“Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower”
The sun’s been making it’s appearance more and more, and the days are getting longer. I’ve been taking as many opportunities as possible to get outside and enjoy the warm weather, sunbathe, and grab brunch outdoors.
One of the things I crave most when Spring arrives is fresh flowers. Like clockwork, the moment I feel Summer in the air, I am drawn to the florist down the street and I go crazy buying colorful bouquets. I really like mason jars, and I found a cute white one at Fish’s Eddy in Flatiron that I’ve been using as a vase. I try to keep fresh flowers on rotation each week in the warmer months, they brighten up our living space and smell do good!
I also checked out a super cute brunch spot called Sweet Revenge, which I absolutely loved. Sweet Revenge is the only restaurant in NYC with a cupcake, beer, and wine bar all under on roof – talk about indulgence! There’s nothing not to love about cupcakes, cocktails and brunch together with a cute and quaint ambiance. Their menu contains sweet and savory items, as well as special wine pairing recommendations for each of the desserts on the menu which I thought was really cool. My friend and I shared the Savory Oatmeal Skillet and the Dulce de Leche cupcake with peach bellinis. We were in heaven.
Minnie’s been loving the sun, too – she could lay out all day. In these photos, she’s wearing her colorful chevron collar from ShihPooLover designs.
