Summer Planning

I'm definitely a planner. My closet is sorted by colors, I have a list for everything, and I like to have my calendar in order and always schedule things ahead of time. Having both our families away makes it necessary to travel a lot and add to that any trips we take for leisure or work and it quickly becomes a hectic schedule. So what am I looking forward to most this summer? Other than adding more brights to my closet, where do I even start?! We have a few trips scheduled to Puerto Rico, San Francisco, Napa, Boston, and DC but I also cherish my summer weekends in the city relaxing, spending time with friends, lounging in a friend's rooftop and checking out all this amazing city has to offer (which is a whole lot!) 

This summer will bring my husband's and my own 30th birthdays, a few weddings, some girl time with some of my best friends, and a fun summer soiree hosted by Smirnoff Sorbet Light. The Stir It Up event will be hosted at my favorite nail salon - Tenoverten in Tribeca - less than a week from today. This event will be the perfect way to kick start my summer with fruity cocktails and some much needed pampering. 

My favorite summer weekends are the ones spent walking around the West Village and I intend to schedule as many of those as possible. This summer I'm changing it all up and, even though I can already feel my calendar is itching to see what other special events and trips I'll be able to add to it, I'm going to try and not overdo it. I'm hoping that when I look back at this summer I'll be able to recall lots of time exploring my neighborhood and getting lost in the New York City I love so much.  Maybe I'll add that to my calendar as a side note - "Stay in town this weekend!" And stay tuned on Twitter, Instagaram, and Facebook for snapshots of the Stir It Up Event next week - I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!

  10. I love that infinity necklace you are wearing. I'm the same way I want to make plans to leave town almost every weekend in summer but then I have to stop myself and remember all the fun things in town to go to.
