Rooms are inspired by actual dreams. But, have you ever dreamed of eating cotton candy in a laundry mat I kno I haven’t. However, this place is what instagram stories are made of. Bring someone patient enough to take pictures. Staff is very friendly and gave us as much time as we needed in each room.placeholder://placeholder://

Dekalb market – BK

The Dekalb Market in Brooklyn is super cool. It’s kind of like an indoor Smorgasbord.

As soon as you take the escalator down you see the famous Kats Deli. 😍<< ey also have a Fortina located in the Hall. Lots of choices so I had to narrow down my options. After a quick walk around this is what I chose: Potato Pierogis @ the Pierogi Boys topped with sour cream bacon and scallions ..cuz everything is better with bacon. 🥓 I've had my share of pierogis since my mom is full blown polish. But, these pierogis are super fresh and in a league of their own. Boiled to perfection. 👌 Icecream from Ample Hills Creamery 🍦 ooooey gooooey buttercake deliciousness. The word butter cake says it all! I was so tempted to take home a pint of it. However, we had a long drive home and I was afraid it would melt. Arepas de choclo from Arepa Lady came highly recommended. This was the main reason I stopped to try one. The corn tortilla and cheese melts in your 👄 mouth! Extremely filling ! Staff was super helpful and friendly!

I went into a food coma on my way home. 🏡😴

Brooklyn-Williamsburg

This Sunday I wanted to check out the Brooklyn Flea Also, I wanted to check out street art and in Williamsburg there is plenty! We walked around and checked out all the vendors. They had the typical vendors.. Antique clothing..collectible toys..jewelry and food vendors. I enjoyed browsing around even though it was pretty hot out. We ate some tacos from a vendor (steak and chorizo) and they were pretty good. Also we got freshly baked donuts (cinnamon sugar and dulce de leche with almonds) along with an iced coffee. The donuts at these markets are always freshly baked and amazing. We never have the willpower to not purchase one. After that we wandered around taking pictures of street art. I am getting more into photography so I wanted to get some cool shots with the street art.IMG_5327-0.JPG

Brooklyn Flea-ParkSlope and DiFara’s Pizza

I have been going to Flea Markets since I was a young girl. They used to have them at the Yonker’s Raceway in Yonkers, NY every Sunday. I would go and make my mother and father buy me a bunch of junk.(like a heart shaped pillow with Dylan from 90210 on it LOL.) I have heard good things about the Brooklyn Flea and they have a few locations in Fort Greene, Williamsburg, and Park Slope. And so one cloudy Saturday afternoon with not much to do we decided to drive out. We went to the Park Slope Flea It was really cool, they had tons of old collectible toys and shirts. They had jewelery, food and clothing vendors. We got a delicious fresh made doughnut. I got a cool looking handmade key necklace with Brooklyn engraved on it. On the way back home we stopped at the famous DiFara’s Pizza(best pizza in brooklyn they say). I would have to say I agree with them. The pizza was delicious and it was worth the long wait. We ordered 2 slices and one square slice(my fav). I dunno if it was the sauce the crust or the fresh basil it was delicious! After the first bite I took I was kicking myself for not getting a whole pie. It’s a very small pizzeria with not much seating. We sat in the car and stuffed our face.

#Brooklyn

I have been to Coney Island once with my dad back when I was 5 years old. I was too short to go on any of the rides so that made me upset. I was a lil dare devil when I was younger. However, they did let me on the cyclone (go figure). That is all I really remember so I have been meaning to head back for years. Finally, on the 5th of July, me and my hubby ventured out to BK. Parking was bad, we parked pretty far and it was only 2 hr. muni meter parking. We had to walk a bit but the weather was good so we didn’t mind. Our first stop was the cyclone.. no line, which was awesome (i have no patience and I hate waiting)and we paid $18 for the both of us to ride.(Yikes) We rode in the last cart, suggested by the ride operator. It was fun. I love roller coasters and it wasn’t as rough as I thought it was going to be. After that we walked the boardwalk and “people watched”. The beach was a zoo so we passed on that. We played one of those water gun races and my hubby won me a giant plush donut (on first Try!). Afterwards we headed to the souvenir shop, bought some Saltwater Taffy and I got a Tank top that said Brooklyn on it. I know I’m not the only person who needs to get a souvenir wherever they go..Am I? After, we went on the wonder wheel ($14 for the both of us) and that was more fun than I thought it was going to be. I chose the “swinging cart” even tho my hubby gets sick easily on those type of rides. It took me by surprise how much it actually does swing but I loved it. Very short wait for this ride too! After that we had to add more time to the meter then we went to eat at The Original Nathan’s Hot Dogs. The lines were pretty crazy here and also at Nathan’s on the Boardwalk. We got our hot dogs and cheese fries and it was very good. We were lucky enough to get a table and sit down to eat (I’m a messy eater). After that we went back to the boardwalk and got a beer at Paul’s daughter Beer Bar (I chose a Brooklyn Summer Ale and a Sweet Point ). On the way back to the car, we saw AND BOUGHT fried oreos! I think i gained about 5lbs during this short trip but it was sooo worth it. #YOLO. On the way home I figured I would cross another thing off my Summer List and walk the Brooklyn Bridge. So we walked the entire length of the bridge trying to burn off some of those calories. We took lots of pictures and just strolled. We had a great day out in BK and it had me contemplating buying a brownstone out there..(we also stopped at a convenience store and purchased a power ball ticket hoping to make that dream come true).
