Simple Pleasures


I have to admit that it took about a year of adjustment before I truly became accustomed to New York. It’s crazy expensive, teeming with people, and incredibly fast-paced, so while it took some time to find my niche (although does one ever find their niche in the ever-changing NYC?), I’m now content with my surroundings, and more importantly, am adept at the city’s subway system. This past balmy weekend I revisited a few of my favorite areas in lower Manhattan, ending the day with dinner at The Spotted Pig-who cares about a one-and-a-half hour wait when they’ve got shoestring fries? While streets were a bit less crowded thanks to the end of tourist season,  I have to admit that that’s one of the highlights of living here-seeing the raw excitement of those exploring it for the first time.

Union Square farmer’s market.



One of the sites I visited on my first ever trip to NYC. Three years later, it’s emblematic of my time here.


A Marc Jacobs Beauty billboard in soho. About time Marc lent his talents to the makeup world! Really lusting after this nail polish and soothing lip balm.


The East River Ferry-by far my transportation of choice :)

A week-long visit back in Michigan meant a requisite trip to the cider mill I’ve been visiting since I was in utero.


My big kid back-to-school purchase: Ultra-femme Tory Burch calf hair flats.


Dainty deskside accessories to brighten even the most banal of tasks.

  1. Spotted Pig is amazing. Every time I am in from Montreal. I go there. It’s my favorite joint in NYC!
