midterms week got me stressing out with school work and also client work. but with all things that's been happening to me, good and bad, i always remember that at the end of the day, basta may tim hortons iced capp ako masaya na ako.
Checked @elevenmadisonpark off my bucket list ✅ While I fangirl over restaurants and restauranteurs often, this one threw me over the edge. Maybe it was the company (OK - def the company @glutenfreebagel 😘). Maybe it was the snow day. Maybe it was the fact that we were about to go see @michaelbuble 🎼 But the EMP experience was absolutely incredible. Although he no longer owns the restaurant, I totally ad(meyer 🤓) @dhmeyer and his commitment to culture/hospitality/people. @danielhumm and @wguidara definitely carry on the legacy and make it transcend through every dish. I'm lucky to have gotten this experience. Even luckier to be able to appreciate the #makeitnice community 🍽️ #nyc#bucketlist
This... ladies and gentleman, this is (a half of) the worldfamous Pastrami Sandwich made by @katzsdeli New York.
It's been sold here like this for over 100 years. We had one yesterday at 4pm. Still not hungry 😂
Yay! Today is #solariumfavorites day - Library edition. Get your bucket list ready because we have this magical place for you to add to it! ✨
The Livraria Lello bookstore in Porto, Portugal, is one of the world's oldest bookstores and frequently ranked as one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world.
Opened in 1906 by the brothers José and António Lello on Rua das Carmelitas, the bookstore is a stunning architectural landmark and was once a frequent hangout for Portugal's literary scene.
Many have suggested that the bookstore bears a striking resemblance to depictions of both Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the central setting of the books, and the Flourish and Blotts bookshop, where characters in the books purchase their books on magic.
Coincidence? We don’t think so! J.K. Rowling lived and taught English in Porto from 1991 to 1993 and was a loyal customer of Livraria Lello at the time.
Please, hold my book while I purchase my ticket! ✈️ 🇵🇹 ❤️📚

ADVENTURE 4 | BUY MYSELF CHOCOLATES
I opted to try three different homemade truffles and because I’m still in the Valentine’s Day and ready for Spring spirit, I decided upon three adorably, pink homemade truffles. All brought in from @moonstruckchoc out of Portland, Oregon - a company that still hand-crafts each and every piece of chocolate they create using only the finest ingredients - I wish I could tell you exactly what each of them were, but I cannot … I ate them too fast and was too excited at the store to bother taking mental note of what I was buying.
The perfectly cute ladybug was a combination of strawberry and milk chocolate.
The frosted strawberry was actually dark chocolate and strawberry with THE BEST sparkly sugar coating you could ever dream of.
My favorite was the pink champagne heart which was just as hot pink on the inside as it was on the outside and if I ever wanted to be a piece of chocolate in my life, that was the moment.
So on a day when you feel like you need a little self-love, go spend $12 on a box of chocolates — like real, non-artificial, so cute you don’t want to eat them chocolates (or splurge on $12 of Reese’s if that’s your jam … or $12 of beef jerky if you hate chocolate). Savor indulging in something special that you don’t normally treat yourself to.
Break your normal routine.
That is what life is all about. Savoring each bite, each moment, and each day because, really, that is sometimes the only thing we really have any control over.
Quite frankly, disappointing 😫. But the new #museum which is bound to open very soon, near the pyramids, is supposed to be amazing. Yes, that’s a bright sun ☀️ .

Love Is Blind.. Have u ever dined in the dark? I mean pitch black… We did!!!!!! A pleasant surprise was that we were allowed to get in touch with our other senses (not sight) by first being led to play a game blindfolded (sheer fun)… I won’t give away too much to ruin the fun!
Before long we were being led away from the light and into a pitch black room by a legally blind waiter (who was friendly, spoke English, witty and accommodating) to devour a prix fixe menu (at the time of our visit we had a choice of three menus). Points to note
• Use the restroom before being led to the dining area
• No phones or reflective clothing or accessories are allowed
• A locker is provided free of cost for all valuables (phones etc) that is monitored by a camera
• Be prepared to have your palate stimulated and your other senses awakened
El amor es ciego … ¿Alguna vez has cenado en la oscuridad? Me refiero a un tono negro ... ¡Lo hicimos!
Una agradable sorpresa fue que nos permitieron estar en contacto con nuestros otros sentidos (no con la vista) al ser guiados a jugar un juego con los ojos vendados (pura diversión) ... ¡No voy a ceder demasiado para arruinar la diversión.
En poco tiempo, un camarero legalmente ciego (que era amable, hablaba inglés, ingenioso y complaciente) nos conducía lejos de la luz y nos llevaba a una habitación totalmente oscura para devorar un menú fijo (en el momento de nuestra visita, teníamos una opción) de tres menús). Puntos a tener en cuenta
• Use el baño antes de ser conducido al comedor
• No se permiten teléfonos ni ropa o accesorios reflectantes
• Se proporciona un casillero sin costo para todos los objetos de valor (teléfonos,etc.) que son monitoreados por una cámara.
• Prepárese para que estimulen su paladar y despierten sus otros sentidos
