Summertime madness… {sponsored}

May has been one of the most rewarding and busiest months for my blog. (And I say that with utter excitement). Under any other circumstances taking on 7 – 10 hour work days would seem intolerable, however with all of the new brands I’m meeting with, online features I’ve been asked to contribute to, events I’m hosting, and partnership I’ve had the opportunity to participate in, I’ve never feel more energetic in my life! I can not wait to share all of these collaborations!

The one tole that these long hours has taken is that on my personal life and workout goals (although running around the city almost counts as a regimen). So one thing I’m committed to this summer is picking up new fitness activities, and spending more quality time with my friends and family.  And I’m kicking off these resolutions starting next week. Smirnoff is hosting a Stir Up Your Summer soiree, where I get to bring a friend for a night of pampering (doesn’t that sound so perfect right now?). Mani’s, pedi’s, massages and a bottomless glass of Smirnoff Sorbet Cocktails. I could not be looking any more forward to this girls night and some much needed relaxing and gal pal time. I’ve also signed up for a 5K race and hope to start training.

I’m also having weekend fantasy’s of laying out in Central Park and wasting the day away and picnicking with friends. Sure, I may be jumping the gun on summer, but only if the weather doesn’t cooperate. On Friday I’m headed to the Hamptons on a press trip (I couldn’t wait for Memorial Day too get the season started), and am excited to catch up with some of my favorite bloggers. Come June I’ll be in Boston for my little sisters graduation party (I can not believe she’s going to college soon!). Last night she texted me dress options for the prom — remember prom?! Oh to be 18 again. My boyfriend also brought up his Jeep up for the summer so I’m very much looking forward to many more road trips and weekend getaways. We’re also currently Vespa shopping as my dearly departed, Lucky (the name of my first LX150) was flooded durning Hurricane Sandy. There’s really nothing like a Vespa ride on a hot summer day, that I can’t imagine going the season without one.
