August 23: Veniero’s 

When you walk into a pastry shop that’s buzzing with locals, you know you’ve come to a good spot! That’s what you see when you enter Veniero’s in New York City’s East Village.

Daily Recommendation: L’Oreal Paris Detox & Brightening Pure Clay Mask

August 20/21: L’Oreal Paris Detox & Brightening Pure Clay Mask

I am obsessed with face masks and I love charcoal based face products, which is why Dark Angel from Lush is one of my most favorite face cleanser. So, I’ve been really excited to try L’Oreal’s new line of clay masks. One of its biggest incentive is the affordable price ($12.99 on Loreal.com, $9.98 on Amazon). To be fair to the product, I decided to try one mask out at a time, beginning with the detox and brightening mask for its obvious charcoal ingredient. As per direction, I applied it three times a week and have been using it for three weeks (the bottle will last me about another week). So, one jar will last approximately one month if used as directed.

Daily Recommendation: Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

August 9: Homemade Oatmeal Raising Cookies

I recently bought two containers of old fashioned Quaker Oats and after attempting for the nth time to make it a breakfast regular, I realized it was useless. I just don’t like the taste of it! On the inside of the cover, there was a recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies (my parents’ favorite). So I thought I would give it a shot. The recipe is super easy and not very time consuming.

Daily Recommendation: Chocolate Cream Cheese Croissant

August 1:  Chocolate Cream Cheese Croissant Bake

I love baking and ever since I’ve been stuck at home for the past few weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of baking. The latest recipe from Tasty was my absolute favorite. If you love croissants, chocolate and like cream cheese (I don’t love cream cheese), you will love this “just the perfect amount of sweetness” dessert. In fact, it makes for a great breakfast as well — after all who doesn’t love chocolate croissants first thing in the morning?
