The past week has been crazy. Last Friday was just…emotional, to say the least. I skipped everything I was supposed to do that day in order to lay around in my Victoria’s Secret Pink and go out for some retail therapy. The only good thing that came from Friday? I finally got that YSL orange lipstick I’ve been wanting! I feel like it’s the only red/orange I can wear with my bright hair without looking like a five dollar hooker.
Saturday was a day of indulgence and gluttony. It began with brunch at my favorite spot, Cafeteria ofcourse! then a much needed nap before dinner at the fabulously fancy Giovanni’s on the Upper East Side. I had a four course meal, including picking off of everyone else at the table. the favored dishes? My appetizer of baby artichoke hearts with pistachios, Anne’s appetizer of rissotto topped with black truffles, Eliza’s roast duck, raspberry sorbet, and ofcourse, the tiramisu. We went through three delicious bottles of wine, as well as being treated to limoncello by Mr. Giovanni himself. But seriously, the tiramisu is to die for. If you ever have the funds or opportunity to treat yourself to Giovanni’s, please try this dessert!
Sunday was another day of indulgence, as well as retail therapy. I began with brunch at The Viceroy on 8th and 18th, which I’d never been to before. I left with a new favorite brunch spot. Mimosa’s and bloody Mary’s were only $5 with the purchase of an entree, and my entree, stuffed challah french toast, was a pallette pleaser.
The cinnamon sugar coated granny smith apples truly made the plate. The fresh fruit and melon on the side was a nice touch as well. Shopping went as planned, and I spent a good hour in All Saints in SoHo, falling in love with spring time dresses and swimsuits. Sadly, I’m not too keen on their bikini bottom fit; I feel it is only purposed for tanning and lack of movement.
Dinner was eaten at a unique Williamsburg sushi house called Sapporo Haru. It became my favorite sushi spot a few weeks ago when I noticed their extremely low priced miso soup and their sweet potato tempura rolls, another must-try.
And well, that was my semi-unfashionable yet delicious weekend. I ate my feelings and am now fully paying off with tight jeans for my first week of my new job.
