Hi I am Grace I live in New York and love to go out with my friends and try new places to eat, shop, and explore. I have been scrapbooking for a while now and recently joined in on the crafting glitter wagon! I hope you enjoy my adventures and join in on the "PINK" fun. Gracemypal@aol.com
I was meeting a friend for Dinner and have not been near Delancy Street - Rivington (Downtown - NYC) in a long time and so I explored a little. Economy Candy was a treasure chest of "sweetness". Economy had just closed and I asked the cute young girl if I could just take a few quick pictures would be back another day to buy! Oh I tell you I was so glad that I could not buy anything because I would have gone nuts....not that I eat sweets but was thinking of future events I am going to and friends I could give some colorful treats to. My Favorite? The pearl colored big gumballs and of course the PINK ones.
Happy Pink Saturday! I wanted to share some Birthday treasures my sweet friend Sandy from "Sandy's Show and Tell Blog" sent me. Sandy is a such a wonderful friend whom I met in Blog land a long time ago. She is so Creative and such a beautiful soul and feel like we are family. I actually call her my Cuggina (Cousin in Italian). She sent me this adorably wrapped gift. The tag is made of fabric and it is a Princess Kitty Kat and the Oriental lady is a fan when you pop off her head...ahahaha I just thought of something, This is the Asian version of Marie Antoinette! I just cracked myself up. The first gift was an adorable pillow case of Kitty Kat Rumi likes to take a bath, and then my all time favorite piece of art "Charlotte Head" Birthday Banner. I decided she is staying out all year long because she is beautiful. I will share some more birthday goodies during the week. Thank you my Cuggina!! xoox

Walk up the "Pink" UNIQLO steps to a Laduree T-Shirt Shop! UNIQLO is a Japanese casual designer, manufacturer and retailer that opened in Hiroshima in 1984. UNIQLO in the winter has the most colorful and great priced cashmere sweaters for women and men. Sort of like an American H&M without the accessories and flashy clothing. Personally I believe there are now way too many in NYC. The first and only one was in SOHO for years. If tourists would come visit they would want to visit the SOHO store. It was a Pilgrimage! Back to Macaroons and Laduree.... UNIQLO's displays are adorable and fun. Their stairs light up from white to blue to Pink. As you walk up the Pink stairs there are so many fun Laduree T-Shirts! Picked some up for friends.

I passed by the MAC Store on Fifth Avenue and smiled! My Birthday is Monday and so not a "Happy Birthday" this year with my brother battling that ugly "C" word! This was exactly the guilty pleasure I needed. I did not need make-up but this"new" line "Baking Beauties" put a smile on my face. The display was so cute with faux cakes. No calories!!! I bought some pieces and blocked the outside world for a while. Pink was all around me and I knew it was all GOOD. Look at the painted PINK Model. I am sure she appreciated the faux no calorie cakes also. lol

Happy Pink Saturday! I went to visit a dear friend from Bermuda and her daughter in the City for Tea at American Girl Cafe and as I was walking I saw this cool Thierry Muglar Perfume Truck. They filled small vile's of perfume for you to sample. I chose Alien it smells so fresh and clean. They are best known for their "Angel" star shaped bottle. I do like Angel but wanted to try Alien. Then I walked to American Girl for a fabulous tea with Kelly and Hannah!
I hope you get to visit our Pink Saturday Hostess Beverly from "How Sweet the Sound" and all the other lovely Pink Saturday posts. xoox
Bird an incredible Sculpture made from Fabricated Steel Nails by Artist Will Ryman is in the middle of 23rd and Fifth Avenue - Flatiron in NYC. It was so interesting to see. This is right across from Madison Square Park home of the famous Shake Shack. Madison Square Park changes art pieces and hosts lots of events and festivals. The Flatiron is a wonderful area to shop and eat, one of my favorites is Eataly right on the corner of 23rd. A fun evolving area a must on your next NY visit and if you are a New Yorker have fun exploring!
Here is a glimpse of the "Flatiron" Building in the background
