The sun is shining! The mercury is rising (a bit)! And us grey, weather bogged New Yorkers are now able to hit the streets to stretch our legs and delight in the crisp fresh air. Yay! Today’s mild weather has been heaven-sent and feels like a reprieve from the arctic freeze that has had us in a choke hold for the past couple of months. I used the occasion to make a trip to the city and do some shopping in Union Square. I went to Whole foods, Forever 21 & one of my favorite bake shops, “Crumbs.” I picked up a Carrot cake cupcake as a little treat for myself before jumping on the subway back to Brooklyn.
