are you a fonts enthusiast? a typophile?
find the beauty on your daily walk! take time to notice the details of your landscape.
there is nothing like seeing a great handbag in action.
plastics are our future. how can you resist plastic? it is so shiny and pleasing. I have a penchant for plastics.
chronicling my quest for the one true
have you ever noticed the similarity between nyc fire call boxes and benevolent Kannon, goddess of mercy?
every design, fashion and art magazine I read lately features some important directional artist making big contributions to their genre. and where do they live? brooklyn!
who says there are no more 'new ideas' in art and design? the newness is in the juxtaposition.
this is how I really get things done. with my little green co-worker/task-master.
clothing & accessories design
useful, economical, modular pieces that can be mix-matched in numerous
ways (because why can't fashion be useful and lasting? I think
it can!) So I say Maximize your Minimalism!

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation
current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too
sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary
jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how
about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness
of their styles.
Now doesn't this look yoguriffic! Yolato's presentation is so enticing.
The creamy smooth undulating waves. The toppings. The flavors.
I can't contain myself any longer.
I must have birthday Yolato now!
Mint chocolate chip - my favorite.
I will probably combine it with hazelnut, my other favorite.
Or maybe I will keep my options open and explore what
other other favorites I discover when I get there.
I don't think I have to say much about Yolato
to entice you, beyond the mouthwatering photos I took at the Park Avenue store. I could tell you that Yolato is a low-calorie
healthy gelato that is offered in over 100 different flavors. I could tell you that there are four locations
in New York, and one in New Jersey. I could tell you to bring $3.99 with you if you want a 'regular' or $4.99 if you want a 'grande.' But I don't need to tell you much more than the address. I have a feeling you will be paying Yolato a visit soon. I have a feeling I will too. Maybe tonight. They close at 9. The West Village location
closes at 10. Yolato
125 Park Ave (42nd Street)
New York, NY 10017
The Yolato Store on Park Avenue is just below Grand Central.
This location opened in November 2007.
Dine in: choose from a stool at the counter
or small lovely table in the window. Or take it To Go so you
can burn the calories as you eat. And then come back for more.
