Looking Back

Summer has come and gone so quickly. These past few months have been full of travels, adventures and new experiences. I couldn’t have asked for a better time. Even though I am sad to see these summer months go, I am definitely getting ready for the upcoming fall. I have this giddy back to school feeling inside but instead of buying new notebooks and binders, I’m ready for a wardrobe change. I’m also feeling re-energized for the next four months of 2015. I’ve loved writing these Looking Back posts – it gives me an opportunity to not only reflect on the past month but also reflect on what’s upcoming too.

Here are a few tidbits from my Instagram from August. I’d love to know what adventures you have in store this fall!

Music Thursday ~ No.12

It has been a great couple of weeks – consistent c’est moi natasha posts, great runs, the routine of buying groceries (I really need to start packing lunches again) and the overall feeling of productivity. I’m proud to say I cleaned out my closet the other day since September is fast approaching which made a world of a difference & also made some space for fall favorites.

Of course, as always, thrilled that it’s Thursday and ready to get the weekend started! What are your plans this weekend?! I want to take advantage of the warm weather before the coldness creeps up but I hear it’s raining this weekend so a trip to the mall might be in the works….

Have a wonderful Thursday!

PS. Did you catch last week’s Music Thursday post?

Music Thursday ~ No.11

Getting back into the groove of things has been a bit tough…. my mind is still in Ios and in relaxation mode. But with fall coming super soon (my favorite season), I can’t wait to start getting back into more of a day to day routine. To help me get back into the swing of things, my friend Michelle has an awesome Spotify playlist that I can’t stop listening to – Jammies 2015. Gooey has been one of my faves and as you probably already know, I love discovering new music. Happy Thursday, it’s almost FRI YAY!

Happy Summer! As July has come around really quickly, it finally feels like summer is here! Everyone seems to be in the mood to run outside, invite people over for BBQs, drink margs on rooftops and lay outside by crystal blue pools in the Hamptons. And it is all a very happy feeling indeed.

This long 4th of July weekend was really great – I explored Manhattan since it was absolutely empty which was heavenly. I was able to get a 7:30 pm reservation at Santina, a new restaurant in the Meat Packing district, where 7:30 pm is a time that usually needs to be reserved months in advance. I’ve been dying to try this new, hip place and let’s just say it was absolutely delicious. I also walked everywhere all weekend which felt amazing and I was able to finish week one of marathon training! Let’s just say July has started off on a very positive note. In just a few short weeks, my big summer trip to Greece is coming up and I am beyond excited. It will be a very interesting atmosphere because of recent political events but nonetheless amazing as it always is.

What did you do this past weekend for the fourth of July? I would love to hear about what you were up to! Here are a few of my favorite Instagram snaps from June – if you don’t follow my adventures yet, be sure to do so @cestmoinatasha on Insta!
