In the island of Manhattan, New Yorkers find great delight in options that fulfill their sweet tooth without splurging on hundreds of calories. Most find this pleasure in fro-yo and all of the stores that serve–Pinkberry, 16 Handles, Tasty Delight, Red Mango…the list certainly goes on. Although we’re obsessed, there’s nothing like a fresh, innovative, and even more delicious change–it’s Greek yogurt at Chobani (150 Prince Street).

Not only can you get your spoons in some of the most delicious packaged flavors the company has to offer, but you can also customize your order DIY-style and even keep the glass bowl that it comes in. Here was my order: yogurt topped with figs, pineapple, carmel, chocolate shavings, and almonds. Delish!

Award season: glamour, entertainment, red carpets, A-List celebrities, shiny trophies, stunning dresses…the list of words that come to mind are quite endless. With the Golden Globes airing this evening, there is so much to look forward to. From the red carpet entrances and hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to the winning pictures leading to further Oscar predictions and more, this is an award show not to miss. While some like to throw big soirees of their own, I like to keep mine small with few friends and family over festive snacks and drinks: popcorn (with a variety of topping options, including cheddar and carmel powder from Sur la Table and truffle oil from Williams Sonoma), candy (chocolate Twizzlers and Crunch bars), and some peach bubbly (sparkling apple juice was my alternative). Think movie night gone a little more glam than usual, while still keeping it simple and stylish (disposable table cloths are not usually my thing, but in this instance it works, cute popcorn holders, and toppings on coasters).

Earlier this afternoon, I had one of the most satisfying lunches with my mom and brother at Rouge Tomate on the Upper East Side. I’ve been quite a few times, but this meal in particular was absolutely delicious. With the New Year, my goal is to eat satisfying meals that are filling, yet healthy. The dishes above, which my mom and I shared, were perfect portion wise, and truly fulfilled each and every one of my tastebuds. My favorite dish was the gnocchi, but only because I’m quite the pasta person and have a guilty pleasure for carbs. But regardless, the meal as a whole was definitely a 1o out of 10, and the combination of the relaxing and modern ambiance of the restaurant made for a wonderful Saturday afternoon lunch in the island of Manhattan.

Sydney’s Favorite Homemade Holiday Cookies

In Food, Holiday on December 19, 2012 at 12:00 AM

IMG_6185

I’ve always had a sweet tooth, but boy does it come into full swing during the holiday season! There’s something so festive and special about holiday cookies that I insist on my mom making them every year–because mom’s touch is always the best. But most importantly, they’re just purely delicious.

IMG_6206

IMG_6189

You can never go wrong with classic gingerbread men, but we gave a little spin to ours with sprinkle “embellishments.” I also savor sugar cookies in a variety of shapes, including stockings, Christmas trees, and music notes. Their simplicity is topped with beautifully colored sugars and holiday theme decorations.

IMG_6195

IMG_6211

Lastly, and a rather new addition to our cookie making and decorating, are stained-glass biscotti’s (recipe here), which make for a great hostess gift when placed in a festive box, like these from the Container Store.

Chocolate Dipped Almonds: A Holiday Hostess Gift

In Food, Holiday on December 6, 2012 at 12:21 AM

IMG_5852

Holiday parties are at their peak, bringing fun and festivities to the holiday season.

Whenever I attend a party, I like to bring a hostess gift–a little something that shows my appreciation for being invited and the work that one has put into it.

While there’s nothing like bringing a Diptyque candle, a kitsch tabletop item from C.Wonder, or simply a bottle of wine, there are some instances when bringing something unique, and [somewhat] homemade, makes for a fresh take on gifting.

My favorite go-to? Boxes of chocolate-dipped almonds from The Chocolate Moose, a local candy store in Pittsburgh, PA; quite frankly the only store that makes them just right.

IMG_5847

I love the combination of nuts and chocolate (except peanuts–I’m allergic!) because it adds an element of sweet “surprise” to something that is typically healthy. You can customize the color/type of chocolate for each gift, adding a personal touch.

Whether in theme of the holidays (blue and white, or green and red, depending on what you celebrate) or the color of your hostess’ home, these almonds will be a delicious holiday treat.

Sydney’s Warm Homey Touches

In Decor, Food, Holiday on November 30, 2012 at 2:42 AM

IMG_5723

There’s nothing like little homey touches that make staying in on cold winter nights during the holidays complete. At this time of year, I love lighting candles while taking a warm bubble bath, reading a book, or am trying to fall asleep.

Then there are those comfortable and bold pajamas that make snuggling in my ottoman chair (spiced up with a sparkly pillow) or in my  bed while watching a Christmasy movie (The Family Stone and National Lampoon Christmas Vacation are my favorites) the ultimate activity.

Adding to this warmth is the help of some peppermint tea and a splurging of cinnamon sugar marshmallows as a light but super fulfilling bite…and after that, a few Lindt balls that melt in your mouth like chocolate perfection.

So while being out and about is a great time, there are some evenings during this time of year when staying at home feels just right.

Rockefeller Tree Lighting & Hot Cocoa Delight

In Food, Holiday on November 28, 2012 at 12:00 AM

This evening will mark the 80th anniversary of the world famous Christmas tree lighting in Rockefeller Center. The event is spectacular every year, whether daring enough to freeze go to it in person, or simply watch it on TV in the comfort of your home. It’s a tradition to watch it at home with my family, and it truly kicks off the holiday season.

This year’s performances are definitely ones to look forward to, with a line-up including Mariah Carey (All I Want For Christmas Is You is one of my favorite songs to play on the piano), CeeLo Green, Il Volo, Rod Stewart, Victoria Justice, Trace Adkins, and Chris Mann. 

There’s nothing like a sweet treat while watching some good old entertainment, and to play along with the holiday theme, why not a Christmasy hot chocolate? This, might I add, is not any typical hot chocolate. In addition to using Hershey’s genuine chocolate syrup, try adding crushed chocolate chips for the ultimate chocolatey delight. And to go all-out, go to your local supermarket and pick up some Jet-Puffed peppermint marshmallows for a candy cane-like topping–toasting them will give the ultimate, warm, gooey, and just plain old delicious effect.

As if you needed any more sweet treats, I like munching on something crunchy, so a small gingerbread snap cookie is the perfect way to go.

What’s your favorite hot chocolate recipe?

Thanksgiving Dinner Snapshots

In Food on November 24, 2012 at 12:01 AM

‘Tis the season for many, many things…one of them being the season of eating. It seems as though the talent o’cooking skips generations in my family. My great grandmother was said to be a great cook, and my mom is one as well.

In contrast, my grandmother was never fell into that category, and me…well, let’s just say I’m better at nibbling on what’s cooking in the kitchen by my mother than getting hands-on–I wouldn’t call myself Barefoot Contessa.

Therefore, I’m super appreciative for my mom’s ability to cook anything and everything at an extremely delicious level, and overall make the holidays so special. Above are some snapshots of some of my favorite dishes that she made on Thanksgiving.

…and although it may be hard to imagine, there were many more.

Mom’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

In Food on November 21, 2012 at 12:00 AM

One of the luxuries of being home for the holidays is enjoying and savoring my mom’s homemade food. Thanksgiving is one of her busiest holidays in the kitchen (we have about fifteen people coming over, and she cooks every little thing) and even the days leading up to it. When I got home yesterday afternoon, she had a warm pumpkin chocolate chip bundt cake waiting on my breakfast room table, the ultimate seasonal baked good that is so delicious. There is something about pumpkin at this time of year that just feels so right. My mom tends to collect recipes from all different kinds of magazines, blogs, etc, and this is one of the many examples of recipes she’s found. However, she always adds her own touch–for this recipe, she added 1/2 package of mini chocolate chips. They really do make a difference.

Below is the recipe.

Cook time: 55 Min Prep time: 20 Min

Ingredients

-1 bx yellow cake mix (18-1/4 oz)

– 1 bx butterscotch pudding (3.4 oz)

– 1/4 c vegetable oil

– 1/4 c water

– 1 c canned pumpkin

– 2 tsp pumpkin pie sauce

-4 eggs

– powdered sugar or whipped cream, opt. (my mom chose powdered sugar–delicious!)

Directions

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds; beat on mediumfor 4 minutes.

2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350’F for 50-55 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean.

3. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

4. Dust with powdered sugar or serve with whipped cream if desired.

Staying In Mom’s Way

In Decor, Food on September 28, 2012 at 12:03 AM

There’s nothing I like more than being in the comfort of my own home. My mom hosted a dinner for our family last night, and it felt great to catch up on both new and old stories (plus lots of laughs) over my mom’s home cooked food. The menu was quite extensive, but to much satisfaction she made two of my favorite dishes– noodle pudding and baked apples stuffed with dried fruit. I also love the way my mom decorated our dining room table. She spices it up differently for every occasion, and although mint green tends to remind me of spring, she made the refreshing napkins from Barneys New York work perfectly for fall with the help of some darker green accompaniments (mini pears and flower stems), sparkly candlesticks, silver pomegranate decorative pieces, and a metallic gold table liner.

Mom definitely knows best.

Beverly Hills Brownie Company

In Food, On Location on August 12, 2012 at 3:09 AM

Have a sweet tooth and a love for brownies? Then Beverly Hills Brownie Company is the perfect place for you.

I discovered the adorable pastel hued (pink, white, and green) brownie shop along North Beverly Drive when heading to some stores in the area. There are 18 varieties of flavors that appeal to everyone, from the serious chocolate lover to the vanilla-only (try the Pure Platinum Brownie). They have that gooey melt in your mouth consistency, tasting like they came right out of the oven at all times. I tried both the classic chocolate based and chocolate mint brownies; both were delicious, but I’m obsessed with the classic’s decadent richness. By the way, there’s even a red velvet brownie…brownie biscotti’s…and brownie ice cream sandwiches, perfect for these hot August days!  It’s all about options.

And not only do the brownies taste delicious, but they’re also chic looking due to their unique shape–each brownie has an edge on each side, and a center which means chewiness, sweetness, and satisfaction.

An American Girl In Paris

In Beauty, Food, On Location on August 5, 2012 at 12:02 PM

Paris has been so much fun. 10 days here, and not a dull moment. Everything from the Gerhard Richter exhibit that I saw this morning, the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibit and Galleries Lafayette and Printemps runs to constant coffee shop stops, an insane amount of Laduree and Fauchon macaroons and the constant switch between high heels and flats.

Above are some snapshots that captured the last few days. The first photo is a perfume chandelier from the Lancome spa, where I enjoyed the most incredible facial I’ve ever had: rooms with multicolored lights, a massage portion, soothing creams, and overall relaxation. The next is of a pair of H&M shoes that I purchased when my feet were absolutely killing. The third is of the Essie nail polish bar at Printemps, and following is a view of the Eiffel Tower, and a delicious rhubarb and apple crumble with a scoop of “biscuit” ice-cream, which was the perfect replacement to “the cherry on top.”

Back to NYC tomorrow. Although I love Paris very, very much, there’s no place like home, and a few busy days in the city before a weekend in LA awaits.

Paris Snapshots

In Food, On Location, On Sydney on August 2, 2012 at 2:22 AM

Paris is definitely the city of lights, and without a doubt the city of love. The feeling when walking down streets such as the Champs de Elysee, Le Marais and rue Saint-Honoré is not like any other. There is always something beautiful to look at, chic to buy (self control!), and delicious to eat. And although I’ve been to Paris quite a few times, I get more and more amazed by the city every time I visit. Above are some snapshots of the week thus far, and below are some of my favorite songs that are keeping me to the beat while bustling on the Parisian streets.

Awake (Electric Guest), This Is Love (feat. Eva Simons, will.i.am), Pound the Alarm (Nicki Minaj), Dark Paradise (Lana Del Rey), It Takes Time To Be a Man (The Rapture), Skinny Love (Birdy), I Can’t Lie (Maroon 5), Whistle (Flo Rida), 1901 (Phoenix), La belle et le bad boy (MC Solaar), La vie en rose (Louis Armstrong), A Star Is Born (feat. J.Cole, Jay-Z)

Eating In

In Food on August 1, 2012 at 4:43 AM

When away on vacation for a good amount of time, there are some nights when I’m just not in the mood to go out for dinner, and staying in my hotel room is more appealing.

So that’s what my mom, my brother and I decided to do last night. We stopped at our favorite supermarket at Le Bon Marche department store and picked up a bunch of food for a hotel room picnic.

We bought a variety of cheese (my favorite was a goat cheese topped with apricots), olive breads, butter (which by the way is unreal in this country), fruit salad, duck pate, olives, a limited edition Tropicana white peach and cherry juice (so not like what we have in the US), thin chocolate chip cookies, raspberry madeleine’s and mini fruit pate–my little brother Mitchell set up the dessert.

It was absolutely delicious, and the perfect reward for being on my toes for 10 hours straight.

Cambridge Satchel’s Pastel Paradise

In Accessories, Food on July 11, 2012 at 12:00 AM

The Cambridge Satchel Company just launched a limited edition pastel collection, which not only satisfies sweet tooth indulgers (they remind me of savory macaroons) and pastel adorers, but neon lovers too.

The famed Brit brand, whose popularity seemed to explode at NYFW last September, has gifted us with their signature satchels in mouth-watering cotton candy pastel hues that are the perfect swatches of color for summer: Lemon, Lilac, Rose Pink, and Duck-Egg Blue.

Cambridge Satchel Company’s classic accessory features a structured body, an adjustable shoulder strap and silver buckle closures, all for easy, secure, and stylish access.

Although I covet this limited edition collection (specifically the Lilac), I still adore my highlighter shades of pink, green, yellow, orange, and blue. But I must say, there is a time when an outfit could use a sweet, soft and girly hint of pastel.

The accessory is priced under $150, a fab handbag deal no matter what season, and can go into the early months of fall.

A sweet treat? I think so.

Sydney’s Fourth of July Dessert Table

In Decor, Food on July 3, 2012 at 12:00 AM

The Fourth of July is the most festive of summer holidays.

Ever since I was little, I’ve loved the combination of the symbolic colors -red, white and blue-, the loud and glistening fireworks, the parade on Main Street in Southampton, and our classic family BBQ, including burgers, hotdogs, corn on the cob, cold salads and more.

The day brings a special giddiness, and it’s not just because we have a day off (although this year it’s made things more complicated since it’s fallen on a Wednesday).

I decided to create a Fourth of July dessert table, which is simple and easy (while stylish and ultimately delicious) to pull together last minute, all in the color pallet of red, white, and blue. I stuck to affordable and festive decor: plates, napkins, a tablecloth and a centerpiece.

The wine glasses hold sparkling cranberry juice, which can be spiked for drinkers, and I picked up some of my favorite summer fruit at a local supermarket.

The baked goods, which complete the table, are from the best old-fashioned bakery in town, Ye Olde Bake Shoppe (17 Windmill Lane  Southampton, NY 11968): fresh, colorful, festive, tasty, and chic desserts.

Orsay’s floating island

This week has been busy with family events: luncheons, dinners, the whole nine yards. I don’t think I’ve worn a pair of pants in days, just dresses, dresses, and dresses. Above are some snapshots from the past few days that I simply adore.

First of all, I love peonies; the way they smell, the way they look, and the way the blossom.

At special luncheons, my mom likes to add little gifts at everyone’s seat and got Godiva chocolate truffles on a stick for lunch at Orsay.

I figured it’s probably time to give my camera some credit, as it’s what makes my blog possible.

I find that there is something relaxing and romantic about a candlelit dinner. I like to experiment with different types of candles, both short and long, but the other night I used long, glittery sticks.

Lastly, one of my favorite desserts is floating island, especially the one at Orsay restaurant. I love the decadency of the meringue, the carmel drizzle and reduction surrounding, and the two or three toasted almonds placed on top.

What are some of your midweek adores?

A Hamptons Sunday Brunch

In Food on June 3, 2012 at 12:00 AM

I absolutely love Sunday brunch.

It’s been a tradition in my family ever since I was born, and it’s something that I look forward to every weekend.

Although we sometimes go out for brunch at a restaurant, my mom’s brunch is the ultimate.

It’s the perfect way to relax after a busy weekend with homemade dishes, family, and the comfort of being at home.

I especially enjoy when we have brunch at home in the Hamptons.

We have the option of eating outdoors, but when we stay indoors, it still feels like we’re sitting outside with the open windows, hovered by trees.

My mom’s brunch “menu” changes every weekend, although I especially enjoy her 3 berry pancakes, fresh mellon from the farmer’s market, crispy turkey bacon, and a variety of juices served in my favorite Hamptons cups.

Bon appétit!

This weekend was spent all around the city, busy from morning until night. Yesterday was one of those cool, enjoyable days where I could just walk and walk for hours. It helped that New Yorkers were a bit crazy on margaritas for Cinco de Mayo, and even stores paid tribute to the celebration. I was in many neighborhoods, from the Upper East Side and Union Square to Soho and the West Village. Beautiful weather makes for superb shopping, and some of my purchases will be featured in upcoming outfit posts. Until then, above are some of my favorite weekend snapshots.

It’s such a beautiful day! The sun is shining and the city is as lively as ever. I spent the day in the West Village and Union Square with some of my best friends. It was the perfect day to explore, from stores that we’ve never heard of to tasting new foods and even sitting on stoops, which is something that we don’t tend to do. It was also great to return to those that I’m constantly found in, like candy store Sockerbit.

It felt great to walk around for an endless amount of time, especially in Union Square, my city’s version of a Farmer’s Market. Indulge in my cravings above!

Monday Cravings

In Beauty, Food, Shoes on April 9, 2012 at 12:20 AM

passover macaroons

There’s nothing like a Monday after an extended holiday weekend. For one it makes the start of the week even busier than usual, and it also makes a week without an extra day off feel longer!

However, I’m heading to Las Vegas later in the week, so I have something to look forward to…but there is so much to do before then! I’ve already been brainstorming on what to bring, pieces that are sexy and full of colors, cutouts and embellishments.

Until then, I am craving these three items: Passover macaroons with chocolate drizzle, limited-editon Aldo colour block sandals, and Eres nail lacquers.

Macaroons are a delicious and easy dessert to make for the holiday. It’s fun to experiment with flavors, like raspberry, chocolate, and salted caramel, each one fulfilling a particular tastebud.

aldo eakins colour block sandals

These Aldo sandals scream Vegas with the black fringe, patch worked textures and pops of color. With a sexy straight leg pant and sequin blouse, a tuxedo short, or a tight dress, these shoes are classic while still funky and cool.

eres nail lacquers

I love a good nail polish, so I was very happy to hear that ultra-glam bathing suit company Eres came out with these nail lacquers. I love the juicy fruity hues and look forward to trying them out on both my fingernails and toenails–orange first! Talk about nailing it!

PS: I found this recipe for peep s’mores– definitely have to indulge after Passover!

Stylish and Delicious St. Patrick’s Day Treats

In Food, Holiday on March 17, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Style Solutions readers! NYC is typically crazy on this day of the year; bars are filled to capacity, streets are crowded due to the parade along 5th Avenue and there is a whole lot of green.

I’m all about showing holiday spirit through an outfit, but this does not mean that every item we wear on St. Patrick’s Day has to only be green or just one shade. Take advantage of this season’s pastel trend by going for some mint hues and combining them with complementary pastels; it will make for a celebratory and chic look.

1. Nine West $89, 2. Essie $8, 3. Romwe, 4. Topshop $18, 5. Zara, 6. Proenza Schouler $198, 7. Fossil $61, 8. Equipment $250, 9. RAIN $72,  10. Proenza Schouler, 11. Shiseido $33,  12. Matiko Echo $193

I also love a delicious St. Patrick’s Day dinner; corn-beef, cabbage, Irish soda bread..the whole 9 yards. My mom is a great cook and will make a themed dinner later in the week, but until then I am mouthwatering over this mint chocolate chip cookie recipe and this homemade mint Oreo recipe.

It’s a gorgeous Wednesday in the city. The sun is out, it’s going to reach 70 degrees, Reed Krakoff updated their windows on Madison Avenue with a tropical collection, and the countdown to spring break is almost over–just 2 days away.

This weather has made for some fruity drinks (I particularly like infused water), floral prints, bright colors, losing an hour of sleep thanks to the time change, and spring cleaning. I have an urge to be outside, whether eating lunch outdoors or walking in Central Park.

Off to search for a springy ensemble for lunch at Mezzaluna (the best chopped salad and tropical iced tea). I’m thinking a little dress, open-toed shoes, some arm candy, and my Reed Krakoff boxer bag.

What’s your spring fever routine?

Sydney Goes Downtown Weekend Casual

In Food, On Sydney on March 5, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Top: Topshop, Pants: Lululemon, Shoes: Misc. store in Italy, Jacket: Galleries Lafayette, Scarf: c/o Ash & Dans Handbag: Balenciaga, Bracelet: J.Crew, Ring: c/o Melinda Maria, Sunglasses: Velvet Eyewear

I wore this black and beige number for my eating adventure downtown on Saturday. The busy work week finally hit me, so all I wanted was to be comfortable in my outfit. This is the time when having a great selection of staples comes in handy. Since my clothes were on the casual side, I used my sparkly J.Crew chain bracelet that I bought last year and a new Melinda Maria cocktail ring for a pop of glamour. This is my first pair of cat-eye shape shades. I’ve always admired them on the runway and on people I know, but I always stuck to my oversized round frame; I’m excited to have branched out to this style thanks to Velvet Eyewear founder, Cindy.

One of the stops I made was at Murray’s Cheese Shop. I got caught up in the dried pasta area (my guilty pleasure), all of which looked delicious. I brought some home for dinner while reading Glamour and then falling asleep to Project Runway Allstars.

Popbar’s Fashionable Popaholic

In Clothing, Food on March 4, 2012 at 1:27 AM

Yesterday was another Saturday spent downtown, but this week in Gramercy Park and Christopher Street. I felt like I was on an eating adventure, trying different food all day–from Murray’s Cheese and Amy’s Bread to Sockerbit and my new favorite place, Popbar, an adorable popsicle shop with hand-crafted gelato on a stick made with all natural ingredients.

The popsicles are extraordinarily refreshing and tasty, coming in a wide range of flavors such as banana and blood orange, which are two of my favorites. You can customize your popsicle experience by dipping them into chocolate sauce and toppings such as coconut. If you think it’s a little too soon in the season for a popsicle, don’t worry; Popbar has come out with Hot Chocolate on a Stick by simply adding steamed milk to their chocolatey goodness.

Talk about a solution!

Below is an outfit that I’ve created inspired by my two favorite Popbar flavors, banana and blood orange. I’m a total popaholic!

1. Zara $129, 2. ASOS $16, 3. Equipment $184, 4. Current/Elliot $260, 5. ASOS $18, 6. Chanel $33, 7. J.Crew $328, 8. Velvet Eyewear $159
