Through My Lens : Recently

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.

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

Mmm kimbap!
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.
Have a great week dear!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

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.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Thanks! They are quite comfy. The city is really lovely this time of year.

Gorgeous pics, I love seeing NYC in Autumn.. Can't believe that pic of the aftermath of Sandy though.. It looks so scary!

Sam said...

Hi doll, thanks for sharing these lovely NYC Fall photos with us, I think autumn must be the most beautiful in New York. Those wall art/murals are amazing, your sneakers look terrific.

Jessica (Coco/Mingo) said...

Great photos, Rowena!! You never fail to capture anything beautiful :) Also, those kimbap rolls looks so delicious, I get veggie kimbap rolls at a place near my work soooo good!!!

Amyboo said...

These photos are so prettyyy.
It's starting to look like autumn here too. Leaves changing always gets me really excited!

jeanine said...

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.

Ana Mascara said...

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?
I'm still looking to find one for myself :(

Thank you so much in advance.
You have a very lovely blog. ^__^

Thanks Nilu!

You should totally go for it :)

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Thanks Jessica! We're lucky there's so much beauty in NYC :)

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Yep one day at a time and eventually I'll get there. Thanks!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Thank you! I used a Fuji X100 for most of these shots and a few were taken with my iPod.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Me too Amy! I bet it's real pretty in London.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

That mural is amazing in person! I used a Fuji X100 for most of these shots and a few were taken with my iPod. Good luck finding a new camera ^_^

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

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

Classiq said...

I've been wearing sneakers a lot lately, especially on weekends and I sometimes don't want to take them off (I like pairing them with a trench and a clutch). Love that photo with the cab!

Jenmarie said...

I love the way the perfumes look in the candle jar! Such a cute idea :)

DC2NYCo said...

Wow! Beautiful photos! Rowena, thanks for being a loyal reader of my blog and your sweet comment. I know I wasn't blogging for some months, but now I'm back with new inspiration.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I know, it's so hard to take them off cause they're so comfortable.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I wish I'd thought of it sooner but I like that it's functional and pretty ;)

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Thanks! I'm glad you're back!

Jo said...

I like to read posts about your life as it makes me feel like I know you better. Glad that you are finally outta the ankle brace! Oh... fall... I always always always love to look at how nature transform during autumn.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I'm so glad you enjoy these Jo. I do try to share myself and my life in these posts. Fall is seriously one of the most beautiful seasons :)

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!
