New York

As I said on Thursday, I'm back from New York!

I fell in love with Lee Ufan's "From Point to Line" series of work, that were being shown as part of the Korean artist and philosopher's showcase at the Guggenheim Museum. A peaceful, beautiful exhibition.

We spent a few hours in Coney Island's Amusement Park. It's a peninsula and beach in southern Brooklyn, best known as the site of old fashioned amusement parks.
It was fun to soak up the sun on the beach, dip in the surprisingly warm ocean water, and look at New York from a different perspective. The dirty giant plushes, weird music, and antique rides made the atmosphere odd and nostalgic. It is not a lavish, luxurious place, but it absolutely has history and personality.

I went a bit crazy when shopping!

I'm usually not that into Black and White, but this dress is so easy to wear that I made an exception!
Bamboo tray with six inset bamboo saucers, six porcelain espresso cups, and six stainless-steel espresso spoons that rest across the cups. 
It is a chopsticks rest, but I just bought one to put on my desk for inspiration.
The best scissors ever!
Finally bought the sandals I was swooning over!
I needed a camera backpack and I really, really love this one. It's a bit expansive but definitely worth its price. I found it at B&H, a giant electronics superstore where I wanted to buy all the photo stuff! 
- Robin Wallet - Hobo - $78
I found it in a lovely little shop in NoLIta. A gift for my best friend.
- Matryoshka Measuring Cups - MOMA Store - $12
I love the MOMA Store nearly as much as I love the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) itself.

Of course, I did a lot more than that, and saw a lot more lovely things than these. I don't want to bore you with my vacation stories, so I'll stop here. Thanks for reading!
