Life Lately: NYC Adventures with Sincerely Sara

Last weekend Sara of Sincerely Sara and I met up for a full day of fun on the first day of the season that was actually worthy of spring.  We grabbed crepes from Viva La Crepe (both of us opted for nutella & strawberry) and then walked over to The Strand where I put a slight lift on my No Spend April but I limited myself to just 3 books (which was especially difficult since we kept trading recommendations).  Then we met up with Andrew who took this lovely photo of us in front of a cherry blossom tree<3  We also got to see the newly unveiled street art of the giant baby Hulk in front of an American flag made up of distorted logos and ads which hit the corner of Bowery and Houston just one day prior.

We walked to Morgenstern’s for ice cream cones (I had pistachio green tea, Andrew had salted caramel pretzel and Sara had mango), and then backtracked down 2nd Avenue where we made a quick stop at Toy Tokyo.  Sara picked up so Funko Pop figures for her brothers and herself, and I grabbed some Sailor Moon charms and a Funko vinyl of Trixie Lulamoon (the wizard pony on MLP).  We ended our day at Phyiscal Graffitea where Andrew and I had the most refreshing iced Moroccan Mint tea, and Sara had chocolate iced tea which we sipped while chatting about photography and past art exhibits in the New York area.  We also saw this beautiful Converse sneaker along our travels.  Overall, we had such a wonderful time and I can’t wait to plan another trip together!  Sara is absolutely lovely in person and if you haven’t read her blog you can check it out here.  I personally love her outfits inspired by Once Upon a Time and classic literature, as well as her own outfit of the day posts and book reviews!
