Last month I was invited to my first Yelp Elite Event. Ever since becoming a Yelp Elite Member in October, I was seeking to finally attend some of their great events. One was ice-skating in Prospect Park, which I missed out on. Another was the opening night of a restaurant nearby, which I was also unable to attend. Read More »
Today marks the day that I quit drinking one month ago. It’s been exactly 4 weeks since I downed my last cocktail and my last glass of wine and vowed to stop the binging for the next thirty days. And it’s been quite a month, I dare say! Why did I do it – why did I stop drinking? There are several reasons as to why I had enough of alcohol. Here we go: Read More »
Went to a coffee shop today. It was so amazing that we did half a photo shoot over there…
After a week-long sickness (A cold? Or a flu?) I felt like leaving the house again just for fun again (and not for work). I first got a new haircut in Greenpoint and then wandered through McCarren Park to Williamsburg, where I met up with a friend for brunch. Brunch was Southwestern Style biscuits. Read More »
After our shopping and exploration tour we were finally ready for the beach. And boy was it hot that day! I forgot about those dog days which usually happen end of July through beginning of August. During mid-August they were certainly still around and it was a welcome change to hop into the water and cool off. The beach itself had a small wooden path leading to the sand. Read More »
Last month I had the chance to take a quick beach getaway with two of my friends. We decided to venture out to Fire Island – which is part of Long Island and accessible only by ferry after a certain point.
It wasn’t my first time on this island, as I had gone to the Pines back in 2011 (check out the full story here and here). Read More »
The very next day I paid the British Museum a visit. Just from the outside, as I already had been inside before. From here I strolled through Soho and Chinatown, the latter which I had been looking forward to returning to, since it’s quite picturesque and pretty. Read More »
My first Eurotrip of the year is already two months ago but I forgot to mention my stay in one of the greatest cities of all: London!
After being to the Brit Capital in 2011 already (read more on my first adventure here and here), I had always wanted to return and give this fabulous town another chance to catch up on some of the things I missed out on. Read More »
After the epic South Iceland adventure and two full days filled with an exhausting schedule (read more here, here and here), it was time to relax. And what better city to do it in than in chill Reykjavik?
Since I had already explored it during my stay in April 2015, I knew what sites I wanted to check out (again) and which ones I needn’t see another time. Read More »
A great restaurant closed its door at the end of March of this year. I didn’t know up until a week ago, when a friend and I had wanted to seek it out again. We had spent some amazing happy hours over there last winter and were one of the few people Read More »
It’s the beginning of July and our New York summer is in full swing. Not only have we had a few of our first heat waves, but beach season has officially started four weeks ago and the parks are being continuously over-crowded with picnics, birthday parties and sunbathers.Read More »
This summer has manifested itself as a newcomer in many ways. One of them being a new creation of the bakery world: The Cronut is a mix between a croissant and a doughnut and has been invented by Dominique Ansel. Trademarked this past May 2013 (which is about 5 months ago), it is still a […]
