If You Can Make It There

Pure and I took a week and went to NYC.  Last time we had gone the weather wasn't all that so we decided to take a trip in the spring.  My family is there, and it's always a good time.  This is our week in pictures.  The food in NYC is always a part of the trip.  We had some incredible meals while we were there.  We finally tried the frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity which they are famous for.  All the times I've been in NY I had never tried it.  We tried a new restaurant called Catch in the meatpacking district which we both loved.  The lobster macaroni & cheese was incredible.  We went to our favorite spot in the ABC furniture store called ABC Kitchen.  Everything there is locally sourced and organically cultivated.  They have a rooftop garden where they grow herbs and micro-greens.  If you are wanting to go here make sure you make a reservation well in advance.  Reservations usually take over a month to get for a time that you'll actually want to eat.  My cousin took us to the rooftop of the Pod Hotel which just opened in midtown that was magical.  The food was phenomenal and so was the rest of our trip.........

Pottery Obsession

I'm a little bit obsessed with pottery/china.  I buy vintage jewelry dishes that I have throughout my house, little decorative bowls that I fill with lipsticks, hair ties, etc, unique little tea cups that I love to have my morning tea in.  I love sweet little china pieces.  One of my favorite little places to find bowls is at Anthropologie, and one of the reasons why is Samantha Robinson.

Met Gala 2013 Best of

Photos Via WWD

All I can say is who better to nail the Met Gala's Punk, Chaos to Couture theme then Madonna.  Loving this look from head to toe.  Especially her little pink bound feet.  Fierce as ever in Givenchy Haute Couture.  There were definitely some other honorable mentions below.......
