Hippo Ballerina and Breads Bakery

Isn't she sweet? This adorable gal will greet you on the Upper West Side! 

Hippo Ballerina is the creation of Danish artist Bjørn Okholm Skaarup, and the sculpture installation is a partnership with Art in the Parks, a program of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

The little strip of land at 64th Street and Broadway (across the street from Lincoln Center) will be the hippo’s home through July 31 2017. I highly suggest you stop by and say hello to her! 

Gorgeous roses for only $10 ! I try to pick up a bouquet on my way home as the flowers in the city are so fresh and last you a good week or two depending on what flowers you purchase. 

I had been hearing about Breads Bakery for a LONG time, and found they opened a new location on the Upper West Side. I just had to go in and boy, was I one happy gal!  
I picked up one of these Babka and I must say, they are unlike any other I have ever tried. They freeze well (thank god or I would have eaten the whole thing at once) and are so darn good! I like heating them a bit in my toaster oven, perfect.  
Works of art  
Look at those chocolate curls? This cake looked totally yummy!  
This was my first experience, rugelach, and it was quite interesting. I purchased (1) to enjoy while sitting down with a coffee and some savory item. I sat next to two lovely older ladies, and they said they were so happy this opened in this location. Once I took a bit of the rugelach, I was making all kind of happy sounds. The ladies were laughing at my reaction to this fantastic pastry. They were actually soft, I never had rugelach like this before. It was so amazing. So needless to say, I had to purchase a few to take home. I am very glad they are in the location as well, as I will be back again. Probably a few more times!!  

Be sure you pop by the Upper West Side, so many great places to explore and even a Hippo Ballerina!
