past weekend was the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. I shared a bunch of snaps from the event here. I love cherry blossoms so much and decided I had to do cherry blossom nail art for Sakura. Though, I did Cherry Blossom Nail Art last year, I decided to try a different technique, and I have to say, I am quite liking the results. I love the impressionistic vibe.0

this weekend at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. With that already shared and a super hectic work week, there isn't much to report!0
- Went to the lovely Sakura festival at Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
- Started Monday off back in Brooklyn after an Easter weekend in Jersey.
- It's feeling like Spring in the Slope.
- A perfectly random Tuesday night date night at Talde.
- A sneaky lunch at Taco Bell. Despite not being a soda drinker, I can't resist Mountain Dew Baja Blast.
- Long days at work in East Harlem...and Midtown....and the Bronx...
- New teeny-tiny plants I picked up at the Botanical Garden.
Hope you had an amazing week!
Brooklyn Botanical Garden. It is one of my favourite events of the year (some pics from last year here). Though, the Cherry Esplanade was pre-bloom courtesy of this long winter...there were some gorgeous blooms surrounding the Japanese Garden. As I finally convinced Preston for us to get a membership and am addicted to the Cherry Watch, we will definitely be back when the other trees bloom.0

Last Friday, I went to a lovely breakfast at Birchbox to learn more about the brand Liz Earle. My first discovery of the brand was their cult product the Cleanse & Polish, which I received in a Birchbox back in October. It quickly became a favourite and is part of my Evening Skincare Routine. I was so excited to be able to discover more products from the line and share my thoughts with you.

past few weekly updates. I am all for a rainy day of good reads, movies, naps, and pamper sessions. However, I am not too pleased to have to sludge around the city avoiding 4-inch deep puddles. But as the card says, 'April showers bring May flowers', and I am happy to experience this omen of spring.2

Here's to another week.
[Currently Loving: Hot Air Balloon Printed Blouse & Iced Coffee]
[Not loving all the rainy days.]
[Had a lovely morning at the Liz Earle + Birchbox breakfast.]
Wishing you an amazing week!
Smorgasburg in Williamsburg. It's a ginormous food market. We wanted to try a bit of everything, which is impossible, but we did manage to hit up quite a few different vendors.0

here & here). So without further ado, here is a review on the Elf Smudge Pots. There are nine total shades ranging from pearly white to deep blue. I picked up four of them: Back to Basics, Brownie Points, Cruisin Chic, and Poppin Party.2

Spring themed Water Marble last year. So check that one out because it might actually be better. Water marbling is definitely a practice makes perfect type of nail art. And I have been out of practice. Even so, it always ends up looking super cool and different. My first water marble ever was actually with some foil finished Zoyas as well...& yes, you can see that one too right here.0

This week's Seven is highly focused on the weekend. It felt like the start of old traditions thanks to the warmer (though not quite there yet) weather.
[Finished reading Orange is the New Black & now even more anxiously awaiting Season 2]
[Iced Coffee is back as my drink of choice. Stumptown is easily available in Brooklyn,
but it always reminds me of our trip to Portland last year.]
[Hi! We're Preston & Kim, and we love our neighborhood.]
[People's Pops at the Brooklyn Flea]
[Followed up the long walks with some reading time with the little fam.]
[The Food Trucks are backkk! We started with a favourite-Kimchi Tacos.
If you google evladylrebmik & food trucks, there are quite a bit of Seven's with this same view
...what can I say? I love food trucks.]
[& tried something new-Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches.
I got Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream & Coconut Almond cookies. Yum!]
Hope you had an amazing week!

store nail polishes and when the nail polish collection quickly got out of hand it stored extra beauty bits. Over the weekend, I did a desk organization overhaul as my drawer dedicated to office supplies was over flowing. I decided to try the tray as a way to store some of the influx-aka washi & sticky notes.2

Instagram you have basically seen this whole post, but I figured I'd blog about it as I did with Zoya Odette. Basically exactly the same, complete with mani mug shot. Zoya Normani was my other pick from the Naturel Collection.0
