Oh no September already?!
I can’t believe it’s here. The weather in Upstate New York already feels like fall, which makes me a little sad. I’m happy it’s Labor Day weekend though and I will be soaking up the last bits of summer at the lake! This past week was pretty crazy, I made my first trip to Buffalo, NY and then headed to NYC for one of my LA friends’ birthday. It was such a fun night and a definite favorite. Let’s get to the rest of them!
Shockingly as a New Yorker, I had never been to Niagara Falls before this past weekend. I was visiting, and received, the full Buffalo experience, minus the wings unfortunately #notenoughtime. I was able to get out on beautiful Lake Erie and the canals, which by the way, who knew Buffalo was such a hot boating destination?! I will do a recap soon of some of the fun and delicious food spots that I crammed into 48 hours.
The falls were absolutely beautiful though. The whole weekend was a picture perfect weather weekend, which really highlighted everything this part of western New York. The falls were the pinnacle. I was so happy I got to see a rainbow too! (Check out my instagram for the pic) It was my 3rd natural wonder of the world and it was just as amazing as the others!
Oh and as for Tim Horton’s, I’m still a DUNKIN DONUTS girl 😉
North River Lobster Co
Are you heading to NYC soon?! If so you need to check out North River Lobster Co.!
I headed to NYC Monday night to celebrate my friend Stacey’s 30 birthday, who was in town from LA. She had heard about this cruise boat that for $10 takes you on an hour cruise up the Hudson River from the west side. It’s basically a restaurant on a boat with a heavy seafood menu. I had the fish tacos and they were delicious! There are no tickets, it’s first come first serve and the boat holds about 450 people. You want to get there before the departure time so that you are sure you get on. We arrived about an hour before the last departure time and had no problem. TIP: If you get seasick easily, this may not be for you. You can eat/order drinks before departure but it was kind of rocky so I could see someone getting sick from that. Overall it was a great experience and you can make it as cheap as just the $10 fee to sit.
What’s Up Wednesday
I can’t believe how quick one of my favorite linkups comes every month. It was time for another edition of What’s Up Wednesday if you missed what I’ve been up to lately. Like I said, I’m hoping to post my weekend recaps of Buffalo and Portland/Portsmouth in the upcoming weeks!
This is for all my local girls out there! I have gone to Whitney, who is now at this beautiful salon in Albany, NY, since the end of college. She is great with layers and a master colorist! I wanted to give her some love because she really is the sweetest!
Travel Hair Dryer
Speaking of travel and hair, I’ve been trying to find a travel hair dryer that is lightweight and gets the job done (I have a lot of hair!). Do you ladies have any recommendations?! I’m interested in these two off of amazon:
I hope every gets out there and enjoys their Labor Day weekend!
