Anyone who is anyone goes into Target for a couple things and leaves with the whole damn store in their shopping cart. And if they tell you otherwise they are lying and I don’t trust them! Anyway on one of my many trips I stumbled across this Coca Cola baseball cap. So perfect to cover my face when I’m sizzling in the sun on vacation. Thank you Target for always having the most random finds and for making me spend way more than intended.
Glutino’s Gluten Free Pretzels are the best pretzels I’ve ever had. I heard that gluten free pretzels are crunchier than regular ones and anyone who knows me knows how much I like a crunch. I had to try them when I saw them at Shoprite.
I was initially looking for a tzatziki dip when I stumbled upon this gem. Artichoke & Jalapeño Dip. It is cream cheese based and is absolutely delicious. Thank you Trader Joe’s!
I was craving a Lobster Roll and a girlfriend at work had told me about Jack’s Seafood Shack in Montclair, NJ. I looked it up and was pumped to check it out. A few weeks went by and completely forgot bout it until I was at the park and it was almost lunchtime when it popped up in my head. I called in an order and head straight there. The lobster roll platters were delicious. It was everything I had a feeling it was going to be. Fresh Maine lobster in a buttered toasted roll, a side of slaw, fresh cut potato chips and a pickle. I will definitely be back.
Driving through town one day, my boyfriend had called and said there is a new boutique that opened and he thought I’d be interested. I passed it a couple times and sure enough he was right. SistersMelesio Vintage Shop known as @smvintage_ on Instagram is a consignment shop with great deals on current and vintage preowned pieces. I bought a shirt that my friend picked out for me and of course I had to buy some incense. If you’re on instagram go check out their page and if you live in the area check out the store!
It was my boyfriend’s birthday and we wanted dinner with a view. The Chart House in Weehawken, NJ was all booked. I was little disappointed but was thankful in the end because we wound up at Waterside in North Bergen where we both have never been. We ordered the Zucchini Blossoms and Bang Bang Shrimp which did not disappoint. For our entrees he had the Pork Chop and I the Seafood Capellini. Let me tell you, it was the best seafood pasta dish I have ever had. The view was spectacular and the vibe was on point. Definitely a place I would return to and recommend hands down.
So in July I hopped on the band wagon and had my first Donavan’s Reef in Sea Bright, NJ experience. It’s a family friendly environment with reasonably priced drinks ($8 for a vodka lemonade). The beach is super clean and its an all around great vibe with nice people. Their snack stand’s menu has a variety of wraps, sandwiches, salads, tacos and much more. I ordered the shrimp tacos and they were delicious. In addition to the perks of Donovan’s, the town’s parking ($1 an hour) will definitely keep me coming back.
