Over the weekend I went to brunch with my aunt to Barawine. There’s nothing like a bottomless brunch to start off the weekend and the beauty of living in New York is there are bottomless brunches everywhere. That day we decided to keep it local and stay in Harlem.
The food at Barawine is really good. I started off having the brie cheese tart which was delicious but not very filling, and after a few mimosa’s we needed more food so we ordered a charcuterie plate. One of my favorite things in life is a cheese plate with different meats and fresh bread, not the best food for my waist but nothing in life gives me more pleasure (aside from shopping).
One of my new year resolutions is to make more of an effort when getting dressed for anything, being married you get lazy (well for me anyway). When I was single I went out more, I went shopping more and I dressed up more, but since I got married I have gotten quiet lazy. Not on purpose but I think once you start putting on a little relationship weight whether it’s a new partner or you get married you become content, you no longer feel the need to spend a lot of money of things like heels because you hardly wear heels anymore. I used to go to a club, bar or some kind of social event every weekend, and sometimes weekdays but now I go out maybe once a month if that (aside from after work drinks, I still do that often). So with that being said, I decided to make more of an effort when getting dressed. Even if I am wearing something casual I am going to make sure I at the very least have some great accessories or a new lipstick.
To the women out there in a relationship, buy the heels and the bag and do something nice for you. It’s important to stay fabulous even when you have a man. Maybe we don’t go out every weekend any more but when you do go out for a friend’s birthday or to brunch or even date night, make sure you make the same effort you did when you were single. To the ladies that manage to keep your bodies tight and look amazing when you’re in a relationship or even after having children I salute you….Im working on it.
