If you follow me on Instagram, you might know that I've been enjoying the warmth and sunshine in Curacao this week but I also have some photos to share of the gorgeous and rather warm autumn we've been having in New York City like this one of Washington Square Park last week. I'm not going to overload you with a million pics here so to see more, check out my Instagram feed and of course you can also follow if you'd like.
People hanging out in Soho enjoying the weather that felt more like it was September than November.
A brilliantly beautiful sunset!
I usually stop to admire the pretty cups at Maman in Soho. Looking forward to their shop opening up in Tribeca soon.
Blue Ribbon Sushi has to be one of my favorites in Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place.
I was invited to a tasting at La Gringa Taqueria recently and one of the things we tried were these amazing grilled chicken nachos! They actually melt the cheese with a blow torch and there are plantains. These may have ruined other nachos for me. Their burritos and tacos are delicious as well. We ate at their Christopher Street location but they also have a Brooklyn outpost in Williamsburg that has been hosting these cool Friday movie nights which I will have to check out soon cause Mexican food and a movie is my idea of fun.
Behold the Bruffin! A delightful meal in a muffin that combines a light and flaky brioche pastry with a range of tasty international flavor combinations. This is one of Oprah's Favorite Things this year and after tasting it, I can see why. We got to try them at the preview event and also take one home. This had bacon and sharp cheddar and it was very yummy. They have a shop in Gansevoort Market in NYC and you can also gift a bundle to someone special or yourself through Amazon.
Speaking of the Oprah's Favorite Things preview, here's O Magazine's creative director Adam Glassman giving us the rundown.
This month in hauls... I actually qualified for Sephora VIB status this year so of course I had to take advantage of the sale. I picked up the SK-II Whitening Source Brightener Cream that was on my wish list last month and one of the products recommended to me during my consultation, the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector Compact and a few Bite Beauty Mix and Mingle Lipstick Duos. I will be posting some mini reviews of these products on Instagram.
I bought these Chosungah 22 Flavorful Lipsticks in October. You can read my thoughts on them here. I actually love the orange one!
A rare OOTD taken at the NY Library. I probably live in some variation of this outfit during the fall.
