Feasting in Brooklyn....

Thursday, March 6, 2014

Hey guys! Happy Thursday!

Since it's thrusday, I'm going to do a throwback post! 

Todays is a snippet from last October and my first time at Smorgasburg in Brooklyn!!! It's this really amazing outdoor market that has over 75 vendors with some really amazing, fresh, and unique food. I tried some perfect Bite Me cheesecakes, had some of the best pigs in a blanket I've ever had from Brooklyn Piggies and gorged on Takumi Tacos

Here's me with one of my favorites: strawberry basil lemonade!!! If you spent a few dollars more, you got your own mason jar to keep!

The atmosphere was amazing

Here are the Brooklyn Piggies!!! The best thing I feasted on!!!

The most beautiful view of the most beautiful city!

If you get a chance, you should try and make it down to Brooklyn to try the tasty treats!!!! It happens every weekend in two locations: Saturdays at East River State Park—Kent Ave. and N. 7 St. and Sundays on the DUMBO waterfront at the historic Tobacco Warehouse in Brooklyn Bridge Park (this is the one on the Williamsburg waterfront that I went to). They're open from 11am to 6pm rain or shine!!! I highly recommend it for anyone who loves quality food, a great view, and a unique atmosphere!

What's in my Bag!!!

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Hey guys!!!! I thought I'd do a 'What's in My Bag' post today because I finally cleaned it out (there were lots of crumbs, oops!)

Not only is this one of my favorite bags, it's one of my favorite styles of bag. I love totes because they can fit so much and also double as school bags.

This one in particular is the Deena and Ozzy Fortune Cookie Tote Bag from Urban Outfitters. It's a bit pricey ($69) but it's really spacious and a great quality. I love the zippered detail and texture as well.

When I use a big tote like this, the things below are my go-to essentials. I especially love to use this bag if I'm going to be out all day!
