Blue Box Cafe

Tiffany & Co.’s New York flagship store just opened up Blue Box Cafe, which is a Breakfast at Tiffany’s inspired restaurant, a.k.a–a dream come true. Here you can dine like Holly Golightly and sip coffee (or tea), eat a croissant, while wearing your black evening gloves, diamonds, and tiara.

Yeah, you read that right, Skinny + Bitch = Pizza. This is the answer to all you pizza lover’s prayers who want a “healthy” version, which until now I didn’t believe existed. Skinny Bitch Pizzas are gluten-free, and have a cauliflower crust, they’re made with turkey pepperoni, fresh veggies, skim mozzarella or you can opt for vegan “cheese”. Choose from five types of 12″ pies, like “The Marissa” (my favorite), which is made with mozzarella, tomatoes, garlic, andRead More →

I think it all started with my love for the movie Marie Antoinette. The scene where she’s eating all the desserts, made me want cake, éclairs and macaroons ASAP. I had heard of Bottega Louie, and one day I was walking out of the apartment I had just moved into, and saw it was a few blocks down the street and decided to walk in. OMG…I became obsessed!
