This weekend included a fair amount of adventures. One of my first stops of Joe Fresh on 5th Avenue where I picked up a new bikini top and adorable floppy hat for my upcoming Miami trip.
I am absolutely obsessed with this hat. My shopping trip also led me to this cute little boutique where I purchased a pair of sunglasses and some costume jewelry. I would have to say this made my Friday pretty successful. However, this is what really made it a great day: Jewels by Jar.
If you have not gone to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see this fabulous exhibit yet, I would strongly encourage it because not only are these pieces astronomically beautiful but just looking at pictures of them online really doesn’t do them justice. When I saw that this exhibit had made its way to NYC, I was really excited I browsed through ever single photo online. Yet, when I saw these jewels in person I was even more amazed by the detail and beauty of these pieces. This exhibit is a must see! I am not going to lie, I fell in love many many times while viewing this exhibit.
I also ventured out for dinner this Saturday night and finally went to Vapianos. From looking at this restaurant from the outside, you can already sense the amazing ambiance of the place however I was surprised by the cafeteria style serving. Instead of sitting at a table and being served you are to go “watch your meal be made” and after you find your own table. This was the only con I found at Vapianos. When I go out for dinner, it is to be relaxed and have other people serve me, not to have to get my food myself and search for a table (it was pretty crowded). However, when I tasted my Scampi e Spinaci I was immediately satisfied. It was delicious! With that said, Vapianos may not be the best place for a date, but is awesome when you go with a group of friends.
Let me know what you think of Jewels by Jar and your favorite dish at Vapianos!
