ny diary part one

1. Central Park
2. Macarons from Laduree. The best macarons I have ever tasted.
3. Meatpacking District wearing a Zara jacket, Zara jeans, Zara boots, and Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Francesca purse. Wore this while strolling The High Line with the boyfriend and eating bagels
4. Ramen from Ippudo NY. One of my favorite places to eat in NYC. Don't forget to get the Hirata Buns. SOOOO GOOOD.

I have so much photos to upload and have yet to do so. Recovering from a wonderful week in NYC celebrating me and the boyfriend's 9th year anniversary by spending it with my baby dog, unpacking, and dreading the upcoming semester that starts on Monday. Luckily for me, I'm only taking 3 classes so it won't be as hectic as last semester.

I've gotten a LOT of questions from a lot of people about the camera and lens that I use (mostly though my Facebook haha). I use a Canon T2i which I have been using for the photos on this blog since April of 2010. Difference with my new posts is that I just purchased a fixed focal lens which is a 50mm f/1.8 lens a week before I left to New York. I love it so much that I'm looking forward to buying the 50mm f/1.4 lens possibly before summer (or in May right before GRADUATION!)

And don't forget! Follow me on Instagram (username: katherinelou) for a more personal and frequent photo updates via my iPhone.
