A Little Trip to Two Hands in NYC

It’s been a while since I’ve last been there, but it’s definitively a place hard to forget, filled with buzzing noises and great interior design. Quite obviously, the first things that I noticed when I entered the place were the unique, yet beautiful clouds hanging from the ceiling and the messy-looking vintage brick walls.

It was bigger than expected and as it was only 4pm it wasn’t that busy either, leaving a few tables available. Me and my friend sat down and a friendly waitress came to greet us and hand the menus. The prices are reasonable depending on your order, not exactly cheap but also not too expensive. We both made our order upon the various options of snacks and beverages, me having an Acai bowl and a latte and my friend having a butter croissant and a cappuccino. A quick note if you're vegan, they have the option of adding almond milk to your coffee for an additional $0.50 instead of normal milk.

Meanwhile, we just chatted and enjoyed the hipsterish-vibe environment and also the mixture of locals and tourists, and plenty of people Instagramming their pictures away. Neither did we resist, we had to at least take a couple of snaps for memories right?! Our order arrived soon and it literally looked as good as it tasted. The coffee was presented with art in a heart shape and tasted delicious (well, they are known for amazing coffee!); the Acai bowl definitely fueled me up on energy, also being very nutritious. For me, the portion was just right although I’ve heard people complaining about the small size. Both the latte and the bowl cost around $14. Overall, I had a great experience and would really recommend! I’d also just like to point out that there are a few people who complain about the service, prices, and the fact that it’s so crowded on certain days but honestly I was lucky to not have had any of those problems yet it can vary so just watch out! Hope you have a lovely time if you visit and make sure to snap a few photos too.

Sunset & Rosé Wine

Well...not really..but I wish hehe! I'll get there one day though :) sunsets are one of the things that constantly amaze me, it has such a unique beauty and especially when seen at the beach; it's one of the most peaceful moments there is to appreciate. It'd honestly be a dream to be able to see such a nature-masterpiece every day whilst going on long walks and burying your feet in the misty sand...
