Mini Grilling


It really feels like summertime in NYC. There's that certain smell, and I always sleep differently in the summer...waking up at odd hours to turn on the air conditioner. But this is still my favorite time of the year, even though I'm gross and sticky half the time. It's both leg and barbeque season and I could stay on my friend's rooftop in Brooklyn forever, overlooking the crazy city I call my home. This evening ended up with my friends and I covering just about everything we were grilling with pure barbeque sauce...that is, before we realized how good it would be to eat sauce straight from the bottle. Oohhhh, summer nights, you're going to rock.

Oh, I love grilling and leg season! I love Summer time. It's always so special, lots of sunny days, not much clothes on, sandals/ flip flops, tons of watermelon and ice cream, beach&swimming... I'm all into it :)
Great tank and bracelets!

Loving this summer weather! Walking around in the city is difficult though when you get gross in 2 seconds. I'm sticking to tank tops, cutoffs and my little denim vest.
