Through My Lens : Recently On Instagram

Instagram Recap

A few highlights of the past month as seen on Instagram which serves as my unofficial food diary and love letter to NYC. I also post quick reviews here and there and try to keep my content unique so it's not a bunch of photos from here. You can see more on Instagram and do follow if you like what you see... I've been using Instagram Stories more lately and sharing things like my new haircut, what I'm cooking, double rainbows, etc. Summer is in full effect so I've been getting out more.

  • I always have to stop and admire the cool winding staircase whenever I stop by Barney's New York in Chelsea. Wearing Veja Esplar sneakers and H&M culottes.
  • I love spotting cool fire escapes which are such a integral part of the urban architecture of the city
  • This simple roasted kale and potato with dijon vinaigrette dish is so easy to whip up and a current lunch favorite
  • Yes there is greenery in NYC and Central Park is one of the best places to go enjoy it
  • I broke my sugar ban for the matcha tangerine swirl soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha which tastes like an orange Creamsicle
  • The Empire State Building lit up in rainbow colors in celebration of Pride Week
  • Jewel box sushi that looks as artful as it is delicious
  • Totally loving my Nike Air Max Thea Flyknit Sneakers
  • Floral beauty in the garden downstairs

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

Happy new week, Rowena. I don't watch Instagram stories as much, so I am afraid I miss a lot of your news. It just isn't always possible, it is easier to look at some pictures.

Was it easy to ban sugar out of your diet, Rowena? I have read the first few days or maybe a week, our body goes a little haywire because it misses sugar.

Happy Independence Day! This is a lovely collection of insta photos. I love that first photo. Beautiful winding staircase.
That shot of fire escape stars is also lovely....they are indeed a signature of urban architecture.
That ice cream looks yummy:).

Oh to Be a Muse said...

I'm not really a fan of creamsicle, but the cha cha matcha part looks delish. And I always love when I see nice staircase shots on IG.

I love these posts, I’m thinking about doing them once a month, maybe a special post on my blog during the weekend. I’m addicted to Sushi and this Jewel box sushi looks amazing.

I know there are so many cool places to look at in the city. I work near the Flat Iron now and this has to one of the coolest parts of the city.

Happy Independence Day to you, Rowena! With the summer arrival, I've been getting out more often too. That Cha Cha Matcha must have been so delicious and the sushi box looks so arty indeed! We had a pride fest a couple of weeks here too. Have a nice long weekend, Rowena! xo

I always enjoy your instagram feed, Rowena! I was looking through my old instagram and realized how much I was enjoying it back then. I wanna get back to it but I should do something different this time.

We wanna try Jewel Box sushi soon and Cha Cha as well (we made it to Cha Cha a few weeks ago but it was the closing hour so we didn't get to try it. ;-( )

That kale & potato salad looks so delicious Rowena. And that matcha/tangerine swirl soft serve looks refreshing :D

Lenya said...

That kale and potato salad made my mouth watering, yummy! Didn't know you are on a sugar ban, Rowena. Good for you. I don't eat sugar, can't stand the taste. Happy 4th, girl.
