1. I spent the morning walking through the flower district and it was such a burst of happiness. Even though peonies were going for $60 a bouquet (!!!) it was such a great way to start the weekend.
2. Obsessing over Gray Malin’s latest Bon Voyage collection. It’s the perfect for the avid traveler, and bonus: all his prints are free framing and shipping this weekend!
3. I’ve been trying some new beauty products this week and been loving this pretty set from RMS Beauty and Laura Geller BB cream for a less-is-more look.
4. With Easter this upcoming Sunday, I’m looking forward to a day spent with friends on our roof and enjoying the sun and some Easter treats! Deciding on baking this gorgeous cake or these donuts for a festive treat.
5. Just a reminder that the Shopbop Sale ends this weekend! With everything at least 20% off, I’ve found a few more favorites since my previous post – hurry up before it ends!
There seems to be a trend to restaurants in New York City these days and it involves one simple detail: everything pink! The must see spots have blown up thanks to decorating in this feminine color, making it Instagram worthy and creating lines out the door. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I’ve rounded up the pinkest spots to stop at for not only a great meal, but the perfect photo as well.
It’s no shocker this spot has taken over Instagram. With only being open a few months, it has taken over our feeds thanks to its bubblegum exterior and everything pink inside as well. Make sure to head for brunch though and try their incredible coffee waffle, alongside your latte served in a pink cup of course.
This healthy diner spot is the place to be thanks to its retro vibes, pink menus and tables ideal for flat lay shots.
The Lucky Bee
For dinner with the girls, there is nowhere else to go than The Lucky Bee. Ultra girlie with its hot pink tables, menus and girlie drinks, bookmark this Asian restaurant for your next Friday night out.
If you’re craving an acai bowl and in need of an Instagram, the pink tables at this healthy Lower East Side spot will help you achieve just that!
Sweets by Chloe
For the girl who has a sweet tooth but needs to be careful about her gluten intake, By Chloe’s bakery is a dream come true. From its bright pink coffee cups and neon signs, make sure to stop in for something sweet after dinner next door.
Cha Cha Matcha
This Soho spot is the it place to get caffeinated and recharge. Pink tables, neon signs and even pink fro-yo pair up in a perfect tropical twist with the bright green accents and matcha tea.
It’s hard not to miss this restaurant in Tribeca thanks to its cheerful pink building. While inside isn’t as colorful, it’s the coziest spot to escape to on a cold day.
Little Cupcake Bakeshop
If you’re in need of pink on the go, fill up a box of cupcakes or other delicious treats in their signature hot pink bakery boxes.
After an incredible meal of pasta and pizza, make sure to freshen up in their signature selfie bathroom thanks to its cheerful pink flamingos all over the walls.
NYC summer’s are no joke and hot, hot, hot! The best way to cool down of course is with a delicious ice cream cone from one of New York’s many ice cream shops around the city. From crazy cones to unique flavors, these are the eight spots you can’t miss when visiting New York City this summer.
Emack & Bolio’s: Known for their insane waffle cones coated in everything from fruity pebbles to rice krispy treats to Oreo’s, this Upper East Side ice cream shop is the perfect place to stop (and Instagram) after a day in Central Park.
KITH Treats: If you’re heading to Brooklyn, turn your breakfast into dessert at this cereal centered spot. The first NYC cereal shop, you can turn any of your favorite cereals into soft-serve, making it the most delicious mix ever.
Chikalicious: I can’t resist a churro, and when Chikalicious made into an ice cream cone, I was there in a flash. This cinnamon pastry cone gives you the best of both worlds, a flaky pastry and creamy ice cream.
Morgenstern’s: With it’s old school soda shop feel, Morgenstern’s is anything but old school with its unique flavors, such as Salt & Pepper Pinenut, Burnt Honey Vanilla and Banana Curry. They also have began a tradition of celebrating Kayne West’s birthday all week long in June with Kayne themed sundaes and flavors, creating hour long lines for the limited edition flavors.
Davey’s Ice Cream: If you’re in the mood for a classic sundae, nothing beats a Brownie Sundae from Davey’s or one of their delicious scoops, all handmade on site.
Van Leeuwen: Even though I love all the crazy ice cream in the city, my all-time favorite ice cream though is the Honeycomb ice cream from Van Leeuwen. And if you’re vegan, they also offer many vegan and lactose free flavors to make sure everyone satisfies their sugar craving.
Eggloo: One of the most Instagrammable ice creams in NYC right now can be found in Chinatown at Eggloo. These Hong Kong egg waffles are filled with giant scoops of ice cream and as many toppings are you want, creating one crazy and delicious cone!
10Below: If you’re looking for an experience while you get your ice cream, head to 10Below. Watch your ice cream be made right in front of you while they mix and roll your creation on an advanced cold plate that reaches temperatures well below -10°F.
I love planning out themed desserts for holidays and celebrations, and one of my favorites is making red, white and blue treats for the Fourth of July. While I’m still planning what will be the perfect treat for during my time here at home, these 8 treats are at the top of my list!
