New York City Eats & Sweets!

31 Mar

As you all know, the week before last I went to New York!!! I hung out with friends, shopped, and ate some really great food! Loads of really great food and sweets! I wanted to share some of my favorite spots with you all, so next time you’re in the NYC area, you too can partake in these delish spots!

Let’s start with the savory stuff. My favorite quick stop salad spot was a place called Chop’t!

IG14They make tons of different salads and chop them all together for you as you watch. Sounds kinda meh, but the salads were amazing!!!!!!

I also really enjoyed this great BBQ spot called Hill Country BBQ Market! I’m not too big on meat, but this place was SO yummy and had a fun atmosphere to boot!  (I didn’t get any pics,was too busy chowin’ down)

Quick Pizza joint in Brooklyn called La Bella Mariella was literally the best pizza I have ever had. The pizza I tried was called the Grandma and it was beyond any pizza!!!! This hole in the wall is easy to miss—-DON’T WALK BY!!!!! You will thank me!

My all time favorite Italian food spot was a quaint place tucked away in Nolita called Rubirosa! Oh My gosh it was amazing from start to finish! Our party had three different dishes and shared a pizza as well as desserts and EVERYTHING was to die for and bursting with FLAVOR! Fresh pasta, delicious sauces, great service, amazing desserts! This is great for romantic dates or just an evening out with friends. I will go back as often as I possibly can when I’m on the east coast!IG8

Now onto the SWEETS! I literally had sweets the entire time I was in the city. If you’re ever in NYC, these places are a MUST!

Momofuku Milk Bar: They have the greatest birthday cake truffles!! I was in heaven!

Ladurée Paris: Let me say that YES this place is totally overpriced! Now that we got that out-of-the-way, let me tell you, they make some of the most delicious macarons I have ever tasted! and many unique flavors as well. You can treat yourself to one sweet treat at a time or build a custom box. They come in a variety of sizes.

Magnolia Bakery: The BEST Banana Pudding EVER! I have no more words- it’s that good! There is a location in Los Angeles as well!

That’s about it until my next NYC trip!!!

Perfect Pink Pumps!

27 Mar

It’s no secret that I love pink!!!!! Pink pink pink pink, everything pink! I know not everyone shares my same obsession with this girly hue and with that being said, I still believe these pink pumps would fit into most wardrobes and here’s why.

* If your pink obsessed, they will only add to your pinkness, lol!

*If you’re not pink obsessed, these shoes are your perfect pop of color! A great way to step outside of your fashion box!

* Love wearing all black? A pop of pink looks amazing with all black!

*Love wearing neutrals? Pink compliments neutrals as well!

*Summer is around the corner and these pumps will go great with your floral dresses and pastel pieces!

If you are ready for pink pumps, these gorgeous snake embossed pumps are reasonably priced at $58 and are available HERE!
