Scenes from New York

Happy Monday! I had a great weekend – hope you did too. I spent Saturday in NYC where I met up with a friend for brunch, so I thought I’d do a photo essay of my Manhattan stroll. The weather was a bit chilly and overcast, but that’s how I like it. Nothing beats strolling down a quiet city street in the early morning with some clouds rolling above.

I started out in my old neighborhood, the Upper East Side.

Great quote I found outside of a church on 86th street.

I FINALLY stopped by Laduree. Every time I try to go, there’s a huge line outside, but luckily not at 10:30 in the morning. I haven’t had a Laduree macaron since I was in Paris.

I got Pistachio, Strawberry and Lime-Basil macarons

I made my way down to SoHo where I met my friend for brunch at David Burke Kitchen.

The weather was not as nice as anticipated so I had to stop and buy a scarf from a street vendor but it worked out since I had wanted one with skulls for a while now.

After brunch I just happened upon a Dwell Studio sample sale and scored some great toys for Lady M!

My final stop was to the Little Cupcake Bakeshop where I picked up some treats for myself and The Husband.

All in all it was a fantastic day in the city!
