Good morning, lovelies! How is the week treating you? We're in the middle of a heat wave here and the city is brutally hot. I have to tell you that the last place you want to be in the middle of a heat wave is NYC. The heat and humidity is killer!

Lucky for me I'm headed out to Fire Island for the weekend tonight so I'll be getting some much needed relief. I feel even more fortunate because I get to beat Friday afternoon mad rush out of the city this week. Yay!

Hope you all have a wonderful day and stay cool!

xoxo

Can you send some of that heatwave to London? It's chilly here, more like spring than summer. Lucky, lucky you with your Fire Island break. Have a great time darling x

Dawn, last time I was in the city it was in August and there was a major heat wave so I know exactly what you are talking about. There was a stench too. So glad you are getting out of there for the weekend. Where is Fire Island? Hope the weekend weather is perfect for you. xo

Enjoy the beach --- you deserve it after spending the week in the concrete jungle. I remember how hot it could be with all the pavement.

At least it's not raining!!
