Street Snaps - Tokyo Rebel/Baby, the Stars Shine Bright NYC Store Opening!

It was a momentous day on Saturday, July 19th.  Tokyo Rebel and Baby, the Stars Shine Bright opened its doors for business, attracting Lolitas and Japanese fashion lovers (and awe struck passerbys) far and wide (some as far as Canada!).

I managed to take a few girls in line who wanted to dress their best for the special occasion.

Cupcake of the Week: Sweet Buttons Desserts

Cherry Blossom and Lychee Panna Cotta, Orange Creamsicle, and Chocolate Mousse
Stopped by this place after a quick shopping trip to the Lower East Side.  Sweet Buttons Dessert is really cute and purple, and their cute chalkboard menu attracted me the most.  Their cupcakes are alot like Baked by Melissa but with a more gourmet taste -- especially with flavors like Chocolate Nutella, Pistachio, and Lemon Curd.  They also had seasonal ones like Firecracker and Orange Creamsicle.

I chose an Orange Creamsicle, which was a vanilla cake with orange marmalade filling and an orange slice on top!  It was quickly devoured and tried not to buy another.  Though at $1.50 it is definitely a treat worth indulging.

In addition to cupcakes they had single serving dessert cups and tarts!  If you are in the area, it's definitely a place to check out and grab a bite (or 6).

Weekend Getaway at Connecticon 2014

Having been to bigger cons like New York Comic Con and Otakon, it makes me appreciate the quaint smaller cons.  With larger events you have to really plan out your day, while smaller events you have the choice of going or not going -- and it's not a great disappointment if you are not able to go you will be able to find something else to do.  In addition, I'm able to see the small con grow bigger.

This is why I'm growing to love Connecticon.
