Super-mini-micro-cruise:Ikea


Last weekend, with all the renovations going on and stuff, the inevitable happened: we took a trip to Ikea, my first trip ever to this blessed land of furniture, all kinds of home fixings, and more importantly, great Swedish chocolate and exotic fruit preserves. They even have gooseberry jam, the very same gooseberry that I rememebr from my childhood! Never liked it, though, but have always been fascinated by the color - translucent green.
Anyway, from Wall Street to Redhook, Brooklyn (where the New York Ikea is  located) runs a water taxi -  a cute little boat, yellow just like a regular New York cab but offerring you a much more pleasant ride.



This stylized bathroom has an incredible view over the Hudson river.


Taking pictures round Wall Street area was a unique experience for both of us: every singe person passing by, camping by or just hanging around there seems to have a camera or posing por a picture, and we were no exception. Feeling like a tourist in your own city felt reeeally weird lol






Wearing: dress Wishes Wishes Wishes, sandals Jimmy Choo, headband Bolton's, bangles Express and Laila Rowe, random sunglasses

I love your shiny bangles, they look like candy!

Did you come home with anything from ikea? I have been there in years, and the only thing I ever got was a little blue pot for my cactus.

I love the brand juxtaposition between Jimmy Choo and Express. It’s like when Sharon Stone wore a Gap t-shirt on the red carpet- so unexpected.
