Joining Club W

On Instagram, I have been seeing a lot of Club W posts, and when I saw that they have a sale for first time buyers, I jumped at the chance and ordered two bottles of red and one rosé for under $30.  They arrived quickly (within a few business days) and you are able to skip months as part of the membership if you do not want to purchase three bottles of wine or more a month.  I have not yet tried any of my bottles, but so far the experience has been good.

The wine came neatly packed in a tote-style box.
My three new bottles of vino: One from the Quiver, Malbec; Sauvetage, Rosé; Chanchito, Cabernet Sauvignon
Newest additions to the booze corner of our apartment.
 These are dangerous times we live in.  Luxury and excess are just a click of a button away. 

Chicken with Crème Fraîche, Shallots, and Parsley

Made a yummy dinner the other night.  It started with some cheese, crackers, and fig spread and then there was chicken, mushrooms, shallots, crème fraîche, and parsley with rice for the main course.

Carbs and protein, is something missing?  Ahh well.

Senior Editor Top

Bought a cute top from Modcloth called the Senior Editor Top. I had to wear a white tank top underneath it, but it's a great top for the office.

That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”

Fabletics Outfit and Rowing

So I bought these cute Lima Capri pants in Moss Camo from Fabletics, and I am totally digging them.  I wore them to my first ever rowing class at Row House in NYC.
On the subway en route to class.

I really feel that badass camo print is perfect for a rowing class.

Trader Joe's Super Spinach Salad

I tried the Trader Joe's Super Spinach Salad for lunch today, and it was yummy! It's definitely my favorite pre-fab salad of theirs thus far. The dressing was tasty, and all of the ingredients were good.

Slacking on Blogging

This summer has been tough, but overall I heart my life.
Enjoyed this yummy flat white the other day after a workout with a girlfriend.
It has literally been months since I last posted on here. I'll just blame it on work, social life, working out, and family. Things have been busy, and I have been distracted. In an effort to make it up to you, here are some random photos from recent weeks (mostly all food):
Had a delicious lunch the other day of tortilla chips, salsa, guac, and a fish taco... oh, the memories.
I love the West Elm on the UWS and really am obsessed with the brandy snifters on the left.  Didn't buy any though, because isn't it a little alcoholic to have a glass for every kind of liquor?  I'll probably buy two anyway as they remind me of Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart in Rear Window.
My husband really loves me and not only makes me breakfast on the weekends, but puts cute pictures in ketchup on the breakfast. 
This was for the Fourth of July.
I am obsessed with Shake Shack's cheese fries.  The little wooden fork is perfection.  We go here way more often than is appropriate, but this was my first time insisting on my own cheese fries.
In addition to working out more, I'm upping my vitamin game with a multivitamin, iron supplement, and b6.
