Back in February I attended the Dutch Masters workshop with Little Flower School. I adore Sarah and Nicolette with all my heart so it was super fun to be able to take part in and document the event. These ladies are SO damn good at what they do :) It was held at the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City with special guest Samin Nostrat who made the most delicious spread of snacks. It was a day to be remembered.
I recently photographed my dear friends new restaurant in Soho, Navy. Camille Becerra and I have been pals since forever it feels like. She is the chef of this new space with Akiva and Matt who are behind Smith & Mills. The details of this space are intricately crafted and thoughtful with a nautical inspired theme. Beautiful Japanese indigo tapestries are patch worked over the walls, the base lined in copper. A tiled bar of tiny sailboats hosts both a raw bar and coffee station. Old school-house chairs in addition to the wrap around wood banquets. The menu offers a lovely selection of seafood including things like raw oysters, crudos and uni butter on toast.

I was in Philly for a couple days. I had pretty much an afternoon to visit some shops and eat. Whenever I travel, I get recommendations from locals and friends so that I'm prepared. No time to waste on crappy food and tourist traps. I recommend the following based on the few hours I had to walk around while I wasn't working :) I'll be back to explore more, until next time Philly.
Vagabond | 37 N3rd St.
Cutest boutique around, got myself in some trouble in there. Great selection of clothes, be sure to check out their vintage collection in the back.
Art in the Age | 116 N3rd St.
Menswear primarily, a great selection of goods including some of my pals (Morris Kitchen and Blades Natural Beauty). Snap is delicious!
Moon & Arrow | 754 S4th St.
A great mix of vintage clothing, used furniture, jewelry and home goods.
Zahav | 237 Saint James Place
Based on everyones recommendations, this middle eastern restaurant did not disappoint. Hummus, labne, yummy salads, fresh baked bread. Nom.
La Colombe Coffee | 130 S19th St.
One of my favorite coffee distributors :)
I was in Tuscany back in November. I cant believe its taken me this long to start sharing it. I'm typically relatively fast when it comes to sharing travel stuff. I went with Lucini Italia to Tuscany where we shot olive harvest and the whole olive oil making process. Throw in a couple small castles perched on hillsides and couple cute old Italian men and there ya go. Its as dreamy as it looks in real life.
