Happy Friday Friends!

I have a full weekend ahead so my favorites are short and sweet today, litter short and sweet…

Chocolate Tour

Speaking of sweet I’m taking a tour of Brooklyn’s chocolate favorites today so if you want a sneak peek of my upcoming post about A Slice of Brooklyn tours then follow along on my instastories and twitter today!

Tea & Mint Combo

So I’ve been trying to decide what to do with all the tasty mint that’s been growing gin my garden. I’ve started to pick leaves and stick them in my afternoon tea, which is delicious I have to say. Does anyone have any other favorite uses for mint, besides mojitos ;-)?

 What’s Up Wednesday

Just in case you missed everything that’s been going on in my crazy world, check out my post from Wednesday!

Hei Hei Pant


I forgot to mention in the WUW post that I’ve been wearing these pants all summer and get compliments everywhere I go. They really are the softest, most comfortable pants I’ve ever owned. I feel like I’m dressed up while still wearing sweat pants lol. The weather in New York has been blah so I’ve worn these at least once a week for the month of July. Unfortunately, the exact ones (update: these are the same but different color) aren’t available online at Anthro but the brand has some other options that I think would be just as comfy!


ADK/Lake George Hiking

Nothing like a Lake George hike in the Adirondacks in the summer! If you are visiting the area soon, check out my guide to hiking around Lake George.


Oh ya and I guess an extra favorite for the week: National Tequila Day was Monday and there is nothing that makes me happier at happy hour than a margarita! or a shot of Tequila 😉 lol

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
