On Monday I was looking around Tribeca area and found this cute litte restaurant called Kitchenette to have a lunch.
I love those not-trying-to-be-too-fancy places, where you can just feel very cosy and homely. For example when you order a coffee they will bring you a generous cup full of just hot and simple coffee..and refill it whenever you want. After that I really don't feel like ever going to Starbucks again.
Of course it would have been nice to order something traditional, something 'American' but I went for a Mediterrenean salad and was very happy with my choice. I'm sure I'm going to re-make it at home, super-easy, just some greens, roasted eggplant and peppers, artichoke hearts, handful of fresh mozzarella, all tossed over with basil vinaigrette. I think I might have to go back there for a breakfast one day, because a herb and goat cheese omlette sounds just too good and I haven't had pancakes in a while... gingerbread ones with pumpkin butter would be nice as I'm already in a holiday mood.

Walking all the way through the Canal Street in pouring rain. Maybe not one of my favourite things to do here but still thrilling.



Last Sunday was perfect for visiting some flea markets around Manhattan. Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the Brooklyn one. You should check for more information, they have one marketplace on West 25th Street and the other one on West 39th. I'm sure they also have some special holiday markets coming up! This time I didn't draw much attention to vintage clothing and jewelry (of which they had a fantastic selection). I was more fascinated by all the other bric-a-brac and interior design items.
 I have a few days left in New York and I'm already very tired of all those big luxury department stores, so I'm asking does anybody have a good guide for vintage and thrift shopping in New York? What places are your favourites?

Stand @ zinefest berlin


we shared the stand with Antoine Duthoit (Cagibi FR)

Whitney Museum of American Art


Visited Whitney Museum, which is dedicated to American art on Saturday. I wasn't allowed to take photos inside the exhibitons so here's just few from the museum shop and cafe I . Two things which tend to be the most interesting things about museums, no, really, I actually enjoyed Sherrie Levine's and sculptor David Smith's exhibitons. And the cafe called 'Untitled' downstairs was very nice as well. I've never seen kale in Estonia so I ordered a crispy kale salad with beetroot straight away.

 Thank you so much, Jas and Aman! It was great spending the end of fall together!
 See you next year, at our wedding!

Chelsea girls


I decided to avoid that crazy and hectic Black Friday shopping and take a walk in Chelsea, Meatpacking District and Greenwich Village. It all felt so good - sun was shining, people seemed to be happy, sitting at outdoor cafes, drinking coffee, recovering from Thanksgiving. I sat on Le Pain Quotidien's terrace and enjoyed an artichoke quiche. Hard to believe it's actually December next week! Trying to postpone the upcoming winter as long as possible!

The infamous Hotel Chelsea, where Sid Vicious's girlfriend was found stabbed, Andy Warhol's 1966 movie "Chelsea Girls", starring Factory Superstars Viva and Nico was captured and Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, Edie Sedgwick among many others have stayed.

Store windows keep inspiring and surprising. Mostly Bergdorf Goodman's.
