Little pillows of deliciousness are what these are. While trying to feed a donut craving, found this place called, Bomboloni, that sells little donuts of the same name. Bomboloni are Italian filled donuts topped with powdered sugar. My favorites are the Strawberry, Creme Brulee, Apple, and Raspberry.  Other flavors include Valrhona Chocolate, Traditional, etc.  They are $1 a piece or half-dozen for $5.  Yummy and well worth it.  A must try, you won’t regret it.  There are also other goodies there so check them out!

rainbow sandals

Success!  There is FINALLY a Rainbow Brand sandal shop here in NYC. Stumbled upon it the other day.  I didn’t know where I would get them except in CA or online…lol…too bad they last soo long that you never really have to buy new one’s often.  I’ve had mine for atleast 7 years and they look like they could last 7 more.  Just so durable and comfy.

I can’t help but think about how absolutely beautiful this act of nature is.

The Icelandic volcano eruption in Eyjafjallajökull may have kept many European airline travelers grounded (including 2 coworkers of mine who have been trapped in London for the last week), but it is at the same time amazing to watch.  More pics here.

a salt & battery: fish & chips

I love love love fish and chips. Finally stopped in and ate at this tasty place I always pass by when i’m in the area.  Love the name – “A Salt & Battery”.  Tried the Sea Bass and Sole (with chips of course!).  Everything was delish and perfect!  I will definitely be going back.  If you love fish and chips, check this place out.  Fun sightings: Ballot from Bobby’s Flay’s Throwdown on the Food Network on the wall and a poster for deep fried Cadbury Eggs for Easter weekend.  (Melissa, you are probably the only one I know who might be willing to try those deep friend Cadbury eggs.  I know how much you love Cadbury eggs!!)

friday’s desk view: spring + bands

Spring is in bloom. Beautiful day Friday even though I was stuck inside. Loved the street performers I saw when I stepped ou for a sec. Made the farmer’s market seem that much more lively.
