Rainy Day Sunday
Woke up this morning to a rainy, cloudy day. Although most days I would prefer the sunshine, there is something nice about lounging around on a Sunday and relaxing for a change. I am heading out to Brooklyn in a little while to visit my mom, so it won't be an entire day of lounging but at least I will get my morning fill!
Last week I shot some gorgeous photos at The Mansion at Glen Cove. If you are visiting Nassau Long Island this summer and need some place to stay, this is the place for you. The grounds are gorgeous and they have a beautiful pool patio area where they just launched a new summer menu. While I was there, I was able to sample the entire menu (yes they brought us everything!!) and I would definitely recommend ordering the salmon dish. I am not much of a salmon fan, but they topped it with guacamole and I absolutely loved the flavor combination.
Usually I shoot my own photos (using a tripod and remote), but for this shoot I brought along Amanda Munz who is the founder of the Fashion Foundation. I have mentioned this not-for-profit business before and it is one I am so happy to support. To learn more about the Fashion Foundation, click HERE.
This rain coat is one of the pieces I just picked up from the Fashion Foundation. It was donated by the designer and normally retails for $350 but the Fashion Foundation sells it for $35!!! Not only is this a great deal, but you get a gorgeous rain coat and you support a local school. Good feels all around!!
