VLOG CITY LIFE: June 2017 Summer Rain + Summer Table Setting + My Homemade Gluten Free Meals + Adore Me & Kendra Scott Haul

Welcome to this months "City Life" post! For me when the summer starts it is always hard for me because I am not a summer person, like, literally I hate the entire 3.5 months of summer. Its usually the worst time for my allergies and its usually beyond hot and humid so I don't even bother to go outside much. I do however love the summer rain, summer fashion, summer travels, and doing things indoors. This month I was making a slow recovery from being glutened last month on my last night in Sarasota so I have few blog posts and videos.

*I received these products complimentary from Tabbisocks.

Date nights with hubby are always my favorite. One of my favorite dates during the summer is to go to hear live jazz music when Eddie V's has their summer jazz series. I have taken to eating oysters - raw or cooked- so you guys will probably see a lot of oyster photos. The two restaurants I visited have the best oysters in the area in my opinion.

The Oyster Shack- St. Petersburg

Ocean Prime
Eddie V's Prime Seafood

SUMMER TABLE SETTING: So something fun that I like to do is change up my table setting by season. You can find all of these items at Crate and Barrel and these plates can be used indoors or outdoors.

NIMA TESTS: Since about February I have tried to be diligent with testing more of my food with my Nima Sensor. I test food that I order in restaurants, food that is pre-packaged and labeled gluten free, things that should be gluten free and are not labeled etc. I got to try a few new items to test this month since I was not in the mood to go out. I got take out from a new Soho restaurant called Zoe's Kitchen (where everything is clearly labeled) and I tested everything just for good measure.
