Beautiful Life and Style

The one where my boyfriend goes on a cruise, and I stay home with the cats…

1 Comment

In July Nick told me that a few of his friends from work were planning a cruise and he wanted to know if I was ok with him going- I was even invited to come along. Well being the “cool” girlfriend that I am, I was more than happy to say “sure! go! have fun!” and declined on being the one girl on a trip of 4 single guys + Nick (I’ve seen real housewives NY- I hear it throws off the dynamic). Well, flash forward to this past weekend where I was packing up his summer clothing and sunglasses while its 55 degrees outside… When he asked in July, October was a distant thought- there was perfect weather outside- in fact, I think we were at the pool. Needless to say, I’m a little bitter than he’s sunning and snorkeling while I am freezing and at work.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t have a fun week. Actually, sometimes its nice to have alone time. There are so many “distractions” when you live with someone else, that quiet can be a luxury. Here’s my list of things I’m looking forward to enjoying:

1. Going Veg. I could never get away with living a week without meat when Nick is around- this week I”m pulling out the most adventurous vegetarian recipes I can find.

2. Light candles and dance around the house while blasting Florence and the Machine MTV Unplugged CD on repeat. Seriously, I cannot stop listening to it.


4.Finish Gone Girl while sitting under a cozy blanket, and drinking tea

5. Catch up on Gossip Girl. (which I am WAY too embarrassed to watch when Nick is home)

6. Stroll around the city with no agenda- maybe find a new boutique or favorite cafe- I’ll keep you posted šŸ™‚

What are your favorite things to do when you have the house to yourself?
