Beast Coast, Part II: Coney Island

I've always wanted to go to Coney Island. Okay, maybe I've only wanted to go since I saw Uptown Girls, and then especially after I found out they had a mermaid parade, but either way, I was shakin' in my platforms excited. We rode on the Wonder Wheel, got fries from Nathan's, and took photobooth pictures. It was humid, greasy, wonderful, and tacky.

Beast Coast, Part I: Manhattan + Brooklyn

At the end of July, I took a trip over to the (B)east coast with Olivia Dean and Elyse Kern to have some fun in New York before heading up to Rhode Island for Newport Folk Festival (to be posted about later on). I already miss New York so much. I really wish I could visit once a month.

After a hard day of shopping in SoHo, we ate at one of our favorite Manhattan restaurants, Mudspot in the East Village (try their avocado sandwhich!) then hung out for a bit in Williamsburg in the evening.
