Sweet Adventures – Shortbread Society

It all started with the salted caramel banana pudding… my love for Shortbread Society.

Shortbread Society is a ghost bakery dedicated to shortbread desserts via the brilliant duo, Chef Scottish Francis, and his wife, Christine. It operates via pop-up locations in Manhattan, Astoria, Jersey City, and Brooklyn. Purchases can also be made online through Goldbelly and in-person at Butterfield Madison in the city.

I first found out about them via Thrillist; they were advertising the salted caramel banana pudding at the time (Yum!!). Since then, I’ve been a big fan and follow them on Insta (@shortbreadsociety). All the shortbreads and puddings are delicious, def. rich, but just pure amazing. If you are looking to satisfy a sweet craving, check them out. Here are the ones that I’ve tried so far.

Christmas in New York- Christmas Trees 🎄

This Christmas -and the whole December really- has been a complete blur. Happy I got a chance to walk around and enjoy the beautiful 🎄🎄 all around. Here are my favorites…

Saw this beauty at Tiffany’s.

Bryant Park’s 🎄.

The beautiful and classic Rockefeller Center 🎄.

Henri Bendel wins for most creative tree in my book 😂. The tree is made of all different kinds of gift boxes.

This is the beautiful tree at the New York Junior League.

Another classic but one of my favorites, the 🎄 at the MET Museum 😇.

Christmas in New York – Store Window Displays

I love this time of year. I especially love walking around and enjoying the decorations and windows. This year seems to be the year of the robot. They were everywhere! 🤖🤖🤖

My first stop, Macy’s.

Second, Tiffany 💍.

My first time inside Henri Bendel! That is quite an impressive tree 😂. Too bad they are closing 😞.

Lastly, my absolute favorite, Bergdorf Goodman. I particularly like the fact that they played with the idea of using sweets in their displays this year with a gingerbread man window and bakery/cafe window.

Brooklyn Bridge

I’ve been hiding underneath a rock for some time now and I’m finally resurfacing. Had such a great weekend with friends and family. Saturday, I braved the tourists and walked the Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn and back. This is the second time I’ve walked the bridge and I got to say it’s totally  worth it. The sights, the sounds,  and the company, I encourage all my fellow New Yorkers to do it at least once.
