Have A Lovely Weekend!

Kate's Paperie

Today I met up with a dear friend I hadn't seen in four years!  What a day, and what fun.  We went in to a very cute paper store called Kate's Paperie.  I loved looking at all of the stationery and printed papers! Some of the stationery was sold by companies such as Night Owl Paper Goods, which I'm sure you all know and heard of, and another company that's new to me called Bobbin Designs, which is oh, sooo adorable!  Other brands included Cavallini, Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, and Vera Wang.

Sweet Tooth

I have a mad sweet tooth, and of course, I have found a few places that I couldn't resist to stop by any time I dare to walk near.

First, is Magnolia Bakery, which has cupcakes and other yummy sweet treats to die for! If you have a craving for something sweet, this is definitely a place to visit for a cupcake or two... or three.

Next is another bakery, Levain Bakery, known for their 6 oz. cookies.  A few of my dear friends work there, and it's so great to get free treats at the end of the day.  This bakery is also known for beating Bobby Flay's attempt to a "Throw Down".

And last but not least, one of my favorite places to go is the Chelsea Market. The market has tons of little shops to buy sweet treats and healthy treats as well.  Of course, right now, I have the sweet treats on my mind, and the one that stands out the most is the gelato that you can get there.  L'Arte del Gelato-- one word... YUM.

Kaffe 1668

One of the cutest coffee shops ever! My friends and I spent two hours chilling out and chatting it up at this sweet little coffee shop.  I got a latte that was amazing, and of course it's always fun to see the different froth art figures in each cup. They are so pretty it makes you not want to drink the coffee and mess it up, but the coffee is so good you just gotta. I love friendly little sheep that create a theme in the shop. The art work is fun and quirky, by artist Andrew Cherry, a former student of Savannah College of Art and Design.  If your in the mood to chill out and have a wonderful cup of coffee, Kaffe 1668 is the place to go!

New Experiences, New Places, New York

I hope you all had a fabulous 4th!  As you know I am in New York interning for Martha Stewart Living for product design.  My first experiences in New York have been amazing. New York is such a great city, and there is always something to do.  I love exploring downtown to find fun shops and galleries.

This week I'll be posting some of my most memorable and favorite spots that I will definitely be making a second , third, and probably a fourth trip to.

So, for starters, I absolutely loved Purl Soho.  It's the sweetest little shop with beautiful yarns, fabrics, books, and crafting accessories. If you make a trip to New York and you're a sucker for textiles, please go here! It's a haven for the crafters such as ourselves. And if you already live in New York and haven't been, you'll definitely be making trips here all the time! You can also visit their blog, The Purl Bee.
