International Ice Cream Day and 3 Places in NYC where you can get a good ice creams :)

Yay! Happy International Ice Cream Day! I mean who don't love ice cream? 
Personally I could have ice cream all day every day if I could, seriously! 

Please just don't ask me what my fave flavor is coz I won't be able to answer it hahaha! I love them all!

Quickly want to tell of of three places in NYC that serves awesome ice creams, are you ready?

Lets start our Ice Cream trip in Chinatown. There are two places here that I absolutely love!

TAIYAKI NYC, located at Baxter Street, right off the Canal Street. Small cute shops that serves ice cream in insta-famous fish waffles. First time me and my daughter went there was in Winter! I know who in the right mind eats ice cream in Winter hahha. But we really wanted to try the Unicorn Ice Cream so bad! so
 don't blame us! 

They have most common flavors like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, matcha. Serve in either cup, cone or fish waffle with either red bean or custard filling, plus you get topping and drizzle :) 

Second time we went there, my daughter got regular vanilla ice cream in fish custard waffle and I got matcha ice cream in matcha cone with condensed milk drizzle! yum!

Second place in Chinatown is STAX Ice Cream and Doughnut Shop right on Grand Street. This place is bigger then Taiyaki. You can easily sit down and enjoy your ice cream. 
And here we have great flavors like Jasmine Milk Tea, Matcha Green Tea, Fruitty Pebbles , 
Cornflake Bourbon and my fave UBE. 

And the best part you can sample your ice cream before ordering! yes! Sophia and I went there twice and we got first time Madagascar Vanilla in pink vanilla cone and I got UBE in matcha cone. Second time Sophia got S'ores in vanilla cone and I got one scoop of UBE and one scoop of Cornflake Bourbon, both times I got condensed milk drizzle. 

another fun thing that you can get ther are doughnuts! Cereal inspired! They are topped with cinnamon squere crunch, fruitty pebbles, nutella etc. Annnnnd if you want you can make a ice cream doughnut sandwich! Haven't try but yum!

Third cool and recently discovered by my ice cream place is located right off 5th ave on 32nd Street. Besfren, Korean dessert place inspired by Korean Fairy Tale :)
Such a cute little place located in the heart of NYC. not only they serve a good ice cream but also rice cakes that are delish! 
But we are here for ice cream people! Me and my bestie from work went out Friday for lunch and got our self an ice cream. Matcha-Taro! yum both flavors are soooo good ! and our ice cream come decorated with a gorgeous flower :) 

So that is it for now! :) I am on a look out for more ice cream places :) I make sure to update you once I find and new spot :)

OMG they are even more stunning in person! The colors in both palettes are so beautiful and so pigmented! I am not joking, Colourpop Cosmetics makes such an amazing eye shadows!

Once the palettes are out of the outer packaging, both are square white compact with metallic writings.  Sol have orange metallic writings and sun look alike designs. Mar have blue/teal metallic writings and have like a water waves design. Which makes coz Sol is means sun in Spanish and Mar means Ocean :) So both palettes are inspired by Sun and Ocean and I am so in love with it! ANd the best part? Both palettes have mirror! Woohoo!

Sol Palette ~ beautiful warm toned oranges, corals, browns all in one :) I bet those colors won't look flattering on me but omg for $12 I could not get it.

It will contain combination of shimmery opals, bright pinks and soft, wearable violets. With this palette they got me on shimmering opals :) I personally didn't see it, but it was at the event for sure :) Just out of my reach.

So yes this palettes also lands on my wish list. Oh geez who am I kidding I want the whole collection at home with me LOL! Wait did I tell you the price? No ? guys $4.99 for each palette! $4.99 for high pigment palettes! YES!!!!!

Before I moved on on other products I got. Let me quickly mention the palettes I don't have but they also will be launching. All eye shadow palettes. Sorry I didn't take pics of any of it. Coz after breakfast the palettes were all over the place and well it was hard to track them down. Next time I have to arrive early so I can take pics before they all disappear LOL. 
So anyways there will be "9 Piece Eye Defying Kit", design to create captivating eye looks. Available in two color ways:"New Nudes" ~  mix of build able cranberries and warm browns. and  "Orchids"~ selection of berries and orchids.  They will retain for $6.99 each.

I have one or two sets of this set already and I must say that they are amazing! the lip liner glides on so good and its so creamy.
