A single succulent in a small terra cotta pot sits on each of the hi-top tables. There are two thin, windowsill bar tops and a largely open, clean space with brick walls. The setting is very urban industrial with contemporary vibes. The skylight up above let’s in a beautiful amount of light (I’m obsessed with natural light). It’s a mainly black and white aesthetic with the main way-back wall being a shade of Pepto Bismol pink. I had a Pepto Bismol pink wall in my college townhouse so I felt some weird connection to this room and wall. There’s an open back room with the huge coffee grinder machine (?), which I have no idea what it actually is… troubling. On the barista counter, the coffee grinder is bright pink and the espresso machine is a bright cobalt blue that reminds me of a car from the 1950s.
That unknown machine is loud in the back – sounds and looks like an industrial size vacuum. Whatever it is… It smells awesome in here. I can’t quite focus on anything aside from that noise so maybe this is not the best for concentrating or bringing your laptop. Although a man across from me is doing that.
I’m sipping on a coffee milkshake, which was $6. I would have paid $10 for it because it’s really good. But that’s just because I’m feeling generous today. Milkshakes are my favorite drink too. They serve bialy’s from Roberta’s (a local restaurant in Bushwick that’s super hyped for their pizzas).
Currently in Bushwick – where the cool kids live. Supercrown is probably a really cool date place if you’re the type that dates during the hours of 7AM-7PM. But weekends are an option. And coffee is always good. Back to date night, avoiding alcohol on dates is interesting and challenging so this could be a cool option. Although I’m pretty sure they make alcoholic coffee beverages – which could be a bonus. Lots of cute people are waking by the storefront. And in and out as I’m sitting here. There’s a guy at the bar right now that looks like a mix between Justin Timberlake and the oldest bully brother from from Home Alone. “Buzz your girlfriend, woof.” Weird mix – I know. That’s Brooklyn for ya.
FYI – It’s 11:15am – why did I just drink a milkshake?
1. How to NOT Look like a Hot Mess Don’t rush into work every day. Leave earlier so you get there on time. Wake up a little earlier. Take an earlier train or subway. You’ll look well-rested and prettier to people passing by when you’re leisurely walking instead of running like a #crazybetch.
2. Officially switching over to hot caffeinated beverages as of today because I like to make weird rules for myself like that. But really, just so I can break them.
3. The best box to ever receive, ever.
Relax, it’s nail polish. I know… this color is a fantastic red and I’m obsessed.
4. P.S. Dept
An iPhone app established in 2012 that’s your personal shopper – it does the research for you. Text it what you’re looking for and a real-life store employee comes back with options at various locations. You are able to simply add to your cart & check out. The personal shopper takes care of it, sends a receipt & gets you on your way! Simplicity. Awaiting my newest addition coming from LA – check back!
5. Life looks better in black. Much better. Black sunglasses. Tom Ford sunglasses.
Replacement for my Chanel’s. RIP
I keep things black & white. Mostly black.It looks better. Sometimes red.
OOooooffff. It’s Monday night of Labor Day weekend. Tomorrow (or today – depends on when you’re reading this) is back to work, back to school, back to the “grind.” Summer is “over” although Indian Summer seems to be in the cards. Silver lining to going back to work tomorrow —– 4 DAY WEEK!
September is one of my favorite months, and this is just a special time of year for me. I get quite nostalgic thinking of first day back to school and the weather and getting back onto a schedule. Back to reality. I’m quite a realist although I have severe idealistic tendencies.
Here’s a few things I’m feelin’ right now…
Hope this random crap helps you get through your Tuesday morning! Remember you only have 4 days until the weekend. Love today! xx
“get naked, get dirty, get rough, get clean.” is the hot slogan of this sexy and clean skincare regime. frank is a coffee scrub that’s made in 2 formulas: “original” and “coconut & grapeseed.” I purchased the coconut & grapeseed formula because I’m less partial to orange (original).
Frank is natural & vegan and is known for scrubbing away dry skin, moisturizing, cleansing & clarifying. Frank is the man! He targets cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema and acne. What more can you ask for in a man?!
Frank is made from ground Arabica coffee beans, cold pressed sweet almond oil, sugar and sea salt. They all have amazing healthful qualities and will 100% change the feel of your skin.
After using frank – I found that my skin was extremely soft for days on end! Definitely smelled like a latte after getting out of the shower! Whether you like the smell of coffee or not, you’re going to LOVE what frank can do for your skin. Plus it’s fun. 🙂
