I hope you all had a lovely weekend and an even better start to the week. This week was jam packed with events and eating like most other weeks, but there were a few exciting curve balls thrown in for good measure. I've included a roundup of some photos I snapped during the week to give you a good idea of what went down.
I had to take a photo of my friend and my lattes that we like to get from this $2.00 coffee shop near our office. Everything in the entire store is $2.00 from specialty coffee drinks to pastries and salads. If you are in midtown, message me for the address- it will not disappoint!
Pictured next to the coffee is my dinner from a local restaurant called Mish Mish that serves Mediterranean/Israeli inspired dishes. This dinner was too good to be true and I can't wait to go back to try more items on the menu.
My cousin Barbara participated in the town-wide garage sale which was coupled with beautiful weather and quite a good profit turned. I've become somewhat of a right hand woman for her sales and I enjoy it most of the time when it turns out well! HA!
On Monday I was fortunate to attend an event put on by a dear friend of mine Lynette Lewis. She hosts a quarterly event called "Love Your Life" in New York City geared towards women of faith and business. It was a great event and pictured was my plate of food of course. They put on an impressive spread!
My cousin Rachel invited me along with her high school friend to an off-broadway rendition of "A Clockwork Orange". She was sure it was not my speed, but I actually liked it. It was very strange for sure, but I liked the music and the "fighting" scenes, which were more like dancing but really poetic fighting.
Another plate of food, but my go-to brunch meal, avocado toast with poached eggs. Rachel and I had a lot to celebrate and decided to go to The Elysian Cafe in Hoboken.
To finish of the week, I was asked by a good friend of mine to make cupcakes for a bridal shower I was attending, and that she was throwing for her sister- who also happens to be my good friend! I jumped at the chance and made mini vanilla buttercream cupcakes. It was a gorgeous shower and an even more beautiful day celebrating the bride and groom.
I hope you all are well, and I look forward to sharing with you again next week.
