Ever wonder how they create that cute lil leafy design in your latte?
No? Well I posted this video, so you might as well just watch and learn.
Came across this on youtube today. Thought I’d share. Can’t wait til the actual show comes out. Interesting decision to go with television instead of film.
I often work while passively watching a Law & Order series marathon. Any will do, from UK to Criminal Intent. Tonight it’s Criminal Intent; this particular episode titled “Pas de Deux” aired in 2004, a year before the actor playing the villain, Charlie Rocket committed suicide out on his farm in CT. Sorry I often go off on tangents—get used to it.
Anyways the initial crime scene in this episode is what caught my attention. It was a coffee shop! So bright and spacious and their display cases; oh my. I had to find out where they were. Of course I went and completed a series of searches on Google (My own detective work.) And Voila! The scene was shot at Devon & Blakely. Not completely sure which one, since they have several midtown locations, but I will keep you updated. This case is not officially closed.
The sole purpose of my trip to Paris this year was to go to Shakespeare and Company. My love of books began at a young age. In Nigeria we start to attend school at the age of three. I remember my first book, it was an English language manual filled with children’s stories.
When my family packed up and headed to the states, my parents attempted to leave my book collection, but I cried so hard that they allowed me to carry a separate little suitcase on the plane filled with my treasures.
When I moved out of my parents home in New Jersey, my father took on the task of sending me my book collection. “Chinonso you have over two hundred books!” He exclaimed in his accented English.
Okay so you get the point; I love books! I’m surprised that I’ve waited this long to become a writer.
Shakespeare and Company will always be my number one choice. But since I live in New York I had to find some local favorites.
Large selection of used books. They also have a great occult section.
They have a cute little outdoor area in the back where you can sit and relax.
I never feel too guilty buying a huge stack of paperbacks. It’s for charity!
I love this space.
Also hosts language classes.
RIP Mr. Whitman
My sister took part in a fantasy make-up competition. The name of her look was Winter Ice Queen. Pretty amazing. They applied real pieces of broken mirror to her face and hands. Bet she had to have a lot of people scratch her nose for her.
