These cookies totally lived up to their hype! We went to both Levain locations (the 2nd just 2 blocks north of the 1st). I have been going through cookie withdrawals now that I'm home. I even tried a copycat recipe that turned out pretty good!

Chris Eddleton -- Drums "It is a glorious melding of hip-hop, soul, and other black creative musics and so funky that the sweat of JB and King Sunny water this flowering garden of collards. It don’t get no better...or realer.” – KUCI Radio “Rivers on Mars’ debut album Deja VooDoo hits pockets and locks in a groove with an irreverence 80s Miles Davis would have liked. "Xenobia" smokes, "Geechee Pimp Strollin'" is nuts, but my jam is "Broken Country."

Celebrated 5 years of living in this city with the girls on Saturday.
Riding the subway downtown, I was in my head about things, when I recognized my reflection in the window on the other side of the car and realized younger me would be celebrating the ‘mundane’ things I don’t even give mental space to anymore. She would be jumping up and down..why was I just counting the number of train stops left? (Bc I was painfully late 🙈). To tell her that I got ready in my Manhattan apartment, wearing designer shoes and new dress—of course 90% off retail 🎉—heading to a rooftop where great girls were excited to celebrate life with me. Wearing a watch from my brand new job in SoHo, and the list of little things goes on.
This is not to brag but to do the opposite. I don’t give conscious thoughts to all the good things and blessings when I should. How many other good things am I skipping over on a daily, or *hourly* basis?
In the next however many years in this city, I don’t want the memories and good to blur. I want it to be like tasting ice cream for the first time ever. I can’t even remember that, but that was probably the best day of my life up to that point. More savoring, less simmering.
Don’t forget about the fundraiser that is coming up! The mission of Restore NYC is to help end sex trafficking in NYC. .
1 in 200 people live in slavery. An estimated 403,000 people live in trafficking situations in the United States. New York City serves as a gateway and is one of the LARGEST destinations for trafficked women.
From May 1st to May 15th, this fundraiser will help support this amazing cause. Every purchase made will help support Restore NYC. My goal is to help raise awareness and of course money for Restore NYC.
I was born and raised in NYC. When I was about 12 years old a man tried to trick me to turn around and get close to his car by saying that I dropped my keys on the ground. I knew I had my keys in my hands, I was taught to use them as a weapon if necessary so I always had them out and ready. I kept walking. Before I knew it, the man moved fast. He cut across a park, in broad daylight, and approached me. I froze, a deer in headlights. G*d was with me that day because a postal worker was by the mailbox collecting mail and sensed something was wrong. He acted like he knew me well and asked about my mother. The man quickly left and I ran home as fast as I could. .
I don’t know what his intentions were but they obviously were not good. I was lucky that day, but many others aren’t as lucky. Let’s help this foundation as much as possible so they can help those who have been affected by trafficking. .

On my way to work, I couldn’t resist from taking a picture of this magnificent building on the Upper East Side!
Described as one of New York’s grandest townhouses, this 1903 Beaux Arts mansion is a landmark with over 15,000 square feet of space on six luxurious levels!
It was originally designed and constructed by John H. Duncan (the legendary architect of Grants Tomb). If you happen to be on 62nd street between Madison and Fifth Avenue, I would strongly recommend to check it out! #newyork_eyes #architecture #realestate
The curiosity that these two had with the fake, but very real looking like chicks (thank you @amazon) was adorable, yet every time I look at this image it reminds me to stay curious, question those around me, and take risks (just pick up the chick!) I guess that’s the beauty of photography - an image that appears to be so simple can mean so much more.
