Since joining Instagram, I find that I've been taking more photos and using my phone camera more often. Being a bit of a photo purist, I haven't really been too interested in using filters or changing my photography style. This is just a small selection of photos I've posted recently. I don't like to overload my posts with images cause I personally feel inundated after about 10 or so and just lose interest. To see more, please visit me on Instagram. You can find me at @rolalaloves. I've been really appreciating the view uptown from my building lately. The Empire State Building was lit in blue and white pinstripes and blue and orange in honor of the Yankees vs. Mets Subway Series. They would dedicate the lights to the winner after each game. This is how it looked after the first game. Let's say this Yankee fan was happy.
It took awhile but it's finally starting to feel like Spring in New York City and everything is blooming. It's really such a pretty time of year and if my allergies weren't going crazy I'd probably be taking more photos but I have managed to capture some of the cherry blossoms downstairs.
This could be my Spring uniform - my favorite trench coat and one of my many striped tops.
A few new additions to my closet. I actually own a good deal of color so I kept is it neutral. The text on the t-shirt says "I don't like you." in French which my husband says is kind of perfect for me haha.
I usually plan ahead with what I make for dinner but sometimes I just wing it with things I have in the refrigerator and this rice noodle dish sautéed with broccoli, red pepper and organic pork in a black bean sauce was the result one night. It was delicious and I will be making it again.

BBQ at Miss Korea
Sunset on the Hudson River as seen from Brookfield Place. Such gorgeous colors!
A quiet morning on Doyers Street in Chinatown. Took this one on my way to the post office. This street was filled with revelers from Vogue's Met Gala Pre-Party the other night.
A close up view of the Empire State Building when I was in the neighborhood.
