Women’s March on NYC A Sincere Thank You!

Yesterday I was surrounded by positivity, empowerment, passion, support, and some AMAZING women. According to The New York Times, over 2.9 million people marched yesterday in solidarity with women--on all 7 continents. I have never been surrounded by so much love and pride in my entire life. Yesterday was a manifestation of hope and was a chance to show how far we've come and how unwilling we are to take steps in the wrong direction. The march was filled with strength from experiences of our past and strength in our dreams for the ...

Food & Fashion  Ruby’s Café and a Red Lip

My roommate and I recently headed to Ruby's Café for lunch and then stopped at the New York Public Library. At the first aforementioned location, I ordered an ah-mazing salad with a soft boiled egg on top which is truly the perfect addition to any meal. My roommate got a burger that also had an egg on it and it was also delightful. I highly recommend Ruby's burgers, I've even taken my mom here so they are mom-approved burgers. At our next stop, we were only served with books and lengthy ...

Czech CultureBrooklyn Kolache Co.

Still stuck on a culture high from the Czech Republic and from making traditional Czech kolaches at home with my mom, I sought out what seemed to be the only kolache bakery in New York City. Kolaches are a traditional Czech pastries that can be filled with sweet or savory fillings. The pastry has also infiltrated Texas and has become a classic dish in the Czech belt of Texas. I grew up with my grandma's home-made poppyseed kolaches, which often lined a platter on Thanksgiving or Christmas. This summer, I ...

A Wool Coat in the Winter ft. Sightglass Coffee

Returning home for Thanksgiving after three months away, I felt the obligation to explore parts of San Francisco I may have forgotten about as well as return to some old favorites. This post chronicles exactly that. Our first stop was the latter, an old favorite. Sightglass Coffee, located on 7th St in SoMa, serves our favorite Neighborhood Bakehouse pastries and an amazing cup of coffee (or espresso con panna which is what I opted for). My mom and dad both ordered cappuccinos, which were also delicious. Please also note the hats ...

The New York Coffee Festival 2016

I walked into the 69th Regiment Armory/heaven to a La Marzocco sign in lights. My nose was immediately entranced by the aroma of coffee everywhere. Because that’s what it was. Coffee (and some tea) EVERYWHERE. Yesterday, I had the splendid opportunity of attending The New York Coffee Festival. I could not have been more content being in the company of two of my favorite friends (Maddy and Olivia—featured above) and the most espresso machines I’ve ever seen in one place. Initial Reactions: Oh my god it smells like people are smoking ...

Café Kafíčko  Prague, Czech Republic

Located a minute-walk from our hotel in Prague, Café Kafíčko resides in a corner space that works perfectly. From the outside, you are granted a slight view of the coffee shop through white barred windows with decorative planters. When you walk in, you are most likely greeted by an elder man, the owner of the shop. He speaks predominantly Czech, but we were able to communicate perfectly after he understood that I did not speak and handed me an English translation of a menu to replace the Czech one I received ...
