This summer, I traveled and ate my way through Boston, New York City, and San Diego.
Boston Done Right: Paul Revere, Cannoli, MIT, and the Charles River
Sights of the City: Times Square, Taxis on 80th St, View from Empire State Building, Downtown Manhattan
NYC Eats: Shake Shack, Chelsea Market, Momofuku, Doughnut Plant
Peaceful La Jolla
Purple Ombre Cake – Check!
Kolaches – Check!
And I spent valuable time and made amazing memories with my friends and family. Even though I was working everyday, this was actually one of my most fun summers.
To express my summer blues (and match my blue floral dress), I did a variation of blue ombre nails. I was inspired by this nail design from Miss Renaissance. I had slightly darker shades of blue than she did, but they worked well.
Although I’ll miss the laid-back, relaxing vibe of summer with the sunny days (well, only after the fog has burned off) and the rather peaceful feel of campus that comes with the absence of undergrads, I’m looking forward to what this new school year brings. Fall semester is always a fresh start for me – it feels more like New Year’s to me than January 1st. With a new season comes new friends, experiences, and memories. So, even though I’m a little sad to see my summer end, I’m excited to see what fall brings. Plus, I’ve been dying to make some pumpkin and apple desserts!
