Mornings Away: V E N I C E, Italy

December 6, 2016 § Leave a comment

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetVenice has an astonishing palette: pastels mixed with blues mixed with grays. I visited in the cold spring, and I’m now turning to those colors to get me through the cold winter (it is coming, I can feel it).

Looking back, I realize that I only posted photos from Murano & Burano, and Caffè Florian. I left out Venice’s best part: the water. The sinking buildings. The bright, bright blue.

Two Hands

April 8, 2016 § Leave a comment

Some brunch inspiration for this weekend: Two Hands!  I’ve been wanting to try the  popular spot since I moved here, and I finally went last Saturday.

 Two Hands is an Australian breakfast joint (I can count the number of times I’ve used the term ‘breakfast joint. Just once, just now.) known for its charming ambiance (clouds !!!! adorable little hanging clouds!!!) and healthy menu (fresh juices, superfood bowls, avo toast).

Last weekend had a bit of bizarre weather- cloudy, rainy mornings, heavy wind mixed with sunshine,  freezing temps overnight. Aka everything to make my Spring Post look like a cruel April Fools joke…. Brunching here was the perfect choice for an instant boost of cheer.  So colorful and bright. *Scours Pinterest for an illuminating cloud DIY tutorial.*

Everyone always says time moves quickly, but am I wrong for thinking 2016 is moving very, very, verrrrrryyyy quickly? April? Today? Already? Busyness aside, there’s something MAGICAL about the seasons changing.  Every few months I’m convinced the approaching one is by far my favorite, and right now it’s seriously easy to consider Spring time in NYC as being number one.

A few things on my April to-do list: 1. The Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Gardens, 2. Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty exhibition at MoMa, 3. Sarah Lawrence Poetry Festival 

What are you looking forward to most about Spring in the city? Food recommendations with outdoor seating very much encouraged.

 

Weekend ft. Charleston, SC

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetImmediately after my last post it made little sense not to drive to Charleston, SC. It’s a three hour road trip & I haven’t been back since I graduated SEVEN MONTHS ago. Surreal. That place. So special. #JustALittleTooPerfect #JustALittleTooWorthIt . Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset
