NYC Part 3: Central Park

I totally forgot I had these pictures! After a few shopping days, it was time to take a break from crowded shops, loud sirens and people bumping into each other at Times Square. Where better to relax than in Central Park! We bought some delicious bagels and snacks at Whole Foods Market and sat in the sun watching all kinds of people. Ooh I miss such days now that I am back to work.... Have a great day!

Taco's at Tacombi

Drop immediately what you are doing if you like taco's as much as I do. This is the best place in NYC to eat them! This restaurant, which actually is a garage, is called Tacombi at Fonda Nolita and the atmosphere is amazing. Everything from the VW van where they prepare the food, till the brick walls and it's paintings is phenomenal and I did not even mention the taste of the food! Delicious! I highly recommend this place if you are in this lovely neighbourhood!

NARS Beauty

In the NARS Cosmetics store on Bleecker Street I wanted to buy the most wanted blush ever; Orgasm. While browsing around, the lovely employee showed me this limited NARS Domination Cheek Palette and I was immediately sold. This four-pan cheek palette contains Orgasm blush, Laguna bronzer, Mistinguette blush and Devotee highlighting blush. I know that NARS combines orgasm and laguna more often in such palettes and therefore this cheek palette may not be really of interest for those who already have their share of NARS products, but for me, a NARS rookie, it is just perfect!

NYC Part 2: Brooklyn

This was the first time I visited Brooklyn. Although it was a short visit, I immediately loved this neighbourhood! It was so quite and peaceful, there were bikes and lot's of green. Next time I want to explore this area more. Lunch took place at Grimaldi's, the popular pizzaria where also Frank Sinatra was a regular customer. After a delicious pizza it was time to walk the Brooklyn Bridge which was shorter than I expected (luckily). It looks like the photo's of the Manhattan view are photoshopped, but this was the real view, I think because it could rain every moment. Of course I had to add a pic of NYC's most famous inhabitants; a squirl! haha

New Coffee Table Items

How is everyone's week going? I'm back in my daily routine and honestly it feels quite good, but I still wish I was strolling around NYC of course haha. However, with these two new coffee table books I can still walk around NYC in my mind. I found these books at a lovely bookstore in Chelsea Market. They had a great selection of books about New York and I wanted to take them all! The amazing smelling candle I bought at Anthropologie in Chelsea Market as well, what an awesome shop is that by the way! Have a great first day of October!
