looks quite spectacular...LOOK AT IT!! lol

One of my favorite bloggers actually lives in Monaco, she would be the best tour guide! (her blog is amazing btw!!)

After the driver we were rooting for lost :( we both headed off to the gym

I went to the gym for a few hours to catch up on missing a few days, after I left I felt great! walked two steps and felt like I needed a snack...

Listen to your body, mine said FROYO please!

Looking at this post all I see is food! I actually took more pictures that could have been incorprated but that's what I have been using "Today's Postcards" as. They can give you small previews of how the week is turning out for me! So please do check those out for more pictures from my life and interesting things I see, rather than just eat!

I asked last time, if I removed these posts would people mind, to my surprise many people seem to enjoy these weekly updates. I decided to keep them, but upload a few post cards in between so you can be there the same day it happens. I like them as little breaks between the beauty and OOTD posts.

LASTLY, just wanted to share the video I have been watching all day.
Maroon 5 Cover of Payphone

For those who surivied until the end of this food filled post, I applaud you!


  1. Glad you liked the music and food, sounds like the combo for a great night!

  2. I always leave your posts feeling incredibly hungry. This one's not an exception! The painted car is pretty nuts too...

  3. I love maroon 5 and the cover was amazing. The dim sum doesn't look too bad either )
