Some of my favorite spots in my neighborhood of Astoria, New York.

Astoria in Heels
Follies Astoria Center of the performing Arts

Astoria Finds: Astoria Performing Arts Center presents Follies | Astoria In Heels

Astoria is home to many great places; Astoria Park, Museum of the Moving Image, Sanfords, but my favorite is the Astoria Performing Arts Center. I had the privilege of seeing the revival of Follies last Friday. Follies is a brilliant musical production that has pizzazz and lots of spark. The storyline follows a group of dancers that once performed at a historic theater who return for a reunion thirty years later before it is torn down. This play originally debuted on broadway in 1971 and won…

Astoria Finds: C&Y Nail Salon | Astoria In Heels

I’ve mentioned before in my post here how important self-care is. For me, something as simple as getting my nails done, makes me feel really great. There is a certain feeling you get having your nails manicured properly and knowing it looks good. I indulge myself in a manicure bi-weekly and a pedicure monthly. I usually schedule it during Little Chloe’s nap time so shes knocked out the whole time while I am being pampered. There are many great nail places in Astoria and I found one place…

Sweet Janes Ice cream Astoria

Astoria In Heels

The weekend before last, we headed to Lancaster, PA, to celebrate my good friend's 40th birthday. One of my friends from Miami moved there many years ago after getting married

Sekend Sun Astoria New York

Astoria In Heels

The temperatures have really been rising here in New York. This red romper from BCBG has a low back and is lightweight which is keeping me cool this summer. I have jumped on the romper/jumpsuit trend this summer and it really makes it so much easier to get dressed when your entire outfit is just one piece! I can't believe its already the end of July, this summer is going to fast for me. I hope everyone is making the most of this hot weather and keeping cool too! Thank you for reading, Andrea…

Astoria Coffee Shop in Astoria New York

Astoria In Heels

Something all New Yorkers love is a good cup of coffee and I have found it right here in Astoria. Astoria Coffee is the cutest coffee shop that opened right around the corner from me last summer. It is located at 30-04 30th Street in the cutest space. Astoria Coffee Shop started out as a bean delivery service and has become an adorable location to come with friends and unwind over a cup or coffee from roasters all over the country. There are small tables as well as one larger communal table…

Milkflower Wood Oven pizza in Astoria, New York

Astoria Finds: Milkflower

The best part of not knowing too much about a place or not having read any reviews is that you get to be pleasantly surprised when you try it for yourself. That is exactly what happened when I went to Milkflower, a gourmet wood-fired oven pizza spot, located at 34-12 31st Ave. There is more than just pizza too, their menu includes Italian small plates, salads, and craft beers. This casual restaurant is filled with friendly staff that are very helpful in pointing you to the perfect pizza for…

Monika's cafe bar Astoria

Astoria Finds: Monika's Cafe Bar

Spring finally arrived, a little later than I would have liked, but eating outside is here again. These weekends are now spent walking around the neighborhood and exploring all the restaurants and shops we haven't even had a chance to try as yet. Astoria is constantly growing and recently there is always something new opening but there are still so many places that have been here for a while that I have not made it out to. For example, Monika's Cafe Bar found on 3290 36th Street is one such…

Best red velvet cake in Astoria New York

Astoria Finds: Il Fornaio Cafe Bakery

In Astoria, there are so many bakeries but I have zoned in on my favorite one, here in this post. Just located down the street from me at 29-14 30th avenue is Il Fornaio Bakery Cafe, a one stop shop for your bakery, deli, dessert and catering needs. Not only does this small corner shop handle so many items, they do each one insanely well! You will find mouth-watering deli sandwiches, fresh baked bread, and everything to fulfill your sweet tooth craving. I wandered into this bakery when I…

Boutique in Astoria, New York

Astoria Finds: Lockwood Style

Astoria may not be known as a fashion haven but the boutiques are slowly making their way over and will soon change that. One of those is Lockwood Style, the sister company to Lockwood Home. This adorable boutique has great fashion finds such as the cozy white jacket I have on below, which will be part of an outfit post soon! You will also find great accessories to add to your wardrobe as well and some of the cutest purses. Lockwood Style carries affordable clothing in sizes ranging from…

Astoria Sanfords restaurant for the best brunch in NYC

Astoria Finds: Sanfords

Going out for brunch was not something that I was used to doing when I was growing up in Miami. I was so used to always making and having breakfast at home as a family affair. As it became more popular, there were still very limited options on places to go. It wasn't very common for us to go but it became a treat to head out for brunch but it was always to the same one or two places that we knew of. Then I moved to New York, and now I love brunch. I can't understand not going out for brunch…

Tailor Shop in Astoria

Astoria Finds: Tailor Sop

It is so important to find a tailor who really knows their way around a sewing machine. Someone you can trust with your favorite pieces and who cares about the clothes as much as you do. I've found that person right here in Astoria and I know when I take my clothes there, I will get the honest truth about what can be done and feel safe knowing that when I do get my pieces back, I will be completely happy with it. I found Elena at the Tailor shop, located on 36th Street and 31st Avenue, last…

MP Taverna Astoria restaurant

Astoria In Heels

So in one months time, I have been to two Greek restaurants in the neighborhood. It just so happens that when anyone comes to meet me in Astoria for lunch or dinner, they always want to try a Greek restaurant, understandably so. This time we headed to Taverna Kyclades and I can see why this is one of the most popular greek restaurants around. They have a great seafood selection and the portions are plentiful. You definitely come here for authentic greek food and seafood. We made it one…
