On My Weekend Bucket List: A Magnolia Cupcake


So yesterday I did some shooting in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and found myself starving. So, I stumbled into a cute little corner place that looked delicious Pies and Thighs. I don’t know if it’s the title or the thought of chicken thighs but it grabbed me. I had to wait outside and found a tiny spot on the bench but man, was it worth the wait. It’s been beautiful out these last summer days, so make sure to enjoy it! I rarely talk about food on the blog but I just have to rave about Pies and Thighs. So I had the Chicken and Waffles. I know, chicken and waffles. Everyone serves chicken and waffles. But they had buckwheat waffles with cinnamon butter and poached blueberries. I’ve dreamed about it ever since I had it.

Anyway, I’m all about grabbing a Magnolia Bakery cupcake (or two lol) this weekend. Have a great weekend!

Absolut Open Canvas Art Event in Brooklyn


Talk about street art. This past weekend I stopped by the Absolut Vodka Open Canvas Event in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where artists Olek, Katsu and others transformed a whole street into an art display. Ice sculptures, knitted bikes, and graffiti filled the street and it was kind of amazing.

It was also really hot outside! Summer finally hit New York and I stayed cool in a white bustier, a white lace skirt and jewelry from various places including I-Ella’s List and Lea Jefferson. Absolut Vodka stirred up some great cocktails and I was able to meet Olek and her friend, the first person I’ve ever spotted wearing the new Google glasses! Check out more photos from the event below.
