Photo Journal : Winter Wonderland

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

I've recently come to the conclusion that I love to be in front of the camera (shocker!). Before starting my blog I have never taken anything more than iPhone selfies. I have really come to love taking these photo shoots ! Having the right camera woman really does the trick. Its really important to feel comfortable in front of a camera. On this cold winter day a couple of my friends and I decided to take this cool shoot (literally). Despite the pictures coming out better than I could even imagine, we certainly we through a lot to get some of these shots ! I hope you enjoy this winter wonderland photo diary !

Gusto Grille

As you all know I have a passion for food (good food to say the least). I'm sure you have those restaurant's you pass a billion times but never take the time to actually stop at. Gusto Grill was one of them for me. I went for a cute little lunch date with my long time best friend (who as well has the same passion for tasting new things as I do). The ambiance of the restaurant was certainly exceptional with a classic but modern menu. It was the perfect mix of upscale meets causal. I ordered 3 of their small plates (I love getting multiple smaller plates rather than one large entree, just so I can get a little sample of everything). I ordered the pork belly with sweet potato puree (Pictured). The baked mac and cheese and the crab cakes.

The Pork Belly w/ sweet potato puree: From what I ordered this had to be my favorite ! It was cooked to perfection. Flavored with maple syrup and brown sugar, it was a explosion of sweet and salty in your mouth ! The sweet potato puree was just enough of small flavor to top it off  !

The Baked Macaroni and Cheese: I am such a mac and cheese lover, but this really disappointed me. I was so bland and flavorless. I am also not a fan of breadcrumbs on my mac and cheese. I actually think they took it off the menu since I had gone ! 

The Crab Cake: Now I must say this was a very good crab cake. Nice and flavorful and juicy. I really enjoyed it, I was so sad they were so tiny. The sauce it came with was also really yummy. 

Printed Cape Scarf + Knee High Boots

Sunday, February 5, 2017

Where I live we typically have all four seasons ranging to hot 90 degree summers to 20 degree winters, Jersey has it all. Lately, the weather has been so tricky to keep up with, you never know what type of weather you are going to get until you walk outside. For warmer winter weather like this, I love just throwing on an oversized scarf with a sweater. It makes it so easy to layer up if you're feeling a little chilly or warm underneath. I paired this printed scarf with a solid white knitted sweater, dark denim jeans, and my favorite (and oh so affordable and cute) knee high boots.
