Through My Lens : On Instagram


A few highlights from life recently as seen on Instagram which serves as my unofficial food diary and love letter to NYC. I also post quick reviews here and there. I generally try to keep the content unique so it's not just a bunch of photos from here. You can see more on Instagram and do follow if you like what you see...

  • The lovely floratorium outside Sézane NYC might just make it the prettiest storefront in the city.
  • Leave it to Dominique Ansel to create this fun What-a-Melon Soft Serve which features a slice of juicy, ripe watermelon filled with house-made watermelon soft serve sorbet and dark chocolate chip “seeds” For the record, I might've made my husband eat most of the sorbet and I went for the watermelon. If you share dessert with me, you will get to eat most of it.
  • The neighborhood of Tribeca has evolved so much through the years and definitely for the better.
  • The BBQ at Dons Bogam Black was delicious. The service was stellar and I really like how they grill tableside. Our clothes didn't even smell afterwards.
  • These are the J. Crew pants I was talking about earlier this week. Worn with a pair of Faryl Robin peep-toe wedges that I've had for years. I might have a thing for red shoes.
  • The vegan Super V dumplings at Mimi Cheng's are so tasty. Really must make some dumplings at home soon.
  • Love when I chance upon idyllic moments like this.
  • Hatsuhana's Box of Dreams is every bit as good as it looks.
  • Pretty hydrangeas downstairs in the garden.


    My latest giveaway might just be your answer to good hair days. I've partnered with Formulate to give away a fully customized shampoo and conditioner set. Check it out here.

Dominique Ansel soft serve is definitely on our weekend list! I hope they still serve the classics, because I really love the Burrata flavor and probably want that as well ;p

Have a great weekend, Rowena! <3
