October Instagram Recap

I had seen this idea on another blog and thought I would bring it over to DBK since I tend to share a lot on Instagram that doesn’t ever make it to this space and I know a lot of my readers don’t cross over to my social media and vice-versa. So, here’s a look at our October through the eyes of the insta’ account!

I tried not to include too many things that were seen here so that you don’t have as much overlap, but no promises that you’ve not seen any of it before. If you don’t follow DBK on social media and you would like to, there are links at the end of this post.

What did your month look like on Instagram? leave a comment with your username and I will hope over and take a look. I loved putting together this round up, it gives a good look at my day to day life and makes me realize just how much I love not only doing what I do, but also capturing and sharing it! Well, my job, my pup, my hubby, living in Jersey City.. you get the idea from the images! I put a little description on all of the pics to decipher what’s going on so if you care to read through you can click on any of the images to scroll through the gallery with captions.

So, how was your October? I’d say, from the looks of it, mine was pretty great!

Making the Most of Winter {Downtown}

One of the easiest things you can do to kill those winter blues is get outside and soak up how pretty winter can make everything.

Winter Series, Walk Downtown 1

I suggest exploring your local downtown, whether it involves skyscrapers or little boutiques, everyone is inevitably within 30 minutes of some variation of downtown. (Cue Petula Clark’s “Downtown.”)

I made P get all bundled up with me and walk around downtown Jersey City. We explored the Newport area, where they have a beautiful waterfront walkway spanning from Jersey City to Hoboken. It is fun to take in the views of the local area, and you get a chance to see your downtown in a new light.

After wandering around the waterfront trail, it began to get a bit darker out and we headed over to the Grove Street area to check out some shops and restaurants.

Many of the shops are not pictured because I was having fun just soaking in JC at night in the winter (swoon), but I did capture a few of the places and had a bite to eat as well.

What is your local city center? Is it more urban or suburban? Have you ever tried to appreciate its beauty in the winter? I strongly recommend checking it out. From my experience, everything is a bit more sparkly. There is just something about ducking into a little shop or restaurant to get away from the cold that is so perfect.

I hope you all get bundled up in your winter gear and go check it out with your family!
