Sweet Adventures – Shortbread Society

It all started with the salted caramel banana puddingโ€ฆ 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, Iโ€™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 Iโ€™ve tried so far.

Christmas in New York- Christmas Trees ๐ŸŽ„

This Christmas -and the whole December really- has been a complete blur. Happy I got a chance to walk around and enjoy the beautiful ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„ all around. Here are my favorites…

Saw this beauty at Tiffany’s.

Bryant Park’s ๐ŸŽ„.

The beautiful and classic Rockefeller Center ๐ŸŽ„.

Henri Bendel wins for most creative tree in my book ๐Ÿ˜‚. 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 ๐ŸŽ„ at the MET Museum ๐Ÿ˜‡.

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! ๐Ÿค–๐Ÿค–๐Ÿค–

My first stop, Macyโ€™s.

Second, Tiffany ๐Ÿ’.

My first time inside Henri Bendel! That is quite an impressive tree ๐Ÿ˜‚. Too bad they are closing ๐Ÿ˜ž.

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.
  

Happy New Year!

I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a very long time now but I was always worried about what I would write and who would really read it. I finally decided the hell with it, I’m just going to to write! So here I am…

I love to explore new things, new places and meet new people. Culture, art, food, traveling, family and friends keep me going. The idea is that this blog will be my diary of all my daily explorations through life and for me to share my moments with family and friends.

Enjoy!
