Through My Lens : Recently

A glimpse at my life recently in photos. A visit to the doctor usually isn't so bad if I include a stop at Ladurée. I opted for the Les Incroyables box this time around. Aren't the silver clovers charming? Chocolate Santo Domingo and Rose Bubblegum were the new flavors we tried. The Chocolate Santo Domingo is divine especially if you enjoy dark chocolate. I wasn't as crazy about the marshmallow filling or sweetness of the Bubblegum.
The pretty orchids that we've been enjoying on our dining table thanks to hubby's green thumb and TLC.
My favorite club sandwich in NYC is from Mini Express in the Chinatown Arcade. 
Yes it is a Chinese restaurant and their club sandwich rocks.

Buttermilk dipped fried chicken with a side of garlic kale at Dirty Bird in Tribeca - good stuff!
One of my favorite city walks is across the Brooklyn Bridge. 
This is the almost mid-bridge view looking towards lower Manhattan.
A Missoni-clad replica of Michelangelo's David statue created by Spanish artist Demo 
and designer Luca Missoni standing tall in the Meatpacking district.
This Nora Kogan Loved Ring has been on my wishlist for awhile and it's now mine.
Two small diamonds are set into the other side of the band.
A new fall outfit for Ian purchased at Target. It looks so good on him! Photo to come.
New kicks for hubby and me. We like comfy shoes on the weekends.

Meg {henninglove} said...

yum i want to try one of those macarons right now and maybe a blt will be in order for my lunch today

Nelah said...

Beautiful photos as always Rowena. In your second photo of orchids, the flowers are beyond real. So pretty, your husband must be so proud and he should. I have never tried macarons up until now. So sad, the colors are so cute. Maybe one day when i can find anyone who makes and sells them.

These photos are so nice. Those Laduree macrons are absolutely delicious. Love the ring too.

Sam said...

Yes for sure! another great reason upon my very long list of fabulous reasons I need to visit NYC again. Its incredibly complicated for Safricans to get visas to come to the US, no idea why :(

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

Your pictures are amazing Rowena! Love the ring you got and the food--seriously making me hungry! Hope you're having a great week!

Dancing Branflake said...

Wow! These photos are stunning! Like they're straight from a magazine. So beautiful!

Tami Rebekah said...

such amazing pics!!

jeanine said...

I love those silver clovers on the box! You know, I don't think I've ever had a macaron? Or if I did, I don't remember. That orchid is so pretty as well, it's nice you were able to get it to bloom again.

Yeah, I can imagine the price for that fabric and what the price for the pants would then be. Even with the discount, the prices there regularly make me cringe. I would be interested to see the line though.

I hope that you posting more often is a good sign that you're feeling better!

Jamie lee said...

I have to say you certainly have a Knacfor making photos look beautiful! Drooling over all that food!

Wow, I really shouldn't be looking at these pictures of all that deliciousness... I have not had breakfast (I know, so bad!) and it's no where near lunch time yet (sniffles) The food looks so good right about now. Oh, and all the other pictures were just as lovely, I especially love the outfit for Ian; super cute!
