Through My Lens : Recently On Instagram


A few highlights of this past month as seen on Instagram which serves as my unofficial food diary and love letter to NYC. For more, click on over to Instagram and do follow along if you like what you see.

  • The streets of NYC are just so picturesque this time of year
  • Poké is my new obsession and it's even better when there's toro involved! Chikarashi does it right and they just happen to be a short walk from our apt.
  • A taste of Christmas in June while checking out the QVC holiday preview and a little OOTD peek.
  • This YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture in I'm the Excited, a brilliant emerald green is making me appreciate colored mascara all over again.
  • An absolute beauty of a bloom in the garden downstairs.
  • Donuts are not something I have often since I don't eat sugar. When I heard that Doughnut Plant was making savory ones, my interest was piqued. This avocado toast doughpod was so good. I'm trying the samosa next time.
  • My favorite skirt and sneakers of the moment.
  • We dined at Takashi with friends some years ago and I even posted this Dine Out review on the experience. We kept meaning to go back and finally did last week. This tasty Gyutoro Temaki Sushi was one of the things we ordered. That's raw chuck flap hand rolled sushi.
  • Hanging out on the High Line at sunset.

Happy Independence Day to everyone in the US and a happy new week to everyone else!

I like the definition of an unofficial love letter to NYC, as my Instagram account seems to be my unofficial love letter to Sofia. I like your feed, as it is always various and the quality of the photos is great. Those sneakers are so nice, and the last photo of NYC at sunset is my favourite! Happy Independence Day Rowena! xo

I have the YSL mascara in black and it's really good! Have the tendency to go clumpy if I layer too much but other than that, it's really good.

Have a great holiday today. I love eating avocado toast, but have not had it that way. Sounds delicious. I'd probably go for the samosa, since I love eating and making Indian samosas! Would it be like a samosa doughnut? :) /Madison

Lovely images! Happy 4th of July!

Ivana Split said...

absolutely perfect snapshots....it is so nice to see them. I really like the one with the two of you and your sneakers (and that denim skirt you're wearing looks really nice, today I bought the perfect denim skirt, it took me a while to find it but now I'm all happy about it). Those dishes look very very yummy....and I love that shot of NY.

Happy fourth of July!

Wish I could say 'I don't eat sugar' as well. I'm making a conscious effort to reduce it but it takes planning and thinking!

Your NYC photos are always so resplendent and give me serious wanderlust pangs.

I started watching Masters Sun and LOVE it. You should definitely give it a go. I'm finding it seriously more hilarious than scary though the first episode I did jump once or twice but once I got used to the "ghosts" they don't really bother me anymore. Then again I'm the type of person who can't watch horror anything when it messes with your head with things you can't see and emphasising so with music and sound effects. And this show isn't one of those so I think you'll be right. But I totally recommend this one! I think I've loved this the most (out of the two K Dramas I've watched lol)

Ysl mascara in emerald green? How beautiful! I've only ever considered wearing black mascara before. You have a very, very lovely Insta account, Rowena.
