Weekend Trip in Montauk

This past weekend I went to Montauk for a little weekend trip! I stayed at Gurney’s Montauk Resort, which was so beautiful and beachy. The beaches in New York are so much fun – people are there to hang and enjoy! Feels a little bit more like vacation since it’s not something that they get to do year round like us Cali peeps. The food at Gurney’s was INSANE… the restaurant on site is called Scarpetto and I ate SO much last weekend just due to the fact that everything I touched was literally the best meal of my life – ha!

Another great place to stay is at the Surf Lodge, it’s such a cool hotel that’s right on the water and I stayed there last year with Maison Margiela for their Replica Fragrance pop-up during my bday – so fun!  Ruchmeyer’s bar is also a cool bar to hang at, because it’s like a summer camp vibe with lots of different rooms, dancing, and outdoor games. If you ever visit Montauk – these are the three places I recommend most!

Another reason why I love this area is that exactly a year ago to the date I got my first tattoo “take aim” while in the Hamptons. I was lucky enough to visit the area twice last summer and this trip in particular was with Revolve and I was so excited to get my tattoo done by Jonboy. He is such a cool human being and his love for Gucci exceeds anyone I’ve ever met. I love how dainty all of his work is. I never thought I’d get a tattoo until I saw his work and it just felt like something I could put on my body for life and feel like it represented me well. I chose the words “take aim” because it’s kind of been my anthem these last six years to never stop believing or trying.  I have had some ups and downs but I’ve never felt like there wasn’t a hope to grow and believe in something better. Whether it’s your faith, your family and friends, or your passion for life – we all have a reason to keep trying and pushing ourselves to be better and do better.

Do you guys have any tattoos?! What do they mean to you?
