Hello friends, and Happy Friday to you! The first full working week of 2014– feels like quite an achievement, no? I hope you’ll all be kicking back with some friends and some drinks tonight, I know I will be!
Because of my less-than-stellar blogging performance last month, I’ve got a load of back photos to share, from mini-breaks to London brunches and everything in between. I thought I’d start with a few more of my trip to New York City in November 2013, particularly, of a lovely Sunday morning spent in beautiful Brooklyn.
I’m a big fan of Brooklyn, ever since I first visited the borough in 2001. My cousins had recently moved there, and though things were happening (the odd cool vintage shop or sweet little restaurant), it was nowhere near as happening as it is now. I mean, “hipster” wasn’t even a thing in 2001!
A big group of us (all in town to celebrate my best friend’s birthday, if you remember) met for brunch at the laid-back and delicious Hope Garage for Bloody Marys, doughnuts and some delicous food (as the lone vegetarian, I was the only person in our group of 12 who didn’t order the famous chicken and waffles). Afterwards, us girls split off and went for a stroll that took in vintage shops, foodie ones (those aforementioned cousins of mine now own Whisk on Bedford – it’s amazing and you should definitely go), jewelry (I got myself some Catbird loot, oh yes I did) and everything in between.
But mostly I just enjoyed hanging out with my friends, on a beautiful day in one of my favourite cities in the world, snapping pics as I went. Life is really awesome sometimes, isn’t it?
On that note, have a fab weekend everybody! x
