As many of you know, I love New York. I had the opportunity to visit recently with a bestie and it was a whirlwind 48 hours in Times Square – Brooklyn. The events included breathtaking views, an amazing production of Wicked, (insert girl crush on Ginna Claire Mason here) quality time, The Most Amazing Hummus from Moxy, chic vibes, confusing subways, unexpected new friends, an answered location prayer and adorbs mini cookie sandwiches. Which brings me to a side point, eat e v e r y thing here! Invest in a solid pair of kicks and you will walk it all off.
My last Brooklyn trip (you can read about it here), waxed nostalgia so I was determined to make it there on my last day. However a 90+ minute exercise in subway navigation, aka train changes, exceptional user error and a v helpful subway conductor led us unexpectedly to charming DUMBO in Brooklyn.
For a Brooklyn fan, DUMBO was the perfect afternoon excursion. The first place I saw was Scotch and Soda, a welcome spot on my fashion grid as I mentally rebooted. I love seeing their product in Art of Style in Raleigh, so it was cool to stop in the actual store. Before I could visit another store, Brooklyn Coffee Roasters appeared on my radar, and I clearly needed a recharge beyond fashion. This coffee house on Jay Street feels like the perfect place to spend a few hours solo, catch up w a friend or two or organizing a group of creatives together. I opted in for the largest kombucha I have seen in a turmeric aloe flavor from Pilot Kombucha. Totally recommend!
Spirits refreshed, my combat boots transported me down the breezy path toward the Manhattan facing waterline. I felt the need to to start a video. You’ll have to check the video here. I was so thankful God gave me a unique memory, something so unexpected and divine.
