Well, well, well. April is finally here! With the days getting longer and the temps getting warmer, it is beginning to feel a lot like spring on the east coast. I’m excited to start spending more time outdoors, seeing the flowers begin to bloom, and shedding some of those bulky winter layers.
So, while I wait patiently for beach season to arrive, here’s how I will be occupying myself this month.
Go: I was in New York City yesterday for a work event and really wanted to see The Vessel, a stunning new landmark that is comprised of 154 intricately interconnecting stairs, totaling nearly 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t really lend itself to walking around outdoors (and you need tickets to climb The Vessel), so I’ll have to add this to my April agenda. I did manage to walk past The Vessel and was able to get a glimpse of it from afar (as evidenced by the photo above). I would also love to visit Hudson Yards, which is right next door to The Vessel, and peruse some of the amazing shops and eateries that are there. Think: Athleta, Cartier, and Coach meets Blue Bottle Coffee, Dylan’s Candy Bar, and Van Leeuwen Ice Cream—to name a few—and you’ll understand why I just might take up residence once inside.
See: I’m not really into scary movies, but I must say, Jordan Peele’s, Us, has really piqued my interest. The Hitchcock-like film that centers around a family of four who are met by their evil doppelgängers, has received rave reviews so far. I’m too terrified to see the movie by myself, so the next time a friend can come with me, we’ll have a movie night.
Try: I tried a SoulCycle class a few years ago, and honestly, I wasn’t a huge fan. But, seeing as I am always looking for a new workout to incorporate into my routine and that they have a location near my office, I thought I would give it another chance. Please send any tips for a SoulCycle newbie my way!
Do: Now that the days are getting warner and longer, I have been taking full advantage and heading to the beach with my Nikon after work to catch the sunset. Not only do I find being by the water very calming after a day in the office, but I love getting to practice shooting with my Nikon. And what could be better than a little sunset photography?
What’s on your agenda this month?
