Canton Gourmet

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

I am a huge foodie and nothing gets me going like authentic Chinese food. The BF and his family have been going to Canton Gourmet for years and it has easily become one of my favorite restaurants. 

Canton Gourmet uses a fried onion topping on many of their entrees and it is delicious - it's what makes the restaurant fabulous. It's hard to say what my favorite item is from the menu because everything is amazing. The fried shrimp, in particular, is impeccable. Not only does it come with the fried onion topping but the batter they use to fry the shrimp in is beyond tasty.

Writing this post has made me hungry! I can't wait until my next visit to Canton Gourmet

Bath & Body Works

Sunday, January 25, 2015

Some of my favorite things to post about are family, food and items that I love. For Christmas, my aunt bought me a collection of delicious smelling lotions and sprays from Bath & Body Works

I fell head over heels in love. 

I left the cranberry set she purchased for me in Florida and I did some of my own skincare shopping to stock up my New York City apartment. I was particularly drawn to the Endless Weekend scent and the Twilight Woods fragrance. Bath & Body Works is constantly having sales and I was able to purchase a large amount of items for a great price. The thing I really like about Bath & Body Works is that they make various products in the same scent so you can smell consistent.

When I returned home from my skincare shopping the BF said, "you smell like a sorority girl. I like when you wear more sophisticated scents". Well, you know what I say to that? Thanks for the advice but I love my "sorority girl" smell.

I am a huge fan of Free People. Back in 2013 I shared my love of Free People's pullovers with this post. I hate to create a deja-vu moment, but here we go again! 

While in Florida I saw a woman wearing Free People's Sunrise Pullover. I am an avid waffle tee wearer and I gravitated towards this thermal. Free People is a great store because they often carry items in multiple colors. I am a firm believer in purchasing something in multiples if it's a staple item.  I tried on the Sunrise Pullover in white and I loved it. The tee is incredibly comfortable and long. I particularly like long tees because I can wear them with jeans and leggings. The best feature of this thermal is the open shoulders - it makes the top look sexy. 

I fell head over heels for the Sunrise Pullover and purchased it in both charcoal and white. The white tee is the first item on my packing list for my upcoming vacation to Hawaii - it's the perfect comfortable shirt for a long flight.

The Four Seasons

Sunday, January 18, 2015

Seeing as it's Sunday, I felt it was only appropriate to post about brunch. One of my family's favorite places to brunch is the Four Seasons Hotel in NYC. The food is delicious but it's the ambiance that really places this restaurant in a league of it's own. The restaurant is beautifully arranged with trees encircling where you eat. The service is also impeccable. Even though we weren't staying at the hotel, the environment made it feel as if we were on vacation.
