After a particularly rough week, I couldn't have asked for more than to spend the entire weekend with some of my favorite people and best friends. Trust that despite my best efforts to always view the world through rose-colored lenses, even I sometimes go through a rough patch. Who knew, but it turns out even all the glittery shoes and sparkly jewels still can't make a girl defenseless over a break-up! I'm so grateful for good friends and good adventures. The weekend was a mixture of the best company, a lot of delicious food, good cocktails (it's Pimms Cup season, after all), dancing to soul music in Brooklyn with some lovely ladies, going 3-in into a photobooth, dying Easter Eggs in my go-to neighborhood haunt during happy hour, treking from Park Slope to the Upper East Side and Back to Williamsburg with P.Y.T. Luxirare... I could go on, and on, and on, but suffice to say it was a really fantastic weekend. Never, ever, ever take your friendships for granted. They're everything.
Luxirare and I started our Sunday by heading to Park Slope for brunch. Our original plan was to dine at Blue Ribbon, but much to my dismay it was closed! It ended up being a good thing because it gave me a chance to find a new spot in the neighborhood, so we walked down 5th Avenue (Brooklyn), and found ourselves at Cafe Moutarde, a French bistro with crave-worthy eclairs and baguettes garnishing the windows. We shared the escargot (my first time trying this dish, and I have to say I actually loved it), sipped on champagne, and while Ji opted for a steak, I went for a classic French Omelette. Perfect brunch, indeed!

Of course, Luxi and I had to head uptown for some macarons (we were very determined, and even a sudden rainstorm could not deter us), especially as the collaboration between Hello Kitty and Ladurée had just launched. How cute are these boxes?!
A little window shopping outside Céline before heading home for macarons and a glass of wine with Luxirare and an evening of Mad Men... Maybe the perfect day ever.
