10-things-i-learned-and-loved-1Happy Monday! How was your weekend? As well as catching up with some work I found time to enjoy meeting up with a friend from London for dinner, and then another friend from Philadelphia for brunch, which was so lovely! On Sunday, it poured with rain all morning and so I was extra keen to head out and find some bright colors to lift the spirits once I had finished my work in midtown. By the end of the day the sun came out (yay!) and I cooked a roast dinner for my heart mate and I – yum! Here are my ten highlights from the weekend: 1. You guys know how much I love Tacombi, right? Well, I ate brunch at their Flatiron location for the first time on Saturday and it was delicious. Plus, the restaurant interior is so on point. That mint?! Love!
