Gallery Mondays: Happy Chinese New Year

The first day of the Lunar New Year was this past weekend! Kung Hei Fat Choi!

I was at Macy’s in Queens Center Mall on Saturday morning when I came across this sensational Chinese dragon decor for the New Year celebration. My favorite color is yellow, so of course this popped right out at me. I do wish there were a few more yellow lanterns in this installation.

I think my favorite thing about depictions of Chinese dragons is the little goatee underneath their chins. The yellow goatee in this installation looks extra fluffy. I just wanna stroke it!

For those that are celebrating the Chinese New Year, enjoy!

Gallery Mondays: Peacock Wallpaper @ The Astor Room

IMAG5239

Last week I hung out with a few friends at The Astor Room in Astoria, Queens where I treated myself to a cup of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

I’d never been to The Astor Room before, but as I walked in, I immediately felt the 1920s speakeasy vibe of the place. Everything was so dark and sophisticated!

I loved the wallpaper lining the entrance by the stairwell, featuring peacocks and floral print. It’s simply gorgeous.

You should definitely swing by The Astor Room for some ice cream this summer if you get the chance!
