Magnum pop up store NYC

This Summer I decided to explore some of the pop up stores in the city, and the Magnum store in particular cough my attention, I am such an ice cream lover and I just had to go and try it for myself because all of the Instagram and Facebook ads were not enough.

When I got to the store I saw a giant line, and I had second thoughts lol… but I was determent to have my Magnum. Happy to say  the line moved very fast and yeah it was totally worth it.

This is what you get All the Ice cream bars have one standard price  $8.00 which is not bad

you get to choose from vanilla or chocolate Ice cream bar. (I’m totally Vanilla)  then you have to pick in which type of chocolate you want your bar to be deep. dark or milk chocolate.

after that you can choose 3 toppings  really hard  to chose everything looks delicious. I will suggest to get the rose petals is just a most have!!

get ready for the drizzle you can choose from milk, dark, and white.

After all those options you just want to give it a big bit, but first you will have to get a selfie of your creation. Magnum have 2 selfie stands for your ice cream bar is the cutest thing ever. they melt fast so don’t take too long with those selfies.

Cape Cod

Cape Cod Massachusetts What a fun get away, Looooveee love that place. So much to do and see, of course best Seafood ever Best clam chowder soup and Lobster rolls! They are to die for.

What can you do in Cape

If you enjoy the outdoors take your time and visit all the Island all the way to Provincetown. Go to each one of their Light houses they are so beautiful, sunsets are breathtaking. Whale Watching is a total Plus, if you get sea sick make sure you stay indoor until you reach the Whales, trust me me you will Thank me later. The Captain will let everybody know if there is something to see. While you are in cape and if you have a sweet tooth make sure to try their very famous chocolate cover cranberry!! Delicious!!

Go on a fun 3 Hours train ride at the Cape Cod Central Railroad and make reservations for lunch or dinner is such a romantic idea and you will get the feeling like if you had gone back on time. Food is also really good!

Also visit the little towns along the way they are so cute you will always find different and interesting things to see.

If you have some extra time try to make the ferry trip to Martha’s Vineyard! Who doesn’t like the to visit a beautiful and very famous beach, Farms and Festivals tons of activities to do.

Make the trip as enjoyable as possible is worth every penny, I will totally recommend to rent your own beach house if you go with a group, but if you can’t hotels are also super nice and clean! With beautiful sea views!

Train Lunch beautiful views

Washington DC

Trips are always fun!

I like visiting museums and walking around, I love how clean the streets feel in Washington D.C. There are so many things to do and see one weekend is not enough to visit all the museums and monuments.

Getting around is pretty easy you can either walk around ……A lot of walking! Or you can take the subway or as they called it in DC the Metro, which is a big different as the subway in NY since they have line of colors instead of letter like the subways here… their fare is also more expensive depends where you are going.

The Day After Tomorrow

because have been so long,

Do you have a favorite movie, I’m sure you do.

My favorite movie is “The day after tomorrow, and everything I see that movie I like to imagine myself in one of the actors. Well that was until NY weather decided to give everybody here a little bit of the movie, with a total live and real feeling. some of us would say this winter haven’t been as bad as is suppose to be for this time of the year, other would just dislike winter completely. Me, I can’t really decide yet what do I think, as looking at the weather on my phone I see more snow coming my way.

“when I saw this people waking outside with very little visibility, I really felt like I was in the movie”

Flushing – Main Street

Who doesn’t  like to travel and discover new cultures, people and places; well what if I say you can travel to Asia in New York, I know what are you thinking you have heard about  Manhattan’s Chinatown. But this time I’m talking about Flushing Main Street. I had talked about this place in my other blogs but it was very briefly so I had decide to make a blog about it.

If you have ever wonder how is too live in Asia, or become fluent in Mandarin or Korean language this is your place to be. Downtown Flushing is known for its Bakeries,  easy transportation into Manhattan and for their  “Most authentic Asian cousin”

The second most crowded place in NYC after Times Square of course.  Walking around Flushing Main Street you might feel you have left the New York. every where you look around in Main Street is not written in English anymore or at least the biggest sings is all about Chinese Mandarin or Korean. I just found that fascinating how a place can change so much, and of course the majority of the population in Flushing is Asian even going to a super market is a totally different adventure, got to say not my favorite but still fun.

I love how Flushing keeps growing with technology and their nice looking scenery, buildings and shops. And most of the food, I would lie if I say I didn’t have some favorites, because every time I’m in Flushing I like to try new things and so far i have never been disappointed. But if you are thinking on going for the first time i will share some of the places you need to try fist.

Queens Crossing Mall on the ground level food court – It’s like entering to a whole new world of the best Asian food. Japanese, Taiwanese, korean, chinese and so much more

The Coop- Original Korean style chicken

The Spot- Most delicious desserts, with a twist of adventure, all for pictures and Instagram posts.

Bubble Tea- they are pretty much in every Corner in Main street, refreshing and delicious drinks with tapioca.

XIAN famous food- Their Lamb soup is just a party of flavors, highly recommend this place. Also if you are vegetarian you will find a lot to choose from in any of this places.

Now you know if you are feeling adventures and want to try something new hop on the “Seven Train” and get of on the last stop Flushing Main Street.
