I'm Steffy, and I live in my favorite place on earth, Long Beach NY with my two loves & our dachshund. In this space we share our adventures around NY, cozy days at home and tons of outfits! Grab a cup of coffee and lets get to know each other!


My Fave NY Coffee Spot..

Contrary to popular belief, I live in Long Island, not NYC. Long Island is quite different than the city - it is suburbia. The houses are bigger, most residents get around by car not train, you can't walk everywhere, and it is sort of small towny. It also lacks the trendy-hipster-brick walls and exotic lighting hanging in random places type restaurants that speckle the streets of brooklyn. I like those... and often miss them on weeks I can't make it into BK or NYC. Gentle Brew is literally the only place in my city that gives me that vibe.

Usually on weekends or days off you can find us here - with Claude since they're pet friendly! Here's some snaps from a coff date this weekend. Blueberry waffles & Cafe ole included! ♥

How do you beat the suburbia blues?


  1. Cute, I want those waffles

  2. so glad i saw u for a sec the other night! we gotta hang more soon! x

  3. the coffee + the waffles look so incredible! i'm always searching for new gems in my neighborhood that give me the big city vibes with the comfort and simple calamity of the neighborhood i am currently living in. while i am just a quick 15 minute train from the city, it's so easy to find myself within the same 2 mile radius for days at a time. for me, finding a new little wine bar or cheese shop in my neighborhood helps me fall in love with my little suburban enclave all over again.


  4. Lovely post. I really enjoy coming to your blog.

  5. ooh, the waffles and coffee look good! and i'm still not used to seeing you with red hair, haha! it looks, nice, though! :-) xx
