Joining the Loop Still Possible!

Yesterday afternoon, we had our first Fashion Illustration class at Loop of the Loom! It was amazing and fun! We made figure collages out of magazine pages, and they turned out really nicely! (Pictures coming soon)

With love,
The Bird and The Worm

P.S. There's still time for last minute sign ups! *See recent post on Loop of the Loom for information.

Momo what?

Momofuku that is. It is in the East Village, with other Momofuku restaurants very near by. Such as the Momofuku Noodle Bar. Three words describe how I feel about their ramen noodles. Best. Ramen. EVER. I thought I had to make my point very clear. The noodle bar is at 171 1st Ave, and the milk bar located at 207 2nd Ave. When David Chang (owner of all the Momofukus) means milk bar, it is basically just a place with sweets and also quick bits to eat. They have amazing soft serve in a few flavors, but by far my favorite is "cereal milk". Now hold on, I thought it was strange too but it is probably the best soft serve I have ever eaten. It tastes JUST like the milk of frosted flakes. And if you were wonder what the hell momofuku means, it literally translates to "Lucky Peach" in Japanese. Just go, you have to try it yourself. I can not describe how beautiful a concept this is with my words. David Chang is a genius, and a huge gift from God. :)

Vegan Cupcakes? Yuck?

Not at all! BabyCakes NYC is a quaint cupcake shop that sells cupcakes and other baked goods that are gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, casein-free, egg-free, refined sugar-free, vegan, and kosher. They simply replace the regular ingredients of these fine baked delights with ingredients such as brown rice flour, spelt, canola and cold pressed virgin coconut oil, and agave nectar. Although a lot of people (who are not vegetarians/vegans) usually just remain satisfied with their usual cupcakes, these cupcakes are probably THE best vegan cupcakes I've ever had. I rarely ever enjoy eating vegan pastries and other baked goods, but these cupcakes are divine and enchanting. Even if you are not a vegetarian/vegan, you must try these cupcakes for yourself! Their flavors include, red velvet, vanilla, chocolate, banana, lemon, and lots more!

Their lovely Cookie Sandwiches ;)

P.S. There only location (for now) is in the East Village in NYC. Fortunately, if you do not live in NYC, BabyCakes NYC ships their baked goods throughout the US via Fed Ex overnight. All goods are baked fresh that day and are shipped out and arrive at your door the next day. :)
