Food Porn of The Week: Taqueria Downtown

Mexican food is my absolute favorite. Taqueria Downtown does Mexican right! We are talking the authentic stuff. There are not many words I can use to describe the insane deliciousness of this place. Just take a look for yourself...

The food is so good, it's addictive. You definitely want to try the pork tacos. They are to die for! If you are ever in Downtown Jersey City, NJ I highly recommend you check it out.

Bridal Post: Twigs and Honey

Since wedding season is here I've decided to share some ideas over the next few weeks to help make the day extra special.
These are really great options for those brides who want to steer away from a traditional veil, or for those brides who would like to wear a veil, then take it off at their reception and still have something adorning their hair. The Twigs and Honey line is extremely romantic, fun and modern. To check out more click here.

Childs Play

{photos taken 4/24 at Liberty State Park}

Oh, to be a kid again...
This past Saturday was perfect kite flying weather. Mind you I had never flown a kite before. After a few unsuccessful tries and nearly decapitating my husband I finally got the hang of it. It was so much fun. I can't wait to do it again. ; )

Friday's Musical Selection

This Friday's Musical Selection is Sia's - You've Changed. Love her voice. This song makes me want to shake my booty while wearing Superman underwear like Cameron Diaz in Charlie's Angels. ; )

Have a great weekend!

Food Porn of The Week: Spaghetti Carbonara

Cooking is very therapeutic to me. After a long and exhausting day at work there is nothing I look forward to more than creating a delicious meal. It gives me the chance to forget about all the events of the day and just concentrate on the task at hand. This recipe for spaghetti carbonara is super quick, super easy and super tasty. I mean really how comforting is pasta, cheese and bacon?

It's Good To Be Pampered

{Delicious Mexican Corn and Half of a Cuban Sandwich}

{Essie's Tart Deco}
Today I took the day off of work for some me time. My mom, sister, and I headed into the city to get hair cuts. After than we headed to one of my all time favorite spots, Cafe Habana in Soho. If you go there you must and I mean MUST try the corn. It's like eating a little piece of heaven sprinkled with cotija cheese and chili powder. After that I went for a much needed mani/pedi. I have to thank Erika from Fashion Chalet for putting me on to Tart Deco by Essie. It's the perfect shade for spring.
Have a great weekend!

Food Porn of the Week: Dinner at The Latin American

I wasn't in the mood to cook dinner today so, my hubby and I decided to go to one of our favorite local restaurants, The Latin American. The Latin American is a Cuban restaurant located in Union City, NJ. The food is incredible and the portions are insane for the price. He had his usual, the Bistec Empanizado {breaded steak}. I had the Bistec en Cazuela {steak casserole} special (only $6.95!!!). It's total comfort food that always hits the spot.

She Dreams in Digital

Digital print dresses are all the rage this season. From multi-colored to the more understated monochromatic feel, there is something for everyone this year. These explosions of color call for minimal accessories. The dress speaks for itself. The best part of owning one of these beauties is that they are the perfect transitional piece! Wear them with some opened toed booties in the spring. When fall rolls around simply pair with some opaque tights and a blazer.

If you haven't noticed I am a little obsessed with Target and their designer collaborations. I am marking April 18th on my calendar as this is the day both the Eugenia Kim hat collection and the Cynthia Vincent shoe collection will hit Target stores. Here are some of the pieces that really caught my eye. I think I am going to have to grab up that baby blue fedora and those yellow wedges.
