Weekend Recap - Denim and Liquid Gold

Happy Sunday kids. S and I started off the weekend with date night in the West Village. Dinner was a massive flop (Red Farm - overpriced and bland) but cocktails after were a winner - at a tiny, newly-opened French bar/restaurant called Wallflower. Have a look at the menu below - if they take their food as seriously as their drinks, I very much look forward to returning for dinner. 

Los Angeles Travel Diary - Day Three

Our final day in Los Angeles was spent at Universal Studios. My inner movie geek loved all of it, but the thrill-seeker in me was a little disappointed at the lack of scream-inducing rides. We had a fun day in the sunshine, but it felt a little bittersweet knowing that we were hours away from boarding our flight back to sub-zero NYC weather. In any case, the best decision of the day - springing for "fast-passes", allowing us to skip lines everywhere like a boss.

Los Angeles Travel Diary: Day Two

Happy Valentine's weekend! S and I were meant to leave the frozen tundra of New York to another frozen tundra of Montreal but our flights were cancelled the morning of our flights. We are a little disappointed but are making the most of it - House of  Cards, couch-time, sleeping in are all on the books this long weekend.

The persistent cold is getting little tiresome and it seems fitting to post the second instalment to our LA travel recap (earlier posts here and here).

London Calling


Greetings from across the pond! 

I'm in town for work this week and arrived on Saturday morning to a sunshine-filled city (who would have thought?!)

It isn't my first trip to London so I've been skipping the usual touristy suspects in favour of wandering, eating my weight and indulging in retail therapy. 

Highlights from the weekend include: coffee I'm still thinking about at Monmouth, the chorizo sandwich from Brindisa, dinner in the beautiful dining room of Berners Tavern, everything (EVERYTHING) off the menu at Duck Soup,  ransacking the sale racks at COS, and indulging in melt-in-your-mouth rose macarons from accidentally stumbling upon my all-time favourite, Pierre Herme. And it's only been two days.

I'll be posting on Instagram frequently so come find me there this week.
