Pavan lunch.

The luncheon that I had with Pavan liqueur the other day was SUCH a treat! I felt like a total queen on the top of the Refinery hotel sipping delicious Pavan sangria. Which by the way is simply some Pavan liqueur mixed with sparkling water with a few fresh berries! Perfectly refreshing! Pavan is great because it is comparable to wine in the sense it is made with grapes which gives it natural sweetness.

We were treated to a three-course meal. I chose the lobster roll for my main course. I am seriously obsessed with seafood. I was greeted with a pleasant surprise when I sat down at the table… I was sitting next to Kate Nash! When she introduced herself to me as “Kate” I was feeling a little weird because I obviously knew her from somewhere… duh! I was so happy to get to chat with her. She is seriously so sweet! She was also wearing the cutest little Miu Miu heels.

I wanted to let you all know about the contest Pavan is currently holding on Facebook. The prize is a trip to France! Click here to enter.



Weekend fragments: brunch edition.

I am huge on breakfast. I have to eat breakfast every day, regardless if it’s 8am or 3pm, I can’t miss it. I have tried practically every brunch place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I think I may have a couple still to try.

These images are from yesterday’s brunch at Sweetwater. Their two egg special for $9 is my second favorite breakfast, because of its price and it fills me up and doesn’t leave me feeling grossly full.

The brunch at Cafe Mogador (which they just changed from $9 to $10) is #1 in my book. It comes with two eggs any style, home fries, delicious toast, a cappuccino and an orange juice. I was sad to see they raised the price though. If there was a punch card for their breakfast special, I could have probably filled 20 by now.

I really miss Longman & Eagle in Chicago and Toast in Ferndale, MI. I feel like there are still so many brunches to be had in NYC though!

Brunch with Pink Clouds

Yesterday I was invited by the lovely ladies of Pink Clouds vintage to attend an adorably delicious brunch, followed by a vintage shopping spree at the Manhattan Vintage fair. It was so much fun to hang out with the other bloggers and Jennifer Collins! She is such a sweet person and her love for clothing is obvious as she explained her business and ideas behind Pink Clouds.

Pink Clouds is not only there to provide a storefront with amazing vintage pieces, but they also strive to learn the back story behind the pieces and exactly where they came from. I would love to know the history of the vintage pieces I own!

I wore a Forever 21 daisy print dress over a white blouse from Romwe for the day. I was definitely feeling my cutesy side coming on while I got ready for the fun activities ahead. For shoes I wore my comfy Dolce Vita booties and topped the look off with a hat from hats.com.

Hope you are all having an amazing weekend! The sun is certainly shining bright over New York.
