Tasty Thursdays: Sanctuary T

Thursday, August 07, 2014

Last week, I had brunch at Sanctuary T, an amazing eatery in SoHo. Pictured is their country breakfast, an omelette, and Spring Spritzers (green tea, lemonade, mint, and seltzer/club soda). Soo good! The service was extremely friendly and with large open windows in front, it gives a great view for people watching in the neighborhood.

Great Gatsby Bachelorette Party

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

This past weekend was my friend Susie's bachelorette party. It was Great Gatsby/1920s themed - which made it a lot of fun to dress up. I went to the DreamDry to get my hair done with retro waves, and I wore my fringe + lace skirt from Ann Taylor.

We started dinner at Barbetta, the oldest restaurant in NYC - it was so majestic inside, with a stunning outdoor garden. I only wished I took more photos. The food was a little pricy, but it was certainly delicious. Our original plans included stopping by Dear Irving, a speakeasy, but it was packed so we headed over to a wine bar (Cibar), where we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Definitely a more private environment, which was nice.

Summer Tempest

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Summer Tempest event, showcasing a bunch of great designers. My favorite was definitely Estuaries Swimwear. I met these ladies at a Lucky Magazine event a couple of years ago, and just love what they do. Their pieces are so chic and functional.
Guests were also able to taste the Mango Fruit Punch (a more herbal taste) and the Shooting Star Fruit (sweeter taste) teas from David's Tea. I went for the Shooting Star Fruit, and it wasn't too sweet but perfectly refreshing -- definitely a nice treat since it was hot and humid that night.
An interesting brand I found was Pysis. These are over boots you can wear on top of your heels when it rains. It protects your shoes and eliminates the hassle of changing into flats/sneakers. It's a quick fix and definitely a cuter way than putting on those plastic bags!

All About That Bass

Chrome Forged Rubber Factory

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Last week, guests & customers were able to witness these amazing Chrome Forged Rubber shoes being made on this 70-year-old Slovakia Forged Rubber machine, which was originally used to make army boots in Europe. One shoe at a time, it was pretty cool to see all the pieces put together.

I've been into lighter colored shoes lately, so I picked out these light gray ones. Extremely comfortable and so well made!
