Snowed In

Hello from this crazy Canadian snow storm! I would be home the week Toronto gets hit with a storm, but I am not even mad about it – I haven’t experienced being #snowedin in such a long time and it gives me a good excuse to whip out my Roots Cabin SocksSorels and good old Canada Goose. I swear this is the Canadian equivalent to the USA's basic North Face sweater, leggings and Uggs combo but... I don't care.

I definitely consider this blog to be more travel themed than fashion themed (I am by no means a hardcore fashionista), but there are some winter pieces I simply can’t live without and I thought I would share them with you today in the spirit of snowy Canada. 

So first things first, as mentioned above, I could never get through winter without my Canada Goose.  Might be kinda mainstream I know, but this jacket has not failed me for five years. FIVE years (!!!). It keeps me warm and is 100% worth the investment. Same goes for my Sorels – I recently got a new pair (kicking myself because they just went on sale) but my old ones also lasted around 4 years-ish. The style I am wearing is called the ‘Whistler Mid Boots’ and they keep my toes warm and dry all winter long!

I really don’t know how people dress up in -20 to go out (with friends, family, date night, etc.) but I seem to always gravitate towards the classics: high waisted jeans, black bodysuit and heeled booties. I realize I’m not the only girl that wears this combo but it’s yet to fail me. I have three pairs of jeans that are always on rotation: Rag & Bone 10-Inch Capri with Slit (I’ve raved about these in a previous post), Levi’s Wedgie Icon and Levi’s 501 Skinny. I really don't even bother with other brands or styles anymore as these three keep my bum happy...

In terms of bodysuits and long-sleeves, I get the most of mine from Forever 21. My favorite leggings to wear during winter days are from NikeAdidas (the Original Three Stripe), TNA or Armatura which are a small UK brand I discovered whilst living there. The leggings I am wearing today are from Nike and they have the logo in metallic on the bottom. I found them for 20 bucks in a Marshalls in Florida but sadly can't find them online anywhere - these, however, are super similar and very fitting for a snow day!

Where To Eat In Dumbo

It’s officially been five months since I’ve moved from Europe back to the US, and I finally feel like I have started to settle in. New York just feels so much busier than London or Berlin, and at first it felt quite hectic living here. Every time I move I feel like I am starting over – new friends, new flat, new city – but I am so excited for what 2019 will bring! I’ve begun to plan a few trips around the US (I can’t wait to explore more!) and also a couple back to the EU, which I will of course share with you all here.

Since I work in Dumbo I’ve managed to try out a bunch of different restaurants in the neighborhood! I wanted to share my top 3 favorites with you – these are definitely ones to try next time you are visiting the city.

#1 Cecconis

Cecconi's is honestly one of my favorite restaurants, hands down. The decor, view and food are all amazing. They also have one in The Ned in London which is soooo dreamy and the best date night spot ever. So go to Cecconi's if you're in NY or London!! The Whipped Ricotta with truffle honey and crostini is seriously what dreams are made of.

#2 Sugarcane Raw Bar

Sugarcane Raw Bar comes in at a close second. They have this Maine lobster BLT sushi roll that is unreal and their dessert menu is so good.

#3 Juliana's Pizza

I went to Juliana's pizzeria this past weekend while my parents were visiting the city. It was a 45 minute wait to get a table, but if you are big time craving authentic pizza it's worth it. The #6 with guac was our favorite!

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her

Whether you're in a relationship or not, Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I've gathered my favourite picks for you to spoil your besties, send to your man (hint, hint) or to just plain treat yo self. While I'm still a big fan of flowers on V-Day (or any day, really!) having a few of these items at home wouldn't hurt too. Ok - now I am completley in the mood to run a bubble bath, get cozy in that heart-shaped sweater and drift away on a silk pillowcase!

'Chill' Card (I love sloths!)
