Morning Beauty

nullnullnull

Happy Monday, loves! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

I didn't have much on the agenda so the weekend was mine for the taking. Had a lovely Saturday playing tourist in the city again. Walked around the Flatiron district, went to Eataly, ate some amazing Italian food and then headed on over to my favorite place, The Rose Bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel, for some Ginger Fig martinis. Yeah you heard that right. Ginger Fig martini. It's heaven on earth. Trust me. :) A perfect day all around.

Sunday was more about getting things accomplished around the apartment. After a lovely brunch that J prepared, cooking and cleaning took up most of the rest of the day. Ended up finishing out the weekend cuddled up by candlelight on the couch with a bottle of wine.

All in all I'm feeling mighty fine on this Monday morning and I hope you all feel the same.

Enjoy the day, sweets!

Oh, how I love the Rose Bar! Grant and I stayed at the Grammercy for a "city getaway" a couple of years ago...and partly b/c I wanted to take in the Rose Bar. So glam.

Love it when a weekend is so relaxing! Hope your new week is off to as good a start!

It really sounds like the absolute perfect weekend - a little getting out & playing tourist, a little cleaning and accomplishing, and a little cuddling with candles & wine...I can't think of a better way to spend it! :) I got to try out my new beautiful kimono robe especially this weekend, and I'm just adoring lounging around in it's softness! Hope this Monday is an amazing one, sweet friend.
