Hatsuhana and the Sushi Box of Dreams

I’m very much a visual eater. It’s part of the reason why I love apps like yelp and instagram and how I narrow down a menu of tantalizing choices to that one dish I’ll order. Before I had even heard of Hatsuhana I saw a picture of their highly popular “Box of Deams“ and quickly texted my […]

Lol I always feel proud when I finish a meal that the restaurant didn’t expect me to. Take me soon! I love roe, so I’ll eat all of that, haha :)

And me too! I always order something based on how it looks. Or how the restaurant looks. It’s worked pretty well so far though lol

A French Chateau Fallen Into Disrepair… The Chateau de Gudanes Restoration Project

I stumbled on these gorgeous photos of a French chateau fallen into disrepair and couldn’t help but be drawn in by the story of the restoration project. Chateau de Gudanes was originally built for the Marquis de Gudanes, an influential member of the Toulouse Parliament in the 18th century. The Chateau is located on a ledge […]

Jacob Hashimoto SkyFarm Fortress at the Mary Boone Gallery

I managed to catch a glimpse of Jacob Hashimoto’s 15,000+ kite installation on the last weekend of its opening in NYC. To be honest, I didn’t know much about the installation beforehand, but the moment I walked into the open space, I was amazed at the multitude of colors and patterns, the height and breadth […]

Inspiration Wednesday: A Brooklyn Brownstone

Some beautiful interior photos from a Brooklyn brownstone. I don’t know what I love the most: the marble kitchen, hardwood floors, restored fireplace or beautiful staircase! What would your ideal apartment look like?

The Meatball Shop

Mhm – the Meatball shop has the most amazing mini meatball sandwiches. As I all too often do, I arrived starving and completely over ordered. The amused water unloaded plate after plate of food and even got confused, and gave us more than we ordered ha! I liked the spicy pork and classic beef meatballs the best […]

What A Stoop

Here are the rest of the photos we shot on film. I love the grand brownstone buildings that line central park and especially those with giant stoops. I wish I could afford to buy a building (ha ha)… but until then, I’ll settle for a quick snapshot or two on those magnificent steps!
