Fashion Friday: Bronx Blues

Conveniently, I happen to have a wonderful partner in crime who has access to an amazing array of DLSRs, lenses and film equipment. So, being the resourceful gal that I am, I have him contribute to my blog, whether he likes it or not (I’d like to think the former :) )!

One such source became my visit to Bao Shoppe, a casual cafe-like spot that felt vaguely like upscale truck food. Ambiance –  Bao Shoppe has a street/urban-like vibe, what with its graffiti featuring the N train and industrial tubing across […]

As a dedicated attendee of the annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, I feel it’s my duty to let my readers know how it compares to those in the years prior. After all, veggie innovation can only move forward and not backward, right? This year, I found it to be even more crowded + packed with […]
