Brooklyn Bridge and Brunch

Did you expect me to go to NY and not have tourist pictures? Here's what you've been missing out on! I've already posted a lot of these photos on instagram. My friend Vivian came to visit me a few weeks ago, and we wanted to have as many adventures as possible while she was here. The way to start your sunday right, is by brunching. We actually had a late start to the morning (I really needed to sleep in!) and this was more of a lunch, hence the full on burgers. But we decided to go to Dudley's right by Chinatown. A very cute spot with outdoor seating, which is my favorite for the summer! With our stomachs caving in, we both ordered the Bronte Burger with some fries, seriously so good.

Afterwards, we decided to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. I've been to New York so many times, but never actually been on it! It was super crowded and so many people were trying to sell us selfie sticks, but it was a nice walk with the beautiful weather.

Little Sweet Thing

Maybe you recognize this wall? Before coming to NYC, I remember seeing this on instagram several times but I could never find out where it actually was! My friend Vivian and I were walking to Two Hands Cafe after I got out of work and accidentally stumbled upon the Little Cupcake Bakeshop. I don't think any other wall could compliment my all-black outfit better! 

This was the first time I'd worn this shirt even though I'd had it for years, I always felt overdressed in it because of the mesh and neckline, but I was able to dress it down with a chunky necklace and sneakers.   We didn't actually get any cupcakes (I'll probably be going back), but we did go to Two Hands which is also all over instagram. They have hands down the cutest little setting indoors! It just screams daydream with the clouds hanging up around the cafe and we ordered iced lates which came in glass mugs (it's actually pretty typical in NY cafes!). I did learn my lesson to not drink any coffee after work because I was up until 4AM from the coffee!

In other exciting news, I just hit 1,000 followers on instagram! I post a lot more pictures from my trip there so if you want to check out more of what I've been doing click here.

Coco Crazy

Have you ever heard of Smorgasburg? If you haven't, you must check it out! It's at Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier. Smorgasburg is spin off of a flea market, but with more than 75 vendors that sell all different types of food! My friend Vivian and I went and explored the area.

You may be wondering where I got a coconut from in NYC? Excel Eatery cuts up the coconut right in front of you to get the fresh coconut water. I've tried coconut water from the actual store, but never liked it because of the weird taste. This is actually more watered down and isn't as bitter, it was perfect for the hot day!

But by far one of my favorite foods I've tried since I've gotten to New York are the Home Frites, I don't want to be too dramatic (because after all, I'm talking about french fries), but these are seriously the BEST fries I've ever had! I don't really know how to explain how amazing they taste, but you really have to check it out yourself to see!
