Mac's Landing Cafe in Brooklyn...

Last weekend on a trip to visit friends in Brooklyn, NYC, we stumbled (thanks to Groupon) upon Mac's Landing in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood. It's a hidden treasure off the beaten path that is definitely worth seeing!

Reasons to love Mac's:

1. Amazing, fresh brunch dishes. I had a Mexican Omelet full of fresh veggies and chorizo...yum!

2. Delicious and creative hot drinks and a huge selection! I had a beautiful latte with the right pinch of cocoa on top...heaven.

PS- There are crayons at every table. It was basically love at first sight!

3. Quirky, creative environment with a non-pretentious cafe vibe. And great music. And a lovely waitress / barrista. And nice patrons. And a picnic bench out front for a sunny day.

Frida Fashion...

Who isn't totally intrigued by Frida Kahlo? Β She was such a rebel in her day - a pants wearing, modern, unibrow sporting, mexican woman who didn't cook for her husband and instead traveled to NYC to show her art, which, for the record, she didn't want to become famous. Β I am also a little more obsessed than usual because of the book "The Lacuna". On Polyvore I found this great, Frida-esque inspired pin:
