Trying New Things

This was definitely the wrong week for me to have to deal with this summer heat! It was my first week working out of the new office and I’m still in the process of figuring out and getting used to the new commute. I really don’t remember the last time I had to walk so much on a daily basis! The heat wave this week definitely didn’t help.

This weekend was an eventful one. Of course, the JT and Jay-Z concert ¬†was the highlight. It was my first time at the Yankee Stadium and I realized that it was my first time ever having dinner in Washington Heights as well. Growing up in Queens, there really aren’t many opportunities for me to go into that neighborhood. I’m glad that the food at El Malecon was not a disappointment. After dinner, we headed straight to the stadium for the show. We waited about an hour and half in the heat and then the show finally started. I don’t think there were any notable surprises but nonetheless it was a good show!

Of course, manicures are always a part of my weekend. The stripes and hearts design is what I’m currently wearing. The one below that was a quick manicure that I did last Sunday night. It actually didn’t look as great photographed but I really loved that design. I think it resembled French manicures a little bit.

On Saturday, I also decided to get a long overdue pedicure. I tried a new salon in Astoria after brunch and I really can say that it was one of the best pedicures that I’ve ever had in my life (and I’ve had a lot of pedicures). The chair was a massage chair (a good one too) and the manicurist was very thorough and gave really good massages. After a week of constant walking in the heat, my feet really deserved some pampering! All in all, this was one awesome weekend – it was eventful but not the exhausting kind :).
