We are always excited about new coffee shops in the neighborhood, but we think we might have just found our new favorite one . When a business is all about great ethics we immediately are intrigued, and after chatting with the owner for a brief moment and seeing his passion behind Sey, we couldnt help but to not fall in love. It also helps that the coffee is amazing and the open air minimal vibe will give you all the feels.
We had the pleasure of hanging out with Jamie and Tracy while we were in Kingston, NY. We stopped by their beautiful space before they opened to chat for a bit over a couple glasses of wine. We left inspired by their story to leave the city and start something special. Brunette is a local wine bar serving up natural wines and bites on beautiful marble tops that gives us major Parisian vibes.
We are still dreaming about our stay at Hasbrouck House. After spending a few days at this restored hotel from the 18th century, we can definitely say it's one of our favorite places in The Hudson Valley. Our suite (located in The Stable House) was extremely spacious featuring 2 bedrooms, a mini kitchen, and the bathroom of our dreams. Seriously guys, that tub is something magical! We were also wowed by our dinner at Butterfield, the restaurant of Hasbrouck House. We chowed down on a lovely spread which included duck, chicken, duck patae, and beet salad. After a few drinks at the bar, we headed back to our room and melted right into what might be the world's comfiest bed.
Everything about this place is perfection! We're already counting down the days until our next stay.
Final days of summer means trying to fit in all the last minute trips as possible. Lucky for us, the Hamptons is only a train ride away and we got to stay at, The Maidstone during our time there. From the moment you walk into the door of The Maidstone you feel at home, the cozy lobby and friendly staff sure do add the perfect touch. The lounge has multiple rooms to relax and enjoy a nice cocktail and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. After a nights sleep we woke up before sunrise and decided this was the perfect time to bike to Main Beach, (which is only 4 minutes away) and watch the sun come up over the water. Immediately after we biked back and had a healthy breakfast consisting of delicious smoothies, eggs, and smoked salmon avocado toast. If you are ever in The Hamptons we highly recommend stopping by The Maidstone whether it be for drinks, dinner, or a relaxing stay.
Escaping the hustle and bustle of New York City is something we like to do often. Whether it's a quick trip upstate, or an extended vacation exploring a new city. This past weekend we had the chance to hang out in the Finger Lakes Wine Country and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Now when you think of wine country, there's obviously one thing that comes to mind, WINE, and man did we have a lot of it. Between visiting wineries, munching on delicious bites, and soaking in the breathtaking landscapes; we can say this was the perfect trip for relaxation.
Tapas? Yes please!! We had the pleasure of stopping by Amada for brunch while we were in Philadelphia. With lots of great options and an unbeatable brunch special, we knew Amada had us covered. The menu features everything from Greek yogurt (not your average Greek yogurt may we add), to coquettes, and even scallops! How can you not love this place. The huevos flamencos was one of the best we have ever had. We are counting down the days until we head back to try the sangria pancakes and other menu items. Amada you've won us over!
Order the pork belly. We repeat, order the pork belly. This is some of the best BBQ around and we are from Texas, so we take this very seriously. Nothing on the menu disappoints and the service is excellent. So, if you are looking for a great place to hang out and eat some damn good food, look no further than Fette Sau.
Holy moly, from the moment we walked into Lokal Hotel we were swept away. This hotel is, dare we say it, "GOALS"! Clearly, from our excitement you can tell this isn't your average hotel, the whole place is perfection. The aesthetic and decor had us "oooh and ahhhing" the whole time. We stayed in the Tina room and loved it, but honestly you cant go wrong with any of the other 5 rooms here, especially since our friends over at Jersey Ice Cream Co designed it. We left feeling so inspired, and now we are currently heading back to our apartment to redecorate a bit.
We headed out to Washington D.C. to spend a day with family while they were on vacation. We tried to make the most of our time and get in as much as possible. By the end of the day we were pooped but it was well worth it.
- Hudson, NY
Our time spent in Hudson, NY instantly became one of our favorite adventures upstate. We had no idea how lovely this quaint town would be. Everything was great from the food, to our stay at Rivertown Guesthouse. We were so inspired by every room and corner inside Rivertown Guesthouse. Here's a few of our favorite pictures from our stay.

Who knew that a weekend at The Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond was exactly what we needed after an extremely tiring week. We snuck away to this nautical themed hotel and were swept off our feet with the impeccable hospitality of the staff and the extreme comforts of the room. We shared wine and laughs with new friends, took a boat out into the Chesapeake Bay, and sat in Adirondack chairs while the sun would disappear. If you're in need of an escape, we suggest heading out for a weekend at The Inn at Perry Cabin.
The days were hot, the food was impeccable, and every single house seemed to be just as beautiful as the next. Savannah blew us away with its charm. Here's a few of our favorite film photos from our weekend in Savannah. We hope you enjoy!
We were invited by our good friends over at Zio & Sons to spend an afternoon trying some of the best cocktails made with St-Germain. We stopped by Maison Premiere as our first stop on the bar crawl throughout Brooklyn. As one of favorite places in Brooklyn, we couldn't pass up on a chance to give you a glimpse into this New Orleans styled restaurant right in Williamsburg. Be sure to swing by, order up some plump oysters, and crafted cocktails. Don't forget they have a garden in the back.
If you're in the East Village and you're in the mood for oysters, we have the perfect place for you. Goodnight Sonny has been a favorite of ours for awhile now, we just love how the sun pours into this place while we sip cocktails and knock back oysters. Not to mention the thoughtful, fun decor that will keep your attention your entire time.
We knew we were in for a treat when we stepped inside this beauty. We sat down at the bar and ordered a few cocktails while we waited to be seated. These creative seafood dishes kep surprising us bite after bite. Make sure you stay for dessert!

Stop into this swanky cocktail bar for some exceptional creative cocktails. The marble bar and the decor will bring you back to another time. Grab a seat at the bar and let the bartender guide you through their menu to make the perfect cocktail selection.
If this is what a true southern brunch is like, then we need it in our lives every weekend! We couldn't get enough of the delicious food at The Collins Corner. So much so, that we were thinking about ordering even more food after our brunch, because everything was just too freaking good! We highly recommend ordering the 'Tag this Hash" and the 'Swine time Beni'.

Sooooo, obviously staying in a mansion has been on our bucket list for some time now. So, when we walked up to our "home for the weekend" while in Savannah, we were beyond excited! And even more so in love once we opened the doors and took a tour of this beautiful place. This beautiful home was so inspiring words and pictures don't do it justice! Here are a few of our favorites.
We're constantly discovering new places in this city and even though we've lived here over 8+ years now, we still haven't eaten at even half of the restaurants here in NYC. Our new discovery this week was Industry Kitchen, and boy are we glad we found out about it when we did. It is located at the edge of the East River on South St; this New American restaurant which serves up delicious eats like watermelon salad, avocado toast, and wood fire pizzas. Not only is the food on point but the drinks are too. With the weather warming up and summer quickly approaching, we cant help but to get excited about returning here with friends for drinks and bites soon!
