These Are a Few Of My Favorite Things // Vol. 27

Happy Friday!!! Hope you all had a good week. I’m looking forward to the warm weather that’s coming my way in NYC tomorrow. I plan to spend all of tomorrow after I teach outside soaking up the sunshine.

This week’s favorites are short and sweet. Here’s what I’ve been loving this week:

new restaurant: Lucky Lee’s

To say I’m excited about this restaurant opening up in my ‘hood is a wild understatement. Holy moly am I SO excited Lucky Lee’s is finally open. Lucky Lee’s is new, clean eating restaurant created by a nutritionist. The entire menu is gluten-free, dairy-free and corn-free. Think cauliflower fried rice (yup!), grass-fed beef and baked sesame chicken goodness.

I’ve only been able to go once since they opened earlier this week (but I’m planning on going later today for lunch 😂) and I’m already obsessed. I got the baked sesame chicken with green beans and the high veggie lo mein. Everything was excellent, but I have to say the green beans really stole the show.

[Update]: It has been brought to my intention that there is a major discussion around Lucky Lee’s and how this healthy take on Chinese food by a white restauranteur is cultural appropriation.

I will completely honest when I say I don’t think I am the person to make a comment on this as someone that is white and Jewish-American. But I do think it’s important to mention and I apologize if my inclusion of this restaurant as one of my favorite things this week is offensive to anyone. For me I’m just excited to share a restaurant that many of my friends with dietary restrictions or allergies can dine at and excited to have another lunch option in my neighborhood.

I am sorry if my inclusion of this restaurant is seen as anything but that. 

my first ice cream of the season at Van Leeuwen

The weather Monday was SPECTACULAR. I was a happy camper wearing my Birkenstocks. After teaching three classes Monday evening I got me some Van Leeuwen ice cream on the walk home from the yoga studio. The vegan chocolate chip cookie dough is my personal favorite 🙂

The Bold Type is BACK!

I don’t watch a lot of new TV shows these days besides Rupaul’s Drag Race and Project Runway. But one show I do watch? The Bold Type on Freeform. Last summer I binge watched the first two seasons and became a somewhat mega fan of the show. It follows a fictional version of the magazine Cosmopolitan and three best friends navigating work-life balance in the years after graduating college.

puffer jacket from Lululemon

I’m heading to the UK with my parents in a little over a week. AHHH! I have a feeling the weather is going to be on the damp + chilly side (when is it not in London?). This week I ordered a new puffer jacket from Lululemon. It’s got a hood, you can stuff it into a tiny little carry pouch, and it’s deceptively warm. Get ready to see me rocking this jacket on social media all vacation long.

Around the Web:

this guide to photography and editing photos for instagram is SO thorough and helpful

• have you heard about the controversy with photos taken at the new Hudson Yards “Vessel?”

• I’m so so proud of my friend Jordan for launching her business. She talks 3 things she’s learned in 3 months as an entrepreneur

And you? What are you loving this week?
