{ Chic Coffee } Bourbon Coffee:: West Village, NYC

Bourbon Coffee|NYC|Chic VoyageBourbon Coffee|NYC|Chic Voyage

 I tried to begin writing my first novel at home, but living in New York, I was constantly sidetracked by the construction taking place in my apartment building.

And so, in search of an alternative, I packed up my laptop and attempted to find a quiet spot at a local coffee chain. What I found instead were places packed with masses of people, filled more with distractions than inspiration.

Then one day I walked exactly one block east from a major coffee chain, only to discover the cutest cafe with plenty of seating and—if that weren’t enough—delicious espresso. It turned into a wonderful and productive afternoon.

{ Chic Shops } Fab208:: East Village,NYC

fab208

My Review of Fab208 in the East Village Neighborhood of Manhattan.

Location/Neighborhood: Away from the hustle and bustle of St.Mark’s. You feel as if you stumbled upon a hidden gem.

Over twenty-years old with electric pink walls Fab 208 offers a memorable shopping experience. If you’re a fan of the punk label Smith &Smith or a similar style of clothing then you will absolutely fall in love with this shop. Jo Custance-Smith and her husband Alan design their own collection and also run the boutique. With a great selection of boldly patterned dresses and unique vintage inspired accessories, you can tell that this store is a labor of love. You’re sure to score a great piece from their collection that will have everyone asking “Where did you get that?”

Best New Mexican Food In NYC

Had a wonderful time at La Flaca. I took my date from New Mexico here because they claimed they had AUTHENTIC New Mexican food. They certainly did! My date was very impressed and the food was Uh-mazing. The dishes tasted so fresh and my shrimp tacos were so well seasoned.

La Flaca is definitely a Chic Pick.

{Chic Eats} Brindle Room:: East Village NYC

For my second first date, I took Mr. Georgia to the Brindle Room in East Village. They are known for their burger but I wanted him to try their take on Southern grits. He wasn’t a fan so we switched meals. He took my burger and I happily consumed the rest of the grits.

Changes To The Instagram Popular/Explore Page

newinstagrampopularpage

I’m sure you fellow Instagram Addicts or social media managers have noticed the changes made to Instagram this past week. Along with a refresh of the ‘follow’ button there is also a new way of displaying photos on Instagram’s Explore Page. You now see some of your friends or people you follow on there with less than 20 likes at times. No they’re not buying Instagram ad space. Instagram now displays photos that are popular from people you follow. You also see popular photos from people similar to those you follow and that use certain hashtags, most likely ones that you use. This way you can still discover new people but they’re people you’re more likely to follow.

Instagram has also gotten rid of a large number of spam accounts. It looks like they’re trying to get back to their roots. When Instagram was all about sharing snapshots of your human experience and making new friends rather than selling a product or ideal.

What do you think of the new changes? Comment below, tweet your thoughts or let me know on my Instagram page.
