One scoop of cookie dough, please

And other shots from New York.

Yes, I waited in line for 20 minutes in an attempt to figure out the mystery surrounding the latest dessert treat in Manhattan. All I can say is one bite of cookie dough tasted great; I deemed the entire scoop unnecessary. Feel free to try it yourself at Cookie DŌ NYC.

My latest trip to the big apple included a stop at the Nike store where a beautiful installation dedicated to the VaporMax awaited. I naturally fell into old habits and visited KITH where I picked up this Alexander Wang x Adidas boost. Click here to see how I created a makeup look inspired by the sneaker.

I also discovered two spots where I never entered before. The first, a pop-up shop at The Upton Collective where NAKEDCASHMERE awaits. My cousin bought his dog a beautiful cashmere sweater while I ventured upstairs to the Dirty Lemon loft where I finally tried the detoxing beverage.

The second spot I fell in love with is Fine & Rare. A new jazz bar that just opened earlier this year but just until recently began serving hot food (the building kept the gas off for awhile). It’s the perfect place for a date, a girls night out or relax with soothing music throughout the entire space.

I also checked Cha Cha Matcha and Employees Only off my bucket list. Both worthy of your time and calorie intake 😉

The final pictures come from a day of exploration in and out of Chelsea art galleries.

Cookie monsta

It’s finally time to eat my favorite frozen treat!

After years of eating frozen yogurt, I finally began to crave ice cream again. When I saw this delight on DCFoodPorn’s Instagram, I instantly marked Thomas Sweet on my must-try list.

With sunny skies and an uneventful weekend, Justin and I stopped by the dessert shop for a chocolate covered waffle cone stuffed with cookies and cream and salted caramel ice creams. We topped it off with cookie dough, which a server reached into an entirely different refrigerator that probably holds tubs of my favorite raw dish. It’s the highlight to this frozen gem and a must-try addition.

The best part about this shop is its location. Tourists will miss the storefront since it lurks a bit around the corner of Wisconsin and P St. Inside you can find a diverse crowd ranging from families to high schoolers on dates.


Thomas Sweet is located on 3214 P St NW. Enjoy your ice cream outside or indoors.
