NYC Sweets: New territories

Happy Sunday! This weekend I finally got to check out New Territories, an adorable Hong Kong style dessert shop on the Lower East Side famous for their beautifully excessive milkshakes. My friend and I went after a disappointing brunch at Poco and while we felt too cold for a milkshake, we treated ourselves to two of New Territories' Bubble Waffle & Artisanal Ice Cream creations. It was delightfully delicious and the dedication to aesthetics was astounding and much appreciated. 

("B with the rose": black tea & rose infused waffle, vanilla bean ice cream, ginger snap cookie, chocolate shavings)

Keeping things cool

Is it still winter? Is it finally spring?? Global warming has made it pretty hard to tell. I'm not particularly skilled at dressing appropriately for the weather but I have learned that the best way to deal with weather as random as this is to dress in layers (groundbreaking, I know). This outfit was warm enough to walk around the city in the morning when it tends to be chillier but most importantly, cool enough to stay in as the sun warms things up. Most importantly, it's cute as hell with its two tier sleeves and its polished, cool neutral look. Keep reading for outfit details!

NYC EATS: Thursday Kitchen

Happy Friday everyone! Here's a long overdue post about Thursday Kitchen, a kitschy little restaurant famous on Instagram for their "adult Capri Suns" and Korean-Spanish fusion cuisine. It's a relatively small restaurant so expect a wait, especially on the weekends. Thursday Kitchen opens at 6pm during the week for dinner and drinks, and from 12-3 and again at 6 during the weekend. We went on a Friday night right before they opened and were able to be seated right away when they opened the doors (there was already a small line forming). Note: Thursday Kitchen doesn't take reservations so the only way to get a spot is to show up early or wait in line.
