Through My Lens : Recently

October 28, 2013
shoe crush is realized. Since I've been out of my ankle brace, I actually get to wear my Nike Air Pegasus 83's
I won't be running anytime soon but at least I can walk around with slightly more freedom now.
Reorganized the top of my dresser and found that a votive is a really nice way to store all my perfume samples.
I won a set of Heritory catalogs featuring an adorable Lee Seung Gi in a giveaway from Everything Lee Seung Gi.
Made kimbap for a potluck party we attended over the weekend.
Revok x Pose Street Art on Houston & Bowery. This was just replaced by a Swoon x Groundswell installation.
Tristan Eaton's mural of Audrey Hepburn on Mulberry & Broome as part of the Little Italy Street Art Project.
Fall color has been a little late to arrive in NYC this year but it's so pretty now that it's here.
And a throwback photo: Hurricane Sandy hit a year ago leaving behind this view from my apt. and no electricity for a week.

  7. Morning Rowena! Love this kind of post from you, is like to know you better. As you already know, I love your Nike sneakers and I'm glad you are able to wear them. Autumn in NYC must be outstanding, just love the colors of the leaves from your snaps. I'm also curious to taste the Korean dish, looks very appetizing and something I would definitely enjoy to eat. Wish you a great week ahead my dear, kisses! xo

    I have thrown my makeup in a crystal candy jar and also love how it organizes everything.
    I do miss fall in NYC and am really surprised that the colors started changing so late.

    1. Thanks Ali! I hope so! I came very close to buying a ticket this year but I still have to be careful with my ankle so I didn't think it'd be a good idea. You should. It's even more stunning in person.

  51. Congrats on the winning LSG catalogs, I know how happy you must be about that. The votive and the outdoors are so pretty! I've never been to NYC in the fall, only the spring and the cold, cold winter. The kimbap looks delicious, what is the yellow part? I think I can identify the rest. :)

    I love your new shoes! I'm returning the Pumas. They just aren't comfortable for me at all.

    1. Hehe you know I am :) Fall in NYC is one of the prettiest times of the year. That's pickled radish. It's a kimbap essential and what's awesome is that you can buy it pre-cut.
      Thanks, I love them too! Aww bummer O_o

  52. Woahh the mural is so beautiful! I am in love with all the colours.
    And what beautiful pictures, do you mind if I ask what camera are you using?

  59. Oh sweetie, that third to last photo took my breath away! You should make it into a print, I would buy it in a heartbeat! I would add it to the Chrysler Building print that's been proudly sitting on my new desk :) you are such an incredibly talented photographer!
    And how amazing is that idea of storing perfume samples in a votive? I'm going to try it ASAP!
