3 days of lobster rolls

 

on my free time, I like to write yelp reviews. not those bougie posts that make you think you’re reading an article in bon appetit. I mean posts that are “REAL.” my posts have a little humor, the truth, and of course a little profanity. sorry. Follow this link to my yelp page, and enjoy full reviews of all of the restaurants listed below and more.

It’s been a great summer so far, I discovered my love for lobster rolls and It has taken over my life. So, for the love of blogging, I’ve decided to roam the streets of New York to find my favorite lobster roll.

First up… burger & lobster!

burger & lobster

 

with only 3 items on the menu, everything has to be good, right? If you agree, you must try this place. I think I almost licked my fingers in public.

PRO: AMAZINGGGGG lobster roll. without a doubt, MY FAVORITE on this list!

CON: none, regarding the food… (check out my yelp review and see what I had to say about the service *shade*)

luke’s lobster

 

located right under the Brooklyn Bridge, I figured if the lobster roll at Luke’s Lobster sucked, I would head to shake shack, or grimaldi’s which is around the corner. But, when I saw the line to order, I knew I was in for a treat. I tried the TASTE OF MAINE, 3 half rolls (shrimp, lobster, and crab roll)

PRO: that buttery, crispy roll

CON: too much oregano (but not a big deal)

streets BK

street food, from around the world… this place was calling my name. so many great options on the menu, so for one of my meal options I had the lobster roll.

PRO: the citrus mayo that I dipped every fry in before eating

CON: the lobster roll (*more shade*)

 

Please feel free to add to my list… who makes the BEST lobster roll in your area?!

I am totally obsessed with men wearing espadrilles. I think it’s easy, relaxed, and different. I mean, I don’t know many men who wear espadrilles. I could probably bet my life, if I asked men I know, about wearing espadrilles, 98% probably wouldn’t know what I was talking about.

But as summer moves in at the pace of a tortoise, I love the idea of the relaxed & easy look of a man in an espadrille.

ladies & gentleman… let me in on your thoughts. yay or nay to the mens espadrille?

 

oh yeah… bae is moving to NYC, and one thing I can’t wait to do is change his wardrobe from “ATL shawty” to “I’m stylish, and I owe 75% of that to my girl.”

*he’s going to kill me when he reads that. hehe.

Obsessed with… ESPADRILLES

 

All Black Flatform Kid Espadrille

brand: all black (MUST HAVE)

every summer I find something to fall in love with. in 2014, it was mara hoffman swimsuits, 2013 it was wedge sneakers, 2012 henna, and 2011 fringe, leopard print, and bucket bags… pysch, that last part, I’ve been in love with those things since 1984.

but… 2015 it’s all about the ESPADRILLE!

an espadrille works as a comfy summer shoe, for walking these NYC streets, and rippin’ n runnin’ through summer festivals all the while giving you fashionable footwear.

here are my favorite picks for summer espadrilles:

valentino psychedelic camouflage canvas

brand: valentino

 

mara hoffman jaguar espadrille

brand: mara hoffman

 

 

chloe striped suede fringed espadrille

brand: chloe

 

House of Harlow Carolyne Espadrille

brand: house of harlow

Planning on killing the summer with all of these white numbers.  2 of 3 are already in the mail, and heading my way. You know I love white nail polish, so the thought of that white on white action makes me do a little dance in my head. I’m so excited.

Honestly, I’ll probably only wear the heels a few times, because the A train and 4″ heels ain’t hardly cute. But, I just have to have them.

 

obsessed.

three things I’m currently obsessing over…

 

• smith & cult •

pornathon

porn a thon

 

If I was stranded on an island, and only had one beauty product, I pray it would be white nail polish, preferably OPI alpine snow, but I won’t be picky. After finding porn a thon by smith & cult, I may push the white nail polish aside for awhile. I only need two reasons to love a specific nail polish… one, it must be long lasting, and two, it has to have a cool name. CHECK & CHECK!

I think I’ve worn my hair in the same style for over 9 years. Yeah, that’s pretty accurate. Every once in awhile I’ll add extensions, or highlights, or a ponytail, but the bang and short bob is my signature. SO, this summer I vow to change it up. Although I am a gaudy, bigger is better, hot mess… I’ll start with something simple. Adding a little texture will work. Currently obsessed with a 70’s inspired shag, and channeling Stevie Nicks.

• RIHANNA #BBHMM •

yes. yess. YASSSSSSSSSS RIHANNA. I’m obsessed with rihanna’s new sound and song. Listen to her new single, bitch better have my money. enjoy.

Before releasing the the full #BBHMM track, rihanna offered fans snippets on dubsmash… It’s kind of stupid, but held my attention for a few minutes.

 

Next week I’ll be sharing hair products I’m obsessed with…

stay tuned.
