Artexpo New York

Art shows are always fun. You get to peruse a lot of original artwork and get inspired. I think it’s such a great way to spend half a day on a weekend. I went on Saturday for inspiration and also to stop by my friend Amanda’s mom’s booth – one of her encaustic paintings was on display. Click through for more pics!

Cha Cha Matcha

I love places that are painted all shades of pink. It’s so aesthetically pleasing! I’ve been to Cha Cha Matcha a couple of times – their matcha latte is really good and I love watching the barista mix it with her electric whisk – much more fun than the bamboo matcha whisk I have at home. I don’t know what it is but matcha tastes better when someone else makes it for you. Click through for more photos!

Ice & Vice

This past weekend was the perfect day for ice cream. Stopped by Ice & Vice and got a scoop of the Pickles of the Caribbean (rum, coconut, & pickled pineapple jam) on top of a scoop of 9AM (vietnamese coffee & donut truffle) all on a Chai-spiced dark chocolate cone. SO GOOD!!! Click through for more photos!

Graffiti

One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is hunting down awesome street art all over Manhattan, Brooklyn, and sometimes New Jersey. After a failed attempt at brunch, we salvaged the day by going on a self-guided mini tour of our favorite spots. Click through for photos!

Times Square & Over the Bridge

I’m never at Times Square. I work in midtown Manhattan but never really had a reason to go deep into the belly of the beast until a couple of weeks ago – when we decided to check out the Spring/Break Art Show. Of course, I had to take photos!

Afterwards, Brian and I drove across the GW bridge to visit my mom & sis – but not after stopping by one of my all-time favorite spots in Bergen County: The Fireplace. Click through for more photos!
