september 15

Last week I was still running around like crazy trying to find a pair of perfect summer shorts as it was 30 degrees Celsius outside, now suddenly it's all about layers, sweaters and leather again. Couldn't been happier!

Early morning at Flower District

Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream

Van Leeuwen's ice creams are my favourites I've had in New York so far.

They started out in Brooklyn, selling their ice cream out of a truck but now there's already three cafes and six trucks all over the city.

You are most likely to spot their ice cream truck in Soho, on the corner of Prince and Greene street.

I usually never have strawberry ice cream because they're all very artificial but at Van Leeuwen you can expect only natural and the highest quality ingredients. 

This is their cosy cafe in East Village where they also serve excellent coffee and have special weekly flavours. 
Sour cream ice cream with blueberry swirl - ice cream experience I'll never forgot. After having 2 scoops at the cafe, we also took a pint of it home with us.
Also, the Earl Grey was much much better than I ever expected.

Tibi Spring-Summer 2015 backstage

Saturday at Highline Stages for TiBI Spring-Summer 2015 show

Backstage catering here is surprisingly healthy, usually it's just crappy sandwiches and chips. And this Aveda water bottle is très genial - first, it's reusable and when empty you can fold it and it takes less space in your bag.

3 sisters together (almost)

My little sisters sent me over this photo where they're both wearing my Zara t-shirts. Aren't they cute... feeling homesick now.

Nights and Weekends Brooklyn

After a beautiful Sunday stroll at Williamsburg Flea Market we really didn't feel like going back to Manhattan and we had no reason - stumbled upon this very cool restaurant/bar right there. It's called Nights and Weekends and they have such an interesting Cuban, Caribbean inspired menu.
 I wasn't that hungry so I just had something from the appetisers menu: rum soaked watermelon with black lava salt. 

And couldn't resist dessert..  especially when it means ice cream with rum and whipped cream

New York Fashion Week

NYFW Spring-Summer 2015 kicked off yesterday and that means the crazy days doing 10-14 castings are over and spare moments are now filled with fittings and shows. 

For the first show, Tadashi Shoji, I had to transform into pink-barbie-princess.

And a bit of the backstage

Ear Cuffs shot by Yulia Gorbachenko

About 4 weeks ago when I had just arrived in New York, I got some of the ear cuffs shot by amazing Yulia Gorbachenko

Just lots of hair going on here...
