day in our lives | hoboken, nj

Two California girls who are used to driving everywhere, walk 12 miles around Manhattan then the following day see that there is a 100% chance of rain.. there’s no option but taking a “chill” day to allow our shin splints a day to recover + hide from the rain & just stroll around the cutest town of Hoboken.

When you think about it, one of the best & most admirable qualities is taking those unexpected plans/conditions & instead of getting bummed, making the best of whatever the day throws you! That’s what we did- we found the joy (no pun intended) in the situation and ended up having one of the best and most relaxing days.

We started our day off nice & early (noon is early right?) & decided that we could not miss out favorite meal of the day, brunch. We went to Bluestone Lane, a super cute coffee shop + restaurant with delicious espresso & even better brunch. Plus, if you love superfoods, turmeric, & gut cleansing latte’s- this is the place for you!

Joy’s Meal: Avocado Toast + Iced Chai Latte (one of the best we’ve ever had)

Justi’s Meal: Sweet Potato, Tumeric, Hummus Toast + Ausie Latte (it has ice cream in it.. like what?)

Dessert: Homemade Banana Bread

Hands down, one of our favorite places! Super cute interior, delicious food + coffee, & an amazing atmosphere for meetings or working. If you have one near you- it’s a place you have to try!

After our delicious brunch + getting some work done, we decided to walk around Washington Street & do some shopping + sight seeing. There’s nothing we love more than all of the amazing homes & small town feel that Hoboken has!
